Well the girls and I walked 5 miles today! The weather was perfect and we did a route along the Erie Canal near my sister's neck of the woods. The only not so good thing....when we got half way through our walk (at the turn around point) there was an Abbott's Custard shop! Abbott's is the famous ice cream place in our area. It started out at the beach near us and then opened up branches in various towns nearby. The custard is to die for! So my sis says "Let's get an Abbott's." And I said okay. No fight put up at all on my part. That's the bad part about working out with my sisters! When we're together we either all stand up or all fall down!
Anyway - we each ordered a kiddie cone. And as we're eating them and bemoaning that we were just negating all the hard work we did - sis says "Naah. Normally we'd have driven here to do this an ordered the big cones! This time we walked 2' 1/2 miles to get a kiddie cone and we're walking 2 1/2 miles back home when we're done."
She was right. And even though it sabotaged my eating plan somewhat today - I don't feel all that bad. Actually - I feel quite sore! But in a good way! And as of right now I've logged 12,6000 steps on my pedometer! Yay!
Tomorrow, spring break will be behind me and I already have 3 sub jobs lined up next week. Back to packed lunches, no snack temptations and getting up early.
On another entirely different note - Linda, over at Pointing The Way has bestowed upon me my first ever blog award! The "Good Chat Award" (see side bar). I believe that I am now to bestow this upon 6 other deserving bloggers. So here you go:
First to Sharron aka Cactus Freak ~ because she makes me laugh with her funny stories and humorous take on life!
Next to Diana aka Scale Junkie because she is just awesome the way she has rallied us all together for the Healthy you Challenge (!) and for the wonderful way she inspires us with her posts!
Next to The Grumpy Chair Dieter (who's name I don't even know!) because she is so much fun to read with her dry wit (and I love the nicknames she has for her family!)
And then there's Pattie at Attitude Changes Everything. She is my co-hort here - the one I feel a real kinship with since we're both at the top of that proverbial hill right now...lookin' down the other side together!
And I can't forget CCC from CCC's Journey to less of Me. Because she doesn't post enough (hint!) and I love her posts when she does!
Lastly Hanlie at Fertile healthy. Her adventures in South Africa are amazing to read and She's doing this really neat post card swap that you all should check out!
There you have it! There are actually SO many more of you that I read every day - you ALL deserve the Good Chat Award!
Happy Sunday All!
