Last night I played Euchre
with a group of wonderful ladies
that I have been doing all kinds of exciting activities
with for so so many years.
In terms of this Euchre thing.
12 of us get together
at the home of the chosen for the month
we each host a different month.
Yes...we play cards
yes...we catch up
yes...we laugh...loud...sometimes even cry
but the real reason
I love more (well almost) than any other
is the food
Oh sure...there were veggies and fruits and cheeses
I did have a couple of red peppers with hummus
but.... mostly SUGAR!!
Everyone is always joking with me
about my insatiable craving for SUGAR
can't get enough of it
last night at about 10:00 ish
I cracked open a Bright Blue Jones Soda
in none other than Blue Bubblegum flavour
...to die for (kinda tastes like Cream Soda)
Delish I tell ya....Delish!!
It's fine at the time
the next day.....Oh my gosh
you gotta get rid of all of that sugar rush!!
FLUSH.....drink tons of water and then some more
I plan to garden this weekend as part of my fitness regime
I know...doesn't sound very strenuous you say
well...ya gotta start somewhere!
Beautify your yard
Weed the flower beds
Spread some mulch
Trim the hedges
Plant some flowers
Work in the yard for 45 minutes
Help an elderly person in a neighborhood
it will be good for you both!
45 minutes = 205 calories burned
I'll actually put on my workout clothes
as inspiration and who knows
I might feel the urge to break a sweat
crazier things have happened
What physical activity are you
going to be doing this weekend ?
Happy Friday Friends....make it count!!!
