Fitness Friday !!

~~

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

snacks....dips....chips....appies....sugar....desserts....repeat!

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

Love it

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

No yard?
Help an elderly person in a neighborhood

it will be good for you both!

45 minutes = 205 calories burned
~
Maybe
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!!!

  3. Sounds like lots of fun with all the Ladies :)
    It's always nice to have a day or evening of your own.

    If the weather can hold up, I am also wanting to get out in my garden. Haven't even started yet and there is so much to do.

    Have a wonderful weekend!
