windy weekend

Well here it is Monday morning. Where the heck did my weekend go? I had a great weekend. Went for a long bike ride into the wind. BOTH WAYS. Well ok, that might be an exaggeration. However, my legs felt like spaghetti noodles by the time I got home. I would have quit had I not had to keep biking to get I saw The Bounty Hunter ( thanks to my friend ) and then went out to my daughter's house to see everyone. YIKES! She was in her 1st no smoking week last week. In other words...DUCK! She can be wicked if she wants to be. Honestly, who can't be wicked, right? She knows it and told me to go home. I said gladly. It is nice we have that kind of relationship. I had a nice time with everyone though. We went to the park. Everybody. Usually it's just me and the kids. My daughter and I walked around the park and talked. It was nice. I do love that kid.

I looked all over for a couple of kites to take out there. When did they stop making kites? I looked at 3 places...nothing. Oh well. We did bubbles instead. My poor SIL had a chipmunk cheek cause by an infected tooth. OUCH! Sunday was church and then I was suppose to go to see wild flowers with a friend, but it got canceled. Next week maybe week.

Food was alittle crazy yesterday. Over did with the WW chili, but it is what it is. Pushing the H20 and eating right today. I didn't do as much as I wanted to do yesterday. Just a short bike ride. Today I walked 40 mins here at work and rode the bike to work. Double workout. As I look out the window I can see the wind is picking back up again. YIKES! Another chance to burn some calories on the way home. Noddle legs here I come.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Keep the mood and the food real!


  1. it was windy here in So Cal on Saturday - hard to walk or ride against the wind... lol
    Have a great week. I have a giveaway that ends tomorrow on my blog - go for a visit and enter if you like.
    Love to you

  2. Noodle legs indeed!
    Days like that build character AND muscles, right?
    At least that's what they tell us.

  3. I have noodle legs today too! AND also biked bothways in the husband wanted to know if it was up hill both ways in the snow too when I told him this. LOL!

  4. I like your term - noodle legs - that is so fitting!

  5. Oh man, I remember the quitting smoking days. Tough sledding, for sure. I'm so glad that I don't have to go through that again. Thinking good thoughts for your girl.

  6. Way to go on all the bike riding Dana. You are doing so terrific with your exercise and it just seems like it's all in a fun way in spite of the noodle legs lol. Glad everything is going well with your daughter even the grouchies from the no smoking. I'm sure as time goes on it will get easier for her.

  7. You are a trooper riding your bike into the wind like that!! Hope you have an excellent evening.

  8. hey did you like bounty hunter???

  9. that really is great that your daughter can be honest and tell you straight up "hey, i'm moody today"...that way, she doesn't even give herself the chance to take it out on you! because as we know, unfortunately, it is so tempting to take things out on others sometimes.

  10. I have to admit that when i did my 5K walk today my legs felt like lead :) But we don't give up do we?
    I'm glad you have a good relationship with your daughter

  11. I stayed inside today. we had torrential rain downpours. it was nasty and cold.

    been slacking on exercise too. not so good here girly.


Tell me what you think!
