And we're (almost) outta here

Just want to wrap up the workout week before I take my walk. We're then leaving for Kentucky.

Yesterday I did Week 9, Day 1 (the last workout) of Cto5K – five-minute warm-up and cool-down, with a 30-minute run in between. If the goal is to actually run 3.1 miles (5K) in that 30-minute window, I came close:
I might try again Saturday or Sunday in Kentucky.

If the goal is to improve your pace, I've done great! Here's Week 1:
I also did the bodyweight exercises – squats, lunges, pushups and kickbacks on Tuesday and yesterday. Most likely will do them in our room at the lodge tomorrow, as well, since I won't be going to yoga. But I'll have to figure out a way to do triceps dips instead of kickbacks, because I don't want to pack dumbbells.

Don't let this Friday the 13th bring you any bad luck. Instead, let your light shine and have a great weekend. Probably won't blog, other than the daily photo. Today's word is "unexpected," and I've no idea what will come of that. Or even if anything will. This might be the most difficult prompt so far, and it wouldn't be the first one I've skipped.

Have a great weekend ... I'm planning to!

Update on the water: the circuit breaker tripped, either due to a power surge when the electricity came back on last night OR when lightning struck in the area. My neighbor's electric fence control box got hit in the same area. He was able to reset the circuit breaker for us and we have WATER! I think I'll go do a load of laundry. Heh.


Well. Well, well, well. Should this morning's scale number be divided between two weeks, or did all of it happen this past week? It's an easy number to divide, and I've been consistent for two weeks, so it should probably be split, doncha think?

That means I lost three pounds for each of the last two weeks. SIX pounds total. Excuse me, I mean
SIX!!!!!! I'm going to do everything I can to stay on track while I'm gone this week. There's little more I can promise. I'm really motivated to keep it up. The dumbbells are packed (and my luggage weighs a ton!), I'm taking a thermos of water in the car and I know where are the rest stops are between here and Nashville. I think I'll walk a bit at each of them, then walk again when I arrive at my destination. Hope to get a total of 80 minutes done by the end of the day. SIX!!!!!!

And the winner is …

Kitten with a Whiplash, who left two comments and it was the second (which had nothing to do with the contest) which won the prize. Congratulations, and since the Kitten was the only commenter who expressed any interest in actually winning it, I'm so glad the Universe took care of it. Heh.

What a weekend! But first, how was yours? I hope you did some fun stuff and got some necessary stuff done, as well. It's all about balance.

Saturday was our fun day (but we had to drive, drive, drive to get there and then drive, drive, drive home again, all in one day, boy was I tired). We went to my husband's granddaughter's first birthday party. In addition to a sweet little doll, suitable for ages 0+ (meaning it has no parts that will come loose, and do you know how difficult it is to find dolls for babies when you live in the Middle of Nowhere?), I made her this:

I haven't sewn anything in a month of Sundays, so was a little apprehensive about finishing it on time, but this p…
