Once again I am humbled by the love I receive from you fellow bloggers out there. I am truly amazed at the support shown by people in this other world. Thank you all so very much!
After I published my last post, I took Boomer out to walk somewhere. I wasn't sure where I was headed, I just wanted to go somewhere quiet. I drove to the furthest staging area for the Alameda Creek Trail and headed out toward the bay. We had a nice quiet three mile walk.
The next day was my birthday and what a day I had! Keith, Sara, Sterling, Loren and I drove up to San Francisco where we met my mom and one of my brothers at AT&T Park. We were lucky enough to see the Giants win that day. I was happy with my rice krispy baseball.
It was yummy - covered in white chocolate frosting!
After the game, the five of us (minus mom and Steve) went to Coit Tower.
I had no idea you could no longer takes the stairs up the 21 stories. I was really looking forward to that. The girls were thrilled to hear we were going to be taking an elevator to the top.
Anyway, we got some great views from the top.
After we left Coit Tower, we drove down Lombard Street because Sterling had never seen it. Then we went into North Beach for pizza. It was such a great day with my family. ;)
I have accepted two new challenges for the month of June which I'm quite excited about.
This is the first one - A GREEN SMOOTHIE EVERY DAY FOR 30 DAYS! I had my first one today (apple, strawberries, banana and spinach - lots of spinach). I will be replacing my breakfast with a smoothie for the month. It wasn't bad. Honest! There are so many recipes too so I can try a bunch of different ones.
The second one is "Run 3 miles/day for the 30 days of June". I move every day anyway so this shouldn't be too tough for me to do. I figure instead of walking Boomer for two miles, I can run three miles if I need to. When I first accepted this challenge, I was under the impression we were to run the miles but now Rick says we can walk if we need to - as long as we get three miles completed every day. Today I ran five miles. NO, I don't get to carry two miles over to tomorrow either.
Now it's time for my May totals. Did May seem like it was never going to end? Look how full of exercise my calendar was. Pretty darn busy!
