Going to Try Some Yoga

November 5, 2013 // Posted in Fitness, Health (Tags: ) |  No Comments

My girls at work are all abuzz about yoga, so I guess I will meet pup with them and give yoga a try. I have never done anything like yoga and don’t really understand what all the enthusiasm is about. It does not look all that hard and it does not look like it really uses up much energy. Does it really count as exercise?

I have to go buy some yoga pants and a mat. They say I can buy these things at most yoga studios, but you know me – I don’t want what everyone else is already wearing. I want to be just a little different. It’s the rebel in me!

Good Day for a Bike Ride

October 14, 2012 // Posted in Fitness, Fun, Life (Tags: , , ) |  No Comments

It’s a little windy but the day is beautiful and I don’t want to waste it sitting on the sofa and watching stupid football games. I’m going to take my bicycle and go for a ride over by the Lake. I think I have a half loaf of stale bread in my kitchen that I can carry with me on the bike. When I get to the Lake I can take a few minutes to toss the bread out on the water and feed the ducks and geese.

My bike is way back on the back wall of my garage. I can’t believe how much junk is in my garage now because I don’t want to throw it out but I’m not using it anymore. I guess I need to clean out the garage and have a big yard sale soon. But in the meantime, I just want to get to my bike and take it out on the road for a couple hours today.

More Walking

Is it just me or is everyone using their cars more and getting less exercise? I never seem to walk anywhere any more. I used to walk for a couple of miles to go places and not think twice about it. Now I get in the car to go to the grocery store just 1 mile from my house. Of course, I don’t want to lug all those bags of groceries back to the house uphill. But I could walk more if I would just get out of this bad habit of going directly to the car for everything.

Betty White

Betty White is one hard working senior citizen. She seems to be popping up every where on TV and on the Big Screen as well. She is always on the news and in magazines galore. I even heard that they are trying to get her on the latest Harry Potter film. Isn’t that something. She must be in her eighties and to think that she doing as much as she is at her age it just makes me wonder what her secret is. I’m sure she gets asked that a lot but I’ve never heard her answer. Who knows, the woman might just be flying by the seat of her pants like the majority of us are doing!

Cowboys and Indians

I understand that next Sunday the Washington D.C. Redskins are going to play the Dallas Texas Cowboys in the Redskins home turf. I’m very anxious to see how that game plays out. They are old arch enemies that  always provide their fans with a great game when they play each other. Most of the times the Cowboys kick the Redskins asses, but once in a while they surprise us and when that happens it is party time in Washington D.C., Virginia and Maryland.

The Redskins haven’t done well in decades, it would be such a hoot to see them do something worth our while this year. Guess we will see when the time comes how it all will play out.
