Catching Up....Again

Here lately I seem to be behind all the time. Oh well. Last week was pretty much a fail when it comes to exercise. I really tried to get up early every day but it just didn't happen. I was tired. I always feel better when I work out but I have to be able to crawl out of bed. 
I managed one run last week & that was Wednesday. Thursday we didn't really have anything to eat so we went to Walk On's. I did good with water & grilled shrimp salad but then this happened.

That would be Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding. It was really good. My plan was to only have a bite but of course that didn't happen. Oh well!  You can see Dean's hands in the picture as he patiently waits for me to take the picture. HA!

Friday Dean worked late so I went to Caliente with the usual suspects. 

Saturday & Sunday was a state tax free weekend so I took advantage of it. These are my new clip shoes.

I was happy to find a decent looking pair in my size. These have purple accents. This is what the bottom of the shoes look like after they put the pedal attachment on.

This is what the pedals look like.  Not that anyone is really interested in this but I was amazed the first time I saw it.

My first experience with clip shoes & pedals was when I was borrowing a bike from Cindy before I bought mine. It wasn't pretty. I didn't fall but that was only because I couldn't get clipped in. Cindy said there was an issue with those so I was hoping for a better outcome with mine. I put the shoes on yesterday & clipped in  & out my first try. I did a quick little ride down the street & was able to clip in & out while riding. It was all very exciting!!

Saturday night we ate at Lava Cantina. The food was good & my mango margarita was delish!
Deann's was called the Smooth Criminal. It was strawberry/banana.

I'm participating in another August challenge but I'm not sure how much of it will get done because I officially started my half marathon training today. I ended up skipping it Friday & Saturday & yesterday was supposed to be a rest day so I did the Saturday workout along with some weights & today I'm sore.

This morning I ran. 

3.5 mi.done! 



  1. OMGoodness, those meals and beverages look amazing!

    I have a new "love-hate" attitude about bicyclists after our vacation. We drove to Ventura, CA & got on the old coast highway all the way into OR. Twisty, with lots of sharp curves and only 2 lanes with no shoulder, and like a gazillion bicyclists. We couldn't even enjoy the vistas for fear of hitting one of them. I think it's wonderful that they are so passionate about doing that, but I truly think they are a huge hazard on certain roads.

  2. OH my...that dessert looks sooo good! I'm so behind on everything at the moment myself. :) You are so awesome with all your workouts!

  3. You make me so tire with this running, bike riding, and doing these laps! Oh, and I usually gain about 10 lbs just by looking at the scrumptous food that you show. I would take someone down for some Mexican right now, lol.

  4. The pudding looks yummy and I have not seen clip shoes myself but then again, I am not a biker. Thanks for the positives notes on Rea....Christine
