Trail Walk

The weather was really nice today. It was 65 degrees! I decided to get back on the trail and get my exercise in. I walked 2.31 miles on the trail. I was sweaty by the time I got home. I walked on the Glover-Archbold Trail. I got some good exercise in today. Yay!

Egg Casserole

When I got up this morning I decided I wanted something different for breakfast. I was tired of eating cereal or spending the time to scramble eggs and all that. Instead I took those eggs and put them in a container. I put some cheese and ham and some old bread and made an egg casserole. While it was cooking I decided to do my walk. I only walked 1.33 miles while it was cooking. But the casserole was perfect! It was small enough to have for breakfast and was cooked just right! It was delicious!

Back To The Hall

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! I hope you took some time to think about his contributions to our country and our world.

I got back to walking in the hall to get my exercise all at once instead of spreading it out throughout the day. I walked 2.16 miles in about 40 minutes. And of course since there is nothing to look at in the hall, I have a hall picture to share.

For dinner my wonderful husband baked a chicken! It was delicious.

By the end of the day I had walked 4.43 miles and got 10,180 steps.

Snow Walk

It snowed last night. We only got about 1 inch but it was enough to get my husband out of school. I walked inside today. I walked 2.03 miles. But instead of taking yet another picture of the hallway, I stuck the camera out the kitchen window to show what it looked like today. I love how the sun is hitting the tops of the trees in the afternoon.

Bird Watching Walk

Today I walked 2.02 miles at Huntley Meadows Park in Alexandria. I went there to go bird watching. I added 6 birds to my count for the year. I’m up to 8 birds now!

Here are the birds I saw.

#8 Wood Thrush

#7 Tufted Titmouse

#6 Golden-crowned Kinglet

#5 Pileated Woodpecker

#4 Red-bellied Woodpecker

#3 Lincoln’s Sparrow

Date Night Walk

2.76 miles today. I went so far because I counted the distance from the car to the restaurant for date night dinner. We went to 2 Amy’s for pizza. It was good! We had a nice bottle of wine can caught up on the date. It was a lovely evening.

National Mall Walk

Today I met my friend Sean at the National Mall for a walk. We walked 2.18 miles on the mall but I walked to and from the metro so my total miles today was 5.19. WOW! I did such a good job. I got 73 minutes of exercise according to the Apple Watch. It was a really good day!

On another note, the republican tax scam passed today and Trump will sign it soon. It is a disastrous tax plan. While we will see tax cuts in the beginning, most people will have their taxes rise in the next 10 years. This will also add 1.5 trillion to the deficit. I am just sick with this administration. Everyday he does something to ruin this country. And we’re all going to pay for it in the future. 😞

Laundry Room Walk

I walked 2.12 miles today. I started in the basement and decided to take a picture of the laundry room. The weather actually got a little warmer today. It got up to 56 degrees. But when I went to walk it got really dark and cloudy so I decided to stay indoors yet again. Tomorrow and Wednesday will be different.

Concert Walk

Today I only walked .55 miles. This is because we were so busy doing other things that I got all my exercise in without having to do a specific workout. We went to the Joy of Christmas concert at the National Cathedral. We then went to dinner at Cafe Deluxe. The concert was wonderful and we had a great time. Here we are at the concert.

Hallway Pictures

After a long string of low distance walks, I decided to do a long one today. I walked 2.84 miles today. So close to 3! And since I have completed the door decoration posts, I’m back to posting pictures from the hallway. I’ll try to be more creative in the future.

Our Door Decoration

Only 1.56 miles today but I had already done a lot of other active projects that helped me close the exercise ring so I wasn’t too concerned about distance today. Here is our door decoration for this year. This concludes the door decoration posts for this year.

Door Decoration 11

I DID get back to walking today. I walked 2.17 miles today. I even broke an exercise record on my Apple Watch. I exercised for 63 minutes…and that means my heart rate got above the normal rate for 63 minutes. Here is another ugly door decoration. It’s bad because it’s on top of another door decoration they have on their door all the time.

Door Decoration 10

2.07 miles today. I feel better about getting over 2 miles today. If it were only warmer and I could walk outside. I mean I could walk outside but I don’t like walking in the cold. And it’s going to be even colder tomorrow. It’s supposed to be in the teens when we get up tomorrow. Yikes! I’ll stick to walking inside. I saw this ugly door decoration on today’s walk.
