We've had Doctor's appointments, nothing major.
I went with a friend to learn more about her new bunny, that was pretty entertaining.
And once again, we're trying to commit to a solid eating and exercising plan (are you all sick of hearing that yet?)
I looked around online and found a program called Lose It. It's free, and allows you to set goals, track food, nutrients and all that good stuff. I will be going to Kaiser for a metabolic test, and that will tell me how much I need daily to maintain my current weight (not my plan) and give me a realistic idea of what my caloric intake should be for losing. We spoke with a dietician and will continue using low carb as a basis, but hopefully by tracking all nutrients (protein, fat, sugars and fiber) it will give us a better idea of what direction we need to take.
And of course, the fly in this ointment is always exercise.
Why is that always so hard for us? I wish I knew. It's certainly much easier when we're on the road and there are new sites to see.
That said, we've committed to do this, so today we walked a mile or so and of course I took pictures. I didn't have the camera, just my phone, but there's a lot to see.
The recent heat has brought out so many flowers.
This guy decided to come and say hello
For whatever reason, I like this picture.
I also liked this garden,
maybe it's the way the light shows through the fence.
Just before we got back home, I heard a bunch of black birds raising a ruckus. A big ruckus. Looking up in a tree, I saw a large owl. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the shot. I'll be bringing my camera from now on.
And that's it for tonight.
