The Whole FAM-DAMILY Is After Me Now!!!

Geez, now both of my little darlings are on my case!! The Primary Child had laughed at my inability to get pictures posted. Just because he is the family's "Techno Nerd" doesn't mean we all can be, or want to be. However, after working with this darned thing for about an hour yesterday, and writing down every move I made, I can now find my pictures. So there, Smart Ass PC!!

Just remember, dear children, I am an old person. You have both been taught to respect your elders....THAT MEANS ME!!!!!!!

My next move is to get the pictures in their proper order. This picture is of this morning's cardio on the bike. Golf was cancelled, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to get a bit of an edge on The Perfect Child. I'm trying to see if I can get her to have to ride, walk, glide 3 hrs. this Sat. to catch up. I WILL NOT go down in defeat easily. :) (or quietly) (or politely) This is yesterday afternoon's cardio effort. I was not really busy in the late afternoon, so I hopped on the bike again.....minutes are mounting, PC!!!

(This is supposed to read 40:45) Gotta work on the flash thing. This is my morning's cardio yesterday. I thought this might be it for the day, but the opportunity to accumulate more minutes presented itself later in the day, so I jumped at the chance. "Jumped" might be too strong a word, but I did walk quickly. :)

Lest everyone think I'm really stupid, I do know how to cut and paste on the computer, but for some reason, I'm not able to do it in this blog space. YET!!! Another hour or two, and I should be good to go. BUT, for my Primary Child to suggest we have another challenge on picture posting speed was just mean....especially since I'm already old and cranky. This does not bode well for his name remaining in the will. :)
One last word for the Perfect Child......can you say "Insurmountable Lead"?????
After two rounds on the bike, I have to say my legs were less than steady. In between the two rounds, I did the stairs twice again. Can't count that, but I do like it as a change of pace. We have 16 stairs from the downstairs to the main level, then 16 from the main level to the upper level. I do them both at once, and try to do it at least twice, but really aim for 3 times. That third trip just wasn't in the cards yesterday. Today, it is. I have also been neglecting my strength training, and my right shoulder is telling me it is time to return to it with a little more dedication. Especially since today is "Turn it Up Tuesday", I must really "Git 'er done!" Weigh In Wednesday looms on my horizon, and I want to at least give it my best shot.
Once again......"INSURMOUNTABLE LEAD".....let's all say it again. :)


  1. INSURMOUNTABLE LEAD! YAY! I never thought to do the stairs at my house. What a great idea! Great job on the cardio. Totally inspiring!

  2. KIDS ARE A PAIN!! I think that says it all, but I will explain a little lest you think of me as a grumpy butt. They are a pain in the heart (because we love them so much) and a pain in the butt (because we love them so much).

  3. Holy Crap that's alot of stairs. I bitch about the 10 I have to climb a million times a day. That is a good workout in it's self.

    Kids.....you can't beat 'em! Oh wait, yes you can. lol...just kdding of course. I am a laugh riot to my kids. I get them back by embrassing them every chance I get. It works!

  4. You crack me up. The PC may be riding all weekend if you keep this up.

  5. What the *#$% happened to "Oh poor me and my bad knee? The kids are ganging up on me to put me into an early grave. Blah, blah, blah?" I'm officially ignoring any future whining and complaining from you. You're obviously capable of a lot more than you lead on, which is good for your health but very annoying to me.

    I will have to find a way to get a treadmill into my office so I can just hop on at a moment's notice, which is a luxury that you have and I do not. Or I'll have to resort to walking/running at a night and if I get mugged you're going to feel really, really bad.

    We'll see who gets the last laugh this week.

  6. Oh, now she's playing the guilt card!! If she gets mugged, it's your fault. Don't fall for it V!! :-)

    (I bet Thanksgiving really is a blast at your house!!)

  7. Thanksgiving IS a lot of fun at our house!! I don't guilt easily, so I'm still going to go about my cardio business as usual. She will just have to catch up however she can.

    BTW, you have stairs in your house, too, ya know. I'd let you count that, even tho' you won't let me count my stairs. :)

  8. You are so rocking this!

    As for copy/paste, are you using the control key for pasting, "Ctrl-V". I find that easier to use.

  9. Had to smile at the title of your post. The "fam-damily" is about the extent of my mom's cursing. :-D
