1. Have you seen the #Surviveon35 Challenge? – I’ve been so inspired by this challenge and by those who are participating. The challenge is sponsored by Anytime Fitness and 10 bloggers are challenged to eat healthy on a budget of $35/person for a week. They are not allowed to use their current pantry supplies. The ‘winners’ will be given $1000 to donate to their favorite local food pantry. While this challenge has sparked some controversy – I completely agree with one of the participants, Bess – who shared her thoughts in this post.
2. I went for a bike ride yesterday afternoon – an easy ride with Dude to get him out of the house for a bit. Then, all evening my left shoulder was sore. WTH? This morning I went for another ride, this time it was 10 miles all by myself. My shoulder still hurt. Not while I was going, but when I’d stop or shift my left arm, I’d get a pain in my shoulder. Now it’s not as painful, but again… WTH? Then, towards the end of my ride, my left knee started to hurt. The same stupid behind my kneecap pain that I often feel when biking. Ugh. It’s been a good 2 weeks since I was on my bike – I guess that wasn’t enough. And, I guess I should pick back up with my strength exercises a little more seriously.
3. Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the day we moved in to this house. I don’t think I’ve lived anywhere for this long. Not that I’ve moved around a lot, I’ve really lived in the same general area my whole life… just 10 years seems like such a milestone.
How’s that for all over the place today? How long was the longest you lived in one house/apartment?
And…. because I don’t really have any pictures for you, here are a few more from our vacation.
