Allergy Season

Goldenrod and thistles in full bloom. . . .

But precious little children are still out there.

And so are we!

In the county park . . .

Click on pictures to enlarge.

Summertime! Enjoying the fresh melons and organic berries. . . and other fresh fruit.

Making sure we get some good protein every time we eat:
ground bison, grass fed pesticide-free beef, organic free-range eggs and chicken, organic low fat yogurt, small amounts of a variety of nuts.

... And trying to work a few fresh local seasonal vegetables in to our menus.

Some supplements I'm taking right now:

D3 5,000 mg (in addition to a good supply of sunshine)
turmeric extract
NOW brand Thyroid Energy
Resveratrol (in addition to eating those fresh organic grapes)
Rainbow Light, Active Seniors multivitamin
some calcium and magnesium when I think of it . . .

This past week Sweet Pea and I went to the park every day for an hour at around 7 or 7:30am and another hour at 5pm.
Temp at 5 was usually in the low to mid 80's with substantial humidity. Ugh.
We are training for . . . well, we are training for something I guess.
Also hoping to lose a little extra weight. Needing to travel a little lighter!

Providence Half / Age Group Award

This award arrived in the mail last week... much classier than it looks here.
The clever photo reveals no evidence of flabby flesh older than age 50!

My choice of dessert ... a fresh fruit bowl ... bare and undressed (that's a little plain yogurt on the side)

Last weekend we discovered a new route for a training run.
Minnesota is in bloom.
