Colourful World

I love autumn – the trees change colour, the air is cool. This is a photo I too at a local park in North Vancouver, September 14, 2008.

3rd Street Going East

I had to take a photo going east on 3rd Street, the previous photo was going west.

I used Nik’s Effects on the photo as it was a bit bright, I was facing right into the sun.

I Can Hardly Move My Arms

I received an email last week from a friend about exercise and going to the gym. Today I can so totally relate to that email and I want to hurt the woman who taught the class I went to.

So, I decided I wanted to try a few gyms and went yesterday to Ladies Only Fitness (which is an awesome gym and very well equipped…’s on the treadmills and elipticals…..who knew). Doing the Wii Fit made me realize I wanted to try some step classes and even put out an email on Freecycle to get a step board and video. The class started out normally, I missed a whole lot of steps and felt goofy doing it. I was having fun…..well trying to have fun without tripping over my own feet. The class finished and I got down on the floor to do some push-ups and some push-ups to work the triceps.

I thought nothing of this yesterday, my legs were sore but there was a lot of pushing off and up and down off the step so I figured it would feel better in the morning. I should have been suspicious that my arms might hurt when I was putting my earrings to go out last night and my arms were shaking and they were tender just above the elbow. I just didn’t clue in.

This morning about 4:00, in bed, I tried to move my arms…..OMG, it hurt so much! It is now 8:41 and it still is hurting, I am having a hard time putting my coffeecup to my lips. I think I need to lay my toothbrush down and run my teeth along it cause to hold my right hand up to my lips is like not going to happen.

I have to go and pick up a step board and video from a lady who was nice enough to offer me one from my freecycle email. I think I won’t be doing pushups anytime soon or working on my triceps. Gotta give those babies a rest!

I went out and took a photo this morning of my street – it is so quiet on a Sunday morning

Isak – September 08

Isak spent the day with friends at the park.
I managed to get several
photos of him that day.
All the more to scrap with.

More Wii Fit and Other Stuff

Well I unlocked the free run a week ago and I have been doing 30 minutes of running this week. I plug in the Ipod and just run on the spot for the 30 minutes. I am enjoying it and not doing too bad either. The first time I ran 4.67 miles and tonight I ran 4.811 miles. Not too bad if I do say so myself.

Last night Isak had his first lesson with the saxophone, we went to Windsor Secondary School and the band teacher there went through all the important stuff on the sax, like the reed, putting the reed in the mouthpiece, putting the sax together, taking it apart and cleaning it. I found out some important info and Isak and I are going to go to Long and McQuade and pick up a new cleaning kit, a new neck strap and a stand. He wants to practice so he will definately need a stand. I am also going to look for something rolling so he can transport it back and forth to school. It is pretty heavy for him to carry when he has to walk so many blocks.

We also went to his open house at the school, met up with his teacher, Mr Palmer who spoke very highly of Isak. Was very nice to hear.

Here is a layout I did awhile back of some photos I took on the seawall
