Exhausted and Tired. Oh So Tired

I don't know what got into us yesterday, but we got busy early and stayed that way the rest of the day. Sadly, for the first time this summer, we broke out the kayaks. I know, I know... It's July and I finally took my kayaks out. Which is better than last year when we didn't take them out at all.
Can we go yet? Can we? C'mon! Put the camera away and let's go!
Emmitt was so happy to be out with us without those pesky siblings.
There's a duck! Let's go see the duck! Paddle! I can swim faster than this!
Tucker and Shiela are also kayak trained but Shiela is just old for this and sitting in the kayak isn't so comfortable for her anymore. Tucker, well he's just a bit prissy and impatient and to be honest doesn't enjoy the kayak like Emmitt does. To be honest, he doesn't swim so well either so...
You can pet me too you know...
And Emmitt got to be with his favorite person in the WHOLE world. I'm the one that saved his ass from death by freezing, but am I the favorite? No...

Then we came home, did a couple little things, then hit the rock gym. The Rock Gym. I haven't climbed in a couple 4+ years, which equals soreness, blisters, and I'm just surprised I can type today. I forced myself to knit just to make my hands work this morning. I managed to climb eight routes before my left hand gave out and wouldn't let me do much else, but I hope to get back into it since the local gym changed owners again and is cleaner, updated, and for the summer until I get better again, empty.

I tried a route that almost made me cry. I remember when I used to climb routes like it to warm up for the good ones. I ate them for breakfast. It kicked my ass and I feel it. Hell, I felt it yesterday, along with the shame and irritation. So we went to the movies last night before I walked the kids before bed

Why all this jumping back into activity? Because I've been lazy. And because one of the guys at the retreat inspired me to get back into it. I haven't gained a lot of weight back, but I have gotten lazy again. I have stuck with my goal to walk the kids before sitting down to knit or spin, which is probably why I haven't gained all my weight back. But let's face it, I want to do more.

So, I am back on My Fitness Pal, and dutifully logging my food and exercise. I am even using my heart rate monitor. It makes me feel good that My Fitness Pal's calorie calculations are so very close to what my heart rate monitor comes up with.

Anyway, it's about time to head out with the kids. Bob took the kids out while I wrapped up the gussets  on my socks. So I have to get them out next. They're having the downtown crazy days sale this weekend so that's the plan for our walk. And believe it or not, I'm considering taking the kayaks out again this afternoon. I have to even out the really weird sun burn (It's more of a scald, not a burn. Barely pinked up) on my right arm. I put on sunblock and only that strange little spot. It's quite odd. I sprayed, rubbed, and there's this strange streaky splotch on the arm.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
