Walking on Winter Times

It's challenging to keep up with fitness goals  during Winter times.  I mean I like it that I have  some  exercise machine at our  mini gym downstairs but nothing can compare the feeling of  walking/running   outdoors.  Whenever the  winter temperature is bearable, I  make sure to go out for a walk after  dropping my kids off to school.  It's painful  during the  first 15 minutes but  as you get warmed up, it gets better.  
This week though, I did not have the opportunity because  it's snowing so  hard and  also rained so it's icy outside, too dangerous to walk.  The key is to bundle up ,before you go out so that your fingers won't feel like you are having a frost bite lol.

Blood Clot

One of our neighbors  goes on a road trip every year.  Last year, they drove all the way to Wyoming and that is so far.  He ended up  staying at the hospital  on their way home because he had a blood clot.   I believe it was a  deep vein thrombosis ,  a blood clot in the leg.  He told us that it was the most expensive trip that they did because  his hospital bill cost over a hundred thousands.  Luckily, he has a good insurance and only paid like 8 thousand.  Still  expensive, if you ask me but  when it's a matter of life and death, you would do whatever you can to get better.

The doctor told him that it could have led to pulmonary embolism if he did not check in right away.  I am glad that  he  listen to his guts and went to the hospital.  He said that he knew something was wrong because his  right leg  swelled up and he was hurting.  I think, God  was watching over him that day!

5 Enjoyable Toys for Grown-Ups

Summer holidays aren’t all about the kids, you know! It’s a great time for the grown-ups to have some fun as well. Perhaps there are some new toys you’ve been dying to try out? If so, take advantage of the great weather and treat yourself to a turn. Here are five enjoyable toys for grown-ups you might like to try out this summer.

1. Jet Skis

These fun water vehicles come in a wide range of styles and types. You can get jet skis for one rider, two or more, and there are models designed for recreational cruising as well as sportier ones that are better for racing through the water. Whatever you’re interested in, getting a little speed and power out on the water can be a great way to get your heart racing. To check out the different kinds of jet skis that are available, check out the websites of water sports specialists, such as JSW Powersports.

2. Off-Road Bikes

Whether it’s a trike, bike or quad bike, off-road driving can be a fun way to tear up a little dirt and de-stress. All-terrain vehicles for this type of activity come in a range of shapes and sizes, and you can head off road into the mud on your own or with a group. Some vehicles are built for one or two passengers only, while others are family-sized and can accommodate four or six.

3. Boats

Nothing says summer like getting out on the water. Whether it’s fishing off the side of your boat or cruising the inlets and bays of your local estuary, boats are one of the most enjoyable toys with which a grown-up can play. With a few lessons, you could soon be out on the water in either a sailboat or a cabin cruiser, enjoying the combination of wind and water, and putting a calm distance between yourself and the cares and stresses of everyday life.

4. Hot Laps

A true toy for grown-ups, racing round a racetrack at top speed is undoubtedly an enjoyable experience for those who have always wanted to drive as fast as they can without limits and all the usual rules in the way. Most people have fantasised about becoming a racing car driver at some point in their lives, so what are you waiting for? Give this a go and cross one more thing off that bucket list.

5. Toy Plane or Helicopter

If you like a little speed and action with your toys without putting yourself in any actual danger, motorised toy planes and helicopters could provide you with countless hours of enjoyment, particularly with some of the sophisticated and advanced models that are now available. Fun for all ages, this is the toy that kids play with at Christmas while the grown-up men watch on enviously, happily stepping in to “show them how it’s done” when necessary.

Taking some time to do something that makes you smile is important. What’s your favorite ‘grown-up’ toy? Have you passed down a toy to your kids that you secretly still love to play with? Comment below.

Red Bootie

These are my advanced Christmas presents from hubby.  A pair of  red Covington shoes, a red bag, and a Bongo leather jacket.

Red is my most favorite color so I was tickled with  his presents, thanks Hon!
 I think Bolt love the color red as well.
I love this shoes because it is so light and it is so comfortable to walk.  Unlike my other bootie, this one is very comfortable for my feet.
Feeling me on Christmas  day, a splash of red  can make me really happy!
Thanks Ms. Burrito for the pics!
