Lake Hancock Hike

Image
We went to one of my favorite placed to hike today, the Circle B Bar Ranch.  It's forest, marshland and lake.  It was really, really hot out, so we didn't see much in the way of wildlife, but it was some good exercise anyway.









Food Finds - Lots of Good Stuff

Image
I've found lots of good stuff lately.   For me, a food find is something high protein, low sugar and that tastes really good.

Beanitos Black Bean Chips.  These chips have 5G of protein and no sugars in each serving.  These chips don't taste like your standard corn tortilla chips, but they are still very good and great for dipping into a fat free, sugar free salsa.
Last weekend I cooked up some baby back ribs.  I found this G. Hughes Sugar Free BBQ Sauce at Publix.  It taste just like regular sauce, without all the sugar. I highly recommend this.
Fit Crunch protein bar in the flavor peanut butter.  This bar 30G of protein and 6G of sugar.  It's dense like most high protein bars, but still really good.  It's also huge.  It took me two days to eat this bar.  The one drawback is that it is very messy.  It crumbles when you bite into it, so its not the best at work snack.  I really liked it and I will buy this brand again.

Weekend Shopping - Mostly Exercise Clothing

Image
This shopping spree was all about work out clothing.  I needed some motivation to get out and get more exercise.  These nylon tops are great for early morning walk/jogs.  They are bright and easily seen and lightweight.  I got them at Walmart on clearance.
After finding those two nylon tops I found a rack of $5 tees with cute sayings on them.  I picked out the three I liked best.  On another clearance rack I found these green capri exercise pants for $5.

I just happened upon these short spandex tights to wear under dresses.  They are very light support and I really like them a lot.
These Hanes bralettes I was specifically looking for.  I had some already and I just love them.  They give me enough support for jogging but are so lightweight that I don't feel like I'm wearing anything.  I think they are perfect and I picked up four more.
I love color so when I got to the sock isle I picked these over the white ones.

The heat/humidity is almost unbearable.  If I didn't really need to get out and exercise in the afternoons, I wouldn't go outside right now at all.  But, I do, so I'm making the most of my time out by taking a few photos on our afternoon hikes.

This is exciting.  When it's done it will be a children's water park area next to the downtown playground.  It will be great for the kids since it's summer here in Florida almost year around.
This is a library box that is kept stocked with books for the kids to read while they are at the playground.  What a great concept.

Today is was hot like the desert.  There weren't many people out, with the exception of the Pokémon Go hunters.

Today I took photos of the historical and the modern.

Here's what I captured during my afternoon walk.  I just can't stop taking photos of people playing pokemon go on their phones.  I love that there is a game that is getting people out of the house.  Anything that does that is a good thing.

These are random photos along the route we walked this afternoon.  Small town living can be challenging in many ways.  I am constantly trying to see the bright side.  So, I've decided to just take random of photos when we go on our afternoon walks.  When you look closely, there are lots of interesting things all around.

I've seen this steeple from a distance but never took the time to see what it was attached to.  It really doesn't look like it goes with the church it's attached too.







Our little down town area was crawling with people hunting pokemon.  Once these three saw my camera they tried to look like they weren't.  It's funny to see adults trying not to look like they are hunting pokemon like everyone else.
