September 1st!

Today was warmer than yesterday. 33 degrees Celsius as were pulling into our driveway. At 10 to 6. On September 1st! I think we’ve been setting a new record every day.
I would like to point out that I am not complaining. Yes it is to hot to do much moving around. Husband didn’t even want to go out and light the BBQ after work today so we had salads and snack plates. But I sorta feel like I have to store up all of this sun and heat to get me through the winter. We did move the air conditioner from Husband’s computer room to the bedroom last night though, so we could sleep.
So, time for that month end review. I did actually work out during the month of August, even though I was not updating my sidebar. So here it is:
Aug 01: 2 hrs stacking wood
Aug 02: 80 minutes stacking wood
Aug 04: The FIRM Express Cardio DVD[30 mins]
Aug 05: The FIRM Power Half Hour DVD[30 mins]
Aug 12: 25 minute walk
Aug 14: PYL Pilates[30 mins]
Aug 16: Cardio Intervals[20 mins]
Aug 17: Fat Burning Fusion DVD[45 mins]
Aug 18: Cardio Intervals[25 mins]
Aug 24: 2o minute walk
Aug 25: Fusion Flow DVD[45 mins]
Aug 26: Barefoot Cardio DVD[45 mins]
Aug 27: 1 hour stacking wood
Aug 28: Gentle Hatha Flow #1[20 mins]
Aug 30: PYL Pilates

I’m finding, at the moment, that I do better to just keep my expectations low. Aim for short workouts. Doing what I can. I’m sure I will settle back into a routine once fall really sets in, but for now this is what works.
Two fun grocery store finds to share from our stop at SuperStore on the way home today.
Feta from Nova Scotia.
White Cheddar from PEI.
We had some of the feta in our salad tonight and it was very good. A creamy, mild tasting feta which is perfect for us as Husband doesn’t like a feta that is too strong.
Have not tried the Cow’s Cheddar yet, but looking forward to it. They make good ice cream, hopefully the cheese is just as good!
Spent a little time in the garden this evening, watering and then lounging in a chair with a magazine. It is slightly cooler outside than inside. Not a huge difference, but still welcome. And the surroundings are quite pleasant!

I envy you your warm weather - it's been cold and drizzly here for a week. The temp at night has been dropping close to the freezing mark, so I've covered things in the garden several times. Even went so far as to pick all the tomatoes and pull the plants.
Hope the hurricane doesn't affect you.

At the moment we're getting - and lots of it - but hopefully that will be it. We can do without a hurricane!

I'll try that approach -- keep the workout slow and maybe I can get through them. Worth a try.

And I'll try sending you some cool, gloomy, genuine PNW weather :)
