My husband would cry & every gym needs one of these

Sadly I am not working Pro Am this year. Getting in & out of the car is still a challenge and I can only imagine trying to do that with the golf cart 50+ times a day. I think Mike is secretly happy because I no longer have a chance to see his fav – Bill freaking Murray in person. If that ever happened, I have a feeling Mike would actually cry. Or die. Or both.

So instead of wallowing in my sad state of not making folks from all over the world happy and missing out on celeb sightings, we are spending our extra time together quite well.

Yesterday we walked to Cannery Row for lunch at the Fish Hopper. The last time we ate there was before we moved here. We came to look for a place to live. One of the cool things about writing a blog is you can look back and see what you did.

Our trick to eating at touristy restaurants is to ask for the secret local menu. Most restaurants especially on Fishermans Wharf & Cannery Row have them but you have to ask. (They usually ask for an ID.) We also score free parking in Fishermans Wharf Mon-Thr.

I had a grilled chicken salad the chef whipped up with balsamic dressing. That orange/red thing on the upper right was papaya and it was my first time trying it. Totally a winner! But I kinda already knew it would be since I love tropical fruit.

I did a lot more walking than anticipated so I spent some quality time with the foam roller and hung out with Bam on the patio until the repairman showed up. Our washing machine keeps giving us an error code and I finally got tired of babysitting it. Of course it’s out of warranty, but luckily it is a known issue with LG and they are paying for the service & repair. Our day = made!

The evening was spent at the gym & farmers market with Heather working abs & arms. Every gym needs an ab basketball machine. Too bad it doesn’t spit out tickets for cool stuff like a glass of wine post workout. Now, wouldn’t that be nice!?


And a creeper dude giving you the thumbs up. PS Heathers scored 23 shots in 1:30 so she kinda rocks.


Now everything from the waist down is dead. If my hip falls off this is why.

Probably, most likely, most definitely not my smartest life decision. So today I will slow down and take it easy. Take it eeeeeeeasy…..take it eeeeeeeeaaaasy…..

What was the last new to you food you tried? Did you like it?

What is your favorite piece of equipment at the gym?

What do you do for a living?

Bam wanted to participate today. His job is to chew his butt and collect cans. It’s kinda a tough job for a guy without thumbs.

  1. What was the last new to you food you tried? Did you like it? I don’t even remember. I have very picky….

    What is your favorite piece of equipment at the gym? It has to be between the treadmill and leg press or leg extensions.

    What do you do for a living? I am a Project Manager/Functional Analyst working with SAP. AKA – I do computer stuff 🙂

  2. Or how ’bout some tickets for a free bag of Cheetos from the snack bar?! Based on their pricing structure, that probably only sets them back about $0.10 right? 😉

  4. What a cool ab machine!!!
    I could eat (or just hang out) with that gorgeous view every day!!!
    I don’t know exactly what I do for a living – I own and run an event venue but don’t make any money doing it:) Good thing my husband supports us.

  5. I am the Group Fitness Director at a really big Y here. I LOVE my job with every fiber of my being, but I work so much, my house is a mess, and I don’t know if we’ll ever have kids.

  6. Great post! Beautiful view & could totally go for sunshine & coffee right now!


  7. Last new food was quinoa (I know I’m late)
    My favorite piece of gym equipment is the bike I use for cycle.
    I’m a clinical research coordinator for breast cancer research

  8. Last new food was avocados and I wasn’t a fan :(. My favorite piece of equipment at the gym is the squat rack. I am a paramedic and an emergency nurse for now. In 3 months, I graduate from nurse practitioner school.
