so this weekend i went down the shore for my Mom to see some of her friends and for a change of scenery - my town and the town next to it is VERY historical - and we now have a main trail with side trails that go from my town to the next - so crazy me with my neck and shoulder injuries - i did a 3 hour hike/job/power walk/high bench lunges/and squats -- not to self - NOT a good idea to jog when having neck issues - here's my view of my 3 hour work out (ps i'm back to wearing my neck brace and muscle relaxers - nothing is gonna stop me from getting this weight off - this Gemini doesn't quit, not in my vocabulary)

and OFF i go!

the main path have these tell-all's about the history of the 2 towns the trail goes through - very interesting to read

my town of 20+ years - "Dog Town" is an historic part of my town

start of my journey

this birds house does not like visitors apparently

cue from nature - always have a bridge ready to go - you never know when your gonna need that bridge in life - so be careful who you cross paths with

nature showing use to hold one another - we all need a support system in place! - true love

doesn't it look like an owl head?!

yes indeed - i make traffic stop for me :o)

life gives you the choice - to keep on going or turn back around - i voted to keep on going and going


they say when a tree falls in the Forest do you hear it? - well i vote YES! - The Universe hears it and comforts its fallen soldiers!

another cue from nature to learn from - "lean on me" - it's beautiful to know even nature knows how to help one another - now if only 'humans' could act the same way

be the last one standing no matter what the battle your fighting - you'll be sure to win!

this tree i'm in love with - bends over backwards to help support the rest - we should all learn what nature shows us everyday - we just gotta open our eyes, heart, and soul to realize the signs they are laying out for us!

hard core workout completed - 3 hours of nothing but guts and glory fighting through the pain - no pain no gain!


ps - i have a rant to go on - i might upset some of my readers - but 1 thing about me is that i tell it like it is and how i feel - i don't mind upsetting others when it comes to our enviorment - it's my blog and i'll rant if i want too - coming tomorrow! - hint: about saving our earth and our forests along with its habitat .. *boiling already over what i will be talking about*
