SD - Day # 9

If you're only reading today to see if I lost weight Friday the answer is I weighed in this morning (Saturday) and am still at be expected.  Nevertheless, I am still enjoying my daily Subway Club.........well, Friday it was a Subway BLT.....same exact calories, but with bacon!  Even better the Subway BLT only costs $5.  Nice get that bacon taste.....I read this little excerpt yesterday:

"New studies show that not only is bacon good for you but foods cooked in bacon grease are healthy and can help raise HDL (good cholesterol) and lower the bad (LDL). Metabolism is also increased as foods are digested giving subjects more energy. A bonus side effect are the endorphins produced when bacon is consumed making the subjects 83% happier than subjects who did not eat bacon. One additional note is that eggs go well with bacon."

I just knew that had to be!  Seriously, I know this is probably just a spoof someone put on Facebook, but it made me happy anyway!

About mid morning, after finishing the blog, and doing a little more sorting out of stuff in the trailer I don't need I took my bike ride to the top of Mt. previous best time for the 4.5 mile ride to the top was 26 minutes, 35 seconds I believe.....well, Friday was a new personal best when I topped out at 25 minutes 15 seconds!  Instead of heading straight back to RJRP I rode around Fairmont Lake on the way home adding about 1.5 miles to my normal total coming in at just over 10 miles for the ride in 51 minutes.

Another spectacular day at the top of Mt. Rubidoux

We haven't been to the movies in a while, and had wanted to see "Escape Plan" with Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenager so we headed over to Moreno Valley to the Regency Theaters......that last place in the area still screening the movie.  There was also a car we wanted to look at near the theater (2005 Ford Escape) so it was a perfect combination.  The car looked good in the pictures, but when we got there the first thing we both noticed was it smelled like an ashtray, and then while I'm processing that the owner says "oh, and if you test drive it you will notice the transmission slips once in a while"......hmmm...that would have been good to disclose in the ad, huh?  Thankfully we were there to see the movie anyway so it wasn't a wasted trip.  That was probably the shortest car inspection we have done....just about 45 seconds from beginning to end!

We had budgeted time to test drive the car, so when the inspection ended in less than a minute we had about 45 minutes to kill so we headed to the local Subway to get my foot long sub (TLE had brought a "cold bag" with an ice pack to keep the half I didn't eat cold until we got home).....that BLT was delicious!

We were pleasantly surprised to find out that this theater only shows previously run moves, and they only charge $2 per person for the matinee....something to keep in mind for any other movies we want to catch up on.....I think we'll go back to see Captain Phillips next week.

There is another Santana wind coming Saturday, so we'll have to batten down the hatches, as it were, again......I was planning to have my coach professionally waxed Saturday, but that's been put off due to the high wind warnings.....last week it was rain that postponed the waxing....this week wind....don't you just love it?

By the time we got home it was dark, and the temperature was dropping so we headed inside for the night.  There was really nothing on TV to watch so TLE spent the evening reading, and I searched for cars.....I'll be looking at a Mini Cooper Saturday afternoon in Chino Hills....yep, we're looking at everything right now....not just Jeeps anymore.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Glad to see you gave up on used C7's most all just wore out. But if your still in mind for a Jeep at good prices the Cherokees Sport nice 2 door with a automatic that is just great for towing if you ever need to go that way. Just saw one (1998) come thru the shop last week with 428000 on it. Before I got into a 5er this is the only toad I would look for and its great in sand (beach) or snow.
