So much for updating a week’s challenges in one blog entry. I changed my mind, and it’s become one entry a day, apparently. 🙂 Apparently, I’m too verbal for it to be just one sentence or something. *le sigh*
Success on both Primal Stride Five at Five goals. Out of bed at 6:31 (okay, so a minute late, but who’s counting?) and 17 laps done in my garden.
I also drank my salty electrolyte water before walking, so this is good. But I also got a bit lightheaded near the end of the walking. That lightheadedness is still with me after making breakfast. I hope it’s not going to be one of those kinds of days.
I also woke with a headache, the kind caused by neck tension, so did my neck exercises. That, as I think of it, is the most likely cause of the lightheadedness.
Ah well. Onwards and upwards, ho!
I’ve also included a photo of our front garden. It’s not a large garden, but it works for us. 🙂
From the left… First there’s the decorative palm, then a jasmine tree with small white flowers. The jasmine tree is small – I hacked most of it off a couple of times to keep the papaya mealy bug in check. Then we have a bush with yellow-polka dotted leaves, then another large decorative palm.
Then a bush which produces clumps of red flowers with my thebu (Costus speciosus) in the middle. Thebu is an edible leaf that tastes a bit like ginger, and we quite like it. 🙂 Then a potted plant with reddish purple leaves and a bush with spiky red flowers. Following that is my clump of lemongrass which I don’t water frequently enough.
Then, off by its lonesome on the far right is a volunteer papaya tree. Still very young, of course, being less than a foot tall. The papaya tree appeared about a month or so ago.

Nice picture! It’s funny that you and the lemon grass both have hydration problems. Now that you’re solving yours, maybe you’ll remember the poor little lemon grass 8=)
It is a pretty garden. And keep up the walking and hydration. I won’t tell anyone about the 1 minute late thing 9=)

I like that you have papaya trees randomly showing up in your yard.
