    For many of us in the northern hemisphere, the weather is growing cooler and Fall is here.
    @craigo3154 in Australia is moving the opposite direction as spring fills the air.
    For those of us in the north, what are some of your favorite memories or joys of Fall?

    Exercised?: Yes. Walked 11 Km in 88 mins (hills - elevation gain 605m).
    Calories?: Yes.
    Tracked?: Yes.

    Was good weather so I went for a longer walk today. 11km (which is 6.9 miles). Legs feel it now :) .

    Spring is definitely here in Australia. In Melbourne we are expecting our first 30C (86F) day this season on Wednesday. Days are getting longer.

    Also managed to get out flying my FPV race quad (had spent a lot of time fixing and tuning when a motor controller burned up mid flight three weeks ago). Flying FPV (first person view) really feels like you are flying. Head mounted goggles receive a real time video feed from the model taking up your entire field of view. Looking forward to a race meet next weekend (flying around a course and avoiding obstacles).

    @joyinlife77. Your daughter sound like she's headed for the Olympics (or at least Regionals and Nationals). When I was a kid, I had a neighbour was a water polo player (who did eventually compete in an Olympics). Man can those swimmers eat. More than weight lifters at times.

    @ashsmile78. Best of luck in getting what you want for your house.

    Spent a chunk of yesterday with my daughter. We all know why MOM foot the bill. Lol We bought her a dress for her next dissertation. A couple blouses and then when I got home I ordered the skirt to go with the blouse. I am amazed to see her this heavy. I loved the top of this one dress on her so I go can I try it on do you think it will be long enough? The top was so cute it was just too tight. I put it on and I looked like an old lady in a moomoo it just hung on me. She was like where are your shoulders, where are your boobs. To make light of it I go at my waist I am not young. We both knew I needed a smaller size but we weren't going there and I stopped trying on clothes.

    Well I need to get moving till later.

    Being the middle of the month I would like to jump in and take part of the challenge. I need the structure of daily accountability. I will wait for the chance at the winners circle next month. :) Thanks!

    The two graves are taken from the Animal Cemetery at Rufford. These two are dogs that belonged to the Lords of the Abbey.
    There are more and a horse too, but his/her name has eroded from the gravestone, unfortunately.

    The top two photos are of the Major Oak at Sherwood Forest.

    I have so many more, but I didn't want to flood this post with photos!!!

    Sooo....today - Oct 15th

    Exercised?: Yes.
    Calories?: Yes.
    Tracked?: Yes.

    A six mile walk, then a 4 mile bike ride has been my exercise for the day.
    Some of that walking is to town and back, walking through a local park and nature reserve.

    Total distance travelled - 10 miles
    Total steps walked: 16,154
    Total calories burned: 698
    Total calories consumed: 1176

    An easy day today - back into my usual exercise regime next week now the celebrations are all over. Until the next birthday that is - mine in December, lol.

    A friend has given me his old bike (Voodoo Marasa) and rode to Rufford on it and by heck it was a lovely ride. The brakes were a bit dodgy and I ended up coming back with no back brake at all, lol, but I managed (he did tell me the brakes needed repairing) - but even with that fault it was such a lovely change from riding mine.
    It's now in for repair, so I'm hoping to have it back by Tuesday - fingers crossed - and I'll be using that one from now on!

    @freshslimlook - welcome to the UAC.
    @craigo3154 - great walk and nice to hear you've got the quad fixed.

    Have a lovely evening everyone...xx

    Favorite fall memories include having the day off from school to go to the county fair, going through the animal barns, the domestic exhibits and then riding the rides.

    Fall in northern Minnesota is beautiful. Our leaves change color, and the temperature is comfortable. I haven’t been out to enjoy it as much as I would like with school, but I love to hike this time of year. Fishing is also a lot of fun around fall.

    Another fall time favorite is football! Today, the MN Vikings took on our rivals the WI Packers. I partook in the festivities and took a pass day :)

    Exercise: I like to do some really long workouts, on the weekend. Today, though, I did a couple of really long workouts. I did 90+ minutes of tough bicycling and then my friend wanted to go for an 'easy' walk.

    Well, that 'easy' walk was actually a mountain hike that took nearly 3.5 hours and climbed 2200 feet. We didn't even make the last 0.6miles because we were exhausted!

    Calories: yes, under.

    Tracking: yes, everything

    I hope that you've all had a fantastic weekend.

    Also...favourite joys of fall include the cooler weather, the beautiful fall colours, and planting the flower bulbs that will bloom next spring. Great time of year:)

    @trixsey1; @carlsoda; @pears734 (the fisherwoman, who knew?), Thanks for your beautiful photos!!
    Yesterday's report: Pass Day #4. I spent the weekend with my mother who will be in her home for the next week or two before the cardiologist and team try to deal with the femoral arterial blockage. When I deal with my mother, I have not enough emotional 'bandwidth' to deal with my healthy habits. I'm out of the Winner's Circle for the first time in many months, but I do practice what I preach. I will keep reporting in every day.
    Today:
    Calories: under my limit by 535
    Tracking; ok
    Exercise: an early morning 28 minute stroll
