Smarter than the average bear

Today was worming day for the outside livestock. Plus we wanted to move Zoe(miniature Zebu cow) in with Zack and Zena so when the baby sitter comes to feed while we're in Vegas, she doesn't have to come in contact with those three at feeding time.And usually feeding time is much like free day for a BFLer. Just lead them to the trough and the rest is history.But for some reason when it comes to worming and moving them they sense something and it becomes an all out pain in the ass. LLamas won't go where they're suppose to, cows try to get in where we need the llamas to go, chickens are scattering willy nilly trying not to get stepped on, the horse is trying to get into eveyones prepared feed, the camel does his best impression of Chewbacca bellering(that's actually where they got Chewi's vocalizations from in Star Wars)and Susan and I are just trying to get out of this without being kicked ,stepped on,pooped on, spit at, or slobbered on. Well ,we were smarter than them today and finally succeeded and all is back to normal.
After that it was off to the bird show. This is more like a Parrots are Us for the birds. They were all due for some new toys and everyone got something to chew on.This will keep them occupied for the few days we are gone and the babysitter doesn't have to battle with getting their water and food bowls out of their cages at feeding time. Yes, they are like dealing with children, you have to be smarter than them and you have to be constantly on your toes.If not someone gets out and then the party is on. Ever see how fast a macaw can destroy a piece of wood? Fastest event ever recorded by man, lol. And now for what you have been waiting for! Cardio and flAbs:
Ab Workout: 2 sets 15 reps
Vacuums 2sets, 15 reps
Weighted reverse sit ups: same with 15 lbs
Leg thrusts same ,no weights
Weighted crunches:same(set and reps wise) with 40 lbs
Weighted leg up crunches: same
Weighted twisted sister crunches: same
Weighted twists:same
After ab w/o I did the recumbant for 20 minutes and chewed up 246 cals.
All in all it was a good workout and a good ending for week 5 of challenge 4 .
Next week, week 6 the routine will stay at 3 sets of 12 for weights, will just try to go up on some of the weight when possible.
Well that's it , and hopefully when I get back from Vegas I'll be wealthier and more importantly, smarter!

    Farmer, farmer....you make me smile reading about your MANY animals. I thought that I had a lot and I only have 2 dogs and a rabbit. Have fun in Vegas!

    My farm consists of two cats and a dog. It's MUCH easier for MY babysitter, lol.

    Have a GREAT TIME in Vegas and play $5 on red 6 for me, ok?
