Thanks for the shoes. Don't beat yourself up, I am not on track with the walking plan, but I plan to , because we can do this!!!!! It's just walking for God's sake!!! Let's get on it!!!
Went for my mammogram today. It was all good. YAY.
I also ate a sub in the car and stopped at the fancy bakery for pumpkin gingerbread.....another day of bad choices. I tell myself in my head, "you got your mammogram, treat yourself, you baked a cake and mailed it to Tennessee without so much as touching it, get some gingerbread at Prairie Thunder, they only make it this time of year.......lalalalala...."
I am doing the virtual 5K, walking version. there is a link to the group on my page if you want to check it out. The deal is one works up to walking a 5k 5 weeks from now. I am sure I can do it! It is with the Spark Teams on my page. 5 weeks is a good time frame I think. Doable.
It must be the day for dealing with reality, at least as far as our health is concerned. I got an email from the drug store telling me they won't do my automatic Rx for my blood pressure med....that means it's time to see the cardiologist for an exam. When they call him for permission to renew I will get a call from his office to schedule an appointment .... time to face the music. I need to look in my agenda book and see how many appointments I have canceled, I have really been in avoidance mode. I used the too busy to go excuse! I was busy, but I really didn't want to get on his scale or do the treadmill test! He is a strict skinny German man and he gives me the evil eye!
As you might be able to tell my husband has been in Boston all week. I am home alone....there needs to be a movie about a 50+ woman home alone that channels the movie about the boy! Anyway....I am always on the computer a lot more when I am HOME ALONE!
I am doing a lot more random babbling than usual and watching a lot more TV too...WOW Taylor Swift has a good publicist! She has been on every show in the last 3 days, that new song is burned into my brain.
When I logged in just now I got 100 points....in honor of Rosie O'Donnell surviving her heart attack and us not having one EVER ( I watched Dr. Oz just now, lol ) I am going to give you a fun Goodie and that will hopefully help us get back on track and make it through Halloween.
I typed a long spark mail to you last night and "lost" it due to computer operator error! Gabrielle got new fancy lap top for school so I took over her old one and I am getting used to it. I let the battery get too low....It is a good thing right now because the pc is upstairs and it is much hotter up there, we have 2 large ac units but when it gets this hot the upstairs just can't keep up. at least with my "new" lap top I can sit at the kitchen island where it is relatively cool.
Seattle was fantastic. Too much to do , must go back! I love the geography of the place. More hills in the city than I expected, my leg muscles and knees are still sore. Even with really really good public transport it is a lot of walking to get to everything one wants to see! Would be a good place to live and stay healthy. Can't walk in the daytime here right now, it is simply too hot. We got a family Y membership Sunday so I have no excuse though....
