What do you do when you're feeling sick...in regards to exercise, etc.?

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

I woke up at 7am (normally I'm in bed til 830 because I'm up late) and I was freezing. Now, mind you, I have 2 quilts on me (one a summer one) and one of those "fuzzy" type blankets, plus the sheet, and I was still unable to get warm. I had a headache that won't stop, still do, and my stomach hurts a little. My blood sugar is 120, which is good, but I feel like heck.

I'm not sure I feel up to exercising, and I need to eat, but wow...my stomach just don't feel like it. I could have the usual jello, etc, but I just feel so wore out right now, I hate to miss my exercising for today, so maybe I'll wait until later to see how I feel then.

It's raining, but supposed to be 66 for a high today...or tomorrow, I forget, but it's supposed to get nice...only rain downfall.

I hope you all have a beautiful day, and smile, no matter how you feel. emoticon

    Don't beat yourself up for missing a day of exercise. It happens and if you keep pushing yourself when your body isn't feeling well, it might just take longer to heal.
Take your vitamin C and call it a night. emoticon emoticon

    Sorry to hear you're feeling sick - maybe you are coming down with something? I hope not. When I don't feel well I simply don't exercise. That's probably really bad advice but whenever I exercise when I'm feeling really awful I seem to do more bad than good but I'm very interested to hear what others have to say about this. I am probably doing it wrong lol.

I'm also sick, my meds are kicking my butt. Are you on any meds for your type 1 diabetes? I wonder if you have experience with metformin. I didn't make it to work yesterday and I literally didn't get out of bed for 24 hours straight unless I was making a run for the bathroom. No exercise for this lady!

Hope you feel better dear!

"cut"ting through exercise!

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Ok, since when do you put on your shoe, walk halfway out to the mailbox and then discover you have something in your shoe that cuts your foot enough that it bleeds all other the place? I'd wore these shoes last night and the day before all day and not had a problem then today I put them on and OW!

When I pulled it out, I was too concerned with all the blood that I didn't pay much attention to what it was, but I believe I know because Sunday afternoon, late, I dropped a bottle outside in the garage and it went all over the place. I have a feeling this piece of glass (that's what it felt like when I pulled it out) was down in the bottom/side area of my shoe and worked it's way out this morning when I was walking. It figures, I'm supposed to be going to the Midwest Horse Fair Saturday, a movie Friday, grocery shopping Thursday, I'm hoping it heals well so I can do all those without any pain. Right now it's not too bad, I put my foot in water to clean it out and checked it in a mirror (it's on the bottom/outer side left foot. Thank goodness it wasn't on the heel, that would have been far worse.

So I'm not going to do my walking exercise today, I'll replace it with the other one I'd been doing before I started the walking exercise, only because when doing the walking one, it's more than just walking, there are side steps, leg lifts, kicks (not sure about putting a lot of pressure on it , I don't want it to start bleeding again, it's not the pain, that I could tolerate, I'm sure.

Well enough about my foot, being Diabetic I do worry about them and after this many years of having Type 1 I don't want something to go wrong..do I worry too much? Nope! :D

The Playground meeting went pretty good last night, it was the general concensus that we stay together, even though the one guy did put out a lot of names of people who "couldn't do it anymore" (one of them even said "you're saying I'm old?" because he did, and then she argued against what he was saying :D) We pointed out how there are new members coming on board, then I think what really hit him hard, was when my Mom asked the City Parks Director if the playground would be taken care of like it is now, if we disbanded and he said he didn't believe it would be. There's the ace card.

We did tell him that if a person wishes to leave we wouldn't hold anything against them, that we understood, but he never gave up his membership. I'm kind of wondering if it's because he came to the second meeting we had and he just don't want to "drop out" because he wants to be with it for the long run, but that's up to him.

The Parks person has to leave because he got a higher-up job as head of the Parks Dept, and that's wonderful, he deserves it, but he's going to have someone else come on board, so that's great.

I'd better get my exercises done, normally I'm done before now, but I wanted my foot to have that extra bit of "rest" before I do it.

Have a GREAT DAY, everyone and don't forget that SMILE! emoticon


ADDENDUM: I finished 43 minutes of workout including a new "walking" video, and it didn't seem to bother my foot at all, so I'll be GREAT! Have a good one, I'm going to!

    Well it seems like things are starting to work itself out as someone has a replacement by the sounds of it. See no point in worrying to much as things always have a way of working themselves out. emoticon

Your foot sounds painful. Hopeful it will heal fast. Let the air at it as much as possible.

Way to go in getting your exercise in!!!! emoticon emoticon

Frustration!

Monday, April 15, 2013

You know, sometimes I wonder why a person has to try to break apart an organization just because they wish to leave. We have one member who's been calling and calling the Parks Director (also on our board) and talking to them about our organization disbanding. In my thoughts I feel that if they want to leave, go, we're not keeping them there, but don't go around trying to talk the other board members into leaving.

Because of him a 3rd member is now talking about leaving and is actually planning on it. This organization stays together to help with the upkeep of the playground, it also helps others build similar playgrounds and believe it or not, there are some of us who want to remain with the organization. The fundraiser done every year to help upkeep the playground, the reason I know he is responsible for at least one member leaving is because this member said the same exact thing to me that this other person did, almost word for word.

We meet only twice a year, period, we have no fundraisers but the one the SCWHOG does for us, other than that, we don't ask anything of our members but to help get items for the silent auction. I'm sorry, it just doesn't make sense to me and kind of upsets me. (step away from the food!)

If someone wants to leave, go, but don't try to drag others with you. That's my rant for the day. emoticon

    I agree too. There is nothing you can do about it. These people that leave just might come back. You never know. The important thing is you let it all out in your rant and are not running to food. Food will not change anything. Who knows maybe new people might get involved. In life things change and for the better even though at first it doesn't seem that way.

Bluebird Visiting

Sunday, April 14, 2013

I saw my first Bluebird of the year, and I truly think it was sent by God and my Dad to remind me that he's doing fine and I'm not alone. I couldn't believe it, snow had covered the ground, even the chisel-plowed fields this morning, and then I see the Bluebird...what a beautiful site.

I got in my exercises and everything, and am still smiling, all I can say is "Thank you, Dad" for the reminder that life does go on.

The quilt dedication was beautiful, they showed each square of the quilt and said the person's name who it was there for. Dad's turned out beautiful, I got a few pictures I'll post here. I'm so glad I went, even though it did bring tears, we weren't alone, there were many other families there too.

WEll I hope you have a great day.

    The quilt is beautiful, what a lovely tribute. I am a bird fanatic and I know the joys of seeing the first bluebird of the season, especially one so special that it could have been sent here specifically for you from your dad. I bet he was smiling down on you when it first caught your eye. Hope your day is phenomenal, you deserve it!

    What a beautiful quilt! Glad you were able to share it with us.

It is great seeing the bluebirds and robins. Spring is here! We have no snow now and the sun is out and feels great! Glad you got your exercise in and keep it up!

Iiiis iiiit Sssspring......rrrreally?

Friday, April 12, 2013

*laughing* that was a shivering title, could you tell? It's gotten cold again, well not like winter, but still, when it's supposed to be in the 60's and you get 30's...that's not spring, that's just cold! and snow predicted tonight? YIKES! I wish it'd just be sunny for once. Thank you, Eleni for all the sunshine, we needed it...but it didn't dry up the ground too much. :D

I went out and fed my daughters ponies today (she was working on the stable at her BF's place). I wonder if that's exercise..sure felt like it.

Anyway, today I tried to do the second part of Walk This Way, actually turned out to be a 2 mile walk, and it wasn't to bad at all. I ended up with something like 52 or so minutes of exercise this morning, maybe if I can add the work feeding the ponies it'd be an hour. :D Well I can try anyway.

We're still working on getting donations for the Silent Auction and it's going slow, kind of makes me regret moving our organizations meetings to April because it gives us less than a month to get the word out and get going. Thank goodness for those on FB who have donated, the bigger businesses (Wisconsin Dells area) haven't responded at all, and we'd been hoping for at least one thing from one of the places up there. Oh well, go for those who want to help kids with special needs, right?

So tomorrow I have the hospice dedication, Monday I have our CAMDEN Meeting, one day free in between. We have 3 weddings this year, 2 graduations (3 of those in June alone, another in September, and the 3rd wedding in October, on my Birthday..not sure how I'm going to keep track of everything then, I don't have a laptop I can take with me and it's in NC!! I'm not looking forward to that, plus the other two weddings are far away (Green Bay and Stevens Point). The only thing I'll be able to do my regular stuff in (eating/keeping track/etc) are the graduations because they're in Madison.

I'm really not looking forward to missing so much, and YIKES my goals will be down because I'll have missed so much...NOOOOOOooooooOOOOOOOOO. :D Oh well, life goes on I guess.

I hope you all have a nice day and things look sunny for you...even if the sky isn't!
