Midwest Horse Show

Sunday, April 21, 2013

emoticon Yep, it's that weekend, my daughter, our friend, our friend's daughter always go up to MHS in Madison and spend the entire day there. I still need to put in my exercises I did, but that was mainly all the walking, non-stop all day long.

It was a nice day, not hot, not really cold, that breeze was chilly, but it stopped in the afternoon and it was beautiful out.

I hope everyone had a great weekend, and a beautiful Sunday tomorrow.

Great Day for America..

Friday, April 19, 2013

And for me, I started going out to ask for donations for the Silent Auction for the playground and each I spoke to said yes and were very positive. I spoke to a lady at one of the travel agencies and she was surprised to see me, because a friend of hers, and she were talking about the playground yesterday and wondered how long it'd been around. When I told her 20 years, she just gasped, I said "I know how you feel" and we just started talking about the playground and how it's spread world-wide.

I love talking to people, sometimes you find out the most incredible stuff. I'm so glad I stopped in there, I'm not really sure why I did, but I figured it couldn't hurt!

Even though it was snowing most of the day, it was still sunshiney in my heart...is that a word? If not it should be. :)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I'm going to the Midwest Horse Fair tomorrow, so I'll be gone, but I'll be getting tons of exercise with walking from our car to the buildings and then around all day. Have a great one!

And for those who were lost in Boston, and MIT....a flower for you..may you rest in peace knowing that so many in this USA will remember you, that you'll not be forgotten. And to those who were injured, you're in my prayers. emoticon

A big thanks for all the support..

Friday, April 19, 2013

I ended up exercising later in the day, I still wasn't feeling the best, but I had to do it, just...I don't know, I just felt a little better and actually finished 2 out of 3, I got about 25 mins done, so figured that was good enough. I did sleep really well that night and woke up without anything wrong, so much. Got my exercises done yesterday (Thursday) and plan on doing them later on today. At least I wasn't chilled and didn't feel rotten like Wednesday.

To come and read the encouragement really made me feel good and not guilty, thank you all.

This weekend may daughter and I will be making our way up to Madison for the Midwest Horse Fair, we've gone every year for the past 8 years or so along with some friends of ours. My husband, son, brother=in-law, daughters BF, and other friends go up to my mom's trailer on the Mississippi fishing, but the way the weather looks, don't think that'll happen. I just hope it's nice Saturday, it's supposed to be, but still..I don't trust the weather. My Husband taught me how to start up the generator if the electricity goes off, and we're babysitting our daughter's friends cat for the week, while she's in Hawaii.

Anyway, I'd better get to bed, have a wonderful upcoming day, seems like friday today, I'll talk to you all later! emoticon

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
