Today is a great day.....

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Today has been a great day! The sky was a clear blue, the temperature was mid 70's and the sun was shining. I went to the osteoporosis doctor today. (I don't have it yet but we're taking preventative measures) The nurse was impressed with what I told her about Spark People. She wrote down the web address and said she'd like to see what SP is all about. She was also impressed with the way I've been eating. We looked at the intake of vitamins and minerals in my diet. I track everyday so I could tell her exactly what I've been eating. She thought that I have a very healthy diet! For some reason I felt really proud of myself. I've been keeping track of my vitamin/mineral intake as well as sodium, fats, protein and carbs. I'm hoping to be approved for IV Boniva instead of taking pills which are hard on my stomach. I'll keep my fingers crossed!!!

On my way home, I stopped by Beall's and got some pool shoes that were on sale. I can't wait to get back into the water!!! Just getting out and doing errands today was wonderful. I'll take it easy again tomorrow and work on my journal and rest my foot. On Thursday I have another doctor's appointment so I get to go out again. YES!!! It sure helps my mood and sense of independence!
It was definitely a great day. emoticon

    I absolutely think the nutritional tracker is one of Sparkpeoples greatest tools. You have a great deal to be proud of. You are on a healthy journey and it sounds like you're going to be bringing some guests. WooHoo for spreading the Spark! Your positive strides are an example of how beneficial Spark can be. Congratulations!

Out and About

Sunday, February 08, 2009

Doing my chores yesterday left me free to go and photograph things for my husband and help him take inventory at his warehouse today. First I'm going to make us a healthy breakfast. Second, I'll pack several healthy snacks and some water to take with us. I won't forget to take my camera bag and some extra batteries. I'll also bring a book to read just in case I finish early with my part. This will keep me from getting bored and eating mindlessly. Maybe I can also take a walk around the parking lot before hubby is finished with his part. It should be a very creative day for me with setting up the shots etc. and I should be able to get in a little exercise too.

Today I'm going to bite the bullet and do some long overdue chores. Hubby's at work and the dogs are napping a bit. I'll just catch up on a few things - doing so helps me feel more in control of my life. I'm feeling good today too. I'll do my weight routine once my chores are out of the way. That should warm me up a bit. It's still fairly cool today for Florida. Maybe we'll get some much needed rain. My flowers could use it.

Sounds like a good day to me....enjoy it all.

TGIF -It's a Great day!

Friday, February 06, 2009

Here it is, Friday already! Where has the week gone? Spark People has really helped me to constructively fill my days since I hurt my foot. emoticon! Hubby is going to take me to Wal Mart again so I can get out of the house and walk around. I can really use the exercise. How many times can I vacuum the house in order to move around? Crutch vacuuming is going to become a new Olympic event! Crutch walking in circles in the living room just doesn't cut it! Only 16 days to go until the doctor x-rays my foot and tells me when I can get out of this boot! But who's counting? lol

Have a great weekend everyone! We can do this!!! YES WE CAN!!!! emoticon

I am blessed

Thursday, February 05, 2009

As I sit here reading the comments on my blogs and Spark Page as well as my emails, it hits me that I am really truly blessed. The people I have met here have touched me, supported me and given me that little extra push that has kept me going. It is humbling to think about how I have been loved and supported through all of my trials and tribulations of the last 3 months. God works in very interesting ways and makes himself known to us through a multitude of avenues. I feel his presence and grace most of the time but especially when others reach out to me. I am thankful for all of you who have touched my life.
