Tired And A Little Sad Today

Saturday, June 30, 2012

This morning hubby and I got up at 4:45a.m. and took my daughter to the airport. We had such a wonderful time together while she was visiting and we are very close. I cried when she disappeared into the airport. I miss her already and we just got home from dropping her off. Even hubby noticed that the house was very quiet when we got home. So today I'm feeling tired and a little sad. The good thing is that I don't feel like eating at all. If I wasn't so tired, I would go to the Y and do the Saturday, deep water aerobics class. Oh well, tomorrow is another day. I think I'll go take a nap now - lack of sleep lowers my ability to cope and make good decisions and I want to be at the top of my game.

    A big hug to you. I am sorry. My youngest lives in Minneapolis..close to 2000 miles away. If we are lucky we see him once a year. neither of us can afford air fare..its hard. I know the empty, too. Just think, though..you are one day closer to the next visit!!
big hugs, and i'm sorry

I'm Happy But Exhausted

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

I'm happy but exhausted today. My daughter and I started our day by going to 1.5 water aerobics classes. Then, we decided to sit in the therapy pool for a few minutes. Ahhhh! It sure felt good!

After we showered and dressed, we decided to drive to Orlando to go shopping at a premium outlet mall. It was a long drive but since we were chatting, the time went by quickly. We found bargains galore and lost all track of time. The only time we stopped was to eat a healthy lunch. The next thing we knew, it was 5:00p.m. We had been shopping for well over 4 hours! Both of us were so tired the we could barely walk back to the car.

The drive back to our house took forever since it was rush hour. We decided to make the most of it by popping a CD into the CD player. We sang at the top of our lungs for most of the trip home. We stopped at the grocery store to pick up some bag lettuce, Vitamin Water Zero, a sugar free surprise or two for hubby, a newspaper and a few other items. Our next stop was the pharmacy to pick up a prescription - which the doctor never called and ordered. :( At long last we arrived home. Thank goodness for leftovers because I was too tired to cook anything!

It was a great day filled with laughter and wonderful memories. I'm glad that we went, even though it took us about 1 hour and 30 minutes to get there. We got lots of exercise too. I'm sure we will both sleep well tonight.

    What a fun day for you and your daughter - great memories.

Yesterday I took the teens shopping for about 2 hours, bowling for about 2 hours and finally to a movie after supper - keeping up is keeping me active!

Working Out Between The Raindrops!

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

It's another rainy day here in Florida. Workouts had to be scheduled either indoors or during those brief lulls when the dark, rain clouds temporarily moved out of our area. I managed to squeeze in around 80 minutes of water exercise at the indoor Y pool. Later, despite some random drops, my daughter and I took the dogs for a walk. One good thing about the rainy weather was that the temperatures have dropped and there is a nice breeze. The breeze kept the atmosphere quite nice for brief bouts of outdoor activity! You could say that we spent our day working out between the raindrops!

Continued Exercise Modification

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

I did 120 minutes in the water today using my exercise modification plan. My instructor asked about my back and seemed surprised when I told her that I had spent 3 days with hot packs and PT exercises. She asked me to please be careful and I noticed that she periodically watched me throughout the exercise class. My plan for today was to skip the bouncing exercises altogether and stop for periodic stretching - specifically on my thigh muscles/hip flexors. It worked and again I felt no pain. I also forced myself to take a short nap when I got home. I did this for the express purpose of allowing my muscles to relax and rest. I felt relaxed and refreshed when I woke up.

    Good going, Cyndi! Glad you told the instructor about your experience. She may be more careful, especially with you, in the future. Sounds like you have done an absolutely awesome job of rehabing this injury. You have learned so much and have incredible good sense!!
