Now I wish that I went for that walk with friend but it is too late now. Friend is probably in bed right now and it's almost 10pm.
The T.O.M is about over and now I have to deal with the bloat and belly aches. Why me? Why now? I'm feeling it and if I went for that walk, I would be having to stop at different places that had a bathroom. My body hates when I do a lot of walking because it thinks that it has to get heavy. And I hate it. I'm going to be glad when T.O.M is 100% over with.
Got to text back and forth with my youngest niece who is pregnant. That made my day. Her and her sister and two brothers are like my kids even though they're my nieces and nephews. Melinda will be 20 years old this coming July, Heather (the one that is pregnant) just turned 17 years old back in October, Nick just turned 15 years old back in March, and Matt will be 13 years old this coming June. Melinda, Heather, and Nick were born when I was still in school. Matt wasn't even thought of then. Melinda was born after my 7th grade year, Heather was born when I was a sophomore in high school, and Nick was born a little over 2 months before my high school graduation. All 4 kids are homeschooled and Melinda graduates from a community college up there in Minnesota on May 11th. That's 3 days before Heather's due date with the baby.
I am hoping that I get to go a little longer ride on my bike on the next trip. I will try to go at least to the end of the street or further hopefully tomorrow if the weather is decent.
Well, I had to throw away my favorite toning sandals today. Why? because one of the straps around the heel broke beyond repair. While my dad and I were at Target, got a pair of flip flops in black (size 10/11) to wear until I got home to put on my tennis shoes. The toning sandals lasted me about 2 years. I am so close in seeing if I can find another pair. Loved this pair too much in not to get another pair. I wore them everyday when it was warm outside. I hate wearing tennis shoes and socks when it was warm.

Well, t's a 2 holiday day today. Palm Sunday and April Fool's Day. One's a religious holiday and one's a joking day. I think that's a rare occasion.
I believe that my youngest niece went into the hospital again last night sure why. I haven't heard from her mom yet if there is anything wrong with my youngest niece or the baby. I'm hoping that both mom and baby are fine.
I can't believe that both my dog and cat are behaving so well. They're laying side by side (almost) on the floor sleeping. This happens once or twice a day with the two of them. The dog will be 4 years old in 2 weeks and 2 weeks after that the cat will be a year old.
Looks like it's going to be a beautiful day. If dad was going to be in bed still (he's up), I would be waling to church. It's been a few weeks since I walked to church. I might even walk the dog later on today. It's suppose to be near 90 degrees today.
My computer is acting up again. It was doing this last month too. Just wish that it would act normal. I'm glad that there is time to get this to work before we go to church.
Got to see my aunt who was in the hospital with shingles and bladder infection today at her son's house. She was weak and tired. They had to get oxygen for her today because her O2 level was low. I think that it was around 80%. She was having a hard time breathing last night and the night before and she doesn't have an appetite.
I dind't do any walking today. Too hot to go anywhere. It got to either 88 or 89 degrees today.
My youngest niece is fine. She was having contractions but they got them stopped. She's home resting right now. I hope.
Almos thought that a friend was pregnant according to her Facebook status. Come to find out that she was pulling everyone's leg.
I told my friend that I was suppose to be walking with tomorrow evening that I can't go with the way my aunt was feeling. She understood. I just didn't want to be too far away from home just in case we had to rush to the hospital.
My T.O.M has pretty much stopped. I'm glad because I was getting sick and tired of the cramps, bloat, and being tired. Plus I'm not peeing a lot.
Someone asked me if I had the Walk Away The Pounds DVDs. I do. Miles 1 through 3 and 2 of the 5 milke DVDs. Plus I have a few others bu there is a lot to list. But I'm just trying to get some other ideas besides what I listed yesterday.
No matter how many calories I eat, how much water I drink, or how much walking I do, I'm not breaking my plateau. And I'm sick and tired of not breaking my plateau. Let's hope that I do break it this month. I REALLY want to be a lot lower before my grandniece gets here next month.

I'm trying to think of some exercises to do to break my plateau of weighing 207 pounds. I guess my body is bored with the exercises that I've been doing and that's why I've plateaued. I will be walking with my friend that I was going to get a hold of via Facebook and she will be walking wih me. Monday evening will be the first time.
My youngest niece is doing better. To keep the swelling down due to the pregnancy, she swims. She also has a job working for Papa John's. I found out about these 2 things yesterday when I was texting her mom. But all and all, she's doing fine.
It's a cold morning so I'm not going to take the dog for walks. If we're not busy later and it's warmer, I will then. But not now. It's 51 degrees outside.
I had a somewhat of a great lunch and an excellent supper. But after I ate both meals, I felt like I ate too much.
Today would of ben a great day if my TOM wasn't causing me to day near the bathroom. Plus my cramps were hurting. No amount of walking could of helped. I think that I need to cut back on the caffine in the afternoon because my flow is heavy then.
Found a bike helmet today but can't afford it. It is at Target and they want $22.29 for it and it matches my bike perfectly. It has flowers on it but you have to see them in the right light. I got a photo of it.
I still haven't sold my swimsuit yet. If I do get another one, it'll be in the size I'm wearing not a size bigger like I've heard. I still have my old one from when I was either in junior high or high school but I'm not sure if it'll fit. I will see after I'm over TOM before I try it on. I will take a phot o of me in it and hopefully (if I look okay in it) post it.
My dad is doing something that he's been needing. Shave his whiskers and trim his beard and mustache. He was starting to look like Grizzly Adams.
I forgot to ask. Does anyone have any exercises that I could do besides workout DVDs, treadmills, bikes (stationary and regular bikes), walking, exercise ball, or joining a gym (we go to a local hospital to do the same thing)? I'm running out of ideas. Can't run yet since I'm not fit enough for it yet and plus my asthma. I just need to add one or two things to my exercising to break this stupid plateau.
I can't believ ethat tomorrow is the start of a whole new month. It seems like only yesterday we started 2012. I hope that the rest of the year doesn't go fast. Before you know it, my grandniece will be born in May, county fair in Minnesota will be here in July, and anything else that may happen.
