beautiful day but it might rain later on today

Monday, April 20, 2009

I'm hoping that the chance of rain doesn't come today. They say there is a 50% chance of rain but there isn't a cloud in sight and the radar doesn't show any precip near here. So let's hope that there isn't any sudden down pours and I can go out and walk the pup. I need to walk outside and so does Lady. I need to be outside. It rained all day yesterday and I couldn't go out. Oh well.

Dad is doing great still. He has his usual rehab on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Plus he has his usual blood test to check his blood thinner on Thursday and chiropractor appointment on Tuesday and Friday to work on his lower back and neck (especially his neck since that was bothering him after he got out of the hospital).

I haven't taken anymore photos of my tomato plant yet. I took two yesterday and I will take more when it gets bigger. I need to take photos of my mom's tulips that are just outside of my bedroom window. There is at least 5 or 6 tulips in the bunch. More than there has been in the past few years. These tulips are a magenta color kind. I'm hoping that my mom's roses bloom this year.

  


a little rain won't hurt my chances in working out

Sunday, April 19, 2009

We're suppose to get a lot of rain today. But that isn't going to bother me. I'm going to work out in the house today. I'm going to do the Walk Away The Pounds 3 mile walk and the 30 Day Shred. Tried doing Level 3 of the 30 Day Shred yesterday morning but I couldn't do one of the strength training moves when your on your stomach. I just ate breakfast about 2 hours before that and I just couldn't handle it with food still in my stomach.

Yesterday we got one of those Topsy Turvy tomato planters to try out. Got it for $10.00 less than getting it through the mail. We got the soil and tomato plant (the tomatoes are called Best Boy) and it's all planted. I'm going to take photos of it throughout the season and will post them when I get them put onto the computer.

Dad is doing great in cardiac rehab. He's up to 9 minutes on the treadmills and bikes. This past week they put him on the ellipcal and rowing machine for 2 minutes each. But he does those once but the treadmills and bikes two times each. Instead of being their for an hour doing those exercises, he's there for an hour and 20 minutes. I'm not sure on what they're going to do this week. They may increase his times on everything. Doing all those exercises makes him tired but I think that it's a good tired because I believe that it's helping him with his sleep at night.

    It's amazing what exercise can do for our health, isn't it? Congrats on not letting the rain interfere with yours.

BTW, I've been curious about those upside down tomatoes, so I look forward to seeing your pictures.

a warm day to walk

Thursday, April 16, 2009

It has finally warm outside and I got to walk Lady at least 13 times between today and yesterday. She actually earned the 8 yesterday because it was her 1st birthday. And it got almost to 70 degrees today and tomorrow it's going to be the same thing. Yesterday it was almost 60 degrees. It's suppose to be nice on Saturday too but not on Sunday. We're expecting rain on Sunday.

I finally got to work with the 30 Day Shred Monday but that was it for the week. I am (almost off) on my TOM and I hate to be jumping around when I'm on it. I'm hoping to get to do it tomorrow if I'm lucky. It might be after dad and I get back from his cardiac rehab tomorrow afternoon and it's going to be warm in the house by then.

Happy Easter to all

Sunday, April 12, 2009

I hope that everyone is having a great Easter and a safe one. All I know that we're going to do today is going to church service this morning but I'm not sure on the rest of the day.

I got Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and that works. I was going to do it this morning but I'm too sore to do it. Especially just above the knee.

Many blessings coming your way for health and happiness and most of all for looking in the mirror and telling that person "You are loved."

I have heard that the 30 Day Shred is TOUGH.

    I love the shred, but yes, it hurts my knees too. The left one for some reason, it is weird 'cause my knees are usually fine. :)

    Happy Easter to you too! My mom passed away at the age of 54 and I know I always miss her most on the Holidays, so I will be thinking of you today and hoping you have a joyful day!
