Busy Day

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Took my 75 yr old mother in law shopping.We went to several stores. I did enjoy the day.Plus I walked for close to 3 hours.Then when I did get home had to park at the top of the hill.Carried down gallons of drinking water and hubby's 2 liters of diet cola, along with several bags of groceries. I think I made 4 or 5 trips up and down that hill. So, I do think I got quite a workout today. Only downside is I missed lunch.

Staying On Track

Sunday, July 20, 2014

I am usually a stress eater. I am really trying hard. So far so good. But I must say the last few months have not been kind. Yesterday morning I was on top of the world, weighed in and had lost 7.5 pounds for the week. Then in the afternoon you get one of those phone calls you just dread. Hubby's nephew had passed away that morning. He was 24, don't know why yet. His father, hubby's brother passed away in March from cancer. I lost a sister in May from a stroke. Enough already! I guess I just needed to vent a little. I hope all of you understand.

Power, Wonderful Power

Thursday, July 10, 2014

(Electric) I mean. Tues. around 4pm our lights went out. Storm had just blown thru the area. 75,000 people in the state of WV without power. i didn't have internet so i couldn't check sparkpeople. (Bummer) So I did get to clean out the refrigerator and upright freezer, give them a good scrub. Took all that stuff to the neighbor, who had room for it and a generator. Played card games with the hubby. Had candlelit dinners, (sandwiches). Got to read a book, I had been wanting to read. It was very relaxing. Power came back on today, Thurs. 4 pm. Nice to get back online and have AIR conditioning!!!!!!!!! Now I can log what I am eating.

A New Me

Monday, July 07, 2014

I have been on sparkpeople off and on for some time. The last time I tried really hard. I was just so tired all the time, it took every ounce of energy I had to do the basic of things. I really tried to push myself. But, sad to say it didn't help. Decided I better see a Dr. (hadn't seen one in years), what is the worst he could tell me, that I really am a couch potato. Well, he did the blood work and the reason I couldn't function, I have a vitamin B12 defiecency. One shot a week for 4 weels and then one shot a month for the rest of my life. I was shocked, I had never heard of this. I had always worried that I would become a diabetic and have to take insulin shots. Who knew. So now that I have the energy I really do need to get off the couch.
