Fun day

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Two of my friends came into the city today. The one that is my beautician gave me a cut(which I needed), then the three of us went out for lunch. Lunch was delicious, and of course I overdid a bit ( the dessert had my name on it). We talked and really had a good time, why does time fly by so quickly when your enjoying having a good time? Before we knew it , they had to get back to the burbs, as the beautician had some more clients yet today. So for my problem for the day---got my bootcamp in, did some home strengthening in (both good)But didn't end up with the amount of steps I wanted to do today, ended up doing about half. Guess tomorrow is another day to try to get closer to 10000,if not 10000---but I did have a good time , and sometimes there just isn't enough time, and glad it doesn't happen often.

    Woo-Hoo! Can't have enough time with the girlfriends. Those are important times. Good job on recognizing that you did well with getting in the bootcamp and some ST. Focus on getting those steps in today - you can do it!

New glasses

Monday, January 25, 2010

This morning I got a call saying my new glasses are ready to be picked up, wow that was quick as they told me it would be 7 to 10 working days before they would be ready.. So after my dental cleaning I drive on down to try them on and bring them home, everything seemed fine a the eye clinic, but now I'm having a tough time ajusting to the new things. For one thing I had my last pair for about 6 years, as my prescription never changed enough to get nrw lenses; and then the frames held up so well didn't see a need to just buy new ones. These frames are shaped differently then the other, lenses a bit smaller and my rectangular so guess it will take a bit to feel comfortable with the lenses. I've already taken them off for the night will try them again tomorrow---I better get use of them.

    Last time I got new glasses I still wore the old ones for an entire year before I could convince myself to give the new ones a try. It does take time to adjust.

Today my asthma has been acting up somewhat so taking a bit easier today. I did bootcamp today but not quickfire challenge. Did some walking but not near as much as I would have liked to. Talked to my doctor(primary) to get antibiotics to take Monday before my dentist appointment on Monday. I have a coarctation of the aorta( the difference between my identical twin)-so need meds before dentist appt.
Sure hope I will be able to go, as the weather could be nasty before Sunday again and through Monday, just wait to see . Time foe me to go read for awhile tonight, would like to finish the book I'm reading so I can start reading The Spark, hope the weekend will be great for everyone.

    I hope you get to feeling better before your dental appt. It's a bummer to see him/her when you don't feel good.
I too have to premedicate before having dental work, I have Mitral Valve Proplaps.
Good luck, hope thing go ok for you.

Pushing to motivate today

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

It seems to me that after a day of walking a lot I have trouble getting myself motivated.. I can't quite figure it out but I still finally got going, getting my mojo in gear. I think perhaps not falling asleep until after 4 am may have a lot to do with feeling unmotivated. Well, I finally got my Quick fire challenge down and bootcamp too and will be heading to the gym for some walking the track and strenght exercises shortly, even tho I would much rather stay home and get a nap, but that might mess up sleeping tonight, so will tough it out.


Productive day in several aspects

Monday, January 18, 2010

Today I had a eye doctor appointment and lucky for me DH was home so went along with me; that ended up being a very good thing. I forgot tp bring my sunglasses today so got a pair of those cheap throwaways for the clinic. Now mind you I have used them before, but today the darn things would not stay in place over my glasses or without regular glasses on ( don't know why as my head is ths same size it's always been and have used them over the glasses before(last year). Then we had to go to another clinic to get my new frames and lenses as our medical coverage has changed and they pay a large chunk if you go to this one medical clinic to get glasses. So after those appointments DH and I went to the Mall of America and walked two and a half levels of the mall, so I got over 11500steps in today woo-hoo for me. We also had supper at the mall, and oh yeh my DH bought me a new wedding band and diamond, said it was about time as we have been married for almost 43 years. He decided he would get me them now as he is retiring soon and then probabely woundn't have the extra money to do that on retirement. So I guess I made out real good today, plenty of exercice , new glasses and new rings that have to be sized so will have to wait to get them. I still got my bootcamp and quick challenge done today too.
