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.

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.

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.

I think I'm doing a bit better, but not out out the woods yet with my knee problem. I have started doing bootcamp again a couple of days ago, just being careful with my left knee, which makes me feel better knowing I can particapate again, don't like to be a quiter if possible.We had a very nice weekend, helped celebrate some friends birthdays by going out to dinner followed by birthday cake and ice cream at our house, which they were unaware of---so they were surprised. It is always nice when you can surprise someone.Today we had the Viking-Dallas game on and enjoyed the outcome, wishing the Vikings best of luck in New Orleans. Tonight I just did well, not much sat and relaxed ( could have ironed some clothes but hey theres always tomorrow). I have a eye appointment tomorrow, anxious to see if my eyes are failing any tests-haha, just part of aging. Actually my prescription hasn't changed in three years, so would be due for a slippage of eye sight. Well, gotta go finish the last set of windmills for quick challenge and think about heading for nightie night.

I injured my knee and leg on my left, so darn annoying for me. I barely walked both Sunday and Monday. Today was able to do bootcamp since it was for the upper body ( thank goodness), I'm not good at not being able to do some sort of workout. I also went to the gym and did upper body strengthening. I aldo started to do some walkibut only in the house, walking through all the rooms, but it's ok,better than nothing. Refuse to do to much walking out doors as the streets and some sidewalks still in bad ice codition. It will be interesting to see how I will feel Wednesday after activity today, as still having some pain , especially going up and down steps.
