Monday day 4 going to be good day

Monday, September 27, 2010

I am being optimistic because it is the only way to be. First off we got a phone call last eve.
My neice age30 was admitted to the hospital yesterday with fainting, dizziness, and blackouts where she felt blind. The diagnosis is wollf parkinson smilth syndrome. It is a heart condition where it beats too much or too irregular I am not sure read about it but wasn't really comprehending the site I was on. Anyway they have told her that they are not sure which area is affected and she could just die, or it can be treated. hmmm. Scarey stuff for anyone but more so for a 30 year old, whos father passed suddenly of a heart attack 6months ago. Also her dads side has many heart attack people and apparently 4 cousins died of this many years ago. So prayers please if yu are the praying kind KIm will appreciate itall. I am so glad she made it to dd wedding as we hadn't seen her in ages.

2nd and important to me, but not as much as Kim's health is I called ei. They have no clue why they are a week late, and started with did you see an agent etc. I said yes told them al the dates, boils down to they are a week late and have till close of biz wed to recitify. Call back Thurs if noone has called you. Olay and I am wondering what power I have on Thurs to fix this but okay. I hipe it gets fixed I need to know.

So today, woke at 8 am!!! dh fell asleep downstairs around 2 came to bed at 3:40!!!! I woke and he said I am not tired, within 3 mins he was snoring and I was wide awake so at 5 after dozing and all I went in the other bedroom and slept well. Got up and took dog around track and now I have to decide what I am going to do as a walk, Really want to go to the beach or trail and it is awesome out so even if dh won't go today will be the day. I wil be fine in broad daylight. Today is monday 500 steps day too. I will for sure be doing that.

Food has been good, I am down to 191.8 so that is new for me, as Aug showed me at 192.6. The pants and top I have on this am to exercise make me feel good so I feel thinner and that is always a bonus to continue on.
Must go get breakfast as my belly is actually growling lol
Hope you all have a super choice day and I will be baack later to update.

Back and glad to say I went to the salt marsh trail and did a 4.5 km ( about 2 3/4 mi) in one hour. Not bad it is gravel except towards end it is stone a tad harder to walk on. My operated knee did okay till about little better than 3/4 of way back and my "good" knee well the bck of it has been tight all day and stayed tight but I was determined I was walking that trail today.
Now will do my steps if need be will do 250 and break then 250. Also must get my dusting done and tidy batrhoom and wash kitchen floor ( maybe).

It is 10 pm and have to say that I was only able to do 300 steps as the back of my knee was sore. I find it is still sore now and have iced it ect. but just went odwn to let the dog in and coming up it made a strange feeling and sound. this is th eone not operated on ad it isnt the front at all. so did a great walk, 300 steps and a lot of stretching. so still pleased. Had our company and I made pb cookies that dh can eat with no wheat and cornmeal muffins with flour and others with rice flour. I had my cup of tea and those cookies didnt intice me at all. PB cookies are not my fav and i knew I only had 96 calories left and I wanted my yogurt. So again ya for me! now off to bed. cya

    I believe you are referring to Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome. It's good they figured out what is going on with her.

Sorry to hear about your knee. I hope that it doesn't cause a lot of problems for you.

    My thoughts and prayers are going out to you and your family, especially your niece. Sounds like you have a strong family who will unite as a support system for her. That is a blessing as there are many who don't have that.

I can relate to the sleeping thing. My DH wakes me up all the time (he works nights) then starts snoring.... it is so hard to get back to sleep with the eruption of noise happening next to me. (for some reason it does not wake me if I am already asleep.)

emoticon I admire the fact that you managed to pull yourself out of bed and have plans to continue taking care of you! That is the most important thing! WTG!!!

Good luck with your program today.

Day 3 renewal

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Had a great chat with a sp friend this am, and hopeflully again this eve. We discuss strategy lol . hold each other accountable even though I live in Nova Scotia Canada and she lives in Maine USA. we have become very close. I will be glad to some day meet her in person, she is a great person I just know.
Well today we didn't get out for our beach or trail walk, cos dad showed up, then ds came over. Havent seen ds in while as he is so busy working all the time. So later this aft. I took dog for walk. That is not enough execise so will go for another walk alone after supper before dark.
Have drank one of my bottles of water, so 22 oz but need more hae to play catch up wiht yesterday. I will get more down me for sure.
My walking friend is back from her vacation. So good to see her today and chat. but I ran out when she was allmost done. Tomorrow if i wake early enough, she has to be out there by 6:30 cos she is watching her grandson later. Will see if not think I will get my 4 in for sure.
So on track, calorie wise, better with water, and okay with exercise but will get more done. Need a bit of a boost in the financial mode but it too will come it has to.
Best go and finish making supper.

    Glad to hear that each day is a little better. Walking is such a good way to lift the spirits, particularly when you get to do it with a friend.

I WILL and I CAN do this....

Late for me to be posting another blog but have to say, I have been on here reading a blog from a 505 lb man who is I presume down to 230 ( could be lower I am reading from the beginning 2008)

PIXIEMOM13 thanks so very much for this link. I have started at the beginning of his journey and am now at Jan 1 2009 and wow is all I can say.He has motivated me to start putting day numbers on my blog again.

So today was a good day, as I said went to the job fair, then we went to Costco and got dh meds. and we bought nothing! Anyone with a costco membership knows how rare it is to go to Costco and come out with nothing! We did go get groceries after, then got home and had supper, did dishes and had a good evening. I walked the dog and she actually ran around a bit. So we both had a good walk.
Betting and hoping that dh will join us. I asked him this eve and he you got me when I was watching a show and trying to put a program on puter.... but he didn't say no which is what he usually says. But he called him mum on a whim yesterday and she had just got home from the hospital again (few times now) cos her BP goes high, He said mum are you exercising... even a short slow walk. I thought hmm you are a great one to lecture - you sit from min you get up till you go tobed unless we have somewhere to go. he has his mum, his bro and one sister all with high BP. he was on chol. meds and bp but was for his depression they just happen to help that too. so maybe he thought about it cos said will ask you tomorrow and he didnt say no.
Anyway late and want to read for while. Have a good story on the go. Best get ready for bed.
Night all!!!

    It is good to read the daily blog of someone who has been successful, because even successful people have down days and times when their weight doesn't drop the way they want it. Sounds like a really interesting blog.

LOL HAHAH What a weekend!!! Letting you know this will be long, but you can sigh, OMG laugh and all in one blog! LOL
Friday at noon, dh, dog and I set off to go camping. We were going to meet a person I had "met" on another losing wt site a few years ago. Also the campground we were staying in was run by a girl on that site and her sister was coming to camp also. so great weekend planned.
Off we went leaving the house at noon, trailer in tow. 32 feet long 8 ft wide. driving along we know the way to this campground but the GPS says go a diff way, so hubby said hey why not some scenic site we haven't seen. sure. well it took us downt his road that started out paved, went a tad narrower then no where to turn around a 32 ft trailer so we kept on going, gravel to grass to very very narrow. long story short - it was too narrow but we had no choice. so when we got to where it widened again, hubby started moving more than a crawl and I said STOP someething is hanging. well a tree branch had gotten between the awning rails and the trailer and tore off our electic awning and bent the rails. Hubby had to get out and put two lawn chairs on top of each other and stand on tip toes to unscrew them and get it off so we could continue driving. got to the end of the road and I recognized where we were, farther back than when we got of the highway! and a mess. okay we are upset as we have only used the trailer 3x it is brand new. so calming downa nd have to say hubby did very well.
on we go, get to the campground meet trish, get to the campsite back in have a problem as hubby is still argh. co camper helps thanks! LOL
we get settled then we spend a night listening to horeendous thunder lightening and rain. OMG the rain. but thankfully our roof is fine! whew.
Sat is nice hot and bright,we stay in trailer during the hottest tine as we have no awning to shield the sun lol our other friends from Ontario that we had yet to meet arrive. a great couple. so we visit and get to know each other. the other sister arrives and we all sit and chat. her hubby's band is playing there this weekend so we all go listen. great night.
then sat hubby is putting the man door on the hook so we can just use the screen door and smap it comes off in his hand. they are now made of plastic instead of metal. argh again. so we now have no way to have just the screen door open, no awing. later i make a good supper for him and decide i will make a salad and meat for me. so great, we go out and we have had the AC on in the trailer, so it is dripping on teh side as we havnt got the awning to catch it. we decide to sit on the picnic table. well he sat and then i went to sit and he went to stand and the entire table afell over. I fell on the ground with my supper all over the ground, my cooler which iw as so wanting to enjoy, fell all over me - sticky!!! but no calories LOL we wer so stunned and laughing so hard. but man what else.....
anyway i made eggs and ham and toast for supper, then we went and had a great fire with our friends.
arrived home safe and sound today! Whew. busy weekedn we just call it our mishap weekend. but at least the trailer is still usable, the insurance will pay, and dh did pretty good with it all.
i cant imagine what i have gained but right now I am saying its okay. this is life and this weekend was a blast and this week super busy with dd wedding ect. when I feel I can , I will watch what I eat and take care, I will still walk, and this weekend i walked this huge campground a nd also we walked dog a lot. so will do some but not beat myself up for gaining and not doing totally a fit into life plan. I just dont think I can figure it all out right now. tomorrow dr apt, then ei hopefully and then we leave for dd wedding. she is home today on the floor cos her back is so bad. fool wont go to dr.
anyway heres to a busy week, will try to get on, we had no service this weekend not sure what the other campground will have.
HUGS to all. enjoy my weekend with me! lol

Thunderin Thursday,

Thursday, July 29, 2010

Woke in the night to pouring rain, was able to get back to sleep till about 6:30 laying there and hubby sound asleep,jumped up he had gotten wet! Turned out that he didn't turn the dial for the tv antenna on the roof of the trailer and rain got in on his leg. At least it isn't a leak.
So stopped raining long enough for the dog to get out and do her biz. now it not too bad but getting very dark. Should be interesting hooking the trailer up in the rain..... we will see how well his patience holds out. I for one wish he would get up now and we can get moving. oh well this will be our test on how to hook in the rain, drive in the wind and rain.
dh was in pain last eve, he got a really bad sunburn on the tops of his legs. first time he wore shorts in ages, I on the otherhand was laying in the sun and didn't get burnt at all. he was putting cold clothes on it, and then rubbing sunscreen in cos I didn't bring any lotion with me.
Well better try to pack up what I can in here, so when he gets up we have only to eat and then do those dishes and then get the trailer hooked.
hope for the best. cya when we get home!! LOLhugs

    Sounds like your poor hubby had a bad day--first getting sunburned and then getting water leaked on him.


Hope today is more fun for you both.
