Okay guys I am back from our holiday, from getting dad back home so ready to have a me day. Just me, dh and getting groceries.
yesterday turned out good knee wise and I was able to go with my friend to the salt marsh trail. We did 4km at med speed I suppose. That was fine as I had to watch my knee an she had new shoes on. Later we went to get dad at the airport and he didn't want to go home so we went for chinese. Well all was fine, tasted great, even though I knew the sodium would have me up, I figured dad doesn't want to be alone after being with family and then plop him off at his house so no I went. Ended up in bathroom many times so between bad cramps and interupted sleep I didn't do well.
This morning I feel fine, but am up - way up as the Friendly Giant used to say ( Canadian kids my age will remember Freindly and Jeronme the giraffe and Rusty the rooster! but most of all the chair to curl up in!) anyway, I am back on track. Wrote my food, took my pills, and will get my liquids into me. I walked the dog and will walk myself perhaps over to see Thomas.
Okay gotta get some laundry started and the kitchen tidyed.
Cya later. have a great day all!

Okay this may be long but have some things to say and talk to my reg. spark friends about.
First off my neice Kim is still in hospital but her heart hasn't done that again so they are hoping it will, or she goes home with heart monitor for while. She is probably facing surgery either way just depends how fast on where this problem is located in her heart.
2nd Ei called me yesterday afternoon, and sooooo sorry sorry , but you are now changed to reg. ei and will get $ in your bank in 2 days for sure. WHEW a huge whew. and also asked some questions on retraining and a few other things I needed to know. I haven't been on EI since way way back when you did it all by hand, and took your sheet in. So now will call and see about the re training, apparently you usually have to try to find work for 3 months, and know that my sick time looking doesnt count as wasnt supposed to even look.
I called the IT training I was told about by job bank. They are not geared to anyone getting ei in last 3 -5 years but she said if she has empty spaces she will take others. so hoping for an empty space. will find out when she fills her course requirements. so guess I need to call the number about re training. But have to wait to get my first money and then also my first forms done.
My sil ( dh sister) and bil were over last night. She is my new inspiration. She has always been my fav. sil of the 5 of them. She like many of us gained wt with each child. She was obese not sure what she weighed but looked at least 240-250 and is about 5'4 r 5. Few years ago at least 5 her hubby quit his job, bought part of the biz from his boss all on a loan and went out on his own but had the clients. Still stressful and her bp went up. Dr suggested walking so she started walking, and kept at it, eventually joining a womans gym. She has now become very fit, trim and healthy. She has scoliosis, thyroid issues and low iron. So has her own medical issues that can make her lose wt slower make her tired ect. she has persevered and has been for at least 3 years now at around 120-125. looks great and has some serious muscles. she goes to the gym daily and they asked her if she would work the desk for 2 hrs week. not much but whynot. well they just realized she doenst have cpr etc. so they cant give her more hurs but if she wants to get her cpr, and some general fitness training they will give her more hrs. She said okay, she has to pay for this but after that they will help her upgrade and will help her do more to be fitness instructor!!!! she is so pleased and excited and I am too, she will not be doing arobics but the one that helps on the machines and weights. good for her.
so she is telling me this last night, and I am so glad for her, and happy that things are going great. I said so cool, you knwo darlene i think of this often. I want to do something that can help and benefit women that are not sure of themselves and unsure where to turn and what to do. I more want to incoprorate the entire being I guess a wellness coach or something. so she said well do it. I am not sure what I have to start at or where to start. there are not a lot of that around, fitness centers yea so may go ask where do I start ect. I know that unless they have courses that ei will pay for it can't be my main goal but hey would need secretarial to do biz end. So Darlene is my motivator. Also once we get our basement set up, I may ask her to come over and show me some weights that she does. She did say once when I said I was doing whatever she said great that is a good wt. I was there and just work it up. so since dh drags his feet, I may ask her. That is a while yet but thats okay at least thinking about it.
My knees are both achy but it is dull, rainy and foggy very foggy, so I took an arthrotec and my reg vitamins. The back of my right is sore enough that when I get up it buckles so will be going slower today just to take care. but will try to do the bike or just some floor stuff while biggest loser is on.
Dad is leaving today to visit his twin brother in Ontario today, they are the only ones left of 9 kids. Glad he is still able at 85 to do this on his own, he did agree to a w/c at the airport as his legs are not great. So we have his car while he is gone, tomorrow I will go give his apt a great airing out and cleaning while he is gone. perhaps we will rent a carpet cleaner between us, him and lisa and do all our carpets. his need them badly. Then we leave on friday for PEI for dh mothers 75 bday. my sil mentioned above is driving with us, as her hubby will be coming later. i hope that my neice is okay and able to atttend the party too.
Well yea I was long winded today, lol but really feel good and optimistic even with my achy knees today. I am down to 191 even lowest in long while which is nice. Today, take dad to airport, do 2 loads of laundry, make healthy supper and maybe get my hair cut. have to call dil to see if they are busy adn if son is working other job this eve cos then he and dh and baby can hang out while she cuts my hair. so hair cut and see Thomas. bonus.
I hope that you are all having a good day and can really see that we can do this. I am trying to make sure that I hang onto this positive motivation and keep moving and eating well, must get my water back on track.
hugs cya later
