walking

Friday, May 27, 2011

Well we don't have a treadmill or a bike but hopefully I'll be able to get one at a garage sale if they have any here after the storm. I've been walking to and from the church each day so I've been getting in around 30 min. each day. That helps a lot. Weather is improving. It's getting sunny and I've heard on the news today they may get the trolley's up and running again. They can't go very far. LOL Hope

    30 minutes of walking is good. Not as much as you want but "under the circumstance...tornado...." it's something! I'm glad that the sun is out. Thanks for the updates. HUGS.

anxiety

Thursday, May 26, 2011

I have had anxiety about tornado's ever since I went through one years ago. I would always pay attention to the sirens that went off etc. I guess some people used to say I was schitzo because of my fear of another one hitting. Now some people understand my fear after going through it themselves with this big one hitting. I guess I feel a type of justification in being afraid and not being alone anymore in how I feel. Hope

  Hope, fears and anxiety(if not excessive) are a good thing... they are how our body make us aware of impending danger & to ignore those warnings without reason is foolish. I've never been through a tornado (except we now know the eye of any hurricane is made up of multiple tornadoes), however, I've been through many hurricanes(FL... KeyWest) & earthquakes (CA).One fast becomes a respecter of nature. My prayer are with your community and specifically with you and your family! emoticon

    I have never been through a tornado, but I certainly do understand your feelings. I get very anxious and nervous too if there is severe weather in our area.

About 11 years ago we had a very bad windstorm, which I thought at the time was tornado. At that the time the mobile home I was living in was not tied down (though I didn't know it at the time). I remember it woke me up around 5am, I was so scared; I heard a chair hit the side of my house, the lights went out, and I was standing in my hallway shaking like a leaf and holding my cat and trying to find information on the radio at the same time. One of my neighbors had a tree fall into the middle of her house from that storm.

    I think that it is normal to have a cautious "fear" of tornadoes when the sirens are blaring. I am from Nebraska so have heard plenty of sirens. I've never been in a tornado though. HUGS to you as you depend your Lord to calm your anxieties. You can minister to those around you.

    ANYONE SHOULD BE AFRAID OF TORNADO'S......... PLUS ONCE THEY HIT ONE PLACE.... THEY ARE KNOWN TO COME BACK...... ANYONE WHO DOESN'T TAKE COVER WHEN A TORNADO IS COMING...... IS JUST CRAZY........

exercise

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

They turned our exercise room where my apt. is into a storage room for housing which lost its building in the tornado. Our treadmill is broken. Also PSR where I went to 4 days a week is closed because of the tornado. They had circuit training there at the Y 4 days a week. I need a bike to get around town and to exercise with. I"m going down fast where exercise is concerned. It's pouring out so its hard to walk in the city. Hope

  Hope, if all else is unavailable try listening to, or better yet, singing and moving to old gospel hymns and worship choruses. It will also help you emotionally as well as spiritually! emoticon

    Thanks for the update. What does PSR mean? Also, did part of your complex get hit...thus needing the storage area for some of the contents of the building? I'm so glad that YOU and your family are ok. Do you have halls in the building that you can walk in? I often just watch TV and walk in place. It can't replace your bike but it's something.

flooding

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

We are getting severe thunderstorms and flooding after the tornado's we had. President Obama is coming today to survey the damage. Some aren't pleased but then some people never are. I know I"m like that somedays. I'm glad a lot of people are OK. Our PSR is cancelled until further notice. Hope

Sunday, May 22, 2011

This is my new haircut. My oldest DD cut it last night for me. I think she did a good job. She flattened it with an iron.
the other puppy with 1 blue eye and 1 brown eye.

This is one of my summer hats. Hope
