OH what you can do with a CANE while waiting!!!!

Friday, June 22, 2012

One morning as I was getting the coffee ready to perk I glanced over at the cane propped in the corner ( it is over a 100 years old belonged to my Step Dad's Dad. ) As the coffee was brewing away I picked it up & put it behind my neck & did 50 turns from side to side with only moving the upper body ( not your hips ) then I put both arms out to the side & did 50 sweeping circles forward & backward it helps with pumping the blood to the heart ( my mother in law's heart Dr. told her to do them every morning ) then as a finish up I took both arms with fist clenched & punched the air as if boxing 50 times. I started doing this every morning since last Monday. Makes me feel real good I perk right along with my coffee!!!!!

Heat & lack of sleep but also so blessed!!!

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Today I had off work as I work the weekend. We went to pick out our camper paneling this early morning. The heat is exhausting, plus I only had 3 hours sleep I am now feeling sick because of the heat & lack of sleep. I had plans to clean all windows today here at home,but I must put off as I am so not feeling well. There is always another day as I am blessed that is all I have wrong with me heat exhaustion & lack of sleep. I think of my beloved brother having the fight of his life & other spark folks going through severe illness & other issues. Take care everyone

Doing what you do not want to & end up doing the opposite & feeling good

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Today was in the high 90's & very very humid!!!! I had already made my mind up as I was walking out of work after 9 & 1/2 hours that I was coming home & just sitting in the air conditioned house as I was wiped out.
I came home & made an egg salad sandwich that was so loaded with garden red lettuce you could not even see the bread on the sides. Yum Yum !!!
I then went out & watered all the flower beds, I cleaned the bathroom & hall closet, & cleaned out the freezer & refrigerator I put in the wash & was outside hanging clothes in the dark at 9:30 pm. I went through the cupboards & got rid of excess items to take to the center. It was 11:00 pm when I finally sat down!!! Gee what happened to my evening of just sitting in the air conditioned house??? I must add I feel real good of getting this house work done especially when I had my mind made up to not do anything!!!! So I was thinking as I was doing my house work it is no big deal to do this house work it is something that must be done, but what I was thinking here was my mind was made up earlier not to, anything, but I had thought to my self yes I am tired but how would I feel if I reversed that & did something about it. I feel more energized as I kept doing my work & my mind was winding done from the day's work. So instead of doing nothing when I feel lax I will at least do something productive. I sure worked some calories off & have a healthier mind thought!!!

    Nice Job! Anything is better than nothing and it sounded like you needed to do that for yourself! It helped you relax as you continued through the night!
Great job! Take care!

    Good for you! I find when I am tired and just want to nap or sit still if I get up and move around I feel so much better.
Great plan.
Have a terrific day.

    And waking up to a clean & organized house probably felt great too!

    So often we fail to recognize the exercise in housework, it definitely has a value. It is a win/win was we feel such grand satisfaction in putting our house in order. Good for you busy lady.

Eating less at family reunion!!!

Sunday, June 10, 2012

We went to the family reunion today so proud of my self did not eat any meat & did not have a plate over flowing. Had one tablespoon of a variety of certain foods.As far as desserts had a teaspoonful of 6 kinds . No soda or sugared ice tea I took my own water. Sure felt good not having to groan & moan because I felt like an overstuffed turkey ( I did not know how lean the meat was & the chicken was done in some kind of white sauce ) Hope you all had a good day the temp here is 90 . Take care
