Well, you all asked so nicely.....

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

....so here it is. A picture of me as Professor Minerva McGonagall. Enjoy, because I'm not much of a one for having photos taken of me. *grin*



I don't do well taking photos of myself in a mirror. Should have switched the flash off! LOLOL













Then I tried the bathroom mirror. Which was better except, well, you can see what happened! LOLOL













Anyhoo.... Tara came to the rescue:









Oops! That was when I was reaching for my broom. Let's try again!










There you go! Me with my witchy Familiar! Zombie-Dog! :-)
Maybe I need to go back into town to get me my own hat! LOLOL
Hugs,

    Your photos are great, from the first to the last - each one even better than the last. I thought that shadowy figure lurking behind the flash of light in the mirror was done deliberately, hahah.

You made a wonderful Professor McGonagal, and as for your familiar, sooo wonderful. Really got into the spirit of the whole thing, bright, zombie-like eyes (? do zombies have bright flashing eyes?)...

Also love the way you just sooo casually mention you were just reaching for your broom. Going for a ride, perhaps? lol.

I slept like a witch last night. :-)

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

I went to sleep with a broomstick leaning against my wardrobe and a witch's hat draped over the bedpost. LOL Having not realised Tara had popped the hat there, you can imagine my surprise to see it when I woke this morning. Incidentally, She got me into the hat and informed me that I looked just like Professor McGonagall. Maggie Smith, eat your heart out! *grin*

I did a slightly wet twenty minute walk this morning, on a sore heel. The dratted thing has cracked quite badly, so I'm having to be careful how I walk, and not walk too fast. Hmmm... I bought some Flexitol heel balm while at the chemist yesterday. It is twice the price of the Scholl stuff, but the Scholl isn't designed for deep cracks (sorry if tmi).

I tell you one thing. Two good applications and my heels already feel heaps smoother and look a lot better. I've had this problem before and worked through it without applying creams, but that was in my sedentary days, when I only did a small amount of walking and was sat four days out of seven. I don't want to have to stop my new walking plan while the heel heals - the heel heals - that's funny! *grin*

The tube offers visible improvement in three days. Try twenty-four hours! I'm rubbing on cream first and last thing each day, and will continue with it once they are better to keep them from cracking again. It will be worth the nearly £6 every so often through the winter if it works. ( I have no idea how long a tube lasts.)

I feel the same way, incidentally, about my Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream. The cold plays havoc with my hands, and though I've tried different creams, most smell, and that can be very off-putting when you're eating, having florally-scented hands near your nose while trying to munch your lunch. :-) Neutrogena is expensive in comparison, but it only takes the tiniest amount to smooth your hands and it is smell-free. I've had my current tube for well over a year. Most people who visit end up trying a teeny squeeze for themselves too, so it is lasting well. :-)

I did some Tiggering after my walk to make up my steps. I think it was about 20 minutes or so. I was engrossed in a show called Cowboy Trap at the time, so I forgot to check the clock.

After breakfast, which as usual involved porage and apple - a huge sweet tree-matured cox - *Melts in joy* - I did a ten minute upper body video, followed by two other exercises. The first was modified push-ups, which I modified still further by doing them against the wall. The second was torture. It involved lying face down and laying your arms parallel to your body, palms facing the ceiling. You then raise your arms and lower them. It is a lot harder than it sounds. They are called Lying Triceps Lifts, and I'd be lying if I said I liked doing them. ;-)

I spent the time from then until a late lunch double-checking all my paperwork is in order and accessible, so that tomorrow I can sit down with the tax return form, knowing that I have everything where I can easily lay my hands on it. A good and constructive time. :-) Now I'm having a little Sparking time before getting on with a few other things I need to do.

Pork, Apple, Honey and Rosemary Chipolatas for dinner tonight. Tara loves trying different sausages, and this time even I'm intrigued. They are only tiny, so won't be a huge expense calories-wise, the two I'm having are about the equivalent of one normal-size sausage (think Richmonds), and I have a little mash and a heap of yummy veg to eat with them. They have Lamb and Mango burgers in Waitrose too - 99p each. I am very tempted to get one of those to try later in the week. :-)

Well, enough of my ramblings. I have an appointment with a friend, a beach, and a picnic basket to discuss finding me a man, and I'm running late. LOLOLOL

Oh, and the broomstick is shedding! *grin*

Have a great day!

    Lexie, thank you, thank you, thank you. Your wonderful sense of humor just gave me the giggles. It's been one of those days for me and I needed the humor. I spent the afternoon at the new library wearing a respirator mask and looking like Darth Vador's mother. I didn't have the mask to begin with and really scared myself to the point of having to be escorted outside to my vehicle because of difficulties breathing and feeling light headed. We phoned our emergency facilities contact and had Sheldon bring me a respirator mask as Sally and I needed to finish the evacuations procedures...talk about irony!
I will definitely be spending the rest of the week at the old library *grin*. At least I now own a respirator mask and just might find myself having to wear it all day in order to be at work. I will need to go outdoors to my vehicle to have breaks, but at least I'm ready for Halloween!

I'll be taking things easy tonight and tomorrow as my chest is really sore and my throat a bit raw at the moment, but should be good in the next 24 hours.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Lex,

With my luck the broom would have fallen on the bed in the night and scared the daylights out of me...lol You will have to share a pic of you in that get up...if you are giving Maggie Smith a run for her money it should be quite the picture...lol

Glad to hear you have found something to take care of your heels and hands....winter is the worst for my hands and feet as well. Perhaps I will take a look and see if they carry your wonder creams here! I am with you on hand creams that are scented...strong scents from soap, lotions and potions cause instant migraines never mind those lovely people who bath in their perfume and cologne! All they have to do is walk past and the headache is instant!!

I am glad that everything is organized for what hopefully will be smooth sailing with your tax forms in the morning.

Dinner sounds yummy and that date you have about a man sounds interesting...I expect a full update...lol

Have a great one!

Flexitol is GOOD stuff! I found several tubes of it on clearance at a store here and bought it all up. You're right, nothing works as well as that or the Neutrogena hand creme.

The sausages sound quite tasty! Let us know how you like them.

It could be worse....

Monday, October 25, 2010

The dentist went.... well, it went. :-)

Tara is doing well on the whole. She has to change her dental routine slightly, trying a mouthwash and dental floss for the first time, and she has the beginning of decay in one tooth that the dentist is going to fix with a procedure that coats the tooth to protect it. Otherwise her mouth is looking good. :-) He gave her a little instruction on the amount of time she spends brushing her teeth and gums - 2 minutes, not 10 seconds he said. LOL

My lump is an infection caused by some kind of tissue growth under my tongue. The dentist has referred me to the hospital for a consultation. Oh good. I get to go to the hospital again. With another lump. emoticon
Oh the irony! LOL

Other than that, considering I've had these same dentures for 25 years, my bite is still good, and he said that all they need is a little work to make them sharper for biting. They are pretty worn in places. LOL He can work on that once the hospital has sorted out my lump.

So, the dreaded visit was painless, and the new dentist surgery gets a thumbs up from both of us. Tara didn't cry even though she wasn't exactly thrilled about things, and is actually fine about going back next Thursday to have the procedure done. Of course, the dentist telling her that it is a pain-free procedure probably helped. :-)

Then we went round the corner to a couple of shops and picked up a witch hat for 99p, and a broomstick for �1.49, so Tara's happy. :-)





A few necessaries at Waitrose on the way back, and we are set. :-) Now I have to finish the tax return paperwork. I have until the end of the week to decipher the actual form, fill it in and send it off. Otherwise I'll have to do it *horrors* ON LINE! *eep!* I can do this! I have all the receipts and stuff sorted out, so I can do this. I can do this. I really can!



But this evening I Spark! So there! :-)

Oooh, in all the excitement I nearly forgot! I did a 25 minute walk this morning, and a 10 minute lower body video, and two other exercises. The first was running lunges, which are great fun and so funny. Anyone watching would be in fits of laughter because you kind of fake-run, arms included, like people used to do in those very early black and white films. Think Harold Llloyd or the Keystone Cops. *grin* For sheer entertainment value and feel good smiles, I think they are my new favourite strength exercise. :-)

I also did those calf raises that you have to do while leaning against a wall with your legs wide apart, and squatting in a sitting position. Not so good. Six of those and my legs were all a-quiver! It wasn't easy, but I did my two sets of 12 reps, even if it was more like 4 sets of 6. I was very pleased with myself. :-)

My right hip was aching on the way back from town, but is holding up well in the circumstances. It's all good. :-) So, off to my inbox to see who has been blogging and who's been waving to me. emoticon

Catch you all later.
Hugs,
Lex xxx

Food LOLs. Well, it fits with the teeth thing. :-)

    Lex,

Well all in all it was a day of getting thing done. I think you are just going to have to resign yourself that you are a lumpy gal...lol I am sure it is nothing that a few more antibiotics can't cure. Here our dentist would have given you a prescription and away you would go. Don't you dare go having any procedures done until it has healed....freezing does not take when there is infection...ask me I learned the hard way! Hopefully they get you and your lump in and taken care of sooner than later.

Great job on the exercising all those wobbles mean the muscles are working hard!!! WAY TO GO!!

Good luck with the tax forms...YOU CAN DO THEM!!

Tara looks like a very happy young lady....all ready ...and now the wait...lol

Have a great evening sparking.

A week in Review (17th - 23rd Oct 2010) Week 9 of Walking Plan

Monday, October 25, 2010

NUTRITION

Fruit and Veggies
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
5, 6, 5, 6, 5, 7, 6 = 40/35 (record 49)
Over the minimum. :-)

Water
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
8, 8, 9, 8, 9, 8, 8 = 58/56 (record 67)
Over the minimum. :-) It could have been more actually. Some days I lost track, but I knew that I had drunk at least eight glasses on those days. :-)

I have a routine, kind of, with water:

1 glass with the nutrigrain bar during my warm-up. 1 bottle(2 glasses) during walk and strength training. 1 glass after breakfast, before first cuppa. 1 glass before lunch, and 1 glass after lunch, and the same before and after dinner, sometimes two after dinner. I find that if I remember to follow this routine as a minimum, I know that I get at least 8 glasses in each day, without having to keep counting them. :-) Of course, it does mean that I don't always remember how many I had over the eight. LOL I'm laughing because in the UK, 'one over the eight' means being drunk! I wouldn't be able to remember how many drinks I'd had then either. *grin*

Nutrition Basics
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Calories in range 3/7 (record 5/7) I was a Baaaad girl. *grin*
Fat in range 5/7 (record 6/7) and yet the fat was pretty good on the whole.
Carbs in range 5/7 (record 7/7)
Protein in range 6/7 (record 6/7) Great protein result this week!

3 out of the seven days all my nutrition basics were in range. That's quite something! :-)

FITNESS
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


STEPS
4200 steps met and exceeded every day except Sunday.
Minimum daily steps target stays at 4200 for a second week.

Sun: 2651
Mon: 8753
Tue: 6110
Wed: 9395
Thur: 4659
Fri: 9768
Sat: 5489

Total steps for the week: 46825
Only very slightly less than last week. :-)

Average daily steps = 6689 (record 7858)

TOTAL FITNESS MINUTES
(warm-up, cardio, strength and stretches combined)

Sun: 30
Mon: 85
Tue: 75
Wed: 95
Thur: 60
Fri: 90
Sat: 55

Total minutes for the week: 490 (Record 505)
Average daily minutes = 70 (Record 72)
(I have only been keeping records of the minutes for a couple of weeks)

MILEAGE

Sun: 1.21 miles
Mon: 3.98 miles
Tue: 2.78 miles
Wed: 4.27 miles
Thur: 2.12 miles
Fri: 4.44 miles
Sat: 2.50 miles

Total mileage for week: 21.3 miles (record 25.02 miles)
Bang on my aim of 21 miles per week again, which is great. :-)

WEIGHT
Lost 2 pounds!
Down to 13 stone 1lbs (183lbs)

Oh yes! :-)
Though I'm still waiting to see 12 stone something for the first time in years. :-)

I really did quite well this week. The only thing I had to let go was the strength training, but as the sinuses have slowly relinquished their hold somewhat in the last few days, I am feeling energised enough to get back in the swing with it this coming week. I can bend forward without pain now, though the nose running or sneezing tends to have taken the pain's place. I love that lower body stretch where you have your legs wide and squat, then collapse forward into the stretch, but sneezing while down there or having your nose running poses problems. LOL
All in all, I can handle the sneezes and runny nose. It is the bunged up and in pain part I can't handle. No pain killers needed yesterday or last Friday, and only one dose Saturday! Yay!

Well, I must dash. We have appointments at the dentist today, for check-ups. I have had a lump under my lower right gums for a while now, so that needs checking out. It wasn't hurting me at first, but it shrunk when I was taking the antibiotics for my sinuses, so it may be an abscess or something, and the last couple of days it's been a little sore that side when I chew too, so best to get it looked at.

I am no fan of going to dentists (bad experience as a child), so wish me luck. :-)
Catch you all later.
Have a great day!
Hugs,
Lex xxx

I did bicycle crunches! I never expected to manage that! :-)

Sunday, October 24, 2010

It is all the fault of that Walking Book of mine. *grin* You see, Mark Fenton, the author, wants us to start adding 20 mins of core exercises twice a week starting this week (week 10) on a Sunday and Wednesday.

Obviously he isn't rigid about this, and advises working up to the full time gradually, and if those days are bad for you, then you can swap them round, etc, etc.

Anyway, I needed a strength training shake-up, because my routine went to pot the last couple of weeks, what with one thing and another, so I reset my fitness plan so that I do core for 20 minutes on Sunday and Wednesday, lower body for twenty mins on Mon and Thur, and Upper for 20 mins on Tue and Fri, which makes Saturday my day off the strength training instead of Sunday. That works too, because it coincides with the day the longest walk of the week is scheduled, so the timing works quite well for me, not trying to strength train after a long walk. :-)

I am still doing various videos from the Bootcamp collection through the week as part of those 20 mins, but have allowed SP to generate exercises to do as well. I did four today, walking round my house doing walking squats was one, plus push ups against the wall, and some strange squat where you stick your legs alternately out to the side. Ministry of Funny Walks eat your heart out! LOL.

I removed one exercise, which I knew I wouldn't be able to do, and that left bicycle crunches. I nearly deleted those too, but then I had a brainwave! I got a pillow and laid it on my mini trampoline to cushion my back. I got into position, and gave it a shot, and it worked! I did two set of 12 reps! OK, so my range of movement wasn't as large as the demo, but the point is.... I did it!!!



So, I am wired! I am a very happy bunny! :-)



Yes, I bounced on Tigger too today! I had a 20 minute walk, twenty mins on Tigger, a few mins on Roo, had breakfast, and then did my strength training, before having a fandabidozi soak in the bath. I've sparked and sparked and now I'm cleaning the kitchen clutter to cook the dinner - sausage and bean casserole for me, and pasta for Tara.

Hope you are all having a great Sunday!
Hugs,
Lex xxx

This one's for you DAVEINSEOUL, my newest Sparkfriend! :-)

    I love you pictures, they make me laugh and puts a smile on my face. Great job your doing with your fitness and getting in those crunches in. I do my crunches on my bed and it helps to cushion my back. Have a great week, your new workout plan sounds great and doable. emoticon
