this is the work done on our walkway --now we can continue our walk without having to cross the big highway .
picture of the river and how high and fast it is flowing --we are standing on the bridge
same picture but a wider view
this was as far as we could walk on the path as it was really flooded
bikers and that just went through it but we turned and headed back home
mom and the kids with the flooded path in the background
a selfie of us before heading home
It was a great day -- and a great walk for December 26th!
I didn't even have a coat on... We also saw a man out cutting his grass --lol
Just in case you do not know me --- I live in Ontario Canada where we should be knee deep in snow
I have not blogged since Sept 28th.
Making progress on the foods --- my exercising is great --more pool time now .
I have to be more consistent! - Ann's (DIL) her job is here and there no set days or hours.
This makes it so hard for me to get into a routine for myself as well as Amelia (GD) .
My WI's --well this is just unreal.. I am still reading on my scale the same
This is killing me.. I can not even lose the 3 lbs.. so I can get back to at least original weight before the heart attack!!!
One of the pills I am taking (BP) was causing sore throat tongue and a bad cough. The nurse got them changed for me so finding no coughing now but the throat is still sore ..
Been 1 1/2 weeks now..thought the sore throat would be gone by now.
I got myself in a depression --sigh-- my doing . I will -have not as of yet- talked to my son and dil about making time for me and not taking advantage of me. With me living with them I am at their beck an call -- and I do not say NO.. I so need to learn this word and say it even if they get angry with me.
The running and babysitting has been non stop with no down time for me --before I could do it but now it takes its toll.. Yesterday after going to a birthday party with the 2 grand kids
I came home went to my room and LOL- that was that I went to sleep did not wake for 11 hours!
Saturday ended up being a no exercise day adding not eating properly along with exhausting myself at the party. Kids they be crazy! around other kids sweets balloons ect..
This is a new week and have my plans set to go swimming and treadmill waking at the Y .
then on Wednesday I will do swimming with Amelia ... we are quite active in the pool ...so that is good .
Keep at me sparkers to make me a priority also to speak up for myself ..
--thanks for reading
My WI was STS again. sigh but like a friend said to me stay the course .. I am getting & getting healthier.
I am happy! besides my workouts at the YMCA and my exercise at home , this past week I got to be in the pool with my granddaughter -Amelia -she is two and just learning to swim..as I mentioned in my last blog ..
This weekend I went to the Y open house --- tried out some things there -love the walking/running track.
I have a few pictures to share of the slide I went down with my GD.. scary for a 60 year old.. almost as bad as going down the water slide --LOL.
those were learning to swim with grandma --- I had fun.
the next photos are from the slide I went down with grand kids
a little blurry (my son took them)
my grandson Markus went down by himself
my granddaughter and I going down together --yikes
-here are the stairs I had to climb up carrying Amelia as she was not able to walk up them
another view of this monster --lol
a picture just for fun -
- a very fun day in all --lots of walking too.
Not good eating --hotdog -- juice box and granola bar there
-then today my sis's birthday so of course I had cake
Winnifred will be 77 tomorrow
All in all a good week ! I am happy This week will be the best
Had a great day at the Y today
then got over to another Y and got some water time in with my GD .
She is taking swimming lessons and I was asked to be in the pool with her.
oh boy I am so happy -- wore my spark activity tracker in the pool it tracked all my activity
fantastic workout -- better then the machines at the first Y..
In just a half hour I burned more calories in the pool then 50 minutes on the machines.
LOL but when it came time to get out of the pool I could barely manage to climb up the stairs .. and could barley walk for awhile .. why?
well with my bad knees --fibro and rheumatoid arthritis I was weak..
I always have said you get a better workout in water then on land ..
Within a half hour I was good to go again so all good!
I love water aerobics -- getting back to it in 2 weeks!!
go jo go!
Forgot to let you know my eating is still a work in progress --- still not getting all the olive oil they want me to eat.. but I did try hummus the other day--- it is good for the heart too-
and I liked it so will eat it again .. so eating is good but still needs improvement .
