looks even better

Saturday, June 23, 2012

It takes a lot of work to make something look really special.
I did my 10,000 steps today and my son got his work done on the new stairs.
He moved the water hose and was working on the new bedroom he is making for us when we visit him in town.

Now as for walking we walked around the mall and then we walked to see the parade on Greenback lane. We needed to purchase some special stockings for my friend's plane trip. I guess they keep the blood from pooling around the legs.

More change

Thursday, June 21, 2012

So the work goes on and I get to see the work without having to walk through the mess.
I am just aching to go visit and see the final results.

The changes are so incredable I just am so impressed I could never have figured out how to make this work.

I know this was designed by M but he had help from an engineer to get the design to be permanent.

I just get so excited because I have had such a hard time negotiating the steps in the past ... I am so excited that they have been able to accomplish so much.
The vision to see things in a new way is something I have trouble with doing.
They had the vision and the ability to follow up on the project.

So today I am thinking about the stairs at my son's house.
The house is on a hill and the original owner did a questionable job with the stairs from the street down to the house.
So he went to the city and got approval for an architectural design and got an engineer to plan it
. So he had the old stairs torn out and build a temporary staircase.

Hopefully every thing will go well and it will look better

He cannot do the work himself because it is really important to get this done correctly.
I did do over 5000 steps today, hurrah.
It was a wonderful Father's day and I took hubby out to his favorite greasy spoon.
Talked to my Dad on the phone. Hopefully stayed in my calorie range.
Did not walk enought as triple digets make even early morning and late evening uncomfortable.

Keep up the walking dispite the heat.

Thursday, June 14, 2012

It has been so hot I am walking on the tread mill because it is too hot to walk outside after 8 or so. I just find if I am walking with someone I have a better day.
I hope to play bingo tonight ... but maybe not it is such a waste of money.
I never win.

Kitty is outside complaining it is too hot to be out here.
so I will let her go and check back here later.
I changed the color of my spark page to reflect how hot it is today.

  Came across this blog and wanted to tell you that our local senior center has Bingo for free. Maybe there are ones in your area that are also free. They meet once a week and the prizes are donated by Railey's market giving $5. gift certificates.

    It's terribly hot here too! But I don't walk outside for security reasons - just too much violence here - muggings, killings etc.

So I exercise in my home, and any walking is at the mall, or as last week, at the zoo!

Well I have been walking more

Saturday, June 09, 2012

So I walked with two different people today and I counted each walk separately and put it on two different days. I want to keep track of my walks.

Walking and talking with people I care about is so important.
I have been doing only small amounts of official exercise but... I really want to do more but I need to walk to work off the calories and take off more of the weight I reagained slowly over the last few months. I have not been happy and have been in a lot of pain.
It would not go away. It was keeping me from doing what I really need to do.
So I will walk but I have to have the courage to go to Best buy and see if they have a record of the thing I purchased and see if they will take it back and give me something that will let me listen to the radio.

    4-5-6 WALKS A WEEK is a great gift to yourself.

And YES, be sure to go to Best Buy, try to make an exchange and get what it is you REALLY WANT, so you have a player device with a radio.

    Good for you for getting that exercise in! I'm trying to exercise too in spite of the knee pain - have to stick to no-impact exercises.

Hope you feel better and have a great week! emoticon Marge
