Injury & the flu ... can I have some cheese w/my whine?

Wednesday, March 04, 2009

Well, sports fans. I was out and about Sunday in the rain running errands and had a big fall which has injured my left knee and lower back. Got up Monday w/flu symptoms (aches, sniffles, fever ... yuk). So am currently nursing myself back to health w/bedrest, fluids, decongestants, and chicken soup.

    I'm so sorry you don't feel well. I will pray you get better fast. I know what it feels like to be down and out. You will heal your injury faster if you can move it even just slightly. Get better soon.

    Plenty of chicken soup for starters. And don't stay down too long, you will get stiff and sore after that nasty fall...
Get well soon..

Rainy Day Sunday #2

Sunday, March 01, 2009

UH OH! 4:30 am and it's raining. Hubby is up and at 'em. I could not get my chunky bum out of the bed with him. So I hit the snooze button until 6am, finally got up and observed that it was still raining. Hmmm, looks like I'll not be doing volunteer work at the Native Plant Demo-Garden today; I guess I can go to the gym instead. Alright lets get going.

    I would love it if you would send the rain to the Panhandle of Texas. emoticon
It sounds like you like working in a garden. I can never get anything to grow. I'm going to try one more time.

Don't forget to log your exercise and keep up the good work!

    Checked out our local Native Plant Demo Garden. Surprise. Is that you that I need to contact to talk about volunteering?

Am seriously considering it. But will have to get back to you on that, AFTER THE RAINS.

Shabbat Shalom

6AM. Happy Sabbath to all. I've got my bootie up. I've logged in to SparkPeople and decided to do some page editing ... Now I've got to grab some breakfast and get out to the gym.

Yep. I'm happy it's a beautiful Friday. I cant' wait to get out and do some gardening and take a walk and treat myself to some ice cream today!


Clinic appointment

Thursday, February 26, 2009

I had 8:30 clinic appointment to check on my blood sugar & pressure. I unfortunately forgot about testing blood sugar and had big breakfast before I went so I tested high (219). My bp was 135/76, which is better than last visit -but it still needs to be lower. Basically I'm improving, but need to do better.

Afterwards headed over to the gym to do my thing.

    135/76 doesn't sound bad for bp. Good job going to the gym. I know sometimes it is hard to work out but, I always feel better afterwards and it will pay off in the end. Keep up the good work.
