What a Day with my mom!

Friday, January 18, 2013

Had to take mom in and get a cast on her foot. Made for a really long day. She is now wearing a beautiful hot pink cast with a walking boot. Spent most of yesterday afternoon at her house doing things for her and we ate pizza! Not on our lists of what we can eat right now. That really sent the BG out into outer space!

Today is looking a little bit better. I am home and just checking on her or her calling with anything she needs. I will go up in a little while to spend some time with her and will fix dinner for both of us.

Well off to work on the kitchen so I can continue sewing on a baby quilt! That is my relaxation therapy!

Oh and I have my walk tracked out and know the mileage thanks to spark people! I also did a short work out with one of the online videos in here.

    Glad you were able to get your Mom taken care of and get that workout video done. Did the 20 minute resistance band workout this afternoon. Enjoyed that one. emoticon

Weight Gain!!! So frustrating

Thursday, January 17, 2013

I found out that I have gained about 10 lbs total back over the last 4 months or so. Really frustrating. Having a lot of cravings and food calling to me.

Any ideas how to help deal with those issues would be much appreciated.

    emoticon Distract yourself! Craft, take a bath, go for a walk, come to spark, etc. Anything you like to do that would make eating difficult while doing it. There are some spark articles to check out too, I believe they are under the Motivation section.

What a day!

Finally got the computer back today so can now come in here and look around.

Also went to an orchard today and picked up some fresh food! The apples are great! But it was a long day and I am very tired.

    Glad you have the computer back. There is so much on the site it can be mind boggling in the beginning. Looking around for the things you like best is a good idea and asking for help when something doesn't go right is the easiest way to learn the site. If I can be of help "give a holler".

Could sure use some help in moving around in this site.

I have been gone for a year because I lost all my info to get back in here and in part because it is so hard to navigate and find things that I need to go back to. I really could use some friends in here to help me out. Thank you very much.

    You can add me on and I can help you navigate around here. Tell me where you need help first and let's go from there

Christmas! Fun but, I am not getting my exercise in.

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

I feel great, but I am frustrated with not being able to get any work outs in during the holidays. Rush, Rush, Rush and I am not even in a hurry! Can anyone help me find some inexpensive hand weights that are from 1-5 or so pounds? I have a shoulder injury that I need to work on and need very lite weights to work with.

It h as been down in the 20s here and too cold to go out for a walk with the dogs. It has just started warming up since last night and it is now raining. Don't like the rain but at least it is not as cold as the 20 degrees we were having!
