Tues, July 7, 2009 - Yesterday's Walk and so scared.

Tuesday, July 07, 2009

Yesterday, I took DH to his one day job. It was at a school that is being remodeled. I walked down big hill and back up, then I went to the track and walked, jogged, walked, the track. It was cool and crisp with overcast outside. I burned 627 calories. I did ok with eating, water, and then went to doctor appt. My ears were severely clogged. They pulled out a huge chunk of wax, then another 1/2 the size in same ear. Then they irrigated and got nearly nothing, but still have quite a bit of wax in ear. My ear was sore and so were my sinus after that. I came home and fell asleep. I woke up feeling a little better. I got my antibiotic which I am half afraid to take. It is once a day one and can have very serious side affects or allergic reaction that could include death. I am trying to get the nerve up to take the antibiotic. My DH can hardly walk or move and need to get him in to doctor today for his back. He slept wrong the other night, made it through work yesterday, but now he can't hardly move. I woke up to feeling better, know that I need to take my antibiotic. I am praying and waiting to call doctor for appt. Today, I am taking a day of rest, yes really. I might get on my wii fit or do some strength, but I most likely won't be doing any walking. Might clean house. DS text us and wants to come home and spend night. We are ok with it, but kind of strange. Think the honeymoon period is ending and suspect he has been told he needs to work things out or something happened over the 4th of July and not telling us. Guess we will find out more when he comes over.

I loved walking the track and moving, I am frustrated over the scale not moving. I was 180 at doctors and home yesterday, and need to really concentrate on getting it to move down this week; however, can't have anything with Iron, calcium, etc. so I am really limited to what I can eat. Meaning no slim fast, no milk, no cheese, no cereal because of Iron, I can't have meat or eggs, need to check to see if I can do protein shake, but I think it has vitamins like Iron and calcium, so think I can't have that either. Anyone that may read this, please put your prayers in for me. Pray I have no affects from antibiotic and only good results.

I will try to post blog later.

    Hi oh sometimes the cure is worse then the illness with all the possible side effects, but you need to take them-and not be scared you may have none of the supposed effects. Hope you & hubby are feeling better soon. Rest and eat what you can.

    Sorry to hear you are still struggling with the sinus issues. YES, you and your DH will be in my prayers. I hope this set of meds works for you. Take your day of rest and dont worry about the scale. Keep drinking your water and eating in your range and you will be fine until you are feeling better.

July 5, 2009 - The Pirates Game

Sunday, July 05, 2009

Well, I feel I have survived the weekend and that I have done overall well. Today, I burned 684 calories. We had a nice walk today. Did yesterday too, but took pics today.

All this seaweed, so slimy, I tell ya, it is hard to walk on. I bought nearly bit it several times.

Me on log start of our hike.

Big Shell

Just having fun

Another pic - using imagination playing pirates and I was captain of ship. The previous pic was me driving the ship. This one I am riding the bow.

The rock out at sea

loving the fresh air sailing upon the seas

The pilings peaking out at my true love

My true love who is a total dreamer

Crab, to eat on a deserted island

Pretty wild flowers against the sea wall

Sand Dollars the endangered species

My dreamer dreaming of sailing the open seas

The secret cove that can only be entered when the tide is low enough. We walk across to the cove's stream

The cove's stream

The secret trail upward to our secret hideout

The day was a beautiful day. I just love walking on the beach taking pics and day dreaming. DH does too.

July 3, 2009 Take It Easy BBQ

Saturday, July 04, 2009

Well, today wasn't much of a burn day. We pretty much had a lazy day. I did play with the horses a bit and walked around Jim and Jessi's ranch, but lazed around. DH and I had a bud lime with them, I didn't finish mine, he finished it for me. We drove to Flaming Geyser State Park. We stopped at Green Valley Meats and came home. We through on one T-Bone Steak, two small potatoes cut up in foil on the BBQ and had a small fresh dinner salad. We then came in and watched a DVD movie. I did enough moving around and burned 238 calories to keep streak going, but basically had a very lazy day.

Sat., July 4, 2009 - Puppies first real walk

Saturday, July 04, 2009

Today, or might I say, early this morning, rather than bike ride, Tami (MRSKRNR) and I took her new puppies walking. This was their first walk. We both expected to burn 250 calories as it was puppies first time. They surprisingly did very well and we burned 407 (Me) 415 (Tami). Not bad.

Love this pic, Tami and pups sitting there waiting so patiently for me. The pups are so adorable.

After walk and had to drink some water.

Me and the pups after walk before leaving.

FYI - they are momma doggies....Tami has got them quite spoiled as I expected. They really are sweet dogs.

    The Puppies are just darling. I am not hooked up with the chat room yet so I hope you didn't think I was ignoring you. Hope you are having a great weekend.
Where in Washington are you? I am in Oregon so we are not far from each other.
Hope you have a Happy and Safe Fourth of July.

July 2, 2009 - Stress / De-Stressing - Hike - 1,188 Burned

Thursday, July 02, 2009

Ok, I got up this morning, met Tami for our morning walk. This gave me great start as well as her to burning our calories. We walk again tomorrow! I got home, DH and I went for nice long walk on the beach of Dashpoint. Things going well, I was just a few calories from 900. I felt really good about it. I came home, discovered my bank, mind you 29 years, always paid everything, no matter what. Struggling with finances as we are unemployed, DH is on downtime. To make the story short, I went to account to find that my bill was paid that I paid but found that my line of credit, which I built up with my savings so I would have a good cushion, nothing bounce, etc. while we struggle, to find that they suspended my account. They said they did soft audit and my credit rating isn't as good so our accounts are suspended. What a crock. Anyways, I was furious and stressed. Really stressed. Then I was like bored, stir crazy, and DH said to me, want to go do the boardwalk? So off we went. We did two laps. It was nice, hot, beautiful out. I reached 1,188 calories burned.

- Me this morning

This is pic from this afternoon/evening. So pretty on the water, lots of boats too. I had to take this of the two kayaking. My deficit today is awesome -1,906

Yes, walking really does help with the stress.
