wow what a day yesterday with exercise

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

good Morning; Yesterday, I did the gym in the morning and lots of chores for DD.
DD has been very nice to me. Yesterday, I did 5 loads of laundry, cleaned her house and took Addy to and from daycare. DD cooked a lovely meal which I could eat.
GD was fun to be with- no tantrums. She is talking a blue streak. On the way home from daycare, she tells me "I have many friends." emoticon today I take GD to daycare, but then I have the day off, but have to baby sit tonight b/c DD and SIL going out to eat. My plan for today is to go to DD's house this morning- then go back to hotel do exercise - I am going to try to get a nap in so I can stay up until 9 which is past my bedtime at home. 11 pm my time. I plan to read my book. Already read one book. Then go to bookstore to get another book for the rest of the week. DD thanked me over and over for helping her. I walked up and down stairs taking laundry baskets to and from. I am amazed on how much lifting and stairs I did. I credit my stamina due to strength training I have been doing. My knees are sore, but nothing like I was last year. So far I am very pleased how this visit is going. TG. I was worried, but my fears are unfounded. I got my DD back. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon 20,000 steps yesterday ! emoticon

got my exercise in already

Monday, August 18, 2014

Good Morning; I am on my home town time instead of DD's time. Talked to DH this morning. I did not go to late dinner last night- I was so tired by 6 pm -I could not function any more. I got myself a light dinner at Whole Foods. Took a good shower and went to bed- slept all night long. Wonderful!! I feel great! gym was rough this morning - room smelled like a gym and not much ventilation. I did it any ways. I am proud that I got it in b/c DD gave me alot of organizing in the house to do. DD commuting to SF today. I am cleaning out GD closet and sorting out her clothes for next size and doing laundry. DD has to go to a Laundromat on campus. I have done this before
- I am taking a book and bottle of water. So I better get in the shower, now and get ready for taking GD to day care. Have a emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon good day!!!

need to be on alert.

Sunday, August 17, 2014

Good afternoon; I am at DD's house. I walk in the door. DD tells me that we are eating outside with a friend of theirs at 8 pm tonight. That is late for me when I just got in and got up at 3 am to take the first plane out this morning.
I know the family but I am going to try to excuse myself around 8:30 pm. I may fall into my plate due to tiredness. I have to play it my ear. This time zone difference can be hard to handle at first. Have a good day. The challenges one takes when not being in their own surroundings. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Just send GD a baby

Saturday, August 16, 2014

Good Morning; Going to see DD soon. She asked me to send her my GD's Christmas
present early. She is going to give the doll to GD at the hospital when she delivers.
I am going early b/c she is nesting again. She wants to organize her house and do more shopping. I am not sure what now. She did so much when I was there in June. GD's daycare will be closed 2 days that week so I am to entertain her those days. DD will be going on leave soon. She is so exhausted that she wants to take some time off b/4 delivery. emoticon I am going to be very careful of my program b/c last time it was not a great visit. DD was so critical at me. I am not staying at her house this time so I am going to use the small gym at hotel hopefully daily. that is my plan. have a good day! Have not heard much from DS. I have to let go. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sorry you have to stay in a hotel instead of your family. I love staying with my family when I visit.

  I love that you have decided to stay at a hotel. Hoping she realizes that you were uncomfortable and makes an effort to accept and support you for all you do!

    Something I did to curb the "Yeah, ok, the baby is cute, now when do we send him back?" was give my DS a teddy bear for himself and one to give to his sister when she arrived. It just made him feel special to give her something.

Good luck! HUGS

I was a little down yesterday

Friday, August 15, 2014

Good Morning; yesterday I was a little down- emotionally. I tried to see what was happening to be like this. I think it was my diet - even though - everything was tracked and I exercised daily. I think I had too many carbs like fruit. I have been eating cherries and watermelon. I have even tracked my glucose even though I am not diabetic. I took a sugar buster "Nopal Cactus" and a little while later my mind was clear. I have learned my body can change and react to certain foods. It is all ok.
I have to remain flexible and listen to my body. Have a good day! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    absolutely! My brain gets foggy and depressed if I have too many simple carbs. I love fruit, but things like grapes, banana, watermelon . . . they all have to be highly portion controlled because they do cause the spike in my blood sugar (I am type 2) So, good for you for figuring that out.

HUGS and hope the weekend is a good one for you.

    Yes--we all have to listen to our bodies. It knows what we need.
