Good Morning; I am just enjoying the morning. I am reading the paper and drinking tea. I will exercise soon, but I am taking the morning off. I walked 2 miles yesterday and went to a museum. I love seeing new exhibits in museums or libraries. Hope every one is getting their movement in and also enjoying your family.
Good morning; Did a 2 mile walk - it was so cool outside. I could not believe it. What a surprise! I feel great! About to have breakfast, and start my day. It is a gorgeous morning here, hope all of you have a wonderful day and weekend. Get some movement in today!!
Good Morning; it is raining here and it is about 12 degrees cooler!! It is so fabulous. The heat was so intense I was outside talking to a neighbor and I was sweating. It is not supposed to be raining all weekend. My garden needs the water so much. I am looking into putting rain barrels up. Any one have any rain barrels. I feel great. I will be exercising soon. I am just enjoying the rain on my back porch. I just love sitting, watching the rain and smelling the rain. Every one have a wonderful day and weekend. I will be walking all weekend. keep smiling and get some movement in. I am getting back on my food plan. I have problems on holidays and birthdays and when I vacation. When I socialize I do not seem to be able to stick to a plan unless it is only my DH and me. I have decided to not be so hard on myself. Every one enjoy your families and keep movement. Have a picnic and get some movement in with lawn games.
Good Morning; I did not exercise yesterday. I was in too much turmoil. I have done much soul searching. I had to turn my son over to God. I understand he is having a really tough time. I would love to help him but he refuses to let me in except as a sounding board. I have to accept this, but I need to keep my life focused on my health program. As every mother knows, we forget ourselves when our family is in need. I start eating poorly and forget to exercise. It is so ingrained that I do not realise it until I am in a full blown program. I love my son greatly but he can be a great deal of stress and I need to let go at times. He has chosen a difficult career when he had other choices. Life is not always fair and his injury is his injury. He can ask for advice but I do not understand the Army process. He has never wanted our family involved with his military life. I have to believe that our country would not let a good soldier down. I am back and will exercise today and eat well. Love you all for all your support. You are all special and I am grateful for all your support.
Good Morning- I am trying to keep calm. I have been working with my son since early this morning on the phone. Some one told him that he is heading to being kicked out of the Army due to his back injury. He was going to get shots for his back, but his appt is in October so he is still in severe pain. He was so upset. He loves the Army. He is also in the middle of a major inspection. He has no problems with what the Army expects of him. I also know he would not be so upset if he was not in so much pain. Needless to say, I have not exercised yet. I have not eaten yet. I just lost my appetite with hearing my son in such turmoil. He was bearing the pain yesterday, but today he is overwhelmed. I have been there. I had back surgery years ago. I hope my prayers get answered soon and he gets some pain relief. Not even 2 weeks ago he was going in front of the promotion board and saved one of his men life from a medical reaction. Does any one have any advice for me? I do not know how to comfort my son. I definitely do not understand the Army.
