Rough Week

Saturday, May 18, 2013

What a week this has been. DH hasnít been feeling good and neither have I (he feels worse). Wed. he was in a car accident. Fortunately no one was hurt. The policeman thought our 97 jeep was totaled. Thurs. I took him to the Dr. and found out he has strep throat. They put him on anti-biotics and he is starting to feel a little better. I thought people our age didnít get strep smile.

We are supposed to go see our son and family in Nebraska for Memorial Day. He should be feeling pretty good by then.

    Yvonne,
I certainly hope you and your hubby are both better and in Nebraska right now. I'm glad no one was hurt in the accident. Jeeps are pretty tough vehicles we have owned several of them. Right now we own a 2009 Wrangler Rubicon that we absolutely love.

I hope you have a great holiday weekend and a much better week next week.

Patty

    Sorry to hear you haven't had a good week Yvonne. And yes, we seniors can still get strep throat and it's an awful thing to have! I hope your husband gets over it quickly.

We had a bad week here too and it still isn't going very well. Hubby was in hospital a few days but came home about the same as he went in. He did get some relief up there though, with morphine for his pain. But he still is unable to sleep at night and that turns our days all around!

Ah well, this too shall pass!

Good Morning

Saturday, May 11, 2013

Good morning. What a beautiful day it is today. Today would be beautiful no matter what the weather is outside. Why??? Today is the start of another 5% challenge and I'm rarin to go. It has been exactly 4 weeks since the last challenge ended and I have lost 0.4 pounds since then. For the time in between challenges, I try to maintain. I think that is good practice for when I reach my goal weight.

Exercise and Freggies

Monday, April 15, 2013

The shingles have really sapped my energy. I think I am pretty much over them. I have tried to walk 25-40 minutes the last week. Today I walked 30 minutes and was exhausted. I feel like I should be able to do that at 74 and am not looking forward to trying to get back in shape. I think I will try to break my exercise up into 2 sessions a day.

That is enough of that. This week on our Daisy challenge we are supposed to try to eat 5-9 servings of freggies. So far I have eaten 5 for 2 days and 4 for one day. Yay for me!!! I think I may be eating too much fruit. On the Daily Nutrition Feedback, the graph where it says we should be eating carbs for half our daily carb/fat/protein breakdown, I have been eating about 3/4's of total in carbs. I guess I need to cut back on the fruit and increase my veggies.

Some day I may get this figured out lol. emoticon

    I like the shorter Fitness session idea! A little bit, spaced throughout the day! Good plan! May God renew your strength soon!

    emoticon It is a process (figuring it out); never ending I suspect. Sounds like you are doing great to me. I'm sorry you've been dealing with the shingles, I somehow missed that. Glad you are on the mend. Regardless, I've found spacing my exercise out in 10-12 minute sessions throughout the day has been very beneficial. I think it's keeping my metabolism rev'd up. Of course I have longer sessions when in yoga class or gardening and on Sugar walks. But those 10 minute sessions early in the day get me going. Be well.

Busy Fun Week

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Looking forward to another busy week. Yesterday I had a wonderful Daisy Day. Thanks everyone.

We went to Red Lobster for dinner and then to the Community Concert. It was A Tribute to John Denver. He looked and sounded a lot like John Denver. It was a fun evening.

Today a friend is taking me out to lunch for my birthday. We will celebrate with family on Thursday evening.

Went to the gym yesterday. Did the bike, treadmill and then did some weights. Will go again tomorrow and either Friday or Saturday. In between we will just walk.

Have to work on the office in between times. Somehow it is a catchall for everything. It needs a good cleaning and getting rid of "stuff". Love all this sunshine we have been getting. It is giving me spring cleaning fever. DH loves that!

Need some emoticons for spring cleaning lol.

Day 6

Thursday, March 07, 2013

6) Do you need some motivation or advice? Ask for it!

Thankfully eating and exercise are going better than they have since the end of the last challenge.

I just got back from a 2 mile walk OUTSIDE. It is 64 degrees and beautiful out. The sun is shining and it felt so good. Life is good.
