Levi's first Easter and a great time with family

Sunday, April 08, 2012

I had a wonderful weekend with Aaron and Amber and Levi. I drove down yesterday afternoon and spent the night.

Today, Mom and Larry, Brandon and Lisa, Amber's parents, sister and her family, brother and her Grandpa came down to spend the afternoon and have dinner. We missed Emily and Meggie. Em had to work and Meghan is still on Spring Break in California until tomorrow night. We had a great time together and the food Amber made was awesome. She made quite a few Weight Watcher recipes since she's doing that now and Mom bought a ham.

I made Levi a basket with healthy organic baby food:




I got him a basket ball hoop and a ball to play on the floor with:



Here's Mom's ham. Love how she put the pineapple in the middle of the platter:



Here's Great Grandma and Gigi with Levi :-)



Lisa's the family animal lover and we could hardly keep her out of the dog pen, lol. Aaron and Amber have 5 week old huskie puppies



Brandon held Levi while Lisa held puppies:





Here's Levi in Great Grandma's bunny ears:



Here's the flower I got for Mom



We had an awesome day, but it's time to go home!

Happy Easter and Happy Passover!!

    What a great blog and pictures. The things you got Levi were really nice. We had a wonderful time with all of our family and also with Amber's. I sure missed Emily, Joey and Meghan not being there. I am so happy that we had this family time together today. I really wish I had remembered to bring my flower basket home.

My first half marathon- Rock 'n' Roll DC

Friday, March 30, 2012

This is the vision board I made last year. My biggest goal was to complete the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon with a group of SparkPeople friends.



I had many obstacles during the time I should have been training. Several months before I had a back injury, a month before I developed hypertension and my readings were so high I was literally scared to do anything fitness wise except some walking. The week before and the week of, I had a large abscess on my thigh that required draining and 3 strong antibiotics to heal it. Several days before the half I developed a post injection sciatica and had excruciating pain in my left hip area, radiating down my leg thigh. Fortunately I had no pain when walking, the pain was only with bending, twisting, trying to put on shoes/socks/tie shoes, get up and down from sitting to standing and getting in/out of the car.

I was determined to make it through the race, hoping that the pain would not make an appearance while walking. My original plan was to do walk/run intervals but with the lack of training and the issues of that week, I could only manage walking.

The night before, a small group of us met at Bond 45 at the National Harbor for a pre race dinner. It was the first time some of had met. It was such a great night and I was happy to meet the ones I hadn't met before. Here we are:



and here's Jillian about to devour her dessert :-)



She had picked up my race bag for me. We got a cool shirt, a bag and some coupons and GU.



This is my first HM race bib:



The morning of, my co-worker Katina and I met up with Amy and we rode into the race together. The metro was crazy crowded and with train issues we got to the start after the starting time. Meghan went with us because she was super excited to see the headliner band, Switch Foot.



Once there, she decided to see if they needed another volunteer. She kept very busy and got a cool bag and shirt for helping out:







Katina and I were in the last corral but we had to go to the bathroom after the long ride in. The lines were long and before we got a chance to go someone came up and said if we weren't in our corral by the time it was time to take off, that the gate would be closed and we wouldn't be permitted to participate. Off we went to get in the corral figuring we'd find another port-a-potty to stop at in a little bit. We got up closer to the start and ran to a short line of people waiting to use the potty. When we came out, they were closing the gate and we literally had to run and squeeze ourselves in.



Amy determined that my Garmin had frozen and I was unable to use it for the race-the first race it was to be used :-( I loaded RunKeeper on my phone and used that instead.

Off we went, at the very end of the large group of people, we started our quest to finish the 13.1 miles.



By the 5K mark, we were wishing we had signed up for a 5K :-) We continued on, walking quite fast at times and quite slow at other times. By the time we got to the 6-8 mile mark there were some pretty decent hills. At one hill I zipped up and got to the top and realized Katina wasn't with me. I ran back down the hill to get her, looped my arm in hers and got her to the top of the hill. The bands along the course kept me moving, although there weren't nearly as many as advertised on the half course). We hit the 10 mile mark, stating we only had a 5K left! The entire time we were literally in a close distance to the pick up bus, with it never out of our site. I needed to use the bathroom, but I couldn't stop or I'd be on the bus. Being on the streets of DC, there was a strict time limit you had to stay within or you'd be picked up by the bus/van. My only goals were to finish and to stay off the bus. I had a sudden burst of energy and got ahead of Katina, meeting up with a lovely lady participating with Team in Training and Katina met up with another lady from the same group. At one point I turned around and Katina and her new friend were gone and on the bus. I had a fleeting thought of how I'd really enjoy a break of riding, but I trudged on. A mile or so later, there was Katina and her friend in front of us. The bus had dropped them off further down the course and they were now in front of me. I ran up to them and walked with them for a bit and then I took off again, trying desperately to beat the time limit.

Once I could see the finish line I was so excited, but so tired. I've only done 5K's and a few 10K's and I always sprinted to the finish line. I had no energy to do so this time. All I could think of was crossing that line still standing, LOL. I was wearing a tweety bird shirt and as I approached the finish, the announcer announced my name and then said "here comes Tweety, I thawt I saw a puddy tat", telling me to smile for the camera. I barely remember trying to smile, literally having not an ounce of energy to do so. I crossed that line with pride though! I'd completed a half marathon! I didn't run it like I had planned and I had a lot of obstacles leading up to it, but I finished nonetheless! 13.1 miles. I don't care that I walked 99.9% of it, I had done it and can only go up from here! My official time was 4:01, but I'm still proud of myself for going and finishing!

Here we are after some post race goodies and a little more energy:



and here is my first medal:


I carry it around with me still, LOL......

I learned a lot about myself during this experience. Mostly that I am capable of a lot more than I give myself credit for. I can't wait for next year when hopefully I will be able to complete a training program and finish with a much better time.

I'm back in the game

Monday, March 05, 2012

I've had a rough year so far. I hurt my back around Christmas and a large part of January I wasn't able to do the things I had been doing fitness wise. Then in February I developed high blood pressure and got started on medication. That was a bummer, especially since I had made such great changes in my life and always had perfectly normal BP when I ate crap, weighed 50 lbs more and rarely exercised. After 2+ weeks on the med, I'm finally getting good BP readings again. Today was 104/68 :-)

I had been scared to do more than walk when I was getting readings in the upper 180's/120's. My gym membership just sat. Now I feel ready to get back in the game. I went to the gym last night and was there for 2 hours. It felt great!

I have my first half marathon in less than 2 weeks! Yikes...am I ever far behind in training with being basically out of commission from part of December til March. My plan was to do walk/run intervals, which I hope to still do, but my time will be drastically slower with not being able to get ready for it like I had planned. I'm not letting it get me down though...I will get through it with my good friend and co-worker by my side and we will cross that finish line one way or another :-) I'm so excited to do this with some friends from my Fabulous Fitness FB team. Hope they don't forget Katina and I since they will likely all finish 1.5-2 hrs before we do, LOL.

I am Grandma...of puppies!

Saturday, March 03, 2012

I got a frantic call from my daughter in law early this afternoon. Her female Husky, was panting a lot and looked like she was getting ready to have her puppies. Amber was home alone with Levi and hasn't been around puppies, so Ambers Mom and I went over to help.

So far Bayleigh did great and has 4 little Huskies!



More updates later once I see how many she has :-)

UPDATE:
Here's a few more pics. Now she has 6

A disturbing day

Friday, February 10, 2012

I have always had normal blood pressure. Even before losing almost 50 lbs, eating healthier and exercising, my blood pressure was always in the normal range and even at the lower end of normal range. I was shocked to find it elevated at my doctors appt yesterday. It was 150/91 there. She said maybe it was just a fluke, so she asked me to have it taken at work on a regular basis and bring her the readings back in two weeks to see if I need to start BP meds. I had it taken at work yesterday afternoon and it was 150/96. Then at the pharmacy last evening, it was 162/92. So, unless yesterday was just an unusual day for some reason, it was high every time I had it taken. I will continue to monitor it and hope it returns to normal. I hate the thought of starting a medication for high BP, but will if I need to of course. There's not a lot I can do to eat better and get more exercise. I also track my sodium and most days I am well under the recommended amount.

Meghan also had her f/up appt. She's been having an elevated pulse rate and a lot of shakiness in her hands. Her pulse rate has been elevated at home, but yesterday it was quite elevated. They had her rest and retook it and it was still really up there. They did an EKG which was normal, except for the tachycardia. Her doc was worried enough about it that she started her on a beta blocker to bring it down and said it was almost to a level where she would admit her to the hospital. Her BP was also elevated for her age, and one of her meds, while not rx'd for increased BP, lowers BP as a side effect. Even with adding that last month and decreasing another med last month that can elevate your heart rate, she is still too elevated on both. We will see how she does this month with the changes.

Today, my 23 year old son is having an echocardiogram and stress test. He is not overweight and is seemingly healthy otherwise. He plays ice hockey on a league and is quite active. He had back surgery last month for a herniated disc and his routine preop EKG was abnormal. His PCP sent him to a cardiologist for evaluation. It was still abnormal there, hence the tests later today. Hopefully those will be normal.

Here it is heart health month and 3 of us are having non healthy heart issues! Just a reminder to continue to eat well and exercise on a regular basis. A healthy heart is pretty important!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

UPDATE: Aaron's echo and stress stress were 100% normal! Looks like he is one of the 5% of the population that have a bundle branch block that is normal. The doc gave him a copy of his EKG on a small card and said to carry it in his wallet so if he ever has an accident or illness and is seen by EMT's and/or ER people, they will know it's normal for him and not an issue that needs to be investigated. His blood pressure was more elevated than normal for the testing parameters during the stress test, but the doc thought it was due to the pain from his recent surgery and not an issue. Has a follow up in one month to check it once he's more healed.

    My doctor had me buy a wrist BP monitor. Omron is one of the better ones. I keep track of my BP and take it with me when I go to see the doctor so he can see what I have been running and also to compare it with his that day so he can see that it is accurate. Mine always runs higher in the office because of 'white coat' syndrome. I get nervous about being in the doctor's office and it is always higher. But by tracking it at home, he can see that it is usually normal. I do take BP medicine and it keeps it under control. So maybe that is part of the problem with you. And even though it was high at work and at the pharmacy, it could be because you were nervous about what it was at the doctor's office. I would suggest getting the wrist monitor and keeping track of it at home.
Just a suggestion.

    My gosh - that IS a lot to handle all at once. When I was younger, my BP was consistently 100/50, and now it's more like 120-30/80. My Dr. says that it's fine now, but that some people just get High BP as they age, no matter how otherwise healthy they are. And since both Mom and Dad have had age-related BP issues, he said to expect that at some time in the future, I'll likely have to take meds too (but I'm hoping to put that off for as long as possible:)).

So, I hope this is either easily remediable, or just one of those "normal aging" things.

Good luck!

    Wow, that is something that all three of you are having issues with your heart this month.I am so glad you are up on things. Look a little more closely at the food/drinks you are having. DH was drinking tea that had ginseng in it and his BP went high. Then he had some herbal tea with licerous root in it and the same thing happened. Who knows this stuff is going to happen.
I am sure you tried things like yoga & meditation to relax you and bring your BP back to normal.
Praying for you and your family that health issues will soon be resolved in a positive way.

You know I have all of you in my prayers for everything to be okay. Maybe Brandon and Emily should be checked too......just for the heck of it and to see if they may have a problem.

    WOW... all three of you???? Is this genetic? or could there be something environmental???

I've found that if I exercise in the AM, my BP can be high following it. If you can, skip exercise in the morning, and try to measure then.

(last comment, based on what affects my BP, not medically endorsed... make sure you are well hydrated, with all minerals. Try drinking some coconut water, or gatorade. I found that when I had been exercising lots, and drinking only water, my BP went up. Once I added in gatorade, it went back down to normal)

Good luck! This can be very, very scary!
