Day 23 of 28 Day Bootcamp!

Friday, March 08, 2013

I'm almost there. I did 2 SP lower body blast videos. Now, it's off to get in my cardio. I wanted to do the stairs but after all those lunges I'm not sure if my legs will cooperate. I will get in at least 5 miles.

Tomorrow is the road trip. It will be interesting how I will manage to get the workout in with driving and visiting. I'll figure it out! I have two of my grandchildren going. They will keep me busy!

My mom wants a Fitbit! I can't wait to see her & Alvin. Please keep him in your prayers. Some days are better then others.

Hugs,

Karen

I did the SP core workout. My bonus was the SP belly blaster cardio workout. Now I'm working on my 5 miles!

My doctor's office got back to me & scheduled enough time for me to go over my current meds & there side effects.

Have a wonderful evening!

Day 20 of 28 Day Bootcamp!

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

I completed SP arm workout. My bonus was the 8 minute SP upper body workout. My arms will feel it tomorrow. My cardio will be a minimum of 5 miles walk/jog. I wanted to do the stairs at the highschool but it's raining outside and they get slippery. So, I'll run in place while watching tv. I can remember when I couldn't jog in place through one commercial!

The doctor told my mom Alvin is having ongoing strokes. Isn't there something they can give him to stop them? He was able to talk today. He was concerned about us driving through the pass. It should be clear this weekend.

A couple of my good friends didn't survive the layoff cuts. Their last day is the end of this month. My workload is insane. I didn't have enough time to eat lunch again today. I got called into a last minute meeting with minimal time to prepare. The workouts are wonderful for the stress. I get the tension out with every breath.

I contacted my doctor to discuss what my cardiologist & pharmacist said about my Carvedilol medication & some of the side effects. I also saw a disturbing attorney commercial regarding another medication I take which is Losartan. We will address all 7 prescriptions at my next appt on the 14th.

I'm so exhausted I think I fall asleep before my head hits the pillow. I'm grateful for that & for the support of my SP friends & family♡ Thank you!

    I am glad you are reviewing your meds. I personally would love to get off my blood pressure meds but the Doc seems reluctant. I guess I will have to monitor for a couple of weeks before my Nov. appt. so I can convince her. I hope that Alvin can be helped. He is in my prayers. emoticon

Day 19 of 28 Day Bootcamp!

Monday, March 04, 2013

Completed SP Lean Leg workout. Bonus was SP 8 minute interval cardio workout. I also got in 5 miles.

Work was so busy I didn't get a chance to eat lunch. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

My oldest son Chris came over for a nice visit. After my son's visit, my daughter Amber & daughter-in-law Natasha and I got in 5 miles. Then, I got in my SP bootcamp videos. Now, I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to get my old body off the floor! Just kidding!

I'm grateful this body can do what it's been doing. I have more energy then I've had in a long time. I sleep well.

Two of my kids and their families are going with us to visit Alvin and my mom this weekend for his birthday. I've got to make reservations for the hotel. Mom said Alvin wasn't looking well today. He's having days where he can speak and if assisted can even walk. Today, he could do neither. I don't know if it's the medication he's taking or the impact of the stroke. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.

God bless,

Karen

    It sounds like you don't have anything old on you! You run circles around many of those people who are half your age. I keep telling myself if you can do it, so can I since I too am a grandma but I fear I am starting from so far behind you. You are amazing!
