To be honest, all I did today was go to the grocery store, 3 loads of laundry, finished a cross stitch project, cleaned the kitchen & cooked again. Which means I will be doing double exercises tomorrow.
I did manage to get down my 8 cups of water though.

Since I was lazy yesterday and didn't do anything, I made up for it today. Today is our weekend here, like Saturday in the real world. I did get up and do my 30 minute walk, I did the Wednesday and Thursday boot camp workout videos and the bonus exercise. It felt good to exercise
So now the drs. tell me I have gout and the diabetic nutritionist I went to last night told me I need a Low Purine diet which means cutting more stuff out of my diet now. So I guess I can eat lettuce, tomato, cucumber, a small apple, 1/2 a banana, 1/3 cup rice. Let's not forget yogurt, laban, lebneh.(the last two are SAudi foods) I was reading about gout, I do not have sore, inflamed joints but I have too much protien in my urine. UGH!
Getting old SUCKS!

I'm a day late with thie but the bonus challenge from Wednesday was:
Your Bonus Challenge for Wednesday (optional) is to create a new blog entry on your SparkPage. You can use this time to discuss your recent progress with Bootcamp in general, or delve into a topic or issue that has been hurting your progress, so you can try to come up with some solutions to stay on track. Use this entry to your advantage, whether you need to vent (instead of turning to food to stifle your feelings), come up with a new schedule for your workouts (so that you'll do them instead of putting them off), or rediscover your motivation for doing the Bootcamp
So here is my vent, discussion or whatever. Nothing is happening. I have lost 1/4 of an ince on my waist, nothing anywhere else. My scales say one thing, the ones at the drs say another. My scales say 143, the dr says 66.7 kilos, not the same, but then I went at 5PM in the evening, after eating breakfast, lunch and drinking water. I just have to keep trying.

I know I should say something about the presidential inaugration yesterday, but it is an event that takes place every 4 years, do it and get on with it. I personally don't need the circus act that goes with it.
I woke up sore and stiff this morning, my neck & shoulders are sore, probably from doing too much exercise the past couple days. I didn't walk this morning either. Today will be a bad day for me. IT's the start of the weekend too, Wednesday here is like Friday in the real world.
Took Spot kitty to the vets last night, he has a cavity in a tooth so they will fix it today and we can pick him up tonight.
I also have an appointment with a diabetic nutritionist tonight so I am trying to get all my Spark pages together to show her/him along with my weekly menus and information I do have from various American web sites. We'll see what she/he says. I feel like a need a suitcase to take all this information around in. I know I need to take all my medication, my test kit, blood work paper work, reading material and someting to stitch while I'm waiting, LOL.
That's my exciting day in a nutshell.
I did stitch last night too, almost got my little project done.

Thank you for your wishes for my daughter. I will call her later when she wakes up. She has to get my grandson off to school and I don't know if she has to work today or not.
I did a 47 minute 2 mile walk this morning with about 30 second jog in there, woo hoo! I'm impressed I could do that!
I did the Day 17 dumb bell work out video then did some extra exercises from another team I am on. It does feel good to be able to do these exercises without getting winded after 2 minutes. I do feel like I make progress even though nothing shows.
Gotta take Furbaby Spot cat to the vets today, his breath stinks and he's just not himself lately. Hopefully he just needs his teeth cleaned. This kitty is DH's B-A-B-Y and he would be lost with out Spot.
