AAAhhhhh, that walk felt GREAT!

Wednesday, June 03, 2009

My first outside walk since being HOME and it was SO good! My pace sure has picked up since last year, and I didn't get the least bit out of breath on the small hills on the road. I ended up walking 3.30 miles according to the SparkPeople route tracker but since I have NO idea exactly how far I walked since the house numbers don't show up on any map and they satellite version of the map is nothing but trees and relates to nothing on this road, I'll agree.
It was a very nice 60F this morning an smelled so fresh.
I finally got my contacts back in and it feels much better. I just hate wearing my glasses. I'll keep my old pair in for a few days to see if they've straightened out.

Now back to cleaning and sorting.

Finally back to my exercise

Tuesday, June 02, 2009

It flet good today to get vack to my exercise. I got in 30 minutes of WATP, 1 dimbbell workout and an abs workout.

Had an eye appt today which went well. She said my eyes were fine and not a whole lot of a change since I started taking the thyroid and the diabetes pills. She did give me a couple pairs of contacts to try.

I am still trying to adjust here.

    It is always great to get back to the exercise when you have to take a break, isn't it???
Must be tough adjusting twice a year to 2 such totally different places!

    I wish I could use contact lenses. I don't have the money for it though. There's a new treatment where you wear these contact lenses at night and it adjusts your eyes while you sleep and the next day you don't have to wear contact lenses or glasses. It corrects them overnight but you have to wear them while you sleep. Its called CPT or something like that. Its new to eye Dr. check it out.

I need to get back on track

Sunday, May 31, 2009

I'm still jet lagging but getting better. Now that I am alone here I can get straightened out with exercise and eating.

I got my new car on Friday so I feel much less stressed about going anywhere because I know the car will run and won't break down. My son got our old jeep.

I have weighed my self since I've been home and now I have to re adjust my ticker. the scales here have read 141 all 3 times I got on it and it's a digital one.
It sure was a challenge doing the grocery shopping last week. Everything here is so expensive, espically the fruits and vegetables! WOW! But I am so glad that SparkPeople is here to help me along the way.

    Glad you are back safe and sound and are getting adjusted (and with wheels!). No more sleeping through Yankee games! (or at least not as many - if you are like me, you still may nod off through one or two).

    I'm so glad you have a car to run around in. Yes isn't the price of fruits and vegetables atrocious. Have you tried the farmer's Market? It may be cheaper there. Give it some time you'll get in the groove yet.

Honey, I'm HOME!

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

YAY YAY! I love being home.
I made it home safe and sound, all flights were on time, all luggage arrived at the same time as I did and unopened, nothing missing or broken. I got my cardio workout walking between plane terminals dragging luggage, then walking fast to get to the connection, then wandering around waiting for the bus.
It's so good to hug my son & grandson too!
Now to stay up past 9:30PM and sleep past 4AM would be GREAT.
It's also cold here, in the 30's in the boonie mountains and it's supposed to rain all this week of course!
Got my driver's license renewed, picked up my mail, went grocery shopping and got HEALTHY food. Now to keep going.

Hopefully I'll get back to SPARKING real soon!

    Welcome Home! Glad to hear you arrived safely. I was checking in just to see if you had logged in in US time. My days at work have been very busy so I'm a little behind on everyone, but I'm very glad to catch up with you and see you are HOME. My sister and her husband flew to NH on Tuesday, but they will be in Portsmouth with my brother and his wife. emoticon That's me being just a little bit jealous. I have never been to NH. Have a great time relaxing with family.

    Hurray!!! now all you have to do is get adjusted to the time change. You must feel good to be home again. I bet it will be better when your DH is with you. You appreciate your family more as a result of being away from them so much. I imagine they appreciate you more too

Am I there yet?

Sunday, May 24, 2009

It's 7:30AM local time here in SAudi, 12:30AM New Hampshire time Sunday morning. IT's going to be a loooooooooong day. I probably won't leave for the airport until 10PM, the flight leaves at 0210AM Local time, 7:10PM USA time. The flight is 12 hours 50 minutes, I should land on US soil at 8AM New York time.

I did get in my exercise yesterday, 2 miles WATP video and Bootcamp video of the day.
Today will be up and down stairs, back and forth, tonight will be walking around the terminal, does that count as exercise? Pacing?

Unless there are free internet kiosks at the airport in the USA, I probably won't be back online until Tuesday evening. I'll miss my monday Sparking!
See ya'll in the REAL WORLD soon!
