A wasted day

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

I didn't do much today, cleaned up, fought with the stupid vacuum again but finally got it fixed and got a workout vacuuming the living room, dining room and hallway. Then more back and forth cleaning.
Wednesdays are the start of our weekend here, like Friday in the real world. He goes to a friends house for a couple hours in the evening and they usually get take out food of some sort. Tonight he went to Burger King and got me a Whopper jr. chicken sandwich. It was ok and I guess it really wasn't as bad for me as a real whopper would have been.

Last night I was so tired of sneezing and my nose was so sore from blowing and blowing so I took an Actifed. Not even an hour later I started feeling so woozy and wobbly. I laid down on the couch and fell asleep. The time was 8:30. I got up around 9:30 and went to bed, didn't wake up until 9AM this morning. Guess I won't be taking that again but at least I quit sneezing and blowing my nose.

    Maybe the extra sleep is what you need to get back on Saudi time. Maybe you'll be able to get out and walk before the day gets too warm!

    At least you found something to help you sleep, if you need it.

Another full workout

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

I'm getting better again at getting the job done. I'm still only at the 2 1/2 mile Walk Away The Pounds pace which depending on which video I do can be between 35-45 minutes then I go to a bootcamp video alternating days of upper body, core and lower body then I do some extra stretches or exercises. Depending on how I feel, I'll give the manual treadmill a spin for 5-10 mintues. I've been doing this for a week now along with the 8 cups of water a day. I haven't lost any weight but I have lost 3/4 of an inch around my waist and hips. Whopee!

I was able to sit down and get in an hour of stitching today too along with bathroom cleaning. Exciting life, eh?

    Congratulations on a job well done. (And where would we be without clean bathrooms?)

A good workout today

Monday, November 09, 2009

My back seems to be a lot better but I do have a stopping point. Today I did a 2 1/2 mile Walk Away The Pounds video working the lower body & core. That was a great workout mixed with high intensity moves. Then I did 2 boot camp videos working the core and lower body again. I can feel that I did a good job today.

Still drinking my 8 cups/2 litres of water a day. It's not really easier but I do notice that my blood sugar levels are down since drinking all that water. I have stopped going to the bathroom as much at night too.

I also started another cross stitch project last night. This one is for Thanksgiving called Give Thanks.

    Sounds like you are really busy. When do you find the time to cross stitch?

    I'm so glad you're drinking the water and drinking more than you used to. I also could tell that my BS were down when I drank a lot of water. I try to stay away from soda, coffee, and tea. Good job, Robin.

Feeling better today

Saturday, November 07, 2009

What a miserable couple of days! I was fine on Thursday. Went grocery shopping, did a few things around the house, DH went and got Indian food for dinner. I knew I would have to go to the bathroom a lot after dinner because of the grease in the food which is something I don't eat on a daily basis. Somewhere in the middle of the night I didn't feel right. I slept curled up under the blanket which is rare for me, I felt feverish, I ached all over, my sinuses were clogged and I kept going to the bathroom. I couldn't get comfortable no matter how I slept.
I laid down on the couch about 6AM and still couldn't get comfortable. My back hurt like crazy, I could hardle move. DH took my temp and it was 99.5, not real high. No stomach ache, I could pee normal, no pain except severe back pain and achy all over. I felt a little better after taking Excedrine. I tried to eat some chicken soup and crackers, broth and fruit but mostly slept.
I slept for almost 12 hours Friday night on the couch. Saturday the ache was gone, the sinuses had drained but my back pain hurt so bad. the Excedrine & Tylneol didn't do much and I had limited range of motion. I checked web sites for Swine flu symptoms and didn't have that, checked for kidney stones and didn't have any symptoms of that so we narrowed it down to a severely pulled muscle from exercising on Wednesday.

Today I feel better, I can move without pain and I can walk normal.

I've been on track with 8 cups of water a day for over a week now and I've been back in this miserable place for 3 weeks now. I still need to get my sleep schedule back on track so I feel awake enough to walk outside by 8:30AM.

    It sounds like you might have had 2 different things going on. The back ache may be independent of the stomach discomfort and overall achyness. Maybe the latter was part of a 24-hour bug. Hope the back continues to improve, so you can get back to exercise pain-free.

You're doing great with the water! Keep it up.

    I am still on Cloud Nine but am going through withdrawal - miss the games and just the general news on the players, etc... I am not ready for the Hot Stove topics, because, frankly, I don't want our team to change!
