Well, I broke down and got a Fitbit after thinking about it for a long time. I have tried this week to use my cellphone to track my steps and it has gone well...for the most part. Now ask how many times I've misplaced my phone. I tried wearing it around my neck, carrying it, etc. but it was really a hassle. DH saw how committed I was at counting my steps, and I guess he felt sorry for me so I got an "early" Christmas gift. Counting steps has encouraged me to walk "up the hill" almost daily in our neighborhood. It adds up quickly.
I have been pretty good about going to the gym to use the treadmill and the machines but it's boring. Often the gym is crowded with people who want the news blaring or they have classical music playing. I like classical music but it's NOT good to work out to IMHO unless I'm doing yoga. Now that the weather is a little cooler in FL, I want to walk outside. Yea, I have a Fitbit now!!

Well, I have been counting down the hours today until I go to the airport. DH arrives this evening after a long 4 months of being on a ship near Japan.
Tried to clean a little to pass the time, but ended up making a mess when a "just watered" plant's tray broke spilling dirty plant water all over the table and the rug. I know he won't even noticed any dirt or clutter so why am I doing this?? Oh, yeah, it's to pass the time.
After I pick him up, we're going to Carrabas for dinner so I'll be bringing 1/2 of mine home altho I've factored in those calories in my daily allowance. I never have room for dessert so that won't be a problem.
I know, I'll leave early, take a book, and wait at the airport which will most likely guarantee his plane will be late. Pessimistic? Not me.

I'm not much of a blogger which should be evident by now because I've never really felt like I had that much to say that anyone would want to read. Don't get me wrong, I love to read others' blogs but mine, well, not so much. Anyway, I felt the need to write because I feel guilty that I was so happy & relieved yesterday about my "all-clear" mammogram. Yes, it sounds silly even to me, but my sister is still battling an aggressive, rare GYN cancer and has had to be hospitalized across the country. No other details because I AM HERE not there giving her support. And so, I just ate two servings of gingersnaps which helped neither of us.

2010 was NOT a good year. Fractured my arm in May one day before my husband came home from a 5 month deployment so our summer was spent going to PT. Then he had to have surgery before he could go back to sea. Holidays & our birthdays were spent apart. My youngest sister went into hospice and is now in clinical trials. Wow. Next year will be better, won't it??
On the "up side", I believe my arm is actually stronger now and I'm back to full weight-bearing on it during yoga & strength exercises. Even with a plate in my arm, I didn't set off any alarms at the airports when I went to visit my DS in FL. My sister actually had a very nice Christmas with her DD in UT even tho she was supposed to be failing rapidly. She seems to be beating some predictions. I have a comfortable roof over my head, food in my frig., and the best friends in the world so with that, I will look ahead to 2011 with hope.
