I must have alot of days described in my title..as it comes to mind to use it often.
I try to stop and count my blessing. I have a wonderful family. Everyone is healthy and happy at the moment. I am blessed to have my mother around this mothers day as it was almost a year ago she was diagnosed with a very bad and aggressive cancer. Thank you, God!
I have been eating well, mostly..even through Easter yummies.
I have been exercising as well as I can...at least consistantly, even though I have had no car, no stroller and no babysitter. I am stuck with the elliptical, but HGTV gets me through that. LOL
The bad. Well..I have been frustrated so easily with DH, my perfect grands and my imperfections. Have not been my own best friend, lately.
The ugly...well...I guess just more of the bad...fighting the depression, but not sure why..maybe just need to e able to go for a walk outside.
THE BEST. I am almost back to a healthy BMI! And I am able to reduce one of my diabetes pills again. I will monitor it for 30 days and then see the doc to see if I can keep it gone. I am very excited about that. The real payoff of exercise.
Thanks for listening.

OK...Just got back from a week long, not particularly pleasant trip. It was for a funeral to begin with, my mother is not doing well..and I stress ate and had no chances to exercise.
But I am back...and I am going to have a good week...of eating, exercising and sparking. I am!
I think I have finally decided to try to take up some level of running. I had dinner with my college room mate (it has been decades) and she is running. It inspired me so I am going to give it a shot. I have one bad toe, so it might not be something I can do, but never hurts to try.
Glad to be back...it seems like months instead of one week.

i am wanting to try and grow a few vegetables on my deck. I could only afford 2 large pots at this time and would like to know how to use that space best. Foods I enjoy are spinach, onions, baby carrots, tomatoes, and lettuces. (those are ones that I hear work fine in pots) Can anyone tell me your opinion on what works well and what items I could plant together. I am open to other things to grow, too. I like almost all veggies. Oooh and strawberries..love them.
THis is all new to me.

Well..possibly. I have been pouting over my husbands seeming lack of support. I guess I really seek his approval for this journey. Need his encouragement, etc. I have told him repeatedly of my goal to walk the walk for breast cancer. He listens, nods, but doesn't respond when I ask about us registering me. I take this as a sign that he isn't all for it. I have hinted, asked, showed deals at gyms, which I am really wanting to join. He nods, asks the price, says "we need to get a car. This is something that is important to me but I don't want to be the cause of a financial burden. He worries about money a lot and I don't want to add to that worry.
Don't misunderstand me, my husband isn't some kind of ogre. He just isn't interested in fitness and health issues very much. He is pretty consumed by work and our church.
I just really want to join. There is a new YMCA express just a few minutes away. We are not poor. We have some debt but I don't have personal income. I spend a lot on other things, (like grandchildren, and cheap travelling...so I am not sure if I am being unreasonable by asking. LIke I said..he worries about money a lot...maybe I don't worry enough.
Does anyone know of places where you can work out with weights for free? I don't really have room to store weights.
