Man was my face red!

Thursday, June 28, 2012

I was at the VA medical center with DH and was hit on by 3 older men!!I got so embarrassed that,I went to the restroom and left my glasses on the sink.After much searching and coming up empty,I was told that maybe someone turned them in.Sooooo,back to square one.I returned to all the stations we had been asking and nobody had them.Finally I asked security if there was a lost and found and I had lost my glasses.Maam,he replied someone just turned them in at the front information desk.I almost ran to get my glasses when a man asked was I single!!!NO!!!I was hot,tired of running back and forth and red in the face from all the gentlemen!!HAHAHA!My husband asked why my face was red and I just laughed!!It's hot I replied! emoticonSUSAN

The heat is on!

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

At 6:30 this morning it was already HOT!The dog had to be pushed out the door to pee and my skin was clammy.The AC went out in my car yesterday and the tech cant get to it till Friday.I made my walk in the park with Bryan but he wasnt into it and called for his van ride.My Daughter met me and we walked together.We talked and laughed until time to go and my smile was worth the sweat,we were soaked but felt good!Im about to embark on a trip to the dentist w/o AC!!It's already 103 emoticonSUSAN

    Susan, you keep amazing me! We have a heat advisory and pollution alert, so I plan to walk later this evening. I'm glad you are doing well. Come back and see us on Baby Steps - we miss you!

    WOW! I believe it is great that you got the walk in even with the heat. We are supposed to be under a heat advisory starting tomorrow for at least three days. I will use you as an incentive to get out there and get things done.
God bless

    Wish I was there, it's rather fresh here, but the bulbs are starting to poke their heads up, so there is some sign of spring.

We learn better,we do better!!

Monday, June 25, 2012

I always joke about my weight,it never seems to bring me down because,I love myself and who I am.I'm healthy and losing weight.My oldest DD decided to join me on my quest since she gained alot of weight through the years.BUT,she is driving me crazy!She tries to coach me on the way i walk,the way i eat and exercise.How far did you walk?,well thats not far enough.What did you eat?That's too much or not enough!What did you do for exercise?Try taebo!try jazzercise!ARG!!She's my closest baby girl(35) and she went back to work after months of being on hold aka laid off.She doesnt like my laid back,carefree attitude and thinks im too relaxed.This is serious! she pouts emoticonI want you around!!I laughed and she got mad!See,she smokes cigarettes and she's sneaking around about it.I dont judge her for it or tell her to quit.I know she loves me but,losing weight too fast has been bad for me.We learn better we do better!And we learn till the day we die!!I'm in this research mode to adapt to different flavors and textures of food and im enjoying it.I hurt my lower and upper back a few weeks ago and im getting physical therapy and nutritional classes to better myself.It has helped alot and im taking it slow.I take a swim class to get exercise but,she is modest about her body and wont go with me.If anyone has any advice for me it's highly appreciated emoticonSUSAN

    I think the Nutrition class will really help you in your weight loss journey, and even if your friend don't take the swin class with you try a Water Aerobic class at your local "Y" or Community Center. I hope this helps!

Taking them hills is tough work!

Saturday, June 23, 2012

Going up a hill today with Mr.wheelchair himself.We "walked in silence"for a while and he needed to rest his arms in the shade of a maple tree.Sue?he asked what motivates you?Well,my kids,my husband,my friends,my dog,my home,walking with you!He grinned and joked about he knew it was his legs that excited me!Motioning to his missing legs.I turned his chair to me,sat on a bench and said Bryan,what's eating at ya?Oh he said i'm sad today because its my moms birthday and she's passed away.I know how you feel my mom is gone too.She is?He looked puzzled.You said you do this to honor your mom.I do because she never had the chance to finish her quest to be healthy before she passed.Bryan,your legs are not who you are!You said your little girl is 6 months old?Yeah he beamed My heart!She will never know you with the your legs and thats just awful but,she'll know you as the daddy that loves her.The daddy that survived Iraq!!He looked at me with tears glistening in his beautiful green eyes.Bryan,it's better to have her dad than a tombstone to visit...He let the tears flow and I took his hand and said now stop your blubbering and lets get you going so you can get your strength back and get some new legs to walk with me!!He laughed and said Sue,thanks!You've done more for me than any therapist could...Its alright my dear I smiled and almost cried myself.There are hills in life,hard going up but better going over and down..lots of hills to come. emoticonSusan

    Sue, this touched my heart in a special way and the tears did more than come to my eyes. Thanks so much for telling this special little story.

    Susan, you are truly the most beautiful woman in the world!!!

May today and every day bring to you a ridiculous abundance of whatever you need. May all your concerns, struggles, anxieties and fears fall like ashes as you rise on eagle's wings, SOARING above all that would hinder you along this tremendous adventure of being and becoming all you are created to be. May the grace of God simply "overtake" you moment by moment. May the joy and victory of the risen Lord be yours in a very personal way... may you always be overwhelmed by the grace of God, rather than by the cares of life!
