Celtic Thunder is on PBS - I like listening to them.
Today I played with my niece and nephews outside and inside, had a great time! We walked around the woods and around the house. Later, I walked with my puppy in my back field.
Slightly cold, but sunny; a nice day to be outside, also lifted my spirits.
I ate too many cookies with my niece and youngest nephew (a toddler). The box sat right there - too tempting!
I need to get up, moving, and exercising everyday. I seem to always find a reason not too... I hurt, tired, mentally "off", its cold and dreary outside, etc.
I realize the only legitimate reason is when my docs tell me to ease up; like yesterday, my neck was out severely and my hip was out. (I have back issues.) So I am on a limited easy walk program for the next several days. We (doc and I) don't want to aggravate my neck or hip.
The bursitis in my shoulder is acting up again (over a month now) so I had to stop any weight-lifting with my arms. I realize I miss the strength training for my arms and shoulders. We hope I will be able to start back next month, doing PT exercise (at home) for the shoulder.
I also, wanted to thank all my SP friends who are praying for me and have been keeping in touch. I need(ed) to know someone cares and is interested in my days and progress.
I have family and friends who know I'm trying to improve my health and weight, but I can't talk to them about what all is going on, which includes my struggles.

Today, I woke with a weird headache and was just out-of-sorts for most of the morning and afternoon. (I didn't get out of bed till 10:30 am, wasn't called in for work.) And didn't get moving till about 1 pm. Started on the computer then - still out-of-sorts.
Around 4:30 pm I saw my two older nephews outside, so I grabbed my coat and shoes and went out. Said hi to both, chatted briefly with my sister-in-law, then played outside with the two younger children. What a treat! I felt better just being outside in the sun and with the fresh air. And I love being an aunt. We walked around the house 1 1/2 times (slowly) and made up stories. Then I sat with the toddler for supper and talked about his train stories. My niece came and sat on my lap and we talked about clothes! What a great way to brighten my day.
I still have a headache, but feel so much better for that time with my love ones and the fresh air.
Thank my Heavenly Parent for these blessings in my life.

I'm at the library today. I still have Internet connection problems at home, I need to get that fixed. I don't have time to study (online classes), SP, and personal email at the library. I haven't been able to keep up with studying or entering SP. I track food and everything in my datebook, that is helping me.
It was warmer yesterday, about 40 degrees. Today back down to 30 degrees (USA). I am tired of the COLD!
Have a Happy (belated) Valentine's Day.
