So hot

Saturday, July 26, 2014

The heat is so high here that it's hard to do anything but sit if front of the AC. I just looked at the weather station and it says 109. Not sure what the feel like temperature is but at this point, who cares. Since we had some rain recently the humidity is quite high too. I did manage to get my walking don this morning before my son and I went to town. Started Sparking when we got home so got that done, too! Yay for another day to succeed!

    The heat we had here last week has reached you. It is worse for you though because we are desert and don't have the high humidity that you do there. Try to stay in out of the heat as much as you can.

    I agree 109 is insane! I thought it was hot and humid here, but not as bad as you have it! We are getting warnings to stay inside as our ozone pollution is at dangerous levels. We don't get that too often. Take care!

    Smart move to get your walking in BEFORE you reached 109 - that's an insane temperature!!!

I have finally made it back

Friday, July 25, 2014

I didn't realize that there were so many things to keep me form doing my exercises and Sparking with my friends. It seems as though I keep busy all of the time but never get anything done. It must be poor management of time as I could do it before. I have started back to work and have worked one day, not sure when I work again. It is much harder than you might think and I am wondering if I am really up to it. However, I am not a quitter without a good fight and I am not done yet!

    They say it takes 30 days to even start getting used to major changes such as a new home, job, etc. So it should get easier with time. If you give it a good try though and still don't like it you can quit. I have taken a couple temporary accounting jobs to cover vacations and enjoyed them, but was glad when they were over too! The eyes, neck and shoulders just aren't as young as they used to be and it shows! Made me happy to be retired again! I hope it will work out for you, but don't let them push you too hard. You are in control!

    I agree with the previous comment. Take it slow & don't push yourself to hard.

    Go easy on yourself - it takes awhile to get back in the swing of things, and you've had a lot going on! Sounds like you're doing the MOST important thing and taking care of yourself. We're still here when you get done with the OTHER important things you're doing!

Back finally

Saturday, June 28, 2014

I've been busy with Dr. appointments and DH's days off. It was a sad time for me last week as our German Shepard died suddenly. I put her out when we got up and she didn't come when DH called her. He went looking and found her dead in the corner of the fenced in yard. She was my protector and friend, I miss her very much.

The post office has called wanting be to come back to work but I have not been released as yet so guess I will have to decline for now. We are still waiting on the results of one test the Oncologist ordered and I go back in two weeks for that.

    So sorry about your german shepard. It is so hard when we lose a pet.
Hope you get good results from your tests.

    So sorry about your protector and friend! I hope she had enjoyed a long and happy life. It sounds like she didn't suffer and that is a good thing. One of my daughters has an elderly dog and I know she is going to take it hard when it is time for her to go. It really hurts to lose these warm and devoted friends.

Hope your test results come back with good news. Take care of yourself and think about getting a new puppy! It might be just the thing you need to brighten up your life!

    I'm so sorry about the loss of your German Shepard; they ARE such friends that not having them around leaves an emptiness in the days.

More

More steps, more cycling, more strength training but resting in between. I even took time to watch a movie, believe it or not. I haven't done that in ages! DH is working late this afternoon so I've got loads of time to take it easy!

    I had to laugh at your movie comment. I have a treadmill (let's face it - winters here are WAY too long NOT to have one!) and the only way I can convince myself to use it is by watching movies!

really tired

Friday, June 13, 2014

This is the first time that I have done all of my exercises in quite a while and I am so tired, can hardly keep my eyes open. What's amazing is that I even did my sparking, too. I have got to quit for tonight!

It makes you feel good when you can get your goals in for the day.
