Hi everyone, thank you for all the positive comments on my last blog.
5962 steps plus 1000 chair marching steps
60 minutes of walking
30 minutes of strength. including calf raises, boxing, core work on ball, seated leg extensions, squats and stretches
5318 steps plus 1000 chair marching steps
60 minutes of walking.
eating is really good and I am not eating empty calories.
Just made a pizza using 1/4 cup white sauce with garlic, zucchini, capsicum, onion, and 25 grams of lite cheese on a pita bread base and it was quite nice. The white sauce is because I am not allowed tomatoes so this was the next best thing. Saw it on the Net about using this as a base. So a fairly healthy meal.
Have another one tomorrow (made 2). Did you see no meat. Ya for me.
So today I have been quite busy with housework, washing and the cooking, now I need to do some exercising. LOL.
Another goal I just worked out for April
7. 7000 steps times 30 days is 210,000. How close can I go. Wow something to aim for

Sorry I had to write this on here, only found it last night, but we have just celebrated St Patrick's Day and I couldn't resist.
Late one Friday night the policeman spotted a man driving very erraticaaly through the streets of Dublin. They pulled the man over and asked him if he had been drinking that evening.
"Aye, so I have> "Tis Friday, you know, so me and the lads stopped by the pub where I had six or seven pints. And then there was something called "Happy Hour" and they served these mar-gar-itos which are white good. I had four of five of' those. Then I had to drive me friend Mike home and O"course I had to go in for a couple of Guinness - couldn't be rude, ye know. Then I stopped on the way home to get a another bottle for later ..." And the man fumbled around in his coat until he located his bottle of whiskey which he help for inspection.
The officer sighed, and said, "Sir, I'm afraid I'll need you to step out of the car and take a breathalyser test."
Indignantly, the man said, "Why? Don't ye believe me?!"

Hi folks, Having a absolutely beautiful weekend as I ahve spent so much time with the grandchildren. We are having a small birthday party for my son today (the father of the children), his B/D is on Tuesday but because the kids will not be here then we are holding it today. More good memories for the storage box LOL.
My youngest grandson and I went shopping yesterday (the other wouldn't come) but we had a good time, it was quality time with him. He picked out the birthday present for his father. So funny he saw this statue and started laughing and right or wrong he wanted that one. All it is is a big nose sitting on a golf ball. So that is the present my son is going to get.
My arm is going really great, the AV fistula is working very well. i can even feel it now just by touching it. This is really good news as at this stage it is working fine.
I am still doing a lot of walking, I really don't like to sit around any more but I have learnt over the last fortnight that I need to do a lot more exercise.
Food wise I am going really well, I don't have to eat every thing on my plate now. I can say no if I can't eat a certain food. Keeping to the right calories per day. So not many issues there any more/ But I have put on about 1 kgs. Not happy.
So I still think my problem is not enough exercises or should I say not enough variety of exercises. I need more so that I can start losing weight again.
So this will be my big goal from the 1st April to increase my exercises up to at least 2 hours per day. Also to increase my strength exercises.
I regularly walk between 6000 and 8000 steps now, have been into the 9000's a few time and even walked once at over 10,000. But my goal is to walk between 7000 to 9000 steps per day.
Goals for April, I need to still give my arm time to heal.
1. Start again on the first of April
2. Walk at least 1 hour per day
3. plus exercise at least 1 hour per day (total 2 hours)
4. Strength train 3 times per week for between 30 and 60 minutes per time.
5. to start losing weight again so that I can make this year's goal of losing 25kgs.
Now I better get ready to go over and see the grandies again

Hi Everyone, my arm is still sore from the operation, not at the cut but down the arm. Every time I move it it feels like it is tearing. There was a lot of work done on the inside that you cannot see. It will get better in a few weeks. So I am still taking it easy and resting my arm.
The only exercise I can do at the moment is walking and a bit of movement using the chair but only moving my legs.
My grandies are coming over this morning as they have a student free day. So 3 lovely days of pleasure with them. But I need to be careful and not damage my arm.
