So many changes in the last couple of weeks. I am now the leader of one of the teams I am on. I was only a co-leader before. I have enjoyed being the Co-leader and now i am enjoying the Leader position. It has been interesting.

About me, I arm is healing well, still is sore but not as bad as it was before. So now I am starting to doing more exercises again. I have only been doing the lower body for the last few weeks.

Food is going well but I must confess that yesterday I had a few empty calorie things, met my calories but boy I was starving last night. I was silly to myself. It was things I can eat but absolutely stupid choices. i didn't have much for breakfast and i am sure that was the main problem. So I just picked. emoticon emoticon emoticon Not falling for the same trick today.

I am doing a lot of walking, in the high 6000 on nearly every day for the since the 18th March blog. Missed 2 days so not bad. I have been building myself up to meet my goals from the 18th

I have just joined the 8 week Diabetic challenge so that I can start to exercise regularly.

reaffirming the goals I set for April are


1. Start again on the first of April ( I have really started this already)

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.

6. for the 8 week challenge I will lose 4 kgs.

I can do this. I will be so much fitter and healthier. I will be a sexier babe at the end of the year with the 25kgs gone emoticon emoticon

    Wendy, You have become such a good role model for me--thank you. You are doing everything right and don't worry about having an occasional empty calorie treat--we all do that from time to time. I really love your page it is so Spring Like and Easter is nearby now. Compared to our pound system in the US how much is a kg? I might just google it and see what I come up with. You are wonderful and I'm rooting that you meet all your great goals as you are so worth it!

Hugs,

Jill

    Glad our arm is feeling better. You know we all have those days when we're ready to eat the kitchen counter regardless of whether it's good for us or not. But getting back in the saddle is how to handle it . . . just like you're doing.

Your stepping is looking great!!! Keep it up. Do you have a pedometer, I assume? I find wearing my pedometer is so motivating for me to keep on moving to reach my goal.

Keep on going. You're doing great.

OH, congratulations on becoming a leader!!! You are a very inspirational person, so I know you'll do well!

He is extremely drunk

Thursday, March 22, 2012

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?!"

    The scary thing about this joke is that I've known people like that.
The ad on your blog page is advertising a lawyer for when you are arrested for DUI. It is probable not the same ad for everyone but I thought it was perfect for this blog.

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.

Borrowed this from Chinagal

    I remember my hand surgery last year... that kind of thing takes about six weeks to heal--and THEN you have to work back into regular activity a little at a time. For me there was physical therapy... I am not sure if they go that route with fistulas, but you may want to ask in a week or two... Meanwhile, have some careful fun with the kids!

I KNOW it will distract from the pain... until the end of the day, when you're by yourself! LOL

Take care sweet friend...

Be well

Friday, March 09, 2012

Home from Adelaide. Operation went okay, lots of bruising on my arm but no pain. A lot different than what I thought it would be, I had this done by local anaesthetic and it took an hour to complete. It is called a AV fistula where they cut the vein and joined it onto the artery.
I am very tired, it has been a very long day. Going to bed.
good night
