Rainy Tuesday Morning

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Was pretty cold this morning with the rain and wind. Decided to get out and do some marketing and stop by CVS. Came home and it had warmed up so I took Phred for a little bit longer walk. I think he is ready for the longs walks yet again. WOO HOO Had lunch when I got back and then did a "5 mile" dvd.
It was sunny and cool by dinner time so I BBQed the London Broil.
I off to watch "TBL" & Lost

I Don't Like Mondays, I Don't Like

Monday, May 17, 2010

Woke up to it having rained most of the night. Was a cool morning and continued to be a cool to cold day. Rained until around 10:30am, I took Phred out for a short morning walk around 11:18am and then came home. Just felt lazy this morning, I guess the weather does that to me sometimes. I cut out coupons while watching the soaps today and then did a "5 mile" walk with Leslie Sansone, showered and the husband got home from work about 5 mins. later. The day just got away from me, didn't seem to do anything around the house. Even forgot to get anything out for dinner from the freezer. Frank and I drove over to Wendy's to get some dinner, I have their Chicken Grilled Wrap to Go which only has 260 cal + a side salad with no dressing. So I decided to have some "Rocky Road" ice cream, only 1/2 C and I still kept under my calorie count for the day. Phred got a second walk after dinner and I think he has pretty much recovered from hurting his back. emoticon


Clothes shopping at Target & passing the Spark

Monday, May 17, 2010

I still need some more shorts and bermuda's in size 10's for summer, along with some smaller tops in mediums. So went over to Target this morning. After picking out about 7 items went over to try them on. I was talking to the lady who checks you in and telling her how nothing fits anymore. She asked how I did it and I told her about Sparks People.com. She wrote the name down so she wouldn't forget and she was also going to tell her sister about it. I told her for the first 2 weeks you really don't change much of what your eating, just so you can see how much you need to change. She sounded excited. Only thing is I forgot to give her my site name so I could get credit if she and her sister joined. Oh well I will just be happy if she does and gets healthy.

Got home in time to see the last 30 mins. or so of NASCAR while eating lunch.
Started to watch a Robin Willams movie called "Bicentennial Man" and my sister called from MY. So still haven't seen all of it. Did "30 Day Shred"and "Fast 4 Miles".
Made dinner, walked Phred.

Cleaning day/Our neighbor Jim

Saturday, May 15, 2010

I got up this morning and was going to go to the gym but decided I would clean house and do one of my new Leslie Sansone indoor walking dvds (5 Miles Advanced//1st miles w/3# hand weights/2nd mile fast/3rd mile using the walk belt/4th miles fast/5th miles with resistance band, in 65 mins plus a 5 min. cooldown. Very good workout.

Phred was upset he didn't get his morning walk. Hard for him to understand that he can't walk more than a mile for 7 days. His medication makes him feel so good that I am sure he has forgotten all about his pain. Hell he even trys to bite me and growls at me when I give it to him. I tell him he will get his favorite treat afterwards and he understands that. Maybe he will start to associate being good taking the meds with getting the treat, you just never know with him.

Pretty boring day today, same old same old.

Regarding Jim, he and my husband are good buddies. He ask my husband is I was ill again because he knows I have Lupus. "Why? No" my husband replied to him. I guess Jim thought I must be sick because I was getting so thin. LOL Jeff said "I told you she has been doing all this exercising and following this online program". Jim said "Well, hell I guess it's working'. Sort of made me feel happy that somebody noticed the difference but not that he thought I was sick with my Lupus again.

I know my friend/neighbor Rosa keeps telling me how good I look. The other day at the gym, Rosa's husband Francisco and I go to 24Hrs. He say's your getting so thin, you're going to melt away. I guess all the hard work is really starting to show when others take notice. I am smiling all the way to the bank or in this case to my Sparks friends. Woo Hoo


Hair cut and other novelties lol

Friday, May 14, 2010

Went with my friend Irene over to where her sister starting working a few months back in Yorba Linda to get a hair cut. She charged me $20 and I gave her a $5 tip. I really like the cut, it is bouncy and cute. B/4 she did Irene's hair we all went over to Polly's for lunch. Irene and I split a salad with the dressing on the side but I ate my cornbread because Pollys is very, very good. While Sandy cut Irene's hair I walked around for about 20 mins to get some exercise today.

After we left we went over to TJ Max's so I could buy a new belt. The one I have now is on the last hole and no way to add another hole anymore (woo hoo for me). I also purchased a new handbag for summer. I love my current bag but it is leather and a dark brown, not a summer bag. The one I got is sort of hippy looking but very cute.

Came home and Phred was so happy to see me. My son went with us for his mile walk. Phred was a bit slower and lay down to rest as soon as we got home. But still barking at every sound from the street. LOL

Got a call from my husband while we were out walking saying he would be home around 5:30pm. After we were home about 15 mins. I get another call from him. Seems while he was dismantling a temporary wall at the show he is currently working at (Anaheim Convention Center: Some type of dental convention). He accidentally knock down this wall on some womans head. Not good at all. The information officer asked him what happen and my husband answered, "I got a company phone yesterday". The guy cracked up. He has been with this employer for almost 4 years and just got this phone the other day. So now he has to go get a drug test on the way home and no telling how long that is going to take. I know from when I have had to take them myself or when I had to take my son when he first started working as a security guard it can be a while.

The bad thing about this happening is if he hurt someone who is sue happy. Which in CA seems to be everyone. Everyone wants a way to make a fast buck.
I guess the woman had a little bump on her head and I am sure it hurt. The company will be held responsible for any injury because they have to carry insurance (Union rules) but it still sucks. This could get my husband fired!
Of course, I know his drug test will be fine and some of the guys he works says this type of thing has happened b/4. It just has never happen to my husband so I am hoping that is a plus for him.

Also was very tired today. Why? Because my husband's alarm went off and he didn't hear it and it woke me up. I got up and thought I had turned it off but no I had only hit the snooze button. Then I forgot to give him his credit card back after the trip to the vet. yesterday and he wakes me again to get it back. I have been half asleep all day so didn't have much energy for exercise today. Oh well I am sure I won't make my calorie burn but I will go to the gym tomorrow and try to make up for today. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Xena, Hopefully, the lady is not "sue happy" and will not sue the company. sorry that incident happened, it can ruin someone's day in a hurry! Watch the buttons you are hitting on the alarm! Have a good workout tomorrow!
