Sunday, sort of a rest day.

Monday, June 14, 2010

Got up a little late and read some of the newspaper. Then headed out to take Phred for a short walk this AM. Headed over to the market to use the ATM and pick up a fews things. Got some steaks for dinner but I only had salad with mine and the men folk had the left over mash potatoes from last night. Did just a 3 miles LS dvd while using the resistance band and then took Phred for his reg. evening walk. I really took it easy today.

    My take it is easy is sitting all day on the computer. You still got in 3 miles with LS - cardio and ST. And you went for a walk. I think that is a very good day.

Woo Hoo made it to the gym today.

Saturday, June 12, 2010

Decided not to go kayaking today and instead head to the gym. I did a great strenght training routine for my upper arms, chest and back plus some stomach stuff. Then I did cardio on the eliptical for 55 mins. Very good workout today.

Came home had lunch, showered and took Phred for a walk, my son Frank came along too.
It had warmed up by 2pm because most of the day really sucked and it was very cold this am.

Grilled London Broil with homemade mashed potatoes with some garlic added to the water, peas and no sugar added apple sauce for me. Thanks about it for today! emoticon

    That sounds like a great workout - it is what I do. I do the elliptical first (but only 40 minutes) then the strength training. Do you ever use bands for the ST? I use a combo of bands and dumbbells - and I really like that. Anyway have a good Sunday.

Friday, house cleaning.

Friday, June 11, 2010

Yes another Friday comes and it is time to deep clean the house for the week. Do light cleaning during the week but do a good job on most Fridays, sometimes it is Sat. or Thursday.

Got up early to do put all my medications for the week in their proper place in the pill box, Oh boy what fun. Then ate breakfast, read the paper and just felt tired and a bit lazy. So I got my butt up and took the dog for his morning walk. Frank was going to go at first until I told him my morning walks are a lot farther then the evening walk. He changed his mind but did come with us on the evening walk. When I got back home from the walk, drank some water and started into cleaning, dusting, bathrooms, vacuum and mopping. Lots of fun, not. I always put the radio on to listen to classic rock and dance around the house and sing really bad but I am tone deaf so I don't care who hears.

My son just ignores me but he did dust his own room and take out all the trash after dinner. He gave Phred a bath the other day. Because he can not find a job and can't pay rent, his dad has told him he has to do whatever I ask him to do around the house. He is a good kid so doesn't complain.

I exercised at 3pm using a LS dvd. So did pretty well on my calorie burn today 1572. Happy with that. Going to watch Supernatural at 9pm because most everything else is a repeat and we are not soccer fans.

Decided not to go kayaking tomorrow morning after all. Sandy was suppose to go with me but called this morning and had been sick all night with flu like symptoms. The weather was very very cool this morning, like a middle of winter for CA. I had to wear a light jacket for my morning walk, and it was pretty cold by this evening. I did the cold weather kayaking a couple of weeks ago and decided "No thanks for that" but would have gone if Sandy was still going to come along. Still going next Sunday. I am really going to go to the gym tomorrow morning and that is my goal for Sat. Everyone have a nice evening and weekend. emoticon

    My kids are all home also this summer so I am making a chore list for them to do - including cleaning the house and weeding. They need to help out if they want access to the car. So good that your son pitches in. And your daily walks plus LS - great fitness for you. Keep up the good work.

Just another Thursday

Friday, June 11, 2010

Got up this morning to very cool weather. Took the dog out for a walk, did most of the marketing for the week. Came home and did some laundry and then it was lunchtime and I watched some soaps and then worked out and did make it to the gym again. Thanks goodness for all my exercise dvd's.
Nothing on tv tonight so have been watching shows on our local PBS station. They came out with a 3rd version of a show they do called "What isn't here anymore" meaning the LA/OC areas. Some of the show went back to Hollywood during the 60''s to 70's to the clubs and hangouts including the famous Tower Records on Sunset Blvd. It really made me think back to my senior high school year and living and hanging around in Hollywood in my late teens and early 20's and all the places that no longer are around. Now watching a show on Catalina Island, one of my favorite places to visit in the southland. emoticon

    I love Catalina! I haven't been there in years, and it's just a boatride away....maybe a treat for me in the future. Thanks for reminding me of it!

Husband OK

Wednesday, June 09, 2010

Last night my dear husband thought he was going to die from stomach pain but would not let me take him to the ER. After a few hours and many antacids and aspirin he started feeling better. Whatever it was it scare him very much. Today he called me at home and told me to call the doctor about getting some Chatrix(sp) some kind of stop smoking pills that all the guys he works with have use with great success. He has tried others so I really hope this time that he does stop smoking. Thank everyone who commented and sent their prayers.

Was tired last night and slept over 9 hrs. Got up and did the normal routines, took Phred out for a good morning walk, watched AMC and did 2 exercise dvd's and walked Phred a 2nd time after dinner.. I really wanted to get into the gym but I do plan on getting there tomorrow.

Thats all for today. Night to all

    I am glad that he is ok. It always makes sense to follow up on these things especially if he is a smoker - there are a lot of risks with that. I will pray that all is well and that he is also able to quit smoking.

  Hope you can get your hubby to the doc. You can't be sure what it was - just because it went away doesn't mean it wasn't serious. I had a pain like that - ignored it the first time and the 2nd time I went in. The ER ignored it too, until 6 hours later I kind of crashed and they found my lungs full of blood clots. I nearly died. He could have an ulcer that is bleeding, appendix that is ready to rupture, who knows? His life is too precious to mess with. But I know how stubborn people can be and you can only do so much!

Glad you are getting in so much exercise! Good for you!

I will pray for you both!
Love, your friend,
Amy L emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Glad everything is OK, for now. It might come back! That is how my appendicitis was. One evening it would hurt, but just felt like gas. A couple months later I would get it again. Finally one time it didn't go away overnight but was worse. Went to Dr then to hosp for surgery. It was a cinch once it was diagnosed and treated.

Sounds like you get a lot of exercise!
