Not too exciting day. Walked Phred twice and cleaned the house. Sort of boring and quiet.
Thats about it.

Today started out pretty normal. Ran errands for my husband, the bank, CVS to get his prescription for Chantix so he can try again to stop smoking cigs, and the market for a few things.
Still not feeling 100% after my migraine on Tuesday but doing better. Talked to my friend Irene today and she has been working a lot so we haven't been able to do any walks or hikes.
Took Phred out for 2 walks this after noon. Still not getting in my 4 miles but I did feel like I had a lot more energy once I started walking Phred for the first walk.
Today was my Aunt Janet's birthday. She has been very ill because her cancer returned and really a few weeks back all of us were sure she wouldn't be with us too much longer. She even asked to go into hospice because she thought that she was near the end. I was so jazzed when she answered the phone and sounded so much like herself. She was so happy that I had called to wish her a great birthday. Her husband Louie was making her a special dinner and yesterday she was able to get a couple of fish tacos at Rubios. Unbelievable, that woman is a Wonderwoman and one of, if not, the strongest person I have ever known. She had a hard life and I only wish her the best for the rest of her life. I love you Janet, you go!
Tonight we watched the end of the Laker game. We are not big sports fans, at least when it comes to watching games all the time, we are NASCAR fans. We will watch finals for football, basketball and baseball. I like to watch extreme sports and olympics stuff but otherwise not too much of a sport family here.
Today was a good day all around.

Well, yesterday was not one of my better days for following my diet goals. Woke up and had a headache that just wouldn't let go of me, wasn't a migraine but very painful. I refused to use my migraine meds. unless it is a full blown migraine. Unfortunately, it laid me up most of the day in the dark in my bedroom. I did take Phred for a morning walk for 40 mins. and 2.17 miles, thinking the fresh air might help, that was a big mistake.
The problem I have when I get these headaches is that I get nauseated but hungry for stuff I shouldn't be eating, like sweets and salts. Gave in pretty bad and my calories for yesterday were 3,459, yep you read correctly. I did my weekly weigh in yesterday morning and was 156 pounds, and you would think that would make me happy and stop me from eating all the junk but it didn't.
Feel somewhat better today and the headache seems to be gone. Took Phred out for another 40 min. walk this morning and I may do an exercise dvd later. Just depends on how I feel in a couple of house. Pretty tired still even with all the rest yesterday and slept 9 hours straight.
I think I was having a problem with my fibromyalgia too because my feet and hands were burning and my lower back was hurting too. My toes kept cramping up so may just take it easy today but stay on the lower side of my calorie intake.

I have two alarm clocks. One to wake me about an hour b/4 I really need to get up. I have medication I have to take an hour b/4 I can eat. So I set the first clock and when it goes off, open the blinds about 1/4 of the way up, so the morning light starts to come in the bedroom and take my morning medications. Go to the bathroom and then hit the bed again. But I woke up an looked at the clock and it hadn't gone off yet, so went back to sleep. Only problem was it stopped working at 7:56am and I didn't realize it. Oh well got up at 9am.
I had some errands to do today and by the time I ate breakfast it was pretty warm outside so I got in the car, ran to make a deposit at my hubby's bank, then stopped at Fresh & Easy store to see what they might have on sale. There isn't one near us but down the street from his bank. Then I took a few bags of clothes over to Goodwill finally. Man it was warm today.
Hey we had a earthquake a little while a go. Felt it pretty good this time, the news says it was a 5.7, a baby one to me. Having lived my life in S.CA, I am so use to earthquakes that I don't normally even notice them. Tonight I did.
Was a bit tired today for some reason but still did 1 LS dvd "5 fast fat burning miles"and only took Phred out after dinner tonight when it had cooled off. Going to need to get up earlier to walk him b/4 the ground get too hot for his paws.
