Early up, early to bed

Friday, July 02, 2010

I got up this morning at 5:45am this morning because I was suppose to go walking with Irene. She called about 20 mins to say she was ill. So I took out Phred before breakfast. Since it is starting to get warm I will have to start getting up earlier to avoid the heat.
Came home and made waffles for Jeff and I. I only use 1 TBSP maple syrup because I use frozen blackberries that I heat up and make a fast compote in the microwave.

Went to the bank to get my disablity payment money and put money in the checking to pay the bills. Then I cleaned house for a few hours. Rested up and made dinner and took Phred out for his after dinner walk. Tomorrow kayaking with the boys.

Did 11.92 miles total today

Friday, July 02, 2010

Got up early and went on a Santa Ana River walk today that was close to 6 miles with my friend Irene. I also did my LS dvd that was 5 miles where I use 3 pounds weight, walking belt and resistance band and took the dog for a walk.

We stopped on the way home at this new market they opened up the street. It is a traditional hispanic market with a full meat, bakery and just about anything like fresh salsa, pico de cayo(sp) and all kinds of stuff. I spoke to the manager/owner and he showed me the store add and that Thursdays are meat specials. They had some good deals today, Rib Eye steak was on sale today for $2.99 a pound. Unbelievable price here.

Going hiking again tomorrow so going to bed in a little while. Have a nice day all.

Doctor visit today

Thursday, July 01, 2010

Got up and had bloodwork and a doctors appointment this morning. The doctor is pleased with my weight lost progress and was pretty happy at how well I am doing. Still having trouble with my blood thinners. if anything else comes up with the other bloodwork the office will call otherwise I will see him again in Oct.

My doctor does not want me to exercise on bloodwork days. So I don'. Really feel lazy this week with not getting too much cardio yesterday or Monday either. Oh well , I am going on a hike tomorrow with Irene and I will take the Phredster out in the afternoon too.

Going to bed shorting cause I need to get up at 6pm.. On another subject my husband is doing really well on Chantix medication to help him stop smoking. Hasn't completely stopped yet but down from bwt 1-2 packs a day to about 10 cigs. With him that is more progress than he has ever made b/4. emoticon

25th Wedding Anniversary/Quiet Day

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Since my husband had to work today we didn't plan anything for tonight. I went out to CVS this morning to pick up some stuff and got him a nice card. I then went over to the market and got some steaks for dinner for the grill. We also had baked potatoes and honeydew mellon/ Very good.

I went over to the French bakery that I found over in the cith of Orange and picked up the Champagne cake I order. Boy was I surprised when looking for the calories online that Sparks had a recipe for this cake. I will have to try to make it myself because this cake was close to $30 dollars. I didn't mine paying that much but now knowing I could have baked this myself was a little disapointing, I am a very good baker.

My husband really liked his card and the cake. He figured the cake cost about $5 a piece with the way he cuts them. Really big, but this cake is pretty light. Watching/listening to "Hells Kitchen" right now and have a doctors appointment in the morning and going to get there about an hour early to get the blood work done b/4 I see him.

Once again thanks to everyone for their good wishes for us today. We will be heading to Catalina Island in the next couple of weeks for the day.

Bad night, couldn't sleep.

Monday, June 28, 2010

EVery once in a while I have a problem with insomnia and last night was one of them. Now I should have been tired from kayaking for 2 hours and I was tired when I went to bed. I even take 1/2 a pill that is suppose to help me. Not last night, first midnight passed, then 1pm and I kept getting up and having to pee every hour too. I was still semi-awake at 6pm., never really slept at all. First I couldn't get comfortable, then I was too warm one min. and then too cool the next. Was just exhausted this morning.

I took Phred out for about 40 mins. at 11:40am. I was going to go earlier but my husband had a errand to do and again did not want to all of his machines away. He said it would be only a few mins. after about an hour I called and he didn't answer his cell phone. So I waited some more. Finally my son got up and I told him to make sure no one was hanging around outside to maybe take off with anything. He was here when I got back and I guess called my cell phone which I had with me but didn't hear it ring. He got stuck at this place forever.

I tried to rest this afternoon but couldn't sleep at all but rested. I have had a little headache most of the day and I look awful with puffy eyes and tired. I plan on going to bed early tonight and hope to get a good nights sleep.

This afternoon my doctors office called to confirm my appointment for Wed. which they told me was at 10am, but the computer was trying to get me to confirm for 8am. And when I tried to call the office phone number got no answer. There is suppose to be an operator to pick up after hours in case of emergencies. They recently moved all the doctors to new quarters and I think they are having some problems at the new building. I will have to call in the morning to find out just what the correct time is??? I am also going to question the fact that it was 5:10pm when I called back and they are suppose to be open until 6pm. I also am concerned that if you needed to get a message to your doctor after hours that the operator never answered. What's with that?

That's about it for now. I sure hope I get some rest tonight because I have things to do to get ready for my dinner with my husband tomorrow night for our 25th anniversary.

    Annoying for you, especially the doctor thing.

I know what you mean about sleep--I have nights similar to that occasionally. I wish I knew the answer!
