Bad News and bootcamp

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

I am doing my bootcamp videos b/4 going to the gym. It is easier. I also took my Lucy Dog to the Vets this morning. She has been acting strange and winy alot over the holidays. I know her eye site had started to go because her eyes have gotten clouded over, this has been over the past 2 months. The Vet said her levels were extremely high and that because she is such a good dog she probably didn't let us know how bad she has been feeling and only just started to wine. I thought it was arthritis because she has had that problem with her hips for about 4 yrs. We put her on some meds for that problem but the doctor really doesn't think she has too long. Jeff and I have to agree, we are not the type to give out dogs diabetes shots everyday and check her blood. We have watched her diet over the last few years and she has lost some weight but not enough to keep from getting diabetes. I truly love my dog and have had her for over 11 yrs, she is a good old girl, the sweetest thing. I got her at the pound where they were getting ready to put down the next day if she wasn't adopted. She is part American Fox Hound and Boxer (I never worried about flys or bugs in my house because she could catch one in her mouth). She weights in at 70 pounds and was a house dog. We have another dog but he is my husbands and is crazy, whoever thought it would be a good idea to mix a Jack Russell and Poodle was not using their thinking caps that day. Anyway we will see how long my Lucy hangs in b/4 we take her over to the Vets to have her put to sleep. I will miss her so much, she was with me when I had elbow surgery, chemo for my kidneys, staff infections, a TIA, Hysterectomy among other things that have gone wrong with me. She was my house and walking buddy for years. What can one say about a good dog! emoticon emoticon


2nd day of bootcamp

Monday, January 04, 2010

Well I got through another bootcamp workout. This was stuff I had done b/4 so wasn't too hard on me. Hit the gym for a good strength workout and it felt good. I have a lot of energy today.


RE: Bootcamp

Sunday, January 03, 2010

Well I did the bootcamp video today after I came home from the gym and I had already done 130 mins of cardio so it was a little tiring for me. Tomorrow do it b/4 the gym. I gain 1 pound over the last 2 weeks and that is OK. Maybe it is just muscle. I wasn't getting into the gym as much as I should have been and I also was eating a little bit too much "Reindeer Droppings" and some other goodies. Don't feel too upset cause I will get right back into the swing of things. I will work hard at this bootcamp thing and see if I learn anything new. Tomorrows is gonna be tought because I have to use my balance ball against a wall and it is a exercise that my trainer at the gym tried to get me to do and I hated this type of workout. It is only 8 min so I can handle that.


Bootcamp starts Jan 3rd

Friday, January 01, 2010

Well I am doing the Sparks bootcamp and it starts on the 3rd. The first video looks pretty easy, it is a little over 10 mins and is sort of like doing the jogging dvd of Leslie Sansone. I hope I can keep up with it and it does seem doable right now. I am suppose to do pictures of b/4 and after but I don't know about that. Maybe I will do just the measurements this time. Wish me luck! I know there are a few of my friends who are doing this too. I wish all of luck! emoticon emoticon


Happy New Year, welcome 2010

Thursday, December 31, 2009

Well another decade has come and gone. Doesn't seem possible that I an 53 years old now but I am. My oldest will be 25 on January 9th and I told her she could stop having birthdays any time now because I have decided not to have too many more birthdays. I love that commercial that shows the old lady's and the song about when I grow up I want to be an old women. That would be find if I was ready to grow up but hell who really wants to grow old. I feel pretty good right now compared to March when my Lupus went haywire but that is just another thing I don't want to think about. The doctors told me I would be dead by age 40, ha boy, I sure fooled them! LOL I will continue to get well and go to the gym as much as possible. I will get my ass back into college, yet again!
