Bootcamp day 5

Thursday, January 07, 2010

Today I did exercises here at the homestead. I had to run to K-mart to get some new bras, buy Samra a birthday present (it won't get to Muskogee on time because of weather) but it is on the way. I looked at the wrong month on my calendar and somehow thought the 9th was Monday. Oh well I purchased a small handbag for her and hid $30 in the pocket.
Lucy seems to be doing Ok, still playing with Phred sometimes but she gets tired on her walk and takes her time getting up the 2 steps to the frontdoor. She is also having some problems getting in/out the doggy door. She is a trooper and I am hoping that she has longer then the 1 week to a month that the vet predicted.
I think the medication the Vet gave me for her arthritis is helping with her overall pain because she does not seem to be moaning as much. I don't know if this is just me being hopeful or not. emoticon emoticon


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
