A Confession

Friday, March 19, 2010

I so faithfully put my calcium and vitamin tablets in my pocket every morning, and then, in the evening, place them on my dresser. Why, oh why, can't I just take them sometime during the day??? Like, with breakfast or dinner??
I have been told that they do not work by osmosis! When I was working, my supervisor would have me take them out of my pocket and put them next to my computer - she even brought be a cute little dish to put them in! But did that help? NO!!
So, here I am still carrying them in my pocket.
Just gotta get them down - I know that when I do take them - they do make a difference in how I feel.

Right now - they are in my pocket and I have just eaten breakfast - a good time to take at least one of them. Will see if i can't take them today!

    Taking vitamins has become a habit and I rarely forget. I keep a container with Viactiv calcium chews by my computer so I do remember to take those. They taste good and are sweet tasting treat after a meal.

    What do you use for your water? Do you buy new bottles of water or do you have a re-fillable one. I would put them with your water bottle. make a pouch out of a sandwich bag and bubber band and put it on your water bottle then everytime you take a drink its in you way. I wish you luck. I have a hard time remembering them on the weekends. Thats when my routine is dependent on family members..

  How about programming it into your calendar at work on your computer? It should have the function that you can schedule reminders so you could type it Monday-Friday at the same time so the memo pops up Take Vitamins. I would program it for a couple of months at least until you know you will be in the habit of taking them.

    Getting into the habit of taking supplements is not easy! I leave all my bottles right where I cook, so as I grab my breakfast plate, I grab my vitamin/pills/supplements! One day is a good start, make it a streak!

A Stressful Week

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

The past couple of weeks have been quite stressful - family issues from the past that have surfaced - again. And, the death of a beautiful lady in our church. She and her husband were part of the group that established the Church of God here. She and her husband were married for over 60 years - so now he is alone. There are children in Portland, Eugene, and California.
Not sure what he will do now.

So, I am having my headaches again! Not fun. But, God is still on His Throne. And, I know that He will continue to be my Strength in the next few days.

An Evening Out

Friday, March 05, 2010

Am going out this evening. Our YAH (Young at Heart) group at church
is meeting at El Charritos for dinner and then to BMCC (Blue Mountain Community College) for a play - You Can't Take It with You. There are about 10-12 of us. Will be a good evening.
One of the youth in our church has a part.

  


So Tired this Evening?!?!?

Thursday, February 25, 2010

It is only about 7:30 and I am very tired this evening. Don't know why.
I had a good walk this morning - same as usual - about a mile.
Worked my 6 hours at the church, then stopped at Safeway to buy groceries.
Fixed dinner - my son and I watched an episode of MASH - and now the
dishwasher is humming in the background - about to put me to sleep.

Got an email from my sister in Brookings. She is diabetic and looking for a sugar-free
pound cake recipe. A friend at church is diabetic and loves to bake - so she bakes all the
desserts for our Wed. evening dinners and also for our Sunday School class.

I love my sister - miss her so much - she lives in the SW corner of the state and i live in the NE corner - just too far!!!!!! My son and I have gone down the past couple of summers - takes a couple of days - he does not drive - and it is just too far for me to drive in one day.
Not sure if we will go this summer - probably not. But, I do have an invitation from a friend at church to spend a weekend with her at her second home in Joseph - that should be lots of fun.

Well, my eye lids are getting so heavy - so had better get to bed and let them close for the evening
You all have a good sleep and will see you tomorrow,
Love you all,
Barb

This Morning Walk

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Just had an amazing walk - outside!! It is overcast and in the 50s so a great morning to walk.
I walk across the bridge and along the River Walkway - about half mile to Roy Raley Park and the 10th Street Bridge. Then turn my tape over and 15 minutes back home.
The music I listen to is a set of Praise Walk audio tapes i bought long time ago. Starts out at a slow, warmup pace, then increases for a good work out. At one point, she says that if I am walking 30 minutes to turn the tape over (and head for home). That i just about the point that I reach the Park.
So, just the right timing for my walk. I have about 6 of these tapes so can vary my listening each morning. And, the music is great - some familiars songs and some new ones - so am learning some new songs that I find myself singing along with.

Now to iron my blouse and get ready for work. Am having lunch with my daughter today. YEAH!
