The sidewalks were totally covered in ice, but the streets were okay, so I drove my scooter to the fitness center and enjoyed my three classes back to back, Zumba, Boxercise and Step! Woohoo!
I got my Fitbit July 17 and my notice that I had walked 736 miles Dec 10, so if there is anyone out there who can do math, maybe figure out my average daily mileage. I am having a bit of trouble with it. I had charged it two days ago and it said it was low, so I put it on charge and it showed four lights within 20 minutes, which is abnormally fast so there must be something wrong with how its reading its charge.
Also Sparkpeople's Fitness and Nutrition trackers aren't sincing properly. It says I only burned 375 calories!!! My fitness tracker says 1459!! For three fitness classes I would believe the Fitness Tracker!!
Off to finish my club work, back for a shower and dress up for my building's Christmas dinner!
Here is to off the pounds!
Have a Super Saturday all!

I have said it before, I will say it again, a good physiotherapist is worth their weight in gold! Maybelle gave me a treatment today and suggested I may get nerve regeneration, but that it could take 1-2 years. In the mean time, she is sending me to an occupational therapist get splinted so the thumb won't contract into my hand. She also made room in her busy schedule to give me an extra appointment close to Christmas. They are very busy with several therapists off sick so I am lucky to have her. She also suggested to prop my legs up at a 90 degree angle to relieve my back pain.
The bridge club Date Book proof finally came in and there were several errors so I had to send corrections back, don't know how long it will take to get the corrected proof back. They were pretty slow with it. When I get the printed date books it will be my last big chore to sell them to all the games we hold at the club. So far no word of any replacement for me.
I tried a barefoot barre cardio workout. Wasn't sure how my poor bad feet and toes would like it, but I did make it to the end of 13 minutes without any problems. I enjoyed it actually. Very freeing not having shoes on. Trying something out of my comfort zone.
Tomorrow I would like to get to my fitness classes, but the streets still looked impassible with my scooter, but there will simply be too much ice around to safely walk there, the sidewalks were covered with huge pools of water today. The forecast is to go below freezing :-( Tomorrow is also my building's Christmas dinner, it was sold out so I was lucky to get a ticket. Full Christmas dinner for only $9, can't beat that price, was subsidized by our tenant association.
Hope you all have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by and all your wonderful support!

I am not progressing with my arm. I can't even budge the yellow band to straighten out my tricep. Two and a half months after surgery and it still doesn't feel like a normal human being arm. It feels weird to the touch.
I have a mysterious rash on my back, so in case it was an allergic reaction, I took a strong dose of Benadryl nighttime. Well, I had the best sleep I have ever had in a long time, in spite of waking up seven times. But unfortunately, I couldn't stay up in spite of the pain and slept another two hours, missing any morning workout opportunity. So nine hours total sleep. Nothing productive done.
Got my scratched eyeglass frame replaced, and got my other glasses adjusted. Before they were so tight there were furrows dug into my nose. Now they are too loose and sliding down of course.
I was getting into my work when it happened. I am always hitting other keys with my finger and I got the weird set up that causes my Question mark backslash key to now produce only an e with a mark over it!! How do I get it back??? I only know to shut down my computer and restart it to get back to my normal keyboard.
Melting like crazy here. Just weird weather. I saw green grass in the back of my apartment. Water is running and pooling everywhere. Unfortunately, it will freeze soon and our city will become one gigantic skating rink, dangerous to walk or drive on. Can hear the sirens now..
I have physiotherapy tomorrow morning. I hope my Stepdad can make it safely here to pick me up. After my appointment, I would like to meet up with my Probus Club group who is doing a walk close by. It will depend on how icy it is.. Then I have to go to the club to get a check signed and in the mail for the tournament our club held.
Got to shake off the lethargy and start getting things done. Falling into a couch potato routine without the couch lol.

I purchased two pair, one for reading and close up work, of which I do an incredible amount:
They are in my favorite color for eyeglasses, bronze, brown, and gold tones, probably hard to see with Spark's poor resolution. They had a scratch on the frame, so they are actually going to replace them!!
These are my daily, rough and tumble workout glasses, made by adidas. I love the way they wrap around the head as opposed to curling behind the ear:
I had a pleasant fast walk to my fitness class today, Zumba, one only, as the other one Boxercise, was cancelled. The weather here has finally warmed up to - 6 C (21 F ) My sister was coming in today so I thought that worked out for the better because I finished in time for lunch. But unfortunately, I never heard from them and had a light lunch by myself. That worked out for the best too as I have a heavy turkey supper at the club tonight. Hopefully, this will be the last one I will be required to attend as manager. I really prefer lighter meals at night as I have enough trouble sleeping.
Enjoy your evening! have a Super Sunday!

I am fully moved back home now. Eating a care package of parsnip and carrots from the Farmer's market and some snap peas for supper and Mom's home made lasagna. When they dropped me off with my boxes of stuff, Mom insisted on scrubbing off the tape from a failed attempt at sealing my cupboards from the smoke coming in. It was very hard to get off, they had to use paint scrapers first, then GooGone. The white bits and pieces went everywhere, including inside my cupboards and all over my freshly cleaned floor. She cleaned the outside as best she could, but there was some left and I will have to vacuum then clean it again.
I thought to phone the eye glass place to check on the status of my new glasses and was furious to find they were in, but the store was closing (at 2 pm!!!) so I could not go get them. They had made no attempt to call me unless it was to my Mom's, but I had given them BOTH my numbers, and there was nothing on my display.
I will try make it out to my three fitness classes tomorrow morning. Then later is the Christmas Party game I am running at the club. Only a small number of tickets sold, so it will be a boring evening. I was disappointed to find out we have the same president again. He does as little work as possible, and doesn't even know the proper procedures for holding a official meeting. The past president had to keep shouting out instructions. He is never prepared for our officers meetings, always asking me to photo copy his stuff at the last minute and the annual meeting was the same. When the treasurer gives him important papers and later asks about them, he just says he doesn't know where they are. Also, he goes away for the winter as well. Its hard to believe he was honored for his volunteer work, consisting mainly of being the head of numerous boards.
The good news is no smoke was in today. I don't know if she is away or trying to quit again. Hopefully it lasts..
Exercise was online videos, one low impact, one high and 45 min Zumba DVD. Love the variety!
Have a good evening, sleep well!
