Finally feeling more like my old self...

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

I'm finally feeling like my old self again - the one that's excited about life and ready to get going again. I took my 84 aunt to run errands today (she'll be 85 on the 27th). We went to Wal-Mart so I got some walking in there. Her favorite place to eat is Long John Silvers - it's not mine but once every 4 months or so I'll take her. Then we went grocery shopping at Aldi's. Stocked up on some canned goods, fresh fruit and vegetables, kefir and was so surprised I only spent $48. I was afraid I had too much so I didn't finish getting all my list. My Aunt was the same way. We had a lot of groceries! I love going to Aldi's to get groceries. I wished they had cauliflower but they were out. I was going to get apples but I figured with the tangerines and grapes I got I didn't need them right now. I love tangerines and I planted the seeds tonight.
My Dad has a tangerine tree that I grew from seed. He has it in a flower pot and it's really growing since it got to Florida. So I planted a bunch of seeds tonight. I had 18 tangerine trees started last June but the heat wave last year while I was on vacation killed all of them and all my lemon trees. I planted lemon seeds and Meyer lemon seeds too. I have another pot with tangelo seeds in it. So....I'm hoping they'll grow.
I still have a light case of bronchitis - mostly the cough but I'm 100% better from what I was. I finally got rested up. If my foot wasn't giving me so much trouble I'd be doing more exercise.
I would have loved to walk my dog longer than the 71 minutes I did this afternoon but after all the running this morning and that walk it was hurting bad. So I'm resting it and I had it elevated earlier. I skipped my workouts with Leslie Sansone tonight because of my foot.
Now I'm bouncing off the walls. I'm ready for life, for getting out and walking my dog, for working on getting healthy and fitter. Who's with me?
