Getting Back Up After Every Fall = DETERMINATION

Sunday, June 09, 2013

I am DETERMINED to get my walking back on schedule this week. I am altering my program from 4 miles every day to 2 miles every other day and 4 miles on the other days. Maybe that will give me the energy to branch out and try more stuff. I am also going to call up my surrogate dad (my BFF's dad) and ask him if I can wallow around in his pool like an overgrown sea lion. HEHE But it should be fun and quite refreshing.

My parents are leaving for 3 weeks in 7 days. I am quite excited!! I will just hate having to do ALL the gardening, mowing and weed-pulling while they are gone, but I will surely enjoy eating all the veggies. And my neighbor just sent over a TON of large zucchini, one of my favorite vegetables, so I will be cooking that up tomorrow. YUMMY! Nice neighbor, huh? We do try to share everything with our neighbors so we don't each have to do so much individually. It works... I swear it does! It's our own little community garden.

Anyway, I need to get my butt to bed so I can get up VERY early and head to the doc's office. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. All I can say about it is that I have gained 4 of the 7 pounds I lost being sick, I walked yesterday, Jack is limping like crazy from his arthritis, and It was hot, rainy, muggy and humid. So I took some time off to continue getting better. I am feeling a little stronger, but that's because I slept until 2pm today (I had some restless leg issues last night that I just couldn't kick it).

I hope you all had a wonderfully eventful weekend without any drama or tragedy. We all need a weekend like that sometimes.

Peace and Hugs,

    hang in there. I'm so jealous of people who have veggie gardens. I only have some cherry and grape tomato plants. That's IT. I wish I had peppers, and cukes and zukes and lettuce and....and....and....

    Enjoy the time home alone. You are Queen of the Castle!

    I hope your Ra settles down as it gets warmer. I know how that goes. My RA is acting up a bit as well, but after having it for 40 yrs. I am used to it. Just annoying hehe.Your walking goals sound good. I know you can do it. And the pool sounds great. Hope it works out. We also have a neighbor who brings over his extra veggies, and vice versa. It's nice having a friend like that!

    Sorry to hear that your RA is acting up. I recently got a cortisone shot in my left knee, so I'm feeling a little better. However, my depression is getting bad. I've been pretty anti-social lately. I'm hoping to come out of my "hermit" status now that the weather is getting nicer. Yummm, zucchini sounds great. I have a similar relationship with my neighbor. Gardening sounds fun, getting some sparking in! Well done. I hope your doctor appointment goes well. Take care Ang. You're in my thoughts friend.
