Today was a relaxing and great day spend with my hubby. We went to Mountain top trade day. No nothing special was found. I bought tomatoes and my hubby some peanuts. Otherwise if with just a nice walk outside in the sunshine before the heat of the day. I also went for a walk with a friend when we got home and it was the heat of the day. I came home a bit overheated. I laid in the floor with the fan as...

Otherwise its business and work. I am blessed but man what a nice play day this could be. A laying in the sun down at the pier, riding on the boat kind of day :). May be after work a boat ride...

I have to get out of here early because I need to get gas. I am not really awake. My hands are not working great and I have a heavy feeling in my arms and legs and my head feels foggy like I have taken a sleep medicine but didn't. I did feel awake often last night so I guess I just didn't get enough sleep in. I did use my C-pap and I am not having excess stress or worry.... I just didn't sleep well. This has been so hard to type. <BR> <BR> OK I have to go. At least this i... Thu, 26 May 2016 07:07:41 EST Yesterday was busy! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6169961 I love my new job location. It was slamming yesterday, jam packed, without time for an afternoon walk. I got a lot done and am earning my living on that job. Today back to my main office again with a full schedule...I am blessed. <BR> <BR> Gotta call the doc today to set something up for my blood work and a check up. <BR> <BR> Have a great day everyone Wed, 25 May 2016 07:51:53 EST Time for T3 check http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6169335 I am tired like take a nap tired and bed early tired for over a week.

Mon, 23 May 2016 07:42:53 EST Praising all the way. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6167962 I ran naked...meaning no music yesterday. It was a timed 8 k and I did around the expected finish 1:07:53. No music helped me think and pray all the way. I have Christian running music by WHOSOEVER SOUTH <link>whosoeversouth.com/ </link> that I love to listen to on runs. 3 albums that are uplifting and keep my mind on the run and praise. Yesterday however, I thought about the journey and what is different now from before. How the routine and music has become the outcome rather than... Sun, 22 May 2016 07:32:00 EST The River is alive with Music...(insert sound of muic them) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6167346 Most people know the epic music from the Sound of Music... Well think "The hills are alive with music" but insert the river is alive with music...lol. That is the song I was thinking shortly after awaking this morning. Yes, I had a smile on my face thinking it as I listened to the sound of awaking all around me. Now, my music was playing on my real alarm...that's what actually woke me up and probably made me think .... "song". It was playing hard rock NOT movie theme music, but I thought... Sat, 21 May 2016 06:49:21 EST Rainey off day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6166816 Nice gentle rain this morning. It's gentle and refreshing, restoring, and helped me sleep late till 7:20 am. I am an early morning girl generally up by 5:30 am. So sleeping late and being able to on this off day was lovely. I might run and get wet since it's not a freezing cold rain or lightning storms and I might do some treadmill and yoga. It's going to be a great off day! Fri, 20 May 2016 08:54:42 EST TGIT http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6166086 Thank God it's Thursday...Thursdays is my last work day this week. Today Callie not Bella goes to work with me, she did yesterday as well. Did I mention she got jumped on by three dogs and had surgery to 6 bite punctures last Sunday. She is just a 12 pound dachshund and was attacked by three medium size dogs one a pit who inflicted the most damage. ANYHOW, she is doing well and will have the drains removed today. Her mouth where she lost teeth seems to hurt her the most. The pain pills...

It's because I am fatigued from the long day yesterday. Not sleepy but tired... I felt better as the day progressed so I am glad to reach the end of the work day today. Home and glad to be.

Tue, 17 May 2016 06:06:52 EST Volunteering was work and Great FUN! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6163881 I really had a nice day volunteering at the bike races we had over 700 riders come through our rest stop at the highest Peak in the state on Chehea mountain. Some of them once, some 2 times if they did the 100 miler and some three times if they did the ultra. We had to call for more food and received supplies after having to make do with peanut butter on Taco Chips when we ran out of bread for a while. They ate it along with all the pickles, every drop of juice from those jars, all the oli... Mon, 16 May 2016 07:03:35 EST Top of ALABAMA http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6163225 Getting Ready to head to the TOP of ALABAMA to man the Anniston Runners Club's rest station there. We are just past Buckner Tower with a smile to greet the riders at the rest stop all day. What a beautiful way to start this sunday overlooking the beautiful view God granted us here in ALABAMA. Be safe riders! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/5a02c1ac-52c8-408b-bb97-18d483f48093.jpg"> Sun, 15 May 2016 07:01:35 EST Run, wash, training, and boat ride all by noon :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6162620 My husband is leaving now to pick up the boat which is ready. It's going to take him 4 hours, so I cannot go with him. I will instead run, wash three dogs, and have Bella at obedience training by 10 am. By the time I get back home at 11:30 we will be ready to launch the boat and ride! I am so happy to get it back today to enjoy this beautiful day on the river. Tomorrow I am volunteering at the Running Club water stop for the Chehea Challenge bike race. This is a big regional bike race i... Sat, 14 May 2016 07:49:24 EST Nice day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6162315 What a nice run this morning. The weather was just terrific with a light breeze. I walked up the driveway and when I reached the top I wanted to run. I had to wait on my watch to get signal and while I waited I wanted to run. I could feel it, the anticipation, it was good. I ran 3.5 miles and could have run more if I had more time but had an appointment with the chiropractor. After that the massage therapist then an hour of work. Somewhere in there I got grocery shopping done. (I carr... Fri, 13 May 2016 17:55:22 EST Long day looking Better http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6161314 This is the hardest day every month because is falls on Thursday the last day usually of my work week. I work four long day's a month but this one Thursday doesn't end till 8 PM. That is a 12 hour day for me and grueling emotionally with the type of work I do. It is something I might give up come October when it's time to renew contracts. I will also possibly begin another day at the new job from l started last October. It's guaranteed pay if a client cancels or not. <BR> <BR> The goo... Thu, 12 May 2016 07:32:58 EST Taking it easy and came home after work http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6161020 I decided to come home after work and not go to yoga. I walked at lunch and got another a 2 pm leaving work with 12,000 steps today. At 2:30 I actually laid down in the floor with Bella after a 30 minute walk and we both took a brief nap. I am feeling good with a long day tomorrow so decided to come home early and not stay for class. Tomorrow is my long day of the month and just felt I wanted to be home :). <BR> <BR> I hope you had a great day and are being kind to yourself as well! Wed, 11 May 2016 19:47:21 EST Work and Stress http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6159900 Too many work hours, too much stress! Getting my steps and runs in but not much else... Tired and looking forward to the shift in work that should begin sometime soon! <BR> <BR> Gotta Go! Be safe everyone and have a great DAY! Tue, 10 May 2016 07:28:24 EST Pictures and Mothers day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6159186 I am not a mom but am a good mother type person. I take care of the one's I love and the kids I work with. I always accept happy mothers day wishes with grace and the sentiment of love that folks say it even though I am not a mom. Even folks who know me say it to me. Some others are awkward, not wanting to hurt me but don't know what to say fearing I have heartache over not being a mom. I avoided a lot of mothers day today. I miss my mom and all the pictures of mothers and daughters on ...

We worked on finish, sit stay, down stay, and walking in heal with distraction. Afterward she shopped with me at two stores (Home Depot and Ross) who welcomed her in. I cleaned the last of the closet shelves. It's taken me ... Sun, 8 May 2016 08:34:15 EST Let'sgo run this morning :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6158047 I would like to run the group 8 K but time getting there and back is an extra hour that I can get Bella a bath before Obedience training. Plus the driving there and bac and essentially back to the same area again with the dog then home. She can't run 5 miles and Luke doesn't think the temperature is cool enough in the car crating. So I have decided to do a local 8 k run possibly alone because my running buddy has a sore mouth from getting braces. I am STILL GOING TO DO IT! but feeling ... Sat, 7 May 2016 07:34:23 EST Good day in Alabama http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6157902 It was a beautiful day here in Alabama and I enjoyed it completely.

Fri, 6 May 2016 23:09:50 EST Better Sleep Better Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6156739 Wednesday was a better day without afternoon yawning and fatigue because of a better night's sleep. I was busy at work so had to get my steps on the treadmill when I got home from Yoga but got my 10,000 steps done. I traveled between counties at lunch so that prevented my lunchtime walk :(. I hope to get one today and maybe an afternoon run after work. <BR> <BR> Hope your day went well and wishing you a great Day Today! Thu, 5 May 2016 07:23:35 EST CPAP helped http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6156063 I feel better rested but realize I still had some sleep disruption. The humidifier wasn't working and dry is the word. I hope it's working better tonight. I don't think I had it seated properly. Otherwise its time for a tune up. I however do think it helped me breath and I woke up feeling better rested overall. I did 4 miles running yesterday with friends after work which was nice. The weather was great and a little cooler than it has been. Afternoon runs are usually hard but I wanted... Wed, 4 May 2016 07:49:44 EST Walked didn't run http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6155355 I am having disrupted sleep and have not been using the c pap. I am not stopped up and although Allergies have been terrible, my eyes on fire. I am using the local honey (one teaspoon each morning) an bedtime allergy pill. So I am not awaking stopped up but this morning I realize my sleep has been so disrupted with waking up tired instead of ready to go. So tonight I will go back to using CPAP tonight. It may be that simple. The doctor said I had only mild sleep Apnea initially and then... Tue, 3 May 2016 07:38:27 EST LOOKING forsome thing lost http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6154537 So I thought I blogged cleaning the closet yesterday but guess I lost it. I did get the closet cleaned out and my clothes into it and out of the laundry room. Now if I can find a list that I seem to have lost! It will have to be redone next week otherwise and I will be a bit behind otherwise. It's a busy morning so I have got to go. Bag packed for after work run if its not raining. <BR> <BR> Have a great day! Mon, 2 May 2016 07:56:17 EST Rain can be healing when it's not damaging http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6153253 We had rain last evening after waiting all week with it forecast and not having any. Believe me we in Alabama understand the power and fury of rain and storms. Last night however it was a healing rain. We were out walking dogs as it came rolling in. The wind picked up and blew refreshingly. It picked up a neighbors towable for the boat and blew it away into the slew. I was able to walk Bella around and get it to stow up under their porch. They were not home at the time. The wind was just... Sat, 30 Apr 2016 07:01:24 EST Stress Dreams more is not better right now http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6152689 I struggled all of 2013 trying to recover from my Liver Hemorrhage surgery 1/2013. It took a year to get back to work 3/4 time. Then I had to have the hernia surgery (and tummy tuck), 12/2013 that same year, which was an easier recovery but still impacted on my work schedule. I was going to work about 10 am to 6. So 2014 rocked along great still loosing weight and getting stronger running, working the same kind of schedule and having 1/2 a day off most Tuesdays getting to work at 9-5 wit...

I am on track with progress notes, I seem to be on track with not drinking at meals and not eating multiple peanut butter crackers. In fact I had none yesterday. I got my 10,000 steps in and did a little obedience training with Bella in the evening. The ribs were delicious for dinner last night and we have enough for dinner tonight. I love having leftovers on Wednesday and Thursday nights so I don't have to cook much on those nights... Wed, 27 Apr 2016 07:32:45 EST Great Rest Day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6150555 I rested yesterday and road in the boat for one hour until it acted up. We then took an 1 1/2 hour drive down to the dealer and back to get it checked. It's under warrantee still. Something has been wrong ever since the floor was replaced and the motor removed and put back on. They hooked something up wrong last time and fixed it but ... So it should be replaced under warrantee. <BR> <BR> The result was 7,000 steps not 10,000 and no training miles. A nap in the car while my husband ... Tue, 26 Apr 2016 08:01:09 EST Day of REST! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6149834 Today we will put some ribs on the smoker and I will make salad and vegi to go with them and we will go for a boat ride. This will be a day of rest NOT A WORK DAY. I walked after church and then cleaned the boat. I was exhausted by dinner time. I made BLT with egg and cheese for dinner then showered and crashed. <BR> <BR> I was over tired before dinner and made a stupid mistake damaging the plug of the pressure washer. Yes I know it can be fixed but didn't know it was locked in and pu... Mon, 25 Apr 2016 09:17:28 EST Life is Good and I Am Thankful http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6149082 I am thankful for the life I have. I looked at an emotional life satisfaction wheel last night and realized I really was high on life satisfaction. I am depositing into my physical health account in many ways other than just running when I looked at the wheel. I was at peace to see how many of the area's I was ticking off. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/365ff538-7e2c-49e4-b18c-974fed955f19.jpg"> <BR> <BR> So today I am feeling particularly thankful that I live...

She did well or we did :). Got home and helped in the garage....ugh I hate having to help clean the garage but do it when asked since I mostly dump the junk into it. We sat down at the boat doc and watched the sunset and are now watching a movie. 19,000 steps later for me. <BR> <BR> I had a nice day yesterday as well that ended with a movie. We saw Criminal and it was really good. I am running and not experienc...

No court today. Planning a walk with my running buddy. I ran a practice 5 k last night with the running club so walking today and race day tomorrow. We also have Advanced obedience training starting with Bella. I am trying to get this done before Summer and then football season. <BR> <BR> Well got to finish so I can change and get my walk in. Have a great day everyone!

On top of that I am back to my 10,000 steps a day and tracking miles for the month. I have to do 3.25 a day till the end of the month to get my 100 because I paused for 4 days last week...ugh. Yoga was last night which was good. We had a substitute instructor who was not as calming as the original one but was very good. She was friendly and engaged with everyone but faster and an almost shouter. We shall see if it remains as rewarding to... Thu, 21 Apr 2016 07:30:42 EST From Rain to Watering....it's Alabama http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6146240 We thought it would continue to be rainy and got the grass seed out in the area's of the yard that we had to put some soil and boom it stops being so rainy. Well this is Alabama and just wait it will switch from cold and wintery, to spring and tornados, to summer oppressive heat to, Fall and everything dying....Wait that's in the same week sometimes. Ha, I say this but wouldn't live anywhere else. I love Alabama! <BR> <BR> Got my steps in every day since Saturday and am doing the Work wee...

Hey I am caught up and today's hearing is cancelled and they decided they don't need me Friday...They don't want me because of some of the things I would say. I also have a cancellation this morning so I have reached out to my walking buddy.

I have two court hearings I am expected to attend on top of working which complicate things. Dreading it and stressing over it doesn't change a thing. I did everything in my power to prep for a busy week. All my progress notes are up to date and current and two important letters were completed. If not for the hearings I normally would have used time this week to catch... Mon, 18 Apr 2016 08:11:51 EST Grauation day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6144441 I had a great day Saturday. It started with a 5 mile walk, then Graduation, then blooming festival at St Bernard's Abby (140 original artisans booths) and Ava Maria Grotto. I got progress notes done during travel and I am all caught back up. Thank you battery operated lap top. The only down side is I really tightened up and now having knee pain. It's better but I have a tight IT BAND from sore hips. I had sore hips after not getting my 10,000 steps for three straight days last week. I... Sun, 17 Apr 2016 19:56:38 EST Tomorrow we graduate from intermediate dog obedience :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6143160 Tomorrow is the big day! We graduate and then on to Advanced. After which we can test for the Good Citizenship Certificate. Then the last stage is Therapy Certification. Bella has done really well in her training despite her desire to chew up siding. We ran through our tasks for graduation tonight practicing. Tomorrow is the big day :). <BR> Fri, 15 Apr 2016 21:25:24 EST Yes to YOGA! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6142005 I made it to yoga and really enjoyed it. I didn't get 10,000 steps again yesterday but, again had a busy day and just forgiving myself for it. We had rain which made it hard to get out and walk. Today is the long day and I fear another rainy day. I will do my best and be proud of what I can accomplish. Just slammed at work after being gone all week last week. Bella did well at work and at least wasn't alone in the yard to look for more siding to tear up. Looks like we are moving it to... Thu, 14 Apr 2016 08:13:19 EST BELLA! oh no....Bad dog...ugh http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6141270 So I got home yesterday and found the mess in the yard. Now it took effort to pull this siding out from under the tarp that has things piled over it and is folded we thought tightly. The heck of it is the tarp looked totally undisturbed and my husband initially feared it was pulled off the house instead of the extra we kept. <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/1e09dc70-a802-4713-868c-c4c7ecdb8a72.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/db75fe0e-13...

This is especially good as we spread grass seed and hay Sunday afternoon in area's were work on the sea wall tore up the grass. The damage was minimal compared to what it could have been but still needed the TLC. It also knocked the pollen down which my lungs appreciate when I walk and run. <BR> <BR> I had to walk on the treadmill last night and got my three miles in while the doggies played in the den. We worked with Bella but it w...

Giving thanks for the business and asking God's grace and guidance as I proceed through the week. Let your light shine Lord! <BR> <BR> I ended up with 22,000. steps after a 3 mile walk ad helping Luke in the yard yesterday. It was tiring but productive. We used the golf cart to lug heavy stuff from one place to the other and it was helpful. In the past we would not have carried it either but h...
