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... Fri, 29 Apr 2016 08:27:03 EST already at work! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6152131 Had to go this morning. Its not a long day but I'm already at work not having time to check in this am. I have 3,000 of my steps in and plan a walk at lunch before rain hits. Good day just busy. <BR> <BR> Hope you have a great day. Thu, 28 Apr 2016 11:45:39 EST Wednesday hump day :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6151251 As usual it's a full day with YOGA before heading home. 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... Sun, 24 Apr 2016 07:46:27 EST Really good day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6148849 I ran this morning and then we did the advanced obedience thing with Bella. 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... Sat, 23 Apr 2016 21:10:44 EST DAY off...hooray! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6147758 I am looking forward to a day off and a three day weekend. 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! Fri, 22 Apr 2016 07:30:47 EST Better week :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6147044 I am staying caught up since the weekend, Yahoo! 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... Wed, 20 Apr 2016 07:11:38 EST Busy week now not so busy :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6145512 BONUS time! 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 get to go for my walk this morning before I have to be at work at 10 am, Woo HOO! <BR> <BR> Have a great day everyone! Tue, 19 Apr 2016 07:47:05 EST I't a monday and NEW DAY! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6144731 No sense dreading Monday when it is a new day with new possibility even if it is the first day of another busy work week. 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... Wed, 13 Apr 2016 07:53:19 EST Cleansing Rain http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6140507 We had the best gentle rain all evening and last night. 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... Tue, 12 Apr 2016 08:10:09 EST Happy Monday :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6139674 I am feeling good to start this first day back to work despite being blessed with a busy week. 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... Mon, 11 Apr 2016 08:07:49 EST Busy Sunday after worship today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6139405 I walked after church getting in three miles and then did yard work with the hubby. I am tired and we got a lot done. Sun, 10 Apr 2016 21:04:22 EST Recovered today and giving thanks! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6138321 I feel recovered today from the disrupted night last night at the hotel. I am thankful that the fire alarm worked properly and that all was actually well. The hotel responded to my facebook post that said the alarm was not fun but overall the stay was very nice. Turns out something in the kitchen was overheating but not on fire. The fire department did respond as my friends room overlooked the road and saw them when they returned to the room. Does it help to know it wasn't just some drun... Sat, 9 Apr 2016 08:11:31 EST Fire Alarm at 1:30 am! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6137951 What a rude awakening when the fire alarm when off at 1:30 AM this morning. I was up like a bullet as the PA system that I didn't know existed in the room instructed me to move to the stairwell and evacuate immediately. I grabbed my jacket and purse slipping into my shoes on the way out the door along with all the other hotel guests. By the time we got to the stairwell they were announcing we could return to the rooms. I and many others were not happy campers! I wonder how many left the ... Fri, 8 Apr 2016 14:50:06 EST Workshops are tiring or is it the socialization.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6136917 I whimped out last night going to bed instead of staying to socialize. We have gone from 8 am till basically 10 pm two nights in a row. So last night after we got back to dinner I headed to the room for some rest. My back needed it as did my mind. The classes are 8-5 then social time from 5:30 to 7:30 with free drinks. I don't drink due to my bariatric status but I hung out. I had them fix me a highball glass of plain water with lime that looked like a drink and hung out. Then we went ... Thu, 7 Apr 2016 08:15:07 EST Good night sleep http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6136121 It's amazing how a good nights sleep rejuvenates. I am up dressed and ready to go to breakfast. I have an 8 am session 8-12 ugh... Well off I go! <BR> <BR> Oh ya here is a pick from yesterday! <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/25bfabe7-965a-4ce8-8483-a1f24abaab7e.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Gotta go <BR> <BR> Have a great day everyone! Wed, 6 Apr 2016 08:10:24 EST Eating too late in the evening! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6135969 I am doing well on my food consumption while at my workshop. I am not snacking and not grazing which is good. My food choices and amounts have been good. We however have been eating after 7:30 pm and I am usually done eating by that time. Also we are not getting back to the room till late. Even later tonight because of the delay's getting food and delays getting the check. My burger was burnt so I really didn't eat and opted for a shake when I got back to the room. I have not had enou... Tue, 5 Apr 2016 23:47:11 EST Packing for travel http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6134609 I do not travel light! I have workshop clothes, running clothes, warmer clothes, rain coat, tennis shoes, bathing suit, dress sandals, play sandals, Electronic/computer bag, food and shaker bag, cooler ( with P3, Balance breaks, almond milk for shakes, vegetables and fruit to snack on, and Vitamin water)...ugh and no spouse to help lug it all. I am thankful for the rolling suitcase and the rolling cooler this morning! I am preparing to load the car, go walk, go tan, change and leave for th... Mon, 4 Apr 2016 09:52:40 EST Cow in the Ditch http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6133806 I am not going to church today as we have to, get the cow out of the ditch... Do people from area's other than the south get that? We have priority stuff that must get done before I leave tomorrow. Time crunch because of TAX deadlines. We will still do bible study individually at home but just need to be home today. <BR> <BR> I don't know that I will get a walk in but home to later today it is also a worship time for me. I praise God listening to worship music as I walk. I really may ... Sun, 3 Apr 2016 09:03:29 EST Good Day today :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6133495 I walked with my friend, washed a dog who did great in obedience training, then we hung out at the Noble Street Festival and Sunny King Bike Race. We watched one of the races then walked some more and visited venders (Slice of Pepperoni Pizza, sugar free fresh squeezed lemonade, and 1/2 of a chocolate peanut butter cup cake). We also visited to pop up art show. Bella got lots of attention as we walked through the crowd. She was very well behaved. After getting home I had to grocery shop ... Sat, 2 Apr 2016 19:50:17 EST Reflection on the week and my monthly Accountability! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6132257 This week has been jumping and today is no different. It involves walking and a massage for me but I am carving that out of a day full of commitments. I am literally scheduled every minute to get done all I must do until 4:30 pm. After which I am good. The hubby will handle dinner because I refuse to cook tonight. The end result is I will be tired but I WILL ALSO BE DONE with all my notes, billing, letters and commitments that are needed before my workshop next week. I will be gone a wh... Fri, 1 Apr 2016 06:50:50 EST Ok, Ok, Ok ... A little Pink Floyd to wake up this morning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6131479 It is really cool how a song can cause so many memories of youth to flow through you. I woke up to the radio playing a little "Dark Side of the Moon" this morning and smiled. The 70's were a good time to be a teen. This was my DH music actually but we grew up together marrying young in 1977. So my morning started well and I hope something in your day also makes you smile and have great memories. <BR> <BR> I had a long day yesterday but it went well. I was tired when I got home, pretty w... Thu, 31 Mar 2016 07:13:44 EST Busy Wenesday :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6130694 It is a beautiful busy Wednesday today and I am rested after another good night sleep Today, tomorrow, and my Friday are all slammed because I am gone all next week. The National Child abuse Conference is in Huntsville next week and I am going! It's not exactly a vacation but it is relaxed and Huntsville is a nice place. I love running in Big Springs Park daily. While attending the classes is a requirement, our group is very relaxed. We are there to recharge and enjoy the learning experi... Wed, 30 Mar 2016 07:45:34 EST Blessed Sleep http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6129952 I am feeling much better after enough sleep last night. I used my antihistamine and the CPAP last night. It seems during seasons my sinus are swollen and the apnea is worse because of that obstruction not the tongue. So YES! I feel refreshed today. <BR> <BR> I did get a walk in yesterday but didn't do much after getting home. I was just tired. Maybe will be able to run this evening. Sleep effects so many things....I am glad to have had a good night! Tue, 29 Mar 2016 08:27:39 EST Sleep, food, and Steps Easter Weekend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6129093 Awake and needing to be sleeping. I considered taking something to sleep then didn't because I don't want to have the drugged feeling tomorrow. I could sleep however two more hours so why am I awake. I was so tired that I did fall asleep after eating Lunch yesterday. It was very brief and sadly in the company of others but I could not stay awake around 2 pm. Now I stayed awake all evening. I had leg cramps come evening from being on the go so much this weekend. I took the Hyland restle... Mon, 28 Mar 2016 05:18:48 EST Happy EASTER!

Afterward fun with family at an early Easter get together. We had a wonderful service last evening for Good Friday Service. It helped to put my Spirit in the right place as the constant go with pre planning and earlier than usual shopping and planning for the busy weekend, had interfered with my Spiritual preparation. <BR> <BR> So my friends I hope that you too can have a moment, a pause, time to allow yo... Sat, 26 Mar 2016 07:04:23 EST Beautiful day today and tomorrow http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6127154 Well Micky Ferguson on FOX 6 was again correct and the storms were not as severe has hyped up to be. The day went well yesterday without excessive cancellations as I feared. This allowed me to go for some walks first thing in the morning and again at noon to insure my 10,000 steps for the day. Today I will walk first then have a hair appointment, massage and NO WORK DAY! I will instead prep foods for the weekend this afternoon. We will end the evening today with a Good Friday service at ... Fri, 25 Mar 2016 06:03:03 EST Here comes the rain... (rant and update) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6126484 I have a busy day but wonder if real storms or the threats of storms that the news have reported will cause people to cancel today. This happens a lot. Many people in Alabama have real reason to be anxious about storms that have hit them. Many others just are anxious people (maybe should not live where tornadoes are a part of life). I really am thankful for the news and meteorologists but in the past years because they don't want to have missed reporting a storm they now over report and c... Thu, 24 Mar 2016 07:54:25 EST It's Alabama weather http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6125656 Freeze warning yesterday, warm and sunny today, tornadoes threat tomorrow with spring storms. Yep this likely will effect our area between 3:30 pm and 8:30 pm. Quiet weather Friday and Saturday...Yippy. Last year for the Canyon Climb run it was really cold. It's predicted to be a great running weather day! <BR> <BR> My monthly miles are looking good at 83.66 this month and 9 more days till the 31st. Wed, 23 Mar 2016 05:57:10 EST Running social http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6124946 I ran with the club last night and had a couple (man and wife) who ran at my pace. That was nice I wasn't alone and would have been. We did 4 miles and then had a pizza social and speaker on triathlons. He talked about all the things he learned not to do by error. Like put on your swimming goggles with sun lotion hands in a hurry during transition. Mostly what I learned is I am not ready for such races but I enjoyed his talk. It did make me think about biking and working on that upper bo... Tue, 22 Mar 2016 07:52:52 EST early morning but done at 3 :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6124133 I get done at three today and then am heading for a group run at the fort and to join the social afterward. We will have pizza and a speaker who has completed tri competitions. I am not interested in tri but who knows someday I might be. I am however interested in this group of people and enjoy getting together with them. It is a 6 mile run and depending on if someone else is running my pace or not (I don't want to be out on the long final stretch alone) I might do the 3 mile course and ... Mon, 21 Mar 2016 08:10:50 EST What a beautiful if chilly day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6123437 I do wish we had this weather yesterday but today is not lost on me :). I am planning a walk with friends after church then we have our dress rehearsal at 5 pm for the Easter play. I have one report to finalize. The works all done it's just needing typed. <BR> <BR> Plan on having a great worship and beautiful Sunday. <BR> <BR> P.S. the shoulder is better today.

Pain like I used to have. It's better today but still stiff and sore. It's improving... I went for a 4 mile walk today and Bella did great at the obedience training. I am feeling a little frustrated with plans I wanted to make for today. Yucky weather. I wanted to go north to Tennessee and Hike the Walls of Jerrica. No we didn't get to go :( <BR> <BR> Ah, here comes the sun it is finally shining! So lets see what we can do...
