Mon, 14 Apr 2014 19:35:43 EST lazy day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5671212 It might because I had to get up at the crack of dawn again this morning and/or lack of sleep is getting to me but I feel lazy and I am curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee and my phone! Sun, 13 Apr 2014 14:02:10 EST got the boys up early http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5670452 Christopher had to be up for 5 am for ROTC competition and Timmy had to be up for 6 am for national guard, so I read in bed (so glad I can read books on phone in the dark), got them up on time and went to sleep and still got up early! Sat, 12 Apr 2014 11:37:25 EST thunder, lightning and rain = not a good day to run http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5669879 Decided it was safer to do my run on the treadmill and I understand it wasn't for long and compared to others it was pathetic HOWEVER I ran at a 6.0 for 10 seconds!!!! Awesome and of course I was not holding on! Sometimes I amaze my self! Have a good weekend everyone! Fri, 11 Apr 2014 14:31:29 EST got to do all I hoped yesterday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5669176 So I did get to help hubby in yard, and I did my run and was able to do two 1 hour classes at the Y! This morning when I got up I found that my pump was put in pond by hubby and oldest son. Went shopping with hubby didn't find yarn I wanted so saving money for hobby lobby instead of buying clothes, lol I know I'm such a clothes hoarder but I didn't get any today, hubby should be proud, lol. Thu, 10 Apr 2014 15:53:05 EST hope to go to the Y http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5668339 Two classes I want to do, but hopping that I will still be able to do my run. Also hopping to help hubby with some of the building for outside improvement. Wed, 9 Apr 2014 14:48:04 EST shopping http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5667758 Went shopping for wood for my fence around one of my flower beds. Hubby is making the fence and so far I like it a lot. When that is done I need a fence around my pond and then my brick pieces I want from Wal-mart. I know it seems to be taking for ever but it will get done... I hope... Tue, 8 Apr 2014 22:40:44 EST did my run in the rain http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5666842 So it was raining lightly and I needed to do my run so ripped a piece of a plastic grocery bag into a small piece and put it over fit bit one and I got soaked but fit bit one stayed dry! C.C. went for run a long with Daimon and well Daimon didn't want to run so very unhappy C.C. but next time I will have Christopher take her instead cause he runs with her and she is very happy when we get home and tired! Mon, 7 Apr 2014 20:14:14 EST Spring break is over! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5665882 So Becky went back today from weekend break (her break was 2 weeks ago), Robyn and Timmy's ended last week, hubby goes back today and the other two go back tomorrow! YAY me I get to party with hubby cause she in school online! So glad kids go back! Sun, 6 Apr 2014 18:18:25 EST I'm having a me day and no it's not a good thing http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5665112 when I say a me day what I mean is I am unapproachable. No matter what you say or do it is going to either make me mad or make me cry. I have these days and on these days I can't be touched in anyway cause it makes my skin crawl. Normally although I am a touch-a-phobe it doesn't include my family, on these days they can't touch me either. Sat, 5 Apr 2014 14:57:43 EST raining again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5664287 It's raining again so I will do my run on the treadmill and not sure what else. The Y has no classes on Friday's so I have to think for a bit but I'm leaning toward Wii fit plus. Fri, 4 Apr 2014 11:57:37 EST my stomach is just not right! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5663766 I really don't feel well, even have a lot of stomach pain. Felt fine at zumba but as I was on my way home it just hit me. I need to get another 5,000 steps and I am just trying to figure out how! Thu, 3 Apr 2014 20:02:41 EST Not going to do my run! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5662914 I went to the Y and did Zumba/hip-hop for an hour and then kick boxing for an hour. Add that to take 60 minute walk earlier today and I just don't have the energy to do a 30 minute run! Wed, 2 Apr 2014 20:10:09 EST My walk home from zumba ended in a 911 call! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5662075 Walking back from zumba I take a path between the backs of 2 buildings. It is a path that is hardly used anymore. I found a man on the ground who had fallen from his bike. He said he had been there for about 15 minutes and could not get up. I called a family member for him and an ambulance and stayed with him til they got there. He is 75 years old and had just gotten picked up from the hospital after having a surgery. I guess as he was left by the woman who came (she went to pick up one of he... Tue, 1 Apr 2014 20:37:49 EST At the Y http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5661261 Went to Zumba and then swam a mile, got home rested a little and did my 30 minutes run and walked for 15 minutes. <BR> Mon, 31 Mar 2014 22:37:50 EST Bad day!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5660261 I so don't feel well at all today, don't want to do anything but am slowly getting it all done! Sun, 30 Mar 2014 19:20:29 EST Military ball http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5659560 So the JROTC had it's Military ball tonight and My sons date was an hour late! Well at least she came and we got pictures and I hope they have a good time. She is very nice and pretty and I don't know why they are not dating except that my son goes through females like I go through water!!! <em>2</em> Sat, 29 Mar 2014 20:22:35 EST Abot the movie Noah... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5658923 I watched it with hubby and my oldest daughter and her boyfriend. Hubby said Son of God was better. Myself, I really have mixed feelings about the movie. First let me say I realize being Jewish that the stories I was told, the ones read to me as a child may have been different for other people but I grew up with the impression that both Noah and God had more compassion then what was depicted in the movie. With that said it did have a decent ending. I wouldn't say don't go see it but it is not... Fri, 28 Mar 2014 21:33:59 EST going to the movies http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5658125 I swear I spend half my life at the theater! Really good thing I don't eat the pop corn or candy and I drink water! Going to see Noah I will let you know how it goes. Thu, 27 Mar 2014 21:06:34 EST ended up at urgent care! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5657398 So when boys got home from school hubby and I went to Wal-mart leaving the boys at home and you would have thought at ages 17 and 13 this would have been fine. HOWEVER....NO it was not they got into a fight the younger one kicked the older one in the nose and there was blood everywhere so had to leave without buying anything and take the older one to the hospital. If there is a break it's a hairline at the top but the alignment is fine so they don't want to mess with it. He may very well hav... Wed, 26 Mar 2014 22:48:13 EST snow again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5656489 It snowed last night, and it is snowing today! I am so tired of snow, Daimon's track meet was canceled too. Still had zumba so at least that was good. I wish mother nature would decide what season it is and just deal!!! Tue, 25 Mar 2014 20:05:34 EST lots today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5655634 Daimons first track meet tomorrow, Christopher's class ring came in and hubby worked really late today because she had to take her bosses car to the shop to get a head light replaced and what the mechanic thought would be a 5 minute job turned into a 2 hour nightmare, because he had to take out the air filter and everything else that housed it and behind it, all for one light and guess what! After all that it doesn't work so boss has to take it back tomorrow! Mon, 24 Mar 2014 19:08:14 EST movies http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5654785 Divergent was really good as long as there is at least a part 2, if not then the end sucks. Son of God according to hubby it's emotionally touching, it was really good. Sun, 23 Mar 2014 18:45:38 EST going to the movies http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5654060 So hubby is going to watch her movie "Son of God" and myself and Timmy and Becky are going to see "Divergent" I will have to tell you what everyone thought in tomorrows blog. Hope everyone does something for enjoyment this weekend! Sat, 22 Mar 2014 17:42:37 EST Finally get alone time with hubby and.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5653492 Finally get alone time with hubby and she has homework due! Can you believe that? It figures honestly it really does! Oh well took advantage of the time and did a 30 minute run around the park, a 15 minute walk, 30 minutes on treadmill with weights and 20 minutes on elliptical. Yes in all that time hubby was and still is doing her homework...

Thu, 20 Mar 2014 22:08:06 EST walked the mountain http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5651860 Well it's not really a mountain it is just this hill that goes straight up for about a mile with no flat ground, no place to sit and/or rest then when you get to the top you keep going on a mostly down hill with a couple of small hills. Any way took C.C. and of course Faiel and C.C. did amazing! I was so proud of her only 9 months old, only problem is there is no side walk and she wanted to walk the middle, I guess she figured cars and such could go around her! Wed, 19 Mar 2014 20:13:47 EST Walmart again!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5651149 Trying to do spark while walking around walmart!! Tue, 18 Mar 2014 22:20:34 EST heart doctor http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5650281 So my cholesterol is down below 200 and he is still not happy. Still trying to push cholesterol meds knowing I have a muscle disease, knowing that all the meds for cholesterol effect your muscles. Doubled my aspirin, when asked why he said cause I had a balloon put in my lower aorta in 2006 and a heart attack in 2011.... Then why double it now after saying my EKG was good and everything was better then it was last check? Hubby thinks he is just a pill pusher. Good news is this is the first ti... Mon, 17 Mar 2014 20:50:44 EST more snow http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5649486 It is snowing again, looks worse then it is but still I NEED spring!

Sun, 16 Mar 2014 22:41:17 EST was a choice http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5648675 So at Wal-mart they are still having a clearance on clothes and they have jeans and shirts on sale for a dollar and they are in all sizes! Hubby had to go to Wal-mart and the deal is if I go to Wal-mart she has to buy me something cause I am very spoiled hee hee hee. So hubby said either I had $5.00 dollars to spend on the clothes on clearance or I could pick out 3 pairs of underwear (mine are to big again) and she would get them instead. Have to admit it was a hard choice but the underwear w... Sat, 15 Mar 2014 20:49:51 EST Took C.C. for a walk http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5647896 Ok so C.C. the mixed puppy with mostly Weimaraner in her is now 9 months old and before summer we have to have her walking on a leash with control so today when I finished my run hubby met me at the park with C.C. and we walked, have to say she did awesome!!! My daughter took her 3 month old Shih Tzu the other day and well that didn't go as well but it sure was cute! She walked a little, saw a lot and then sat and waited to be carried. Then it was done all over again, all the way around the p... Fri, 14 Mar 2014 18:07:55 EST cold today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5647342 I so miss warm weather, it was so cold I didn't get to walk to zumba, I had to get a ride.

Wed, 12 Mar 2014 04:58:01 EST swam a mile http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5645697 So it takes me less then 20 minutes to run a mile and it takes me almost an hour 1/2 swim 1. I am juts not sure that is good. Well at least I swam it though. I guess that counts. Tue, 11 Mar 2014 21:39:28 EST Zumba at the YMCA http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5644781 So I decided to try zumba at the YMCA and I really really liked it BUT wow towards the end for like the last 20 to 30 minutes we did weights and I didn't bring mine so I had to use 5 pound weights which isn't that big of a deal with the weights I normally do. But wow with what he was doing, I will bring my 3 pounders! Mon, 10 Mar 2014 20:18:06 EST Daughter went back to Berea today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5644019 So she was home on spring break and I have to say the time went so fast. I sure do miss her. It just adds to how I have been feeling. At least we had a nice visit. On another note my fit bit one which I normally love, and even though it's not accurate on much other then steps normally I just except it for what it reads. Today however I am really frustrated with it! I did 107 minutes of of workout dvds and all I got credit for was 151 calories burned in 7 minutes! Like I said just really frust... Sun, 9 Mar 2014 23:05:29 EST Walmart clearance http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5643113 I went to Wal-mart with hubby and she sent me to clearance! Wow they have all kinds of clothes for a dollar! Got me 2 pairs of workout pants, a pair of workout shorts and a t-shirt with Iron man on it for one of my boys!

Sat, 8 Mar 2014 19:33:29 EST my dog pulled a faker! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5642473 So I went to do my 30 minute run around the park and then I was going to follow it with a 30 minute walk. Decided to take one of my dogs, and of course I thought this through because although out of 4 to choose from none of them have gone on a run with me. So Daisy the pekingese is good for 2 laps around the park and then she wants to go home to the point she will lay down when we get to the corner she knows is close to home. BabyDoll the toy cocker freaks out when people come to close so tha... Fri, 7 Mar 2014 21:41:24 EST my daddy turns 70 today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5641540 I called my dad and we all wished him a happy birthday! Can't believe he turned 70 today, I miss him and hope all goes well this summer cause we are suppose to go to Georgia to see him. He is going out to dinner with his wife for his birthday and he got a new battery for his boat and a new weed cutter (I am sure he called it something else but I can't remember what he called it). He said he was going to his favorite restaurant (all you can eat seafood) so he can see how much seafood he can ea... Thu, 6 Mar 2014 17:00:11 EST went to YMCA http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5640837 So went to the YMCA and the plan was to do an hour of kick boxing and then an hour in the pool. Got to class and was informed that because so many showed up they were doing RIPPED instead! Really? That is CRAP!!!!! I can't do RIPPED there is to much jumping in it and I am not suppose to jump! So went down stairs and asked how often that happens. The woman said it doesn't ever happen it's just that so many people were home home bound for 2 days due to the weather that everyone showed up to do ... Wed, 5 Mar 2014 22:08:21 EST another day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5639849 did 120 minutes of cardio, yes I split it up. Still need another 2000 steps but that isn't much so ready for another day. Tue, 4 Mar 2014 20:30:00 EST school was cancled today and tomorrow http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5638920 So last night the storm was a bad one and all the schools canceled between yesterday and last night. Well all the schools but ours that is, ours waited until 5 this morning to cancel. Then late this afternoon they called and canceled for tomorrow but the weather is fine today, so no idea what is up with them. Mon, 3 Mar 2014 19:57:57 EST storm hitting http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5638091 Getting the ice part of it right now, suppose to get some freezing rain, snow and maybe some sleet. They all amount to the same thing to me nasty dangerous roads and weather. Sun, 2 Mar 2014 22:25:22 EST walked around the park http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5637184 My daughter and I walked around the park, even took my pekingese. Was hopping I would feel better but still just here...That's me... Sat, 1 Mar 2014 21:10:31 EST Doing what needs to be done http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5636397 That's what I am going to concentrate on. Just doing what needs to be done! Hopefully in doing this I don't dwell on any issues that may imply I am not ok, that I am still drowning...Anyway I got my exercising in, and my food is all in. My food intake was great, and my exercise left me feeling accomplished. Fri, 28 Feb 2014 20:38:43 EST surrounded but empty http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5635377 The feeling of emptiness weighting down on me, but yet surrounded by so many things and so many people. I feel like I am drowning in a well of depression that I can't find the bottom of and I can't swim out of it. Sitting here I feel like I am feeling sorry for myself which is something I do not approve of, but at the same time don't have the will to stop. I try to blame other things and the weather, even people but what if it's just me? I was once diagnosed as a manic depressant and doctors ... Thu, 27 Feb 2014 15:05:01 EST Yoga and Ripped! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5634771 I went to the Y to do an hour of yoga, on the way to the room yoga was being done in I met a woman headed there too. She introduced herself and I followed her to Yoga dragging my oldest boy with me. Yoga was great! Loved it! When class was over Cindy (the woman we followed) said she was going to do Ripped and said I should go, I said ok I will try it. My oldest boy said NO WAY mom I am done! So middle boy said ...well...I will go if you want me to.. I said good your going. An hour later I am ... Wed, 26 Feb 2014 22:07:26 EST
