Had to get some stuff done for today's guild meeting and still need to do a thing or two this a.m. for the meeting. <BR> <BR> Yesterday's burn below: <BR> <BR> 45 minutes calisthenics <BR> 3.45 miles walked <BR> <BR> total burned: 432 Sat, 16 May 2015 07:01:20 EST Update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5928442 Didn't get anywhere near in as much as I would've liked, had to wait for a repairman to return to do the job that he didn't do the first time. It's a shame how a lot of the work force is now....doing only a half way job while charging outrageous fees. <BR> <BR> Yesterday's burn below: <BR> <BR> 45 minutes calisthenics <BR> 1/4 mile walked <BR> 85 minutes mowing w/push mower <BR> <BR> total burned: 572 Fri, 15 May 2015 06:20:04 EST Update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5927870 Don't know how much exercise I'll get in today....have to have the plumber back out to fix the problem they didn't correctly do. Don't ever use Roto Rooter.....that is by far the worst experience I've ever had with a repairman. The septic guy that was out the other day could even tell how they had done the job incorrectly. Only good thing that happened yesterday was we were able to trap our indoor cat that got loose on saturday. She's been catterwalling ever since. Didn't sleep good las... Thu, 14 May 2015 05:50:14 EST Update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5927323 Didn't get as much walking in as I would've liked...had to have a repairman out.

So hopefully soon. <BR> <BR> Yesterday's burn below: <BR> <BR> 45 minutes calisthenics <BR> 2 miles walked <BR> <BR> total burned:321 Tue, 12 May 2015 05:54:41 EST Update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5926560 Finally posting a blog today about yesterday. It was a typical sunday with having to go take care of my mom. Would've liked to have gotten in more but we're trying to also catch one of our indoor cats that got out on saturday. <BR> <BR> Yesterday's burn below: <BR> <BR> 45 minutes calisthenics <BR> 2.25 miles walked <BR> <BR> total burned: 341 Mon, 11 May 2015 20:21:10 EST Update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5925624 Didn't get time yesterday to write a blog... pretty much had to jump into action as soon as we got up with having the yard sale. It was a pretty decent yard sale. The most popular items were tools and garden boxes. We sold all of the tools and all 11 garden boxes with a request to get 10 more garden boxes. Had those set up all cutsified with one of those white picket fences that are for flower beds and had all of the gardening stuff inside the picket fence. Made $275. Will be working on... Sun, 10 May 2015 06:12:51 EST Update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5924650 Didn't get in many walks yesterday because I opted to mow instead so that I could concentrate on having the yard ready for the yard sale. Got the remainder of the items that friends and family wanted to sell in the yard sale yesterday. Am surprised that with getting things from a total of 4 different households that the only things that are duplicated are items like throw pillows, of which it doesn't matter that are duplicated. Right now the inside of my house looks like a hoarders house b... Fri, 8 May 2015 06:48:21 EST Update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5924076 Had a pretty decent day exercise wise despite being as busy as heck. Had to go over to the landlords and pick up stuff for the yard sale. When hubby got home from work, he tried to put a bunch of it in his truck to take to work but I wouldn't let him. He was wanting to give the tools to a guy at work. Told him if he was going to do that then I was going to haul everything to the dump. No sense in having a yard sale if he's going to give everything with any value away. <BR> <BR> Yester...

It's been bothering me for several months now and is one of my main problems as far as motivation. As long as I'm in resting mode it doesn't bother me but when I'm up and about it's horrible. <BR> <BR> Yesterday's burn below: <BR> <BR> 45 minutes calisthenics <BR> 5.7 miles walked <BR> <BR> total burned: 577 Wed, 6 May 2015 06:07:08 EST Update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5923478 I wish I could get my left knee/chin to feeling better.

My dad thinks I don't understand what it's like to be a primary caregiver. Yet he won't ask my siblings for any help because he doesn't want to interfere with their lives. Like he isn't interfering with mine. <BR> <BR> Yesterday's burn below: <BR> <BR> 45 minutes calisthenics <BR> 1.5 miles walked <BR> <BR> total burned: 285 Mon, 4 May 2015 06:29:05 EST Update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5921651 Not much of a day exercise wise yesterday but typical of the weekend. Trying to also wind down in getting things ready for next saturday's yard sale. Will be glad when it's over so I can get the house cleaned up. Yard sale should be a big one, so let's hope I can get most of the stuff sold. <BR> <BR> Yesterday's burn below: <BR> <BR> 45 minutes calisthenics <BR> 1 mile walked <BR> <BR> total burned: 254 Sun, 3 May 2015 06:26:17 EST Update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5921165 Got in a couple walks despite the rain. <BR> <BR> Yesterday's burn below: <BR> <BR> 45 minutes calisthenics <BR> 4.25 miles walked <BR> <BR> total burned: 474 Sat, 2 May 2015 06:43:45 EST Update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5920577 Yesterday was a total flop of a day. My left knee was bothering me too much to do any major walking and they were calling for rain, so I pretty much took the day off to rest the knee and get some things done around the house that I needed to get done. <BR> <BR> Yesterday's burn below: <BR> <BR> 45 minutes calisthenics <BR> 1.25 miles walked <BR> <BR> total burned: 290 Fri, 1 May 2015 05:53:38 EST Update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5920049 Finally got the backyard finished as far as mowing until the next time.

Had a plumber come in the morning and he didn't even make it up to our sidewalk before he turned around and left..blaming a drain field for our plumbing problems. I called the company and was issuing a complaint before he could even make it out of the driveway. So ended up waiting another 3 hours for another plumber to come out. So much for exercise. 2nd plumber made it out and he called the first guy an idiot. They are returning today to "snak...
