After breakfast we went to church. Then we came home to watch the superbowl game. We invited a few people over but only my husband's sister came. I guess that was a good thing.

What I didn't realize was my shoes were too big. They kept slipping off my feet. I probably wouldn't have walked anyway because it also rained. I probably needed a rest day. <em>20</em> Sat, 31 Jan 2015 01:29:28 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5865633 Today I walked 2.3 miles at lunch time.

I went in for chest pains. Apparently it is muscle and my chest wall also swells up occasionally. I have ibuprofen for this but apparently I also have problems with my stomach and because I take ibuprofen, I also have to take prilosec or zantac once or twice a week. What fun!

We first went to an auction dealer to look at a 2006 Ford 150. Then we went to a ford dealer to look at their trucks. The salesman didn't seem to want to deal so we went to Chrysler dealer to look at the Ram 1500. Their trucks had better prices but my husband really prefers the Ford 150.

I was telling my husband that I didn't want to miss the other Pastor at our church bring the message and wouldn't you know it? He brought the message today and I missed it. Anyway after breakfast my husband and I was just sitting and watching TV when he decided he wanted to work in the garage. We are trying to make room to put our bowflex machine in there and we a...

When I got to the transit center, I climbed the steps. When I got home, my husband convinced me to take a nap, because I told him I fell asleep at work. I really think it was the cough syrup I took. I laid down at 6 pm and didn't get up until after 8. I guess I was really tired, but I hate taking naps. I always feel tired when I get up. My husband is still not trying to walk. It's a good thing I have been walking at work. Wed, 7 Jan 2015 23:36:21 EST
