I had forgotten that. So instead of swimming I went for a walk, and ran some errands. I also stopped at Starbucks, and discovered a new drink. It’s part lemonade and part ice tea. Well it’s new to me, and becoming my favorite drink there. I did get in 30 minutes of exercise though. I also got most of my other...

It's cool and cloudy here today after a nice morning. I got a walk in this afternoon. <BR> <BR> I was out camping at Lake Willoughby last week, and it was really nice. We went up on Monday I rode with my sister, and step mother, and we went the long way. They weren't ready for us so we took a ride around the lake, and to...

I got a lot of laundry done, and some work on the computer. I also did some housework, and indoor exercising. The rain really came down at times so I'm glad I didn't have to go out. I did but made plans for another day. Today it's absolutely gorgeous out there with lots of sunshine. A little cooler then it has been, but I like this kind of weather. <BR> <BR> Last week I had a really bad week goal wise, and other wise. I ha... Tue, 29 Jul 2014 17:13:33 EST Monday July 21, 2014 Getting hotter and humid around here. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5743607 I went to my physical therapy this morning, and did a lot of work on both my arms and legs. I'm working on my legs to be able to bend, and tie my shoes. I also did some work with water weights, and I'm feeling that now. Met my sister down in Burlington for a bit, then came home, and took a nap. I got up, and turned on the AC and it's nice and comfy in here now. I just hate the electric bill when it comes. Got all my goals done yestarday, and stayed within my calorie range. <BR>...

It's been a great week here all week weather wise, and I hated to spend a minute inside. I did really well on the exercise goal all week. I did 5 of the 7 days again so I'm not feeling too bad about that. It's easy with my physical therapy because that's twice a week, and 45 minutes. Then I spend the rest of the time walking, and doing my own swimming. The other goals I did really well as well. ...

I had a couple of bad days that turned into bad weeks. It hasn't been a great month, and I haven't gotten too much in the way of my goals done, and exercise has fallen by the way side.

It poured sometimes, drizzled others, but kept up a continual down pour. I walked over to my physical therapy session and was soaked before I got into the water. The water there is 92 degrees so that felt good. I had a really good work out though. Coming home it was drizzling so that wasn't too bad. Got home took off my wet clothes, and took a hot bath.

It's about 45 minutes in the pool. Came home, and decided I was too tired to do any computer, and book work today so I started physical work. I cleaned out my closet. I was looking for my shorts, and summer capris.. I found both. I also went through other storage boxes looking for my old writing pad. Haven't found that yet.

It was real humid outside. Wish I had gone for a swim instead, but I had a job interview in Winooski close by so couldn't go off to the y in Burlington. Well by the time I finished my walk I was drenched and I didn't even run. I had also bought a couple of things of yogurt, soda, and cottage cheese on my way home because I hadn't had lunch yet, and I love cottage cheese. Well I got to my building and pressed the up butt...

One of them will be a work experience at the Winooski library which is pretty close to me. I'll be doing a volunteer job there for a couple of days a week, and getting paid a stipend. That will be a good thing to do for a couple of months during the summer. The library isn't that far away from me at all. I also fi...

The last two days have been rainy, cloudy and blah, and so hasn't my mood. I let everything slide, and became a couch potato. I didn't really work on any of my goals. I didn't get much done in the way of exercise, writing, or houseowrk. I did read some though. <BR> <BR> Today though I did get in a good walk, and got going on some housework.

Perfect weather. Clear blue skies with no clouds what so ever, and no humidity today. A brisk day. I'm nodding off right now after a long walk, and not getting any sleep last night. I had a glass of ice tea right before I went to bed, and that kept me bouncing up and down. I hate that. Normally I only have a couple of glasses of coffee in the morning. I got a lot done last night, but I'm starting to feel the lack of sleep. <BR> <BR> Got mos...

I wanted to walk outside today because it's so gorgeous, but I talked myself into a swim instead. I'm glad I did. It feels good, although a walk would have as well. <BR> <BR> Yestarday got all my goals done except for the walking. I stayed within my calorie range. <BR> <BR> My goals for Monday are: <BR> <BR> 15 minutes of writing <BR> 15 minutes of reading <BR> 15 minutes of housework <BR> 10 minutes of strength training <BR> 30...

I did get out and walked or swam 4 of the 7 days. I also stayed within my calorie range 6 of the 7 days. The housework didn't quite pan out though.

I ran into a run of badluck, and never did get them. I also ended up leaving my mp3 player there. I have to call on that and go pick it up later today. I did get other stuff done at Walmart and other stores along the way. I counted them last night, and found I went through five towns, cities, and villages yestarday. All on one commute. <BR> <BR> I started where I live in the ciy of W... Thu, 8 May 2014 10:05:09 EST Wednesday May 7, 2014 Bright sunshine, and blue skies http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5689524 The sun is back and I'm happy to see it. I plan to get out later today, but this morning I have to make a few phone calls, and get some work done on the computer. I'm also waiting on a few phone calls. This afternoon though I plan on having a play date with my mp3 player and walking shoes. <BR> <BR> Monday I got alot done, and all my goals done as well. I stayed under the 2000 mark. I think I was in the pool longer then I should have been, but it felt really good. There weren't ...

I'm going into Burlington for two appointments, and to go swimming. That's my big plans lol. I'm also going to do some serious work on my writing when I get home, and some serious housecleaning. My work table looks like a small hurricane hit it. I take stuff out, and don't put it back lol. Now I don't have any place to work. I'm watching Rachel Ray and she's making a chicken dinner, that I'm not really interested in. I've tried a couple... Mon, 5 May 2014 09:52:37 EST Sunday May 4, 2014 The weather isn't the greatest today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5687289 It's been really cloudy all day today with no sunshine at all. It just started to rain now. I am not feeling very energetic today so I'm just slowly getting things done. I have to argue myself into doing them today. I feel like a naughty little kid just not wanting to do anything, and feel like throwing a temper tantrum.. I don't think anyone would hear though. Haven't you ever just wanted to throw a temper tantrum. <BR> <BR> Last week did fairly well on my reading goals. Didn't... Sun, 4 May 2014 15:27:10 EST Saturday May 3, 2014 Working out? or Play time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5686414 Alright so why do kids call it play time and we call it working out. Even the very name stresses most of us out. Have we gotten our work out done today? Have you worked out today. Work emplies doing something for money that you don't particulary love. Although alot of us do love the work we do. So a work out emplies doing something you don't like to do for exercise. I love to walk, but when I call it my work out I sometimes cringe and think I have to do so many laps, or miles befor...

I wonder if Summer is really going to come? Course when it does I'll be complaining about how hot it is lol. Anyways it rained yestarday but no thunder storms. <BR> <BR> Didn't get all my goals done yestarday. I also went way over the 2000 mark. I didn't get any writing done, or reading. I also didn't go out and exercise. I was lazy yestarday lol. <BR> <BR> My goals for Friday are: <BR> <BR> 15 minut...

I hope we get a nice thunderstorm later on. I love those. As long as I'm not out in them lol. Went grocery shopping earlier today and got all sorts of good stuff. I also bought a toaster. I threw my old one out before I moved because it didn't work right, and needed a thorough cleaning. Ever since I haven't bought one for one reason or another, but decided to today because I missed english muffins in the morning, an...

I finished my class. I o... Wed, 30 Apr 2014 08:43:44 EST
