Thursday Thoughts

Thursday, August 30, 2012      1 comments

Magnesium and stretching got me over yesterday's abdominal "charley horse". Today is a much better day. Which is good, because we're having a yard sale tomorrow and the next day. My 10 year old daughter is doing the bulk of the work. W... Read more

Wednesday Whimperings

Wednesday, August 29, 2012      2 comments

Today is a sucky day. Stop reading now if you only want rainbows and sunshine. My muscles like to cramp randomly. If they cramp, it is in a deathgrip that is only released after days of anti-inflammatories, extra magnesium, and stretching... Read more

Tuesday Twitterings

Tuesday, August 28, 2012      3 comments

After one week of camp food and no planned exercise (but lots of walking back and forth), I only gained one pound! Today's health goals: Eat clean. It is already 3:15 and I've already bombed on this goal because my daughter tried ou... Read more

Sleep

Monday, August 27, 2012      2 comments

After camp, you should have seen how tired all the camp staff were. Kids were pretty tired too. I have been sleeping, and sleeping and sleeping whenever I can. I know from doing some reading, that sleep is a busy time for your brain and... Read more

Slowly Getting Back into the Swing of Things

Sunday, August 26, 2012      5 comments

I knew that I would be tired after camp, so my goal had been to get today's Bible Club lesson done before I went. Except that I was so tired and busy trying to get ready to go to Bible camp that I wasn't able to finish the lesson. Last night I... Read more

I'm back from camp

Sunday, August 26, 2012      4 comments

Hello, everyone. I am home. The car is unpacked. The first load of laundry is running. My suitcase has been unpacked. I am tired but doing fine. We are all tired. To let you know just how tired we are, we were driving on the freeway on the way h... Read more

I'm Going AWOL for a Week

Saturday, August 18, 2012      4 comments

I'm going to be busy today packing up our family for a week long Bible camp. Tomorrow we'll leave directly from church to drive 3 hours to the camp. I'm all ready to teach 10 hours of Bible lessons to 9 - 12 year olds. My husband is still wo... Read more

Don't Let Your Flare Get You Down

Friday, August 17, 2012      0 comments

My body doesn't handle heat very well. I've puffed up like the Stay-Puft marshmallow man. Along with all the swelling comes pain. But I won't let my flare get me down. It takes extra concentration to try and block out the pain but I'm stayin... Read more

Modification? What Modification?!

Thursday, August 16, 2012      2 comments

Tonight in Zumba, our instructor asked me and another lady to lead a song with her. Zumba songs can have slightly different choreography depending on instructor so I carefully tried to watch her to see what moves she used. At the end of class ... Read more

The Trouble with Mary

Wednesday, August 15, 2012      3 comments

Little 4 year old Mary wasn't quite so cute last night when her mom let her free range in Zumba class. The instructor had to bring her up to the front to be safe, while mouthing to me "where is the mother?" After one song up there I could see th... Read more

There is Something About Mary

Tuesday, August 14, 2012      3 comments

Last night at cardio kickboxing/ boot camp, we had an unexpected visitor. A little 4 year old girl came running in, asked our instructor if she could "do that too" and proceeded to copy us. Her mother came running in shortly afterward to try an... Read more

Zumba Pin Ball

Monday, August 13, 2012      2 comments

No, there is not another kind of Zumba out there. We have a variety of people participating in Zumba and other fitness classes. On Saturday we had a man who comes on occasion. I honestly wouldn't have even noticed him except that in the cours... Read more

Being Selfish

Sunday, August 12, 2012      1 comments

I need to be more selfish. I need to think about keeping my body healthy. I need to selfishly give away the pound cake instead of giving in to pressure to take it home. I need to selfishly say no to the food that I crave but is not good for m... Read more

I have to act as if I am diabetic

Saturday, August 11, 2012      4 comments

Technically I'm "just" insulin resistant. But if I overdo the carbs my sugar goes way too high. I went to a potluck. There were carbs, carbs, sugary carbs, some veggies, carbs and more sugary carbs. I brought some chicken which was a good co... Read more

Chest Congestion

Friday, August 10, 2012      2 comments

A friend told me to exercise with a head cold but not a chest cold. I hadn't heard that before but decided that since I have a tendency to end up in the ER with inflammation in my chest, to listen to her. I've been off of my regular exercise r... Read more
