I get by with a little help from my friends.

I appreciate your comments on my blogs if I'm grumpy, venting or down in the dumps. You all know I try not to be blue. You've become the backseat passengers to my ride into the future. For example, here I sit trying to be the calm wife and ... Read more

Strength and support. Finding and giving.

There is always humor in my life. I can't escape it nor do I want to. Never leave us alone in a medical room. I usually play with any plastic parts models and we make great fun of the charts on walls. This one had an especially fun chart ... Read more

How much exercise IS carpet cleaning? Busy day. Trying to clear my head.

Sunday, July 26, 2015      5 comments

According to my tracker, it's about 400 calories but I think I could have made it more. I likened it to waltzing, a slow dance plus lunges and seated rows with bands. I'm not sure what else. It took me about 4 hours of pushing back and for... Read more

Bought myslf a carpet cleaner. Lookout dirt!

I chose a thick, beach-sand colored carpet. The color of Miami Beach, Ocean City, or Honolulu sand. I like light and airy. I like to sit on the floor. That was back in'99. When children had grown up. When we took our shoes off when we ente... Read more

Getting my act together. 37 days from my latest goal

Saturday, July 25, 2015      8 comments

It's still a struggle to get going to the gym on my non-trainer days. I make excuses to myself. I've got 6 pounds to Onderland and have been in this position before; exactly a year ago. Motivation needs to kick in so I can get past that hurdle... Read more

Bright spot in a cra%%y week

I called for my now 2 year old grandson to wish him a happy birthday. Try talking to a 2 year old who has discovered the smartphone. I have no idea what he said except "Nana" and he hung up. My DD calls me back to inform me he is going to be... Read more

The woman in the mirror looks a bit different

I'm not a scale person. For one, I own a cheap scale. It works to ensure my bags are not overweight for the planes I fly. If I step off and back on, I guarantee there will be a change in a pound or two. My scale has ranged from 206 to 210-... Read more

Update on that job I have been complaining about since I got it. In case you were curious.

Not to long ago, amidst the chaos and heartbreak I've been living in, I realized I'd grown accustomed to the place. Don't get me wrong, it's still full problems but I found (and heard) I'd made a huge difference. Read more

We spent the afternoon at the doctors then the evening in the ER and got home at 1 am. DH is doing better than I thought but the pain is becoming debilitating. In easy lingo he has calcifications in his insides destroying some organs. The jury i... Read more

Found: abdominal muscles and 1 new exercise

Sunday, July 12, 2015      13 comments

It's tough working all around those acquired and age related injuries. I have compensated so much that my back takes over for almost any exercise I do and yells at me after every workout. On my evaluation, Mike said "Lay flat on your back and li... Read more

I have the wisdom and the humor. Grant me the strength to not get too frustrated.

I enjoyed the gym with a vengeance this morning. I'm trying to commit myself to a sturdy 4 days a week. I need to buy new clothes. Awesome. I'm also in discomfort now. It's tough to do all this when you've destroyed every joint in your bo... Read more

Keeping it light. NSV

We were out of milk and the only store on the way home is a danger zone. I grabbed a cart and decided I'd head to the fruit/milk aisle and run away. It was dinner time, I had a frustrating day and no solid meal plan. DANGER! Strawberries for... Read more

Sing: Everything's better, down where it's wetter...under the sea! Pool exercises

Wednesday, July 08, 2015      6 comments

My buddy FIFIFRIZZLE kept shouting "Go in the pool!" It turns out that my "sea" exercises are spot on as when on "land" my knees are not forgiving and my back takes over for everything. No one realizes how out of shape I really am as I look he... Read more

Funky word, huh? I like it. Moniker AKA (also known as) Nickname Handle (Breaker 1-9; what's your handle?) I've become an escape artist of sorts. I am the supervisor on-call this weekend so need to be ready to find coverage for... Read more
