Since I have been having "self-generated showers" I haven't been visited recently. But, when I was, I found activity, stretching, movement usually helped and it killed my appetite. Is this what you were asking?

Hey Bobbie--I'll be ok once the medical people figure out what is actually wrong. It is a perfectly beautiful day today--90's! Well above what we should be getting this time of the year (60's-70. One Doctor done, another this afternoon--cat scan and eye doctor tomorrow--we're rolling along here! How'd you make out?

It has been raining nonstop since Saturday here, so I (tired of being unable to walk) got a free week's trial at my local Snap Fitness and managed to get in a workout last night and today. :D

That's the lion I guess! It's a nice sunny day today and it may warm to the 50's. A nice change from the cold. It's still all uphill from here! Warmer temps are inevitable and then we'll be looking for some relief from the humidity and heat! I love the natural cycles we have from the seasons. Life is great! What a wonderful world we have.

I love water striders! I also like watching those waterbugs that skim the surface and dive--the ones that carry the bubble of air about. They are very cool.
Me? Today I am positive that I am positively exhausted! I am also positive that it was an absolutely beautiful, sunny and warmish day (upper 50's). My daughter called me from college today to say she may have miscalculated the temps when she decided to go out in short sleeves and shorts and (ready/) SANDELS! It was 8am and the temps were still in the 30's and she was freezing walking to class.

I went outside today for a walk--first time I've spent any real time outdoors for exercise since--before I got sick. I'm now almost 1 month out of the hospital too--and I'm not having to use the inhaler as often. I'm getting better----I walked 5 miles today (maybe a bit more) in around 75 minutes. I had to go pick up some papers for my daughter at a school and I wanted to exercise today so I combined both. If I had driven to the school, it would have been 20-25 minutes round trip--using gas and time not well spent. So I walked there instead and it is a beautiful, not too cold day. What did you do today that made you smile?

It's abeautiful, sunny day and the High School Percussion Ensemble in which my is a member did indeed win the two competitions this weekend. They are now the Northeast champions in their class in Winter Guard International, (Saturdays competition). The finals for the WGI are in Mid April. The other circuit (a new england one) has their finals at the end of this month. Their show is wonderful and the kids in the group are the most delightful group of teens. I always have fun. emoticon

It is a beautiful, sunny day and I did 6 miles today (indoor walking). It's getting warmer too and should be a perfect weekend. I'm excited because I am working with the High school percussion team as well. Two shows---and I think they will be crowned the Northeast WGI champions --world class concert percussion--on Saturday. Cool stuff!

A getaway sounds nice. PJ--great on the walk. I wouldn't walk in the rain, but that's just me. I applaud all you die hard rain and all weather walkers.
I got in a total of 5 WATP miles today. I've started to pick up the pace and I got a new one today which moves pretty fast. I also did a bit of in place jogging--maybe a minute but it's a start.

when my daughter does wii fit, she's 10, I stand beside her and do it too, Sometimes I can stand on the board and do things, and sometimes the things they do I can't because I don't feel what the ole feet are doing , but I pretend I'm doing it with her by just standing on the floor.We call it moma and daughter time.

Thanks Gem - the blog will be a work in progress throughout the day - read as he is having trouble keeping it short of a novella.

It has been a great year!

Yeah, the non-broken arm. I tried to use the cast to steady the ball, but that didn't work. Ended up hoisting the ball up to my chest, and when I released, my hand was above the ball instead of underneath. It looked really strange and of coarse we were against the top team.

I hate to say this, but your son is right. Were you bowling with the non-broken arm? Maybe you should always do that. Congrats on the great scores! I am a terrible bowler. My average is around 70.

I bowled tonight. My average is 127. I bowled 135, 165 and 127. My son told me I should have broke my arm sooner. I was so nervous, but ended up alright. emoticon

Can't wait till Tuesday. Broke wrist last Wed., but doing so good, gonna try to bowl with one hand--I like challenges. I have to pay for the games whether I bowl or not, so I might as well try.

My prayers are with you. You are doing an aweful lot to help you family-Kudos to you! Don't forget to take care of yourself, though. It's difficult to take care of others when you're run down, sick, and burned out. Remember, there are a lot of resources out there to help you.

Yesterday, I got my brows waxed and a trim on my hair. I did something for me to feel better about myself. I help as a caretaker in my family for two ill members. My father and my sister. My fathers chronic lymphatic leukemia came back after being in remission for many yrs. My sister was diagnosed with esophgeous cancer in Sept. In prayer , we are trying to be hopeful, and we need strength for our
whole family. I know this is affecting my weight loss journey at the moment. I'll keep hanging in
there.

I don't think I would call it fun, but it has different exercises every day that target a different area. Each video is a max. of 10 min. It's recommended to have a ball and weights (I have 2lb.) to help with the exercises, but they say you can still do it if you don't have those things.
I like it. It has opened my eyes to different exercises than the ones that I normally do.

My positives so far this week: We got a Wii for Christmas and in that I got the Dance Dance Revolution 2. Yesterday, I tackled it and am learning how it works--great workout! I didn't gain weight over the holidays (it helped that I had the crud, but it worked in my favor). I'm doing the SP bootcamp and so far it's going well.

I'm ready for a fresh New Year. I not in a depression like I was last winter. I feel good.
I do take perscribed medications for maintence. I have great doctors and support. I have a loving and supportive husband also. We have been married 20 1/2 years. My animals are my children. They are my pride and joy. They also are a great comfort when I am feeling down. All of us are close knit family. I do not have children of my own, due to side-effects of medication that I have to take for life. The side-effects can cause birth defects or death, and I cannot be without my meds.
Part of my weight gain is from the medication. These meds cause weight gain, amongst other things.
I am with SPARKPEOPLE, and I rejoined Curves Dec. 10, 2008. My doctor gave me a dietician also. I see her once a month. Wish me luck emoticon
I go to CURVES MWF! emoticon
Have a great day tomorrow.
