Nothing good about today. Asked My private duty client for a two month advance so I can pay half of the repair amount on my car. He'll let me know tomorrow.

Asked my landlady if I could use my damage deposit to pay my rent because my hours have been down over the holidays. They illegally used it to pay the oil bill. If I moved out tomorrow they would not have it to give me. So wrong! They also are supposed to pay it back with interest! I am very angry. Now I have to borrow from my son with no chance of paying him back for two months because of the advance for my car.

This has been a very bad week except for getting back to the gym. I had planned a good two hour session for tonight. but I pulled an extra shift this afternoon and did not have my things with me because I planned to come home before my evening shift.

Day Four is good! Boy it's hot here in Phoenix. I will be so glad when the cooler months return. It sure brings out one heck of a sweat when walking though, so that's a good thing. I got in 11,167 steps yesterday and I was really proud of myself for doing it. I had to be out walking after 10 PM to get them all in. I was going to get my 10K goal, no matter what. It felt good!
I even increased my walking this morning by 10 minutes. I had in over 5 K steps today by 10 AM. YAY!
Today is a GOOD day!

Day Three here and I'm moving along just fine. It feels so good to be doing something, ANYTHING to get healthier. Gone is the feeling of guilt and disgust at myself for doing nothing. I feel happier than I have in a while. I'm so glad that I've started posting on SP again. Life IS good!

Peter and I have made plans for Sunday. We'll be getting exercise walking along a cliff walk on the ocean in Maine. We've been eating out a lot on Sundays, but I have been very good. I think I am rubbing off on Peter. He joined Planet Fitness, too, but not the same one I go use.
I am having a great time with him and we really want to be together.

I'm developing a headache which I figured would happen if I didn't have caffeine today. My heart was much happier.

Yearly physical today. My weight is down 12 pounds from this time last year. My cholesterol is down 10 points. I'm under 200! I am thrilled. I did not want to take statins. My doctor was very pleased.

Accomplished a lot today. Did more in my bedroom/sewingroom so I have room to work. Changed my clothes from winter to summer and got rid of lots that are too big. Also got rid of all my large size patterns.
Made potato salad, cole slaw, and deviled eggs for dinner for the next three days. I won't be home again to cook until Wednesday. My schedule doesn't have very many hours, but I try to stay in Portsmouth to cut down on gas consumption.
Looked at my weight log to see where I was last year at this time because I go for my physical tomorrow. My weight is almost the same, but my measurements are smaller. My clothes certainly fit differently, so I'm guessing I have more muscle now. I am taking a long look at what I eat and how many calories I consume each day. I think I need to cut back unless I can get the exercise time back to where it was.

Drove a total of 64 miles this morning for a 1 minute blood draw for my physical on Monday. The closer labs are not open on Thursday and, of course, that is my only free morning. It was fasting blood work.

Working most of today to make up for being sick on Monday. I usually have Thursday clear until 3:15.

My interview went well today, but was interrupted because the interviewer had to deal with another matter. She did give me all the background investigation paperwork. I think I will actually be offered a job, but I don't know when.


My current job is really not giving me enough hours.

It's raining again and is very cold. We aren't supposed to see the sun again until Sunday morning and then the rain is going to move in again Sunday afternoon. We are going to need an ark soon. It sure makes getting up in the morning hard.


I got a call today about the application I put in at the nursing home. I'll call tomorrow as I got home too late tonight.

I hae been feeling yucky for two days. I don't know if I'm getting a cold or if it is just the weather. It has been cold and damp for two days and will continue to be all week. I have a scratchy throat and a runny nose, but I have also been cold for two days and that can make me feel like this. Time will tell.

I went to my aunt's funeral today and made arrangements with the cemetery person to relocate my dad's ashes to the correct spot. The cemetery person is a friend and he actually approached me to ask why Dad was buried in the walkway between rows. I told him that my sister had already dug the hole when we arrived and I didn't want to rock the boat.(I had already been accused of being high strung). Sherman will rebury my dad correctly and I guess I will make arrangements to have the headstone engraved since none of my siblings ever even go to the cemetery. He is supposed to be buried over my stepmother. Her stone is there and is complete, but there is no room for my dad. I can have the back done with his info. The people there today were his relatives by marriage and none of them knew that he was buried there. We did the burying ourselves long after his services.

Walked by myself again tonight. I think my landlady found it too hard, especially the last hill.

I did some sewing today and then decided to try to clean my room a little. I went through both unfinished sewing projects and my ironing basket. I got rid of the majority of what was there because everything is too big. I'm going to have to do some serious sewing.

Picked up a second application today for a nursing home. It's a small, Catholic run facility, so the aides should be more compassionate.

I put 86 miles on my car today and only worked 6 hours.

Bit the bullet and applied to an assisted living facility today. I lost another 3 hours every week because our new client wants the same person every day. They want me as a back-up. Ain't happening. I can't pay my bills with 16 hours of work. Even with my other two jobs the money is no where near enough.

I will pick up applications for a couple of other places tomorrow and Thursday. I am not a happy camper, but I didn't let it ruin my day. I stayed in range on everything and I even did some sewing today.

Lost a ton of hours at work AGAIN! I have only 18 this week. Our week starts on Saturday. so I've already lost those days.

Went to the gym this morning and my landlady and I walked tonight. I like this arrangement. I did fat burning on the treadmill this morning because I knew we would be doing cardio tonight. I also did strength machines.

Woke up with a killer headache this morning. The house was filled with noxious fumes. I went to my landlady's side and she said the water heater had been smoking all night. They pulled the fuse this morning, but by then my apartment was miserable to be in. I opened a window and the door. I had to leave for work and I felt awful. It took about 4 hours to clear my head and not feel yucky.

I spent the day cleaning my kitchen and cleaning the rabbit cages and the litter box. I hope I get to make up some of the hours I missed this weekend. I can't afford to lose 13 hours of pay.

Made it to the gym this morning. Did an hour on the treadmill at 20 min./mile at a 5% incline. I also did six strength training machines. It felt good.

Tonight my landlady and I walked 2.4 miles in 45 minutes. My legs will be killing me tomorrow.

I'm home tonight because the woman take care of is in the hospital. I spoke with her daughter today and I don't think she'll be home for a while unless they send her home on hospice. It sounds like she had another stroke. Her left side is affected and since her right arm is permanently broken, she won't be able to stand holding on to a grab bar anymore.

Driving was really frustrating today. At 6:30 this morning a turkey decided to play chicken with me. I was doing 55! I slowed, but couldn't stop because the guy behind me was tailgating. The turkey flew just as it reached my driver side bumper. It did manage to scratch my new paint job.

While I had one of my clients in the car, one car came very close to running into us and then another car pulled out from a stop sign right in front of me. Luckily no one was tailgating me as I had to slam on my brakes. When I was driving from Newmarket to Portsmouth, two guys decided to play cat and mouse in rush hour traffic. They were obviously chasing each other, cutting in and out of lanes without using directionals, and just generally being idiots. They were grown men, not teenagers. I can't believe how stupid and careless drivers are becoming.

I like having someone to walk with now. It was a brisk walk today with the wind. We did it though. By next week we should be able to combine our two shorter walks into one. Linda said her boyfriend told her she was doing too much because she did the treadmill in the morning and walked with me at night. She told him to mind his own business. He is in terrible shape, very overweight and arthritis in both hips) and I think it makes him jealous that she can do so much. She has diabetes and wants to keep it under control with just pills.

Raining tonight - no walking. I'm so tired of this weather. We are supposed to have clouds and/or rain through Mother's Day. Tomorrow is only supposed to be in the 40s. I want spring for more than a day at a time. I'm fully expecting to go from cold to hot in one day.

Walking tonight felt really good. I like walking better than the gym when the weather is nice. I hope my landlady can build up her stamina so we can go longer distances. She is also working on a treadmill so she should be good to go.
I just need to put together a weight/strength program.

My car looks great. They even detailed it, so the inside looks almost as good as the outside.
It's nice to have my fuel efficient car back. The loaner cost me $122 for a week just foe gas. We are just pennies from four dollars a gallon.

I don't know what I'm going to do about my job when the gas hits 4 or 5 dollars. Some jobs require 30 miles of driving just to get there and when the pay is only $12 an hour there isn't much profit. I don't know how the women with bigger cars make any money.

Starting to get my act together but it is hard. It's going to take me a couple of months to get my finances back on track. I think that is what is messing up everything. I don't feel like doing anything. I will walk or do the elliptical tomorrow. I'm hoping we don't get rain because I'm really looking forward to walking.

I've had a tough few days. I'm not sure what has gone wrong, but I realized that I'm eating more, but I can't get filled up. I finally realized - it's not physical hunger. Something is missing from my life and I'm still working on finding out what it is. I have a lot going on right now with the car, finances, lack of exercise time, and not eating right. I think I need to pick one thing at a time to work on and see if I can fine the real problem.

My car is supposed to be done at the body shop tomorrow, but when I saw a picture this morning(I get an update photo every day) it was still in pieces and they were waiting for parts. It had to be painted by today in order to get it back on time. I'm paying for a rental and I don't want to have to pay for the weekend.

We have finally had two days of warm weather, but it rained. The sun will be out tomorrow, but it is going to be cooler.

Sleep is good. Hope you get some soon.

I took last Friday off and my main goal was to sleep in. Did it!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Got a few things done while I was home, but my landlords were here all day working on my bathroom. They used my kitchen as a staging area so I couldn't get rabbit cages cleaned or the litter box done. Now I'll have to do them when I get home at night or they will get too smelly.I was supposed to get a pedestal sink, but the plumbing is wrong so I'm stuck with an ugly, outdated vanity. I'm very disappointed.

I did reserve my rental car for next week while my car is being repaired from the accident. It's only $156. Not too bad. Unfortunately, I have to pay it because my agent left it off my policy. I will add it to my new policy in June.

I'm trying to find a morning that I can skip my guy in Portsmouth and sleep in. It was supposed to be this morning, but he had surgery yesterday and I really felt I needed to be there this morning. My next choice was Saturday because I could have slept until ten, but work just called and needs me to do an extra shift on Saturday. Maybe I'll still do that day because I could sleep until 8:30 which is three more hours than I usually get. I'll work something out. I'm really tired.

That is a tough schedule. Hope you figure out how to get everything in.

Love your new table.

My work schedule changed and now I work every night until 10. That means I get home at 10:40! Not much time for the computer. Punch in my exercise, water, play trivia, and then spin the wheel. Home on Thursday so I will catch up then.

Sorry that you didn't get to walk and that you're sick.. I'm allergic to sulfa drugs, so not a good option for me! Silly bunny! Glad you were able to find him.

I bought a new table today so had to move the old one. It was a bench type, so it had not been cleaned under since we moved in. Took a little over an hour to move out the old one and clean the wall and the floor. Looks really good right now. I'll put the new table together tomorrow and set it up. Kinda looking forward to it!

Didn't get to walk tonight. My landlady went to pick up a treadmill.


Woke up this morning with a raging UTI. Honestly, no symptoms until this morning, but already blood in my urine. On sulfa drugs for five days.

One of my rabbits escaped his cage this morning just before I was supposed to leave for work. He is an inside bunny, but he always heads for my bedroom which is a treasure trove of places to hide. Luckily, I was able to lure him with lettuce. What a wise guy!

I am going to walk with friend tomorrow. We normally meet at 4:45 and work out next to each other on the elliptical. But, since I have tomorrow off and she works from home, we can meet after her kids go to school and do something different. We will walk on the green belt. Not sure how far or for how long, but it will be a nice change. Supposed to get up to 60' (almost) and rain. Hopefully the rain will hold off until after the walk and my DD's softball game.

Yeah, I really liked Moses. He's looking pretty good.

Took my car for the estimate today. $2283 and change. Glad I'm only responsible for the $500 deductible. The estimator didn't dare try to open the hood to check for interior damage because he was afraid it wouldn't close and then I'd be without a car. So there may be more damage found when they fix it. It goes in the 25 and will take five days. I have to pay for a rental.

Today was sunny, but breezy. My landlady and I went for a walk tonight. She's been anxious to get out and walk. We did 1.7 miles in 32 minutes. It was a little fast for both of us, but we made it. We're going again tomorrow night so I won't get to the gym. I'll do some weights here after we walk. I like being able to talk with another adult and the walking is a nice break from the elliptical. We'll get more distance as she gets used to exercise and I can still go to the gym three times a week.

I did watch BL last night. That was a kicking 5k! Dang! I'm really glad I didn't have to do that! It was really cool of Moses to sacrifice himself for that lady...can't remember her name....Hannah's sister.

Weather was off and on here. Cold, windy, rain, sun. One after the other or all at once. Not going to be nice again until maybe Friday or Saturday. Taking Friday off just because. Hope the weather is nice enough for me to enjoy shopping.

Today was really nasty. It rained most of the day with a gusty wind and low temperatures. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny, but we don't get out of the 50's again.

I'm going to get an estimate on the car tomorrow. I have most of the day off and I would much rather stick around here and sew. It's just that I can't count on my schedule so I have to go when I can.

Did you watch the BL last night? I couldn't believe the 5K they ran, especially up the dune. The weigh in was really a shocker! How about them jumping off the building? No way!

I'm glad to hear that you hit the deer's hind legs. My mom broadsided a horse once and landed in the hospital. Got a new car out of it, but that is not the way to get a new car!

Our weather has been very Springy...meaning rain one minute, then sunshine, then wind. It's supposed to rain with a high of 54 tomorrow. Our nicest day will be about 64 with only a 30% chance of rain. I'm ready for 80+ degree weather.

Today was not quite as nice as yesterday, but better than tomorrow is going to be. We have rain predicted. It's also going to be colder for the rest of the week. Just when there was some light at the end of the tunnel.
Trying to find some me time. Hours are short at work, but because of the travel time I don't come home until my last shift which ends at 5:30. Tomorrow is different, however. I finish at 2:00. If I go to the gym and then home, I should be home by 4:30. Thursday I work from 7:30 until 9:30 and then 4 to 4:30. I have to go to Manchester to get an estimate for fixing my car. I hope it doesn't take long so I have some time at home.
I have been doing a lot more reading lately. It's been fun.

Today was a beautiful day here. It hit 78 in Portsmouth when the sun finally came out this afternoon. No jacket and car window wide open. My house is actually warm.

Hitting the deer was really weird. I never even saw it until the hit. It was in a section where there are often deer, but This one darted with no warning. A couple, who witnessed the accident, came back to be sure I was okay. They said there were actually two deer and I hit the second. I hit it in the hind legs which is the best way to hit a large animal because they are less likely to hit the windshield. My lower bumper, hood, and left fender all need to be replaced. My door doesn't open correctly because the bumper is pushed back. My headlight didn't break but the bulb doesn't work. I can drive the car.
I called my insurance company today and they have already contacted one of their approved garages to do the repairs. If I use them the work is guaranteed for as long as I own my car. I'll have to pay the deductible and unfortunately I don't have car rental because my agent forgot to put it in my policy. I hope they can do the work quickly.
My back is sore and Tylenol has not helped today, but I'll see how it is tomorrow. I certainly didn't want to go to the emergency room today. The insurance company may insist on it when I talk to my adjuster tomorrow.

The movie HOP looks cute.

Great job on choosing well at dinner.

The girls should have used their trainer on BL. They said that on Season 3, Bob was down to just Eric. If Eric had gone home, Bob would have as well.

I did watch the week when the two girls didn't use him. They were really stupid. I suspect they will either bring him back next season or find a different fourth trainer. I wonder what would happen if either Bob or Jillian lost their whole team?

Tim and I went out to dinner and then to see HOP. What a cute movie. I laughed out loud. I didn't make terrible choices at dinner and I certainly didn't feel stuffed when I left despite having a salad and a mini dessert treat.

That's a lot of driving!

My DH would express his displeasure if I cooked a vegetarian dinner. That is, if I told him about it!

Having the whole red team hone isn't all Bret's fault. They chose not to use him for one full week. It's too bad he had to leave too. Wonder what that'll do to their plans for next season.

Crazy day at work. Started in Portsmouth, than 22 miles to Rochester, and finally 22 miles back to Portsmouth. It's a 26 mile drive from my house to Portsmouth. No wonder I fill up so often.

I like being home for dinner because I can cook something healthy. My Vegetarian Times has several recipes for using oriental noodles. I got the ingredients to try a couple of them. Chinese food is hard for me to find because of the salt and MSG. There is also a recipe for using Bok Choy which I really love.


I'm sorry that girl got kicked off BL last night, but she is doing better at home. Does it seem strange that the entire red team is gone and they had one of the new coaches? He had a whole week to help her figure out why she wasn't losing weight and he couldn't do it.

I'll spread the secret far and wide...if I ever figure it out.

Congrats on being in on everything! That is outstanding!

I'm watching BL right now too! Only into it a half hour, so not a lot has happened yet.

Too bad about work. I just scheduled a day off next week so I can have a rest. So tired of being tired!

If you figure out how to get enough sleep please pass the secret along.

Great day diet wise today. Met my goal on everything! That has never happened.

I'm actually watching The Biggest Loser. I really don't have a favorite this time. It has been fun to follow it for a change.

Work is a drag right now. I feel like I spend a lot of time doing nothing and there is so much I want to get done at home. My hours are short again because a couple of my clients dropped our services for financial reasons. I was suppose to pick up one new client, but there is cigarette smoking and I can't stand to be around even the smell. I have a couple of clients on an as needed basis, but that doesn't help me with my budget. Now that I have to pay health insurance I have to make a certain amount of money each week.

Dang! No wonder you're tired. Glad that the storm wasn't as bad as predicted. We had two days of gorgeous 70' weather. Since then it's been cold and rainy.

I made it to the gym on Sunday, but not until 8:00 at night. That's late for me. Then I turned around and met my friend at the gym at 4:45 the next morning (today). Hoping to get to bed early tonight.

What a tiring three days from Friday to Sunday. The storm wasn't as bad as predicted, but I did have to cancel my first three clients. I worked until 10 Friday night and then came home and collapsed in bed so I could get up at 5:30 Saturday and work until 11. Sunday I slept an hour later(with permission) and worked until 9:30. I couldn't wait to get home and sleep.

Today was my regular schedule including gym time. I did my usual hour on the elliptical and 5 strength machines.

I can do the morning exercise if I have someone meeting me there. I don't do mornings so evening exercise is easier for me. Glad to hear that you'll be able to exercise in the morning next week.

So good to hear that you made it home before the storm hit. Storms are okay...if you can wait them out at home...with heat and food and such.

Having a hard time with exercising at night. I'm definitely a morning exerciser. I'm just too tired by night. My schedule is on track for me to exercise in the morning next week.

The storm was just getting cranked up when I left Portsmouth tonight. Nothing happening by the time I got home, but we are reportedly in for a good one.

It's nice to get some stuff cleaned up. Hope you were able to get it all done. Housework can be a good workout too!

No elliptical today, but I did do housework. I really needed to get my kitchen straightened out. I had no counters cleared and the table was among the missing. I still need to do dishes and vacuum, but it looks a lot better.

The nor'easter is definitely coming. The only question is where it centers. It will be the difference between 3 inches or a foot of snow! It should pretty much melt over the weekend, but driving on Friday will not be fun.

I took my kids to the gym after dinner. That was my second trip to the gym today, so I walked at a slow pace for 45 minutes.

I'm so tired of the snow and the cold and the rain and the wind. I hope they're wrong about the snow!

Did my first substitute gym day. It's a terrible time to go because the place is packed. Luckily the ellipticals are not as popular as the treadmills. Could use all of the machines though without having to wait.

We are supposed to have a nor'easter coming in on Friday. They are saying it will be snow, but they aren't saying how much. I can't wait. I'm working all day which means I'll be driving in it.
