No exercise today. I worked at my volunteer job and then went back into town this evening for a dinner at Church for our Pastor who is going to study in Oxford/England for the next 8 weeks. He will be missed but the President of the Baptist College in Hannibal will cover for him so that will be nice.

I will be back to the bike and treadmill in the morning.

Hugs, M

I either get them posted here or on my fitness tracker. I have been exercising just busy getting ready for the company and today, Dad was not doing well so made a trip to Hannibal this morning.

For the record 60 minutes today - Biking!

Fresh fish for dinner tonight, sounds like a delicious meal. Hope you enjoy it. I think it's time for me and my DH to get our fishing license and get out there too.
I miss my mom too, Sunny. She will be gone 6 years on June 5th. I appreciate her more now then ever. Funny how life goes...
My daughter and I are THINKING about meeting at the high school track today and doing some walk/running. Hope to be back here today to post. Enjoy.

I also miss my Mom a lot when I am sewing. She died of complications as a result of Leukemia in 1985 and there are times it still feels like yesterday. When I am sewing, I often think about how she would have a great idea about a pattern - what fabric would be best and how it would make up.

Great day fishing. Caught a whole stringer full. We threw back all but 4 which I will fix for DH and I tomorrow evening. We are both pooped.

Do have a lovely Mother's Day.

I have sewn all of my life. My Mother was a beautiful seamstress and taught me to sew. I haven't sewn much the past few years but knew it was something I probably go back to someday when I had time & now that I am retired, I have some time. I am making a dressy top and pants for the wedding in a spring green. I am also making Alex a dress and a jacket. The dress is finished and the jacket is almost done. I will take photos of us the day of the wedding. I hope to get all of it done by mid week next week. Sewing brings such great memories of Mother & I when we used to sew together.

I have been so wrapped up in the sewing, I haven't gotten my exercise. Tomorrow, we are going fishing so will get some exercise down at the lake.

Hugs to you, Sunny

5/8 - Biked 60 minutes, Walked 40, and strength training (resistance bands) 20 minutes for a total of 120.

I feel great and I know you do too.

DH got the garden tilled and planted the tomatoes, jalapeņos, cucumbers and squashes.
Tomorrow he wants to plant the corn and potatoes (late but will proceed with planting them).
I did plant some more cilantro this morning as some of it did not come up. Hopefully the replanting will help.

See you tomorrow. Sunny

Connie, the best thing you can do it talk to one of the Social Workers at the hospital or the Nursing Home to see what they recommend. So sorry - I just hate that this is happening to you all.

I went to lunch with some Sister in Faith and it was such a joy.

I am off to town again with DH shortly - going to his cousins for dinner.

Sunny, I have been having a really hard time getting going the past 6-8 months but thankfully my sister has been calling me lately and pushing me to jump on the elliptical and thus putting in a half hour a few times a week. It has been helping but I still need that "desire" to do it for myself.
You are right, it's the medicare that is cutting dad off because he has been in hospital or convalescent since Dec. his benefits are running out. He's not ready to go home but nothing we can do. His wife will be able to help but not total care. We are all trying to figure out if there are programs out there to help out. I am thinking that if he goes home he will end up right back to the hospital. He's going in circles.
I have to work today so probably won't get my cardio in but get plenty of exercise in at work.
Happy Friday!

I think it all has to do with what medicare says he needs for rehab. If rehab can't be done in "said amount of time", I don't they they care. Sad, isn't it?

How awesome though that he walked! That is terrific and definitely a step forward. Is he off of the feeding tube completely? Will you Step Mother be able to provide the care? I sure hope so.

I walked 45 minutes this morning and still have a work out video to do but just can't get going.

Take care and do have a Fab Friday.

Dad is doing better, mentally, and he walked (walker) 140 ft yesterday. Never thought I would see that! I think his insurance has a time limit on his time spent at the convalescent and it is looking like his time to go home is 4/15. I know he is not ready to go home, stupid insurance now a days. It's a shame because my dad who has insurance and medicare and has worked hard all his life has to leave. I don't understand. We are crossing our fingers that he dramatically improves soon.
I will be back later to post exercise. Hugs.

Today 30 min on elliptical and 30 plus minutes painting.

Cool.

I exercised yesterday but was in a car all day today. Tomorrow, volunteer day but will walk
in the halls at the hospital.

How was your Dad today? Dad is about the same - mostly just so, so days but so thankful for each one.
