Feeling pretty good

Sunday, June 14, 2009

Just spent a little over an hour in the pool with Jenn. There are two pools here and the smaller one was empty and we had it to ourselves until the last few minutes. Did some swimming and exercising to loosen up since it has been a while since I've done much. Knees feel pretty good. Hope to be able to do this at least 3-4 times a week.

Took hubby to ER this morning. He had an earache this week and went to the doctor Wednesday. Got antibiotics but was not getting any relief. Was up and down last night putting hot compresses on the ear and alternating tylenol and motrin. But by 7:00 a.m. he was in such pain I took him to the ER. He has an inner ear infection and they gave him three shots for pain and one of antibiotics, plus an oral antibiotic and scripts for pain, oral antibiotics and ear drop antibiotics. He is off work today and maybe tomorrow.

I have decided to study the diet plans on spark people and find something I can do. Atkins has always worked for me in the past, but I cannot seem to get past a few days without feeling hungry. When I get like that I eat until I find something that satisfies me, then I feel bad for eating all the bad stuff. I did get on the scales this week and I am up 3 lb. since the weekend, so now I have a 6 lb. loss, which I am happy to still be showing a loss at this point.

Took grandson to see "Up" yesterday. It was really cute and he sat still for the entire move - pretty good for a 3 year old.

Hope everyone has a great week.

    Hi Billi,

    I sure hope hubby will be feeling better soon! Having a sore, throbbing ear is terrible!

    Yea to you and Jenn for doing the exercises in the water! I'm glad your knees are feeling better. I was a bit concerned when I talked to you at the last team dinner. Knees can be tricky and oh so painful!

    The movie UP has gotten great reviews. My hubby and I watched the Beverly Hill Chihuahua last night and it was very cute! I'd like to see UP and I don't have any grandchildren!

    Have a great day!
