Catching Up - Almost May

Sunday, April 29, 2012

There is so much going on right now... full plate and it's not even calories.
Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.-- John Lennon

First, I'm still in the 130's, 132.6 this morning. I can't seem to get rid of these last 10 pounds, but I'm not quitting.

Second, E has to go to Vancouver for surgery to remove a tumor in her leg. It's not cancer, but it has a life of it's own and everyone wants it out. That happens on Friday, and with tests the day before we need to leave home on Thursday. So, E's Mom thought it would be a good time for a visit to the west coast and she arrived today, from Nova Scotia. She is staying for a month!

I burned a gazillion calories doing housework yesterday.

I have Zumba in my life now and it's all good. I'm using the Wii Zumba 2 game to burn calories and have fun. I even went to a couple of Zumba classes! The first one nearly killed me, even my fingernails felt like they had had a workout. The next time I went to the Zumba Gold class. Oh my supernovas it was great fun. If you haven't tried Zumba... go do it right now!

I'm keeping up with about 10,000 steps a day. March and a good part of April were not so good due to getting sick and then going on holidays, but I'm getting back in the swing and I'm determined. See my SP front page for more details on my virtual walk to Newfoundland.

I've still got this crazy painful frozen shoulder. I get another MRI guided cortisone shot in two weeks and another one a few weeks after that. I'm also getting some intense massage therapy. I think it's helping a little. I can hardly move the arm without a ton of pain but I'm trying not to think about it.

I wish I didn't use the word I so much.

I have a gorgeous new azalea and I'm wondering if I should plant it in a big pot or directly into the garden.

The garden... egads there is another story.

Well, Mom-in-law calls.

I hope you, my SP friends, are all well and know that I love to keep up with your happenings. Just don't forget about me because I haven't forgot about you. Hugs all round.

    I've been loving the zumba for wii too, and I am stuck in the 130's and not moving a BIT either. Oh well, I'm keeping happy and busy, and it sounds like you are too!
