Resting and De-Stressing

Monday, September 16, 2013

Well I was able to get the week off. emoticon God! I really need this time to rest and give my voice a break. So what I have done the past 2 days. Yesterday I went to Church, emoticon just rested, took Ginger Girl for 2 short walks. emoticon emoticon I can only do short walks, so we went for 2 different walks. Starting out slow, I have to be careful with my breathing right now. Will try each day to increase the walks a little longer. Oh Ginger Girl was just happy that we started walking again. emoticon

Today we slept in a little had a rough night with coughing. I had good meals and snacks all day. Made a knew recipe. Took Ginger for to walks and we went 5 mins. longer each time then we did yesterday. emoticon I took a drive down to the lake. I live not to far from Lake Eric. About 30 mins. I walked along the lake, sat for awhile. Watched the waves coming rushing in. I just love the sound and smell of the water. It was in the high 60's today, so it was a bit chilly by the lake, but oh so beautiful. emoticon I had to stop at Walmart to get Ginger some food. So I decide to do a little shopping. My undergarments are so darn big on me that just bunch up. Well hello I went from a size 14 to a 10. emoticon I always brought boring white cotton undergarments cuz that's all that came in my size. emoticon Well I went a bit crazy. I brought 3 packages, all kinds of bold, bright crazy colors with some really neat patterns. Then I brought a pair of PJ'S and a pair of slippers that were marked down. So I treated myself a bit. emoticon

The next few days....I am still going to rest, but continue on with the walks. I need to do some laundry and cleaning. Still keep my mouth closed. Not talking much. Resting that voice. May try another knew recipe later in the week.

Until next time. emoticon and emoticon Cathe

    sunds like you are taking good care of yourself and ginger. I love that you "splurged" on some things for yourself. 14 to 10 is amazing and should be celebrated with bright colors!

    I'm glad you felt good enough for a couple short walks.

    Very cool treating yourself to new undergarments. Makes you feel good all over!

    DH and too, a motorcycle trip in July, riding around all of the Great Lakes and into Canada. I absolutely LOVE looking out into water, smelling and feeling the breeze!
