Thanksgiving wasn't so scary

I thought I'd blow my calories all to hell today even though my mom has been cooking the "Heart Smart" way for over 30 years now (my grandparents all had to have low fat/low sodium diets and one was type 2 diabetic). We had a great turkey dinne... Read more

Ah another beautiful autumn day here. The mountains are turning a nice orange and gold as the leaves change and there is a bite in the air in the mornings. Haven't seen first frost yet but I can tell it's coming. We also have a dusting of f... Read more
Day 3 on EA Active
Thursday, October 08, 2009      5 comments

So far I'm enjoying this added Wii exercise program however it doesn't really burn a whole lot of calories I've noticed although I am sweating by the end of 25 minutes. I am also putting in some extra Wii Fit routines to get me to my 200 calori... Read more

Let's see it was another beautiful autumn day here. Cool in the morning (about 5C) and warmed up to about 14C or so, pretty decent for this time of year. I only had to work a half day (supposed to be off but another co-worker had a wedding to ... Read more

Well I broke out the EA Active finally and decided to do it on Medium intensity today (why start with Easy I've been working out for the last 4 months very consistantly). I am happy with it and I found I have a nack for the "Inline Skating" all... Read more

I am feeling pretty darned good. Hubster rented me Wii Fit Plus and I must say so far the price is looking ok enough that once we've paid for older daughter's band trip I can squeeze it in to the budget. I even set up a Mii for my cat, who by ... Read more

now I have to wait for the Ear, Nose and Throat specialist to call so he can put a scope in my throat and find out if there is a nodule on the larynx or if it is something else causing the loss of vocal range. If there is something there it cou... Read more

however it looks very likely to rain soon but that's fine my grass could stand a good watering. The weather has finally cooled to a tolerable level again and the afternoon sun is great. I will update on my voice on Wednesday after my docto... Read more
Thankful for family and friends
Sunday, September 27, 2009      1 comments

These last 2 weeks have made me realize how much I need my family and friends (both real life and online ones). I have been unable to speak above a whisper volume for 2 full weeks now and have gotten lots of support and advice. Having hubs... Read more

Grrrrr...I am nearing the end of day 3 on antibiotics and absolutly ZERO improvement in my voice even though I haven't spoken unless I had to all day today. I am at work but am refusing to do anything but paperwork or drive customers back to th... Read more

Nothing new to report. I am hoping that with the antibiotics I will have my voice back by the end of the weekend, if not it's back to the doctor to see what's up. I am amazed in my trips to walk-in and my own doc that none of them did a throat... Read more
Antibiotics and a voice???
Wednesday, September 23, 2009      4 comments

Great got in to see my regular doctor score 1 for me, he has prescribed antibiotics to see if that knocks the nasties out of my throat. He also gave me the great wisdom of be quiet as much as possible. Hmmmm my job is to sell stuff and wait on... Read more

I ran into my neighbour when going to pick up my youngest from school yesterday. She inquired as to how I was and such and of course I croaked "Ok" and she said "You got hit again?" (this losing my voice thing seems to happen every year). She ... Read more
Exercise can be a great thing
Thursday, September 17, 2009      1 comments

Even while sick I've found the time to fit in my workouts even though they are more difficult due to lower energy and a bit of difficulty breathing (I simply do lower impact). I feel better for doing it but if my illness were worse (I have larn... Read more
