I had to run errands yesterday which actually caused me to go in several big circles, but as a result I managed to get 2 & 1/2 miles in!!! It's not a personal record (I don't think) but it's a big deal for me. I'm sure a time will come when I can do that in one go instead of over the course of a day...but at this point it still puts a BIG smile on my face & I feel a sense of accomplishment!

Fall is coming & winter right behind it. Not too excited about that!

Have a great Tuesday everyone!

I've been sleeping a lot since we got back from Europe but I feel like I'm finally starting to get back on schedule - hmmmm, 6 days later! That's what I call a 'crash landing' haha!

Well after the car show I fell into bed and slept for near on 9 hrs. I have a few pictures to process and will put up a blog later in the week.

BTW, so cars dated back to around the 1920

I haven't been participating in this chat but here I am now and hope to continue - I just returned from a 5-week trip in Europe - mostly Germany but we spent 4 days in Prague - and this time the return to 'real life' has been like a crash landing - the hardest time I've ever had getting readjusted to the time zone!! Probably due to being older than I've ever been, haha! Seriously, as each decade passes, I can see a major difference, even though I am still kicking around and much more active than many/most people my age. But as much as I'd like to defy reality, the age factor does have an impact!!

I gained weight on my trip - body hasn't completely adjusted so I'm not sure just how much but somewhere around 10-15 lbs - eeeek!! The additional weight is making my foot problems much worse so walking is harder so I'll be focusing on that for awhile. I have an additional challenge with leg veins that are collapsing so will be resuming treatments for that, which limits the type and amount of exercise I can do [in addition to the limits from arthritis] so have to rely on managing my food intake for weight management - once my treatments are finished and my veins heal up, I hope to get back to doing more exercise again, which definitely helps with weight management!

Today my goals are to finish unpacking and re-organize my 'stuff' - catch up with household things like laundry, cleaning - and get caught up with my job. I teach online so it's a blessing and a curse at the same time. I'm very grateful for my job, which is flexible enough to go trotting around another continent for 5 weeks without needing to take 'time off' from work, but it also chains me to the computer and sedentary life is not a good way to go!! With a new set of classes starting tomorrow, I have a lot of stuff to do for the next week or two but then things will settle back down.

Sorry to write so much but I wanted to enter the discussion and thought it best to include a little more about me rather than just posting a sentence or two. Have a great day everyone and good luck with all your goals - hope the weather cooperates for your car show, Trev!!

Did very well on the third test, which is supposed to be the hardest. Got one wrong and all the bonus right so I got 101!!! One of the nurses said that in the year since she'd been there no on had every gotten a straight 100 (without help of the bonus question) and today the curse was busted. Quite a few got everything right and got 104 and one got just the 100. There was also a few of us that got 101 too.

The class is dwindling in size. We were supposed to have 20, but only started with 18. Then one left (no one knows if it were voluntary or not). Today I got in and realized that 2 more didn't show. One was in the ER and would miss too much so she has to re-take the class. The other, I don't know. When I was leaving, another one was saying goodbye and crying, so I guess she's done too.

hoping for good news Krys.

My cat is back home. My nephew broke my car so I have to rely on my brother to get me to work and I was 5 minutes late yesterday. Thankfully they allow is 15 minutes. Have a dr appt next week and he will not be happy with me not looking forward to getting chewed out.

Off to get ready for work I am sure it will be busy. Take steps for me!!

I think that the reason I'm waking up early in the morning with horrible Charely Horses is because I'm not having enough time to walk all the time like I usually do, let alone do yoga and strength training. I miss this. Went on the first walk since training started with hubby and it was actually tough. I'm just so out of it. I just have to remember not to over do it when it's over and I can finally exercise again.

So Trev...did you get any shots of the moon? Have you posted them online anywhere?

Walking_Wonder...your hike sounds more like an adventure! And thanks for the info on your crafting as well! It's craft show season now that Christmas is less than 3 months away. The list of the Fall craft shows & bazaars was in the paper this past weekend. Need to make notes. SUPER excited!!!

Work...school...pool...repeat as necessary. Oh yeah...and throw some walking in as well!

MONIQUE - my mother does sewn items (pillows, scarves, cozies, coasters, purses, etc.). I make kid's jewelry, jean pocket purses, embellished picture frames, and other odds and ends.

Went on a new hiking trail. We had fun. Got lost trying to find the place, but a guy walking his dog helped us find it. Then hubby got us lost on the way back to the car. He didn't hear me properly (again, as usual), but we did find our way back. We'll definitely do it again. Don't know if I'll have time for hiking when I'm in training, so made sure to fit in in today.

I don't know if you will be back to see this Walking_Wonder...but what kind of crafts do you & your Mom do? I'm a craft LOVER so I'm very curious. My best friend went to a fiber arts festival this weekend. I'm jealous & hope she has MUCH better weather up there!!!

Did my Deep Water class tonight. Saw "A Walk in the Woods" today which was CUTE. LOVE me some Nick Nolte...so I can't complain. So glad I have 2 more days of "weekend".

Give yourself some rest Trev!!! You deserve it!!!

Going to Mom's soon to load up the van for tomorrow's craft show. We have a show just about every weekend. We don't have one for Columbus Day weekend, but that's fine with me. I'll use that time to study. I also have a la-di-da birthday party for my other-in-law that weekend. Getting closer to starting my training program. Still excited and nervous.

Have a great weekend everyone!

PFOLEY - sorry you are under the weather! I hope you feel better soon!

Busy day today. Some yoga (very short because I couldn't concentrate). Re-read all four chapters in my textbook. Did some marching in place. Went to the pharmacy where everything I bought ended up on sale - don't know how that happened, but I'll take it. Met my friend for lunch. Crafted with Mom. Came home and got on here after I got dinner in the oven. Busy tomorrow too.

I'm in VA Walking_Wonder...just down the road. :) I would be happy to send you some rain! You will do great in your class. You can use all the cool technology to help you like apps on your phone. You can also go old school & use flashcards & notes & friends & family for reviews & drills. emoticon

Feel better PFOLEY. I'll be getting my flu shot soon...I hate to hear about anyone who has an adverse reaction.

Regular Doc appt this morning went well. Still working on the A1C level...but I will get this figured out!

I made a blog post but the last time I did no one could read it. I got my flu shot and pneumonia shot Monday and have been very sick since then. I am having a bad reaction to one of them. I am in a lot of pain and I could use some prayers.

Thanks

MONIQUE - I don't know where on the East Coast you live, but I haven't seem rain in ages! I live in MA and we haven't seen rain in ages! We desperately need it though!

I'm excited and nervous about starting my training program next week. I'm excited because I know it will be interesting. I'm nervous because there is so much to know and remember and I'm having trouble with my memory. I don't know how I'm going to get through this - UGH!

Rainy blah grey week here on the east coast of the US too Trev. And woke up to a dead car battery yesterday morning. Got a new battery. Thank Goodness the BFF works at the auto parts store. Those things aren't cheap! Now I'm hearing every noise & whine the car makes. Hyper alert I think they call it.

WalkingWonder a lot of people graze all day. I'm sure there must be some of them on this board so I'm sure you will get a LOT of tips. You could also look on Pinterest for ideas. I love Pinterest but tend to get sucked in! LOL!

Deep Water class tonight so long as there is no thunder or lightening. My body would LOVE to get in the pool so cross your fingers for me please.

Ready for the weekend!

Just found out that the city next to where I live is going to be making a big trail that combines all of their smaller trails so it should end up being 26.2 miles around the city. They listed trails that already exist that I hadn't heard of, so I'm going to look them up and print them out. Always looking for more hiking trails!

Is time the problem? If it is then it may be that you will have to use snacks.

Now a snack can be a salad but the biggest problem will be protein with them.

Most snack bars are unhealthy but most are filling. Dived your calories by 5 to see what you can have then when at home make your normal meals and bigger snacks in between.

It is going to be hard until you can sort it out

Gastroenterologist wants me to eat 5 small meals a day instead of 3 big meals. I don't see how I'm going to be able to do that. I'll have a protein bar between breakfast and lunch, which I should be able to do during my training program, but not sure if I'll be able to do when I start working again. As far as another meal, I don't see when or how. Any ideas?

I have so much to say that I don't know where to begin. Yesterday Mom and I did our first craft show of the season, and it was our best show ever! Unfortunately I ate 6 munchkins. Today was my uncle's mass and Celebration of Life. I didn't cry much, just ate bad. Had two slices of plain pizza, a brownie and a few bites of this yummy and delicious dessert that was just too good. Although, I didn't take too much of it and I didn't go back for seconds. I soooooo could have though!

Had a friend come over who is OCD. she threw out stuff in freezer and fridge and then made up some meals for a few days. If i watch portion sizes they will last longer....Hmmm a body could get used to this...

I got round to getting a Fitbit Zip yesterday, so this is my first day with it.

I would not buy one as they were over price last year and have now dropped by half. It goes to show what waiting will do.

It was rainy and cool this morning, but now the sun is shining and it's warmer. Today I finally did my entire yoga routine! This is the first time I've been able to complete it since the car accident. I was so happy. I also finished a book that I've been reading forever. It feels like it's been forever because I used to finish them in a few days to a week. Now it takes longer. (long story).

Happy Friday All! It's rainy & a bit cooler here. Oddly, it still feels humid. Like sticky. I think we're getting rain most of the weekend. My lawn got mowed yesterday but my Gram's really needs it & I just don't think the boys will be able to get to it this week. My oldest will have to do it next week once it dries up to earn his keep! HA!

I am ferrying children for most of the weekend & trying to remember what's on my TO DO list. Work today. Went to the college this morning to try to get my Financial Aid stuff resolved. The girl was decidedly VAGUE. Cross your fingers for me. Oh yes...at the top of my TO DO list...homework! EEK!!!

Have a great weekend & get your steps in!!!

Trev - glad to hear you got good news from the MD. I also got news from the MD today. I've barely been home today. Had an appointment in the AM and then ate lunch there and went straight to work. Got home for about 20 minutes and left for another appointment. I've been so busy lately trying to get stuff done before the NAT program starts.

Picked up 2 hours a day for 2 days a week at work. It's not much, but it's something. This is only until I start my training program at the end of the month. Having homework already is weird. I have to read for chapters and fill out the terms in the workbook. The first two chapters were easy. This third chapter has a lot more terms and they're more difficult. This is going to be a tough training program!

Didn't eat very well yesterday while at a birthday party. I did eat veggies this time, so I did do something better. Didn't stick to portion control. Then had to have cake (with fruit on it so I got in some fruit too) and icecream. Let's just say that I ate so much there that I didn't eat any dinner and I felt fine. I wasn't starving like I thought I might be. I just figured that with all that I ate at lunch, it was enough for two meals, so I skipped the next meal.

I picked her and her friend up and my brother and his family we all went to eat. It was later than I am used to eating so I was restless all night. Feel sleepy and draggy today.

Well done Diedre

Taking a few days off to let my body catch up

I have noticed that if I do too much or a lot of exercise I don't sleep. I keep waking for an hour or so at a time.

Hubby and I finally did it. We did this section of the rail trail that we've been wanting to do and actually did it. I figured that with all of the walking we did while we were on vacation, we could handle this without a problem. I took 2 hours and 25 minutes to do it. My feet are killing me now. Now I know that I could do the whole rail trail, one way. I'd have to work up to doing it round trip.

Thanks PFOLEY7! Today I went to the chiropractor - which I desperately needed. I also picked up a couple of hours of work 2 day a week. Started today and will do it 'til my training starts. It felt nice to get back out there.

Thanks guys! I passed the TABE! Things went well at the training program. Picked u p my uniform and new sneakers that are specific to the program. Also picked up my textbook and workbook and got my first assignment. I'll look at it tomorrow, as I have too much to do right now.

Getting stuff done so I can start the Nurse Assistant Training Program at the end of the month. So much is going into this to try to get the Career Center (related to unemployment) to pay for it. For instance tomorrow I have to take the TABE test in the morning. Then in the afternoon I have to go to the training facility for them to fill out paperwork for me to send into the main office of unemployment so I can take the training and not look for work at the same time and keep getting paid through unemployment. I can't wait 'til all this running around is done and I'm in the program!

I am up most days around 6 or 6:30. So I then walk to get my Newspaper which is 15 minutes or so.

The 15 mile bike ride was very early in the morning as I could not sleep. I was up at 5:30 and out about 5:50 and it took me 90 minutes. By that time it was daylight and home for breakfast.

Most days I don't get the time to cycle for 90 minutes but I can do 3 or 4 miles.

The walking I enjoy but do get bored with the same route so I change it around.

As I always say: Make it fun so you will stick with it. and that is what I have done.

MONIQUEDVA - I walk because I enjoy it. I don't think about it as a means to an end. I walk my butt off, and still gain weight sometimes. Then sometimes I lose weight. I have really figured out how to get it all to work out. Right now I'm trying to focus on portion control, because I think that's where my problems lie.

Hope this helps you!

Quick question for a Monday morning...for the walkers walking the BIG numbers...do you worry about your weight at all or does the walking basically keep your weight in check?

And Trev...I'm just so impressed...how do you cycle 15 miles AND walk 20 miles in one day? Like 24 hours? I really am floored. Please share.

Thanks!

I am glad I managed to get 20 miles in yesterday as it is raining again today.
Yesterdays 15 mile cycle was good as it was first thing in the morning, no traffic to hinder me.

The 5k virtual race didn't go as well as I had hoped as I had a slower time than last Monday's. I put that down to the monsoon I had that fell most of the walk last week.

With luck next weeks 5k will be better

Went for a hike this AM. After lunch we went out to pick up a toaster oven for $10 we read about in the paper. It's brand new and better than the one we have, same brand. What a deal! Hopefully it works better than what we have. We've been having back luck with toaster ovens. Hopefully since this was such a great deal, we'll have better luck. After dinner we will be going for a shorter walk, since we hiked this AM.

Good Morning gang! Happy Sunday! I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Trev - Sorry to hear that your day yesterday didn't go quite as planned. Hopefully the engine work will go much faster the next time.

Dierdre - Sorry that your sister-in-law turned on you at the meeting. Good thing you don't see her often!

PFOLEY - You'd better listen to your doctor! Take it easy so you'll get better!

I spent the entire day cleaning yesterday and I've still got a long way to go. I cannot believe that I let my apartment get so bad. No wonder I'm always so stressed! Hopefully I can work on it a bit more this afternoon and then each night this week. My nieces are coming over to stay the night on Friday, so I need everything but my bedroom to be clean!

Tomorrow we (the boyfriend and I) are heading back to the gym. We haven't been very active since getting back from our vacation, but it's high time to get back to it!

A good and bad day

Yesterday I invigilated (lead) on three of my club members taking their amateur radio foundation license. I am glad to say that all three passed with flying colours.

I then help my friend with the 1962 Morris Minor putting in an engine . I think that the engine had something against us as it did not want to go in. Up to that point we had only found that the odd things did not match but did only cause a time problem.

As we put the engine in it started rain (we were outside). It took an hour to get the engine in but by the time it was in things got worse as it rained harder.

A good thing was it started first time but had minor problems like water leaks. It did not take long to fix these.

At the end of the day it was not a good engine and we need to do the job again.

Went to that meeting at the town hall yesterday. What a bunch of bull! It was such a waste of time. My sister-in-law showed up stating that she was here FOR my agenda item. Then as things went on, she spoke up AGAINST it. I couldn't believe it. To make it worse, they took her side. I'm not very happy with her. Luckily I don't see her often!

I am feed up seeing my friends die that I have stopped going to funeral. not that I can do anything about it. I know how you must feel but as we get older more and more are going. One day it will be ours.

It does prove life it so short for us all.

I must admit to a felling of relief when my mother died as the person who died was not the person who brought me up.

Sad but true, I do feel for you but please do as I do and remember the good times

Just donated money to the GoFundMe account to raise money for my uncle's funeral. It made me cry all over again. I will surely miss him. I didn't see him often, but knowing that he's gone and I'll never see him again is sad. Last time I saw him was on Christmas Eve. He didn't look good. The weird thing is that when I was on vacation, and hubby and I were sitting around the campfire, we were talking about how bad he looked that night. I told hubby that I thought that he'd be the next to go (die) - and he was. We had this conversation the night before I found out he was dead. Talk about ironic!
