I woke up to a beautiful day!! It was a little windy...but very nice with lots of sunshine! I ate a good breakfast and went to church. We had a great sacrament meeting and a great family history class. We learned all about indexing census records. If my computer wasn't so slow...I might do some. Oh well, will have to wait until I upgrade my computer.
I felt good after church except for this neck ache I keep having. I guess I need to make an appt. to see the doctor. She thought it was soft muscle tissue...and has me on some muscle relaxers, ice and heat...but it is not helping. I might have arthritis in my neck...and that might be the cause of my aches and pains. The next thing she is going to do is take an x-ray. I was in a car accident years ago and had a whip lash, so I imagine I have arthritis in my neck...like other parts of my body!! Oh, the joys of getting to the age where you feel all the things that you did when you were young. Now, I know the alternate is worse...just needed to complain a minute. Okay! I am done...on to other topics!!
It is 60 degrees here with a slight wind. But the sun is up and is so nice!! I love the spring!! My apt. is a good temperature today, because I have been opening the windows at night to get a cross breeze. Otherwise, it gets really hot!! I have a screen door and will often lock the screen and leave the door open. The sights out my window and the sounds from my door always intrigue my cat!! He was watching and listening to birds fly by last night! His eyes get really big and he looks like he just wants to jump out the window!!
He is so lovable!! I sure do enjoy his companionship. It is nice when you live alone to have a pet...and he isn't standoffish...but I can still leave him alone for awhile.
Well, I weighed under 230 this morning!! That is the first time my scale has gone that low!! I hope I can maintain until Tuesday's weigh-in at DPP at the Y.
I am eating at my friend's tonight, but she is getting really good about not using butter or regular margarine...we now make extended butter...that has no chemicals or preservatives. It tastes really good. I did mine with 1/2 olive oil and 1/2 canola oil. I think she did hers with corn oil. I added it to the recipe database, if anyone wants to see the recipe. I like the fact that it hasn't got the chemicals in it.
I just listed it under extended butter.
Well, my day is going really well. I feel good today and other than my neck...I am not having any problems. My joints feel pretty good and it felt really good to workout yesterday at the Y's make up class. Thursday was so hectic I didn't go to the Y to workout with the class. Soon class will be other...so I am trying to transition before it is over. And soon I will be able to swim again 3 times a week. Summer is always even more laided back for me. I only volunteer twice a week...once at PLUK and once at NAMI of Billings. And I enjoy my summer. This year will include more exercise than last summer.
even if it is the recumbent bike..I don't do well on a bike that I have to lean over the handle bars!!
Anyway, I am looking forward to a relaxed but busy summer. I am doing a little house sitting, pet watching, and just enjoying the weather!!
Because I will have air conditioning this year...I won't bake when it gets really hot. That will be excellent!! I think Snickers will enjoy it being cool in here, too. He wasn't with me the past 2 summers...but he would have been hot!
So...the plan for the day is to enjoy it!! I might exercise today...even if it is just for 10 minutes. It helps me sleep at night and Sunday night it is always harder for me to get to sleep than other nights.
Have a great day...and remember...it is what you make it!!
