A relaxing Saturday
Saturday, September 17, 2011
Today is going to be a relaxing day. Usually Saturday is busy going here and there or doing things I didn't get done during the week. I do have 2 errands to run...but that is it. No driving anyone anywhere. I slept 8 hours and after being up an hour went back to bed for 3 more hours. It felt good!! I definitely am feeling a little better, but I still have this cold. I am just not able to kick it very fast. Guess I will continue to get lots of rest and hope that it gets over soon.
It was good to see Paula yesterday. I took her to Sam's Club. Ended up that her husband got a ride up, so he could drive her home. They only dilated one eye, so it was really difficult for her to drive. Even with the sun glasses they gave her, as it was a little cloudy out. Anyway, Terrel likes to come to Billings and he wanted to go to Sam's Club. He really likes to shop!!! What a funny guy! Paula liked Sam's Club and thought it was really similar to Costco. I told her I thought so, too. The part I like is that traffic isn't as bad!! The street is not as busy as King Ave West and it is easier to get out of Sam's Club.
I am holding my weight even though I haven't exercised all week. When I feel better I will start exercising again. Some people might think I should exercise anyway, but my body tells me it just can't handle it right now!! So I am listening to my body.
I am tracking my food intake and doing pretty well with that. I go over sometimes and under others, but I stay pretty close. My sodium is usually over the top. Not sure that is something I can control too much better, unless I stop eating canned/processed foods. I am not able to eat the fruits and veggies like I want to right now. My IBS is acting up...I am not even able to eat any milk or cottage cheese right now. Ever since I took the mylanta the other day...those things really bother me! Hopefully that won't last too long. I like my fruits and veggies and really like milk. I have switched to Silk Light Chocolate for right now and also bought some almond milk.
It is not the same, but will get me by for now.
Well, I am going to get off of here and run those 2 errands. Then I will be back to do some church stuff on the computer and maybe watch a movie.
Have a great day!! Remember, it is what you make it!!
