Memorial Day Weekend

Saturday, May 26, 2012

Hi Spark People friends. It has been months since I have written a blog. Not really doing so well. Struggling with diet and exercise.

I haven't been getting to the pool and I can tell! My joints hurt more than they were when I was going regularly.

And food...I want more of it!! My IBS has been giving me problems, so food is a struggle. I did join the IBS team and hope to explore there more. Maybe the support of others with the same problem will help.

Volunteering is going well. I don't volunteer at PLUK as much as I was in Feb., March and April. My work study student is done for the semester and I am not going to supervise another student. 4 days a week at PLUK is too much for me...it is stressful and that is when I quit doing water aerobics regularly.

My sleep goes up and down. Some nights I get 8 hours or more others, like tonight I am awake in the middle of the night.

I am just a mess right now!! I have a positive attitude most days which is good.
I hope everyone has a good weekend. Thanks to all the veterans that have served and those actively serving our country!! We have lost too many soldiers and they should be remembered this weekend. Thank a veteran for serving. It is the least we can do!!

    Angie -- I hope that as your duties at PLUK lessen for the summer, you will start with the water aerobics again. You know how much better you feel when you do them.

    I've been somewhat off-track the past couple of months, too. I'm slowly getting back into the program and some core work. Not much cardio, although I have been trying to do some walking breaks at work. And marathon lawn mowing sessions, a couple so far, and more to come as soon as it dries up enough to get out there.

    I hope you are having a good Memorial Day weekend, despite the weather.

    Oh Angie, I agree with True-ness, you seem to know what makes you feel better. (I'm sure this snow doesn't help). But hopefully we will really have spring soon and you can get out! Hope you get back to feeling more yourself soon!

    It sounds like you know exactly what to do to get back to feeling better... Taking a break doesn't really feel like a break, huh? It's more damaging than relaxing. So, get back to doing the things that you know will bring you joy and make your body feel healthy and happy. I'm wishing that for you today. God bless!
