Monday morning already! It was a busy weekend here! I did take advantage of the nice weather and get a nice long walk in with the dog. We have both had cabin fever from being stuck inside so much this winter. It was nice to get out!

I got my mom home from the hospital yesterday, and she's pretty happy to be home. Fingers crossed that she stays well and gets to stay home for awhile!

I better get busy - hope you all have a great day!

Hi everyone yesterday I went to the doctor just for my usual 3 month check in and found out that since the beginning of the year I have gained 13lbs back. I told him that I have cut down on what I been eating and said what is next on losing this weight. All he said to me is get up and move around a lot more but be careful.

I thought man that is so helpful so been looking up more chair exercises and found out there is a lot more out there then I thought there was.

Thinking I need to figure out how to get the umph up to get moving knowing that once I get started with a task I stay on it until it is done for that section at least. Then I need the umph to get up the next day to do the same thing.

I told dh that maybe I should just walk around the house a lot to get in 2 or 3 miles a day going in a circle until this rain stops. But that is boring to do that every day several times (I know excuses, excuses). When the weather is good enough to go outside I can take one dog to the corner and back, (since we have three dogs) that would be three trips to the corner and back. the round trip is about 1/2 mile so that would get me 1 1/2 miles a day as long as I keep it up.

Weather here in California is raining, in the summer time it can get up over 100 at times. So need some suggestions on how to make the exercise fun so it would be more like play time so to speak.

Thanks in advance for all the help.

Heather: HUGS, it's understandable that you're feeling low. Restructuring is a scary thing when you're an employee and not the company doing the cuts.

Linda: Boy I hear you about Floridians just not understanding what cold weather really is! It's what we get used to wherever we live, I guess. I hope the weather has improved for you. Not so for us, rain and wind yesterday, rain and snow today!

We had a great visit with our DD and DGD's, just never long enough. It was a long day for us though and we're taking it easy today. I exercised on the bike this morning and got some laundry taken care of. We caught up with our recorded basketball games from yesterday. I didn't eat healthy at all yesterday, so hard when the household has a chaotic schedule, but I'm back on program today.

Have a great afternoon and evening!

Wow, I'm glad it's Friday. Yesterday was rough. My company is "restructuring" and about 40 co-workers lost their jobs. This is the 4th round of lay-offs since before Christmas, and moral is SO low.

I'm having a hard time being positive this week. Sorry guys!

Vikki - yes, it was a bit cooler today. In our area it was 65. Because I am originally from the north, Ohio, I have to crack up at many in Florida. What I consider warm in the winter (50s and 60s) is very cold for them. Oh, I certainly remember what COLD is in the north in winter. So a 60 degree day in winter or early Spring is no problem for me. Having said that, our temps have been 70s and an occasional 80 here. So rain has just cooled things off for a few days. emoticon

Hi everyone! It's beautiful today, sunny, and bitter cold..still. (roll eyes here) We continue to get stronger and not have any relapses so that's very encouraging. My sweetie has a physical today, so that should confirm he's doing well. I did my cardio exercise this morning, I've gotten a load of laundry finished, I made chicken stock and shredded the chicken to make chicken salad for tomorrow. We're spending the day with our DD who lives outside of Chicago and we're bringing "picnic" makings for dinner with our DGD's. It's been a couple of months since we've seen them, so I'm excited about seeing how they've changed. They're 7 and 4, so cute. Tonight we have choir rehearsal. It feels pretty good to feel "normal" again!

Heather: emoticon I hope you're feeling better and I hope your mom improves. It's so hard being the caregiver, especially when the parent just wants to be home in spite of their health. Be gentle with yourself.

Linda: I hope your hubby is truly better, and I'm glad your taxes are finished. Is it still warm down there? Someone who's vacationing around Orlando actually had the nerve to complain it was cold down there when he talked to my sweetie this morning on the phone. Imagine! emoticon

Have a great day and evening!

Today was tax day...we finished our taxes. Yay! Glad to have that done. I worked on vacuuming yesterday. Today is laundry day. I need to get in my exercise and also catch up on some emails. Hubby fell last night in our driveway taking out the garbage to the curb. He seems okay just a little sore today.

Heather - hope your mother is feeling better. Also hope you are feeling better after the sinus meds.

Vikki - happy to hear that hubby is feeling better.

Lindy - hope that you were able to accomplish what you wanted to do. But as you said, with most of us it is a neverending battle.

Good morning! It's Wednesday already.

I woke up with a sinus headache this morning, so I skipped working out and took some sinus medicine and went back to bed for an hour. My head is better, but now my stomach is upset from the sinus medicine! Ugh!

When my mom came home Monday, she was feeling slightly nauseated. I figured she needed to move her bowels (sorry!) because that is usually the source of her nausea. She had a colon resection a couple of years ago, and has been fighting this issue since then. Anyway, I tried to talk her into staying a couple more days, but she wanted to go home. When I got to her house yesterday to check on her, she was laying in bed moaning and holding her belly. She was having abdominal pain, not just nausea, other symptoms which leads me to believe she's got another round of colitis coming on. Now if she had stayed in the nursing home like I wanted her to, they could have dealt with this. Since she didn't, I'm stuck with it. Sigh. I'm hoping she doesn't end up in the hospital this time. Maybe if we get meds started quickly enough, she can avoid it.

So, I'm feeling kind of grouchy and out of sorts today. I need to get with the program!

Hi everyone! We're finally healthy, my sweetie's leg is much better so we're hopeful that it will recover from swelling. So, now we're busy catching up with life. I cleaned the house for my exercise this morning, then we headed out to look at new doors for our bedroom closet, stuff to paint and seal our deck, and container gardening stuff. Tuna noodle casserole for dinner, then we have a discussion group meeting at church.

Have any of you used cold frames for gardening? My sweetie suggested trying it, but from what I've read on-line, it's mostly for winter gardening.

KMICHA: WOOHOO! How awesome for your DS#2 and your family!

Heather: It was very thoughtful of you to beautify your mom's front door before she comes home today. I'll bet today was tiring for both of you.

Linda: I hope your DDs are feeling better today.

Lindy: Baby steps. It never goes away, we just take baby steps and manage it.

Have a great evening!

Woke up on the sofa, again. I've got to break this habit. I slept in the bed Saturday night and I never budged under the warm blankets. When I wake up on the sofa the TV is on. I do like the fact that I can watch human beings and hear their voices - makes this 15 years of living alone more bearable. But it wastes time. I find myself being attracted to the news and not focusing on all the chores that are surrounding me every day. I can't seem to get ahead to having the living spaces completely free of projects to do. I multitask and work non stop all day and evening and there's always stuff "out" when I wake up.

Today I'm going to clean up all these things sitting in the dining and living room. I did steam clean the carpet yesterday, and I can't put the cleaning machine away until I finish tiling the pantry floor space where I store the cleaner underneath the shelving. And i need to find the studs in the pantry wall to hang hooks to hang the attachments to the cleaning machines.

It's the never ending story of work. emoticon

Good morning! I've got a busy day ahead! I'm only working a half day today, then I'm taking off to get mom home from rehab. She's really excited to be going home. Of course, there will be shopping and prescriptions to pick up. Then, this afternoon is my DS's first track meet - luckily it's not too far away, so I'll be able to see him.

We're supposed to get rain and snow tonight, but then it's supposed to start warming up later in the week. Hopefully this is the last of it!

This morning I woke up and received two phone calls before church from DDs - they are not feeling well. It put me a bit behind but I did make it to church on time. Just didn't get as dressed up as I wanted. Afterwards, stopped at the grocery to pick up a few items for dinner. We took a walk and had dinner. Now onto a load of laundry.

Kmicha - happy to hear about your son.

Heather - that will be nice to get some flowers for your mother's homecoming.

Good Sunday morning!

Slept in a little, and got some time in on the elliptical and bike. In a bit, the hubby and I are going to head to Lowes. I thought I'd plant some flowers in my mom's pot by her door as kind of a "welcome home" tomorrow.

Hope you all have a great day!

The day started off pretty lazy. I really did enjoy just chilling out. Playing on the computer, chatting with hubby....but I decided I needed to get up and take a walk. I also did a short strength exercise workout. Some of the exercise was with weights. Hubby and I ended up going out for a late lunch. I realized that I was full halfway through my meal. I am happy that I started listening to my body. Normally, I would continue eating even though I was feeling full. I brought the other half of my meal home. I can eat it for lunch tomorrow. I ended up doing some laundry this evening. We also watched Gravity. We had seen it at the theatre but decided to watch it again at home.

Bonnie - it sounds like you are busy with cleaning. That will add up a lot of burned calories.

Heather - I always enjoyed it when my DD's had friends over too. That was one of the best parts of seeing them grow up. I sometimes felt like a kid too.

Vikki - so sorry to hear about hubby. He has certainly had a rough month. I do hope he is feeling much better.

Janeez4 - yes, those hot spots are always ready to be put out. I have a couple right now.

Hi everyone! It's sunny and mild today, we can see more of our yard now. My sweetie is still improving, except he pulled a muscle in his back yesterday. Poor man is not having a good health month. I'm getting stronger, able to do more exercise again, but still not back up to 60 minutes per day. I baked sour dough bread today, and I'm making tuna noodle casserole from scratch for tonight's dinner. Not much else going on except watching March Madness.

Linda: YAY for your weight loss and exercise!

Janeez: I understand company cleaning, I hate it, but I always feel like the Inspector General is coming to visit. I hope you didn't wear yourself out so you can enjoy your company tonight.

Have a good afternoon and evening!

Today is expected to be really warm. I have let the house go, lots of hot spots that'll take more than 2 minutes. It's a constant struggle for me.Walking for exercise or house maintenance. I am expecting company tonight, so guess which takes precedence. Have a great day everyone.

I started the day at the gym. All in all this morning, I got in 60 minutes of cardio. In the evening a video gave me some strength exercises. Hubby and I walked around a store looking for more outdoor furniture. Still looking and didn't find exactly what we wanted.

Have a happy Friday!

I lost one pound this week. I was surprised I lost any because I was a bit lax last week with my food. However, I did turn it around a couple of days ago.

I did get in a 80 minute walk today. I also went to get a mammogram. All turned out well with that. So happy that I am done with that until next year. I also did some grocery shopping.

Vikki - I am happy for you and hubby that you were able to go back to choir practice this evening. Your homemade macaroni & cheese sounds wonderful.

Sue - you stayed busy with laundry today. It is great hubby helped you.

Slenderella - you are getting in some great exercise. I have a treadmill at home also. I use the elliptical at the gym. I love using the elliptical for the arm movement. Glad that you are enjoying your new furniture.

Jan - hope you are able to walk the perimeter of the store. Indoor exercise can be awesome.

Bonnie - hope that you were able to talk your walk.

Heather - glad to hear that you lost 2 pounds. Yes, you will like your new elliptical. It is such a good workout.

Kmicha - sounded like fun taking out one of the Harley's. The pizza sounds great too. I always like pizza.

I folded three baskets of laundry, and had hubby put one in the washer for me.

Hi everyone! My energy is still low from whatever virus I have, but I got 40 minutes of exercise in this morning. I also baked our homemade macaroni and cheese ahead of time for our dinner tonight. We're going to choir this evening, it will be the first time this month both of us will be there...choir director may pass out from shock! emoticon

Linda: YAY for laundry, etc. done yesterday! I hope you're over your tummy ache and that the x-ray technician was gentle today.

KMICHA: WOOHOO, it's Spring, the Harley has been riden! What fun to have your little DGD help make dinner!

Heather: Way to go on your weight loss! Yup, the elliptical will work your muscles.

Bonnie: Were you able to get your walk in?

Slenderella: YAY for FLYing! YAY for good weight and regular exercising!

Have a great evening!

I'm Vikki

BonBon, hope you get your walk. That's part of why I got a treadmill 15 years ago. Even if it rains, I can get my exercise in. I don't have a Flylady CD. Sounds like something good. I'll look for it.

Scarlett, I love the elliptical. I use the one at the Y. If I was going to buy a piece of exercise equipment today it would be an elliptical!

Eve and morning routines done. Mount Washmore is tiny. While this weather is great, I need to try to do something about my back screened porch. Wish we could demolish it, but hubby would never go for that. I'm afraid it is too fragile for a pressure washer, but previous attempts to get the green and black stuff off of it have not been successful. What a mess! At least I'm loving my new living room furniture and new carpet is coming soon!! Will try to keep focused on the positive. My weight is pretty good and I've been exercising and running regularly!!

Looks like a rainy day here. I'm going to the grocery store that has been in a huge remodeling process for months and it's now done. It used to be walking the perimeter of the inside of the store was 1 mile. Wonder what it is now. emoticon

Good morning! Today was weigh in day, and I'm down 2 pounds. I'm pretty happy about that!

My hubby put together my elliptical last night, so I jumped on this morning. I have to say, WOW! That works some muscles I don't normally work!

It was sunny and a bit warmer yesterday, we got one of the Harleys out and took it for a spin. DGD (19 months) was here last evening and she helped me make pizza for dinner. Rainy today, good day to do some flying around the house!

The day started out pretty well. I did two loads of laundry and a few other things around the house. I took a walk. I ended up with a stomachache though.

Tomorrow I have a mammogram scheduled. Not looking to that, but....

Hi everyone! Sunny day here. We're still recovering from colds, not much energy on my part, but I blessed the house yesterday to get my exercise in. I picked up groceries today and made cookies to send to our college GS. Catch up with you later!

Good morning!

What happens when we're on overtime? The systems go down, of course! ARGH!

My mom's doppler went fine, they didn't see any problems (which I predicted!). So we are just taking "wait and see" approach. In the meantime, she's planning on going home next Monday. It's been a nice break, but I guess it couldn't last forever. She told me last night that she wanted me to still give her showers when she gets home so she doesn't have to get undressed in front of a stranger. Which I get, but still.... ugh.

Hope you all have a great day!
