Low key Saturday

Saturday, July 26, 2014

After having a really rough night at work last night, including crazy patients, being understaffed and too much other crazy stuff happen that I can't even mention, I'm happy to be able to relax today. I don't have to go back to work until next Sunday. I really like making my own schedule!!

My hubby had to work at 3 am today. I felt bad for him so I thought I would help him out by cutting the grass. He was gonna do it last night, but I didn't want him to be too tired to get up for work. Usually this is his domain and he really doesn't like when I do it. We live on a corner on an extra large lot and I forgot just how much I really don't like to cut the grass!! I don't mind doing the front but in the back I have to go around the pool and move the trampoline, it's just a pain. I think next time I'll leave it to him, but at least I got some exercise out of it!!

My mom took my daughter shopping for her new backpack and to lunch. She does that every year with all the grandchildren. It's nice that she takes the time to do that as well as that gives me one less thing to have to buy for the kids.

I don't think we will have a lot going on the rest of the day. My hubby will be tired when he gets home so I don't think we will be going out. I don't mind, I'm sure we can find plenty to do here. My son still has his cast on, so I won't be swimming. I feel bad going in the pool when he can't.

I hope you all are enjoying your Saturday. Thanks for reading :)

    Understaffed work shifts are stressful, and for me they're also invigorating. They certainly fly by!
My MIL always took her grandchildren out individually for a new-school-item and lunch every year. It's a fabulous help and the kids enjoy it and look forward to it. I can hardly wait to do the same thing with my GD. I'm so glad that you all have this tradition, too. emoticon

    That's really nice of your mom to keep that kind of tradition. I'm sure her grandkids love it because it's always nice to do something special with your grandparent and be able to rely on it every year :)

Good news!!

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

I took my son to the doctor yesterday for his follow up visit after his surgery. The doctor took the cast off of his right foot!! He didn't have as extensive work done on the right one, so that's why he was able to take it off. He is now a little more mobile. He will get crutches to get around too once he starts physical therapy. He's so excited that he is able to move around a little better. The other cast comes off in a few more weeks. We cannot wait for that.

Today has been a very productive cleaning day. It's quite hot and humid here and we have an air quality alert. What a great day to get the stuff done on the inside. I've cleaned the bathrooms, vacuumed, dusted, changed sheets and did a few loads of laundry, I swear that's a never ending chore, and dinner is in the crock pot. I even ordered one of my school books since I go back to school in a little more than a month. Time to start getting back into that frame of mind too.

I will get my work out in later tonight. I haven't worked out in a few days so I'm ready to get back to it. No worries though, I've been pretty good about my nutrition.

I hope you are having a great day. Thanks for reading :)

    What great news about your son! I'll bet you are all anxious for the crutches to come in to play. No more stuck inside! Now we just need the heat and humidity to let up a bit...
Sounds like you have a relaxed and healthy attitude about the workouts and nutrition, way to go! Things all work out, eventually I guess emoticon

What a difference a good workout makes!

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

I was woken up at 4:45 am today by the sound of my husbands alarm blaring. It was so loud that it scared me awake! Needless to say I didn't fall back asleep. When I don't sleep I tend to get headaches. I had one most of the day. I took some Motrin then later I took some Excederin migraine. Neither seemed to work, I was able to fall asleep on the couch for about 20 min until the phone rang, nobody important of course, so I wasn't able to fall back asleep after that. At this point it's time to make dinner so no time to work out til after dinner.

I gave it everything I had today. I was even able to run for 15 min straight, something I don't know if I've ever been able to do. I did some strength training too. After my workout my headache was gone, finally.

I'm glad I worked out. I feel better especially since I don't have a headache. Also, if I work out my husband feels he has to work out too. So he goes and does it too. He needs to lose weight, but he won't admit it. So every little bit helps with him too.

Thanks for reading. I hope you are having a great day!

    emoticon emoticon I have to fight not wanting to work out (other than swimming) right now. Even on these cooler days it hasn't been cool enough for me not to overheat when I'm working out. I did do mine this morning though :D Knowing others do it despite their own odds helps too. emoticon

    Good for you, working out when you're feeling like that. It's great to see that you can motivate two people to exercise at one time emoticon

Little by little

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

I'm really excited that the scale has finally started to move the right way!! That totally made my day. It might not have been as much as I would've liked, but losing is losing, so I'll take it any way I can get it! It might have been a little more but it probably didn't help that my son wanted DQ last night, I'm so weak for ice cream!!

I've been doing run/walk intervals for my cardio hoping to do more running than walking. I have never been a runner, but I would eventually like to do a 5k.

My son is getting better each day. We go back to the doctor on Monday for a follow up. I'm hoping that he will get his right cast off. At least then he can be more mobile.

Today it is kind of cool here. The windows are open and we have fresh air!! I'm happy to be able to enjoy the beautiful weather.

I hope you are all having a great day. Thanks for reading :)

    emoticon emoticon I am happy for you. I do get so excited with any little downward movement of the scale. Try to think of I can have a bite of ice cream so you don't feel deprived. You control how much. It is not a no food but a only this much food. You have the freedom to choose. This is a lifestyle change we are making and not a deprivation diet. Otherwise when you lose what you want then you may overindulge and gain it back. You are in control to set your own limits. emoticon
