I think I will start working on something else for October. I will still be exercising of course but I need something to keep myself motivated. I will be glad when my new Fitbit comes. I sure miss having a daily record of my steps.

We went out for supper tonight with other members of the motorcycle club. It was an enjoyable evening. There was a bit of a chill in the air on the ride home but it was not uncomfortable.

It is shocking to me to see how many leaves are already on the ground. It seems like they just started to fall and already they are accumulating. emoticon There are not many green tomatoes that need to be picked before frost. There are some green peppers that will have to come in. There are still many blossoms on the pepper plants. I think the kale can handle cold temperatures. We'll see.

    The new Fitbit Zip is a replacement for my older model that was using batteries too quickly. The Zip does not track sleep or blood pressure but I think Fitbit has other products that do.

    Have you had a fit bit before. Does it record steps miles Calories , sleep and Blood pressure. That is the one I should get.

I bought Spark tracker but Microsoft would not allow me to put it on to my Surface 2 so I had to send it back.

Great you are still doing the biking. I hope winter comes late but I hope for that most years since I had no kids to play outside with.
Fred has his cataract remove from his good eye. We are hoping it works well but even the good eye is affected .
By the weekend we should know. Pat in Maine.

Day 67

Saturday, September 27, 2014

Exercise emoticon

What a beautiful day we enjoyed! It was hard to remember it is almost the end of September.

I went through some of the boxes we brought home from SIL's apartment and took some things to the thrift store. I also took an old printer and monitor to the e-waste site. It felt good to clear space in the basement even though I know Hubby wishes I would get rid of more. I am going through my books to see which ones I am willing to release to the used book store.

Hubby actually shopped and cooked supper tonight. We had chicken wings and French fries. He did a good job.

    Well done. I too want to de clutter and it drives me crazy. We have the yard looking nice. The bedroom also. We can keep the living space looking good enough. Downstairs is still a mess. I talked to our son and he knows what t takes. COMMUNICATION. We are actually doing very well. They have friends here so it is like living round the corner.
We can stay away and let them be a family unit. ,

Great that your DH is cooking. The biggest change here is my DH loves bi emoticon emoticon mmm emoticon mm emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon g salads. He actually asks for them and adds things to it. Great !!!

Friday (Days 65 and 66)

Friday, September 26, 2014

We had a busy day. We drove to the city. We dropped off a couple of boxes at a friends. We also had Hubby's bicycle so he could stop at the bicycle shop for an adjustment. That didn't take very long. From there we went to SIL's apartment to finish emptying it. I got my exercise going up and down the stairs from the storage locker to the van.

After we finished there, he took me to a used book store I like to visit when we are that end of the city. I got a couple of books on exercise for me to try. They were only $3.45 each. That is one of the reasons I like that store. emoticon

Lunch came next. The Running Factory is very close to the restaurant where we ate. I went in and got a new pair of running shoes and some socks. The young man who waited on me was very nice. I enjoyed chatting with him. He will be running in the international half marathon that my son and daughter are running in October.

Next we stopped at Best Buy. The battery in my Fitbit is supposed to last for 6 months. It has been 'eating them up'. I am lucky if I get a week. A friend has a 'gadget' he wears on his wrist. We looked but since I had been in touch with Fitbit before we left the house, we didn't actually buy anything.

Our last stop was for Hubby to get new flights for his darts. He is thinking about joining a dart league that starts tonight. He got what he wanted and we came home. emoticon

At suppertime, I got word that Fitbit will replace my Zip. I am very happy with that news. It will be here in about a week.

We were up early so that Hubby could get ready to go to the hospital to start his volunteering. He was to be there for 8 a.m. It went well and he will go back again next Wednesday.

Pictures were posted from the Run for Heroes Marathon 10K, half and full marathon. I spent time looking through them looking for people I recognize.

    My husband volunteered at two different hospitals, and it was a wonderful experience. He had to quit due to physical limitations, but still treasures the memories and friends he made. It makes a great difference in patients hospital experience to see a smiling face. Give him a big hug and tell him how proud you are of him.

    What a nice Memento. You can proudly put it in a room for the world to see.
It is great Ted is volunteering, is he retired now?

We get a shirt for the Komen walk but they are all huge I did try to shrink them. The kids swim with them on to block out the sun when they swim in the pool. HUGS PAT in Maine.

Day 63 exercise emoticon

My legs are starting to feel better. Today was a nice day. I walked downtown this morning for a haircut. This afternoon I walked to the library to pick up a book I requested. We will be up early tomorrow morning. Hubby is going to start volunteering at the hospital. Tomorrow he has his orientation.
