Cold and wet

Sunday, December 21, 2014

Cold outside, which is "duh! You live in Wisconsin and it is December!" Wet, in the pool. Where I dragged myself and worked for a half hour

I planned to do more. Wanted to do more. But their Christmas music was on a 20 minute loop. By the time I changed and was in the water, it was half through loop 1, by the time I had done 30 minutes of exercise it was beginning loop 3. I had already had all I could stand. I didn't even hit the whirlpool. Yes. It was that bad.

Tomorrow? Earplugs. Definitely.

    Maybe they will have better music next time. I suggest bringing a CD and asking them to play that while you are there. Couldn't hurt.

It was unseasonably warm here, 40 degrees and misting rain. All. Day. But a missing outdoor cat came home after hunting mice or something, looking healthy and big as ever. YAY/

A start

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

A slow one, but it's a start.

I have already done a coach Nicole spark video and it is just now 6am! I also tracked my breakfast and intended lunch.

I hear engines outside, so I am guessing I have more exercise later shoveling snow. I will get the boys to do some, if not most. I need to burn calories, not get hurt.

Hubs should be in sometime tomorrow. He has another treatment Friday morning for the spot the pathologist can't identify. Sigh. It is always something.

It is easier when I remember to just let God handle it. And starting ng back with the my food and exercise helps too.

Now I need to get off the internet and finish Christmas socks to get shipped!

Happy Wednesday!

    Trusting God and taking care of yourself are good steps to take!

Put one foot in front of the other...

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

emoticon emoticon emoticon I'm sure you recognize the song from the old Christmas cartoon. It resembles my attitude today. One step at a time.

Today, the step was dragging my big butt (please, no comments about needing to feel good about myself at any size. I have to be honest with myself if I am going to change) into the kitchen and making lower calorie foods for while I'm knitting socks for Christmas presents.

I pulled out 2 slices of salami-turkey salami, no less!, a plastic measuring cup-which I filled with raw broccoli, cauliflower and carrots (1 cup) and some saltines.

I did not bake biscuits, fry eggs, and heat sausages gravy. Or eat a box of donuts. Or a plateful of cookies.

I am planning on working out a recipe for turkey sausage gravy for later. I have my substitutes ready for baking, too.

The exercise is going to be a whole different story. Sigh. I will get there...eventually.

Now, off to do a quick exercise video, then back to the socks!!

This is creepy

Monday, December 15, 2014

My mother is having family send her video of my aunt's memorial service. That is creepier than taking photos at a funeral! Ewww!

I get it with celebrities and royalty and such, but not for us "regular folk". My southern relatives taking photos at funerals used to really give me the willeys, too.

I understand wanting photos of the flowers and such, but not while people are there.

And if you want photos with people who you don't see often that came, go outside, go to another room, or at least step away from the casket or urn.

She better not expect me to watch that with her! It is not going to happen.

    I don't know about this.
BUT if you can just film stuff for her so you don't have to pay for her to go every where, maybe it can be used as a good thing. You can send videos of holiday lights, birthday parties as well. It doesn't have to be all sad events. And that way she isn't completely left out.

I always said that most of the time the only time my extended family got together was at funerals! Sigh.
They did Christmas at least. And graduations, they were big on every one's graduation from anything, even grade school too.

Finally got my boy home...

Saturday, December 13, 2014

Neither of us is happy with frontier airlines. But he is home and safe. And his boss is willing to let him make up the hours he lost.

The airline only answers customer service calls from 8-11am and is refusing to return calls or answer email so far. We gave them over 24 hours to respond, then posted negative review with the facts. I also opted out of having them appear whenever I do a travel search from now on.

My Aunts memorial service is later today out in California. I will call my mother later, but I refused to help her go, so she is at home. The family did and does NOT need her drama and needing to be the center of attention. Sigh. I am dealing with her as best I can.

I will be glad when I can get back to a decent schedule. Being up at 2:30am is not working when I have to be up all day every day to keep the boys on schedule and the rat dog from weeing things.

Hubs will be home again next week. He has freight that has to come back to Milwaukee for Thursday. Since the Dr office called to say their pathologist can't identify Hubs' last biopsy results so they are sending the slides to someone else to look at, I stopped to talk to Dr directly. She said bring him in next week if I can so she can go ahead and treat the site deeper than she did when she removed the spot and cauterized it.

Yep. Praying hard, as usual. I can do this. Starting to get back in line with my weight loss will help my mental state immensely. It will be the one thing in my control. The rest is God's to handle.

Have a great weekend.
