Luck meets Preparation

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Had a wonderfully restful day yesterday. Went for a long walk in the morning and then prepared some food which should last a couple of days. I also worked on some gadgets. I also slept alot so I feel rested. My son is on mid-term from today until Tuesday. He's got lots of plans and I told him he has to include getting in some community service. Today is parent's teacher conference. My mom will go for me.

I am 1/2 way through a Weight Loss challenge - we're about to complete 6 weeks. I'm doing better than the last time I did it but only marginally better. So this weekend I'm really going to concentrate on keeping within calorie range. I never get points okay maybe i got points once for that aspect of the challenge. I'm doing really good eating freggies. But I want to lose weight.

    With all the exercise you do, I'd think you could eat anything you want.

Get Back to Business

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

I can feel myself recovering - got up 2 days in a row and went for a walk - a real stroll - aim is to make a major dent in the 10k steps. I not even up to speed or power walking. The aim is to just get in the routine of getting up in the morning. Of course I have a new gadget - (another) wireless headphone - so I'm practising using the controls to operate the device - Ipod. I'll then move to the Iphone because it can answer the calls etc... Hopefully, by then I'll be up to jogging.

The Futile Event is over. I can now concentrate on getting some personal matters dealt with - a scholarship for DS to go to college, sell some property and look how to make some more money. Of Course - Lose Weight - Run some more Marathons - Run Faster - Become Flexible (I'll then work on becoming more flexible).

    You survived the Futile Event!

Boy, all I can say is it takes creative financing anymore to send kids to college. OMG!

Best of luck.

Watch Out World

Monday, October 20, 2014



I should have cancelled my lunch yesterday and had I known the set up I would've. It was actually a party for about 30 - 40 people. I arrived on time and saw these tables set up and chairs. I was the 1st person there. I got there about 12:45 p.m. the crowd starting arriving about 2 p.m. I left about 3:30 p.m. and it was just warming up. I thought it was going to be about 3 of us and her family. I came home and went to bed. Feeling very rested this morning. Went out for a walk this morning and so should get in my 10K steps today. I must share this - I'm drinking a Virgin Mary - Tomato juice with Tabasco sauce, lime and black pepper. I've garnished it with a stalk of celery. Me drinking tomato juice. It's part of my effort to get my freggies in. For me and DS I made an omelet that had spinach and mushrooms in it.

No Stress

Sunday, October 19, 2014

I put me 1st and reduced my stress. I didn't go to the dance. I called in my apologies. I cancelled the Sunday morning ride. Went to bed last night and this morning I'm still in bed. The electrician came, my mom dealt with him. I'll keep the lunch appointment. I am feeling better.
