Wow, what a month!

Saturday, March 29, 2014

Since joining Spark People nearly 5 years ago, March 2014 was my slowest month. To date, I have only 615 fitness minutes (due to no time available to me, I may have forgotten to insert my information) for this month. April is just around the corner and it will be a better month. I did gain some weight again, but surprisingly, it wasn't that much.

For those who responded to my blogs regarding my husband I wish to thank you for your thoughtfulness. He is up and about and is basically back to normal now. This morning, he did some leg exercises because he laid and sat down for a month or so. It's great having him doing his thing again.

emoticon to you all. Lise

    Lise, I'm so glad things are looking up for you and your DH. Praise the Lord that he is able to get up now and is healing, and I pray for renewed strength, including in his legs.

Happy April (in advance).

    Glad you are both home and he is feeling better - there are days, weeks, and sometimes months or even years when the challenges that surround us simply require that we simply HANG ON - until the storms pass and then pick ourselves back up and move forward again recovering the lost gains and making progress. I wish you an awesome APRIL

I'm happy to be back online!

Friday, March 07, 2014

Thank you all for the encouragement sent our way. My husband is back home and is recovering quite well. On Saturday morning, we just need to go in to change the bandages and do follow-up visits to the doctor's office but that's it. I'm taking his temperature morning and night just in case he starts a fever but that's nothing.

Yesterday, I was able to start my exercise routine again. I went easy... After nearly two weeks of doing nothing, it is best to start in a reasonable manner.

I'm glad to have him home and happy to be back online!

Hugs. Lise

Hubby still in hospital.

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

Hello everybody. This is to let you know that my husband is still in the hospital but we expect him to come out either tomorrow (Thursday the 6th or Friday the 7th). He's doing really well and is in good spirit. I do spend my entire day and evening with him. By the time I come home at night I am exhausted and usually just relax in front of the TV for a bit until I come upstairs to sleep.

Busy these days! Husband in hospital.

Monday, February 24, 2014

Lately, I've not been online much. My husband has been hospitalized and had some surgery this last Saturday. He's recuperating well but he does need help getting around. This week will be taken up by my being with him but I will try to come online when I come home at night or early in the morning.

Hugs. Lise

I admire how many hours of exercise you achieve and how active you are with the "spark". I am sure all of that will help to keep you strong.

Take care,

More quotes from Nelson Mandela

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

On Al Jazeera News, I was watching part of Mandela's commemoration in Johannesburg. I wish I could have been there...

Here are some more of his famous quotes:

"Lead from the back and let others believe they are in front."

emoticon

"There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living."

emoticon

"Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies".

emoticon

"One of the tings I learned when I was negotiating was that until I changed myself, I could not change others."

emoticon

"if you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart."

emoticon

"Where you stand depends on where you sit."

emoticon
