Call me crazy…just found out that I didn’t hit publish last night on my long post I wrote so when it was sitting on here when I hit new post I sent it out anyway…LOL all that hard work…dam it I want credit for it.!!!!
So been a busy morning….I was up and was at the lab at 7:25a to get my blood work done…I like to get in and out and not sit in the waiting room with real sick people…LOL then off to the gym for my 9a session…my trainer was standing there and offered to do our session early so by 8:15a I was getting my sweat on…LOL finished that and was in the pool before the 9a water aerobics class and got an hour of that in and then did my jog in place in the pool for twenty minutes…wow that was a lot for me, the one who hates exercise…really enjoyed the morning; felt I accomplished something for me…..
Got home and took the night dressing off the dogs leg and she had a bunch of staples that had ripped apart, not from her chewing or anything, but just walking in and out of the house to go outside to do her business, and where its located on her leg is where it takes the full brunt of her weight when she walks… so off to the vet we went…he cleaned it up, took out the staples and smothered it antibiotic ointment, wrapped it up and put her on oral antibiotics and we go back on Saturday…looks like it might be a long haul….its like having a sick child..hoh hummmm
Well onto the good news….since we were at the vets and I was sitting right in front of the scale: we were the only ones in the waiting room as we are always early for our appointments and everyone was out for lunch….should I, why not…off came my shoes, and anything else that might weigh me down….my husband shaking his head…I stepped on the scales….yipppeee I lost 5 pounds since last Friday, bring my weight loss to 58#’s (big sigh)…I have only 18 more pounds to go to my next goal I set for myself…some thing is working…amazing how exercising, eating right and a positive attitude can make the weight melt off….yay….
While I was in the pool today, we were all lined up at the edge doing our cool down exercises, one of the women mentioned I was using the most resistant water buoys that were there and she thought I should take it easy, why am I working so hard?? This is why I don’t talk to people in the gym..it took all I had to be nice, but I was so I told her that if I was going to show up to exercise why not make it worth my while…I didn’t feel I was pushing myself and believe me I don’t take any chances in regards to hurting myself….she just said wellllllll all drawn out, you should go slower. The instructor had been standing above us, not really involved in the conversation, however she bent down and told me congratulations, you get it!!! Made me feel good….I am not at the gym to make BFF’s or take unasked for advice….hum…..makes me think she might not be working as hard as she should be….anyway I left there feeling fantastic..
Got my new swim suit in the mail today….crazy!! Did I say swim suit….LOL I told my husband I waited to by one until I was sure I was really going to stick with it. I am tired of wearing a pair of shorts that hang down and make me feel very subconscious of myself and my tank top is more like a wet t-shirt contest look…aghhhh just what I don’t want….lol and then not to speak of the air bubbles that arise from my shorts and top in the water…LOl anyway I don’t think I have bought a swim suit since grade school…its always been cut offs and tank tops and in some instances skinny dipping….LOL not enough private swim holes around here for that…LOL (it really doesn’t look like that – LOL)
Ending my day with an intake of 723 calories…. and I am full…been eating a lot of squash…..I like to cut them and dry fry them with a little pam spray, and lots of spices….and an eggbeaters omelet…I add lots of jalepenos and onions to my food, and always use homemade salsa that a friend of mine makes…I have been buying salsa from her for over 10 years….its yummy on everything, so needless to say I must be doing something correct in my eating….yeah!!
Arthritis flaring its ugly head in my shoulders, I am thinking I may need to back off a couple of the machines that use my shoulders or back off on the weight level…plus it was 93′ here today…I though that it was cooling off..but doesn’t look like it….so some times even thought the heat is nice…it plays hell with some of the joints…..oh well it won’t stop me!!!!
so until tomorrow….
