A wonderful spring day……NOT!!!


On my way to the gym…


Had to let the suburban warm up 15 minutes before I could even see out of the window.

The creek is thawing and even though you can’t see it there is steam coming up which made the brush fat with frost.

Speaking of fat…mine is disappearing. Check this out…


Oh there’s more to go but I have a shape. And it’s not an apple anymore.

I ended up going to the chiropractor today after my work out. I got dizzy again, my hip was killing me and I could not put my head down without pain in my left arm. So he said, I have a pinched nerve in my neck, I’m not eating enough before I go and work out, my shoes suck and he is very proud of all the work I’ve done. Oh and he wants me to change my workout routine. Remember I was complaining about dizziness and some of it is my blood sugar but some of it is I’m working out harder then my blood can pump so I am to do my running, then my upper body exercises, then my middle and end with my legs. Swimming is the excellent ending to a good work out so I’m going to try and do that more often. Today the big pool was cold (new water with a cleaning last Sunday so takes a bit to warm up) so I swam in the little pool. Had it to myself and just floated and back stroked around it. Today’s workout used up 1752, the most yet.

I am so tired tonight. I was gone from 7:30 this morning until 3:30 this afternoon. I didn’t only go and exercise, I also did my cleaning job for 2 1/2 hours, the chiropractor, the thrift store where I found a new to me spring jacket, met my dad to help him get a new DVD/VCR player and then a visit with mama on the way home (daddy was still in town). I got home and carried in wood, did a load of laundry and collapsed on the couch for a 15 minute nap with Wilbur (this is where Jim and Mike found me when they got home).


Now I’m starved so better go see what’s on the menu (I didn’t plan ahead so hopefully it’s an easy supper).

I hope you all had a great day. Tomorrow is a work day and then I have a full weekend off. We were suppose to go snow tubing but the place we go closed so not sure what’s planned now, cross country skiing? Bowling? We’ll find out tomorrow. Take care my friends and have a blessed evening.

Yeah, I don't understand what is up with this weather. I woke up to snow also. And cold. And no hot water! Grrrr!!

The weight loss is showing ... just keep it up! :) Have a great weekend off!

Wish you and Wilbur could come on down here and enjoy some 80 degree weather! You were so busy! But isn't it nice to have the energy to do it? LOVE the snowmen!

Julie, it sounds like you had a great, yet busy, day. It is funny, I really enjoy those days where I work hard enough all day long that I just collapse at the end of the day.

Grats on the continued losses!
