Tidbit Tuesday

Here are the random thoughts roaming about my head today…

Wondering what to do without kiddos for 2 days – will be the first time in 14+years that hubby and I have been on our own for more than a few hours.

DD is on her way to New Orleans for a Youth Gathering with other members of our church. She is hoping to do some exploring along with the scheduled activities. She will return on Monday.

DS will leave for his first overnight stay without  a parent. He is going to a sleepover camp for 3 nights. I hope he does okay.

I still have some soreness in my knee but no longer any pain. I’m still having difficulty walking or being on it for long. Not sure what the next move is.

Had some zucchini from the garden last night and I will be picking the last of the lettuce as it is starting to bolt. Need to water everything tomorrow morning.

We have an ant invasion going on. DH put out some traps and we’ll see how they work. It would help if I could get my kids to keep food where it belongs and not sneak it other places.

Think that’s about it for now.

Here are the random thoughts rolling around my head today …

Well, I’ve had a little setback. I did something to my leg at boot camp yesterday and I’m in quite a bit of pain. Didn’t go today and don’t think I will be able to go tomorrow. I’ve been resting, icing and elevating my leg – hopefully it will take care of things. I really hope I didn’t do anything too serious.

It has cooled down here at last. It has been comfortable the past couple of days. Still need some rain for the garden but things are doing okay.

Since I’ve been resting I was able to finish two books. Slowly I am whittling my pile down. It would go faster if I could stay away from the library.

The kiddos are getting on each others nerves and I’m getting tired of refereeing. Wish I could  be better at staying calm and finding things for them to do. I always have good intentions for the summer but not enough energy to follow through.

Guess that is it for today – I’ll be back on Thursday.

Here are the random thoughts running through my head today…

I turned 50 yesterday – don’t feel any different. Did have a wonderful day – DH made me steak, DD made the salad and DS made the cake. It was a very nice day.

I did go out and walk yesterday and today even though it is very cold out.

I’m thinking about my menu for the party on Saturday and trying to plan all that needs to be cleaned and/or tidied up.

I’m watching the snow fall and hoping it won’t be too bad when we go to karate class.

I’m having pain in my shoulder and I don’t think it is going to go away. I had hoped it would but it doesn’t seem to be happening. May need to call the doctor and get it checked out.

I’m excited because DH has decided to make working on the house a priority this year! I can’t wait for some things to finally get done around here.

That’s it for this week – Have a great day!

Fitness Friday

I am getting frustrated because I can’t seem to move the scale and I’m not seeing  progress. I should be glad that the scale hasn’t moved since I have been eating a lot lately. I seem to be constantly thinking about food and it is difficult not to eat all day long.

I did manage to meet the goals I set last week. I walked an average of 11836 steps and managed to eat more fruit and veggies. It helps that berries are coming in season now and are much more available and affordable.

I need to get in some kind of exercise along with my walking. I can’t do too much right now because I am recovering from a fall I had earlier in the week. I was goofing around with my son and we fell on the sidewalk. I tried to avoid landing on him and ended up banging up my knee, elbow and hand. They are definitely colorful now. I think I may have pulled/strained something in the one arm because it is definitely painful to move it in certain ways. Hopefully they will heal soon and I can start to do something along with the walking.
