I might try to put some weight on it later. Right now it is up and I have taken my meds and it is under some ice. Or I'll drag out the yoga ball and knit while sitting on it.

Wow, I'm even.more out of shape than I knew.  I got on the Wii Fit for the first time in 277 days & for the first time in my life, I was called overweight.  And the graph went pretty substantially into the overweight level.  Yikes.  It's definitely time.

So I did 20 minutes of Wii cardio (boxing & rhythm parade).  Not much, but I'm sweaty & out of breath & it's q start.

Ah Larissa, what fun would that be is we can't watch. :laugh: Great job on the 20 minute work out. :-*


Jen I sure hope the knee gets better. Sit on that ball. I used to have one it does more than you think. Don't have room for it now.


After I finish check up on all my e-mails I am going for a walk. I will report when I get back.

Well I got my walk in 1.7 miles today about 3770 steps. That is if my pedometer is right. I have not used it in a long time. Goal as Dr. Oz would say need 10,000 a day, that will be the goal. I will wear it the rest of the day and see what it amounts to.


Good luck everybody with your work our today. ^-^

Was going for a walk today, but another really bad day for Jaeden, he has been up since about 2:30 a.m., woke me at 4 and I did not go to bed til 2 so I am a bit of a monster today and so was he.

I will try again tomorrow.

Not sure Monika, I am at my wits end with this child.  I simply do not know what to do with him.  I try to make things fun, but there is a certain amount of work that must be done on worksheets for portfolio and he is more like a mule than a child.  Much more of this and I may just have to give up.  Causing too much stress on this old heart especially since we were served yesterday with 'motion for default'.  bank foreclosure is moving forward again and without work, not sure what we are going to do or where we are going to go.

Oh, well the Lord will provide.

Hope everyone is feeling better today.

I'm so sorry, Pam. That's a tough situation.


I was able to walk on the treadmill today after dance. 33 minutes (had to finish the chapter I was on) Knee is a little sore and the other is starting to hurt. Meds again tonight.

So sorry, Pam.  You've had enough.

20 minutes of zumba & a bunch of carrot sticks.  I'm voting for sushi for dinner.

I am going to walk off this stress tomorrow a.m. while his mother handles him or perhaps walks with me.  He could use a good run about. 

I appreciate all the good thoughts from everyone.  But I have faith that everything will work out just the way it is supposed to.  just because I don't know how that is going to be does not mean anything.  There is a saying, not sure from where "it is always darkest just before the dawn".

Thank you and my prayers are always with you all.
