My Life, one day at a time!
No Sun Yet😞

No Sun Yet😞

Hello Doodlebugs!

I hope that every one had a Great Valentines Day.  Since we live where you can see all of the traffic, the traffic was unbelievably heavy last night about 6.  I am sure people where headed out for dinner.  We had a nice quiet evening at home with great  food and wine.

Another day of a great walk and then a really good lift.  Today I did:

1 Arm Rows  3 sets of 8 maxing out at 25 lbs

Lots of Lunges

2 Arm Overhead Tri Bench 3 sets of 8 maxing out at 25 lbs

Hip Thrusts

Lots of Jumping Jacks

Kick Backs  3 sets of 8 maxing out at 25 lbs

Run in Place and LOTS of Sprints

Leg Press 4 sets of 8 each maxing out at 160 lbs

Overhead Rope Tri 3 sets of 8 each maxing out at 45 lbs

I worked up a good sweat today, which I normally do not do, it is really hard for me to actually work up a sweat, and this felt GREAT!  Tomorrow is my last work out day than two days off!

Today was infusion day, I am getting better and faster at this, but it still hurts.  I do not mind the Enbrel injection at all any more, but this is still a pain.  I am sure that I will eventually get used to this as well.  It is the bruises all over my legs that are kind of embarrassing.  And, I need to drink twice as much today to flush this through my system, lets all take a BIG drink!

I did actually do some work today, but I also got through another closet, WOW, how do two people collect so MUCH CRAP in such a small space.  I had one big bag of trash, three bags I am taking to the people at the front desk, they may want some of this, and one big bag for Good Will.  This really cleaned up the closet!!!!  Tomorrow, I am going to try to get through one kitchen cupboard.

I am also trying to make my home office more user friendly.  For those of you who work from home, how do you this?  I am thinking of magazine holders to hold some of my files.  I am open for any and all suggestions, please send me your ideas, or pictures of what you do to keep organized!!!  PLEASE!!!

Have I mentioned we are going to Honolulu soon?  I am looking for the names of good gluten free restaurants there.  If anyone has suggestions please send to me!

I amaze myself how much better I feel when things get organized! And did I mention how much flowers can brighten my day?IMG_2655Not too mention, the vase was my grandmothers, so a very special vase to me!

My meals have been little hit am miss today, I have been busy, plus, I have a good dinner planned.  I am simmering chicken thighs in chicken broth, and I will serve this over potatoes.  I am hungry just thinking of this!  I try to take pictures and share tomorrow.

The Olympics again.  We watched the women GS last night and some of the speed skating.  I am so envious of these young athletes.  Their drive, ambition, dedication are just awesome!  Go USA Olympians!

Do you have plants in your homes?  I have some, when we lived in our house I had plants EVERYWHERE!  Plants are good for you and the air.  I have a few in our condo, and am thinking of trying to start some mint.  I like mint, and I had a plant some time ago, but the plant died.  If I get some started, I will share pics with you.  Have you tried taking a mint leave and wrapping it around an olive, or some cheese?  Try this and let me know what you think.

AnyWho!  back to work for me.  Come back tomorrow and I will have more tidbits for you.

Remember, to hydrate, drink lots of water, be active, get up and move, be happy, keep a smile on your face, and live life like there is no tomorrow, since tomorrow is a promise to no one.

xoxoxo till next time!
