Doctor day

Well, my son is going to the doctor today. I think he’s pretty much better. Before bed, his temperature was 99.7 so almost normal. Yay! I hope he’s good this morning. We just need that silly doctors note for school so his absences are excused. I just hope his temperature is normal when he wakes up this morning. Then the doctor will say he can go to school today and I will have to remind them the school rules to have him go back tomorrow. Seeing these children die from the flu had me scared. My son is okay with me here though. I’ve been checking on him frequently and making sure he’s hydrated and fever not going up too high. I told him from now on, he needs to make sure he washes his hands when he leaves the gym no matter what as well as washing his hands after every other encounter with friends or adults. Not being able to get the flu shot (allergies) can be sucky but we can stay healthy!

Dinner with the couple: Well, they just rescheduled their doctors appointment so their daughter can go with them. Oookkkk. Then we headed out to dinner. We went to a French restaurant here that I had driven by dozens of times but had never noticed it. My Mom would love this place as they ha roosters everywhere as decoration .Escargot for the husband and some avocado appetizer for the wife.

The cheapest thing on the menu was chicken so that’s what I had, it was $21! And it wasn’t that great in my opinion although the green beans were divine. The husband had veal – and the wife had duck. They both enjoyed theirs. No dessert and no bottle of wine, they both just had a glass of Pinot noir.

When I dropped them back home, I changed my clothes there thinking I would go straight to the gym. Never goes according to plan. I had to stop by my house to drop my food off to my mom and grab a bottle of water. And of course Amber begged me to take her out so I did that too. My mom liked the food so that’s good.

Off to do cardio at the gym! I ended up riding the stationary bike for 30 minutes and something in my side started to hurt which is why I stopped. I thought it was gone but when I sat down on my low commode this morning, it hurt again. I will skip my abdominal machines today to give myself time to heal.

My heart rate was good and I burned a good amount of calories in those 30 minutes as well. I only went over my calories by 2 so I am happy about those numbers yet again.

Today is strength training day again. I am starting to look forward to these days. Also, the gym was pretty empty last night. I got a parking space by the door and nobody was using the bikes. I may wait to go tonight until after I take Mr. 95 year old to dinner. I enjoyed that immensely.

It’s about 7am and my mother is starting her laundry right outside my bedroom so I guess it’s time for me to get up and moving. Have a great hump day!

  1. Thanks for following my blog! A stationary bike or home trainer can be really boring. Nothing like getting out on the open road or a trail and feeling the wind in your face and the sun on your arms and legs…. when there’s sun. Anyway, looks like we’re both on health journeys, so best of luck on yours. Hopefully mine helps if you find time to read it. I don’t know how people do their own writing but also reading, liking, commenting and so on. Soon I’ll have to find a job and that will likely sap most of my energy. Anyway, keep on keepin’ on!

    1. I prefer waking outside as I donโ€™t own a bike here in the middle of Houston. I write my own blog, i like it and I can guarantee I am not a bot. ๐Ÿ˜‚
      I am enjoying my fitness journey so far, I am trying to do more as it looks like you are. I always try to write back as I have enjoyed making friends through WordPress. I read your headlines which is why I followed you! I will read them as you post them too.

      1. I’m sorry the chicken wasn’t so good! I usually don’t order chicken at restaurants because they always overcook and make it dry. ๐Ÿ˜› is that why you didn’t like your chicken so much?
