Wanna hear about all the boring? Okay, fine, I’ll tell you. You’re sure, right? 😂
Started out with a great doctor visit. No fever when we got there of course. She told him as long as his fever stays gone, he can go to school. Thank God for that!!! He was at 98.2 last night so he’s there.
For about 2 hours after we got home yesterday, I piddled around the house and walked the dog a couple of times until my Mom left for some church birthday party at 1:45. Then I attacked her pantry which had everything BUT food in it. I took all of the tools and household items and put them in the correct closet. I took all of her paper plates, cups, plastic silverware, napkins, and the MANY napkin rings she owns and moved them all into a cabinet. I moved my baking stuff (all over the floor of the pantry since I moved in) into another cabinet. I’m not done with the pantry. She still has 2 rows of crap left in it but I am getting there! It is starting to look like a food pantry and not a catch-all finally! I think it will be very nice to have all the food and cooking stuff in one place instead of scattered wherever she felt like having it that day.
I talked to Mr. 95 year old around 3pm yesterday and he told me, “I’m not going tonight, I would be eating alone. My friends aren’t going.” so that took care of that. I didn’t want to be out in the cold (it’s back down in the 50’s!) and rain anyway. I got a package in the mail and yes, I am broke, but I ordered gym gloves and a phone arm holder so I don’t keep hurting my hands on the machines and I don’t have to hold or find somewhere for my phone to be. I have left my phone in other machines so many times already it’s not even funny how much I needed this.
I went to the gym and did all 16 weight machines that I use. 3 sets of 12 reps each. I was very happy with myself. I said hello to a few people I’m getting to know too. My moms friend saw me and grabbed me and told me to come get her when I’m going to the gym. Ummm, no thanks? 😂
I also got a book from Alex Heyne (the Modern Health Monk) and I’m excited to start reading it. I was too tired to start it last night.
I came home from the gym and popped an Alaskan cod dinner and a salmon dinner in the oven for my Mom and I while she napped on the couch. When it was finished, I took it out and then walked Amber. While I was waiting for it to cook, I ate a couple of cheese crackers and drank a little lactose free 2% milk and started to feel sick when I came back from the walk. I told my Mom to go ahead and eat and then wrap up the leftovers and stick them in the fridge. I came upstairs to my room and got in bed. Asleep by 9. Not like me at all! I’m not allowed to get sick. Pray hard! The only 2 jobs I have left his week are today and tomorrow so I can’t get sick! I still don’t feel that great but not sick (yet).
My foot was killing me last night too and I only had 6500 steps for the day. It felt like I ran a marathon on it though. I go back to the podiatrist on Monday so he can look at it. Maybe there’s an issue with the inserts? Who knows. It doesn’t hurt this morning and today is cardio day so I guess I’ll use the bike again. I don’t want my feet to hurt.
I am taking the couple to their audiologist again today to get hearing aids fitted. The husband was joking at dinner Tuesday night how if he doesn’t want to listen to his caregiver, he will just turn it off. Wow dude. I know she thinks it’s her way or the highway but you’re just going to tune her out completely? Wow. People crack me up. My mom forgot to put hers on yesterday and every time I spoke to her, I had to yell.
I lost 2.6 pounds!!! I think I have my weight figured out. I weigh one amount. The next week I gain .2 to .4, the next week I gain another.2 to .4, then I drop over 2 pounds. Fun when you are trying to lose weight, let me tell you. 🙄 Today I am 209. Only 10 pounds until I am in what people call Onederland. That’s not far away hopefully! And 209 means I need to lose 34 more pounds total. How exciting!!!
I went over my calories by a few yesterday since I just popped a few cheese cubes instead of eating the fish I cooked.
It looks fine to me! What do you think of going over your goal by 16 calories?
That’s it for today. I may work on the pantry a bit more. Nothing much else! Have a good day. I’m sure I will when I get a free moment.
