Don't accept your dog's admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful.
It's already a warm humid day and I woke up with an asthma attack. Oh Goody, another first. I thought it would be nice to sleep with the windows open but apparently something triggered closing off my chest so I couldn't take a deep breath. I almost, but not quite, perfer the charlie horses. Sheesh, can't I just wake up rested and refreshed for a change?
I am going to the gym shortly. Rick is out of town so I will go alone but that is fine. I have been slacking at the gym lately. I didn't feel like I could be gone yesterday but Dan is getting around much better. I changed his dressing yesterday and he has the beginnings of a pressure sore on the top of the foot that was bothering him. It is a good thing I loosened the dressing when I did. The quaze was so tight and his legs are pretty swollen. I had a fun time putting the ace wraps on I tell you. What's wrong with Ted hose? The heart patients wear them and I am used to putting them on.
Breakfast this morning is going to be a slim fast and a banana. I am going to have a salad for lunch with a 3 oz can of salmon. Since I do not know yet what time Rick will get home tonight I am not sure about supper.
I weighed in this morning and according to my scale it is still up just the 5 pounds I knew about. I had better get busy or I will have to pay next week. I have some great things around to eat so this will be a cakewalk today. Right? RIGHT.
Well, I am off to the gym as Dan is awake. Treadmill here I come.
All done at the gym. I had a really good workout. I did the treadmill for 30 minutes + a 2 minute cool down. I set it for the incline that goes up and down and did it at a speed of 3.8. I have such short legs anything faster and I will be be running and I do not run. Then I did the weight machines. I love it. Burns so good. I haven't been to the gym for a couple of weeks. We neglect it when we ride our bikes. I suppose tomorrow I will be hurting but I plan on going tomorrow also. Lunch was the large salad I planned and Dan ate one also. I used light tuna instead of the salmon. Red onion, tomato, balsamic dressing and a sprinkling of parmesan cheese, Yummy! The rest the day is going to be spent housecleaning. The dust is unbelievable living on a gravel road. I am also on my 2nd 24 ounces of water.
