Starting to get a little sloppy again with nutrition. The sweets and bread are starting to sneak back in. For me, those two things are the most accurate gauge of how healthy I'm eating. I'm not trying to cut them completely out of my life, but it doesn't take much to let them take over! Between the weekend trip and colonoscopy, my eating got off track. Did you know that you can't eat leafy green vegetables the five days before a colonoscopy? That's something new and it threw me for a loop last week.

Sooooo, it is back to making good food decisions and moving my body. The activity shouldn't be a problem this week. We're going to be crazy busy with projects, I just need to put good things in my mouth. That being said, the blueberry rhubarb crisp that I made yesterday is NOT going in the trash. :)

Our cat Snowball does not know what to think about her spaces in the garage being rearranged. She is not real happy and wouldn't look at me last night when she came in the garage to go to bed. She just sits on the step and meows lol. Don't feel sorry for this cat. She has a special table with her food and water bowl so it doesn't sit on the floor. A shelving system she can climb with a carpeted cat hideout on the top shelf and a can house on the bottom yet she is pissed because we moved the empty box she likes to sleep in lol. 
DS is in trouble. He is not supposed to take food or drinks into the basement because he never picks up after himself. I find dried up apple cores, plates of popcorn, empty pretzel bags and crumbs of all when he is not even supposed to be taking that stuff downstairs in the first place. Last night DH comes upstairs not happy because DS left a soda can on the brand new TV stand and it left a ring and warped the surface. I've taken his xbox controllers aw[...]

I had noticed a hole in my yard a week or so ago, and now I know:  I've got a burgeoning bunny family in there. Saw the baby both last night and this morning, just hanging out right by it -- not really moving AT ALL (I probably got within a few feet of it and it didn't even seem to twitch at all). Saw what I think it the mama bunny this morning. I guess I never really knew where bunnies had nests, but apparently they dig holes? I'll do what I can to protect without interfering. :)
Up early to do grocery shopping before mobs hit the store. Then an easy 3 miles outside. Now I really need to be productive and I just haven't gotten up the motivation to get up off the couch yet.

Pull Drill - Focus will be on learning to 'catch' the water with your forearm and pull yourself through the water. If you feel your lats (the muscles under your arm pits that go down the side of your back) engage, then you are starting to get it. If your shoulders are tired, then you are still using too much shoulder and not enough lats.

Kick (Regular) - regular kickboard kick or kick on back with hands over head, fingers locked.

Doc sent me for blood work yesterday after my appointment to test thyroid levels and some other things. My medication dosage has been increased very slightly. Blood results should be back by Wednesday and I have a follow-up appointment with doc on Thursday to discuss. If my levels are in range, the plan is to keep on on the slightly increased dose for another few weeks. If I still am not feeling better then I should go to an Endocrine specialist that can work with me on a different type of thyroid medication (natural vs synthetic). I have very mixed feelings about this. Just hoping the increased dose will help.
Oh - the doc also wanted to discuss my allergy and asthma medications since I was wheezing and coughing. I can't deal with that now, too. One thing at a time. I know things are not the best, but I am hoping some of this pollen will go away and it will get better. It doesn't help that the condo we rent doesn't have A/C (not many places along the coast have it since i[...]

Wanted to ride today but didn't get to it boo. Swam then had to go shopping for wedding clothes for DS and I for my nieces wedding next weekend. Found nothing for me but a couple of shirts for DS. Then some quick grocery shopping because the neighborhood kids are eating all of our food all the time. When I got home DH and I decided to clean the garage and there went the rest of the afternoon. It was after 4:00 when we finally finished. Cat hair everywhere. We rearranged a bunch, threw away a bunch, swept up a bunch of cat hair. Check that project off of the summer vacation things to do list! 

HASfit 20 min abs workout but your working more than just your abs in this one.

Went out early this morning to get a good parking spot at the Honor Ride. I had originally planned to park here in town and ride one way, but found out that all of the bling was at the finish line, so I opted for the shorter route. 15 miles is about my upper limit these days. It was a nice day to ride. Overcast, not too hot and a relatively flat course. Almost didn't go because I have so much to do here, but I decided since I paid for it, I may as well get the benefit of riding. Really happy I went - of course that's almost always the way it happens. Good way to start the weekend! Now, back to painting.....
