September 29, 2007 — Just 4 Today

Just 4 Today I'llJust 4 Today, I’ll drink my fiber twice (done once!), drink 2 liters of water (about 1/2), walk 5 miles (yesterday — 4.84), NOT eat between meals & NOT take seconds.

I announced in the comments yesterday that mister passed his stress test with flying colors!  He’s still got blood pressure that’s a little too high, but the doc changed his medication a little for that.  And the doc said that he won’t need to take the test again.  Sadly, he forgot to wear his pedometer during his stress test, so he didn’t get any credit for that 10 minute run.

We learned yesterday that another of the kids (the girl) will be moving in with us for a while.  So, I’ll be inside today moving things around (throwing things away) to make space for her and her dog.  I’m sure I’ll find a lot of excuses to take a break and poke my head in here.

What are you going to do today?

My Daily Affirmation

Just today, I’m not going to eat between meals and I’m not going to take seconds. And I’ll weigh myself and use Nutribase and the tools of The Hacker’s Diet to help me reach (and keep) my goals.

I’m home for the weekend. This morning mister has a Stress Test & I’m going with him. I’m worried about it. It seems like those often reveal pretty serious problems. I guess it’ll be good to know the facts. But I’m still nervous.

And now I’ll repeat what I wrote in a comment yesterday just ’cause I’m THAT happy:

These are the pages I worked on. I didn’t do the design or first draft of the code. But, I did a lot of cleanup and graphics: Kids pages & October Activities for Kids & Teen Pages.

It was all scheduled to go live at 10 am & I made the deadline!

Oh, and in a few minutes, I’ll be watching Bruce Springsteen (BRUCE!) on the Today Show. I KNEW I should have gone to New York for the Weekend! :)

Well, today’s the big day — My projects come due later this morning.  Somehow everything came together yesterday.  And it looks like we’ll have some shiny new pages later today on our website.

ALSO yesterday, I continued to do those foot exercises.  AND I’m going to start wearing athletic shoes to work for a week or so.  AND we’re wondering if the pain is from a new “foot rest” I’ve been using.  Which isn’t a foot rest at all — just mister’s amplifier.  The pain in my left foot especially got very bad last night after I had my foot up on the thing for several hours.   SO, I’m not going to be doing THAT for a while.

Thank you very much for your kind comments and thoughts.  We’ve got a wonderful support group, don’t we?  After today, I’ll be around a lot more — I’ve got a 3-day weekend!! And I’m off tomorrow!!
