sickness and health

Oh man, I was downright sick for a couple of weeks.  I still have a headache that won't quit and the pain killers I take just dull the pain.  Finally, finally, on Monday I woke up not wanting to throw up.  Yesterday I actually felt some energy in my bones, although the headache was still nagging at the back of my head.

This morning I am sitting here dressed for the gym as I type this!  It has been almost two weeks since I have been there so I am going to start off slow, maybe 20 minutes on the treadmill and a few minutes on the bike, plus some weights.

Being sick in the Summer blows, but I least I really didn't have anything that I had to be doing.  I did manage to get the kids to the pool and do a few low key things with them.  Anything to keep them off of the computers and TV!  I will admit that Netflix did become my best friend :). 

I need to fill my water bottle and get a move on!

Friday rambling

I took the kids to the pool yesterday and let them swim for almost two hours.  I didn't want to mess with showering etc. so I watched from a lounge chair on the deck.  It really was quite nice :).  No one else came to the pool while we where there so we had the whole place to ourselves. 

We stopped at the store on the way home to get the fixin's for veggie quesadillas that I made for dinner when we got home.  The kids and I took the tent down.  That thing was much easier to get up than to take down!  Or should I say roll up and fit back into the cover.  But we got 'er done. 

I finally got to sit down and watch Big Brother.  I managed to stay awake for the whole thing last night!  I'm not overly impressed with it so far, but it has potential.


I went to the gym this morning but I wasn't feeling it.  I went into the cardio cinema and set the treadmill on 3 mph and just walked it for 40 minutes.  I figured some movement was better than no movement. 

After that I went to the machines and used the leg press.  I figure if I can strengthen my legs that maybe I can preform better on the treadmill.  I also did some arm machines and then I found the calf press.  I really want to tone my calves.  I read the directions, then I sat down on the strange machine and tried to life myself up with my feet.  Nothing.  I got up, adjusted the seat, sat down and tried again.  Again, nothing.  Finally I figured out that the weight was too heavy, I couldn't budge it lol.  I adjusted down the weight and voila, it moved.  After my hydro massage I went home to pack for our camping trip.

The little kids and I gathered up what we needed, filled out back packs with clothes and necessities, and then worked on loading out little car.  Everything fit perfectly with just enough room for three people to sit comfortably. 

We are camping at a park, I knew it was close by, but after google mapping it I found that it is a whopping nine miles from our house, a 22 minute drive.  So I guess if we forgot anything I can just run home and pick it up lol.

We need to stop at the .99 cent store and get some toothbrushes and sunblock and then we will be on our way. 

I will be back Sunday or Monday with pictures and report on what a great weekend we will have had, I am hopeing :).
