emoticon 3/30 Super windy! 60 mph + Dust all over!! Supposed to continue tomorrow too!!

emoticon Hope all's okay with you... miss you!

emoticon May have been my last PT today... I'll be seeing Doc/PA tomorrow to see if they are going to extend PT. Feeling a little improvement but anything over 3000 steps a day is very painful at night and the next day it takes longer to get into my groove. Getting ready for our trip next week. Hope the long drive won't be too restrictive. Bringing my bands with me and will find some way to use them along the way.

emoticon Don't know whether I'll be able to sign in while I'm on our trip the 7th thru the 16th. I don't have a "smart phone" and I'm not sure whether I'm going to take my laptop. I'll text you every once and a while....

Take care! emoticon emoticon

emoticon 3/27 Windy & cool - got caught under a couple of clouds but not enough rain to get rid of the pollen.

emoticon Norm's eye appointment went somewhat well... took a shot in his eye but at least no restrictions for altitude or weight. (Yea! CA we're a coming!) We'll check in again for another shot in a month and hopefully will see some progress of sealing any "bleeders." There is a small growth again near the previous operation site but it may not have to be surgically removed at least not in near future. Pressure is good in both eyes and he actually was able to read the 3rd line after the large E which is a definite improvement. (20/100) He couldn't even see the E at all when this all started last year. Slow progress but moving in the right direction!

Walked just over 3300 steps today and just did my "home exercises" for my knee for about 20 minutes. Have PT tomorrow after a week off because of the allergies hitting me and my "wheels." Feeling a little better, but still have the "cough" which seems to just linger. We were looking for air purifiers today for Norm's bedroom. If I just stay inside my apartment with the air conditioning on, I don't do too badly.

Hope all's well with you guys! emoticon emoticon

Pollen still permeates the air! Cough, cough.... emoticon

emoticon Finishing up some St. Pat's corned beef. Very lean because the broth/soup is fat free and full of cabbage, carrots, onions, and a small red potato. Really got my money's worth on that crock pot... lasted for a lot of meals.

Weighed in and was down to 223.5... not too bad since I was up to 235 early this month.

Will be with Norm tomorrow afternoon hoping for the best on his eye exam. May not be able to post until Tuesday or Wednesday. Hope all's well!

Finally home as of yesterday.... but, unfortunately the allergies really knocked me out this last week. When I went to PT on Monday they took one look at me and sent me home. Norm is just as bad and I ended up taking Uber home on Tuesday night. We're both a little better today, but decided to cancel his trainer & my PT another day until next week. Hope we can knock this nasty chest congestion out soon. Probably won't be getting together until Monday when we see the eye doc again. I know Norm is concerned that we may not be able to go on the CA trip if the doc says he can't drive there. Just taking a day at a time....

Lost some weight, but only because of feeling so yucky to eat. Having soup, tea, and hot apple cider vinegar toddies tends to be a self-induced fast. Should be back to a normal meal this weekend I hope.

Hope all's well with both of you! Have a good weekend! emoticon emoticon

Need to burn more calories for the day to balance out my calories in vs. out. Will try to get my steps up.

Activities=I spent the day with the folks so I was sitting for the most part but I did get at least 250 steps per hour. I did grocery shopping for the parents this morning and for us this afternoon. I walked for 10 minutes before I shopped this afternoon. I put my Fitbit in my pocket to get credit for my steps in the store.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! We did not have corned beef and cabbage! We had steak and asparagus...yum!

Busy day today - BCRW Luncheon - State Treasurer, Dan Schwartz was our speaker. Seems like I never get to eat lunch until dinner (doggy bag) when I'm at the head table - too much to keep me busy so I don't have time to eat. LOL
emoticon Finally have a day with my Honey tomorrow! Happy St. Pat's Day to you & your Hubby!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon Had good PT's on Monday and today. Today I had an older therapist and he maneuvered my knee into new, interesting positions to see if he could relieve the nerve pain I have on the outside of my knee up into my thigh. I'll see if it helped more after a night of rest.

emoticon Yesterday went to see La La Land. First movie I've seen for a long time.

Exercise minutes: 3/11 - 60 minutes, plus 10 on recumbent bike - Steps: 2973
