So .. its 3 am on a Sunday morning, No one is sleeping in your house.. what do you do? most folks .. wellllll.. they go back to sleep... NOT IN MY HOUSE.. we get up.. discuss riding the bike.. opt out on that.. Take the SUV and go to Waffle House at 4 am.. this is not a good decision.. (RAISIN TOAST, eggs and then sharing an order of hashbrowns)... however this was a better decision we walked Mtn Top Flea Market almost two full times up and down the big Hill.. so that was good.. we were finished by 8 am and came home and napped for a while... thennnnn we made another one of those decisions.. We went to Falafel Sunday at the local Chabad house .. visited with friends.. and had some yummy falafel.. we had fish for dinner so that was a decent choice...
Saturday we got up early and went to the club and swam for 30 minutes.. I attempted to do laps and was cut short because of the chest pain.. ( costocondritis) so I water jogged instead) then I got in the Jacuzzi for 5 minutes showered and went on about the day.. we had a fairly active weekend with some good and not so good choices.. How ever what we found more than anything epsecially with the swimming was how amazing we felt afterwards.. how good our bodies felt when we got out of the pool .. and how much better our day was .. the eating could have been tighter but the exercise was grand..
So here we are at a Monday.. I have a full work day ..
We might try and get a swim in during the week.. as we both have heavy schedules this week too..
I think we are discovering that exercise can be a much needed friend.. and healer..
Wish me well
Wish you well too

PS ~I added scanned old family photos to our flickr site in the side bar.. and I am still adding stuff to Mom and Dad's memorial blog too if you want to visit .. This Life .

Some splurges, sure, but it sounds like they were "controlled" splurges, and to me, that makes a world of difference. Glad you had a great weekend!

Sounds like you had a fun, active weekend.
I love a good falafel sandwich, too.

Sound like a good day to me! Everything in moderation is my mantra. It's not like you ordered waffles, eggs, toast, tons of nitrate-laden meat, and hasbrowns. See? Perspective is the name of the game.

I'm so happy to hear that the swimming is making a difference in how you feel. Sometimes finding those one or two workouts that make us feel good is all it takes to help us deal with stress while also making ourselves healthier. Well done!

Mountain Top!! I haven't been there in years. The last time I went I felt like I was in a foreign country. I'm alone so I didn't feel very comfortable.

Sounds like you had a good weekends and sounds like you made some good choices.

Good to know about the advances in Mammograms. I hate having them done because I have more than enough. Glad you like your new doctor. Speaking of rashes, yep, me too was right uncomfortable a few days on vacation.

Have a great week. JC

I really think being in the pool... doing the swimming or jogging... makes all the difference. I usually head to the pool first thing in the morning, and feel great for the whole day!

Fabulous @ 50
