Staying positive

Well, Poppa Jim is safely back in his hometown hospital... he was lethargic today and refused to eat (for the RN's and for my aunt) and appeared annoyed... I can't blame him. He didn't get back to his home hospital until the wee hours of the morning... He is tired and cranky. He must be feeling bummed out by now and frustrated that when he tries to speak... the words can't come out. I feel bad for him. He is a fighter though, I have hopes for him! Can you tell how much I love my Poppa??? He is such a wonderful and kind person!!

So, I got myself on the treadmill today... yay. I did intervals and at one point felt like my legs may fell off, but I think that's what I needed.

Here's what I ate:
Breakfast - fruit salad (1), 1/2c all bran (1), yogurt (1)
Lunch - smart ones ravioli (5), yogurt (1)
snack - popcorn (3)
dinner - 0pt soup (0), chicken breast (3), spaghetti squash (1), tomatoes (0), yogurt (1)
Snack at home - sugar cookie pieces (?3)
Total: 20
Water: 5L

I have already made my lunch for tomorrow and planned what I will wear... I will now retire for the night and hopefully get on the treadmill in the morning... tuesdays are hard!

Tara: Kristen has a gazelle!! I think when I've used it long enough I do feel it in my butt the next day!

Happy Tuesday... I am off on Friday, but have a very busy week up until then... so I just have to get through the next 3 days!! At least it's a LONG weekend and I am NOT working (I took Valentine's weekend off!).

Hey Jen!
I peeked in at your Poppa Jim today (hope that is OK!) and he looks good. I didn't introduce myself or anything as he was resting. Let me know how he's doing and at some point I will pop in and give him a message for you!!
Your food today looks good. It's making me feel like sugar cookies though! And very good job on the treadmill. As much as the feeling of your legs falling off sucks, it is good for you!! (providing they don't ACTUALLY fall off!!!)
