Just a quick note to say I was really sore last night and a couple of Advil then back to bed and this morning feel right as rain. I was sore yesterday when I got home but I was sore before I left the place. It was a long line and walking on concrete which my hip and knees cannot handle. Once in bed and asleep for a few hours I woke up and was very sore. Actually, both of my shoulders were sore BUT that could also be from doing an upper body workout on Tuesday too and the shot just made it a bit worse. My knees and hip screamed too but once I took the Advil and hit the pillow again, well, this morning I'm all better. So we will see what the next few days hold but I suspect nothing but good stuff.
Don't be afraid my friends. We have vaccinations for good reason. I've been through chicken pox (have the scars to prove it), measles, hard measles, German measles, mumps, there is not one childhood ailment I haven't had, except polio. I remember the sugar cube and the terror of polio. Don't be afraid.

All I can say this morning is I am mortally embarrassed and saddened by our country right now. The spectacle I saw on the television yesterday made my blood boil then turned to absolute embarrassment. I had Snicklefritz all day yesterday and never turned the TV on, nor did I check my social media, at all. Imagine my surprise, or should I say my "shock and awe" by what I was witnessing on my television screen. And yet our top dog basically did nothing to stop the mayhem. I will admit here that I am a Republican but I am ashamed by my party right now, to support this man and to allow him to continue to insight this kind of violence while he smugly sits in the Oval Office egging it on. Come on, man we have a new president and I will support the new president no matter what party I am. I cannot condone the crap our current leader is doing. While I will still be a Republican as far as political leanings I will not support this kind of crap and I haven't for a long time. It's tempting to jump parties but I'm not going to fall into that line. We voted, fair and square and we have a new leader, lets support him to do what is right and I know he will. Joe Biden is a kind man and will do well. Let's calm down because there is already enough crap going on in our world, we don't need this. Be kind to your fellow man, try to stay in your own lane and let us get through this pandemic thing before you tear the country apart, piece by piece.

No pictures today but doing a quick post driven by my trainer to think about. She asked for us to come up with one or more things we could see ourselves doing again, ONCE we start losing weight and getting back in shape.
Hmmm, the first thing is NOT TO HURT! I know my joints are full of arthritis and are breaking down but that is mainly because of the weight that I've allowed to accumulate onto my short 5'3" body. The joints are just over it and rebelling. I want to not be in pain with every single step I take. I know losing the weight will make a huge impact on that.
Second, is I want the ability to get up and down off the floor with little Min, play with my granddaughters, not use them as go-fers for me. Again, this goes back to loss of weight will make it easier for me to move.
I can't really think of anything else except to be able to move better. It's funny that 2 years ago I was in such good shape but ever since the hysterectomy and the knee procedure the weight has just accumulated by leaps and bounds. I'm pretty sure part of my issue is hormones or lack there of because of the hysterectomy (hair loss too and dry skin) but I am NOT going on hormones, not ever. Just going to eat better and that is what I am trying to do.
Guess this is a weight loss rant and sob story.
