all positive news. happy for you.
Thanks, Love! And thanks for the hug, Esther. 💜
I want to see Pog!
cool that he stopped by & that you had a chance to connect.
Thanks, Love. It was so great to see him & I already love his girlfriend so much. I'm very protective of my brother & I can tell she is good for him. I'm thankful for her! Thanks for the hugs!
I've started adding some jogging while on the treadmill. Just a bit. Willl try to do more each day. Pog is still doing great. Getting into stuff & destroying toys but he makes me so happy!
I understand that all too well. I have multiple health problems that leave me fatigued and unrestful sleep. Sending hugs and love.
Stress, the uncertainty about covid and the future. Fatigue, depression and need for sleep are normal. Be understanding to yourself Manda bear. X
Thank you, Brooke & nixi. I feel better thinking of it that way. I'm not ready for winter though. Thanks for the hugs, Pandas. 💜
I like the new healthful habits you've adopted... & Pog, whom you've adopted sounds like a joy.
Sounds like the little guy likes to play... and scratch and bite.
He sure does, Love. Just had BF order a new toy for him that should help get some of that energy out. I love him sooo much though!
...accepted soon. I am so happy! 😻
Super happy for you! 😺 I love cats so much!
So happy for you Manda
very cool. happy for you and Pog, who has found a new home.
Thanks, John! I've been wanting another cat thanks to my daily dose of cats on Reddit. I can't believe BF went with it!
Thanks, Love! It's a perfect home for him. We are thankful!
Awwww a little kitten 😍 there is nothing better
I agree, Alicia! He is so sweet. We definitely got a good one! Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! 💜
...to bring him home. We dropped Daughter off for play practice & by the time we all got home & had dinner, BF says to make an appointment for him to be neutered & get his shots!! 😻
This is actually supposed to be a Big Fat 10!
Grey cat. Gorgeous. This is fantastic
Thanks, nixi! We are getting ready to go get him now! Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! 😻
Yaaaaay!!! He's a lucky kitty!
We are just as lucky, Alicia. It was meant to be. I hope we can give him a long & healthy life.
A jump rope is an inexpensive but useful addition to Mandas Home Gym. I'm bringing mine to work as temps are dropping. A light workout to keep body warm.
Manda's Home Gym. I like that!
Manda's Home Gym.. I like that too! How long would you recommend jumping rope for, Love? Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! 💜
...skipping or stopping earlier than usual, but then I just push through & meet my goal. It feels so great! Sleeping through the nights. Love it. Got Reese's pumpkins the other day & ate way too many. Grabbed 4 today, but then put back 2. So awesome!
that's so exciting! my brother has an apple watch and he loves it! :)
Great results all around, well done!
Thanks, Alicia! It's amazing to be proud of yourself. Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! 💜
Thanks, Jashlyn, too. I am sooo excited!
treadmill, wow :) Impressive, seriously.
Thanks, paul! I'm really proud of myself. Not used to that feeling.
...journal entries from Open Diary which I started in 2000. It's a subscription service so I'm moving them to Prosebox which is free. I can't believe I stayed with my ex through all the infidelity & abuse. I don't care if we never talk again.
movin' on- figuratively & literally.
Thanks, Pandas! 💜
Yeah, screw abusers!
Hell yeah, Alicia!
Keep going. Instead of watching a TV show, watch a film, see how long you can do!
Oohhh! Good idea, John! I already feel like I can go for longer than 30 minutes. Just figured it was a good amount.
that's a good thing!! Way to go
After several minutes of cardio the body mass produces endorphins. Enjoy the natural buzz!
it's good stuff. lots of benefits- physical & cognitive- from just walking.
Thanks, Love. I'll work my up to running. Right now it seems scary to not hang on. I can't imagine full out running. Looking forward to getting to that point though! Thanks for the hugs, Pandas. 💜
I'm proud of you too! :) A friend got in very good shape by just walking on his treadmill, no more than 30 minutes a day (he worked up to it). And eating better.
It takes some getting used to, but you will.not be holding on in no time
Thank you so much, Pandas! 💜 I'm glad to have you guys in my corner.
Therapist said (not for the first time) that she could talk to me forever. Made me happy!
Aww that's lovely!
...for Bipolar Disorder. I've been up since 7AM. It's 10:46AM now. Struggling so hard to not go back to bed. Going to dust, get on the treadmill, and take a shower before therapy.
A shower always helps me feel a bit better! Hope your therapy session goes well...
Thanks, Dee! I ended up procrastinating & haven't been on the treadmill or showered yet. Will do it after dinner. I did get the whole downstairs dusted so I'm happy about that. Therapy went well.
yum. love Indian food.
BF still feeling bad about that whole mess with a parent. Said he was up till 3AM. I feel bad for him. Our moms & myself think it's ridiculous.
His remorse may just show he cares. Guessing he probably was frustrated and wanted the student to try harder.
Good luck with the exercise program. There are so many ways to move the body. Going you find the ones that work for you and motivate you.
Thanks, Love. That's exactly how he's been feeling. Got a jump rope on the way. Might as well have fun while I move! Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! 💜
