Shadow

Friday, June 24th, 2005

Shadow is sick, and I’m worried about her. I gave her and Oreo flea and tick medication on Tuesday. Both cats were pretty wiped out that day, which is what normally happens. Wednesday, Shadow was still a little slow, but nothing really out of the ordinary. Although someone vomited in the bed. That night, she was sick twice, and was very cuddly in bed (which is out of character for her). Yesterday she slept all day, and I don’t think she moved at all. She’s still like that today, so I’m gonna take her to the vet. I think that sometime on Tuesday or Wednesday she gave Oreo a bath and licked off all the medication. I hope she’ll be OK.

Exercise

Thursday, June 9th, 2005

In April I hit rock bottom. We were down in Atlanta, and we climbed Mt. Kennesaw with some friends. It was not a tough walk…a mile or so up a not really steep path. I could barely do it. I felt miserable. When we go to the top, I told Chris we were going to start going to the gym when we got home. So Chris and I have been going to the gym about 3 times a week since mid-April. Have I seen a difference? Some I guess. The cardiovascular stuff has improved a lot. I no longer feel like I’m gonna die after using the elliptical for 30 minutes. And my heart rate comes down to an acceptable level when I do my cool down. On the weight lifting/toning side, things aren’t so good. I seem to have hit a plateau that I can’t get out of. My legs are doing ok, but I still have absolutely no strength in my upper body. I kinda feel like there’s no point.

But I guess the overall fitness program must be working. The size 4 shorts I bought last summer are all to big now. Guess I’ll just have to go shopping again…

Party!

Schierer Blogging

hmmm…blogging. An interesting concept. Wouldn’t have thought that we’d do it, but here it is. We were discussing it in the car last weekend, and I decided to set one up this morning. We’ll see how it goes…
