Report From Ladder Company 40 Day 91

Hi Team!

First, thank you to 911R and to my friend Kenya (who doesn't follow my blog, at least if she does I don't know about it). Both of you have given me the lift I needed to get out of my recent slump. And 911R I'll lay off the cherry pepsi. I knew I shouldn't have the one I had a while back. It made me want it again! Thanks for the encouragement.

Firelady, I am jealous of the warm weather you have been enjoying while on vacation. It was bitterly cold here for a while. It is warmer now. Sad when 34 feels balmy! I hope you enjoyed every minute of it.

Today was a good day. I got a lot done at work and I drank all the fluids I needed, about 2 1/2 quarts. I didn't get great amounts of sleep last night, but I tried, I even tried the mp3 last night, but it didn't work. I did get a nap today though. I walked about 5,108 steps, that Pete logged on top of who knows how many that he didn't. I think that qualifies as three for three.

I have not done stairs in quite a while because the ones I used for my work out are outside and it has either been bitterly cold or quiet wet on the days I have been out. Tomorrow I think I will take the time to do some stairs in the school where I run my child care program. I can tell in my knees that I need to keep doing them. I cannot afford to have weak knees!

I need to start working on the upper body strength. If anyone has any good ideas of things I can do around home, without equipment or with stuff around the house, I would greatly appreciate the suggestions. \

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you all, I got new toys day before yesterday!
Cookie Cutter

Cookie cutters

I can't wait to use them. When and if I find the time to do so I am going to mix them in with Christmas cutters and make some cookies for my local firemen!

It is early and I am hoping to get to bed early tonight so I am going to wrap this up and finish up my lesson plans for January, which are due tomorrow. Then I hope to get some SLEEP!

Thanks for all the kind words of encouragement. My team rocks!!

Stay safe
