I hate that it has gotten so dangerous for kids and pets. I always buy some candy to give to the trick-or-treaters that do get to come out in their costumes. although, I have noticed that I seem to get more teenagers trick-or-treating than the little tykes. That really makes me sad. I know many places have Halloween events for kids to be safe at but I miss their excitement at going to a house and screaming "Trick-or-Treat!" Oh well, the whole world seems very different from when I was a munchkin. I figure, if they're in costume, they get a treat. There you have it.
My problem has always been eating the leftover candy but I heard of a program that collects the leftover candy and sends it overseas to our troops. So thats what I'm going to do. Here in Tucson the drop-off place is Kool Dentistry. A very cool way to send love to our men & women away from home. I didn't even eat 1 piece! Proud of myself about that.
My foot is still hurting and I've been trying to take some ibuprofen to ease the swelling. So, let me tell you the fun I had beginning to do a barre workout. Eeeeeeeeeeeeoooooouuuuuch! I did about 15 min. before I decided to give it a rest. Both feet felt the strain but only the L foot felt the pain. Not fun at all, but I did break a sweat. I'll need to ease into it but do it I shall. I did finish the 2nd 1/2 which was easy for me. I think I'll try 1 of the 10 min. workouts today give to give myself a pic-me-up since I'm home and cleaning the house etc. Who knows, maybe I'll do 2 or 3 of them! See how my foot feels. Upper body is easy, it's the lower body work on my feet that kills. Lunges for days.
I've had such a tough time finding dance classes to take and maybe it's a good thing I haven't been able to. So now I can strengthen my feet, ankles, calves as well as the rest of my body. My strength, balance, fluidity, etc.
I'm on week 2 of Nutrisystem and able to eat some, and I mean some, real food, as well as the pre-packaged foods delivered by them. I must say that some of the food is bland but on the "pizza" I had last night, I threw on some fresh salsa and red pepper flakes and it helped a great deal. Without even adding unwanted juju's!
Tomorrow, I can weigh myself again for the 1st time in 1.5 weeks. Keep your fingers crossed. It does feel as though some things have changed. Hopefully, it's not just in my mind.
Oh dear God! The cat just caught another pack rat! He tried to bring it in the house again, but I've got the doors closed off. I think he gets them from the neighbors yard. Theres a lot of "stuff" over there. Oh well, at least he's a good mouser. I wish he didn't feel the need to present them in the house. Earlier last week, I came home to bird feathers in both my living room and office. Yuck. He is quite the hunter.
Peace out folks, and keep dancing
