one step at a time...

In the past couple of years I have been diagnosed with 4 pain conditions - FMS, Allodynia, Arthralgia and Neuropathy. I have a spinal injury which occurred at age 10 (but never pinpointed till age 41) and also sustained 5 herniated discs and arthritis in my spine. It is a challenge finding the fine line between the right amount of activity and going beyond that - which often results in prolonged periods of immobility. This has impacted adversely on my ability to exercise, and my weight has crept up as a result.

I am now trying to eat more consciously and be more aware of portion control. Like many Spark Page members, I do love my food.

I love meeting new friends, so feel free to stop by and say hello.

My Goals:
Movement as often as possible.

Keep focusing on the positives.

Treat myself well, and focus on taking the small steps, one at a time.


My Program:
Being mindful of portion control.

Move my body as much as I can within limits.

Never give up.



Personal Information:
I was born and live in the lovely South Australian city of Adelaide again, after spending 8 years in Hobart and 4 in Melbourne.


Other Information:
I love animals, and lost my beloved cat Coco aged 17, in December 2009.

My interests include travel (reading, TV shows and DVDs) since I am a bit restricted in getting about; occasional bursts of creativity (writing, art); reading; photography; and I am an Anglophile who would love to visit the UK one day...

Inspirational Quote:

People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
~Tony Robbins

    Thanks so much for reading and responding to my blog.
    I have spoken to the nutritionist at the hospital and she gave me some ideas on what to eat that wouldn't upset my stomach. I did lose a lot of weight during that two weeks, but I have gained it back because I can now eat better food. My potassium levels are back up and my infection is gone. Hopefully I will be able to have chemo this Thursday. Thanks so much for your kind words and prayers. They are so appreciated.
