New Knees New Lifestyle

I am 54 years old and have had total two knee replacements in the last 6 months. I had debilitating arthritis in both knees for years. After the knee replacements I can walk again, and I plan to. I didn't go through those major surgeries to go back to spending my life on a couch. Sorry judge Judy, I won't be able to watch your show every day anymore.

Having been inactive for so long, I let myself get pretty overweight.

Having been inactive for so long, I let myself get pretty overweight.
I want to lose weight to make it easier on my new knees and to just be healthier. I want to live life stronger. I know I need to take it slow with the knees right now (still some post operative swelling). I can start eating right and working on building up my stamina. I can't even describe how good it feels to be outside walking, after years of not even wanting to go to the supermarket because they don't have benches in supermarkets. Walking down the aisles was a chore.

I've tried to lose weight before, and we'll, did not succeed. This time I'm bringing new knees to the party!

I'm going to take it day by day. A bad day or even a bad week will not stop me. I've wasted too many years on the couch already.

Today you have the choice to be amazing. Today you can do more than just try. You can succeed. You can be victorious. Today, you can rock your world. You can look yourself in the eye and smile... because you know that you are fighting for an amazing cause: YOU. And YOU are absolutely worth fighting for.

You can also do the same thing tomorrow.

"It's not whether you get knocked down; it's whether you get up." - Vince Lombardi

In honour of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games this Saturday in London, I give to you the Olympic Creed which is as true for the games as it is for achieving our own goals and dreams each and every day:

"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."

Today, you are a superhero, a survivor, a warrior, and a beacon to others for honouring yourself, your mind and your body; for making the choices that will make you an even better person tomorrow.

Today you are one step closer, because you decided to be. Fight strong, fight well, fight fair.

"Never, never, never, never give up." - Winston Churchill

Thanks for cheering on my garden in my latest blog! I only wish I could share all the produce with you... I mean, who in their right mind plants 24 heritage tomato plants and 32 hot pepper plants?? It looks like we'll be booking "Salsa-Fest" for this fall. I see a lot of canning in our future...

Today is the unofficial "take happiness into your own hands" day. It's unofficial because I just made it up! (*grin*) But it seems like a great idea, right? Today, try not to be controlled by others... decide to be happy, decide to be great. Move forward as if all your dreams could come true today with no barriers standing in your way. Smile, laugh, and be amazing...

emoticon emoticon Because you ARE. emoticon emoticon

I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it. - Groucho Marx
