Just another day in my life :)

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

I was sitting here this morning at 330 am... andwas realizing as I facebooked thru my friends lives and other people i know but cant call friends.. that most people blog about negative things...then it occurred to me why my friends from my zumba class made this comment when I was up there recently visiting Lirio says in front a few women... could you please keep putting up positive messages every morning .. I read your comments everyday and you always make me smile.. I looked at her with a weird look ( i know she said) No really.. you inspire me.. you make my day more positive.. yiu make me smile or laugh.. you really make me look forward to my day.. and i remember all day what you say so when i am having a bad moment I think Adewyn said LOL

Now i understand what she meant lol...(Duh) I rad thru people comments and I always put a positive spin on there day to take the negitive and add a positive.. itsnt that what we are suppse to do?
I mean I could pos daily how much pain I am in every da from my fibromyalgia or how I cant feel my fet some days when i walk or how i burn my left arm at work because i couldnt feel the 200 degree steam searing my arm... But where would that get me?I live in pain daily.. minute by minute... I take my meds I get up I eat breakfast and I make a choice everyday!!! Everyday! Yes.. I choose to join the world... and make people happy! and show them we can live in pain and be happy I can live in pain and workout and achieve goals.. Does it take me longer to achieve them YES! Do I get frustrated Hell Yes! ut I get every morning anyways and choose to walk (which i couldnt as of 3 and 1/2 years ago today) Do I ever want to be like that again NO! Why Because I have come to far to end up back in bed again for months and not being able to move and then pushing myself to learn how to walk correctly again... I still cant walk up and down stairs correctly but who cares I can walk.... I have days I am stiff and in alot of pain I dont care I have work to do and classes to take THEN i can rest... I have weight to lose I have routines to learn so I can eventually teach Zumba now that I am certified... Yes this takes all my energy but I am worth it! I sit here in pain this morning from my last 3 days of working out and going to work... oh well.. i am gonna hurt anyways I might as hurt from exercise and look good in the process....
I have to remember the little things I accomplish every day... Everyday I am thankful for putting my feet on the ground ad standing upright every day I am glad I can put one foot in front of the other.. everyday I am thankful I can do my house chores again (as much as i hate them) I have days I have to stop.. I dont have a choice... there are days it rains or snows or the weather is changing again or i have done to much and my body says ENOUGH! So i crawl on my bed with the computer and relax with my heat pad and my flexril and calll it a day... and do light house chores or only get the things that absolutely need to be done and if nothing needs to be done I just rest... I stress my husband out I am sure.. he worries enough for the both of us... He has seen the Adewyn that couldnt move the Adewyn that wasnt the person he married the lively energitic person I was.. nw he sees it again and he fears I will be knocked down by whatever diease name they want to put on me... and though I cant say I will never be knocked down again with something medical (becuase I always do at some point) I know that I CAN and I will bounce back .. and I willl get up so I can inspire that one person that thought they couldnt to help another realize they can.. and to tell those doctors to shove it where the sun dont shine...Why Because I can! And that my friends is another day in my life and i am glad to have you all by my side!

    We might as well try our best to be the most positive we can be and like you say, put a positive spin on even the most negative events or happenings. I try to do this too, we might as well smile? hehe...

You are very right though... it always seems easier to blog about negative things - but also i think typing it out helps to rid one's self of the negativity! :) x

    Yeah. I find sometimes I am sliding to the negative, and have to stop myself and realize. I feel pretty darn good for a heart patient, and the bother of everyday life is 5% of the day. The other 95% is a blessing. I enjoy every day, but we post about our troubles, probably looking for support, or commiseration. Then you look back, and go .. Man I am depresssing! lol

I sometimes worry that pushing myself is gonna hurt me, but if you don't go LIVE life, and enjoy it to the utmost, what use is squeezing a few extra years out anyways. Plus, I think it is actually adding years. Tell your husband not to stress. Pushing the limits has more benefits than danger, and makes life more enjoyable. Then we can make positive posts, and share with others what a great thing it is to just wake up in the morning, and be alive, and even better healthy. Healthy people take this for granted, and all of us sometimes lose focus on the good things. The bad things seem so much BIGGER! lol

Wednesday, November 02, 2011

i all
Just an update.... I went to visit my father over the weekend in Tampa fl... As we all know he is not well...he is like 105 pounds and looks like a skeleton... he is on all sorts of breathing treatments.... trys to do things.. but really cant.. taking a shower wipes him out...but he sat around and was thrilled to introduce me to his neighbors and his best friend Dea ... she looks in on him and takes him kace and cleans his house up when she has time... very nic lady we hit it off real well...But I have to say I am happy I went down... he did have alot to say and he can go in peace now....he will be lucky to make it through the holidays this year... no fun...

And if you dont hear from me in the next 2 weeks do not be alarmed i do not know how much internet access i will have to track foods or say hi!!!
Love you guys!!!

Hugs and love
