The big day!

Monday, June 07, 2010

Tomarrow is the big day. I am having surgery on my shoulder. After having all forms of exercise taken away from me (except walking - and I hate walking), I will be ready to get back to normal! Of course normal won't really be here until November. I will be able to do more than walk after July 20th. Then I have to refrain from lifting weights untill the end of November. I just need some motivation to walk as it is the only thing I can do now! Anybody got some out there to throw my way? But, I did get a cute haircut out of this! I'll put a picture on later when I don't look like I was dragged through a haystack.

    You will recover faster from surgery if you keep your body in good shape by exercising and if all you can do is walk, then that's what you should do. Get you a good playlist on the ole ipod and JUST DO IT. I walk everyday (ususally), fresh air and a brisk walk does wonders. It gets those good endorphins flowing that leads to a general overall well being (both mind and body). Good luck with your surgery.

The next step in the shoulder journey!

Thursday, May 20, 2010

Well, I met with the orthopedists yesterday. My shoulder still isn't better. So, now I will have to do the surgery. I have it scheduled for June 8th. I told my husband that I needed him home that week. Minimally I need him home that day since I need someone to drive me to and from the surgery. He wasn't very supportive. He told me that he didn't know what his schedule was and he might not be able to help me. I was so ANGRY! I sacrifice daily for 15 years to make life smooth for him and the kids. I am an educated woman, I gave up work to stay at home with my kids, I don't take care of myself because I am too busy taking care of him and the kids. I am just now trying to take care of me with diet and excercise and get my shoulder fixed and he decides to walk out on what I perceive to be his responsibility. I would love nothing more that to just tell him to take a hike, I can do this without him! He doesn't spend time with me or with the family when he is home. It will all catch up with him one day!

  


I can't waite

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

It seems like the school year just got longer! I need the down time of summer to get back on track. I do so much volunteering that I have taken less time for what I need to do to get back in shape. I haven't even done my shoulder therapy at home like I should. I tend to do nothing, when I have the chance, as my schedule gets busy. I gained back 4 pounds and I am struggling to keep it there. I want to lose the fat. When does life cooperate? I don't think it ever will. I need to figure out how to do this, despite how much I have to do on a daily basis.

  


The Hidden Me!

Saturday, May 08, 2010

I have been stressed out, too much time, not enough discipline! I just found out that I am an emotional eater and I don't have time to do something about it. Not really, I can do something about it if it is important enough to me. I am not very good at keeping a journal. My intentions are good, I just dont' follow through. Any ideas on how I can find out my triggers? That will be the first step. I really want to stick to the plan and get to a healthy weight.

    I know time is hard to come by for many people, but when health is concerned (physical, emotional etc) there is always five minutes here and there. Journaling can be quick...a small notebook in the hand bag and a few words jotted here and there in the moment. I'm not a journal writer regularly. For me, I use visual motivations to keep me fighting for physical and emotional well being. I use pictures of those who want me at my best and the things I hope to do! Just a couple of thoughts! Take good care~...motivation is so hard sometimes, but we can do it!!
