Resting comfortably

Friday, May 29, 2009

Today I had another series of 6 shots in my spine. I'm very sore but the doctor said that I did great and that the inflammation was down a lot! Yea! I'm supposed to take it easy - no exercise except slow walking- and starting next week around June 8th, I can begin some slow water walking. After that I am allowed to add one additional exercise (in the water) per week until I've seen the doctor again. I'm not allowed to lift, bend, twist, stand or do any repetitive motion for at least 7-10 days. (What a shame, I'll have to give up housework. It's breaking my heart!) emoticon I did myself a big favor this past week and vacuumed, cleaned bathrooms, did laundry, went grocery shopping and cooked several meals in advance so I wouldn't be temped to do any of that and hurt myself. Well, I'm off to get my ice pack and pain medication and then lie down on my wonderful new bed!

Have a great weekend everyone! emoticon

    Cyndi the good news is you can do it all when you recover it will be happy to stick around and wait for you. That is the good thing about housework.
I am sorry to hear you are laid up but if it is going to help you in the long run it is worth it. You have a great attitude though getting everything done because that is what happens with people. They see something that needs done and thinks Ok I can do that and the next thing you know you have either set yourself back or hurt something different. You take care of yourself and get plenty of rest and before you know it you will be able to do everything plus more.
My thoughts will be with you for a fast recovery time. Teri emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Polk County Group Spread The Spark Summer Challenge Walk/Rally on June 27

Thursday, May 28, 2009

I'm hoping that our Polk County Group and get together enough people for the June 27 walk, to form a rally. I don't know the first thing about forming a rally, but I suspect that I'm about to have a quick lesson. If anyone reading this has any tips or suggestions, I'm open to just about anything at this point. I do know that the walk/rally will be held in Lakeland. When our team meets on June 3rd, I'm hoping we can choose the park and the time. I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to also have some local gyms come and lead us in some exercises. It would be great advertising for them and a good workout for us! I'm starting to get a little excited about it. I believe that we're supposed to wear Spark People gear to the walk/rally. I do have a Spark shirt and water bottle so I feel like in that sense I'm ready. I hope that our Polk County Group will all share in the planning so we can have a nice, worthwhile event! Well here goes....... Wish us luck! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Just For Today

Monday, May 25, 2009

Just for today I will be satisfied with my life the way it is,
Just for today I will love myself as I am,
Just for today I will reach out to others in need,
Just for today I will nurture myself and then others,
Just for today I will nourish my body and soul,
Just for today I will take the time to notice all the gifts that God has
given us for they are all around us,
Just for today I will give away my love to others,
Just for today I will be kind to myself and others,
Just for today I will give thanks for all that I have,
Just for today I will acknowledge the good works of my fellow man,
Just for today I will put aside my pettiness and focus on important issues,
Just for today I will open myself to feeling others' love and tenderness
even though I am afraid,
Just for today I will accept God's love and feel peace.

Memorial Day Weekend

Saturday, May 23, 2009

Memorial Day weekend is like the start of summer for me. But before I dive into those salads, barbecued chicken or fruit/veggie platters, it's important to remember what Memorial Day is all about. Webster defines Memorial Day ....
Memorial Day a legal holiday in the U.S. (the last Monday in May in most states) in memory of members of the armed forces killed in war.

Let's all take a moment to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can enjoy our freedom. Thank you to all who have served our country; both past and present. God Bless the U.S.A.! emoticon emoticon emoticon
