For The First Time Since 1993....

Friday, March 30, 2012

Today, for the first time since 1993, I was able to swim a couple of lengths in the pool. I never dreamed that I would have the range of motion with my neck to be able to do this again. I know that I must be very careful when putting my face into the water and turning it sideways to breathe but that I was able to do it at all is a miracle. The reason I tried swimming today is that I have to swim two lengths of the pool in order to become a water aerobics sub (after I take the classroom training). I was assured that I can do any swimming stroke that I choose. I also did some floating/paddling on my back which was very relaxing. I did find that I got winded quickly when I put my face in the water so I will have to build up some stamina with that type of swimming. I swam for about 30 minutes and I have to say that I was thrilled to be able to do it!

Invitation To Be A Water Aerobics Sub

Thursday, March 29, 2012

At the end of our deep water class, the instructor came up to me and asked me if I would be interested in becoming a water aerobics sub. (I've already taught the class 3 times when she had to be out) It involves some training and a fee of $75 for the training but it sounds like fun. The training class will begin sometime in May. As long as it isn't at the end of the month, I'll be okay (taking FIL's ashes to New York for burial in late May). I got a little more information about what is going to be involved and now I'm looking forward to the challenge. Hubby even agrees that it might be good for me!

Fun At The Craft Fair

Saturday, March 24, 2012

My sister and I journeyed out this morning to a local craft fair. We bought a few small, fun items and then headed to the mall. We met my hubby at the mall for lunch. Hubby and I split some Chinese chicken and veggies (and some rice). We both drank big 17 ounce glasses of water with it. Hubby was a champ and shopped with us because this was my sister's first outing without the wheel chair. We were afraid that she might not be too steady on her feet. She was funny to watch after being cooped up for 6 weeks. She reminded me of a little kid in a candy store. After about 3 stores, she was limping badly so we called it a day and came home. We had a great time and walked for about 3 hours. I'm pooped!

No Appetite Today

Friday, March 23, 2012

Well, this hasn't happened in quite some time! I just wasn't at all hungry today. No matter what the reason, I'll take it. LOL I ate at regular intervals any way just because I worked out and was very active. I know I needed the fuel.

    Glad to hear you are smart enough to eat anyway, since your body does need the fuel for a workout. Don't want your body to go into starvation mode & hold on to the weight you are trying to lose. Have a good day & a better tomorrow. emoticon

Fighting Thyroid Fatigue

Thursday, March 22, 2012

For the last week or so, I've been fighting major fatigue. Monday, I had some blood work done to see if there was a thyroid issue again. I'm so tired that I could lay down on the sidewalk and not move but I wouldn't be able to go to sleep. My arms and legs feel like lead weights and my eyes burn. Allergy may also be affecting me with fatigue so I've been treating myself (per doctor's orders) for my allergies. The allergy medication doesn't make me sleepy. I'm thinking that I'm either fighting getting sick or my thyroid medication needs to be adjusted. I've still pushed myself to work out some every day even though I feel exhausted, however when I come home, instead of hitting the computer, I throw together something for dinner and then lay down. I hope my doctor calls me today to let me know what all the blood tests say. (They took 5-6 vials of blood!)
