Trying to find a little humor in my recent hospital stay, not sure if you know much about Stan and Ollie. Ollie was in the hospital with a broken leg and Stan came to visit him. He brought him hard boiled eggs and nuts. Well, wonder why he didn't bring candy to Ollie? Because Ollie didn't pay him for the last box he brought. Hehe!
Sticking to that, and given the fact I can't eat eggs, my darling DH, after going home for a little rest the first night I was in the hospital, came back with a bag, had some nuts in it and some ceramic Easter eggs. Oh what a giggle I got out of that one no matter how bad I felt. LOL! He was one awesome bunny the entire time I was in and still is. :)
Of course my recovery will be slow and I'm taking very small deliberate strides working my way back. I feel pretty useless right now, messed up my perfect attendance here and most of my wonderful streaks got smeared, but I guess that's okay, starting over is a great place to start.
Gentle walking through the house is mostly what I do right now, one step at a time one day at a time. Oh, of course I think I should be able to count jumping through hoops with the insurance company as very high impact cardio! They sure have my heart pumpin' at times, and not exactly in a happy way. There was only one mess with them and that was a doozy, but it all started at the hospital where they were the ones who messed it up. Hmm? I just wonder what they'd say if I would send them the bill for the out of pocket expense we'll have had to deal with for 5 days? ROFLMBO!! Yea, they'd get right on that one..uhuh.. Anyway, the problem is now resolved and I'll be happier tomorrow, back to gentle walking and hopefully no more hoops to deal with.
Now, the other problem..FOOD! I know what I need, I know what I shouldn't have and what I shouldn't have is all I seem to want right now. Oh, I've only messed up with one Big Mack and Fries so far, and I'm doing the best I can to be so very good. But that's not taking the WANT away. Lots of water and ice chips are helping, carrot sticks and yogurt and oh those yummy honey nut cherios :)
I'm hanging in there! Tying that knot at the end of the rope and refusing to slip off in to the black hole!

My first blog of the new year and I couldn't think of anything but my goals.
1. Get more sleep. I have a lot of trouble with that. It's not so much me, it's my body and mind saying I've had enough after about 5 hours and I just wake up and can't get back to sleep. So from now on I'll lay there and try harder to get back to sleep.
2. Eat more fresh fruits and veggies and less canned ones. They are too convenient when I'm in a hurry to get dinner. If I take my time and work a little harder cutting the fresh ones up, I will appreciate them more.
3. Shake up my exercise routine more often. Mostly I change it only once a month but I will be doing it twice a month now.
4. I will fold the clothes and put them away after I laundry them!
5. I will be more patient and I will take things less personal.
I think those are good starts for me for the new year. I put them out there so you all could help me be accountable! HUGS!

I woke up this morning feeling like an old lady. My ear was stopped up from sinus, the inside of my left elbow was hurting, my right knee was aching, my last two fingers on my right hand feel like they're asleep and I had the headache. Yep, I'm having a poor me day. *sigh*
I feel like I'm falling apart at the seams. Gosh I don't think anyone else in this universe feels like that ever. Uhuh! I know there are so very many people everywhere that are much worse off than me, but this "oldness" is new to me and I certainly don't like it. The sluggishness, the arthritis, the "whatever" attitude.
Oh I muddle through my days and do what needs to be done, I get my exercises in, my errands run, take care of my dad's needs, be here for my husband with dinner ready when he gets home, but in between all that, I've lost me.
I know I will find me again I just need to keep looking. I've gained and lost the same 5 pounds for the past 6 months. I've changed my routine to get off that plateau but I'm still doing my balancing act on the edge of the cliff.
There are times I want to resign from the human race and come back as a cute little puppy that is cared for and loved as much as I loved my sweet Benny. Yes, I know that isn't going to happen, but it's nice for dreaming.
Okay, my poor me time is over. Thanks for stopping by! HUGS!

That I feel unappreciated, left out, made look stupid and unimportant. I hate days like that. And no, I'm not talking about my hubby. He's about the only one who isn't like that anymore.
All the things I do, and some of the things I say go completely unnoticed by many people and it hurts more than I ever let on.
Sorry, just needed to vent and get that out. Hugs!
