No ill effects from gardening... so far! LOL! Tuesday was GOOD!

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

A bit of soreness here, and catch there... nothing to complain about!
I had my meals already planned, so it all went off without at hitch.
Now I am ready to call it a day and go to bed. Everything is staged for in the morning. I am prepared and looking forward to a new day!

Will pay for the gardening later...

Monday, March 12, 2012

I am not a fan of DST... my body goes more by sun-time than "government trying to confuse us" time.
Thus, I did not sleep well. DH took up the slack and wrangled and rotated Corgis this morning so I could sleep later. Sweet man!
We finally got to running errands about noon. After we did that, I came home and put on my gardening clothes, and hit the natural area to de-weed and pull ivy. An hour later, I had it looking pretty good, and ready for pine needles on Saturday. I also used muscles I haven't used in awhile... OUCH!
I overdid it on the treadmill yesterday(and the Wii), so I was slow this morning anyway from that. But I used the Wii for 15 minutes this morning, once I got moving. I figured the gardening was enough for the day's exercise. I took a shower and decided to chill. The longer I sat, the stiffer I got. In my brilliance, I thought if I walked on the treadmill it would limber me up again. It DID get my blood warmed, but now I feel as if I have been hit by a truck! I took my evening meds. The pain pill should kick in about 10 minutes from now. In order to sleep better, I believe I will do a few stretches before I actually get into the bed.
It is going to be an interesting morning ahead... There isn't a muscle I have not moved today.
I ate well today. I accomplished a lot around the house, and my natural area is lovely and clean looking. I drank more than my usual water for the day. All is prepped and ready for my leaving for work. Lunch is packed.
Here's hoping I can move in the AM!

    Wow, you really did a lot of work around there and that makes us feel so good too! And now yes, you have to pay for it. All of us with RA know what's coming, don't we and then we're so thankful we know how to take care of ourselves. Have a good day at work and hopefully you'll be all better when you get back home! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like a very productive day! You needed to read the Spark article in getting ready for gardening exercises. Its tough to jump right into something when you are not used to it that is for sure. I hope you are not too sore and that your meds are enough to help!
Would love to see a photo of this natural area, sounds wonderful!

    You'll be able to move, but the muscles might just be barking louder than usual. Nice work getting an early start that you can look at and enjoy to further motivate you too.

An uneventful weekend. TYG!

Sunday, March 11, 2012

Thanks be to God! This was a nice weekend.
My BFF brought me a treadmill, and I have enjoyed using it! I used my Wii each day. My weight is a solid 196.0. I have eaten well, even with eating out at Fatz Cafe! Portions and drinking water make a huge difference.
Changing the clocks yesterday afternoon made a difference, too. I was up to go to 8 am Mass without feeling tired, or missing the hour we lost.
I spent today chilling... read some, ate when I was hungry, and exercised. I did not need a nap.
My body hurts from the fibro, and the weather change has my joints "out of sorts". Circumstances that can be dealt with. Overall, good.
I had my solitary trip to Wally World after Mass. Very nice. Relaxing. Definitely adding this to my list of things to continue after Lent.
The week ahead looks to be busy, but well planned at this point.
I am ready to face whatever comes, and be thankful. The is no situation that I cannot handle if I will turn to God first.
This IS going to be a SPARKling week!

    A good day except for the aches -rapid weather changes always get me too -but I do feel better the warmer it gets..
That is awesome your BBF bought you a treadmill! What a special person!
I hope your busy week isn't too much for you and that you can find some rest and relaxiing time in it too.

What a difference a day makes!

Thursday, March 08, 2012

Today was a good day... I tracked my food. I drank my water. I woke up in a good mood. I had a really nice day at work. I do not have a lot of pain.
Thank you, God! Thanks to my Spark Friends for your encouragement and prayers!
You can face any kind of day when you know you are loved!
I feel SO loved!

Decided to be on track today.

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

I woke up hurting. Mentally and physically. I had not eaten as well as I could the past two days, I did not drink as much water as I usually do(at least 9 glasses a day), and I was too tired. Did not exercise as usual. Didn't sleep well.
I felt ugly and had a disposition to match.
I knew today was going to be a long, tiring day. It was.
But I knew I could not keep sportin' the 'tude I had.
I chose to look beyond my "feelings" to what the truth actually was. I was tired. I was concerned for Aunt Margaret. I ate some foods that are not good for my inflammation. I could not change what was yesterday, but I could start anew this morning. I ate well. I drank my water. I smiled no matter what. I expected the best of myself in my work, and did my best work.
So, here I am at 9:15pm. I am tired. But I WON the race today! I finished proud of ME!
I overcame my bad mood, and I learned(again!) that I always have a choice as to how I react to the start of the day.
I partly owe my new wisdom to SP. God has used it to alter my attitude towards life when it sucks.
I am very grateful!
