I still can't find Izzy Gizzah. As you know if you read yesterday's blog,, the flyers were up w/in 5 hrs, w/ addy/ phone # (cell),,,, and the shelter called, as well as police station where they keep a log also of animals they pick up.
Day 2,,,, she's STILL NOT BACK !! Did get 2 calls, to say she's up by the playground,, which is a bit aways from here,,,so chances are she simply can't find her ways back. :( TEARS UPON TEARS !!!!!!! There are now A LOT MORE Flyers up around that area. I recalled animal control to find out that they ONLY WORK PART TIME !! DISCUSTING FOr a city this large !!!! NO NEED OF THAT !!!!! So I took things into my own control and went out and rented a trap. Its been 3 hrs, so far NO animal has wandered into it to eat the kitty food. I had thought they'd be hungry and go RIGHT FOR IT, and that I/d be letting out ALL KINDS of kitties, posums etc,,,,,rabbits,,, til I FINALLY Got Izzy. I/ve rented it for a week. They told me that she'll respond to it b4 then. I DOUBT THIS !! But, at this point I am just ANGRY she's outside and NOT WITH HER MOMMA where she BELONGS !! PISSED OFF TOTALLY !!!! She's NOT an outside cat,,, why did "SHE" let her BACK OUT when she came IN???? I/ll NEVER HAVE ANSWERED ,, PURE STUPIDITY !!!
iZZAH COME HOME TO ME !!!! It was SOO HARD TO Sleep last night w/out her. I did so in tiny snatches.

Well as of today,, life totally is a bummer !! I THOUGHT when I came back from Denver,,, I had "LOST" IT ALL, except for izzy of course,,, she was ALL I HAD LEFT from my old place. HoW I ADORE aND LOVE My izzah. Now she GOT OUT THIS AM at 9:30. The room mate,,, was downstairs,,,did NOT close the door well (NEVER DOES !! GRRRR) and her cat was able to push it open,,, and Izzy RAN OUT THE DOOR !!!!!!
Now Izzy is an INDOOR CAT whom I've had out on a LEASH (She GOT OFF IT of course !! She's a SLIPPERY THING !) and I let her out with me one other time, which determined she'd be an INdOOR CAT for she just RAN That day WITHOUT Watching where she was going. Today "THAT OTHER CAT" opened the door,,, but, SHE HAD COME BACK IN,,, and the room mate,,, I say NOT TO BRIGHT cause she LET HER BACK OUT !! WHY???? I HAVE ZERO cLUE !!! Tonight she said "I feel bad she's out, I didn't anything". DUH !!!!! I DO NOT STUPID PEOPLE !!!
So Izzy is OUTSIDE !! I am HEART BROKEN OF COURSE !! TO THE MAX !!!! IZZY !!! GIZZAH !!!!!! WHERE ARE YOU????? I've looked ALL OVER The complex (it has over 100 condo's ALL THE EXAcT SAME COLOR and same type of green HIGH Wooden fences PRIVATE Fences out back that you CAN NOT get into. I HAE NO CLUE Where she IS !!!!
I called the local shelter so if she's bought in,,, I can have HER BACK !!!! She has a distinctive mark on her left foot,,,its all white, with a black heart shape mark on it,,, brown tabby/tiger type of kitty, and very small for her 2 1/2 yrs old. I HOPE SHE's OK OUT THERE !! I KNOW She's VERY SCARED !!! She'd OF COME OUT if NOT !!! I MISS YOU IZZY !!!! I always sleep with her,,,, (or the other cats I've had since I was very young) This is sooooo strange NOT HAVING YOU HONey !! COME BACK IZZY !! COME BACK !!!
The complex and other streets r now PLASTERED with pics/info of her,,, I keep goin out n' lookin for her. As does a neighbor , but that'll only SCARE HER for Izzy does NOT KNOW HER. I can't get the neighbor to Understand that she's at this point RUNNIN FROM ME so PLZ STOP !!!!!!! UGHERS !!!! She' feels "its my duty" to help. SHEESHE LOUISE !!!

I am an SPIRITED UNDAH with the 5% CHALLENGE !!! 111 There are a COUPLE of goals I WANT TO MAKE !!
FIrst to MAKE the 5% Challenge, which in case ur not a part of the private team , is to lose 5% of ur weight in 8 weeks (If you wish to join the next one, its A LOT OF FUN and WORK, but hey it's WORTH IT !!! Just ask me how, and we WILL put you on the list, this one has JUST BEGUN though, so it'll be around 3 months???? B4 the next one,,,,, I am "guessing" at that date,,,). We do our daily exercise which we can pick ourselves and the amount of time we are capable of, while being able to claim 120 mins of it, though we CAN CERTAINLY GO OVAH !! Also there are WEEKLY Challenges such as drinking water,,,which is this weeks chal,,,, and that I USED TO NOT Like (The drinking of water,, NOT the challenges,,, I LOVE the challenges). THANKS to these challenges,,, I am GROWING STRONGAH AND STRONGAH!!! Learning to do things THE SPARK WAY!!! I used to be SO "CLOSED MINDED". I would NOT TOUCH WATER b4,,and was PURELY A soda drinker,,,would NOT TOUCH a Freggie,, STILL NOT A FAV, but on Freggie week, I DO MY BEST to have 2 or 3 day,,, as I once did NOT LIKE WATER,,,and NOW DO, I am HOPING the Freggie thang WILL GROW ON ME, so I STAY with the 5% Chal,,,, for this reason,,,,so I LEARN AND GROW And IMPROVE as the HEALTHY person I CAN BE !!!! I've always been one to excerise as much as I can, though very limited physically, so for me , personally, that's not really an issue, it's the challenge part I NEED ! For others though it's the exercise that's BADLY needed,,,if this is YOU ,, PLZ JOIN US !!
So how is this PAYING OFF???? My highest weight was 278 !!! When I joined SPARKS I was STUICK at 256,,,, and NOW I am at 205.8 as of this AM !! TO THE MAX !!!!! We've JUST BEGUN the 5% and my goal is to lose just over 10 lbs,,,, my beginning weight was 206.3 ,,, so I HOPE to make it at 196 !!!
THIS WILL PUT ME INTO ONDERLAND !!!! I am HOPING To do this in around 5 weeks, which is 3 weeks SHORT of the END of the challenge !!! So by June 14th !!!! Can I DO THIS??? Well they "SAY" That "ATTITUDE Is EVERYTHING" and I TOTALLY KNOW I CAN Do THIS !!! So that ON MY PAGE it'll say:
Now to go OUT for a SHORT WALK. For that's about ALL my bod allows on walking, which is to bad for that's the BEST way for me to lose,,,if my bod DID ALLOW REAL Walking,,, I'd CLEARLY be in the 180s, but we ALL GO at OUR O WN Paces. This is SOOO IMPORTANT For Everyone who's reading this to realize,,, ur body will move at it's OWN pace.
THis is also baring anything EXTRA STRESS that is UNKNOWN To me,,,,for when I am suddenly thrown into extra stress I DO GAIN RAPIDLY ,, than it comes OFF FAST when the stress is done,,, SO HARD On a challenge. SIGH !!
GOOOO DIANESE !!!
GOOOOOOOOOO ALL 's and ALL WHO ARE READING THIS !! WHo have ALREADY HIT ONDERLAND and HOPING TO DO SOON, and WILL At SOME POINT,,,especially those who will at SOME POINT,,,,, for when I was at 278, I simply BELIEVED I COULD !! SO YOU ALSO KEEP THIS IN MIND !!! U CAN ALSO !!!

For those of you who read my blogs regularly you know I live in chronic pain. This is nothing new to you. :) However, we are starting a new challenge on the 5% Challenge, so the new Puppies are not aware of this. So just let me say, that I was hit by an 18 wheeler in 92, 3 times, than hit the guardrail 2 times HARD ! this happened in CONN, while I lived in Maine, and was headed back home, with my best friends father following us. He "presumed" we were either dead, or seriously injured from this. We though "felt" that time, we were "so fortunate" in that we hadn't broken any bones (GO SUBARU's ) !!! but !!! OVER Time, we'd go futher and further downhill, with the 2 of us, from severe muscular damage, and neurological damage (as well as some brain damage for both us, though for my friend, it's leading to the end of her life soon,,,, I of course hate this,,,, as she's slowly dying). so yeah, it's greatly affected us both. Wish we had know it at that time, but time has a way of "marching on" and showing the truth.
So today,,,, in 2012 and has been going on since the accident, my muscular and neurological system has been greatly affected. the pain is terrible, but does this mean I am going to simply stay in bed and NOT TRY? NO WAY !!! Though I Usually use a wheelchair (At the moment, I am living in a place due to another situation beyond my control, or I'd be homeless) I do have it here, and even have STAIRS to climb, which is HORRENDOUS , but YET I DO them !!! WOOHOOOO !!! I feel COURAGOUS about this !!! though of course I do my BEST to not do it often each day. HUGE SMILE !!!!!!!!!
So night before last,,,,I was laying here in bed, aftah a day of some walking, (I DETEST Walking !! HURTS HORRIBLY and takes me DAYS to feel better IF I do ! Left foot can't ever feel well,,,, NOT complaining,,, just a "Statement" for others have it WAY WORTH !!!! I am MUCH more fortunate than many others, and I am THANKFUL For this ! Hence "Diane DOES SMILES !" I am doing ALL I can to make this work, til I get my own permanent place. WOOOHOOO ato athIS DAY 11 Well this night,,, so SORE From the walking,,, I was on SPARKS doing some work for the SUD team,, and on the front page was a video and article about "Foam Rollers" so I clicked on it cos MaryAnn(gi) had also told me how well they help her. I went thru the video with MUCH interest !!! WOW !!! I also read A LOT of the comments,,, and how about almost EVERYONE was saying "This helps out with ,,,,,,,, " in re: to their own body aches. I WAS HOOKED !!!!!
Than I clicked onto the excerises. For I was NOT going to buy something I knew NOTHING about ,,,and have it sit around collectin dust. How many of us have done THIS in the past????? I KNOW I HAD !!! And LEARNED to NOT do it. :) So as I went thru the exercises, I determined that I COULD DO MANY of them !11 WOOHOOOO ! AND That THEY WOULD HELP ME !!!
So today I went to Walmart where MaryAnn had said she got hers at a Good Price. I won't say what it costed, but it was Not expensive at ALL !! It ALSO comes with exercises wrapped around it,,, and a web site for more ,,,including video's. I haven't yet been to any of those,,,,for my left hip "WAS" VERY SORE,,,,and that WAS My Intentions for today,,, to get OUCHERS OUT !! next is to work along my spine IF able. For my spine is very crooked,,,, and quite disabled,,, with scolosis. We'll see. I bought the hard one,,,, MaryAnn is saying I need the soft one, but I LOVE the hard one along my hip,,,,,,so I may just stay with this one,,, depending on how it feels along my spine.
I HIGHLY recommend this if you ALSO suffer as I do. Its MUCH CHEAPER than a chiro AND Its available ANY TIME ! Just BECAREFUL and follow what it says. IF IN DOUBT GET PERMISSION From DR FIRST !!! Mine had in the past recommended a towel so I feel Ok to do this.
