Less pain!

Thursday, May 03, 2012

Not sure what I did different last night, but I had a minimal pain night! I actually overslept a little because I was so comfortable.

I have decided I am going to race this year. I found a tri south of here. Its a little longer than what I wanted to start with, but I think I can do it. I've got my training plan together. Now, EXECUTE! :) (as long as I can stay pain free).

I have to get back to work.

Hugs! (now that I can without wincing!!!)

    Great news!

It's good to have a goal to meet. I hope that you can get there with minimal pain.

Starting to get old...

Monday, April 30, 2012

I had a great four back pain free days. I woke up in the middle of the night last night in terrible pain again. I'm really getting tired of this. I had grand plans for my body today. Instead, I prayed for the ibuprofin to kick in quickly.

I had a great weekend. Our county's training weekend was happening. Wonderful training, wonderful people. I took a great class on advanced airway management. I got to use a fiber optic glidescope to intubate a neonate (mannequin of course). I learned some new techniques and reviewed skills that I am going to need to recertify next month. I also took courses in EKG interpretation (another great review) and current trends in EMS that covered new stroke guidelines, current drug trends (meth, bath salts, etc) and chemical suicides.

Jane had a terrible night last night. Probably the worst night since she was a newborn. I think this weekend over stimulated her. She was so good all weekend. She was handled by a lot of people and didn't bat an eyelash.

My mom and I are going to the bank today. With the passing of my grandmother, my mom wants to open a bank account with both of our names on it so that if something happens to her or Dad, I will have money to cover expenses. Its a hard thing to think about, but I know it is inevitable. I can't imagine losing my mom. I can't imagine what she's going through right now after losing hers. I know how sad I am that I can't go across the street anymore and play cards with my granny. I couldn't imagine not being able to go across the street and tell my mom that I love her or hug her everyday.

I'm hoping my back pain will ease up enough to get a little exercise in this evening. I'm hoping for a light jog, but will be happy with a walk.

I hope everyone is having a great Monday!

    Sorry to hear about your pains. I have some that I feel like I'm too young to have (near-perpetually aching shoulder, sciatica). I expect that with improved health, better fitness and weight-loss, I will have less pain. I hope that will be true for you also.

I had no idea bath salts were a current drug trend. That is crazy! I wonder what kind of high that brings. Wowza.

    A thousand apologies........ I am running way behind on my blog reading.

The hardest thing for any of us to do is accept our own physical limitations. I have come to believe that our body signals us to slow down and take it easy for a reason and when we don't listen it creates an opportunity for us to rest.

Having watched my wife experience the physical recovery form pregnancy I can only imagine how impatient you must be. However, dear friend, please know you are loved, no matter how in or out of shape you are.

Much Love

Down but not out

Thursday, April 26, 2012

Injuries are preventing me from working out (chronic back and hip pain, bleh). I'm still eating well and maintaining my weight! I'm on the mend and will be back to it next week.

Oops, missed a day

Friday, April 20, 2012

My yesterday was so action packed, I didn't have time to write a blog or do my core workout. I was on track all day though. I did sneak a few of my husbands fries at dinner... and by a few I mean 5. :)

We got a really good bike ride in before we went out to dinner. Grilled chicken salad for me! :)

I'm doing good so far this morning. Need to do my push up challenge.

I'm working our fire department fundraiser tomorrow and on the ambulance sunday, so I may not have time to write this weekend.

Have a great weekend folks!

Three days in a row... on track. I even had a treat tonight (homemade cherry pie), but I knew it was coming and "budgeted" for it.

I even got a run in before it got dark. I procrastinated and procrastinated... but I did it! And, I'm getting faster... Not like I was, but I'm getting there.

Have a great night folks!
