Tuesday day 38

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

Well if I don't get this act together, will be starting back at day 1. who am I fooling better yet only lying to myself. My eves ( not late) right after supper are not good. otherwise not the best but not bad. But not losing as I was so have to tighten it up.
Another knee saga, omg argh pain..... went to bed slept pretty well, got up at 2 to pee and back to bed, was sitting in bed with my knees bent, putting pillow under them as usual went to slide my legs down and my R one stuuck and the pain felt as if my knee cap went up over whatevr the top part is. WOW I roared and screamed nothing I or hubby could do, he was still downstairs so didn't wake him lol So it ached most of the night, woke a few times so not the best today and a busy day and a visit from boss to watch procedings. argh. I am hoping I can get all day done leave at 7:30 back at 6:30 argh.
I go to the dr tomorrow for notes for massage and physio and refill on my arthrotec so will fill him in on my knee, and any other stuff I remember including dad. Oh well could be worse could have broke it or something. I can walk just a pain in specific spot. Wondering if this time it is acl or meniscus not just arthritis.
So today no ttapp for my legs, will do my arm sequence but not pushing this knee.
Bil is having surgery for sure. so will be brought here by ambulance then taken bck to the smaller hospital. I hope all goes well - hard to wait and stuff when none of your immediate family is there. She can't come down as she has such bad vertigo that drs can't seem to find why so not able to travel that far and back in one day.
Have to make my lunch to take today, and get beautiful yet so better go and get ready. have a super day all. cya

    Hang in there Cindy. So sorry about your knee; glad you are seeing the Dr. tomorrow. How about planning your evening snack and making it part of your total for the day ahead of time? It's total calories that count in the end. Careful today, listen to your body. Be well, Joy emoticon

Sunny Sat. Feb 5th day 36?

Saturday, February 05, 2011

LOl will have to read the blog before to know the right day! LOL
Well woke to a sunny morning with NO pain!!! Go for it, I got up and stretched a bit and asked poor walk deprived dog if she would like to go for walk. We met another dog mother and her dog, and we walked for .5 hr. at a med pace. Stayed to the plowed sidewalks so was fine. I did lose one of my ice grips but can't go back to look. NOt over doing it when I am feeling good. Well today, have one load of laundry in, and am so itching to paint or decorate but know that painting now isn't a good idea as we need some nice weather for it to dry well. So will cool my heels and maybe go to library for more idea mags and books or go to get diff paint chips. lol not sure what he wants to do today, still in bed.
I am goint to try very hard to follow the premise of a "diet" that I had followed after I had dd 30 yaers ago when I thought i was fat at 167 lbs. Well dr said so too. lol Was a similar to Canada food guide but it allowed my snack after supper with my tea. Maybe if I know that I am going to have that one thing then I won't be eating all day. Yesterday was terrible for picking and I even said I am bored. got my mags. out and stuff but still was just itchy for food.
Okay off to get this house tidy, shower and see what the day is folding out to be.
cya have a great day all, super choices and I will try to follow my own advice.
HUGS

    You amaze me--I haven't even forced myself off the couch yet today. Yes-I'm dragging the "diet" materials back out. It's obvious I am not doing it on "being good SOME of the time" LOL! I did amazingly well on WW in the early 80's, Also when I counted carbs & fat grams, I know I have to cut processed foods, and empty-white carbs--then also limit good complex carbs. Now to do that on ostly plant strong diet since I'm working cholesterol.

    There is no harm in snacking Cinders as long as you account for it in your tracker- otherwise you'll soon slip into going over your range and putting weight back on.
Try planning snacks into your day! and make them healthy!

Have a good weekend hun emoticon

    Cindy, I graze all day long and even have snacks at night; but, I write it all down and make sure I have calories for those evening snacks. Even if I go over calorie wise I continue to write it down. It just keeps me in check. Of course, I try to keep it all healthy choices. My favorite evening snacks are a bowl of blueberries, partly thawed and/or a bowl of popcorn. I microwave my popcorn in a MW popper without oil and lightly spray it with olive oil. Not butter, but I have learned to like it. Enjoy your weekend; you're off to a great start! Joy

tgif!!! Feb 4 day 35

Friday, February 04, 2011

OH I am not usually a tgif girl, but today with my sore knees and tired I wish it was sat. and I could just laze for while. Oh well not super busy today so far. I took arth. med last night at supper as was just too painful. I slept so so then at 3 went to spare room and slept better. I got up at 5:50 and did TTAPP broom and then got ready for work, so here I sit for few more mins. Had my good breakfast, so not much more I can do to start the day good. I could have way worse problems that pain in my knees.
So not doing well on my challenges to myself. Well now that I think of it, not doing that bad. I drank all my water the last 2 days and had something to eat right after supper last night as was hungry but not later in eve. I went to bed by 9 as waas bushed. boy pain tires me out. Hubby doesn't understand that at all.
Okay best get checking some other stuff instead of rambling on. Have a great day all. cya

  Great job that you're sticking to your goals. Maybe you should think of exercise that's easier on the knees? Enjoy your weekend.

What extreme pain omg I even took one of my tylenol 3 from after surgery. We went to the rv show and after about 4 trailers ( only 3 steps each) and walking on teh concrete I was in agony. omg but we kept going and met up with a friend that has a campsite here in NS and then went and chatted with one that we may stay seasonal with. Also went in at least a doz. diff trailers, 5th wheels etc. up those 3 steps down up down. not sure if it is the type of steps or what but man what pain in both my knees. So had tyleonl 3 that were with me cos was givign to dd as she efell on the ice today and hurt her back and elbow. so took one and will take my arthrotec this eve before bed to hope I sleep well.
Tomorrow is busy day 8 hrs of back to back clients, enough time betweent o uust get to their homes. the one is my 5 hrs of alz. lady so nice. Sat they added 4 hrs so will have full 8 hrs same thing ack to back but one is again a 3 hr visit so 4hr 3hr and one hr.

    It must be frustrating to not know exactly what it is that's causing this to happen! Hope you feel better tomorrow.

Friday day 21

Friday, January 21, 2011

3 weeks does not a habit make, not for me. It takes way way longer- I have stopped biting my nails for months then bang back at it. I have eaten and execised for more than 3 wks and so easy to stop.
MY world is showing me that I have to be consistent and more reliable to me, myself and I. I have had some outer if you will "visions" aha moments ect in past few days. Read a few blogs that have really hit a cord, made me think in different and sometimes new ways.
Then last night I was in bed, had fallen asleep, woke to the most excrutiating pain in my R knee at the top of my knee in the middle felt like a knife was in there OMG I just woke and started screaming. Hubby was on the phone ( dd had called and I hadn't even heard the phone!) anyway he checked me - nothing he could do, it left and then was preceded by a thigh charley horse that is still aching this morning. So add that to a sore back in a specific spot and oh yea my shoulder aching and my R hand falling asleep if I layed a certain way, and I didn't have a great rest.
Today my clents went from one for 9 hrs, to one for 1 hr to none. I am not calling in today. Usually if you don't call they don't call you. Now they may call as have been great at giving me hrs. but if they do I will go but if not I am not going.
Granted after I get moving, I will be going with hubby to get dad water, and then know that we will end up in there for while. So will probably do his housework but that leaves me with the weekend to not feel guilty cos his house is a mess.

So another wake up call. I have to say how many will I get before something happens that I have to really address. Yes I will be addressing them when I go to dr Feb 9th. ( man my thigh is aching still ).

I have only 1 life and as we all know sometimes life is snuffed from a totally healthy person for no understandable reason. But I want to live my life happy, healhty and fit as my title has said for eeek how many years..... ( been at spark but may as well say been lurking as haven't lost a lb from when I started - am actually heavier). I have lost but geesh not great to see my lbs lost now higher than a few years ago.

Not knocking myself, cos yea I am known for perfectionism ( just wrote to a friend not to expect perfectionism ) so repeat to self! LOL But am going to have to figure out this regime or routine better. It is not working I have to be able to do it and just do it and do it till it becomes a better and easier habit. NOT expecting it to be an easy ride but at least easier to convince myself.
SO now back to my scrapbook, my journal, my stretches and perhaps to chiro if my back isn't better soon.
Okay guess my chatty me is back to make up for yesterday, hey maybe that was the processing day! LOL
hugs and I am really going to be thinking and getting this organized. my first try must have been that a try cos it hasn't gone the distance. but I am in this race and not giving up anytime soon if I have any say in it.
HUGS
