Yesterday was the worst pain in a good 3 wks. Everywhere hurt, I wondered if it was partially the 5 mins of exercise I did, thought no it wasn't hard. So woke this morning to my reg. pain. Ironic how you can get used to pain and even though it is as bad, you are used to it so it doesn't seem it. Also had that reiterated at my chronic pain classes.
So today was day 2 and I got it done. The stretching thing after is really a great one. I was impressed that they do all the body. Told hubby he should watch the stretching one.
Anyway better pain today, and better mood because of it. Still not doing well with elbow and foot and butt but at least not a headache to add to it all.
HUGS and off I go to ice now. Being precautionary for sure. I want to get this wt off and move easier if not better so dont' want to give up cos of worse pain. And as I keep reminding myself and others that say don't.... dr says worse thing is to not move.

Okay last eve while on here, someone mentioned Hasfit and I saw a beginner exercise routine that I can try... it is a 30 day routine and I am going to start today. I went to bed with that thought, felt great about it.
Slept well till around 4 ish when my L butt cheek started hurting, down my thigh it went... argh. off and on sleep till nearly 7 and got up. Have pain in butt, foot, upper and lower back, and headache. It has been pretty steady weather for past few days and last night it snowed and is a heavy wet snow. Thinking this is the culprit as nothing else changed. So doing it anyway. Since it is day 1 I am not going to put it off, I will wait till my pills help a bit, have moved around a bit and then see how I do. I AM NOT GOING TO QUIT and change my start day.
Dad has me frustrated again lol so many people say what a sweet cute guy. He goes to Tims and the women come out and hug him. HE barely speaks to me and when he does it is always gruff. Told him this am, wont be able to get out of the driveway till Mur shovels at least the end of it. What are you talking about I will plow through it, I said well if you get stuck, Murray wont want to push you out, he has a very sore side and shoulder and that snow is heavy. He is so stubborn and bullish with me and yet others see this sweet old man. argh so didn't argue said I have been out and everyone is shovelling interesting your small car will get through it. whatever be a pain to get all dressed to just turn and come back in. OH well his choice... I just don't want to live with a grouchy hubby when he has to help. He may not even go just likes to complain...
We were talking again and this province is getting totally ridiculous in price of things, we are the highest in Canada for electricity, very high if not highest for gas ( and refineries are about a 15 min drive from my house) and we are sick of it. Even before the decrease in our funds but man. Hubby never wanted to move here, but we decided to keep the peace with his mother ( worst thing we ever did cos didn't work anyway), we would stay in maritimes. He often wishes we had gone to ON. anyway now we were talking about if we went rving fulltime, then we could move to ON as our perm. residence. Just talking and know we are stressed right now but never know.... this winter has certainly been conducive to going south but lol have to be way south as even they have had bad weather.
Oh well off to get a smoothie for breakfast I think....... or maybe oatmeal with hubby after I work out. Wish me well I hope I can do most of it, or less reps and get the idea down. I will try to do some as my dr says don't stay still worst you can do. So not that I do stay still, but have to get this wt off.
HUGS have a good day!!

Okay what gives with me. WHAT!!!! I do not understand what this is and why I do it. How do I get so prepared, ready, up, all about health and movement, get so motivated and then 10 mins later could care less. It happens so darn often. I don't feel scared, don't feel as if I can't do it, I just don't care at all.
Then I happened upon this:
Staring at me on FB... Not even a friend had shared it, was just on my page. Well, that has to be a sign, I am not stupid, nor am I foolish. Procrastinator, worrier, tired, sore, lazy, ummm sure. But I know I am not stupid. I also know that I have to lose this wt to feel better and healthier, to be able to move more and do more.
All my dreams are based on being healthy, even the ones that most people don't know about and the ones that I don't know how to go about doing. I am having a hard time this past while. Some stuff is going on that I can't talk about and it is weighing me down cos I hate seeing hubby have more to deal with. Oh well that is life and together we will get through it all again. We are both fine, not scaring anyone there are no health issues you guys don't know about etc
SO as per usual, once I start writing or thinking and getting it out, I can again see clearly, This time I haven't eaten or anything, it was fast was like man wish I had slept more- should go do some exercises... then remember take dad to hospital this am for O2 count and suddenly oh what the hell, I can't be bothered. and that is it I HAVE TO BOTHER ABOUT ME. I have a great spark and real friend, that is only 10 mins away, she is doing it, she has problems, she has issues but she can do it, She is making herself her first priority.... so why am I not trying too? I have all of you guys behind me.... and even if I have no money, things look dim right now, other issues, that doesn't mean I should make them worse by gaining wt and being in worse health. Get out and take care of yourself Prove you are not foolish and god forbid I hate this word but stupid. I feel if you know what to do, how to do it, but just don't that borders on being stupid. Argue with me, cos I know I am not stupid so ..........
now I am truly going up and doing my exericses. NOW. will even leave this on and come back and edit it. I promise ME and those of you that read this far!!!
Okay back.... did my phsyio and some wts for upper body. now have to wake hubby up in time to take dad to hospital for his O2 test. cya
and yea as per usual I feel better.. lol

Not sure why I haven't been blogging. Every time I go to blog I think I have nothing new to say so just don't bother. No it isn't that I have been hiding, I haven't done great, but not no major bad hard spots. Playing with the same old 3 lb up and down. But this am, I was thinking so many people want to control things, others whatever. I am not a great control person but then realized I can't even control something I can have control over - what I put in my mouth and how much I move!!! I am sure I have known that for years lol but it somehow just came into perspective this morning.
I also saw on my spark page don't say I can't ........... an appropriate thing to see this morning. I re read Steph-knee's blog about 14 days left in Feb. and yes I can do something about it. Also Mother Nature and I were talking yesterday and she is doing so great, sounds great, eating great, moving She is blowing me out of the dust!!! LOL I am so happy for her and know she will reach her goal. So after talking to her, and moaning about lack of funds big time, but also knowing I can still have a house and the ability to pay the bills, I got off the phone did my physio, and made one of my fav. suppers - stir fry which she was also having.
I also read something else yesterday and it too has given me more resolve. So even though we are still broke, still have pain, and all the things called life, that doesn't mean I can't give it my best shot while I am able. I want to be "able' for a long time to come so better get with my program. No one elses but mine - what works for me, may not work for you. But in saying that what I am doing now isn't working, I am not thinking it is the program as much as it is my regular issues. CONSISTENCY and PERSISTANCE. So have some stuff done already today, and know what all I am going to do. Have my list and am sticking to it. No reason I can't eat healthy and move more. Pain can be a factor but as my dr and specialist said staying still is worse, not that I do stay still but I can certainly move more.
Today it will be the bike and walk around house as it is super super slippery outside.
HUGS and I leave you all with this........
I am MY biggest PRIORITY starting NOW. I was my worst enemy and now am my best friend.
