What is all the fuss about??? I did it, I did the beginner first day - it was only 5 mins but I did it. I know that I can do it, I will continue. I have a plan. I needed a map that I could follow and this has a month at a glance. you only click on the day. Tomorrow 10 mins.

Will say I was a tad winded but could have done a bit more. So glad I am trying that is the goal to do it for 30 days no matter my pain, Pain is always here and I have to work through it. So will do my best, that is all I can ask of myself.

    I know how you feel, working out despite pain. I've been in pain since I was 9 years old and you do adapt to it. emoticon working through it!

Will do it Wednesday

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

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!!

    Funny how we show one face to our loved ones and another to others. Guess we're all different people to different people or in different circumstances.
Don't get me started on fuel prices! And I reckon with the flooding it's going to get worse and with farmland ruined food prices and/or shortages are going follow, just know it.

Keep going with the starter Cinders emoticon

Tumultuous Tuesday ( self rant and vent)

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

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

I am thinking that maybe it's best to just not pay too much attention to how we feel about our goal. But just get into a habit of doing the 'right thing'.
Motivation or no motivation, I want to try to just get on the bike in the morning, the way I also brush my teeth without thinking about if I want to or not. I hope to some day also automatically ignore or say no to most treats.

I guess I am lucky most of the time in that since I am retired that I have all the time in the world for ME!
I do not have any family living close to where I do not have the pressure of family who *need* me now~~
My SIL required a lot of time back last Fall...but sadly she passed away at the beginning of January....but even giving her my time still left loads of time for me~~

MY problem is not that I cannot *find* time for me~~My problem is more that I need to do the things for me that are better for me!
Such as~~NOT sitting here at this computer reading & writing ALL day! emoticon

So with that....I am off here and away to LIne Dancing!!

    No your not stupid your dealing with a lot of issues your health for one and not having money is depressing enough, but add the pain your constantly in well that's enough for anyone to want to give up I know we're in the same boat.
Sure sometimes I feel like giving up literally, the pain can be unbearable at times and the stresses of not having money , taking from Peter to give to Paul.....
BUT we both have love in our family and a good support system here , so you need to pull yourself together on these kind of days and get as much done as possible, your family is counting on you.... good for you for getting up and pushing yourself!

If you don't take care of you how can you care for Mur and dad when needed.

Take the stress out of thinking of doing exercise and find something you love.

Am proud that you've gone and done some exercise today, make it a streak emoticon emoticon

Marvelous Monday

Monday, February 17, 2014

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.

    I can relate. I stopped blogging because I didn't feel I had anything to say that would help anyone. My problems are consistency and persistence too. I know I'm capable of doing better but I get tired and I don't try hard enough.

Tuesday eve

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Just going to go to bed, not sure it is a great idea, but not worse than here. I am in such pain since last night. My L hip aches and hurts, both knees are bad, wearing my brace and tensor bandage on either knee, ( not helping) my L ankle and foot are throbbing. arghhhhhhhhh no idea where the hip issues came from but just wasn't able to lay on it or anything. Oh well...... it will pass I am sure.
Also got word today that hubbys aunt on other side of the family, and his god mother passed today. We have no money to go to the island again and there is also a storm coming so won't be attending that funeral. I hope that is all. not coming in 3 as some say... eeek
Did well today, we went to visit sil as was her birthday on Sunday and her son left for his job. Good visit and got home before dark. Now going to go to bed, hope to read and sleep. just wish the aching would go.
Oh hubby went to drs today and lol she couldn't find when he was to come........ it was tomorrow! LOL
HUGS all cya

    I hate to hear you are having this problem. I wonder if it's due to the impending storm. I know I'm like a weather barometer. If bad weather is coming I hurt all over and may as well go to bed. I recall seniors telling me this when I was young.

I'm sorry about your husband's aunt. I went through this many years ago and lost all the female members of the family. They were all gone in about 3 years time.
