Everything seemed to fall into place today. Got what I wanted done. Went where I needed to go and even got the 2 balls of yarn to make scarves for my friend and dd friend. Even in the colours they wanted!
I ate well, got to the cals I needed and all was healthy. Good ratio too. Only thing not great was I only walked to the library and to the mail. But still some strange butt leg issues and hoping that isn't starting up.
Think now will go knit then in a bit go to dd. to sand her bathroom trim around her mirror and paint it. Or sand and she can paint tomorrow! LOL
HUGS all cya in the morning!

OKay all. Slept okay just keep waking from dreams ect. I wil be interested when my fitbit comes to see how well I am actually sleeping. Perhaps I am dreaming that I am waking up so often LOL
Today is busy but that's okay.... we are going to the veggie store, pharmacy for hubby for more losenges he is full of cold again. He never gets sick and I almost every year get a cold either spring or fall and so far not much of anything. Knock on wood!
I also have to go to the library, and the fabric store. I want to make 2 scarves. A friend of mine who must be the best person in the world, saw me and wanted a scarf like mine. I hope I can find more wool in that colour. And one of dd friends wants one. (The other friend I just mentioned has leukiemia and is a nurse, she has a port so she can put her meds in herself daily. She is off work right now not feeling well but boy she cares so much. She organized a fund raiser for a friend of hers with breast cancer to get this friend much needed funds and help. She goes out of her way for everyone. So when she wanted the scarf I said no problem. )
We should probably go to the grocery store too and get a few things we need. Will look on line to see the flyers as they won't come yet. Probably tomorrow.
So a spark friend needs a push.................. she needs to get healthy for her health, herself and her family. I am going to meet this person in person this spring if I have my way! We don't live too far apart but as you know life is busy for us both. She has helped me when I had my breast cancer scare and just listened to me moan and groan. I am hoping she comes and starts over. Even if it is with the chair exercises or whatever.
So putting this out here for you Carol.............
one of the sparkers who really motivated me BEMORESTUBBORN said to me one day
What are you going to do today, to make your tomorrow a better day!!?? for some reason that really stuck in my head and reasonated to me. Perhaps it won't be your AHA bulb as it was mine, but hopefully something will stick.
I dont profess to know much of anything on this journey, but hope that you will start and travel along with me. HUGS
and hugs to all my sparkers who keep me going and comign back when I stop, start, get confused, frustrated and yea happy and more positive most times thanks to them.
HUGS all around!!!

OKay back from Moncton. So tired it is a 3 hr drive and we went, stopped and picked up the trailer and then went to the dealer. We also looked at 5th wheels and spent a good deal of time there. Left at 3;30 and home at 7:30 but we stopped to have our picnic - we ate for the first time today at 4 pm!! i had a cup of water with lemon and then a tea. Ate egg, and big salad and 3 cups water. Got home and had oatmeal for supper. So we had lunch supper late, then breakfast at supper.
Not much more new, have 1,000 cals left if I do the zig zag thing. and if not have about 500-700. So what can I eat that isnt' full of carbs and isnt' going to give me more( - yes we had to stop for me, extreme pain and diarhea everytime I eat veggies) diarhea. So now slowing down, checking here and emails.
My back didn't do too bad in the truck, do find my L butt hip area getting those pains I got before I was put off work, had it yesterday too. so far my toes are fine.
Don't remember if I said yesterday, but the insurance person called to see what is new ect. funny cos hubby said watch they will call and then you will get your $$. and even though they aren't really connected, yes got the $ today. lol
Okay off to call dad, as he scared the bejeebeers out of me. an email that just said in its heading HOSPITAL so I am like omg did he have to go to ..... read it and he needs a drive to hosp on friday for an ultrasound of his kidneys cos he has to drink a lot of water so thinks he needs a driver. lol no problem......
HUGS and will be back tomorrow.
take care all.

Morning, been a long time since I got up at 6:30. But we want to leave by 8 and I was making a salad to take and had to make and chart it and make something for hubby too. Now have to wake him up to get ready to go.
Sun is up, no weather that we have heard of so all should be a good drive. We have an hr drive to pick up the trailer, then about 2 -2.5 to get to the dealer. Then we are coming back. Not sure if we will stop in Truro to see sil or not, depends on time and hubby.
Okay off on our adventure...... taking my tylenol for my back just in case. it is still twinging but not as bad.
Have a great day all and will be back later.

Well it isn't even 9 pm but been a very long evening for me. I am blah, sore, tired, hurt, just tired of it all. Interesting how much pain affects everything and how not being in pain for while lowers your tolerance when it rears its ugly head again.
My back has been pretty good since I stopped work. That amazingly enough was May 30th wow almost a year! geeesh. It hurt into the summer but since fall been pretty good. Of course my leg knee were issues and still are to a point. I have done so much better since my brace and now that my back is hurting so bad, I just am frustrated.
I am really also questioning this "diet" biz. I am sick and tired of finding it so hard, - now I am not saying hard in the I don't want it to be hard, I just want it to be done... kind of way. I am saying that I feel as if I am making it harder than it should be. Eat healthy, exercise, and lose wt. Well we have all been taught that but seems as if that doesn't work for everyone, now granted I also haven't been able to exercise much in past 2 years at least, other than off and on walking and bike. ( then get angry cos yes I know I do really know there are chair exercises and such and I am just not doing it) also I feel as if I research and study it all too much and want to do it right HMMM that perfectionist thing coming out again. argh
I have read about the grain stuff and agree, it isn't what our parents/grandparents even some of us ate. it is so genetically modified and gross that it isn't healthy. I am doing not bad not eating but just feel as if I am not doing it right. Supposed to know if I am getting enough carbs, from the right sources, protein ( find it hard to know how much and that veggies will give me enough but eat meat anyway) and fat and then the right amt of the right type. OMG driving myself crazy.
Now some is the pain, and was going to go for walk, but hurts to move. then was going to go to bed cos thats what I feel like but if I go to bed now, I will be in such pain by midnight from laying still. So used my daily walking as exercise cos it was tough enough.
Now that the venting, poor me, pity party is over....... cos there really isn't areason for it. I can walk, move, talk, ect. I am going to ever ever so slowly get down on the yoga mat and stretch.
and yea I once again screwed up, we made apt for the truck to get summer tires on for 11:30 tues. not thinking that I could have gone to yoga then. argh. and wed. we will be in the truck nearly all day.
okay cya strrrrrrrrrrrrretccccccccccccccch. OUCH but feels so good.
