As you all know I have been off work again, due to sciatica and bad pain. I have many worries and thoughts going on in my head, and yea worry is not productive but we all do to some extent and I am much better than I used to be. I worry about how long will this pain stay with me, will I be able to go back to work, do I want to go back to work, or maybe take time to live while hubby and I can.. do I want to travel, or build on our land ( well her blogs make me semi want to be out on the land.. but we wouldnt be in a close knit community like she is), will we have enough $$. Well surprise surprise!! ( not really!) she had dealt with all this and way way more. Much more than I have had to deal with - the only thing lately that I can compare would be my mum passing away.
So yea took me a long time to read all those blogs all so well written and heart felt but glad I did. Cos you know what--- it proved what she and many other sparkers say........ she is just a human who has been through a lot of trials and lots of problems huge ones infact, and she has gone up and down on the scale, she has binged as we all do sometimes, she has learned to love exercise and most of all to love herself and life!! again CONGRATS and I am going to learn from her!!!
Now it is late and I am going to take another pill cos I want to sleep and the pain in bad since I have been to physio... she didn't move me much just put the tens machine on but what hip pain! anyway no complaints just letting you know. lol
HUGS to all and again I am so lucky to have so many spark friends that motivate and support me!!
Night all!!! sleep well, wake healthy and ready to start another great day! Started EI june 17th 2011

Well it was a terrific day even though most of it was spent in EXTREME pain. bad pain. I sponge bathed my first client, the 2nd didnt' want one and I did her house work, the 3 rd had shower and housework. I was done and just sat, hurt so bad. she knew and was worried. Anyway got home and called for dr apt AUG 2nd!!!! well uh NO. So said duty dr. said they are booked I said never mind I am in too much pain to think. So laid back down on couch with ice and near tears. Then phone rang, we had a cancellation for duty clinic 6:30 OMG thank you thank you. He spent nearly 30 mins on me, which is long for night clinic. he moved my legs, did the pulses, felt for knots, clots and then took a tounge depressor and broke it and poked me with it to see my feeling. Wanted to know when my back started hurting... said this am. So he got a chart and asked me to show the path of this pain. Said could be siatica... I said it isnt' in my bottom or my back of my leg but it can still go that way or a disc in my back. He also ordered a CT scan but that won't be soon as of the long wait time. So off work for 10 working days. ... He wants me to REST and not lift or anything much. so we are going to the trailer and back for dd birthday adn hubbys dr apt then back for while. so will be nice to get away where there are no stairs and I can't run around busy all the time.
Dh and dog both still sore. dog seems some better off and on,and hubby well his back still not great. Anyway we will be fine.
My one lady said you are strong I know you are a survivor LOL
so going to stop the challenge as we may have limited internet and also no scale. I will concentrate of rest and relaxing something I don't do well.
HUGS but will be around. we will probably get internet while there just not sure if be all the time.
HOpe you all make great choices and do well. Me I will try my hardest to eat well and at least walk. He didn't say I couldn't walk.
OH yea and they liked my hair do. and tomorrow we go see my friends and will spend time with dad i did mention that it was the 2nd anniversary so at least he knows I didn't not think of Mum./

Today I was to get my blood work done to check for diabetes. I know I hate needles but wasn't that nervous. I slept well last night and the entire night in our bed( lol I can hear him snoring now though! LOL) Anyway, got up and suffice to say that I have gotten my exercise going up and down stairs to the bathroom at least 8 times in just less than 2 hrs. A few times nearly vomitting. So thought for bit I was okay, would go get blood done, started out and was able to drive to hosp. then had to park in emerg to run in to bathroom. My common sense said you are not going to be able to sit here for 3 hrs to do the glucose testing. So came home and still going but feeling better. I hope so. Will see how I am by noon. I was supposed to have dad come over for supper and also go to Tims for coffee visit with friend. So will see. pretty sure wasn't my nerves that bad, so maybe something I ate last eve and now will be fine.
Positive thinking right! LOL
I am going to figure my own exercise for all these challenges, I will do some from here, but one is doing cardio on day that other is doing strength and I can't keep up. I really want to lose 5% of wt. and like being on a team, and also even if diabetes is a scare like the cancer one, I need to keep this under control wth healthy eating. My leg is giving me some wonders, pins and needles, dull ache...
so going to concentrate on 5% challenge and logging food( which is going to be healthy!), and exercise.
Now on with my day....... I was going to exercise but had to stay near bathroom. now that the pain is gone I will do some strength exercises today.
We only have one thing to do today, other than I was going to go see Thomas but not now. I don't want him being ill nor his preg. mum. she heard the babies heart beat and they are prtty sure there is only 1 in there!
Okay off to get this day underway, after a bad first start!
Cya and hey don't catch anything from my post LOL hugs

I guess we had our sunny day when we most needed it! LOL it is cooler, dull and looks like rain, but that could change.
Enjoyed myself last eve, had a short rest late afternoon then was awake and up on here till after 10! I redid my page and wandered around seeing what I got myself into with these challenges. I am going to get a 12x12 sheet from my craft room and get it organized on the daily/weekly things for each challenge and put it on the fridge. With my time so limited in morning and tired at night, I have to be able to see what is expected of me. Easier right in front of me.
I will make it a vision board of sorts too. I have one downstairs in my work out area so will have one for up here too.
For now, I am going to go make my breakfast and do my bootcamp challenges and more cos know that it won't be 5 mins of cardio. Okay best get moving, laundry, breakfast, cardio and toning and oh man...............lol track my food! lol
I am missing another sparker.... her internet was down, but see her on FB. Carol come on back!!!!
HUGS to all, a great day in my little world. Going to go see Thomas today for bit if they are home! cya

The sun is out but was below ero this am and frosty! brrr. glad I don't have to be anywhere till 11:30. I was going to take the dog for a walk but since I am technically at work 8-6 they can call and sometimes do in the early am. so stayed near a phone.
Yesterday we went to ds for supper. His 2 years at community college doing a chefs apprentice paid off LOL that was inbetween his other university stints for which he is still paying off his student loan. Supper ws great, but then I love ham. He roasted some veggies and had lots of stuff. I made apple crisp for dessert without a lot of sugar. Hubby, myself, dd, and her hubby, my dad and of course Chris, Anna and Thomas rounded out the crowd. Not a huge crowd but that is our family. Thomas got his easter gift early as they will be busy easter sunday and I have to work. We bought him some blocks - he loves to stack things and got the hang of them right away, but has to go it on the table which is just his height. Never mind starting on the floor and trying to make it realllllllly high! LOL
So today, I work 11:30- 6 but will more likely be 5:30 cos I can get to the last place early which is better for us both. I will be losing that client soon ( the one I said I didn't like going to but we do great now) as she is going to do self managed care. She has been going downhill even since I started with her and she is only 32. But this way she can have so many hrs a week and manage them to when she needs them. sort of like a ;biz she can hire who she wants and the hrs up to what the govt will give her.
Tomorrow I work in am, early but am off most of afternoon then back for 5-6 which they didnt cancel so guess supper at sil is out. oh well can leave hubby there after we visit and I cn go get him. have to see as I will be done there by 5:30 too. hmmm.
Okay not much more to say this am. Thanks for the new friends and welcome to the 2 news teams. I am not a huge team person but always learn something and get new friends and blogs to read.
HUGS all and have a great Saturday!!!
