sparkalicious September!!!

Thursday, September 01, 2011

Okay the day has arrived and I know it will be a challenging day and I will want to eat whatever, not do whatever, but I WILL BE STRONGER than those urges. Just for today I will eat healthy, exercise and think positive. Then I will get up and repeat!!!

Yoga is registered and all is well, the owner even called me today to check in. So now lol I go to yoga at 6:45 till 8:30. Get this!!!! the person that hubby is buying the phone from, didn't get back to him yesterday but said she can meet him at 8 pm this eve! OMG well he will have to drive me to yoga then come pick me up. Figures! LOL

So today is sunny/cloudy and a bit of a breeze. Fall is in the air for sure but that's okay. I hope it is a long fall and the snow doesn't come till next year! LOL

Okay so now turn off puter, and get ready to get some stuff done around here, then get groceries, and take Anna her $10 for my hair and see Thomas. Have a good plan for today, now hope hubby hasn't planned anything else. he is still having issues with the tv. lol

cya later!!!

NO snappy title today LOL
I am up, I have had my gf cereal and almond milk and I just got a call from dil to come get hair cut in half hr. So now as long as hubby doesn't have to go meet someone for phone I am good to go. I am also going to have him take time to look at the site and see if I should be safe to sign up. It is only 30 but is the fact that they then have my info. I am not an online buyer and also this part. card isn't as secure as another we used in the past.
So are we all ready for sept. For many of us, myself included this feels as if it is the new beginning time, kids back to school ect. even though it has been years for my kids back to school time, I love fall and always feel rejuvenated at this time.
Bring on Sept 1. Going to be hard, I admit it but guess you choose your hard! LOL I have no excuse not even having to work so will pace my hip and knee and do it. JUST DO IT!!!

Hope today hubbys phone saga ends, He is driving me nuts, but I do understand, we are locked into payinf and we don't have a phone to use. But wish the ones selling them would reply when they say they will. He also was frustrated with the new tv, internet system fiber op system when he turned the dvd system off the tv went off. I lol wonder did he read any instructions but wasn'\t about to ask lol

Okay gotta go shower and get ready to visit Thomas, albeit from other side of gate but hey will be a visit and hair cut. and probaby feel baby eva move cos mum is going to be up near me cutting hair. she is not one that likes anyone to feel her bellly.
my friend is having twins soon has made it to 37 wks and has a condition that could make them come early and she still is fine. so hope all goes well for her, she had better grow up quick that girl with 2 on the way.

will drop in again probably gotta chat with my buddies! cya

    Sounds like a busy day ahead of you. I'm not a fan of fall. It's not that I have anything against it really except that it marks the end of summer. Today, regardless of my to-do list, I am going swimming. The water is getting chilly already. I'm so quickly running out of swims.

Sunday eve

Sunday, August 28, 2011

Well we have been spared Irene I think, we have some wind and are supposed to get rain this eve. I have the windows open cos it is so humid. hot and humid. I hope all my kids and dad are in as hear sirens this eve.

Good day, bad day. We took Lisa nd Mike out for brunch at coras for their 1st anniversary. Good time, till we were getting in the car and hubby didn't grab the edge of his jacket and his BRAND NEW cell phone crunched in between the door and seat. cracked screen, bent the edge. of course the reg insurance doesn't cover stupidity - he said it not me. Yes I am sad that it happened, but more so it was only 69$ cos we were reactivating and now to buy it - don't ask how much it is worth. lets just say we have a 3 year plan to pay for that we now will not have the same phone. We haven't much $ right now, and now have to buy another phone which to get close would be 4-500 but will be at least 250. argh omg!!! so he is taking long distance off our reg. phone, lessening something else so that we can in the long run make up the diff. Geesh!!! oh well......

I am proactivly getting ready for exercise LOL sounds silly but am wanting to do it, been walking some and now am getting the room re organized downstairs, and putting up my vision poster, and my "words " ( the ones you can stick and replace on the wall) that hubby bought for me while back. I have my set of towels, my dvds out, my yoga mat ready. I also am having a hard time getting ahold of the yoga place as only open during classes. I will go back on the site and see if I can get in. if not the community rec has some yoga classes that I can join. Not as expensive but main reason I wanted that was 30 for unlimited is great and I can see how the back ones would help, the core ones ect.

So tomorrow, call or email the yoga place, take dd to wheatons ( an awesome store that is country furniture ect. but she wants keruig coffees.

I hope Irene has blown herself out, has done way too much damage, caused death so hope she is done. I hope the rest all leave us all alone and just go out to sea.... doubt that will happen but we can all hope.
Going to sort my sheets of paper, also going to write out the foods for the breast cancer diet, the antiinflammatory diet and make sure I incorperate those more often along with the veggies and fruit I am using.
Really waiting for Sept to come... haven't done what I said so far, but plan to recitfy that. and as we say if you fail to plan you plan to fail. Well I have a plan and plan to get healthy!!!
HUGS all and night sparkers!

    We felt the winds & rain last night (Quebec). Pretty much destroyed our shade tent, but no trees down... in our yard anyhow. I bet there will be tons that I see on my walk today. This morning though - sunny & calm. Bye bye Irene.

I love the idea of putting together a dedicated exercise spot with everything at hand. The more prepared you are to exercise, the less excuse not to!

I'm also really enthusiastic about your food list. Please share when you have done it. Have you checked out the website, World's Healthiest Foods: Might be a good resource for your list!

    Hope you dreams with Irene are calmer than mine. No damage to my house. Just lots of tree branches and howling winds. Scary.

    We still have wind here but the rain has stopped- I think those of us in NS have dodged the bullet. Take care, get your plan together for September and make it a positive move forward. You can so do this...MJ

Tired Thursday

Thursday, August 25, 2011

Good morning all... I woke up in the night still with aches in bothmylegs and at 7 am had a bad pain in the front muscle of my thigh. sigh. but oh well I will be fine.
Going to have a great healthy breakfast and then when hubby gets up will go get the food sales that we didn't get last week that I need. Flyers will be over this eve.
I have some phone calls to make, wish me well, - insurance re long term payment for while.... eeek and have to call physio and see when they can fit me back in. I wish hubbys insurance would just pay out like mine - you can submit online so much faster. oh well at least se have insurance!
always a positive to be had. I can walk, the pain isnt constant, some day I will get a new knee ( eek I guess LOL), I have a house, just enough $ to cover the bills, I have family and still a lot of my health.
Okay not a lot to say, will just end up rambling. Going to get some breaky and wake hubby up in while and off we go.
oh soninlaw came down with nico to our place when he was out for walk, wanted to know where the blood came from on the deck. LOL I thought I had washed and wiped it all up. Oh well told him we can't even find out where she got cut. and they were both fine when he came in our place. so Marlo remember the lesson - don't go near Nicos bowl of food! LOL
cya later on hugs

    Your motivation really gives me a boost. I know how pain can make life tough but you seem to just want so bad to keep going. I just love it.
I wanted to tell you that my doctor ordered me a specialty cream for my foot pain. It contains lidocaine, a muscle relaxant and neurontin for neurapathy.
I am amazed at the things they can do and it really helps. Take care of the pain so it doesn't slow you down.
Keep counting your blessings. You inspire me to do the same.

    Hi Cindy, I've been cutting down on my online time but have tried to keep up. Friends posting everyday may only hear from me once or twice a week though. I agree with Tempist; Nico's aggression does have to be delt with. Boxers are very dominant dogs if you allow them to be. Agression is agression and it could be a child sometime. Dogs view children differently than we do. Sorry, but needs to be said.
I love that you are keeping your positive attitude and counting your blessings. I hate that you are still having trouble sleeping and finding relief for your very real pain.
Really hope they find some solutions for you. Be well.
Hugs, Joy

    emoticon You're doing great with your positive outlook! Poor Marlo - it could have been much worse. I included a link in my last comment to deal with Nico's food aggression - this is NOT something that can be accepted & let go. Next time, it could a child too close to the food....

Dr apointment.

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Okay where to start... he didn't have the results of the nerve testing yet, geesh guess she hasn't gotten her paperwork done - the dr that did it. oh well. He did have my CT scan which was a bunch of mumble to hubby and i got some of the jist till he started talking reg. talk .lol
L1-2 mild OA ( osteoarthritis)
L2-3 small disc herniation compressing R something and some OA
L3-4 moderate bulging disc annulus. some oa anad short pedicles and mild central stenosis ( narrowing of area)
L4-5 as above
L5-S1 (starting of sciatic area) diffuse bulging of disc. and OA, and more narrowing but nerve not displaced yet no focal disc herniation

So that is have osteoarthritis, have 2 spots that are narrowing and some bulging herniated discs. He feels that could be dong some of the hip, but the worst part is on the R side which surprised him
He is sending me to a neurologist/anesthesiologist to discuss pain ect and perhaps an epidural. I looked and said NO I can't do it. he asked why I told him again how terrified I am, dh was watching but stayed quiet. I started to cry Dr said you can go talk to him but the decision is yours. anyway........... I am hoping that the new meds work enough to help me.
My R knee exray shows severe deterioration which has worsen a lot since 2 years ago, showed me where and said that is is bad. but he wants to figure this out before sending me to dr brian again. so now I know why it is so very sore and swollen.
I am off work till nov 4th so far. I have an apt in Oct and again in Nov. I have no clue how long it will take to get in to this new specialist. Anyway he was pleased with the ct scan cos that gave him some ideas of what it could be. He is pretty sure that it is not MS he said wished he had the other results. I am sure by Oct apointment the results were in. My apt was to be in a month but she couldnt fit me, so gave me oct 4, nov 4, dec 5. so have my apt. they are always 15 mins as per norm. but he was with me for 30 today. sorry to the ones behind me!!
Hubby and I went down to visit nico as the kids both worked today, just cos he is still so new. Fine, and then we went down and took both dogs for walk, wow hubby walked a fair bit, my knee hurt but I want to walk. We then went back to dd house, and they both had a drink. then marlo our dog went to eat out of his bowl OMG thank god hubby was right there, Nico much larger and stronger, growled grabbed her an dshe cried, hubby yelled and clapped his hands. they both looked up and moved. marlo walked away adn spit and a smallish med size amt of blood and spit came out she then walked a bit and had it dripping. I was like oh great. anyway I took her out and check her face, and mouth didnt'see anyting, so checked her neck as he had her there. but was only her fur. so we are thinking since he was over her, his nail may have hit the outer section of her mouth. But we will watch the food and put it up when they are around. They did tell her he may guard his food. whew. otherwise they were fine.
I took my sundress back......... I loved it but only wore it for half day adn was all pilling on side. I realize it probably would as it was tshirt material but not after a few hrs. They didn't have any other to fit so oh well at least I know I will again find a dress to wear. YES! thanks Deanna!
Now tomorrow, call insurance co so they know I will be needing long term, take note to ei to contiue ei to end of sick benefits. and go to the yoga place to inquire about classes.
We don't think we will bother to go to trailer thurs as we are not sure about the hurricane and rain. If it is going to rain andblow not sure we want to be in trailer as is pain in hard rain. We have to walk dog to pee and can't just say out pee come back lol and we have stuff to do here.
Okay long but you know as much as I do for now. I have also charted my food and had no processed at all yet today! not going to eithe ras it is 7 pm.
cya hugs and love you all!!!

    Well, I'm glad you don't have MS & that the doctor now has a better idea of what's going on. But it's frustrating that the other doctor didn't send your nerve conduction test. At least you don't have to worry about going back to work just yet.

Yikes! to Nico & Marlo at the dog dish. I'm glad Marlo is ok. Your husband did the right thing by clapping/yelling to interupt the fight. Food agression is a serious problem in a big dog like Nico & I would STRONGLY encourgare your DD to nip it right in the bud! Here is a link to a good article on how to solve the problem: (copy/paste)
If she has any specific questions, just forward them to me & I'll be glad to help.

    oh wow! how challenging for you! I am so sorry. I have a brother who has been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and looked at lots of online info to help him last month. Bought him some vitamins from Amway and one in particular that is to protect the liver. With all the meds, he is afraid that his liver will suffer. He takes a few others for other health issues too and I told him that he needs to take his vites 4-5 hours before or after the other meds. I hope he figures that out. Wish I was close by to help him more. If you want to look into that Amway herbal supplement for liver support, let me know. I also read lots on Dr. Mercola´s site and what he recommends for pain.
And what a fright with the dogs! Poor pup. emoticon
I am saying a prayer for you right this minute!
