Good afternoon all! Usually it is early morning, but I got caught up doing emails then said Oh Yoga!!! I went to a new class for me, was taught by my back care yogi so was similar and good. Sure did give me a streeeetch in the inner thighs and hips I had to stop for some and just stretch easily. Got a good sweat for some of it as we were deep breathing and moving through aseries of poses. Was great. Had 2 stops on way home as returns had to be made.
We must remember we are babysitting Lisas dog as they went home to his home as there are a number of birthdays they are celebrating all this weekend. We will bring Nico here for some and home for some. I wonder what he will think being alone all eve. they will be back monday. He will be so happy to see them. Lisa was worried he may think they are giving him away but he knows us and will be for the most part in his house. lol
Tonight is legion night for dad and hubby, I may go. They are serving lasanga and I have enough cals to have it, and have had only cereal this am, and no carbs for lunch. Will decide when I get there but knowing I am able without going over is great. I have done well with food since I started my what can I do....
and so saying........
What can I do today to make my tomorrow a better day?
- walked dog 3x around track with a wind ( hurricane passing us by)
-went to yoga
- sitting taller when at puter and when walking ( when I remember which is more often!)
- drank my water
-walked with dh while we walked Dd dog. whew he is strong
- gave dad my garlic bread when out for supper ( had lasanga at the legion this eve)
- had an apple for snack
- did some slow breathing and stretches this eve when back tightened
Today at yoga she asked us to lay and think what is our greatest want for ourselves. I thought immediately health. and as I breathed I was able to see the healthy back and legs and the bad spine leave. I kept it up as we did our cool down and breathing. I am very surprised at how easily I am able to empty my mind, cos at home when I try to meditate I am not able. Guess it is cos I am in the mode, knowing to lay and be quiet.... whatever it is working.
My eye is a tad sore but not much red. I haven't taken the meds. but will watch it. I actually have been off all meds, except my vitamins and omega 3. I have had some series of twitching or whatevr in my leg but not much, Have had no need for nexium, ( wonder if that is realllllll cutting back on sugar - only thing I had was blueberry muffin and that had 1/2 in 9 so not much) I realize that the cereal even though healthy has it as does any ham slices I ate but I don't add sugar to stuff ever, and haven't had any sweets other than apple and blueberries. so pleased with that. I also went off my arrhtrotec to see, one day so far I have had to take it, but so far not bad, I presume it is a combo of less sugar, better eating and the yoga. whatevr again it is working. I am going to go back on the meds for my leg to see if it bothers my eye but ony up to 2. I will see how I do with the rest of my meds. I so want to be off the nexium.
Okay hope you all have a great day!!!! chose to make it so certainly can help. I am going to get a bit of stuff done before we have to go get dad. Cya enjoy life!!!

Well we are getting ready to pack up and go home a day earlier than planned. I have got to get to a dr and see about my eye. It is better than last night but still red and sore - woke to pain in eye and feels and looks as if there is a film over the red part that I could peel off. hubby says the eyeball looks swollen, so want to get it checked. I am not messing around with my eyes. Slept poorly and so did hubby.
Last night I was so sore, nervous about my eye I went to bed and started crying lol which hurt my eye stung and when I close it tight hurts. He came in and said what are you crying for... led to him laying down rubbing my back which is really sore again, and listening to me go on about how I can't lose wt, stick to anything ect. how my knee, back, hip, foot, now eye are a mess. I am just a mess, failure ect. he said let\s stop this now. I will help you again with weights, upper body so you don't hurt your back. learn so core stuff that we will do to stengthen your belly and back, and ride the bike when you can. STOP eating sugar as to me that is what is bothering you the most. you did gf for 2 months and neither of us saw a diff.
I needed him to listen and react without sarcasm, or malice ( not really the right word but the typical oh you never do what you say ect.) and he did.
So going home and get a dr apt doubt it will be at my clinic but there has to be a walk in somewhere that isn't full.
I am going to stop trying to do everything and do it all perfect. I am going to concentrate on trying hard to eat less processed and less sugar. Hubby is on board this time so that helps. I think his brother losing wt and training for 10 ks is giving hubby a bit of incentive although he would never say so. don't tell him to do something!! he gets really obstinent.
Okay off to pack up the trailer. cya later

Woke up and felt the same as have been, aches pains and my eye hurt. Got up walked the dog, went back to bed and then got up later with dh. We took dog for walk, then I came on here for bit, then put the recliner outside and feel asleep in my jeans and hoodie. Came in went and layed on the bed and slept till 5. Still feeling tired but more so my eye is really hurting a lot. Got hubby to see if it was redder and he said no but your eyeball itself looks swollen. I have been thinking it was a bug bite as I have that one on my forehead, and one in my eyebrow, but they are nearly gone and this is getting worse. So checked my daily notes and my eye started hurting 10 days ago 6 days after taking the new meds, 2 days after going to 2 pills from one. I have since gone to 3. So googled and yes this can cause a type of eye pressure that would be similar to glaucoma but isnt glaucoma. I just was at the eye dr and all is fine so know iut is the pills or bite. I am going to only take 2 today, as they are usually prescribed as an anti depressant, but also for nerve pain, you can't just go down on them. So 2 today, 2 tomorrow and we may go home tomorrow afternoon instsead of tues am. That way I will get to a duty dr sooner if need be.
So we have had supper, taken dog for another walk and cos there are way too many mosquitos out we are in the trailer. It isn't as cold as yesterday but I just don't feel well and don't want more bugs. There are allready a few mosq. in here with us. LOL sure they will find me.
I will be going to bed shortly and it is only 7:50 but am so sleepy. When I was on the lyrica the same thing happened. I was sleeping all day but nothign happened to my eye, although they did get bug eyed and hubby said I looked strange. So I have never had a reaction to meds, but thinkign that whatever he gives me for this nerve pain, is giving me grief.
Today my R knee is locking up, it isn't as sore as the past 2 days but sure hurts when it locks. My hip area is sore and my eye. I am so sick and tired of hurting.
I figured that today I would just never mind my knee and for thet most part I did as i slept lol
Oh well it will all get figured out but want off this med too. If I didn't know myself better, I would blame my downer on it. but I get up and down easily just not like bi polar symptoms.
So a good cup of tea, and knitting or reading or maybe just BE without using my eyes....
HUGS all and the morning will be better!!!
sleep well or good morning depending where you are!!

I couldn't think of a catchy title. LOL I suppose fantastic friday, yea it was a good day, not great, I haven't gotten all my water in yet, over in cals, but did go to legion with dad and hubby. Wasn't going to till ds said he was meeting us there. We so rarely see him I said well I am going too. Had a good visit with him and a nice time. We are going over there for bit tomorrow, I can visit with Thomas, hubby is putting taps on for them, then we are going to go to the harvest festival and then pack up for trailer. We will go sat. afternoon then back by tues afternoon. Next week we won't be going much as taking care of dd dog, dr apt, and yoga.
Well tomorrow will be a great day, I kind of wanted to stay in town for the fireworks, but as hubby said trailer time is winding down cos of the weather and next week is a bust so let's go. I will enjoy the trailer more than 15 mins of fireworks.
Going to the farmers market tomorrow am, and will bring good stuff to the trailer. Small fridge so only fits so much but we have the market just down the road from trailer. no problem.
Well off for now, going to go read and hopefully fall asleep! hugs
