Tuesday, September 27, 2011

HI there sparkers! I am back with my spark lit and ready to glow!
Today walked the dog a fair bit farther, not sure on exact time cos near the house we stopped to chat with a neighbour I haven't seen all summer. Went to seniors yoga which is still a workout, just takes some of them longer to get into position. lol About 1/3 of way through my back un hurt lol felt so great, then continued on and stretched even better.
Picked dad up on way home, stopped got hubby and we went to drugstore with him and got a raised toilet seat and gave the not that has to go in to see if he can get a thing that lowers you into the water for a bath. Great contraption so hope he gets it.
Home had a colourful and healhty plate with 2/3 veggies. yes veggies i like but still good ones.
This eve is biggest loser and I will ride the bike for some and then yoga stretches for some.
Weather is super fantastic today loving it. Tomorrow more of the same, I will go hold the can of paint for son in law while he paints 2 windows. Then hubby and i are back at the other half fo the deck. Have to get that done soon while the weather holds.
Going to be a great day tomorrow too.

-drank my water
-yoga mind and body ahhhhhhhh
- reading healing circle awesome book for anyone with cancer or chronic pain or that is interested in yoga, mediation it is really good
-green tea

Mixed bag Monday

Monday, September 26, 2011

Well I have't gotten all my water in yet and is 9pm. darn we wern't home and waas busy so didn't even think of it.
Otherwise a pretty good day. Not a lot going on, we went to dd and I helped her a bit and hubby put in new programable thermostats and her hubby scraped and painted trim on outside of windows.
Before we left we heard all this noise, we live beside a path that goes from high school and community center then a few blocks on other side of path another rival high school. Gang of kids were walking back to school being silly so we thought 2 guys acting silly pretending to fight and we could tell was fun. Suddenly this one girl yelled at another theyg rabbed each others hair, then the one just YANKED her hard and she fell in teh middle of the road, that other started kicking her hard, all over head, belly everywhere, the kids about 15 or so were all watching and had their phones out, hubby grabbed our phone called 911 then she stopped and yelled went over kicked her again and then walked back the way she came, i went ot the back door and didn't see her so she had to be on the side of the path. the other girl got up, some walked with her, and then the one that started it started to follow, cops called later and said they didnt catch anyone or see anything, hubby was goign to go out and stop it and then I said call first cos there are about 20 kids and they will gang on you and then the girl got up and started walking, She will be some sore tomorrow. Hubby said if the cops hadn't kept talking to him and they said don't go out. we are near by.
hubby was bullied as a kid and HATES it so he was ready to go out and do them all in. buggers

I sorted my posters out and put some up on the walls in the basement to make it more motivating to exercise. also going to sort out the ones from magazines and put them up on the bulletin board for easy access and to remember I have them.
Okay now to go get the clothes out of the dryer.
OH!! how did I forget.
I got a call today. was from one of my clients, she has been bugging work for my phone number, they can't give it to her. so one of my friends was at her place and called me to see if she could have my number. So my little lady called to day so glad to know I was okay enough. I was touched she is a cute little irish never married but bet she could cause enough rucus such a character.

So what did I do today to make my tomorrow better?
-not enough to feel great about my day
- did have salad with chicken for lunch
- not enough water
-didn't walk dog
- did help dd with some of her housework
- reading the healing cirlce what an awesome book
-talked with hubby about breast cancer ect. cos someone on ellen had it and we were talking about me and march
- made a plan for tomorrow - yoga - water - good food-time with dad

okay sparkers gotta get a stronger spark going again!!
hugs all

    It's frightening how bullying has escalated in schools these days; over here some schools "scan" the pupils daily for knives.

Too true to be careful when helping, a crowd of youngsters can turn ugly...isn't sad to say that. At one time you thought nothing of going to someone's aid emoticon

Nice of that lady to check on you Cinders

Have a good Tuesday emoticon

    Nice that your client made the effort to track you down & see how you're doing! Since you've been really working hard to create a positive attitude in your life, I thought you'd be as inspired as I was by my sparkfriends blog:

Super sensational Sunday

Sunday, September 25, 2011

In every way but I went way over my cals. otherwise a super day. We got up and walked dog, then sil texted are you at your trailer, if so you can come visit here or Susan ( another sil over from PEI) will go to you. We were getting ready to leave so said we will come to you. So had a great visit and a nice lunch. Got home and nothing for supper so hubby had OMG hungryman dinners and said why not hvae this. Okay it is super hot today !!! and we are tired. OMG 700 cals and I won't even tell you the amt of fat and sugar. Thank the lord we have them once in a blue blue moon. Anyway it is still 81 or 30 in my kitchen and I have no dishes to do but whew. full!!!!
Then dd called she had bought coupon for a meal out but it is expiring and they both ahve to work eves. so would we like it and a free supper out. Geesh use by wednesday or we will give it to some one else. So we are checking the menu as there is lots hubby can't eat.
Weather wise it was hotter today than a lot of the summer. We are having our indian summer weather and it is fantastic. love it while it lasts cos then it will be fall /winter.
So back home for while, logged all my food again. Back on track, interesting how severe pain can make me so down...

What did I do today to make my tomorrow a better day?
- lol vow to not agree for hubby to buy those crazy froz. dinners
-walked dog
- logged food
- good company
- drank my water
- knowing I am back on track and tomorrow is a brand new day

Not eager to see the scale but will be right back at it and going to try my darndest to get moving a bit more when able.
HUGS all and thanks for keeping me going again!

Editing to say after reading Joys blog JOYINKY about walking around her house, I no longer have any excuse as my house is built on 3 levels and all 3 are able to go around. so upstairs I take 28 steps to do the loop. main floor 24 and lower is too untidy to walk it. lol so know that I walked it and counted my steps, no matter what the ped. says I can add up the number of times and put in my steps.
Knew you were doing it Joy but now I know I can too. Certainly good for me who is afraid of the ice after messing my knee when falling.

Cya HUGs again!

Enjoy your meal out; hopefully they'll have something healthy emoticon

    Great idea for walking in bad weather. My mom did it all the time, while she was living with me. One day of too much food will not make a big difference. Just keep in mind that eating out and the frozen meal probably had more salt than you usually use. So don't weigh yourself for a couple of days until it works its way out of your system. emoticon

    I ate crap today too. Blaming it on hubby... he shouldn't have let me twist his arm! lol Ah well. I'm resolved to make better choices tomorrow. Love to see your good humour coming back.

    Oh well--that was your splurge for now. Go out to dinner with the coupon and get something you can eat--even if it's just salad. It's free and you don't have to cook.

Soggy Saturday!

Saturday, September 24, 2011

Didn't wake till nearly 9 which is super late for me, and I went to be early too. Maybe the country weather, the tiredness of the past 2 days. Who knows who cares I slept long and well so that's what counts.
Woke and took dog for walk, came back and had my breakfast and read then went and laid down, hubby rubbed my back and I totally relaxed. Later on I got pain in my lower back and then sciatica which I haven't had even though the dr said he thought that was it. Went away when I got hubby to really rub hard on my butt lol what would I do without him LOL
Up now, he got the net working, low clouds and rain are giving us an even worse signal but am here for now.
Yesterday I didn't log my food ect. didn't even think of it, and the net was bad so only went on for few mins last eve. Anyway will try to remember and do it now. I want to keep it up. I also have to drink all my water today. I also need to keep that up. One thing that I have to keep better reign of is my carb intake, yes am less on sugar but we bought some awesome baguette bread at the market and oh it is calling my name! LOL
So pouring rain here and in the trailer, I am planning to do some band stuff and maybe try some yoga not sure what on that cos not getting on my knees yet. They are doing beetter but not chancing it. Thinking that the wet weather coming may have been some of my knees but if so then that is the worst they have been.
Allright........ What can I do today to make my tomorrow a better day for me?
-walk dog ( given at the trailer)
-drink my water
- make a salad!!! NOW
-watch my carb intake
-do band exercises
-think positive
- get backrub when needed LOL
-try to keep headache at bay
-know that all you guys are all sticking by me!

okay going to track my food from yesterday, and today. making a salad too.

cya hugs!!

Frustrated Friday!

Friday, September 23, 2011

HI Sparkers.... well mixed bag here today. We are at the trailer and it is muggy. I am not having as much pain with my knee today but I am really blah, near tears, just oh I dont know what. I am wondering if it is the starting the pills again as this is the 3rd night with 2 and they are an anitdepressant used also for nerve pain. So as I know with hubbys many anitdepressants, they can cause depression............. dumb and all. but yea. so maybe that is it and once I get enough in me I will feel better.
I am having a hard time caring what I eat or why. I just dont care right now. Hubby is doing his best, listening to me, ect and one great thing my gf who I have called 3x and she is never home, called me back so we chatted for an hr before we left for the trailer. I am saying to myself this too passes, and it may be gone soon and then I will be fine and keep thinking positive and eating right cos you wont be happy withyourself after. So for supper hamburgers but salad no buns for me. I will be fine.
I think a lot of it is I HATE taking pills and have realized I need something for my arthritis and my leg well if I donèt do what my dr wants then is he going to keep helping me and who knows then about work. so right now I kind of have to keep in line. We are really watching my eye and any pain I get in it. I have kept a great log of it all.
So what have I done today to make my tomorrow a better one
- I got up and didnt wallow in bed
- Ate a good breakfast
- will be walking dog around campground
-talked to Sue and hubby

short but still some! I am determined to get that upbeat happy ME back. I will not let these meds and moods determine all that I do. Hard as I am an emotional eater and the fact that I have only lost 3 lbs in 10 days yea I know that is great, but I want to be 189. argh number is only a number as I keep tellling another friend.
Okay no sad wallow, off we go for a walk with dog around the trailer park.
cya when I can depending on net service. and will get my frenchè keyboard off again! lol I donèt know what I hit to make it come but it is frustrating too.
hugs all!!!

    Happy thoughts coming your way. I am fighting exhaustion and too much committed to do for church this weekend. Also, there is less and less "day"time, which can be a problem for some of us.

    Don't feel bad about having a rough day. You've been doing really great with looking for the positive & I know you'll be back feeling that way again soon. Good job keeping up with your list even when your motivation is low - this is how we change. Sure hope you're able to figure out the meds soon.

    I was wondering about the odd words!

I agree with Caz, you are doing a great job! I am proud that you lost 3 pounds!


I hope that you and your doctor can find a better pill for you.

    Do you know what Cinders! You have done an awesome job keeping on track, getting your walks in, losing 3 lb in 10 days, making some positive blogs.
It's gotta be the meds and the pain getting you down- totally understand and sympatize hun, TOTALLY!
Get yourself back to your doc and tell him you're having these depressions with the meds, there'll be others that suit you better, it doesn't have to be like this!
You know I'm in your corner and you know I'm telling you as a friend that I can see you're making progress, you will make it.
Make arrangements to get the meds changed Cinders. I'm off to bed now, but I'll check by in the morning.
Take care babes, this is just a bump in the road, okay?!

    I recently started Paxil to get some chronic anxiety under control, and it was horrible. The side effects were more than I could tough out after one week. So my doctor changed to Cipralex and so far, so good. Yes, sometimes it can get worse before it gets better. I do know that "care about nothing" feeling you're talking about, but it should pass fairly soon. Hope you feel better and that you enjoy this (muggy!) weekend. :)

    I know you and I are both not famous at taking drugs and I think part of it is we have seen what side effects medications can have. Making it even harder to swallow. Yes, your doctor will still treat you if you have reason to belief that the medications you are taking have side effects. He will find an alternative. Remember there are more than one drug in this world to treat your condition. Now, for my next story! You are moving forward, and taking steps to be healthy and fit. Don't beat yourself up. Remember "slow and steady" wins the race. You will see 189, and it may not be today but, maybe tomorrow but, we are making steps. I have to go and workout it is my time. I am off the weekend. I will catch up with you. I will look for you all weekend. Make plans because I will be asking you! Nice warning, huh! love ya

    hey I totally understand the frustrations of being in pain adn needing medication that puts you in those moods.and you are doing a great job, I know it may be hard to realize but you are still pushing forward. everyone has rough weeks now and then and your weightloss will be slow but steady. try not to be too hard on yourself. Good luck with your pain and your mood!
