One hand vs the other hand lol

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

I got this little timely reminder from LADYBUD2 spark page.... how much more visual, factual do I have to see to get my butt in gear!!!

And my OTHER hand lol ( my status said my other hand won and I am going to go to yoga) has lost. Yoga for this am, was cancelled. she has a sick child and only 3 of us were signed up. She sent us a video to do and even mentioned no forward flexion Cindy! LOL so will see how I fare, and am going up to my craft room, where I have a mat and my yoga mat, candles etc and do some relaxing poses anyway.

Today is the day we have our apointment with the buddy about the modular home that is nearer the city. I am so anxious that it will be way out of our price line but am excited cos maybe it won't be. Oh well whatever will be- we have other options.

Okay this am, now that I am going to be home, will consist of my me- yoga time, some laundry and perhaps a run to the store. Right now the dog wants in!

cya later buddies hugs

    OMG, what a powerful picture that is!!! All true.

That gives me an idea.....I would like to take a picture of a slim, fit woman and type in all of the benefits; then put them side-by-side on my workout room wall! Thanks for posting this Cindy.

    Not sure if ELRIDDICK got the same pic as now is up there, when I hit post it came up with a really pretty pic of a tree. Since you don't have a page I can't let you know.

Anyway that pic has really done a visual even though I know all that and seen that in myself and many people I have cared for... just shows it has to be done!!! HUGS

well dd was sad, her fancy shower thingy, only works for a shower stall so there goes 240$ but then she was happy.... she can at a later date, ( lol when dad forgets all the work of this bathroom) renovate her downstairs which is only a shower stall and use it there, but in the meantime has to buy a new shower head, taps for this one.
So we didnt'get a lot done in the bathroom, I cleaned some of her house and visited with her friend who showed up to visit dd.Her friend was her bridesmaid and she is so sweet a very nice girl with a level head. I hope she comes to spark as she wants to lose wt. So we all had a chat then she left to get her son, we left to go find a new shower head. We also did a bit of shopping so omg my feet were aching again as were my knees. But she found one that is a bit too $$ and one she likes almost as well that is 100 less. going to show her hubby and decide.
Not alot more new, going to rest soon and think will try to soak in the tub tonight. My bed is calling me! not sure about yoga tomorrow as my knees are still really sore. I will probably go and not worry about doing anything on my knees, she will show me variations.
HUGS all
off to rest. I am so beat.

    I know that feeling. To much time on my feet murders me. My left is so bad, the knee is getting worse handling the strain. I've already had surgery on that knee. So afraid of getting hurt.
I could never soak in the tub and know for sure I wouldn't get hurt getting out. I have a built in seat in the garden tub but it's still hard getting in and out.
I just ordered a new shower head from QVC. Wish me luck. Should be heavenly with a massage setting. Be careful my friend. A soak sounds great but comes with dangers.
The last of the warm sunny weather had me outside doing Tai Chi in the garden. Then the rain came and the wind picked up and it's cold now. And I hurt more if that's even possible.
Take it easy and rest those knees and feet. Use some nice rub on them.
Hugs, Hope

Sunny Sunday

Sunday, November 27, 2011

Well this am I am chosing to be optimistic, even though I am not walking well. My knee is acting up big time probably from falling on Thurs. It has very little flexion but it will get better if I watch myself for a few days. Thought oh man I can't even walk, but hey I can do some upper strength stuff!!! WOW
I have a new idea that I am going to try out. One is make a few ideas of things to do when I start the boredom eating or wandering around house. I will put in knit a few rows, tidy bookcase in craft room, do load of laundry, go through house ideas book etc. and put in a small flower pot -draw one out and do it for a while. I have lots of ideas. I can even incorperate do a joyinky walk, do 10 wall pushups, etc.
I also am going to try to take some meal plans and make some breakfast ideas, some lunch ideas and supper and then just have them all separate with the cal amount on them. Choose what I want and then if the cals are allowed I can use that one for the day, at least then I have some ideas for meals. May be a bit harder fur supper if I have beef out thawing or fish ect. but still can work.
I also want to make some workouts, I have a few dvds, but not any that are just strenght training. I wish I knew of a good one for that.... any ideas anyone?? but do have magazine articles ect. and can use them A few months ago I made my bullitin board up with all my cut outs together but alas haven't been down to use them.
Well this 5% challenge is going to make me do it, I have got to get some wt off these poor kneees and back. So thankful it is only 50 lbs although it is a huge amt for me, I so know it is doable.
Okay if I am going to get some of this done, better get off here, We are going to lisas later to see if he can't figure the plumbing issue. even the snake isnt' working and pretty ssure neither mur nor mike want to go on the roof to check the vent line! eeek.

hugs all

  Congratulations for opening up your mind to the possibilities for solutions to your issues. On Sparkpeople there are a couple of teams for CHAIR EXERCISES that might help you. Doing your crafts instead of "mindless eating" is a great plan too. It sounds like you are really on the right track. Blessings emoticon

    I love your boredom idea. As a gardener, something like a clay pot all prettied up and full of ideas would really motivate me! Hope you get well soon!

    Have you checked out the SP exercise videos on-line or the SP workout generator? On "MY FITNESS" page, look just under the Strength Training title & you will see a link that says: Click here to let SparkPeople generate your workouts. There you can specify how long, what equipment (if any) & what body parts you want to focus on.

Having an alternate list of things to do instead of snacking is a great idea. A lot of time snacking is just habit & you can break it by not caving to the craving.

    Sounds like a good start Cindy! My fitness minutes have suffered this family focused weekend! But, been busy and had fun. I love the idea of adding wall pushups to the inside walking; I really need to incorporate more upper body strength training as I'm not getting to the gym like I used to. Enjoy your day! Hugs.

Reminder to self!!!

Saturday, November 26, 2011

I was thinking I am doing the pre challenge work with the mind set that this is just another thing and not really getting into the plan of things. IE changing things that haven't worked for the past 30 years!!! OMG I have to get a diff way of eating and keep at it. that is my biggest issue. I know the exercise can be done on the days my body will cooperate and that is most days. I am anxious to get the brace for my knee, so I can walk with out such pain and my knee twisting.
SO I have 3 healthy cookbooks sitting on my table, I have spark recipes, I have other ones in my favs. I just have to learn to eat some of this stuff and take the time to do it. Also help if we are home at all but once dd bathroom is done that will be better. I feel bad for her, as she wanted it done long ago and hubby is taking so long, one obstacle to another it seems and he does know what he is doing. well nto this new fangled shower thing she bought with chinese instructions................ oh well he will figure it out.
Okay finished supper back to dd for a bit, I am not painting till tomorrow....... cya hugs all.

  Thank you. I need the reminder - Stop saying can't. - It may not be easy but it is going to be worth it. I will repeat that again and again when I need it, which is always.

    If we want to change our life, then we must CHANGE our life - do what we haven't, do what we don't like to do, what feels uncomfortable & unfamiliar. You're smart to take things back to the beginning & really, truly follow the steps. You've come so far already with your thinking & now it's time to just do it.

Tired this evening

Friday, November 25, 2011

Well I am tired tonight, but had a bug of some sort cos had a few bouts of running to bathroom and back. After about 4 times in half hr I felt better.
Went for a brace fitting and cost estimate to send to insurance to see if they will pay. $1,754.96 omg. and cos it is custom they will not order it till it is paid for. I presume insurance will pay but I will probablly hae to buy and send in the receipts. Times like this are for credit cards..... eeeek. I got a light mauve she called it. does go under my jeans etc. but not when it is summer so figured why a black one. Explained how they work etc. 5 year warranty and I said when I lose wt can it be adjusted, yes to a degree then if it tooo big we send it back, but only till 5 years then you would have to buy a new one, and your insurance will only buy one a lifetime. so lose by 5 years lol
Then picked up dd, who was off today, went to 2 stores, then picked up dad and took him to legion. He got birthday cake and all the ones there sang - he enjoys that. Me I hate that stuff. no attention to me. he is so quiet it is funny he likes that part. then we went home after dinner, I dropped dad off, hubby off and dd and I wen tto find curtains for her newly painted room. Found some, stopped at her house to see if they looked nice and then I came home. I am now caught up on email and going to go to bed. it is 10:30 and I am beat. Tomorrow as long as hubby can do it, he will work on dd bathroom, his back is still sore from lifting me.

Okay off to bed, night all HUGS
