Well the dog woke me again, this is new for her and not sure I like it lol!
So got myself out of bed, went to stand and CLICK went my knee OMG what a strange and painful feeling that is. Anyway I hobbled down the 2 sets of stairs while she waited and watched. Then came up to main floor and sat looking at the tree, debating if I want to take it down today. I like it all back to normal by new years day. We will have company, Sat sometime as my sister in law said she was coming over for my bday. Said you do not have to start bday presents just cos we both got something for sil bday yesterday.
I am so ready to start this journey, I said to hubby I am going to try hard to do more veggies WHAT vegetarian you read WAYYYYYY too much. lol anyway even getting more veggies in will be a good start for me. I am re reading crazy sexy diet and she is so funny but makes sense. Now I know I feel the paleo diet makes sense cos I do believe that it is the processed stuff and chemicals on things that are causing a lot of issues. but have to find more out about the acid vs alkaline debate that she mentions in her book. So think I will try more veggies and maybe 4 days a week eating meat to start. I have a hard time thinking what to make if I don't have a meat in the meal at lunch or supper. Found a good vegetarian chili on spark. DD will like this as then there will be food fdor her. lol
Okay big plan change for this am. no walking outside, hubby won't let me for one thing cos it is a bit of snow down on slippery stuff from light rain snow overnight. So will do my joyinky for 10 min intervals and see how many I can get in today. Back to taking 2 of my arthrotec daily and a nexium every am, for a week to see if I can't get this knee a bit better so I can move by new years!
Today finish dd tub for hubby, I will tidy up her house some so they can come back to a nice tidy house. He isn't going to do the trim around bathroom window till they decide on white or buy oak to match rest of house. They are getting new windows in all other rooms next summer, so do they want to spend to get oak trim or go with the white.
Hope you all have a great day. I am feeling on top of the world even with this darn ole knee. Have a super sunny day at least in your heart if not outside where you live!
Oh I think I mentioned in my blog yesterday about getting a monthly pass for a year for yoga, but rethought it cos during the summer we are gone to the trailer for 2 -3 wks and not worth it for missing 5 months. so will do the buy 10 get 10 half price so 20 classes if I go weekly will last a while.
Okay off for now! joyinky here I come. hey Joy wish I could do it with you!

LOLO and no it isn't cos I am stuffed. I always get dressed as soon as I get up, and don't undress till I go to bed. My dd says why don't you change into comfy pants instead of jeans etc. so she got me a pair of really comfy jersy type pants, could almost be yoga pants. This am, I got up and thought may as well put them on, have to have shower later.... got home from sisterinlaws hmmm put my nighty and comfy pants on. lol
Had a good time visiting, but mil was sick on the way here, and she slept for the most part. Started a new med for pneumonia and she vomited while they were on the way from PEI to NS. But we all had a great vist and she must have been ill and tired to sleep with all the laughing and noise we were making.
Ate little and well and not hungry now.
My yoga studio, has decided that yoga is getting to expensive and an exclusive thing here in the city so she lowered her prices by 25% so if you sign for a year it is 69$ for as many classes as you want. as long as I do 5 amonth that is a good buy. I for sure do 4 as i go to the back care and was going sunday am so will think on starting it up again. She also has a restorative one and maybe that bender ball one. So we figure we can afford it as long as I know I will use it. you do have to sign for a year. So will go up there in am, to be one of the first to sign as you get another deal.
Well not much more, goign to go read some more, and go to bed, it is only 9 so may just sit down here for while cos if I go to lay down that long will be sore by 4 am.
HUGS and hope you all had a good day. and hey gave away most of the sweets! I am going to be ready for Jan 1. and am not getting drunk on my bday which dd thinks would be funny haha.
cya in the am, sparkers.

While I try not to worry about dd and hubby driving in the bad weather I started thinking, some deep thinking for a Christmas eve, but hey why not. Hubby is "in line" on line to shop for his Christmas present on boxing day sales when it isn't even Christmas - to me that is nuts, start your sales on the right day but greed...........
I have been thinking about this weight I have to get off. aporx 50 lbs and may as well be 250 cos don't seem to get with it.
So been thinking and talking to myself ala dr phil and few others. Such as hows whatcha doin workin for ya... oh it isn't well what are you going to do diff....
if you want change you have to change.
if you always do what you always did, you always get what you got...
you all get my drift!
So been really trying to figure what is going to change Jan 1 just cos the calendar changes, and I get a year older LOL.
Well if I am not willing to change how I do things, how I think of things, then why do I expect this weight to fall off me?? Unless I get ill very ill I won't lose this, I remember when mum was first diagnosed, she said geesh great I am losing wt and I thought yea I know why you are losing cos you are starting to get sick...... I have so many stupid health issues that some could be stopped or helped with diet and exericise. I don't mean "diet" as in wt loss, but as in proper food, healthy clean fresh food.
So really thinking what will I change, how fast am I willing to try to make these changes so they become habit not just hey eat this for while and lose, gain it back do it again... been there done that have some friends doing the soup thing right now..
If I am going to really change habits then has to be done in a way that I will do this and incoperate it into my daily routine.
Any ideas, any really truthful thoughts on what are you going to do diff. A very special spark friend asked me to think daily - what can I do today to make my tomorrow a healthier better day for me... that worked till I started forgetting to ask myself that.
So one thing is to remember to ask myself that, will print it out in big letters...
another will be to take the time to do a 30 mins back care yoga daily... along with some quiet meditation. I enjoy it, feel better after so why do I stop doing it?
I will ensure that I get at least 3 veggies a day and 2 fruit, that is my starting point as that is a downfall for me.
and most of all and hardest for many is to look in the mirror less harshly, less critical and always smile at the person looking back at me... cos you know if you don't love yourself, then why should anyone else bother to love you.
HUGS and would love to know what you plan to truthfully incorperate in the new year that will help you get to your goals and MAINTAIN them!!!
HUGS and Merry Christmas!!!
