A week has flown by Jan 29th!

Friday, January 29, 2010

Last time I wrote little Thomas was just born. He has done well, lost and gained back to his birth weight, more alert etc. Mum and dad are doing really great, very natural with him and not nervous. They were over for a few mins yesterday and dad came over too. I had to get to the gym, they had Thomas' weigh in again so was a short but sweet visit. He got passed to all the arms and then they left.
On the spark front, I am doing very well, I have a spark going on my exercise and doing well onmy food. Food wise is only been 4 days great, but hey am down in weight. I will weigh on sunday for end of month but hopped on this am just to see, and am 192.6 so very pleased.
Still at physio daily till Feb 4th. I am making a plan to keep my exercise going so that is why I have been super diligent about it every am. Still getting up at 5. So far so good. Going to sit this weekend to plan what to do for more ex. than the few mins at 5. For sure every tues. when I watch Biggest loser I do 30 mins on bike then weights and if i am wanting to another 30 mins usually on days i dont have to be up at 5.
So life has been good these past few weeks. Dd hasnt yet decided on a wedding dress and for some reason isnt returning my calls when asked. Think she may not be checking her phone cos no other reason.
Ds 32 nd birthday is Feb 1. and we will have family over sunday afternoon to get together. I will have 1 pc of cake with some whip and just the reg meal. Cake will be homemade apple bundt cake.
Okay gotta go get ready to leave as it snowed overnight - have to clean off the car. thankfully not enough to shovel as I still not allowed to do that.
cya hope all my buddies are doing well too. Sorry to be so scarce!

    New babies are so exciting.
i am glad that you have a spark streak of exercise going on. I should ride the bike while watching the biggest loser.
Hmm, maybe I will work on that this week.

    Way to go with the weight loss and following your exercise goals. I knew you could do it! Keep up the beat! Glad to hear Thomas is doing well and has gained back his weight. Have a great weekend. Enjoy your piece of cake, remember that one piece is not going to hurt you!

    So glad to hear all the good news emoticon on the weight loss.
Sounds like you're planning a good exercise program which will keep you supple.
Birthday wishes to DS for 2/1.

    Good morning!

When my physical therapy ended, I got a personal trainer to keep me motivated and keep my exercise productive. I intended to only do a 10 week package but have kept on since August. It's better than physical therapy -- she knows how to work every muscle just enough but not too much! I am walking better than I have for 20 years. A miracle ....

Have an extraordinary day!

Oh my baby Thomas arrived 2 days early. He was born today 12:16 pm and is 6lbs 10 oz and 20 inches long. he is soooo tiny to me. Mum had to have a emerg C section, cos he was totally breech. Even after his bath he put his feet right up to his ears. looks like he ended at his butt. lol they will come down soon.
Anyway having a cup of tea, then going to go to bed - 5 am is early and the excitment has me tired.
be back soon.

OH the pain

Wednesday, November 04, 2009

Well I hurt more tonight than when I hurt my back. I went to physio and it took 2 hrs for them to show me and do all my routine!!!!! sorry but i havent been doing wts in years faithfully and they want me to do 10 reps 3x of 3 diff exercises, ball ex. leg ones, core, etc. ect then do the return to work stuff, ie push a chair etc. well i tried my dammdest and can barely move. Dh is angry cos said they are on a mission to make yuou get back to work asap. so dont let them do that much to you. woman you dont work out and you are nearly 53. Had you been working out more than slowly walking a dog yea but not at my intensity. my back is so sore, my neck aches, my shoulders. etc.
granted someone said oh you are having a reaction to the H1N1 cos some woman became crooked walking from it. well whatevr it is better get better. I kneow i would be sore for physio but man not this bad.
so it is just 8:30 taking tylenol ( hope it is okay with h1n1) and going to bed.

    Oh dear Cinders, I would have though physiotherapists would know what they were doing.
Sounds like they were expecting a little too much, or were they just repeating the routine for you to get a sound idea of what needed I wonder.
Either way I'd be inclined to have words and tell them how sore you are today and that they pushed you too hard. Maybe they can tone it down and then increase as you get better and stronger.
Feel for you hun, hope the soreness goes and that eventually it does you some good, you so need to get that back of yours better
Luv ya

    Hope your soreness is greatly improved very soon. Sounds as if they are giving you a lot of exercises all at once instead of building up your program gradually. Good luck with getting good results.

Hugs, Gaylinn

    It could be a reaction to the shot (some people I've heard react to it) but I would mention it to your physiotherapist that you are so sore. Ask them if they think it is a reaction to the shot or to the intensity of the therapy. Hope you feel better tomorrow :)

Trying hard to get that exercise down pat....

Thursday, October 29, 2009

I am still struggling with my on exercise from physio which all the others depend on for good form. It is the one that squeezes that small tiny muscle in the belly that wraps around the back to keep it stable. One thing I dont have for sure is strong core, so doing all my physio ex. faithfully albeit frustratingly. LOL
I had to argue with work to allow me to go to work this am, instead of at 3 so I can go to pysio. This is foolish and a redundant argument cos I am not even considered on the schedule cos of being 4 hr light duties, so what does it matter if I am there as long as in that 8 hr set part I am there for 4 hrs. anyway she said do what i want.... oh well I want to come this am, instead so I can get my physio this afternoon. Iwasnt able to get a diff apt.
So have heard a lot of good from some friends here and at work about the BL wii dvd. I think I will check it out.LOL
Best get myself moving around as nearly time to go to work.After kicking up a stink to go this morning I better go! LOL

What a day yesterday was! I woke up and thought get this house cleaned. Dh does very little to help me and I work full time. Granted I am the one that leaves things laying around more than he but still.
So started a bit, then felt my strange depression coming. I think I have written about that before. I dont think that I get depressed that often but when I do, I can actually feel it like a blanket coming over me. Sort of wraps me in it. Felt that coming said to dh, lets just go to our land today. we own 3 acres of wooded land about an hr or so away. Packed a picnic and off we went. Had a good time, but still didnt feel great inside. I am really missing mum a lot and think that my grieving is starting. I know I haven't done much of that probably cos I wouldnt allow myself to with the new job and keeping things on an even keel.
Anyway we went, had a good time and came home. Made supper and then I had a chocking spell, I dont cough. something feels or does get stuck in my pipe and i cant breath or drink. It hurts bad. All I do is produce bubbles in my mouth that I have to spit. so this continued for afew mins, then dh came down to the bathroom with water drink... omg the pain with a tiny sip of water. but it eventually brought up whatevr it was.
Then I started crying, man i cried and he said he was thinking bet she wants her mum. I lookd up off his shoulder said oh i want my mum and bawled. he just held me.
I got over that and came on here, and lo and behold mama grizz was here. Thank god for her as she listened, chatted and kept me focused and cared. Made me promise to take care of me. I allready know that is super hard and will take forever to even get started.
THANKS again dear friend.
So woke this morning, after a mostly painfree night, and walked the dog farther than we have in long while. Now today will be groceries and housework. I will some how take time for me. Later I will go walk again. IF the rain holds off, we will or I will go to the beach. between 11 and 2 we have someone coming to give us an estimate on the driveway widen and re pave it.
okay rambling now. gotta go get some breakfast. cya
and hugs to all but just a great big smile for mama grizz! LOL she will know why!

    And a great big smile right back at ya! It was a tough day for you yesterday but that's ok, it's normal and you got through it. I'm very glad you went for your walk already today :) and that you are going to get out and about later as well. Hopefully you'll make those few detours we were talking about yesterday :) and have some fun discovering a new passion.

    As a person who struggles with depression a lot, I know how it feels and how hard it is to shake it. Allowing yourself to feel it and grieve for your mother is good for you. You also did such a great job dealing with it - going to your land for a nice picnic, having a good cry, going on SP for support. You were taking care of yourself all along and I know you are a strong person.

I often get things caught in my throat too (another similiarity!). In fact, when we were on vacation we went to a Mexican restaurant. I was eating those chips and salsa before the waiter had brought the water and a chip got stuck right in the middle of my throat!! What pain! DH went and got the waiter to bring water immediately. I still had a sore throat for an entire day afterwards.

Wishing you better days ahead and happiness. Hugs, Mary

    Keep on pushing, you can do it! One idea for today. Let DH deal with the driveway people. I understand about pain, I have fibromyalgia. I am so sorry about your Mum. I can only imagine. Here is a great big hug from Minnesota.
