Super start to Sat. and Sept!

Saturday, September 01, 2012

Yesterday was a rotten end to a rotten month. July was rotten mostly $$ wise and finding out that marlo was ill. August I asked for a better month othet than having to put her down. She ended up getting sick faster and we decided to put her down aug 13. Then seems from then on or even before my nerve stuff has gotten worse. Duty drs, more meds, not able to move ( yea that was before marlo cos remember hoping not to step on her lol) and now chiro which I think is helping but the pain after some days OMG last eve was he!!, had to be as I took 1 oxycotin at 8 and another at midnight, went to bed adn was wise awake super awake adn so itchy as I also messed up at the legion and had pizza and ice cream. I am sure it is wheat that makes me itchy as I discovered that last time I ate wheat.
So September, one of my fav months I love end summer start fall weather. it is so nice out and then cooler for sleeping at night. I hope that I don't have many more days as painful as last eve and that I can get back to walking etc. I didn't walk the track the other day but did end up having to walk to dd which is farther and ended up not able to walk back, so took her van, actually going there was about 3 x too far and it isn't too far.
I am concentrating on my diet again this month, yea for wt loss but more to see if it helps the inflammation or whatever is nerve pain, still not having much arthritic pain last night it was a deep pain in my butt and calf as if someone had punched me multiple times and it was hurt not bruised worse. anyway that is over and I am going to get off here and go to the library, have to drive whidh is sad as it is really almost in my back yard. but my butt hip are hurting and I tend to walk crooked and that makes it all worse.
So off to the library and then maybe to chapters.
Hope everyone has a super great start to September and this month is great.I am going to ry all that is in my power to make this a good month!!!

HUGS

Marvelous learning monday

Monday, August 27, 2012

Okay Anjay you should have warned me.................. lol As I hobbled around last eve with my R knee swollen and both aching, I thought has to be the sugar I have eaten the past few days. didn't do anything diff..... Laying in bed this am, thinking okay today is back to square 1. no prednisone in me, and no junk around, back to healthy foods and feeling great. Suddenly something that Anjay wrote just blew into my mind she went with hubby for icecream and she had sorbet cos ice cream can have wheat. Wheat can cause inflammation..... so go to the fridge and look may contain wheat. Why do they need to put wheat in icecream?? SO there I feel vindicated even though I did it to myself I now know why my knees hurt so bad. I am sure of it. Threw the rest away. don't need joint bone pain when I have nerve pain that is still here.

So slept well, woke feeling pretty good lower back is sore but wondering if it is the machine at chiro as it is after chiro that it hurts and they have upped the stretch. Will mention it to him today. Today at lunch time is my chiro.


Well off to get a heatlhy breakfast and start my day. Some nerve pain but so far not too bad.
HUGS all sparkers and hope for me that we move stuff to the shed! LOL


Was telling hubby of my discovery and he said yea and you had that pc of cake fri eve too. So he is now saying oh prob.not the ice cream but the cake - cos we had a bit of a "discussion"
about the cake. I just know that they hurt and now will see if they stop when I get totally back on track today.

    I feel better if I avoid wheat too. My doctor thinks I may be a celiac but accurate testing is expensive and invasive and I don't want it and he doesn't recommend it as food elimination is easier and safer. They put gluten in everything. That's why I try to avoid processed food but it's hard.

Just thinking

Sunday, August 26, 2012

Here I sit, bored, and tired. Reading blogs, checking out motivational primal stuff. Knowing how great I felt when I was eating so healthy. Knowing I can get under 180 again. Also realizing that yes the prednisone is a weight gainer but that I didnt' have to eat as I did. Don't think I really enjoyed any of it. Wondering how much of this sugar is what is making both my knees hurt, they don't really ache arthriticly just hurt.

Today I have not had any nerve pain other than 3 super extreme sharp pain on side of my foot. Once I was at the cash at the hardware store and just leaned down and said OHOHOHN the poor girl are you okay.... hubby was with me and all I said was OMG my foot......... I paid and moved out of the way. I got one later when laying on the couch and again just a few mins ago while sitting here with my foot up on the stool. NO reason no forewarming just OUCH!.

So I am going to be back to eating well tomorrow. I hope I have more energy for it than I do right now. I am saying this but am not "feeling" it no matter how well I felt. I am so tired weary tired. Sure it is the 2.5 wks of such bad pain then the mess of drugs in me. add to that sugar again when not ued to it. I didn't go back to wheat though. had no interest in it. hubby even had cinnamon buns and didn't want them.

I hope to be able to get my mind in gear to ride the bike tomorrow, it is recumbant and not bad for my knees. I wish I could find someone that could give me an exercise routine but physio will only do exercises which I still do.

So right now I am sweaty, bored, tired, and just blah. but hey Ijust thought get off the puter, go do something. So suddenly got that burst, better go fast and move. lol think I will go lift some wts then go to the craft room and semi organize. love organizing.

Okay off to do what I just said and YES I AM GOING TO DO IT!!!

HUGs and cya later

    I watched a local alternative doctor this morning - one of a handful in this region - who stated that sugar is the key to most medical problems and I tend to agree.

Sensational Sunday so I say! lol

Sunday, August 26, 2012

Good monring sparker buddies!
Well I slept well, woke with a bit of pins and needles but that I can handle. Very annoying and bothersome and it hurts but at least I am not laying on the bed, floor trying to find a way to get rid of that excrutiating pain of last week.

I am finished the darn prednisone and so glad. As the dr said, and Iknew it makes you hungry. For the first few days I was able to eat a little but then the hunger monster took over. So yea some of the extra wt. is from that but some is from just not making good choices and seeming unable to stop. ( that probably isn't true but sure felt like it.) so starting tomorrow I am back on the straight and narrow which lately hasn't felt like that as I had eaten well enough and didn't have any wheat or sugar cravings. Ask me now how close a friend sugar is- didn't take long. As for wheat only 1 time I ate and that was out and pc of cake.

Not sure what is on the agenda today, hubby wants to go out for breakfast but I allready know I will have an omlete with no toast please, and water. If we do no shed stuff or reno( cos it is the weekend guys!) then I am going to get some of the windows washed. The tracks could use a good cleaning. Supposed to be warm and sunny. I also may go finish lopping the tree I was cutting down yesterday. I stopped before I started hurting and iced for while. Sure is brighter on the deck with that tree gone. Want to replace with something smaller next spring.
Allrighty.......... I am going to go check my email and then will be time for hubby to wake. It was after 2:30 when he came to bed. don't know how he does it.
have a super day all, make wise choices. and remember as my friend BEMORESTUBBORN says
WHAT CAN YOU DO TODAY TO MAKE YOUR TOMORROW A BETTER, HEALTHIER DAY FOR YOU??
HUGS emoticon

Sunny Sat

Saturday, August 25, 2012

Such a great day, but you can almost feel fall in the air. I love fall, my fav. season but so don't want to see winter. But then the alternative is to move where there is no winter - that isn't going to happen o die. well hoping that too won't happen! LOL
Had a hard night for an hr or so, had to get up and bring the ice pack to bed. Wondering if last week when this happened was after a chiro apt. I am icing my back now. but last night was my butt and calf big time nerve pain. Ice seemed to relax it enough for me to fall asleep.
Dd and hubby are gone away to a family reunnion on his mothers side. He doesn't see this side much as his mum died when he was 20. he is 37. hope she has a good time today and can relax for while.
Not much more new, for now. going to get off here, get ready for the day. HUGS and hope you all have a super great day!

    I hate winter too and fantasize about living where there is no winter. But a lot of those places have horrendous summers. You can't win.

I think it's good that your dad is so agreeable to a living arrangement that is in his best interests. You are sacrificing a lot and working hard to give him a good life and it sounds like he appreciates it.

Sounds like this will be good for your daughter.

    Sure do miss those wonderful PA autumns since I moved South--don't miss those PA winters though. Take care of yourself and enjoy the weather while you can.

    I hear you on loving Autumn! In Michigan we have super vibrant colors because of the affect of the Great Lakes. I cannot wait! I actually don't mind November here and when December comes, I'm so wrapped up in Christmas that I love the snow. It's when mid-January hits that I start to "fidget!"

March Madness is more than basketball in the U.S. lol For me I am going nuts and am so happy when April rolls around.

So, so, so sad about your back and all that pain. My daughter is going through epidural shots for pain management until she can get her surgery done (don't know when that will be, yet).

Thanks for blogging so that I could feel I'm catching up. I blogged today about how we had to have our cat put to sleep this week. AWFUL!!
