The 3 Cís of life: Choice, Chance, Change. YOU must make the Choice to take the Chance if you want anything to Change.
Saw this on the board at the physical therapy place I went for my functional assesment and I read it and thought, WOW how totally true. and then add to it, what do you want to change and how much of a chance are you willing to take with this choice.
I say I want to eat healthy, well that is a choice, then I have to be willing to take the chance to try new healthy veggies, and that will make the change. HMMM, I want to exercise that is the choice, I have to be willing to make the change and even start something, starting slow so I dont' injure myself, that will be the change.
Now to put it into practise and really keep at it. I can say i have had a streak going since oct 3rd when we got Allie. I have walked daily many times most days at least 4 miles or up to 7 which is way more than I had done in while. Yes I limp, yes my back aches, but If I want this dog to be trained she has to go out and being a puppy she has to exercise. I plan for this dog to walk daily forever! lol
So can say that today is day 43 of my walking streak!!! WOW that is a lot of days. I am going to start saying that at the start of my blogs, like others do and keep myself motivated.
I also have my functional assesment done, the girl wouldnt say anythng about the results but I know that today anyway wasn't good, my back and knees were bad from day before, I didnt sleep well so she said if it doesnt feel safe or hurts so told her okay could say nothing then cos it is all going to hurt, so I did what I could but as soon as I felt any diff in pain I stopped. the stairs today made me very dizzy and I did the strange trip thing I do on one or two of the bottom ones. Anyway now to wait, nervous but oh well. Insurance can now say, we will continue till you get to the knee dr, or can say try for CPP or we are going to buy you out, which hubby says no to. He got a bum deal when his insurance bought him out.
Well wind has turned very cold, Allie is laying by the door sleeping, hubby watching tv and figuring bills, dad reading or on puter, not sure. Tomorrow I hope to get some stuff out of dd van as now we have room in the living room for it. lol Not a lot there, hubby will probably finish the shower stall tomorrow. He has one of the walls up.
Think i will go down and sort a box or two. I will put some decorations on top of his cupboards just to empty the boxes. LOL
Okay night for now hugs and cya tomorrow!!

Well the assement was pretty well what I expected. questions and such and then lift, push, pull, walk up and down 3 steps ( not the same as a bunch of steps), squeeze. and one I didnt do was on knees crawl up and then crawl hands and knees. So have no idea, as she wouldn't tell me anything not even how much I had in the box. Said I did okay. who knows do know that 1/3 way through my back was sore, my knee and thighs and my thumbs. Anway back again tomorrow.
Pouring rain and dull, not great for pain but so so. My thumbs are very sore today which is unusual as they don't bother me that often. I have pain in my R side of my back since the assesment she saw me hold it when I had to carry a pail. That I found hard.
Got some library books and would love to hunker down under the covers and read this afternoon but betting allie has other ideas lol
Dad wants to make pancakes for supper. I said well today but starting tomorrow I am not eating wheat for while again. He said you can have them they are made of flour. I said and flour is made from wheat, well he said can be this and that and I said yea your bisquick is white processed flour. But hey will let him make them and he will be glad, amd I wont have to make supper LOL
Okay off to read and hold allie, she is a lap puppy with her bone laying on either of our laps. WHat a baby. THe vet last night loved her, he was our reg. vet and said what a girl!!!!
speaking of her she wants on the deck. ha it is pouring out she doesnt care. first dog we had that didnt mind the rain.
Cya later hugs

Evening all, after supper time here, and just going to think about another walk around the block with miss Allie. She just cried to go out so she did but I didnt' put my jacket on so told her we have to come in for minute and she went to play with hubby.
Here are the pics we took at the legion after the cenotaph yesterday...
dad and hubby in their uniforms so handsome! Dad will be 87 this nov 23rd
There you go my handsome son, beautfiul dd with torn tendons in her foot, dad and me with my new haircut.
So today was good as I was saying, other than my knees. Then I got a call from dr nurse, that I have a specialist apt Dec 5th for my knees. Should be interesting. I wonder what will happen when I go to the darn assesement on wed and thurs and then say well dec 4th I go to the spec. so no idea if he will say surgery, or say nope wait 4 more years, or no you can't work and I wont do it yet, or no you can't work and I will do it and put you on the list.
Well did a bit of dads area, hubby and I cut the backerboard for the shower, he got the knobs all on doors and drawers. I unpacked some, went to dd and helped her then brought her back here. Her entire foot is swollen now and still very sore, I said well yea will be for long while.
Think I may go down and do a bit more for dad, then take allie as she is curled up on hubbys lap. She really thinks she is a lap dog! she comes with her bone in her mouth and sits wanting me to pick her up. and same with hubby. What a baby. she is learning though.
Okay gotta go for while. HUGS cya tomorrow

Allie and I are back from a longish walk, she laid down for bit, then started chasing her ball, but has stopped again. LOL whew cos I can't play right now, my knees are sore from walking. Last eve I just felt strange, didn't feel sick but not right, almost as if my BP or Blood sugars were off. I haven't any problems with either so don't think so but had a bath and went to bed. I was asleep by 10. Felt like a long night, as at 8 hubby went upstairs and came back down in his robe. he laughed said thought it was after 9 so changed and it is only 8. I too thought it was way later. Slept well and so far feel fine, other than my knees which is a daily occurance.
Must get hubby to put the pics we took ysterday on puter, and also to get the couch and lazyboy on kijji to sell. Ours had to be ordered so we have time to get rid of it. YES! LOL
So tomorrow, Hubby and allie both go to drs. lol Then wednesday is the 2 day functional assesment testing. I am going to be totally frank and say I have to sit on the steps to put my lower clothes on, I oftentimes trip over my own feet, and feel super unbalanced ( which I know I am) but things that they won't know such as the clothes, etc. I hope they have me sit for while, type even and do normal things. But being that this is a physio clinic I am not sure. Oh well hubby said if long term start bothering me, he will find a way to get a laywer that is mostly cos he wasn't give a fair shake when he was retired without a medical pension.
Well going to make some breakfast for us, as I hear hubby moving around up there. Hope you all have a great day. I have a list and want to scratch as much as I can off of it.
HUGS and hope all feel well, and do well today! I am going to try!
