I am determined

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

to make today a great day. The sun is out, it is cold but not frigid and I am going to get through this headache and body tightness.

I have been getting so tight and stiff at night and not sleeping well cos of it. I also have noticed way way more pain in my thumb joints ( guess where your thumb and hands join lol) so much so that I an barely pick up light things at times. Getting my bra and pulling up my socks is so bad. My socks are getting desperate cos between my socks and my back so sore in am, it is really hard.

So back to square 1. I have not been eating well since back when Lisa and I had that weekend, so may as well say since Christmas really. More odd days of good eating than any continuous times. Today will be really taking care and noting what I am eating. I have still been writing and noting my days but have to figure this out. I will eat what I am and really keep track for few days then going to have to start gf again. I just don't know if it was that as has only gotten bad the past week or so.

Ironically haven't had any belly pain in while. Last time I had eaten a fair bit of raw veggies with hummus. Other than that I figure it is eggs.

This am I woke with a slight headache and my right hand so asleep it felt like total dull pins and needles. As I woke it took a while for my hand to wak and my headache got much worse. Got up dressed, and went down stairs to get ready to take allie out. My head hurt so bad, my hands and back made getting my boots on a painful chore that I started crying. Allie bless her started crying nad licking my hands and face. We went for our walk and the first one of the day is usually good for me, unless she is way to excited. So once I moved a bit, I stood and let the sun shine while she sniffed, thanked God that I can walk, and move no matter how slow or painful. ( lol hard to bend to pick up after her! LOL) we went for over 2,000 steps and when we got back my body moved a bit better. I still have headache but not as severe.

Went down to dads to put his socks on and he said are we going to go out for breakfast today( I had suggested today as he had asked while back) I said oh dad I am so so sore today but how about tomorrow. I told him that I need to go to chiro but have to get the money as they dont direct bill our insurance. So he said use the money in our savings. I hate using or asking for his money. He says it is ours but never will I use it without asking it isnt mine to me till he is gone it is his. Have seen too much of "borrowing" family money with the people I took care of and I won't do that.
So anyway going to call chiro and get back on that stretching machine again. I did feel better when doing that.
Okay best get this day going along, Hubby going to have shower after Kelly and Micheal then go to Thomas and Evas for a visit and return blanket. Then to the bank, and store.
Took the tylenol and still not much better. Darn.........

HUGS all hope you have a great day all!

    This is going to sound cheesy- But an object in motion tends to stay in motion. Those initial movements first thing in the morning I have always felt were the hardest. It sounds to me like you're not one to let your pain dictate your life. That is incredible and inspiring! Pain is so demanding. I wish you the best of luck in your endeavor to get healthy and stay that way. YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Sunday eve almost bedtime

Sunday, January 27, 2013

Had a good day today, we went for breakfast and sat and discussed house plans which hubby had drew up and printed off and brought with us. Finished Nicos sweater other than just to sew it up. DD and hubby were over for a bit after supper, she went down to visit grampa for bit. Dad loves that girl so much almost sad to see the diff in her and her brother. I rememeber when Chris hung onto dad for dear life and didnt want to get in the truck cos he understood we were moving clear across country and wouldnt see dad for long time.... and now it is so blatant that dad choses lisa. HE thinks she looks like mum, noone else does. oh well people say I do and dad did too before, now it is all lisa. Glad she pays attention and visits him for sure..
Taking allie to vet tomorrow as she has a good size lump in the centr of her incision. Sure it is nothing but would like one of the tech to have a look see and see if vet needs to look.
NOt much more new, had a good supper, fish. Hubby so doesn't like it. LOL Me I used to hate it and now I like it more than he does.
Going to go to bed early, been waking up anywhere from 3-5 and tossing and turning and odd small or large charly horses again, been while since they bothered me. tad concerned that both my thumb joints are hurting a lot, been a week or more continuously, I don't like that it is both as hope it isnt rheumatoid arth. and not just osteo. Oh well will keep tabs and let dr know in march when I get my physical.
Okay off I go bit to do before bed. HUGS all, sleep well and great day tomorrow.

    It's very sad to see a relative play favorites. I personally don't believe in it but most people seem to do it.

I hope Allie is okay!!

I love fish. It's actually my favorite protein.

Friday and not much to say

Friday, January 25, 2013

Wow me not much to go blabber on about! LOL
Cold, windy have kept us inside more than not, and also Allie hahahaha supposed recuperation. Yea well she loves it out there, so we are walking and as soon as it warms up some will start going further again. She does stop to check her paws but sure that if I got her boots she would chew them.
Hubby says he is starting to feel a bit better after a few days on the meds. antibiotics and 2 puffers. I hope so but says he is still getting a headache. We are trying to figure if it is the antibiotic and or the one puffer. He thought one now wonders if it is the other.
Started on Nico's, dd boxer, coat. I am knitting one then may try to sew one afor him. I did one last year but doesn't fit now and my machine didnt like the material much and I do have some left that could be made to work.
Did uppper body strength today and really felt it. Good but was surprised it felt that hard. LOL
Tomorrow lower body as yesterday was rest day. I was going to use Sunday but we were busy ysterday so said okay will do it sunday. So far enjoying it a lot.
Hope all are well and have had good days. Make great choices and enjoy your eve and weekend! We may go to the rv show................. man whyyyyyyyyyyyyy we aren't buying or trading this year! LOL

# 2 blog for today

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

It is after supper so the kitchen is closed lol I feel full so that is good.
Drs apointments were good. I am doing better he offered a puffer but said if I feel okay then not to bother, fine by me. He really listened to my chest a lot. Hubby he listened 4 spots said thats all I need. you have a bad bronchial thing going on with some wheezing. So gave him an antibiotic and 2 puffers. Was going to use some prednisone but it can bug depression drugs and where hubby has a hard time with those meds, and really goes off the deep end, he is wanting to do this first. If no better by monday call and he will order prednisone, but one of the puffers is steroidal. YUK but he needs something.
Then off to store for his scripts, some milk for dad, and water for dads machine. Home now and we have had supper and he is trying to fix Allies doughnut collar, what a pain in the butt. 2nd one as we traded the first and today we bought bike tire patches for it. So he has put on 3 of them. What a good idea but gee did we get two that were deffective. I am emailing Kong cos most of their stuff is great.
It is freeeeeezing cold out there, a lot of us are in a cold snap. man even with my long johns it is cold. fast walk around the block for allie and I tonight!
Well not much more new, going to go check out some pages, and tidy kitchen then hopefully my buddy will be on IM and we can have a chat.
Hope all are well and have made good choices today. I have and did upper strength today!

Something has to be done

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

The huge companies have infiltrated all areas of govt which also go right down to personal health. Be more like Europe and say no to these GMOs. etc.
This was in my inbox today and just wanted to share... If I am not to share this please just let me know and I will delete it. There is nothing offensive just sad, very sad that so many peole can't fight a huge company but in Europe they don't stand for it.

Something has to be done... and me I want to be able to afford grass fed meat, fresh eggs and the likes.

    I agree that eating as 'cleanly' and healthily as possible is sadly not a priority for most Americans. However, as a geneticist, the topic of GMOs is always a sticky one for me. I know how genes are transferred between species and why, and I know the pros and cons. Certain things cause problems, and certain things are totally harmless. It's a tough topic with no one answer that will make everyone happy.
But in America in general, people are not willing to fight for anything. I believe it is mostly apathy combined with government support for the wrong programs, laziness and a complete self-centered-ness. Unless things directly affect your life in a negative way, you aren't going to get off your hiney and go out of your way to do something about it. Plus people are cheap more so than morally motivated, so it's easier and cheaper to just shop at walmart or whatever rather than support small business, local farmers, or organic producers.

    YES. Thanks for sharing the article. I'm working on a project in the next few years so that I can raise that grass-fed beef for people. It's so hard to do it and price it at a level that more people can afford. The gov't subsidizes most of the corporate ag outfits, including big feedlot growers, since the grain is subsidized, along with other things. So when small producers don't get any help at all, they have to charge more to cover the actual costs of production. I urge people to write their representatives about the Farm Bill, since that's where a lot of policy is made. We need more support for small, sustainable farms.
