Tuesday a good day

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Got my stretch from chiro Oh I love that stretching machine. Also found out that one of the massage therapists that work there does reiki. I have had 2 treatments of reiki and loved it, I got great response from it so booked on for end of feb. I also book another table for next week. I told him I can't afford to go 2x wk as my insurance runs out too quickly and it benefits me so much and he agreed. So valentines day I go back.

I also got the SeirraSil caps so will start those tomorrow am, and record how I feel. I hope they work. I wanted to do the castor oil packs that were recommended too but I would like to see what is working and not do two right away. Will see. I hope something helps my thumb joints soon.

The empeneur fair that was supposed to be this sat. has been cancelled till April. There is supposed to be a huge winter storm coming friday and sat. and since some were coming from the valley I guess they cancelled it now. Oh well something to look forward to in April.

Was knitting nicos bottom part of his sweater, as the first try didnt fit, but think I may run out of yarn so going to stop and take it down tomorrow and see if it is too wide. Sghe called today see if it was done as it is so cold. Boxers mind the cold. Allie loves it. silly girl. I was leary on walks today as the sidewalks are plowed but that sometimes makes them slicker unless you can manage to stay in the tracks the plow makes. So we were out in the field out back more. She loves it and really doesnt seem to mind the wind . Funny a helicopter was overhead she watched it, barked, ran don't know what she thought she was gong to achieve but she wanted to let that copter know she saw it LOL

Okay going to go and get my emails caught up and then not sure what.
HUGS have a good sleep and great day tomorrow!

Brrr day 2 and I am cold

Saturday, February 02, 2013

LOL as hubby would say What's new you are always cold. Allie and I went for our walk, she seems better this am, but actually this new behaviour is usually in evenings. We wonder if she wants more attention or a longer eve. walk. Well with my back acting up that won't happen unless hubby takes her AHHAHAHA.
Today I would love to stay home and just get stuff done but know we need to go to the health food store for acidophilus and then probaby super store. They aren't far and hopefully won't take long. I have made a list of what I want to get done. Exercise is on the list lol Make it a check off item for sure.
So best go get some breakfast and dishes done. Then see what is in store as hubby will be up in few mins.
Today will be better than yesterday, which I think was pretty good. Wasn't perfect but considering I could have made way worse choices I did fine.
On to day 2.
cya all later have great days too!

    Since I have been sick I am hot and cold and hubby is always cold so it makes an interesting dilemma. I'm glad Allie seems to be okay.

    Allie is a growing puppy. Is she meandering around her food dish? Could it be she's wanting more to eat? Sugar was doing that for awhile until I caught on, it was when I changed her food and she was needing more than I estimated. Hope you get warmed up! Enjoy the weekend.

    You're 2 Adorable reasons for healthy living will be your inspiration & motivation! I have 4 grandchildren...1st son's family 16 & 12 y/o girls...2nd son's family 3 y/o grandson & 1 y/o granddaughter (Oct 3 much like yours). Aren't grandbabies God's loving blessings to us!?!

Glad your in the Winter 5% Challenge. Do you know which team you'll be on this time? I've been on several challenges in 2011 & 2012, but was sidelined by chronic migraines the end of last summer. Am now waiting to see if I'll be on a team other than the TeddyBearTeam! Good luck to you in the challenge!!!

ARGH Pain is making me frustrated

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Oh man Allie is wanting a nice walk, hubby put her out and she didnt' do any biz. she just loves it outside. I am not taking her out right now. Had to take oxycotin cos of the pain in my mid back. I am sure most of it is from her when the darn leash catches and we both don't realize it is going to. I know how far she can go and it will catch, but sometimes it snap catches. Old leash from our other dog so tomorrow a new leash will be bought. We also borrowed dd martingale collar to start her with. We said at 6 months which she will be on the 3rd.
So hoping that is what is causing this pain cos never had it till the past month or so but wow puts me right out of commision. Between my constant lower back, then that I am so so so thankful that my sciatica is not flared LOL Poor dad keeps saying go lay down, do to the dr. Well nothing dr will do and he knows you can't get into him like that. and laying down is torture til I totally relax. Oh well this too will pass and many more are way worse than I am.

Hoping my spark buddy comes on MSN as we have a chat date. lol Going to do the 100 days together which will be good.

Tomorrow a new month, new commitment and new hope. LOL AHHA the pain tomorrow can't be any worse than the pain 35 years ago when I had my first baby LOL oh but he was so worth it. He is working both his jobs tomorrow so no chance to see him for long. We haven't decided if we are going to go out for lunch or not he may not even have time but usually can.

Even with this pain I am still in the mood to get this change going. The rest of this year canNOT be like Jan was. This is ridiculous and can not continue. My body mind and life deserve better of me. I am too old to be not taking care of myself better especially since I do know how. I read somewhere today "Eat high quality and nutritious food, and get in tons of veggies. Thatís it. Donít overanalyze it. " -Jen Comas Keck she has it down pat and it can't get much simpler than that. Totally my issue overanalyzing it and worrying about how to do it. My God my eating would be so much better if I did just that.

I am excited to see February come and I am willing to meet it head on with a better life in store. I do feel as if I have to apologize to me, and all my spark friends. I so feel as if I am a fraud, and am lying to you all, but worst of all to myself. I say all this and then last a day if that. Maybe 2 wks or so on a good run. Then get very down on myself and think what good is it or am I if I can't even be true to myself. I wouldn't do this to a friend so why to me.

Thanks to so many of you for being here, for believing in me even when I don't believe in myself. But will end this with a positive - I have started strength training still more upper than lower but have to say I do like it and have been consistent for over a week. There is some light at the end of this tunnel.

Keep thinking oh I would love to help women that can' get started or stay started. Not sure how but some way some how I just may accomplish that! I did think what if I got my natural nutrition degree and my sil has her personal trainer papers and we could go together and help and or teach classes of some sort.

So it isn't that I don't want to do this, just seem to not get off the carb addiction I really do feel it is an addiction or just a sugar one. If people can get off drugs illegal or legal then I can "get off" sugar and carbs ( well not eat as many as I do).

Here's to a new month and a new plan. Now to go chat and or lay down this meds is making me really hot and dizzy. NO more of that, so much for hubby saying take 1.5 the most you can cos the pain was so bad. pain is lessening but feel nauseous and lightheaded. lol

HUGS to you all.

Jan 30th

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Raining now and supposed to be a mixed bag of mess. lol I am still stiff but nothing compared to yesterday. I am not aching in as many places either. Good as have stuff I wanted to do, clean and purge the basement hall closet again, and our linen closet also. We are trying to figure our cottage just cos we love doing that and I keep sayign where will we put ..... so he says purge now and see how much room you will acutally need for that many towels sheets etc. Okay I am good at that, my dd not so much she keeps everything!

Feeling my age today, as my son will be 35 on friday. We were talking about what to get him and such, and remembering bringing him home and then him peeing all over my dad first time he took care of him. lol just memories. Called to see if he was working both jobs on Friday but he has to get back to me.

Took the blanket over to Thomas yesterday. Well I fixed all the binding, and there was a small hole in the quilt so I mended that with a patch of flanellette. still soft but not the same pattern, obviously since that quilt will be 35 on friday! Well Thomas is quite imperssed with the Bandaid for the blankets bo boo. lol Cute he showed Chris when he got home, blankets back and has boo boo. LOL

Well sitting here isn't giving me any exercise other than my fingers and not getting what I want done. Now is good time as allie is napping lol

HUGS and hope ou all have a great day.

    We are expecting a few days of mixed bag of mess too. Ugh.

I have been working on our medicine closet which is actually our linen closet. I have gotten rid of lots of stuff but still was not brutal enough. I never seem to go as far as I should. I tend to keep too much like your daughter.

Loved the stories about your son and grandson. LOL.

    Begining to think I'll see an Ark float by when I go out after work today....Poured yesterday, raining today, tomorrow -- snow.

Enjoyed hearing about the quilt patch -- I have my baby quilt my great-grandmother made for me (qualifies as an antique now! :) ). I love seeing the older fabrics that you don't see much nowadays (unless you find a company doing reproductions). Do you quilt now?
