Thinking and knowing

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Hmm thinking and knowing 2 very different things in my book. I woke up this am thinking I KNOW I have to take action.

For some reason I looked up a FB person that I knew years ago, why she came into my head out of the blue no idea. So found her, and she looks like she used to , tad older but the same.

Got me thinking ( yes Caz omg she's thinking again eeek LOL ) I never thought I would be like this at 56. By like this is so unable to move, so sore, and also feeling so much older than I am. Mentally and physically. Now a lot of that is mind cos there are tons of people that are way way worse off than I that I have met here, and in real life, that I have taken care of etc.not all my people that I took care of were elderlly, yes 95% but not all. The young 32 year old bedridden cos of MS, a 53 year old that had a ton of things wrong with her who has since passed. But I wasn't getting morbid, actually it worked the opposite way today.

I thought, everyday I wake up, thank heavens, but not able to stand straight, barely able to get my socks on, let alone the dratted winter boots, and today I thought there has to be something that can be done. SO even though my back and my arthritis may not well lets say won't get better, there are some things that I can do to make it not as bad, and not come as fast. I know some, I don't know others.

One I want to do and have for while but so far noone has been able to help me. My sister in law refuses to incase she gives me a wrong exercise, I myself can only figure out some and then a few have hurt bad. So today I am going to ask my massge guy, who he knows thtat can help me make a home exercises that won't hurt my back. I don't want to go to physio with just the reg. "physio" stuff, I want an exercise routine.. sigh. I am willing help me! LOL

Also today will be a healthy eating day. We have barely any veggies in the house, and today daves the veggie store get their stuff so great timing. Later after I go to massage I will go get veggies. I also made a list of recipes and such. I also had a chat with hubby which was semi productive for me. lol

So today, I hope hubby is better, he slept till noon yesterday and didnt get dressed. Either way I can take myself to massage and the store no problem I can still drive lol I am thinking he will be better as he wants to go see about a diff cell phone electronics may make his belly better LOL

Also I have to stop at the library as the other anti inflammatory book is in and one I am reading is due back.

A full day today, sun, cold wind, pain, tightness but I am able to walk, move and decide to make the right CHOICES. it is all about our CHOICES and that is one think I dont have to think about I KNOW that.

HUGS and as per my progress not perfection team...

JUST for today I will do my best!

    I have learned some very valuable things from massage therapists I have seen in the past. I hope your massage therapist was able to give you some assistance in putting together an exercise program. Take care!

    Just start slow and make small changes. Stop if it hurts bad. You can do it!

    What about a warm water exercise class - providing they're offered near you? My Mom takes an Aqua Ritis class at the YMCA three days a week. She just loves it!

    Talking to your massage therapist about exercises and picking up some fresh veggies are all good. Your attitude is wonderful! Keep it up!

My son who tries his darndest to stay paleo sent me this link today and suggested I share with my women friends. He knows how bad my back and hips, knees ankles are so is always on the take care of mum via paleo theme!

I have read quite a few of her blogs but some reason didnt see this one even though I am subscribed, have to go check my subscriptions.

    I'd put my bets on the lift heavy things. Excessive meat consumtion has been known to leach calcium from bones.. My take on it. I have heard taking calcium not good for heart attacks and glad I have resisted!

Snow day here in NS

Monday, February 18, 2013

Been thinking of my nephew who with his girlfirend has moved to NF, they arrrived yesterday and got to St Johns safe and sound. Now we have a huge storm, so glad they aren't on the ferry, it is a long ride in good weather.... He was offered a great job and huge advancement for a young guy doing his chartered accountants and a great head on his shoulders, so I think they will have a great adventure. She is going to apply to MUN ( opps sorry university there).

So as one of my status said yesterday I was going to clean up my page, since being here forever, I thought clean up my blogs, and comments. Well am nearly done the comments down for over 2,000. But read most of them and made me realize how many friends I have, how many are really there to help me on and achieve this BUT it has to be me. has to be my choices and also cos you have to delete them individually, I got to see my background a loooooot of times! think it started sinking into my grey matter. So last night I planned what I would do today in this regards and even though it started off wrong by friggin habit ( was down putting dads socks on, an just not even thinking too two of his malted balls) oh well thats okay. I still am on track now. Right now drinking my water.

Also I started thinking again after reading the comments, that I am oftentimes too hard on myself. I was up to 200 lbs and am still down to 185 lowest I have gotten was 180 So still have lost, have been drinking my water for over a week now, at least 6 glasses of water and countless weak green tea. I just have to get my food in better order, and also move more without worrying about hurting my back. That is my issue letting pain and also fear of doing the wrong exercise so don't do them. I ask physio but they don't give me a do at home reg. ex. plan....

So this am, told hubby I still want to go to a naturopath and that I wonder how well I would do, for one think you wouldn't help much He said I don't care if you go. I said yea but say she said you are senstiive to potatoes, eggs, stuff that we eat often ( well he eats potatoes I can leave them be) what do you think I will do. I know allready you won't eat most of what I probably should eat, but am I going to be making 2 meals... he said well I can make my own potatoes once in while ( ha we know it will be french fries if anything) He can cook and cooks well but is not inclined to unless we have company. So will see what comes of it. I may call and ask some questions cos if they want current bld work I will wait a bit cos have to get bld work in march and see my GP end march for full yearly.

But that doesnt mean I can't get started now. So going to finish deleting comments, then check my recipes that I have online and going to chose a few and this time do it LOL last time I did all that then ddint follow it. lol Tomorrow we will get veggies and such as I have froz ones now and the truck comes in tomorrow, pending weather I am sure.

So have a good day planned, we have no apointments and as far as I know nowhere to go. Maybe hubby will do dads trim and we can get the bathroom done, or poor guy, go to dd and do her tub caulking again, or put in her new light fixture, or call dil and tell her the cos for what she wants done. Not like he couldn't be busy everywhere... so lets hope he either gets dd new light up or dads bathroom. Or I can dream and say both! but know that isn't going to happen.

Have a great day sparkers and off to get my plan done, healthy eating, a bit of moving and also our snow walks.

Oh btw I took sierrasill last eve, slept still very broken, was awake from 3-after 4 then slept off and on and did wil from 6 or so till 7 when allie started crying. So not sure if it helped but m arms were itching last night. will try it like that again this eve and see.

Cya later buddies!

    Thanks for comments on my blogs, dropped by to see you. Yes, I am in North Sydney, NS, where are you?

Is it diabetes that makes your arms itch? My dh's cousin has her arms get sore when her sugars go up and she needs her insulin.. shes 60. just a thought.. I haven't read any of your other blogs, so disregard if you've already explained...

Rainy dull Sunday but I will shine!

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Hmmmm interesting... I had read about SierraSil before I started taking it but either didn't read this or forgot.
"Symptoms of healing reactions include mild headaches, changes in bowel movements, skin irritations, increased pain or swelling, changes in heart rate and/or low energy. Some SierraSil users may temporarily experience healing reactions as the SierraSil begins to take effect and the toxic load of the body reduces. "
Well that could explain the arm being a mess, and also the low grade headaches for about 2 days or so. Interesting. I had continued to take it but at least this makes me think about my arm in a better light.

Not sure whats on for today, it is dull, rainy and just at freezing. I took Allie for a walk, wasn't too bad, but I was still very sore from bed so wasn't as good as yesterday. But thinking positive I was able to walk, she didnt pull much and it wasn't slippery! lol

Dad is grouchy today, thinking he didnt sleep well either. I presume he will be going out to Tims later. He must have been bored or lonely yesterday as he was up here with hubby for 1.5 hrs thats a long time for him to talk lol

We haven't heard from Sil, we told her to let us know when she wanted us to visit. Have seen her on FB a bit so hope all is well. Today being sunday she and Jen will probably go to church, don't think Eric will be as he didnt meet wih the minister either. Oh well as long as this doesnt negatively affect us which I won't let it. Mur will not get depressed from this.

Think I will finish up my 3rd glass of water, have a cup of green tea and go from there, by that time hubby will be up and wanting to go for breakfast I would think. Omlette today, trying to not have wheat and eggs only once a week. See how that goes.

Later, going to get hubby to put the sewing machine away, I can't lift it right now, then I can tidy my craft room again. That will feel good as it is a huge mess, everything out of the closet so I could get the sewing stuff out. Done with it for now so back it goes. I also am going to do some of that list from last week,just odds and ends I thought of doing., cleaning out old cookbooks, tidying my stuff on pintrest, and my page here. not really happy with it after changing it yesterday.

So will be busy and not wander looking for food. LOL Not that we have anything here so that is okay. May go to the veggie store or make due with my froz till tues and their new shipment.

Have a great day sparkers, cos even though it is dull and rainy, and I am achy ( not too bad though) I am going to shine! lol

Saturday, February 16, 2013

Saturday, Saturday .... lol
Had a good day today, a bit of pain here and there, a good time out with dd for a bit. used some of my Micheals gift cert money for scrapbooking for our travels even though it is a year away. Was sort of a valentine thing for hubby lol. Then took her home and we went got some groceries and home.
I was exhausted around 4 so had a nap, read for a bit and did manage to fall asleep without too much pain for an hr.
Had a healthy supper, a bit of junk after......... sigh and now a hot tea. Wish it was an hr later and I would go back to bed. Oh well take Allie for walk in a bit and maybe have a nice soak, forgot to buy some more epson salts. Oh well, thats okay.
Hope you all had a good day too!
