Struggling !

Saturday, September 28, 2013

I've been trying to walk more but it's so difficult. I have arthritis in my hip joints and it's getting worse. The pain is stopping me. They increased my pain medication dosage and I hate that. So for awhile I have to cut back on anything physical. I guess my progress will slow down a bit but I'm not going to give up. The upside of this is I was weighed yesterday and I've lost 12 pounds since the last time I weighed. emoticon !!! I know that as long as I keep eating healthy foods and stay true to my meal plan I'll be alright. Still taking it " One Day at a Time". emoticon

    Good for you! You are right about taking it one day at a time. Also, step by step. Don't forget about making sure to drink plenty of water. 12 emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Take it one day at a time. If you can't walk, perhaps try chair marching. It does help, I have arthritis in my knee and had to chair march when it was acting up.

    That is great, I will take a 12 pound loss anytime. One day at a time is the perfect way to plan your walking. Hope you get some relief in your hip area.

A blessed day !

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

It's a wonderful day, the best I've had in a long while. I actually got up and cooked a tasty breakfast casserole this morning for all of us. I haven't been able to do this in a very long time.
My outlook on life has gone though a gradual change. I realized that I don't wake up exhausted and dreading another day. I've changed a lot of thing in my life, my diet, sleeping habits,the amount of physical activity and my whole attitude about everything. There is more clarity in my mind. It's becoming easier to deal with the ups and downs of everyday life. My family even notices the difference. I'm blessed. There's a song in my heart emoticon " What a Beautiful Morning"

Trivia ?s

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

I love answering the trivia questions. I know that you learn something new everyday but I'm actually surprised by the ones I get right . I found out that I know things that I never really gave any thought to. It's funny how we tend to absorb things without giving any thought to them.

    And what we think we know for sure we find out that we don't.

Prayer Works

Sunday, September 01, 2013

For awhile now I've been dealing with some serious pain. It's difficult to even care about doing things the right way.That includes eating,exercising and just about anything else. I finally just sat down and simply asked for just a touch from God's healing hands,and today I feel wonderful. I've been smiling all morning and actually feel like getting some things accomplished today. To everyone who reads this, have a blessed day and try prayer. It really works. emoticon


Cleaning !!!!!!!!!

Sunday, August 25, 2013

Never let anyone tell you that cleaning is not serious exercise. I spent half a day cleaning one room. By the time I was finished I felt like I had run a marathon. I think I used muscles that I haven't used in years. So believe me that was my exercise for the day. Hey ! One more day of movement for me. emoticon emoticon That's a really good deal.

    Keep up the good work! Tomorrow, reward yourself with a little salsa music or something really good and just dance! No one is watching and it is an easy way to feel good! (Think I will take my own suggestion for that tomorrow too!) Let's compare notes tomorrow! emoticon
