On The Mend

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Feeling alot better today, as long as I wear my knee & back brace. I dont have to stay on bed rest the swelling went down n its not as bad as they thought it was. It seems to just be a strain I even did the bowflex treadclimber for 15 mins & I havent done it in mths. I refuse to remain down I will get healthy.

I have alot of things to work on I need to healthy physically, spiritually, & mentally. It's not gonna b easy but I'm not a quitter, I m a fighter. I will fight 4 wat I need & 4 wat I want. Right now I want to find a healthy balance in my life & I will.

My social life is very busy with mine & others ppl stuff but its getting easier. La has soccer on Sat & Girl Scouts on Thurs. Hubby has mtg on Thur & Fri. I volunteer @ a Christian high School on Tues & starting in Nov I will b volunteering w/ an afterschool program on Tues & Wed. Fri night I help coordinate Friday Nights for Everyone @ my church along with youth group. Sundays is church & Sunday School. Monday is the only day that nada is scheduled for well unless my marriage counseling is scheduled fro then.

My daughter is looking 4 an apt but not having much luck but I'm praying. Hubby's 1st day of work was rescheduled till tomorrow & its only part time but hey its something, n we still doing as on line for him.

I love dinner time especially on the nights that hubbys home. We cook together n sit as a family to eat. Everyone is even eating salad, veggies & healthy food w/ me

The Dr recommended 2 wk bed rest - I did 2 days. he said he knows I'm not gonna do the 2 wks in bed but to at least take it easy for the nxt 2 wks.

I m back 2 wearing my back brace n walking w/ a cane. Saturday I fell up the steps. I messed up my thigh & left knee, I also pinched my syatic nerve again.

The only walking I will b doing is taking La bac n forth to school n I will use the cane then. I will b riding my staionary bike when my knee isnt bothering me.

I'm waiting 4 my appts 4 my test I have to get a neck x-ray, an mri & an eeg. Prayerfully after they are done we will know y my legs r still giving out on me.

Wore Out

Friday, October 15, 2010

I feel so guilty. I've been really run down since I had my oral surgery.
So wat do I do:
I eat junk food n get sugar rush.
I'm not exercising like I was due to pains in my legs n back. I cant sit long cant stand long * definitely aint walking much these days others then wat I have to do.

Well I've gotta snap out of this. With being a little mentally off when I feel run down I start slipping back into depression. I'm not gonna allow this to happen I'm gonna fight it with every thing that I m.

Hubby is back home & is trying really hard to be understanding but I snap for no reason & I apologize later but I just want to control it. He starts working @ BK part time on Monday but her is still putting in for warehouse jobs so prayerfully something pops up soon.

It's a busy weekend. Tonight luckily youth group is game night so I aint gotta do much, cause afterwards I will b helping to decorate for my nieces sweet 16 which is tomorrow night. Tomorrow morning La got soccer. Sunday I m deacon-ing in church, then teaching Sunday School. And now I m heading off to help out with the bake sale @ La's school.

People really dont realize how much I work w/o even havign a job.

    Hugs Maga!!!! Can you try some chair exercises like Dawn does since your legs and back are causing too much pain being up and about? Ask her about them and give it a try. Hang in there sweetie! You WILL do this!

Having aches and pains do slow you down, try small increments to see if that helps. Glad to hear hubby is back.

Oral Surgery

Friday, October 08, 2010

I had the surgery on Tuesday n they had to cut my gum open to get a root from a tooth that has been gone for over 10 yrs. So now I have stitches that r really irritating, besides that root they took 2 teeth out.

Marriage counseling should b starting in the next 2 wks.

I have to go back to the neurologist to reset the appts that I missed for my test. So its gonna b a busy cpl of wks trying to get everything back on track. i thought I was getting better so I wasn't worried about the test but no its just as irritated as ever. Even with the sleeping pill I'm not getting a full night of sleep.

Well I not feeling well so back to bed I go

Truly Blessed

Sunday, October 03, 2010

Today was Family & Friends Sunday @ church - which I hosted. My dearest friend & her children came. My daughter & my niece were there. i went a little overboard on the amount of snacks but they will b for the grands afterschool snacks this week.

Even though today was my day off from cardio I got some in.

I think my meds are finally starting to work. I've been in a very upbeat mood for a portion of everyday for the past week. I still go to that dark place everyday but it's not as bad or long as it use to be.

My eating habits continue to improve and to think it only took 2 years,

I havent been happy with progress lately but when I look but not a yr ago but 2 yrs ago. At that time I was over 300 lbs & practically living on junk food & the only exercise I got was walking around the house to do chores. Chores that now take an hr or so to do use to take all day. I couldnt walk a block w/o having to catch my breath. I couldnt even go shopping w/o my cane & now i ride a bike to go shopping.

So in retrospect I m truly blessed by the ppl who are there when I need them and by the improvement in my health.
