Well I a few days resting; then today I moved furniture. I rearranged the; livingroom & my dads area. I was very careful and used my legs more then my back.

Tomorrow I start physical therapy for my neck & back. I prayerfully will find out tomorrow when I will get my 1st Epidural steroids.
My legs hurt constantly along w my bac - it seems like everything that hurts is hurting more then usual.
Tomorrow I will start back with my chair marching. Hopefully by the end of the week I will b able to use either my wii or the stationary bike. I also started back up w the bootcamp today.

I m gonna start working harder on my eating. I did go buy some healthy snacks, fruits, veggies, and no junk food. To help La drink more water I bought sparkling water its flavored but with no calories n no sugar.

We were suppose 2 b getting a blizzard on Tuesday but now I hear it is gonna skip us n maybe just get some rain.

My depression is getting worse but then hey wat did I expect w all the news I've been given lately. Hubby is 40 days into contempt of court 50 days to go. Then he will go bac to court n prayerfully b home within 2 wks after that. I'm sure that things will bet @ least a little better once he comes home.

I just wish that I had some1 that I could sit & really talk to. with everything that I'm goin thru - I'm still bein a support person for so many ppl & it is honestly draining me:

- 1 persons dad is in the hospital with a blood clot in his head & there r a few complications. We sat praying earlier I m so worried about cause her marriage is in the process of breaking up on top of this.

- then there is my goddaughter who seems to b having some type of mental breakdown; I m helping her mom deal with it as she also is dealing with marriage problems

- the there is my daughter who is bipolar and well enough said about that

- my aunt who lives in Florida by herself n doesnt have much contact w ppl

- my dad who I take care of full time is depressed over his wife moving to NC w his youngest brother the family druggie

WOW no wonder I feel like I'm losing my mind

    Marcia, I am sorry to hear that your shoulders are carrying so much on them.
My prayers are with you dear, and with all your friends.
I know that sometimes we get so involved with others we forget about ourselves and our own health, I don't think it would hurt to just let go of some of that burden, and take care of you.
You know what they say "Let Go, Let God" I know sometimes we just get so caught up in everything and try to take care of everything and everyone, but let Him take these burdens from you, His shoulders are so much stronger, and He actually wants pray for these people and don't forget about praying for yourself, sometimes we forget about that as well, and the just Let Go and Let God!
Hugs and Love,

Couple Days Break

Thursday, January 06, 2011

My lower spine is swollen.
I've been overdoing alot lately. So dr said no physical activities until Monday (yeah right - like that could possibly happen) but not to b layin in bed.
I m my father full time caregiver (@ least while my hubby is away on his content of court) & I have my La (5 yr grand that I'm raising). Well I will try 4 the nxt cpl of days to only do the minimum.

I've let the afterschool program & the Christian high school where I volunteer that I will only b there until the end of Jan. I need 2 take time 2 take care of myself.

I went to the Neurological Institute today my orthopedic referred me there. Yes a Spinal Fusion is in my future; for now I m going 2 do the Epidural Steroids ( I cant schedule surgery until hubby is done his 90 days). I do start physical therapy on Monday & I still havent been able to schedule my appt to c the dr about my carpal tunnel. Cant get my emg until March 29. FUN FUN FUN Ohhh & the dentist is going to do a root canal clean up where my crown came out but if I dont find it not sure wat is gonna happen cause they doubt that the insurance will pay cause it was done in June of 09.

Well I guess thats enough depressing news 4 now. So here is some good news I went out & bought me some new clothes today. I have trouble buying clothes that fit right but I went to Family Dollar & got some. I got some saying tshirts a little snug but they are XL, so I stretch them a little & they fit great . Some of the sayings are:(You can teach me the skills but the ATTITUDE is all mine!!) (I'm in my own little world but its ok they know me here) (I smile because they are my children I laugh cause there is nothing they can do about it). I also got a cpl prs of pants in XL & L. I had to go by clothes cause mine r falling off of me. So even though I havent been losing the lbs I'm losing something

We may b getting some snow so my son has offered me the use of his snowblower so that I dont have to shovle like last time. So he is dropping it off on his way to work tonight. None of my children live near my & right now none of them r driving (all 4 differnt reasons).

I continue to Thank God for all I have & I know that no matter wat has 2 happen that he will b here w me every step of the way.

Be careful with that snow blower. I don't think using it is really your Dr.'s idea of rest. I know that you have to do what you have to do but be careful of yourself. We are suppose to get snow too..hopefully it will not happen at all. I seem to recall that you can only get the shot for the Epidural Steroids a couple of times but they are suppose to last a long time. I hope that it is helpful and brings you relief from the pain.
The new clothes sounds fun!

Today was a rough day for me but I did my bootcamp routines.
Taking La to school & piucking her up gives 1/2 hr of walking automatically.
I've done 3000 seated marching steps.

I went & got some fruits n veggies today, I m gettign the food thing undr control for the most part.

I'm not feeling so good today - La had me up for most of the night of the night she had an ear ache - when she woke up @ 9:30 she wanted to go to school so I took her in late. She is still feeling a bit under the weather so we r heading up 2 bed early tonight.

DAY 1 of 28 Day Boot-camp

Sunday, January 02, 2011

Well I started the 28 day boot-camp today. I though it started the 1st by no they recommend starting on a Sunday so needless to say.
The video really was a workout 4 me & even La tried to do it w/ me.
I have been going back & forth for a while with my weight so I figured maybe I could really get it moving again. I m dedicated.
My dd & her fiancÚ stopped over n he was laughing as I was doing chair marching steps as they were finishing up their dinner. He was like YOU REALLY ARENT PLAYING ARE YOU. I reassured him NO I m not I m dedicated. Then I showed him pics of me when I was just over 300 lbs & @ 270 lbs. I told him I keep these pics to remind me of where I will never go again. In 6 mths from now I plan on using the pics from Christmas as my I'LL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN pics.

FAIR WARNING: I will b blogging my 28 days of Bootcamp. Some blogs will b super short & some well u get it/

    Good For You. I actually started the Boot Camp yesterday, so I finished day 2 today. It was much easier. Then I did 30 minutes on the Treadmill. I am also committed to finishing this correctly and get on a weight loss path. Keep up the good work. emoticon
