Day 2 - 2012

Monday, January 02, 2012

Today I printed out a workout chart for the mth of Jan. to help me stay focuses & on track. I even added the stuff that I'm hoping to do by the end of the mth.

I m tracking ALL my food. Which is more then which I normally eat (TTOM).

We arranged the entire downstairs to make it easier for me& my dad to get around w our walkers. Now we just need to finish upstairs which includes my workout room. We do still have to do ramps 1 from the porch into the living room then 1 from the kitchen into the pantry area ( which leads 2 the restroom) If we dont lose the house due to back taxes we will get ramps from the outside.

Dad is still in the rehab & will probably b there 4 a cpl of wks, My MIL is in the hosp waiting for a biopsy results. Like my dad she also has just had 2 surgeries.

Tomorrow I plan on doing a weigh in & measurements for the new year. Problem is that my scale & the wii have me @ 2 different weights; so I guess I have 2 find a 3rd weigh in the do a comparison. I plan on doing this on a mthly basis.

Well I guess thats all for now; got to finish my exercising for the day.

    My, you are really getting going! I suggest you just track with one of the scales, so you'll still know if you are going up or down. You are well on your way to a healthier you! Congrats!

Day 1 2012

Sunday, January 01, 2012

Well I have decide to try the jump into January challenge . I cant do half the stuff on the videos but I m adapting them to work for me.

My depression & I are fighting again - I really m trying not to give into it. But it is just so hard especially when I can't get my meds due to the insurance screw-up.

I'm still not getting much sleep due to the pain. The surgery on my back helped cause I dont fall down anymore but I m in constant pain. Its not just the back - the nerves in my neck r getting worse which causes the numbness & pain in both of my arms. I have bought several different types of pillows that r suppose 2 help & they do for a short period of time. Nada seems 2 last 4 much time.

I now have a walker w 4 wheels & a seat so I can start going 4 walks again. I have a stool in the kitchen so I can help to do dishes. Hubby & I do the cooking together. So I m doing more things but I stay have trouble dressing myself; getting in & out of the tub & taking care of myself in general.

CHRISTmas Blessings

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

this was going to be the most depressing Christmas for me ever. For the first time in my life I am in a house where there are no children. Growing up I had my siblings. when I moved out of my fathers house I already had my son. then when my children werent in my home; 1 yr I had a cpl of runaways living with me; another yr I had a foster child then after that I had my LaLa (my eldest grand). But this yr no kids & my 1st Christmas since I asked my daughter to take custody & beings that she has disowned me I cant even c her.
Well hubby & I decided to start new traditions. We decided to spend out time volunteering. Then on Christmas Eve my Goddaughter brought over daughter to make cookies; candy & cupcakes; then in the evening we helped with the Christmas play @ church. After church we had a few ppl over for a fire in my back yard ( I may live in 2nd most dangerous city in the us but I'm a country gurl @ heart). The last person left around midnight; even the church volunteer from Germany came over.
On Christmas we went to my Uncles house for food & drinks.
Today is my mothers b-day (she went to b w God 9-15-05); my eldest child my - son & h
is daughter came over (she will b 3 in March & is so dag-on bad). I got to give them their gifts and the we just had alot of fun. My hubby & son played ping-pong with all the balls from tree. Then they had a nerd candy fight. My grand Skyann took a bite out of every single cupcake that we had. My niece even called to make sure I was ok w it being my mom b-day

We have already decided that for New Years we will do a little house hopping but b home by ourselves @ the stroke of midnight; then on New Years Day we will b having another fire.

I think I'm gonna like these new traditions; not to mention I saved alot of money. Hubby & I will exchange out gifts on 3 Kings Day.
