My SP One Year Anniversary!

Wednesday, February 04, 2009

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Wow! Without SP, I don't think I would've had or reached as many goals. Thank you everyone for your excellent support through both my good and rough times! Even when I reach my goal weight and achievements (such as a 5K, etc), I will still be here. The truth be known, I'm only human; I may be tempted to over indulge, get lazy with workouts, or have life's circumstances present a challenge. I'm not being negative or self-depreciating, we all know these are part of life, but to have such great support with SP & God will keep me from throwing in the towel.
So, cheers! emoticon Now on to year number 2!

A nice surprise!

Sunday, February 01, 2009

When I came home from church, my husband surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of yellow flowers! He told me in three simple words as to why: "I love you". Needless to say, this really made my day! emoticon emoticon emoticon
This blog will be brief as we are getting ready for Superbowl Sunday. May the best team win!

    Yeah! now to gently keep it neutral. I keep trying to strengthen my abs and back and if I'm steady about it, I seem to have less pain. Such a balance - do something - wait! NOT too much! haha I'm tellin' you - MERMAIDS!

Sciatica slowed me down for now.....

Saturday, January 17, 2009

For the past several days, I haven't done much workouts; once in a great while, sciatica hits me and leaves me feeling like someone hit me with a baseball bat and it's something I wouldn't wish on a junkyard dog. I DON'T want to take Rx meds for it. Here and there, I am taking Tylenol extra strength and that is helping, not 100%, but makes it more bearable, along with Absorbine Jr.
If anyone has any suggestions for this, I would surely welcome it. Thanks!

    Hey Chris, I know how painful that can be. When I stood a lot on cement as a lifeguard I used to get it all the time. The thing that helped me was to get my brother(anyone) to stand on my bum and wiggle around, kneading the muscles. I would lie on the floor and put 2 chairs on either side of me (backs facing towards the middle). Then my brother would support most of his weight on the chairbacks and stand on my bum. It was no strain on him either, and I didn't have to have anyone touching me on my bum, which I would feel uncomfortable about. My brother thought it was very funny and didn't mind. It felt much better after doing it a few times for a few days in a row. I know it sounds crazy, but give it a try with your hubby or any girlfriends at work if you can go to an office and close the door for a few minutes.

I hope that helps and you get a chance to try it.

    I never liked ice or thought that it would help but my dad got me this really NICE icepack - big and flat and I stuffed it into some sweatpants and used it and recovered much much faster than usual. Will it work for you? I dunno! Our back pain is all different. BUT I thought I'd tell you that was a big surprise that helped me. I hope you feel better soon! Sciatica stinks!

I hope you have a very happy healthy and prosperous new year! My husband & I had a quite new year's eve at home with a healthy home-cooked lean eye of round roast with plenty of baked fresh veggies, and I'm proud to say that I had only one light beer to ring in the new year. The reason I'm making mention of that is because SparkPeople has changed me dramatically; normally I would have gorged to beyond comfortably full, had lord knows how many drinks, and stayed up til sunrise. So, instead of sleeping away any hangover, I am getting ready to put on my workout outfit and walk/jog.
Well, on that note, I am off and running (yes, pun intended)!
God bless you my friends and happy new year!
