ive heard of sports injuries, but this is ridiculous, with pics.

Sunday, September 08, 2013

the scars i talked about in the other blog.
well, maybe this is called oversharing, but im posting pics,
you can see under the shorter red line, which is where my bra cut into me tonight, a longer red line, and even more faded ones, those are the old ones.
my bra isnt too tight, and its a sports bra made for working out, i dont know if its the sweating causing rubbing, or what???
tonight i went for my evening walk and forgot to put my bandaids on under my bra line first...needless to say, after a good sweaty hour of walking, i have what amounts to a cut.
took a good shower using dial antibacterial soap and applied neosporin.
i was thinking i need to buy some tape that is used for wrapping feet, etc, and apply all across the area under my bra line.
something has to give!!!!
so anyway, other than that i had a good day.
stayed home and watched breaking bad all day on netflix and did some laundry, then went for that walk.
now watching the cowboys vs. giants, go cowboys!!! and hoping to turn in early tonight.
everyone have a great monday.

    Check to make sure you don't have a latex allergy. My mom developed one, and every place her underwear elastic touched developed welts. She needed to find latex free ones.

    I'm very sorry you're in pain. That being said, you really made me laugh out loud talking about your band aids. I hope you heal soon.

    I just bought a new sports bra that will rub and cut along the central neckline area. I didn't realize the wound was there the first time it happened-whoa, hot water and soap on open skin will get your attention. I am just avoiding wearing that particular one-and it is really cute-hot pink with a pink on pink pattern-dang! Best to you as your injuries heal!

feeling the heat

Saturday, September 07, 2013

Am not feeling good today at all.
Was feeling pretty good last night, then I began getting sleepy, yawing uncontrollably, so I went to be and couldnt sleep. I had begun to run a fever, got up to 100.7 not too high but high enough to feel it, and had chills and my skin just felt like it was crawling all over. I was jittery.
I wondered if it might have been where i had waited til late to take my vitamins, and had taken some aspirin for a headache.
I tossed and turned, finally getting up, and was very light headed, feeling a little sick to my stomach, but mostly hunger pangs.
So I fixed some dry toast.
Finally fell asleep around 6am and got in a full 2 hours of sleep.
So now today I am feeling better, but still not good. Wondering if I am going to snap out of this before time to go walking this evening. And also hoping the heat settles early.
It isnt looking too good. Was going to wait til about 7pm to walk, hoping the heat and sun is gone by then.
I really dont want to break my streak.
Hopefully whatever it is passes on quickly and I can get to that walk and get some sleep tonight.
Havent had time today to think about what to do.
I think staying in tonight with Hell on Wheels sounds like a plan to me.

scars, but ones i wont mind.

Friday, September 06, 2013

day 6 of my walking streak.
tonight pushing those last 10 minutes was hard, i dont know if its cause my spandex was getting a little heavy with sweat, or if my foot was aching a little or i was just so looking forward to treating myself to a subway turkey breast on whole wheat. or it could have been the chafing i am getting, again, around my bra line, all across the front, my bra closes in front and the hook not only rubs, but the bottom of the bra as well...getting some battle scars. i am back to having to wear mole skin or large band-aids, waterproof ones.
whatever it was, those few minutes were killer but i got them in.

one thing ive discovered, one downside to losing weight, i can no longer use my belly to hold the steering wheel when i drive, if i want to open a water, i have to do so before lol.
felt a little depression coming on earlier today, its a friday evening kind of thing.
but i whooped it before it whooped me.
getting out of the house and going for that walk, going to the dollar store and flirting with the hot 22 year old boy who works there and getting a sub and drinking a huge bottle of water really did wonders for my mood.
everyone have a nice night.

i almost caught up to her on the walking track.

feeling pretty good tonight, got in a one hour, sweaty walk, this makes 4 days straight i have walked and im feeling alot better.
have gone back to wearing the bone stimulator on my foot at night, cant hurt, and i doubt it has that much time programmed left on it.
but i have also been diligent about taking my vitamins this week and getting plenty of water.
while i am eating fruits and veggies, not as much as i should be, but im getting back where i need to be.
supposed to drop down into the 50s tonight, i have brought the pup inside.
hes been on the screen porch and he seems to like it out there, but, gonna bring him in and start trying to get him used to being inside, with the colder nights coming.
just wish i could break him from scooting his butt on the floor, i hate when dogs do that, my sparky was here for 9 years and he never once did that.
well, had a much better day today.
the temps werent overwhelmingly stiffling hot so i was able to get outside and enjoy the sun.
im hoping the cooler mornings allow for more walking and hopefully when i see my doctor next week, she can tweak my anti-depressant, change it or something, and hopefully the winter wont be spent totally depressed and down.
im looking forward to putting the past hurts and past lows behind me and getting back to being myself.
whoever she is.

    anal glands need to be expressed. that is what dogs do when they need that. a pet groomer or vet can do it I think. call.
I hope that your depression stays away.

    There is already a nip in the air and you can tell Fall is not very far off. I plan on getting a Happy Light this fall and winter and use it 30 minutes a day to help my mood. I hear it works. Maybe you should try it. take care.

is this really the end of summer

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

so my last blog was super duper long and very much open and raw, it was me just telling how the last year has really been for me, and believe me i left alot out.
and i do thank friends who commented and some even sent me private messages or comments and i am thankful as well.
2013 will forever be remembered by me as one of the worst years of my life, the year i struggled with a broken foot and a broken heart and a broken pattern.
but im getting it back.
today was weigh in day and no harm no foul
which bugs me to no end, because ive been walking and ive been counting calories.
i know i really do need to do more and hopefully, gradually i can start adding it back.
cold days are coming, i awoke this morning almost feeling like it was turn on the furnace weather.
that for me just means less days walking due to the dampness on the ground, i have an overwhelming fear of falling and with my still healing foot, i fear taking chances.
so i will buckle down and do what i can inside.
if i ever for an hour a day had my house to myself, it would probably help.
i have no retreat.
soon, i hope.
so with the colder days, comes hoodies, and thick socks and the electric blanket and i am determined this year, NO COMFORT FOODS like hot thick brothy soups and breads.
i am back to my protein and sticking with it, and i am determined to see some numbers dropping on the scale.

    That's the spirit, keeping fighting for the changes youo want! I admire how you don't give up, especially having such a difficult time. We all take our functioning limbs for granted but a broken foot would be quite a challenge, especially if it's slow to heal.

    I have a fear of falling outside in the cold because I broke my back 4 times. I live in Detroit and the terrible, long winter is coming. I bought some Leslie Sansone walking DVDs and I love them.

    I'm not ready for the winter yet...

I walk everyday (365) because of my dog. I got myself some good clothes and boots and no excuses. I do worry sometime about slipping on ice, etc.

You sound like you have a good attitude. Let's make this fall count! (my weight loss has been stalled as well) emoticon emoticon
