Forgive...

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

It's hard but is possible. When someone else doesn't forgive me for mistakes there is nothing I can do about it. I have to put it in that area of things I cannot change and have to let go of. emoticon

    Yep, you have to 'accept the things you cannot change'. Otherwise it will make your crazy.

    You have to forgive yourself, and not worry about the others.

    Comes under the category of things beyond our control, indeed. Those are the things that go into the "kiss it up to God" category and that helps me move forward and handle those thing that are in my control. Keep up the good work.

    It is wisest to let it go. No need to worry about what cannot be changed and less stress if you do.

    When someone doesn't forgive you, it's their problem. You are correct put it in the area that you cannot change.

Water aerobics

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

I am working on hand exercises and my knees when I am in the pool this week. I woke up this morning with a sore back and wonder if that "cross-country skiing exercise in the deep water" did that. I have to do that one more gently today.

Hope everyone has a great day and here's hoping for some sunshine. It sure has been gloomy here lately. emoticon

One day, one problem at a time....

Monday, March 15, 2010

I hate that feeling of being overwhelmed and so I am going to try to work on one problem at a time and one day at a time. No wonder I have felt "scattered" and "overwhelmed" lately. This week I am concentrating on hand exercises and scar massage. emoticon emoticon

    Baby steps, if you will just take baby steps and conquer one thing at a time. emoticon

    When I feel "scattered and overwhelmed" and I do so frequently (I think it is a bit of ADD) I sometimes find if I just accomplish one small thing I feel better...

    When I feel overwhelmed that is my cue to re-evaluate. Taking one thing at a time is a great approach. Job one for me is making Healthy Choices. Take good care of yourself.

    So true! Try to concentrate on one issue at a time. Much less stress that way. Have a good Monday! emoticon

Sunday...a new week...big plans

Sunday, March 14, 2010

Yesterday turned out to just be a lazy day and I didn't make it to the gym or pool. Today I feel well rested and am getting ready to go do the recumbent bike, swim, then whirlpool and exercise my knees in the warm water, too.

Last week I managed to do water aerobics for 3 hours. This week my goal is 4 hours.

Acceptance versus frustration....

Saturday, March 13, 2010

I slept in (until 7:30, I'm usually up by 4:30). I missed my water aerobics class but decided it is just as well as the bouncing in the shallow end of the pool just would be a killer on my feet today. I am going to do solo water aerobics at the deep end. I spent 3 hours in the pool doing exercises this week and today will be the 4th hour. I know it helps and I have to do it or I will build up scar tissue in my knees.

I went to hand therapy yesterday and have to work on scar massage from my Dec 29th CTR and trigger thumb release surgeries. I also have some exercises to do to get strength back in my hand and though hand exercises don't sound like much work my muscles are weak and lazy from taking it easy for 2 months.

I have decided as far as getting the other hand surgery done on the left it is just as well to wait because I need "one pretty good hand" in order to work, drive, etc. So that will probably not be until 2011.

And the same goes for getting the second knee replacement...(has to wait) and perhaps it is part of some "divine plan" that I can't have it right away. I have had sore knees for about 20 years, what's one more?

    You are in my thoughts and prayers. Surgery is such a huge stressful undertaking.

    Bummer but at least you haven't been told you can't have the surgery. Waiting is tough but you are tougher.
