Merry Xmas and have a fantastic 2012.

I have been having a lot of fun in the last few days playing with the grandies. Lots of strength work because they have been jumping at me and I have been catching them and I am not sore. I thought I would have had trouble with my back tbut that is fine. Touch wood. LOL.

I have been doing a lot of walking but I am all ready for tomorrow. All we need now is a cool change as it is very hot here today about the 110F.

All the best

love
Wendy emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

wow where has the time gone. Three more sleeps until Xmas and I am getting excited. The grandies came over yesterday so I have already had a ball playing with them. I know I have so much healthier and fitter than I was, still have a long way to go. The kids have been running and jumping at me and I can manage to catch them now. They tried this once before and I nearly fell over just had no strength.

I have learnt more things lately, like I can not have leg ham any more. Even though I only had a 50 gram pce, it put my sodium level up too high.

Also learnt since I have had my pedometer how little I walk. I am averaging about 5000 to 6000 steps per day. Funny I am more active now yet not active enough still.

first small goal, no ham.

So my goals for the next month is to get the steps up to an average of 7000 steps. This I hope to achieve by the end on January 2012.

Keep playing with the grandies.

Mery Xmas and a very Happy New year. May all your dreams come true in 2012.

love
Wendy emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It really isn't worth the trouble it causes, is it. Maybe you could substitute some lean fresh pork... I can't, if it's not the salty processed stuff it literally makes me ill. It's ham and bacon or nothing at all, so...
emoticon

But there are worse things, and you and I both know we'd rather give up the ham than go through dialysis! LOL

I'm so glad for you, when I think back to where you started when you first joined us... I am amazed, what a wonderful, determined and vital person you are!

Merry Christmas, dear friend!

    HI Wendy, how wonderful to hear you have been having such a wonderful time with your grandkids - and great that you are keeping up with them! Woo Hoo! It's incredible the things we keep learning, such as needing to stop eating ham - I hope you can keep your sodium levels under control so your kidneys have less strain. You are doing so well - I can hardly walk at all at the moment, let alone 5000 steps...will post an updated blog in the near future.

Take care of yourself and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year, and a happy and healthy 2012!

Love and blessings, Nattacia

    Merry Christmas Wendy,

I see you are having the same issues as I am. Ctemple is right. Leslie Sansone has great walking dvd's out there. I used the one where you can do 1 or 2 miles. I've done the 1 mile a number of times before and tried the 2 mile yesterday. I got my steps up to 9400 between that and shopping at at warehouse store and other errands with my husband. Keep up the good work. Learning is part of the process and it looks like you've learned alot. Have fun with your Grandies. Maybe they can join you as you walk away the pounds.

    Ah yes! Keep walking and increase the steps a few each day. It helps. I love my pedometer. Keeps me moving!

Sounds like a wonderful, beautiful Christmas for you with all the treimmings! Funny you should mention ham. That's what Mom wants for christmas dinner, so I am making it, but going to be making 3 different veggies and a salad, so that will be what I concentrate on as the ham throws my sodium for a loop too!

Have a wonderful holiday! You are amazing. emoticon

    Oh Wendy, I can't have ham either because it doesn't agree with me. Still not one of my fav things, now if we're talking christmas mince pies and my home made superb cake, yes I feel deprived but such is life.
Did you ever consider using one of those walking dvds ( walking on the spot), like Lesley Sansone's ones? It would add steps to your day ( the ones for beginners).

Ham is no big deal NOT to have. I don't think I could do without my turkey tho'. emoticon

You're doing just great and have done so very well this year. emoticon

Me? Well, I've finished with about the same weight that I was this time last year, but I have good plans for 2012 and hope to reach my goal weight by the time I see you next year.

So, you're my incentive. I've gotta look great for you when we meet.

Hi everyone, thank you for your lovely comments on my last blog, they were very much appreciated.

I had a loss for the week 800 grams 1lb 7 oz. First time I have lost anything in a while so I am very pleased. emoticon
It has been hard work.

I have had a lovely day, my grandies are over again, third weekend in the row, so lucky but I don't think they will be over for a fortnight. We had a ball just playing around. I will try to get them before Xmas, well I am hoping to.

Hi everyone, been to the Nephrologist specialist, I think it is positive. I have finally a name for the kidney disease I have, it is Alports which is familial problem, Before it has been anyone of about 4 different CKD. Asked if my sons have been tested and I said yes a while ago and because they are 32 and 26 and show no signs, they have both been cleared because males shows signs when they are teenagers. So great news for them and a relief for me because I have always been worried if I have passed it on to them.

My recent blood tests that I had have all shown a small improvement. Commented on the ones in September and asked what happened then and I told him that we don't know. So he is happy because he now knows what he has to work with.

I do now need to see him every 2 months for the next year instead of every 3 months but that okay because he come here so I do not have to travel.

So all is good and I am happy.

Been very busy today shopping trying to get organised for Xmas.

Alports is not a nice thing to have but you are sounding really positive which is a great thing. I hope it can always be kept under control and you can live a reasonably normal life.
