thank you everyone, it did surprise me to see all those steps. I still aim to build it up slow so that I can keep on improving again. My goals at the moment is 2 times per week. I would rather aim for that than end up where I was in the last few weeks. I am going to be like a turtle so I can win the race.

Re: my son, the answer is no. He is now having anxiety attacks since being bashed, he is not in a good place. I also think there now is some depression. He is missing his children so much and wondering wht is happening to them. Not a good situation to be in.

We are trying everything we can to try to get access to his children. Although this may be a long drawn out process, which again is not going to help my son.

This all makes me more determined to be stronger, healthier and fitter so that I can be of help to him, in his time of need. I also need to be mentally stronger and pull from my memory all that I ahd learnt in the past when I was at University.

so this all being said I need to look after me so that I can be of use to everyone else. emoticon

    Keep yourself well and anxiety after an attack like that is normal. Not sure why son can't see son if someone like that is in the home. Hope he gets to see kids soon.

    MOTLEM said it all -- you DO have the guts and determinitaion to win and help your son win. Prayers and hugs. Stay strong. So sorry to hear that these horrid feelings are afflicting your son, though honestly -- who would expect anything less after such trauma has been inflicted on him. **SIGH** Life just isn't fair.

You are so determined and your steps are amazing. emoticon

wow the time is going so fast. went to exercises today, really enjoyed them and the first time I have really pushed myself again. Even the instructor commented on how well I went. This is the first time since the physio disaster.
Even got to 11,663 steps today, again first time since the disaster.

I miss these classes when I don't go. Can't always go to these as my Specialist's appointments seems to fall on Thursday.

Good night/morning everyone

Saturday, June 30, 2012

I did meet some of my goals for June.

i did have a horrible month, some things happened in my family that were very traumatic. This concerned my son and his children. All I will say is he was bashed up when he went to get his children to bring them over for their fortnightly weekend. He ended up in hospital overnight. Still getting over the shock of it now. The guy has been charged with assault. But of course we will not see the children anymore until this is all sorted out.

I did lose 1.9kgs for the month which I am pleased about but still not done to where I was before. Will get there one day LOL.

So the plans are for this month is do what I can, when I can and not to stress over this when i can't do it.

I do plan to lose 2 kgs this month again. I am taking this one day at the time for a little while.

Eating has been very good. I am proud of where I am with in myself. Even with what happened I did not overeat.

I have given myself a lot of credit for what i have achieved. I am amazing. So proud of myself.

Thanks for all the support I have been given over my time on Sparks. It has been great. Keep on Sparking as I am going to.

    Wendy, I'm truly sorry for the family problems. . .I know that's so hard for you as you love your Grandies so much. I pray it will all be sorted out quickly.

I am so glad you somehow managed to lose weight with your additional stress. I know you are determined and will make your month's goals. So many of us are rooting for your success.

Take really good care of yourself and do things you really enjoy!

Love,

Jill

    Glad you met some goals, and have lost weight.

Family problems are horrible. I have had 2 sons go through divorce - and the children and the father's seems to come off worst. Hang in there.

You are being very positive about doing what you can and not to stress.

Hugs to you.

    You are amazing and a great leader - you are doing so well - 1.9 kegs for the month is excellent - that would be almost 24 kgs in a year - amazing. You are really learning not to let difficult emotional situations affect your eating - that is HUGE!! You deserve all the success you have achieved - well done! I hope that your home situation is resolved soon and you can see your brandies - I know how special they are to you and I am sure they are also missing their visits to you. Hugs to you

    So proud of how you are doing. Hope ds is doing better. I feel bad he can't see his kids until this is all sorted out. Not fair that he is being punished because of what happened. Too bad the kids can't be taken out of that situation if they are being exposed to someone that dangerous. Hope that guy is out of the house now.
1.9 kg is close to your goal and you should be proud of yourself.
Hope life calms down for you soon. emoticon

It has taken me all this time to start feeling better. I went back to exercises yesterday for the first time since all this started 1 1/2 weeks ago. Still have not got to 10,000 steps a day as yet. I'm trying to take things slowly so that I can build myself up again to where I was before.

Will not let these professionals tell me what to do anymore. I do know my body and what I can do with it.


Thank you everyone that responded to my last blog.

    Hi Wendy, I'm really glad your feeling much better. I don't always take my Dr's advice as he'd have me on 15 different RXs as tends to be a "pill pusher". Otherwise he's a good Dr. but like you said I also need to be my own advocate and read up on my different medical issues as I might have more recent information that he has. Pace yourself with exercise and gradually work up to where you left on 2 weeks ago. Please give yourself lots of TLC!

Love,

Jill
