New Outlook 10/11/11

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

Our life has been in transition since June of this year. We listed our house the end of April, sold it in 6 weeks, and had to be out 6 weeks later...but there was nothing out there that we really liked, so we moved in with the in-laws (wonderful people) and continued working with a builder hoping that we'd find a house and not have to invest ourselves in the expense and effort of building...but here we are and we're in the 2nd week of building. We should be in the new house, the house of our dreams, by Valentines Day. Wow! It's almost like I can belieive it's a reality. But...with living with someone else goes, so went my treadmill...into storage, and did I mention that I had a severe case of plantar fascitous? I probably spelled that wrong. Anyway I finally saw a doc about it and got a referral to a podiatrist and after 3 months he finally shot me up with cortizone in both feet. Now 2 weeks later, my feet are good as new. Why didn't I do this a year ago, yes .. they've hurt that long. I can be so stubborn and stupid sometimes. The other thing with living with someone else is How do you eat healthy when they think that eggs get fried in crisco, and they save their bacon grease to flavor green beans? I'm trying though. I just need to try harder and get rid of the treats!!

I know what I need to do. I've put it off for too long. I contacted a friend of mine. She's a personal trainer and she's putting together a weight lifting program for me including video's which will come in very helpful. With the cold weather coming I've been back to storage and brought back the DVD player...I'll be doing video's every night..soon as my wonderful hubby gets me hooked up. I know perfection isn't an option. I have to accept that. I need to take steps in the right direction no matter how small. I want to be a better me when we move into our new home. I CAN STILL DO THIS!!

    Wow....what a lot you've had going on!! Glad your feet are feeling better! Hope your steps in the right direction is going well...I seem to be struggling quite frequently trying to stay on track, but like you...perfection isn't in my vocab...just continued better health.

    Hurray! Our new house is tiny, but it's ours, and we love it! You will be so thrilled when you get to move in! I've been gone a week to visit my daughter in Chicago, but I'm back and glad to be home! Have a great week! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I don't envy your situation with living with your in-laws, but it will be worth it in the end.

    I think my daughter has plantar fascitious, the gp keeps on telling her to take extra strength tylenol. Maybe I need to get firm with him.
