The sun is shining and I'm going for a walk.

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

After the freezing came out of the mri guided cortisone to shoulder injection, I took a couple of days to feel myself again. Friday wasn't as bad a pain day as I feared, although it was bad I was prepared. I had planned to take it easy that day, but Saturday was non-stop activity. There was a dinner out at the pub, with 50 other geocachers, where the best shepherds pie on the planet was devoured, with loads of yummy wine. ;) Earlier that day, after getting downtown early to browse the stores and hit chinatown for lunch, we were at the theater watching the school production of Guys and Dolls. It was a whirlwind day in my new size 6 pants and new shoes. I had an active day on Sunday too, 15000+ steps mostly WIO.

Also on the weekend, I did up the button on my old skinny jeans. Sheesh, it's been a long haul to get here and I'm not there yet. Though the button is done up it will be a few pounds before enough circulation is allowed.

By Monday I felt well enough to really get some distance under my feet resulting in an all-time record day (since December when fitbit came into my life) of 21575 steps! This included an hour of WIO, a walk around the neighbourhood, and 66 minutes; a full-length class of Wii Zumba2. I also spent 30 minutes doing program #5 on the stationary bike, but that isn't counted as steps.

I kind of crashed on Tuesday and didn't have the energy to get past 9565 steps.

Today I'm going to hit the park before 9:30am for a 3km walk.

Also today, I got on the scale and ... ta da..... 135.6! I am so close to that last 10 pounds I can hardly believe it. However, I've learned to not allow myself emotional energy about a number. So, it just is what it is. ;) ;)

Here is my 30 day distance graph in kilometers:

Food wise, except for dinner out once in February and once in March, so far, I'm sticking pretty close to 1300 cals/day over 5 or 6 meals/snacks. I load up my morning and lunch with protein and by the time dinner is finished I'm done eating for the day which is a good thing because, like many others, I have a death wish to snack before bed.

So, that's what's news with me and I look forward to hearing all the news with you, my spark friends, without whom the skinny jeans would never have happened.

    I'm giving an exam at the moment, and trying to be good and quiet. Then I read your blog, and hit the part about "circulation" with the button closed on your skinny jeans, and let out the most embarrassing squeak/laugh. I distracted my students. Bad Missifish! Bad Missifish!

    Too funny. Thanks for the giggle. I know you'll be circulating with that button closed soon!
