Sorry I have been MIA, had a couple set backs this past week.
Woke up Tuesday Morning with extreme pain in lower back and wrapped around to front of right side. As I figured it was a kidney stone. BUT wasn't just a kidney stone. apparently it had blocked up the tube that goes from the kidneys to the bladder...well this is the same tube that when I was a baby I had to have surgery to get them to open it up more because I couldn't pee and this 4 mm stone was stuck in there. So I had a severe urinary tract infection and a kidney stone. I was in the hospital for 3 days, (nurses need a course on how to use a needle for the iv...they screwed my arm up and now it is super swollen and hard and sore. My cousin who is a nurse said it would be for a lil bit and what they probably did was push the needle all the way through my vain (which is a large noticable vein) then tried to catch it again and that's why they were wiggling it everywhere. ugh!)
And being laid up for a week not being able to do anything I gained like 7 pounds but they were flushing me so much...my hands were so swollen I couldn't make a fist. Once I got home I took a fluid pill and drank loads of water (I was on a liquid diet) and managed to get the 7 pounds of water weight off before my weigh in but no loss or gain.
I am super proud of myself today because I did NOT press the snooze button whatsoever this morning (this has been an ongoing battle and I am winning now dagnabit)...alarm went off at 4:30, I thought about pressing snooze but said no you need to go on and do your WATP...so I did...I get my 3 miles in this morning and I have curves this afternoon. The walking is what will help my lower stomach. Going to watch the eats well this week. no fast food or sweets or fried. stay within my ranges. I want that scale to move Sunday. LOL!!
Also for the first time in a long time I actually went out and had grown up fun...not the mother fun...a great friend of my from HS and I haven't seen each other in like 20 years...she insisted that since I had been in hospital for a week and had my uncle memorial she didn't want me home depressed and not doing anything. So I went out to the bar and danced my tookas off and had a fantabulous time...I always get in this rut of not doing anything when I don't have my son, I just get caught up on clothes and such...well a friend of mine brought it to my attention, not that I didn't already know but she was like you need to get out and have fun, how are you going to meet anyone...so that had me thinking because I am not doing the dating online sites anymore, those well those I have met have mostly wanted one thing and they ain't getting any here. There is just too much drama that I don't need. I know deep in my heart that God has someone for me, it's just one of us isn't quite as ready as God wants us to be so we can meet...if that makes sense...and it's probably me. I have changed my focus, I am going to continue to go to church and maybe get more involved because I do sing and love to. I am going to really focus hard on my eats and exercising (but not OCD). and playing with my son and making sure he has a fun filled life. When the time is right it will happen. All these other men who are playing the game...well they need to put on their running shoes...I will show them how it's played and they can get to stepping in the opposite direction!!
Hope everyone has a blessed day!!
