My laptop has had open heart surgery... new hard drive. My hubby has graciously shared his laptop as needed to do some work and to check in here at SP, but we've been spoiled each having our own. I should get it back tomorrow or Saturday... none too soon!
I have a bulged disk in my neck. I noticed it first with tingling down my arm, then it has progressed to the point I am - like today - with a major headache! I had PT for a month - and it really helped, but now 2 weeks later, it seems like I haven't progressed at all. Went to the pain clinic for a shot 2 wks ago, but found out there that my insurance requires prior authorization and 4 wks of PT - so he consulted (tho' he's leaving the practice and a new guy is coming in next week) and started the ins stuff. The insurance has 3 wks to approve it, but then with the new dr's schedule, my appt is Dec 11... :-/ The dr I saw said if it's too bad, call and say that I need it earlier and they should be able to accommodate my request...
We didn't have heat this past weekend... a blessing and a curse... It got downright cold in here, then we started a fireplace fire in the living room just before baby came, and I love the fireplace! I moved my recliner right next to it! It snowed Monday! Love it! Especially if I'm inside next to the fireplace! Definitely a warm fuzzy day!
Still busy with grandbabies... especially the 9 mo old.
He helps me do strength training... I lift him over my head 10 times... and he's HEAVY - over 20 lbs! and he's getting heavier as we go... Also, I set him on my ankles and lift him 20 x each ankle, and then on my knee, lifting the knee 20 x each leg. It's doing something because my muscles are sore - especially in my legs! lol I do it several times a day when I have him (up to 5 x a week).
I've tracked almost every day for over a week! An improvement.
Still working on getting to the water drinking... and cardio.... my relatively new scale is not functioning... so not sure what's going on... pretty status quo I think.
Have a great weekend! Hubby's going to babysit grandkids (5 yr old, 4 yr old, and 9 mo old) at their house tonight and tomorrow, and then they come here Fri night through Sun a.m.
