A week of doings ... Merry Christmas
Saturday, December 01, 2012
Well it is has been a week of up and downs . My last blog tells you of the downs. So lets move past that one. On Monday Dr. T took my crutches and boot. He said to proceed with caution because I am not completely healed yet but I am getting there a head of schedule .. They upped my pt this week adding some things that well kinda shocked me a bit . Leg presses and squats some with the bapps board ( painful stay away ) . I have a wonderful Pt staff so I am sure I will be back up to speed before long . Since the upped my pt I was thinking hmm maybe I can up my home workout . Now dont gasp and yell I am not killing myself .. I have added more crunches , resistant bands with weights , oh and yes squats with mild walking in place . Also I am using my cardio fit ( like a rowing machine) for a full 30 minutes at a time . Instead of the 3 ten minute sessions .. different burn all together . I need the burn I want the burn .. But I am very happy to say that after 10 weeks on the lovely couch recouping I have not had any kind of substantial gain . I have gains but these gains are from medicine and fluid so it isnt permanent. Hence proving to me that I have indeed made a significant Change in my life. Not just dieting . Yesterday I decided to challenge my self to a 100 day fitness streak meaning I will exercise everyday for 60 plus minutes .
I am doubtful that I will make it to 266 by 1/1/2013 but if not then I will because i wont quit .
Now completely on a different subject kinda lol. Last night was the first night that the park light display was open. You can drive part of it but it is better to walk it ... Christmas lights always make me think of my mother . She is passed away but never forgotten . She so loved Christmas and everything about it. But to watch see the lights was always like watching a small child for the first time. It is through the lights that have the most wonderful memories of her . The twinkle and gleam make me think of her smile. The running bouncing lights remind of her laughter. The lighted stars on the trees make believe she is now having wonderful Christmas's with Christ. The balls on the trees remind how dainty and beautiful she was. And the tinsel Is the love that she showered over a world that was never the same after she left its hard ground . With Christmas there is a generosity that we should share and be joyous, sometimes that is hard but for me as much as I miss her , I want her to look down and see me doing what she always did just loving my neighbors and family with an unconditional love that no gift can ever take the place of .
These are just a few of the pics .. it is hard to capture them with a camera because most to the lights move. but it truly is something to see .. I will have to go back because i could only walk about a 1/4 of mile before my foot went out .. the whole exhibit is about a mile from beginning to end.
What Christmas would be complete without Santa and Frosty lol
In memory of my mom ... wish you could see me now Your arms would finally fit around me again .. sorry it took so long but better late than never ...
Happy Holidays everyone !!! Be kind and love with all your heart !!!
