First, I need to whine a little. I am STILL having pain in my hands and right knee from my fall!! It has been a month!!! What is up with this??? I will say they are better but still painful!! Really???? I am so old it takes this long to heal? Yeah, well I'm over this!! I want pain free!!
I have gotten back to exercise on a regular basis. Pretty much in my old routine...walking 4 days a week. ST 2 days a week. And, no one will be surprised to hear, I'm feeling better!! I purchased a hypnotherapy CD for exercise motivation. Not sure it's really helped with that but I have not been able to do the sessions as faithfully as I should. It does seem to give me more energy though. Placebo or actual, I'll take it. I thought it might encourage me to continue with the exercise when I lose all motivation. So I'm exercising and tracking!! WooHoo!
Which brings me to the "self-sabotage" from my last blog. I had many friends respond that it really doesn't matter WHY I do it; just to know that I do it! Thinking about that, I believe you're right. I may have that self discovery or I may not but in the end it doesn't matter. Just plow through it. I can tend to be a "navel gazer" and I know I could use this "reason for self sabotage" seeking as a way to avoid even more exercise!
So, I'm not worrying why--just doing it. Hence, the hypnotherapy CD in an effort to keep going! Thanks for everyone's insights!
And, now we are at the end of my daughter's pregnancy and the agonizing final days of waiting. I have packed a bag and taken it to her spare bedroom. I have toiletries lined up and ready to throw in a bag. I have my list of odds and ends that I need to throw in last minute. So where's the baby?? Her "doctor due date" is next Saturday but all along she has said she thinks today is her due date. Geez! Her next appt is Thursday and if she's still around they will schedule an induction.
Now, here's the deal. My hubby is leaving town on business Monday evening and will return Thursday night. If she has baby while Grandpa is gone I have to take my dog and his stuff with me. Oh, I would love to avoid that! He's an easy guy; sleeps a lot but still one more complication with the 2 kids and their dog!!! So, as much as I want that baby here safe and sound, maybe next weekend would be better. Would you believe he's leaving town the next week also? I've given my daughter very narrow time frames to have this baby. LOL She is very cranky at this stage of the game and doesn't see any humor in anything!!
They did not find out the gender and have struggled with names. They may have to give baby a number!!!
