Ok one and all I am coming back to Sparks after being gone almost a year. Yes you heard correctly. I gained all the weight I lost back over the last year. Will be starting from scratch, as they say.
The last year has not been a good for me. The stress of home remodeling took its tole on me and I went into a depression, funk like state. Not wanting to do much of anything, I wasn't feeling well because of my ankle injury. I bowled on winter and summer league but had to leave because my ankle couldn't take the pain anymore. I had surgery in Dec. 2012, was in a cast for 2 weeks and got the ok to exercise at the end of March, 2013.
One problem is that whenever I do anything hiking over 2-3 miles I suffer greatly for the following 3-5 days. I get so much pain in my legs and lower back I can barely stand or walk. I will discuse this with my Rhuematologist at my next visit. I know I could go early but once I feel better, I know it isn't a Lupus Flare because the pain would not go away. I keep walking and moving as much as possible during that time frame but I end up taking a lot of Tylenol which does do the trick for pain. I am unable to take IBprofen type stuff because of kidney dysfunction. Hubby thinks is RA acting up and maybe they will have to start putting me on some type of RA meds. I have so much bad luck with drugs reactions, there is not a lot I can take.
The home remodeling is suppose to be done by end of May/early June. Crossing my fingers. I keep worrying about things your can change. Namely Money, Money and more Money. for those not familiar with my you can find old blogs from around June 2011 - June 2012 with titles like home construction ext. for those interested in seeing what the old house looked like. I will be posted new pics soon. I haven't even upload pics from my camera in over a year. lol So finally this 2 years project will be mostly done. Of course the husband wants to do the rest of the house in about a year. Ouch! I am so over this house redo. lol Ok by for now. Hope you all have a nice weekend.
Now that my laptop is fixed I will be on here hopefully a few times a week, if not everyday.
This picture was taken last weekend with my hubby. Shows how much weight I gained. Ouch!

    Have you tried walking stick? They aid in walking and they will keep you from swinging side to side which is not good for the joints

    Have bounced up and am struggling too. Your RA must be such a challenge, but hey, together with your SparkFamily we can DO IT! :-)

    Glad to have you back. Your hubby looks much happier about the remodeling than you do, that's for sure! But men usually are because they don't have to look at the bills that need to be paid every day. That is why I am thankful I now have the money to pay the bills at my house and my parents can concentrate one fixing, not remodeling. FIXING is a whole other ballgame with a much longer list! LOL!

    I too had to start all over after regaining 70 lbs. This is the LAST time I will lose this weight because i REFUSE to regain it all again. I am sorry that the house redo was so hard on you. I hope you are ahead of all of that now (or rather that it's behind you :) ) I hope your RA is not the culprit. I know what you mean about being in pain when you walk. I had both hips replaced and now can't stand to walk for longer than two minutes. NOT a good feeling!
    Dig in. Get your feet wet.
    ANd let the games begin!
