Today seems a little bit harder in my healing process! wahaaaa!

Thursday, September 12, 2013

So, I thought I would blog about it. I have gained 3# since Sunday's fall. That means i am 6# over goal. NOT ACCEPTABLE! Because I have to slow WAY down I can actually see how I gained the 50# in the first place! I can see where the old patterns came from. BUT NOW, I love to exercise. I don't even think of it AS exercise, walking Lucy pup, swimming, zumba, even flash mob! Hiking, Pilates is the closet to exercise I do. I can't get up from the floor so none of that, either. Today I did SP Nicole's sitting core video, 2 times, at least I can keep my core remembering to stay engaged! 6# is allot for me. I feel sluggish, & actually fat! I don,t weigh myself everyday, instead I use other forms to show me my body size. How my zumba clothes fit, bras, panties, etc. Since I can't put any of these things on, It is hard to judge. It has only been 4 days, but I can tell the difference, already. I also can't prepare food.... no knifes, can openers, jars, etc. So for the most part I am eating veggies, chicken dogs.... high salt things as I was needing to go to the store the day of the fall. D* did go shopping, but he doesn't know I eat 2 apples a day, lots of spinisach for Smoothies, etc. He also can't lift since back surgery, I'm the physical person in the house! He really tried, I love him for that!!!!

This blog is depressing me even more, I think I will go back & meditate & remember the great things in my world! Thank for reading & commenting..... I very rarely get down.... sorry about that!

    Hang in there!
First, it's not all real weight! emoticon
It's water from the high sodium foods plus the changes in digestion because your body isn't moving!
Sending healing thoughts your way....

    Hey SparklingOne! I'm sorry you're having a low day! You're entitled to complain -- you're among friends, remember? And speaking of friends -- I just noticed that I somehow missed adding you -- I hope you don't mind. I already consider you my friend!
Patience is tough when you're in pain and feeling antsy -- but you're going to get there, Girl! I know you will!

    This to shall pass sweet darling!! It's important to remember this is only a temporary set back. At least you can still walk right...and swim right? It's the PITS not having your major hand/arm to help you through your day...but remember when you are forced to use your non dominant hand/arm it rewires new pathways to your brain and that helps prevent Alzheimer's so that's a good thing right?

It's also so important to concentrate on the fact that the fall wasn't worse than what it was and that you have a flexible work schedule that let's you accommodate your situation...think if you had late night marionette shows you had to do every night in Vegas...not good...not good at all.

Are there any physical therapy movements you can do to help the healing come along?

Vit C really helps your healing and Acacia (I think that's correct) helps with soreness and bruising.

Don't stress yourself over the weight gain its only temporary and you will peel it right off once you get back to your former activity levels.

Just don't push yourself too soon and risk re injury...I know you are a firecracker and this is a hard situation but I know you will learn something awesome from the lesson..Maybe it's that your life was becoming too frenetic and you need some down time to relax a little.
I'm cheering you on and sending white light and healing love!!! emoticon emoticon

    I hope writing helped you focus. I have MS and when I have an exacerbation, it is easy to gain weight and is depressing. You seem to me to be very physically active so this must be a miserable. You haven't lost you focus so I believe you will be back to what you live soon. Hang in there. emoticon emoticon

Love, Chelsea emoticon emoticon
