YES - I Slept Like A Log!
Friday, March 27, 2009      3 comments

I slept like I was dead last night until about 3 a.m.! WooHoo! The doctor gave me a new medication for the muscles in my back and it knocked my young (lol) butt right out! I think the easing of the pain let my tired body rest for a little whi... Read more

I Went Into The Water Today!
Tuesday, March 24, 2009      4 comments

The good news is that I went into the water today. I did a deep water type workout so that my feet didn't touch the bottom. I was able to do about 80 minutes before I pooped out with fatigue. The not so great news is that I broke out in a ras... Read more

The Water Was Great!

The water was wonderful and it made me feel invigorated! I stayed in about 90 minutes. I both swam and did a bike riding motion by balancing on a noodle. I also worked with water weights. It wasn't particularly hard to keep my feet off the b... Read more
Off to Water Exercise
Monday, March 16, 2009      3 comments

At last the day has come when I can go to play/exercise in the pool. I won't be participating in water aerobics but rather splashing around on my own; trying to exercise without putting my sore foot on the bottom of the pool. I will follow it ... Read more
Boundaries

One of my goals for this week is to put into place boundaries and to do so without getting angry or frustrated with other people. This is not as easy as it sounds however. My whole life I've felt like I have to justify every decision and every... Read more
Good News and Bad News
Friday, March 13, 2009      4 comments

I had my foot doctor's appointment yesterday. The good news is that my heel bone is healing very well. The bad news is that just as we expected, I have strained my Achilles tendon. This means that although I can go back into the water (YES!) ... Read more

Tomorrow our county team (Polk County, Florida) is having their second team walk. We're meeting at 9 a.m. at Lake Bonnie. The first walk was kind of a bust - I was in a boot and couldn't do it and the other leader showed up but everyone else b... Read more
