It's the Climb

Wednesday, August 19, 2009      7 comments

I'm so grateful to have had the opportunity to drive my GS to his many activities this summer. It's amazing how busy an eight year old can be. I don't remember my now adult sons having such busy schedules when they were little boys. ANYWAY... ... Read more

Facebook Junky :-(

Tuesday, August 04, 2009      4 comments

In only a week I found something else to fixate on. I've been having fun playing some of the facebook games, three in particular. Farm Town, Farmville, and Yoville. As if my schedule isn't busy enough, taking my GS to all of his activities AND d... Read more

Getting Stronger Every Day

Thursday, July 02, 2009      2 comments

Today was the first day that I allowed myself to do some light jogging in the pool during water aerobics. I increased the intensity as the class progressed and I believe I am getting a stronger core. The nerve is still letting me know to take i... Read more

Taking it Easy Ain't Easy

Wednesday, June 17, 2009      3 comments

The water felt so good today. I was so glad to see familiar faces in the water aerobics class. As agreed, I took it very easy, in spite of what I was told to do by our new instructor. When I arrived about a half-hour early, I used the nood... Read more

Ready for the Water - YES!!!

Tuesday, June 16, 2009      2 comments

My physical therapist has cleared me for water and home exercise workouts. I still need to be gentle with my back and not do any jarring exercises in or out of the water: no jumping jacks, water jogging, running, etc. I'm looking forward to... Read more

...I Got to Keep on Moving (forward)

Saturday, June 13, 2009      3 comments

Okay, so on Thursday after my learning about my pinched nerve injury, I pleaded for help from my SparkPeople friends and was gently reminded to stay focused on the big picture: Getting and staying healthy. Prior to the pinched nerve and bursitis... Read more

HELP!!!

Thursday, June 11, 2009      2 comments

I'm so confused! The doctor says to do only what I can and stop when it hurts. That with therapy the nerve will heal with time (2 months). The physical therapist says don't do anything until Tuesday when I'm reassessed for the new PT order I got... Read more

Adding Insult to Injury :-(

Wednesday, June 10, 2009      1 comments

I saw the head PT today after my water work, and she's identified the source of my pain as being a pinched nerve at the base of my spine. The burser may be a little inflamed but the back is the primary source. So, she treated me with heat,... Read more

Minimizing my Downsizing :-(

Monday, June 08, 2009      2 comments

I was really on a roll there. I thought I would take a little break from my exercise routine, but my plan of resting for only a weekend... Well, let's just say the length of my rest is up to my body. At first I thought I had overworked som... Read more

WOOHOO!!! Run Down and None to Go!

Wednesday, June 03, 2009      3 comments

The day I've been training for for the past four weeks started with a whimper and ended with a bang! I had an early PT appt today. Usually I do PT in the afternoon after my water work. But today, the Inaugural National Day of Running, it ju... Read more

Beginning a New Challenge - WHEW!!!

Tuesday, June 02, 2009      4 comments

I'm thinking of an old gospel song my mother used to sing; "No, no, no! I'm not tired yet!" You'd think that after 30 days of intense workouts and challenges I would be ready for a rest. But, no, I decided to follow in the footsteps of one of my... Read more

Final Day of S2S Boot Camp! - WooHoo!!!

Saturday, May 30, 2009      1 comments

Four Weeks of intense quick workouts and stimulating challenges and the Sweatsuit - Swimsuit Boot Camp made an athlete out of me. I may be a long way from meeting my weight-loss goal, and don't get me wrong, I'm grateful for the 24 pounds and 2 ... Read more

Running in Water - YESSSS!!!

Wednesday, May 27, 2009      1 comments

For the past couple of weeks or so I've been going to the pool 30-45 minutes before my water aerobics class so I can get in some water jogging. PT advises me not to do any land running yet, but I really want to participate in the Inaugeral Natio... Read more

Boot Camp, PT and Me - WHEW!!!

Tuesday, May 26, 2009      2 comments

My whole body is feeling the burn tonight. The boot camp workout focused on my upper body. Physical Therapy focused on my lower body. Water aerobics and water jogging worked me from head to toe. So, I am really feeling it today. I hope I'm ... Read more
