Lazy day of recovery

Monday, May 25, 2015      9 comments

Cooper and I both needed a day to relax today. I got up around 8am, had a glass of water, looked at him still asleep in bed... and decided to join him. We both got up around 11am. I took him for a short walk, because that is all he was willin... Read more

Prudence is a good thing...

Sunday, May 24, 2015      7 comments

I was a little disappointed with my walk today. I went about half the distance as the last time I tried this route. I walked about 27 miles in around 6.5 hours. Not bad, but not nearly what I planned for the day. Grrr... So, it seems like t... Read more

Taking it easy

Saturday, May 23, 2015      8 comments

Taking it easy means something different to every person. For me it means three good walks with the dog, 100 squats, and a few other ST exercises, some yoga, and a little time with the stepper. Some would think that is a lot, and others woul... Read more

PT and preparations

Friday, May 22, 2015      8 comments

I walked with Cooper and my middle niece this morning, then she stayed at my apartment to dogsit while I went to PT. They did traction on my neck again. Immediately afterwards the headache is worse, but it eases overnight. It isn't so bad tod... Read more

Achieving little things

Thursday, May 21, 2015      7 comments

Got stuff accomplished today, but I felt a little off-kilter all day. I am not certain if it is a result of the injections yesterday or TOM. Either one would do it, but both? Almost guaranteed to knock me for a loop. I have been checking the... Read more

Neurologist appointment...

Wednesday, May 20, 2015      14 comments

Going to the neurologist takes up a large chunk of my day. I left my place before 1pm, and didn't get home until 5pm. And the appointment itself only took about 15 minutes! The rest is driving time. Dad drove me today as Jeremy was working. ... Read more

I was moving for most of the day. Some with Cooper, and some without. I have been doing a little ST almost every day for the past week or so. I haven't decided if I prefer that or doing an intense workout that is longer in length on alternati... Read more

Visiting with my niece...

Monday, May 18, 2015      9 comments

I got in a walk with Cooper and went and got my bloodwork done (for the third time this month, because my levels are wonky), and then my niece, Tigan, called to ask if I wanted to go spend the afternoon with mom. I agreed. We had a lovely vis... Read more

Movie day

Sunday, May 17, 2015      7 comments

I went to see Avengers with my BFF, Jen, this afternoon. and I am probably going to pitch perfect with my niece, Tigan, this evening. Also did 3 dog walk, 2.5 hours on the bike, and some ST and yoga. ... Read more

Ugh, insomnia again last night. I was functioning on no sleep today. Glad I didn't have to drive. Mom and dad picked me up this morning as they were out running errands. I still don't have access to a car, but that is okay. It is good to wa... Read more

PT and dinner out... future goal

Friday, May 15, 2015      10 comments

I went out for dinner again tonight. This time I went with my neighbor. We went to my favorite restaurant, because I can generally find something healthy to eat there. I had a cup of tomato florentine soup, and a steak and blue cheese salad. ... Read more

I lost at Trivia

Thursday, May 14, 2015      12 comments

Our team had a perfect score heading into Round 3 tonight, but we fell all the way to fourth place in that final round. I guess we got complacent. Oh well. It was fun, and that is what really counts. I think it is good for me to get out with... Read more

Will it freeze tonight?

Wednesday, May 13, 2015      14 comments

There was a freeze warning issued for our area tonight. It was cold enough to warrant a light weight winter coat today when I walked the dog. I refuse to close my windows though. I will just put an extra blanket on the bed. It isn't really s... Read more


Tuesday, May 12, 2015      8 comments

In yesterday's blog I mentioned a ketogenic diet. Not as "a diet", but as a new way of eating for the rest of my life. I know this is a lifestyle change, and that is how I have approached it for nearly 4 years (or is it 5? I can't remember. ... Read more

Storm's a comin'

Monday, May 11, 2015      9 comments

I got Cooper out for his last walk just as the storm started rolling in. We were actually walking up to the door as it started pouring. We are supposed to get a severe thunderstorm with high winds and hail. Hopefully the forecast is wrong, bu... Read more
