Was today really necessary?
It was one of those "I don't really feel like doing anything" days. I'm still paying for yesterday (it was worth it!) And hurting more than I like. I didn't even have the energy to bKe cookies or make any other comfort food. I did knit for about... Read more
Fun day with son
Well, my son's hair is blue. Not uniformly blue, but it's not bad. And its bright. It makes his hazel eyes look more green than brown. He likes it.
We worked the last farmer's market of the season together, I got an order for another fishe... Read more
So, my son wants to color his hair. Apparently "all the kids are doing it". And he wants green. Want to guess what the one color is you cannot get in temporary color? Yep. Green.
A couple of girls in his class have offered to do it for him... Read more
Done for the week, and none too soon!
How am I managing to STILL be overdoing?! I've cut my weight-bearing and stretching exercise by almost half, and my leg is still complaining?! What the??? Fine. I will just work at the level I am at on alternate days for now, and add the water c... Read more
110 degrees?! Really?!
I had therapy this morning-at 0730! As in "oh my gosh, its EARLY!" WAY too early to work that hard! But it was the slot that was open with the therapist I like. And I've been great about working hard-just not so good about slowing down. Um, yeah... Read more
Ha! I managed to do it!
I went and was able to get from the locker room to the pool-by myself! Which means I get to take my water exercise class!! Yahoo!
It gets even better. Before I went to the pool, I did 15 minutes on the NuStep, with the workload moved up to ... Read more
Signing up for fitness class
Which I'm not supposed to do, because I couldn't talk my son into going with me over the weekend to make sure I could get from the locker room to the pool safely. Therapist told me make sure I had done it at least a few times with someone with m... Read more
I hope it's not the flu!
I woke up feeling achy, cranky, and yucky. So I went back to bed. I didn't bother getting up until the neighbor knocked on the door to borrow some coffee. Which was when I realized I REALLY feel like...well, not good. Don't you hate it when you ... Read more
I just finished my first orientation session with a trainer at the Y. The trainer's name is Neal, a very polite young man, with incredible patience ... Read more
Patience is a virtue-just not one of mine
But I will apparently be getting MUCH better at it! Or am getting much better at it? I am voluntarily offering to put my second surgery on hold to take more time to recover, take an exercise class, and get some more weight off.
I don't WANT... Read more
Setting exercise limits
Well, today was (possibly) my last therapy session. We're waiting on the insurance to decide if they will cover more or not. But I had the therapist go through the class schedule for the Y with me to decide which 3 classes I was signing up for. ... Read more
Oops-I did it again.
I over-did it again. I made 2 shopping trips today. One necessary-I needed a lock for my locker at the Y, and I picked up some mineral ice patches and heat patches for pain prevention while I was there. I figured it makes sense to keep a few in ... Read more
My amazing wonderful husband
My husband may not "get" the weight thing, he may unintentionally sabotage my calorie limit when he's home (which is rare since he's a long haul truck driver), but God bless the man, he is so good to me! He got me NFL mobile for my smartphone! A... Read more
I had a candy bar...
So what? You say? Or oh no!? Aha! Not quite. See, I had A candy bar. One. Singular. Not a bag of candy bars, not a few candy bars, not even a king size. Okay, I'm not down to a single fun size yet or totally off chocolate, but still! For me this... Read more
So I am still stuck in the house. But I'm still sparking along! I've been stretching and exercising the leg, managed to get into-and more importantly-out of! The bathtub yesterday, oh my gosh, did that feel good! And today I think I will just s... Read more
