June 02

Sunday, June 02, 2013      4 comments

I had great ideas in February but got sidetracked as usual by Tax Season. This year I worked full time for the School, part time for Tax Season & tried to maintain a Blog as well. Something had to give. I'm too old for all this! I admit I haven'... Read more

Almost the End of February!

Friday, February 22, 2013      2 comments

It's been a busy month - getting back to work, catching up with the bookkeeping, getting the new year started for incoming students & students that have to finish. I'm used to being the 'fill-in' gal. Through no effort of my own, I've become the... Read more

Snuffling Right Along

Sunday, January 20, 2013      1 comments

This damned virus won't let me be! I've been coughing since Christmas. It's a nice dry hack that doesn't seem to go away combined with a voice that comes & goes. Periodically it's combined with 10 minutes of sneezing & a couple of hours of blowi... Read more

How Time Flies

Monday, January 14, 2013      4 comments

I can't believe it's almost two weeks since I made an entry here!! A lot has changed. My sciatic pain has stopped & I can walk normally again - well more or less. The muscles in my right leg are weak & I can't walk upstairs unless I can LEAN on ... Read more

2013 - here we go

Tuesday, January 01, 2013      1 comments

Another year, another blank slate. I'm sitting here at almost 3AM on the first day of a brand new year contemplating the options. Yeah, I went out & bought chips to snack on for New Year's but they're baked. I didn't bother with dip but did buy ... Read more

Stairs or no Stairs

Saturday, December 29, 2012      0 comments

Stairs are my nemisis! Lifting that right leg still gives me burning pain. The Doctor says, 'if it hurts, don't DO it.' Yeah, right. Lifting my leg to get into the car still hurts too. Sometimes I don't sleep at night because it burns but I make... Read more

Just before Christmas

Sunday, December 23, 2012      2 comments

I've been so busy that I forgot to update the blog. As my pain has diminished, my activity has increased. Two days ago, I had to go up & down 30 steps three times in 2 hours!! A month ago, I couldn't do it once. I paid for all the stairs yesterd... Read more

Up & Walking

One more time around the block

Tuesday, November 06, 2012      2 comments

I've been almost immobile for the last couple of months with this sciatica. I've managed to drag myself into work by driving the back way so I can coast & not use the brakes so often. I can almost drive all the way by pivoting on my heel between... Read more

Moving a Little Better

Tuesday, September 04, 2012      1 comments

Since I couldn't get the damned socks on, I put the sneakers on without them. I've been walking with buggies. I park by the farthest buggy return in the parking lot & get myself a buggy to walk with - gets my purse off my shoulder too. I try to ... Read more

All Talk & No Action

Thursday, July 26, 2012      3 comments

I find it tough to get motivated. Yeah, my knee is sore & unstable & I have to watch out - especially on stairs! But, I've become less mobile in the last couple of years. I can blame menopause for some of it - apparently estrogen does a whole lo... Read more

Taking it Easy

Thursday, June 28, 2012      0 comments

Now that my knee is diagnosed, I have permission to take it easy. I don't want to take it easy though, I just want to get going now that I have a Plan. Isn't it always the way??? But, I have reformulated my Plan. I will check in Daily & do my Po... Read more

What the heck happened??

Sunday, June 24, 2012      4 comments

Somehow I've injured my ACL. What is it?? It's the ligament that runs from the lower leg bone to the upper bone under the knee cap to help stabilize the knee. Since I'm now over 60, it can become stiff & lose it's elasticity - doesn't everything... Read more

Small Changes

Sunday, June 17, 2012      3 comments

I bought two Leslie Sansone Walking CDs. I bought them because I need to get off my butt & walk but I'm having problems standing or walking too much outside. I guess my Core is weak & one knee gets painful & feels like it wants to collapse. Walk... Read more

Motoring Right Along

Tuesday, June 12, 2012      3 comments

I decided to try to control my puffy ankles with diet & exercise instead of adding more drugs to my morning. I've been moderately successful. Moderately because I'm not exercising like I should be - I spend too much time in front of the computer... Read more
