4th of July

Thursday, July 04, 2013

A happy 4th of July to everyone. May our freedom always be. I would love to be camping but haven't been able to yet. This is a packed weekend at the grounds so didn't want to push it. Hubby is afraid I may not sleep well in the camper so wants to do only an over nighter some time first.

I am struggling with the eating some but hanging around the 172 to 174 marks. I am sure a lot of it is not being able to be active like I like to be. I have been getting out and doing some walking but have to watch it so close. Think I over did it the other day and had swelling in my back so sat with an ice bag later that day. Two more weeks and then I go over for an x-ray to see how it looks and then hope to have some exercise's I can start doing. Never thought I would be a person that looked forward to exercise but I sure miss it. I have to ask about if and when I can go back to Zumba. I miss the girls and fun.

May you all have a safe and fun 4th. We are just taking a ride to visit Tom's sister. Sounds like no fireworks this year. We usually go over to Clear Lake to watch but the crowds are full and hubby doesn't want to me to get knocked around. I have the best guy and overly protective. He says no, just want you to get back to normal and active.

    Your hubby is certainly looking out for you and it sounds like its a good thing. Your engines are revving and it sounds like you just can't wait to take off but I think it is wise that you still take it easy until they docs clear you and give you some exercises that you can do that will continue to strengthen your back. It will all come in good time my friend. Be patient and take care of your health. You are still doing great maintaining without doing all the exercise that you would like. emoticon

    I will keep you in my prayers about your back and hope it has healed well.
    I too love Zumba and I hope you get to return to it soon.

    You are the luckiest girl in the world .... to have such a sweet, wonderful DH. I love the fact that he wants you to bet back to normal and active.....after all isn't that why you went through the surgery? So if it takes longer than you would like.....take care of yourself slowly and mustard up your patience....YOU will get there one day at a time.
    Have a wonderful 4th and celebrate our freedoms and your accomplishments. emoticon emoticon emoticon
