not down and out, just bent a little

Thursday, October 09, 2014

It seems I have taken a break from SP. I hadnt posted in about a week and it really wasnt planned.
I went out of town for a few days and then came home to housework and trying to catch up on bills and doing errands.
Excuses, I am not really trying to make.
I really just took a short unintended break.
I have been focusing on my vitamin d and doing some reading, trying to find out if magnesium is something I need to add to my daily routine.
Having joined a vitamin d defincieny support group, I have been learning alot about magnesiums role in aiding vitamin d.
I also read it might help with the numbness and tingling feeling I have in my foot.
However, I have read some who are against it.
So, I just try to do as much reading as I can before I discuss it with my doctor at my next visit.
But its getting colder here and have had to turn the heat on, this morning on my walk, I had to wear my hoodie for the first time and soon I will have to get my boggan and gloves out as well.
I just hope I can walk as much as possible before snow keeps me inside.
Then I will just have to focus on the ellipitcal and weights.
Which is a good thing as well.

I do dread the winter, and alot of it has to do with the weather and how it interferes with walking, but alot of it is my vitamin definency issues.
My feet and lower legs stay so cold all of the time, I have to get some fuzzy socks and sweat pants before much longer.
Honey is still laid off from work and has been making good use of his time by cutting trees and clearing brush and briar bushes around the property.
Hopefully getting as much away from the yard and driveway before full winter.
Wishing he would go back to work soon, I need to really get caught up on bills and I need a new phone, some new glasses and my hair did.
I guess you dont realize the money you spend on the extras until you are only able to spend on the necessities and right now it is getting to the point that its food vs. paying the bills.
Good thing I dont eat alot.

    I happen to love the wintertime, but largely because I think it's that chrysalis stage before we re-emerge in spring as new people. It's a period of thought and consideration, and I think there is some really cool value in that.

    Even so, I know how the cold weather and darker days can mentally wear on you. So keep your head up, keep coming here to share your story, and we'll all support you.

    hope things simplify for you a bit.

    I'm thinking it is time to haul out the warm wooly stuff - even though I hate to do it! The cold is upon us, like it or not. Freezing temps forecasted here tonight. I'm with you, I'd rather walk outside. In fact I do it until the snow flies, I just bundle up in layers!

    Hang in there and keep your chin up. Hugs!

    Sounds like a lot on your plate right now. I don't much look forward to cold weather either, but it probably does not get as cold where I live in the South, I'm kind of a wuss because I've always lived in the south.

    Hope things start looking up for you, keep positive!
