Thursday, April 30, 2009      2 comments

I've been doing pretty well with staying in my range this week and eating healthy food. I still need to watch my sodium more closely though. I've also been drinking plenty of water. Eating with a purpose of nourishing my body is getting easi... Read more
The Sun is Shining on Me!
Wednesday, April 29, 2009      2 comments

As I left the house this morning to take our old junker car to the repair shop, there was a cool breeze and the sun was shining brightly. Despite the bumps in life's road recently, a feeling of peace washed over me. With all of the trials and ... Read more
Feeling Strong and Getting Some Answers
Tuesday, April 28, 2009      3 comments

I had a great workout in my water aerobics class and I'm feeling strong! Following the class, I broke out in a strange rash and this time my doctor had an opening for me to go and see him at 3:30 p.m. today. He took a biopsy of one area and a... Read more
Doing a Happy Dance!
Friday, April 24, 2009      9 comments

Today I did 30 minutes on level 1 of the bike. I forced myself to go slowly because I've been away from it for so long. I was able to do the hamstring and quad machines as well as the lateral pull down, front fly, seated row and chest press - ... Read more
Good News!

I went to the foot doctor today and got a great report! Yay! I can slowly start back to exercising. My Achilles tendon still has some swelling (about a quarter of the way up my leg) but if I'm careful, that should go away with a little time. ... Read more
T Minus One Day and Counting
Tuesday, April 21, 2009      6 comments

Tomorrow I go to the foot doctor. I can't wait. I have also scheduled a therapeutic massage about an hour later so I should be good to go! I had a good water aerobics session yesterday but today I'm covered with a rash - oh well that's what p... Read more
Just 3 Days Until My Foot Appointment
Sunday, April 19, 2009      8 comments

Just three days until I go to the doctor to have my foot checked to see if I can go back to doing regular exercise! (But who's counting?!) To say I've been counting the days is a gross understatement! I've kept as active as I've dared without ... Read more
Another Bump In The Road
Thursday, April 16, 2009      6 comments

I got my MRI results yesterday. I have a couple of herniated disks in the upper center of my back. They are very small which is good news but still they are very painful. This would finally explain the pain and numbness in my arms and hands.... Read more
It's All About The Choices
Tuesday, April 14, 2009      4 comments

I'll have to admit that on Easter with all of that candy floating around, I made several poor choices. Since it was only one day, I'm not upset about it. Yesterday, it was all about what can make me the healthiest person I can be. Today, I'm ... Read more
Today's Exercise
Monday, April 13, 2009      2 comments

Today I did the whole water aerobics class. I tried my best not to bounce and when the class was bouncing up and down, I marched in place. I'm already a little stiff in my arms and thighs but I'm pleased that I am able to participate without p... Read more
The Whole Meaningful Easter Package
Saturday, April 11, 2009      4 comments

Even though the kids are all grown and living on their own, an Easter tradition that hubby and I started several years ago is our yearly dying of Easter eggs. We always dyed Easter eggs when the kids lived at home and we stopped for a while when... Read more
Back to almost normal...
Friday, April 10, 2009      4 comments

Today I decided to try to do as much of a regular water aerobics class as I could. I skipped some of the jumping around but I tried to stay on two feet for the whole class. So far so good. My ankle doesn't hurt at all and it isn't sore even w... Read more
Good News
Thursday, April 09, 2009      6 comments

I'm pumped! I got some awesome news today. I had a colonoscopy about 3 weeks ago and the doctor removed a bunch of little polyps. The lab work finally came back and there is zero sign of any cancers. The best part is that I don't have to hav... Read more
Tracking More Carefully Today
Tuesday, April 07, 2009      6 comments

Today I am tracking my food more carefully and paying closer attention to what I'm putting into my mouth. I'm usually very good about doing this and it has become a great habit. Yesterday was a bust - granted the first one I've had in over a y... Read more
A Good Workout
Monday, April 06, 2009      2 comments

I was back in the water today. I attended my water aerobics class and it was good to see all of my friends! I was very careful and used alternate positions for almost everything. I skipped all of the jumping around and kept my right foot off ... Read more
