Here again, there again, gone again... Whoops. Right. Going to get back to doing this sparky thing again. Because this is really an unacceptable level of non-progress (though at least I guess I'm not getting any fatter...). ... Read more
Yay! Go me!

So I've been really struggling the last four months, with limited mobility and having to work through physical therapy (2 hours per night, and not much time left for anything else). It turns out I'm too flexible, which in my case means tha... Read more

Well, maybe not as much as that, but between the weather warming up (yay California!) and my back getting LOTS better, I'm starting to get some of my energy back. It's nice to be able to accomplish things. It's nice to have energy to think and... Read more

Finally starting to get my life back from physical therapy. Did anyone else see the study results that folks who get less than 7 hours of sleep regularly tend to operate as if they hadn't slept in 1-3 days? Yikes! I am a reformed woman...... Read more

Yay! Today has been 99.9% pain-free! So awesome! (Yes, I'm still keeping up on my physical therapy -- no WAY I'm going to risk backsliding!) So I'm excited. In other news, I started doing the nutrition program through Kaiser's lit... Read more
Vacations are apparently good for my waistline...

Okay, and good for the rest of me, too. But I'm always surprised when I go on vacation and lose weight -- guess I'm more of a stress-eater than I generally think of myself as being. Physical therapy goes well -- I'm limping less badly now,... Read more
Need to stay on track.

I can do this. Pain notwithstanding. Literally. Not standing. Ow. I've been pretty good with the physical therapy, but made the mistake of going to an anime convention with my cousin on Saturday (she's 13). I promised her I would go mo... Read more

Boy, it's lowering when that's an upbeat statement! :D I've been being really dilligent about the physical therapy, and it does seem to be helping. And I'm getting in better touch with my self, and how my body feels when I do different th... Read more
Well, that's nice.

My annual "I need a maid" breakdown got my husband to agree to pick up the bulk of the housecleaning for a while. Which, actually, is a good thing -- I was a bit worried about my ability to scrub anything, given that I'm having trouble walking ... Read more

Does anyone have any recommendations on how to find someone reliable to help look after the house? I'm having trouble rebalancing my housework, with my recent health problems and the physical therapy I'm doing. I'm not looking for anything fan... Read more

For once, not much to report. Gosh it's nice to be back in a sedate routine, instead of jumping around like a madwoman trying to get everything organized for the holidays. I feel like I have so much more "free time" somehow.... Read more
Really really tiny baby steps.

Oh, argh. I went to see my physical therapist today. I am not to do any stretching other than the exercises she gives me (which was not a surprise and, by the way, ow, and do I look like that sort of masochist?), but I'm also not allowed to do... Read more

So very very frustrated at myself. At least the holidays are over. I didn't gain (much) weight (my scale is having difficulty with consistency this week, so I'm not sure). And I can get back into the habit of doing all the right things. ... Read more

Went home last night and fell asleep. Woke up when the alarm went off today... but, hey, at least I feel well-rested! :) My husband is after me to stop drinking diet soda. I can't complain -- he's substituting in an extra homemade mocha ... Read more
