Elizabeth Jayne's new life

I am 52, overweight, and grandma to a two year old grandson. I need to take control of my lifestyle and health so I can watch him grow up.

I am a RN and want those I care for to be able to look at me and know I take care of myself and want to help them do the same.

I recently went through the experience of being diagnosed with a spinal tumor, surgery, trying to get back on my feet, having to have more surgery to remove my gallbladder, and finally getting back to work. ...

Hi again! Good to see your comment on my SPage :) you asked how I balance it all and to be honest, I don't always but I've learned to do the best I can, working around whatever is taking priority on any given day. In addition to working full time (+ some, I work as a trainer on the side by appt), I'm overseeing the care of my aging Mother & my handicapped brother who lives with her. And we're very involved in the lives of our children who are all grown & live on their own. One of the first things I do each day is determine ahead of time what time of day I'll get in my workout... might be early morning, might be noon, might be after work but I decide on when and I do it... that's the only way I can stay healthy enough to be the Mom, GrandMom, Wife & Daughter I need to be :) I guess you'd say "flexibility" is my new normal at this stage of my life!

Hope that helps. As for regaining your balance physically, I'm not an expert on it but I do work with some elderly clients in that regard and I highly recommend you ask your Doc for a referral to a Physical Therapist to get some ideas on how to gradually improve your proprioception (kind of a brain to the body reconnect). You may simply need a refresher in training your subconscious to know where your body is in space at any given time with every movement. A therapist can explain it better & provide you with specific balance exercises that will help you with this. I occasionally add balance training to my own workouts.... it's very valuable for all of us!!

Take care and I wish you the best as you recover! Never give in & keep moving forward.. sometimes you'll move slowly but stay at it and you WILL reach your goals!!

Thanks for the SparkGoodie. I know what you mean about Windows 8 and the learning curve. My sister has Windows 8 on her computer and I am always helping her out with it.
