In the past couple of years I have been diagnosed with 4 pain conditions - FMS, Allodynia, Arthralgia and Neuropathy. I have a spinal injury which occurred at age 10 (but never pinpointed till age 41) and also sustained 5 herniated discs and arthritis in my spine.

In the past couple of years I have been diagnosed with 4 pain conditions - FMS, Allodynia, Arthralgia and Neuropathy. I have a spinal injury which occurred at age 10 (but never pinpointed till age 41) and also sustained 5 herniated discs and arthritis in my spine. It is a challenge finding the fine line between the right amount of activity and going beyond that - which often results in prolonged periods of immobility. This has impacted adversely on my ability to exercise, and my weight has crept up as a result.

I am now trying to eat more consciously and be more aware of portion control. Like many Spark Page members, I do love my food.

I love meeting new friends, so feel free to stop by and say hello.

Being mindful of portion control.

Move my body as much as I can within limits.

I love animals, and lost my beloved cat Coco aged 17, in December 2009.

Inspirational Quote:

People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
~Tony Robbins

Thank you Nattacia. If you go back in to see the blog, I think
all it needs is a tweak. Take out the s from the https and then copy and paste into your browser. It is such a lovely rendition of an old favourite. let me know how you go.
How's your weather doing there? We have been having beautiful weather and today it reached 25. huge fire danger though and everything is so dry. We urgently need rain,
