Life

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

As I listen to the news these days I wonder what the future has in store for everyone. So many things are out of ones control and living each day to its fullest is a goal we all should have. I had arranged a day yesterday to connect w/sis and 2 cousins for the 1st time in years. I can't believe what a wonderful time just sitting & chatting over a healthy lunch and a stroll down memory lane could relax & make everyone so happy. Everyone contacted me after our visit saying, "Thank you, for such a wonderful day....I had so much fun, can't wait to do it again." It makes me think of how, as children and being close we stray from connecting, because of lifestyle changes. One day a year a Family Reunion reconnects us and I hear "We should get together more often." I found out that it just took me to reach out and say, "I'm available between 10/12-10/22....is there a day where you can get together?" With a smile on my face today knowing we all had such a great time it was, so worth the connecting with the technology of today. I'll be reaching out again and hoping for another "Cousins Day" in the near future. You just never know how happy you might make someone.

Family Day

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

On vacation for 10 days and planned a day with sis & 2 cousins today (that keep telling me that we should get together more often) so a day & a plan came into action by me. It is funny how we all get wrapped in our own worlds and don't connect. I'm so looking forward to our chat & visit. My 10,000 steps a day is becoming a streak and something I am looking forward to daily. I now need to get more focus on planning meals. I find it really hard to plan, as my plans change so much. Habits change, so we shall see.....ONE DAY AT A TIME. Beginning a NEW DAY as a new day helps, as you can't change your yesterday's, as they are gone forever.

Another Birthday

Monday, October 13, 2014

As I go through today feeling pretty much the same as I did when I turned 30 or so, only with more chronic pain that will not go away and is accepted by me as a new way of life. Doctor visits are interesting in the way that all that seems to be wrong with me, "is an age thing". Why? I truly don't feel any different other than the pain & tire out earlier. lol I feel my body needs to move to control pain (at least for a little while) Life sure is what you make it in the long run. Cheers to a new and interesting day to come. Enjoy! While we can

Moving On Day by Day

Sunday, October 12, 2014

This past week has been an eye opener for me. Starting with Monday morning an severe back pain that made me walk for 20 mins before work to the 15 min, 30 min walks that I started each day. I found out that putting 10 mins into my walking app had me going longer. Setting a Goal for 10,000 steps a day has me finishing today's steps day #5 and I know that it feels good, no matter how slow I go. My next thought is as a CVS employee taking advantage of the Employee Weight Loss Program available to all employee's (this weeks adventure to talk about) it is from what I understand a 26 week program FREE to employees. CVSHealth is the NEW CVS....time will tell if it will work for me.

  


Can Do It

Saturday, October 11, 2014

I started back walking daily with chronic pain (knee & back). It makes such a difference in my mood when I move. I am thrilled that I took time to walk today for 33 minutes in the rain. Feeling really tired today & looking forward to a nap soon. lol Shooting for 10,000 steps a day & going to be happy with that. (at least for awhile) Today will be day #4....keep your fingers crossed that I do
