Lost Again....

Friday, July 11, 2014

I got sided tracked again with the job which happens more often than I would like. Trying to stay ahead on so few hours & so tired. Hot weather has been and issue lately. Only good thing is I have been staying @ the same weight and have kept some good habits going on a daily bases. I've slack off on exercise & more ME TIME that I should get back too. My body hurts all the time and I am at the point that I hate the fact that age is the reason. I have got to keep moving and I know it. Just wish I had someone besides ME to make me DO IT.

Pain

Monday, June 09, 2014

I find there are NO pain free days anymore in my life. With chronic conditions that seem to appear with age (if you are lucky) become a daily thing & you tend or at least I tend to listen more to my body & adapt daily. I have found that walking 1st thing in the morning is what I need to do in order to become pain tolerable. I'm trying now to figure out how to open jars with my hands without pain and it doesn't seem to be happening. Knee pain is the worse....then back pain comes in second. Tough getting older (as my MA seems to tell me) I just keep telling myself it is the circle of life and everyone goes though there issues. I hope in time that the issues ahead are as adaptable as what I am dealing with today. Today is just another new beginning to do my best and enjoy what I have & can.

    Jan, I'm having pain now in my fingers. I'll be 60 in Jan. It is so hard to open any jars.

Not Easy

Friday, June 06, 2014

I'm not consistent with my healthy lifestyle. I fall off track often, as I put work ahead of ME and tire out by the end of the day. I can't seem to learn how to balance my time consistently to accomplish what I should/would/need to do to make my life what it should be. Q: what should my life be? I feel happy most of the time. I feel like I accomplish things at work. I listen to my chronic pain at the end of each day. What is there in life that one really wants? I know that starting my day with a morning walk works better for me than trying to plan it in a schedule. I know that eating my oatmeal breakfast before work helps me work through my morning. I pack lunches most days of the week & drop a few pounds then bounce back up a bit......but I'm still not where I should be according to DR scale. The important thing.....I really can't complain and to me that is a pretty good thing. I'll get to my happy place in time & as long as I'm happy that is all that matters the most .

Learning

Friday, May 16, 2014

I'm learning more about myself and my body everyday. I find that I feel different everyday which is a good thing. I have kept the weight off that I've lost since I have been connecting to SP and feel much better than I did when I was 182.6 lbs in 2007. That was my turning point in life. I'm still the weigh I was in 2009 156.4 lbs today and know losing more weigh would benefit my knee pain. (Dr suggest weigh loss) I can't complain too much and I tell myself I am a work in progress. I've learned to accept everything and to adapt to whatever comes my way. I 'm learning to let things go and not bother me, as much as I did it the past. This journey is a lifetime journey and interesting things pop up that can and will make me stronger and I know I can do it (for me) one day at a time.
