As of last Friday, I began my walking again. As soon as I started doing my serious stepping, my neck stopped hurting. Then my sciatica was getting better. I did have really bad pain in my calfs over the weekend, but that went away by Monday. ... Read more

I am at the point that I can not sit and heal anymore. I think the resting to heal is making me worse. My back and my neck are horrible. I know this is from sitting and "resting". Resting isn't good. Resting hurts. I am taking my health bac... Read more

Sorry I’ve been MIA lately. I hurt myself a couple weeks ago. I thought it was the hip. I finally got into the doctor yesterday. Of course his first question was, “did you fall off your horse?”. No I haven’t gotten on JC yet, just a lesson horse... Read more

I am now about 4 months past hip surgery and almost 2 months since shoulder surgery. Recovery has been slow, but I’m getting there. I am up to 7500 steps a day, back on Elliptical, Treadmill and bike. I go to PT twice a week and Pilates twice a ... Read more

Wow, it has been a long time since I wrote a blog. Summer has just flown by. Both surgeries are now completed. I am in PT and also going to Pilates for rehab. The hip is getting better, but it is still a bit sore. I am working on my 10,000 ... Read more

The surgery went well. He said it was a good thing I did it and it should fix the problem. The tendon tear was about the size of a dime, but there was a lot of calcification he cleaned out. He said that that was probably causing more pain than t... Read more

I never realized the impact being excessively overweight could have on so many things not just on how I look or my clothes fit. I went to my doc yesterday for pre-op exam. I am down to 166.6. 29 lbs lost 👍🏻 I heard from my doc this ... Read more

Today was a great NSV!! My 21 yo daughter came with me to Pilates. She thought it was tough. She had no strength. We just did beginning stuff. I felt pretty good. I flew through the exercises. I know not fair as I have been doing it for almost 2... Read more

The bathroom remodel is well underway and should be completed by next week. Once it is done, I am thinking I can move up my hip surgery. I might as well get it over with. The sooner it is done, the sooner I can recuperate, the sooner I can get b... Read more

JC won his qualifier and championship last week. He looked exquisite! I keep trying to post his win picture on here, but it isn't working. I posted it in my regular feed. How ironic that I did all this to be able to take in my riding suit and lo... Read more
Lessons I've Learned

I weighed this morning and I was 168. That is huge for me. I haven't been in the 160's since 2010. I've learned a lot this past 8 months. I learned that you don't have to kill yourself to lose weight. You don't have to spend hours at the g... Read more

I can't believe it is already April. What happened to March? Things have been up and down lately. Work is really busy. The Spring market started very early this year. That is good because show season starts next week. Caitlin, JC's trainer... Read more

I certainly wouldn't have made that statement 6 months ago. I used to lounge around until around 10 when I would start work for the day. Then, I would spend a lot of my day at the computer. Once in a while, I would get myself to the gym, do Lesl... Read more

It has been absolutely amazing here with the temps at or just above 60 for the last couple of days. That weather has certainly helped the real estate market. I think the Spring buying season has already begun. It's been a very busy couple of wee... Read more

So far I have walked 8 miles today. Took me almost two hours. It was beautiful out so my daughter and I were able to walk along the parkway. I just have to find some walking shoes that support my heels. I always wear Fitflops as they are the on... Read more
