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

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

The epidural worked well. I goofed up last year when I didn't do the series. I only did one. If this keeps up, I will do one more instead of two more. I am definitely a ways from the time I will agree to neck surgery. I can endure 15 minutes of ... Read more
Good and Not So Good

I am now down 23 lbs. So close to the 160's again. I have gotten in the habit of walking at least 2 hours a day and try for 15,000 steps. All my clothes are big and I can fit into petite clothes again. However, it seems every time I get in ... Read more

Yesterday, I made myself go shopping. I tried before Thanksgiving and I wasn't Womens anymore, but I wasn't petites yet either. I actually got jeans in a 16 petite. I was a women's 20 for a while there. I also bought some workout pants that... Read more
