I'm not complaining....

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Its been a trying few months for me....I had two abdominal surgeries in 2012 which set me back just a bit. Surprised to hear that I only gained 7 lbs. With all the bed rest and orders to not exercise, I just knew it would be worse. I did try my best to eat right. This latest health episode proves that eating right is 90% of the work. I will try harder to eat right in 2013. But I will not stop exercising because I noticed more pain and stiffness in my body from lack of exercise.

Today I started a Beginners Yoga class and already I feel a difference. I can't wait for next week's class. Until then I will continue to stretch and reach on my own. I wonder if I'm the only one with an achey back or body over 40. My husband is younger than I am so I can't complain too much, I don't want him to think I'm getting old fast on him. LOL. Well I'm not complaining.

My younger sister turned 40 on December 1. On January 2 she suffered a pulmonary embolism. What a family scare. She is doing wonderful now, but she sure escaped death. Praying for her full recovery and good health for all. Life is precious. Its always been me and her growing up so I don't know what I would without her. Thank you God for letting her stay!

Well I need to get some more stretching in. I pray all is well with everyone and that 2013 treats us all well.

I will be checking in from time to time. Please keep in touch.

Here is a pic of me and my beautiful sister on her 40th birthday. God, thank you again.

Here is a pic of my daughter and handsome grandson. He is growing so fast. Such a big boy!

    I'm happy that things have turned around for the better. Life & family is so precious, take good care of yourself, love on them and take care of each other.

    on another note: that grandson is a heartbreaker.... he's sooooooooooo cute.

    praying you & your sister excellent recovery.

    How fortunate for your sister to escape death, a very good news :D And such a sweet photo of your daughter and grandson :D While you're on recovery, focus more on your rest, food and low intensity workouts (gradually to add more intense, always consult with your doctor).
