New Exercise Equipment Makes Me So Happy
Tuesday, February 15, 2011      1 comments

I feel like such a lucky girl. One of the things I loathe is doing my pt exercises. They are slow. Tedious. Time-consuming. And you cannot see results for weeks and weeks and weeks. But I've stuck with them pretty well for over a d... Read more

Let me start this out by saying I am a bit overweight and a size 10-12. BUT . . . I am so happy with where I am. I put on the swimsuit and take my niece & nephew swimming and enjoy it. I am just enjoying life and not focusing on the excess we... Read more

So I'm wearing red today. I made my dh take off his sweater and wear a red shirt and drive the old red truck to work today. This year the wearing of the Red is really hitting home. I'm spending the day feeling melancholy and dreaming of... Read more

So it was mrsa. Boo. But I found it before it spread so Hooray! This time my prescription is for just 2 antibiotics with lots of moist heat to entice my body to do its own healing. I've been so exhausted the past 3 days as my body is f... Read more

Hooray! Almost through with an entire week without receiving any bad news re my health. Although I don't "have" to exercise, and could easily use my heart's limbo status as an excuse not to do much, I've found I really WANT to move. Maybe... Read more

Yesterday was a normally-scheduled dr appt to check on the progress of my mrsa site. It's healing great, doesn't even look like there will be a scar there from the incision (wow) and the blackening of the tissue under the skin is complete... Read more

I'm home from my physical therapy appt and not a happy girl. I'm weaker than I should be and they're not happy with the amt of pain meds I'm taking because it shouldn't have to be that way. I overdid the workouts and am now paying the pric... Read more

Yuck, this is tough. I'm having a lot more pain. Just inhaling hurts my mid back. And I'm wearing heat packs on my neck an awful lot during the day. But the rest of the pain is the nice sore muscles that you get from working them -- ah... Read more

So I'm fully back among the living. How many second chances can one person have? I don't know, but I'm very grateful. MRSA is just plain nasty. And it fell in love with me. With my poor immune system it was an awful fight to get rid of ... Read more
