It has come to my attention that I have been neglecting my blog the past couple of months. Saying “I have no time” would be an understatement. Finally after having a few good nights sleep my brain is able to form sentences.
The past 2 months have been, well, hectic. Between my daily physiotherapy, doing renovations (fixing, painting, more fixing, garage sales, used regina, cleaning out my grandmother’s house, more painting, and more fixing) on our new house, renovations (cleaning, painting, fixing, garage sales, used regina) on the condo, Weight Watchers, getting ready to go to Las Vegas, getting sick and being in hospital for 2 days, and moving from the condo to the house, let’s just say at the end of the day I didn’t feel like touching my computer.
My brother came down from Halifax to help with the renovations (thanks peasweet!!!!) and it was great to have the help. We had a family fun poker game, for a $2 buy-in, and yup I was the winner! It was good to see him (and take his money).
The move went super smooth! We were fortunate to be able to start moving in earlier and started moving and unpacking boxes about 2 weeks before the actual movers came. It was nice because the Monday morning they came to move our furniture the rest of the house was already unpacked and put in place (dishes, clothes, linens, cleaning supplies etc) so by 1pm on Monday everything was done and set up like a house. Definitely the smoothest move I have ever done.
Physiotherapy well it is what it is. I go there Mon to Fri, put in my 4 hours and leave. I am seeing some results, like I am able to do a half squat now and I can walk faster on the treadmill. Still am not able to climb stairs or walk up inclines or down declines that we have no matter where we walk. We figured out that I walk approximately 3 miles at work per day and right now I am just under 2 miles. Because I have been increasing my walking I am paying for it at night. Some nights I get as little as 2-3 hours per night and this catches up to me. I will be going back to work on October 17th (after Vegas). And I’m not so sure about that, but I will go and work “their” plan, but I can’t see it lasting long.
The cleaning, fixing, and painting seemed to take forever as we were in the “I wanna move now” stage. But we had lots of help from family and friends so a huge thank you to them..
Weight Watcher’s is still going great! Execpt for the week that pizza and taco time was on the menu for lunch and supper. But the total right now is 31.8lbs lost. 19 lbs till goal. Me and mom went out shopping yesterday and I got to buy myself some treats. Clothes rewards. 2 sizes smaller than before. All paid for by my Reitmans Gifts Cards from x-mas, plus $10 from mom. That was awesome. And a great reward.
And finally I got sick and ended up in the hospital. What started as vertigo ended up being that combined with my famous mysterious illness, intense stomach pain, with blood pressure as low as 79/53 YIKES! But I was drugged with morphine and filled with IV fluid and sent on my way the next day. Got some morphine to take home, spent a week sleeping on the couch, dizzy as hell, and then one day, a week later, I woke up and was fine.
So that has been my past 2 months. Now things are settled and brain is working I will be more diligent in my efforts to blog.
