I really need to learn to start taking pictures and writing things down more… It seems I do nothing but I have so much going on it’s crazy. Things are up and down all the time, but that’s life I guess. Frustrating at times, but I just try to breathe it out. Time will only tell at this point where things are going to go, but I hope things go in a positive directions. So, here’s some updates on my life:
On the fitness front… I’ve been trying to rehab my knees, so daily walks with Elmo are becoming my favorite thing in the morning. It’s so calm in the mornings and it’s just as the sun is coming up so the temperature is perfect. I just love walking him, then coming home to have a cup of coffee and do some PT exercises. It’s just nice to able to get around, but I just hope it stays this way (see next paragraph). Whomp, whomp.
On the knee front… It was feeling a lot better when I was on the steroids, but it’s back to hurting when I walk since I’m not taking them anymore. I had an appointment on Thursday and the bone is healing well except now the inflammation/fluid are coming back in my knee. It’s a big mental block from being able to do a lot and have things taken away again. Surgery to flush the knee was mentioned to get rid of whatever is making my knee mad. Yikes.
On the health front… I have been trying a lot of new things, eating at different times, and taking steps outside of my comfort zone. I think my mom is amazed at what I’m eating lately, actually, and the fact I’ll take bites of things I wouldn’t even try in previous months/years. My favorite meal last week was a portabella “burger” with blue cheese and buffalo hummus. God, it was good. I have a long way to go but taking strides forward is a good thing. Five pounds gained and eventually I’ll hate it, but it’s just necessary at this point. Progress.
On the food front… Peanut butter pop-tarts and Limited Edition Edy’s Slow Churned Take the Cake. You’ll thank me later. The pop-tarts taste like a raw peanut butter cookie. So.damn.good.
On the Elmo front… This is going to seem really weird, but it’s kind of funny. See, I hate when dogs lick their crotches all the time. It grosses me out, so I would always tell Elmo to stop it. Now, he doesn’t lick himself… Or so I thought. He had a cone on his head for a week and developed a weird crust on his… yeah. We thought he had a bladder infection but the first night after he went to bed without his cone, the crust was gone. So, he is now the “closet licker” and my mom says he has a secret. LOL so weird, but incredibly funny. He knows what to keep behind closed doors, I guess. I just say he’s being polite. 😉
What are some updates on your fronts?
Oh, and make sure you go over and tell Courtney congratulations on her new baby boy!!!
