Anzac 2012

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them

Lest we forget

20th April - Fri

Still recovering and being well behaved mostly lol and staying in bed like I've been told but boy I'm getting antsy :)

I did however weigh in and had a loss of 1.3 kg which was great :)

Now I can update from my phone while in bed I have no excuse not to keep in touch more.

Hopefully I'll be allowed up at computer for a couple hours later today with no side effects this time.

Till later

10th April - Tue

Quiet day today, went to gym this afternoon feeling pretty flat, but of course once there Mel (owner/trainer) was feeling FANTASTIC and decided today was the day she would ramp things up heaps with me and we ended up having a blast! :)

She just made things up on the fly for me to do and boy she made me sweat the whole 30 mins, with lots of different arm / stomach / core exercises with and without dumbells, then made me stand up / sit down over and over which I actually love as it's something relatively new that I can do more than once now (I used to and still do actually have to really plan getting up and moving as the pain is so intense every time I stand on my legs) but she was watching my face and as soon as it got intolerable she'd start me on something else sitting down.

Was feeling on such a natural high when we left - thanks Mel :)

Got a message later evening from my niece saying she had made some cupcakes and did we feel like an late evening visitor.. HELL yeah :) come on over Katie girl and sure enough couple hours later (she had to finish the cupcakes, they were and look darling) she arrived - was great to have her here.. actually as I write this she's asleep on the couch and staying the night.

She even made the little flowers - clever girl!
We had a really fun time the kids, Kate and I just sitting around chatting, I know I really needed that time with her and I so hope from here on, she knows she's welcome ANY time to just pop on over... and I hope that in turn I can help her too as I can see and feel how much she is hurting too right now.

So I will sign off for tonight and head off to bed earlier for me LOL and look forward to spending more time with Kate tomorrow - Oh and Toni is on holidays too so perfect timing! :)

Easter 2012

Still here, but recovering from another cellulitis attack - doctor thinks my body is not coping with everything at the moment, my sister's passing, funeral, my mother and it's all gotten so hard to deal with right now.


Happy Easter though to all my supportive and loyal friends online, without your continuing support, encouragement I'd don't think I'd be here blogging again at all

1st April - Sun

Wow, April already - tomorrow would have been Dad's birthday :( and I know I'll have to ring mum, Lynne and I used to take turns in calling her on Dad's birthday as she (Mum) would always get teary and say how she wished she wasn't here but with him etc all the time which after 10 years is slightly draining to hear... so, Lynne, I know you're laughing where ever you are right now knowing that yep it's my turn tomorrow (sigh)

I weighed in on Fri just to have a number to start off with again as this year so far has been atrocious to say the least not weight wise, but health wise and losing my sister.

But I can't just sit back and hibernate, she would have hated that, so reluctantly, I have to pick myself up and get back into the game.

Starting with 20 mins on the Wii yesterday - Just Dance 2 - was tiring but oh so much fun, I have so missed my music lately.

Today was a flat day both emotionally and physically, just felt drained and out of puff so to speak - not sure why, maybe just getting through the days the best I know how.

Big storm here this afternoon, but as quickly as it came it was gone :( lol sorta like my mojo LOL
