New Start date

I read on a buddies blog (Allan) that he is using a new start date. I thought that was a great idea. So starting today, I have put a new start date. I would look at my old one and say " I have done well" but so just used that as an excuse. I need to keep going and lose the weight I have gained from being off and lose more. So, that is what I am doing. So now I look at it and it shows nada... but lets see what it will show next week. This morning I actually emailed my RD(Registered dietitian) to let her know I want to start next week to come back to classes again. She also weighs us and then the educational classes start. So the timing is perfect.

Wonderful weather

Well, about 2 weeks ago I went to Costco. I wanted to start getting some healthy food for work. So I bought the bag of spinach, egg whites, mushrooms, romaine, carrots, mushrooms, peppers. Yum! The I thought I should get a case of water. So I put the case in my cart. Wasnt nuthing since it was on a tall stack and just lifted it down. I check out and bring it to my car. I then screwed up. I lifted it up from the deep cart and put it in my trunk. Yep, really stupid. Ouch... First off, I am not suppose to lift anything. Well yes, I hurt myself. First I thought I sure hope I didnt get a hernia.

So, a few days later I decide maybe I should see my Doctor cause the pain didnt go away. Well she checked me for a hernia. Do you know how they check a woman for a hernia.

Folks it not fun. Fingers go every where. And yes, she does ask me to cough. No hernia thank God. Just a torn muscle. Rest and Ice.  Lordy I learned my lesson.

I am really excited to go back to work. I miss my coworkers and bosses. But, I dread the morning traffic and getting up at 5am.  But it will feel great to go for my lunch walks again.

2013 A new Year!

Well I must say I am glad 2012 is gone. A really rough year. But I see a glimmer of hope and joy in 2013(fingers crossed). Working this week, not officially though. I actually wont be back til Feb 1. But, its nice to be back and get caught up. The docs were really glad to see me. That is so neat. They are great bosses.

The weather has really been nice. Its should get in the 70's. Celebrated my son's 20th birthday on New Years. Next year he'll be 21. Yikes, it Las Vegas time again. He laughs that he is going for sure, but with his buddy not his mommy. LOL (Ya, he cant keep thinking that, this ole momma is definitely going) :)

Monday is time for the old mammogram-squish....Hate it, but it must be done.

I hope everyone is doing well and life is treating them well. I certainly thought of you all. But I needed time for myself to heal physically and mentally.
