1st week of the New Year

Saturday, January 07, 2012

Greetings all!

I'm happy to say I have completed the week successfully! My only draw back, I fell on Monday. Since we've been in a bad drought, I have mini sink holes covered by winter grass. This is difficult to see. I was walking to my garbage can and down I go. At first I was angry with myself, second I was looking around to see if anyone saw. I was getting up and I tell you what, I thought I broke something. Happy to say I didn't break anything, but I did pull my muscle from the back of the knee all the way down to the twisted ankle. I couldn't move my leg and everything I did was outrages pain. I called my mom and told her I really needed her. She picked me up and I was at her house for a couple of days.

Today (Saturday) I'm able to walk normally. I still have pain, but not like on Monday. I really was looking forward to walking the dogs. I'll be taking things slowly and hopefully I'll be able to go for a walk tomorrow.

Other than that, been eating healthy, keeping up with my goals and trying to have a positive attitude about everything.

    Oh my! That is scary, and I don't know if you live alone, as I do, but when you hurt yourself...it takes the starch out of your linens! I pray for a full and speedy healing!
    I've fallen a few times and once tore the ligiments in my right foot...but didn't know it until it became a screaming 7 on a scale of 1-5.

    Do you still have the vertigo problems? Did you get a DX? I think I told you I had Meniere's, with profound hearing loss, and as bad as that is, the dizziness and drop attacks were the worst. Whew!

    You've done great and I am encouraged and inspired by your drive and determination~ You go girl... emoticon

    You keep that positive attitude and don't let that fall sideline you for too long. I'm so very sorry that happened to you, Cheryl. Thank God you have your mom to help you out.

    That little sink hole isn't going to sink YOUR ship, my friend. You have the determination and drive to keep on moving forward. Just make sure you are healed enough before you do anything too strenuous!

    Great job in keeping focused on your goals so far. We are only a week into the year but the tone to your successes shows you are headed in the right direction.

    Sorry to hear about your pain and accident, but those are only temporary. Do not let it detract you from the success you have had so far and the positive attitude you have with it.

    SPARK ON IN 2012!!
