OMG it is "SUNNY"

Hope it stays that way for the day....., went out for my walk and did my 1.6K's was a bit chilly out there, my arm got a few bangs of pain, but think it was the cold more than the walk..... did it in 21.23 minutes.......  "SMALL STEPS" I think when I hit the 2k mark next week, I will feel like it is worthwhile.... I also have to remember I have done no exercise for nearly 6 months......

Food yesterday I used 5 of my weekly points so another successful day, today will also be another successful day :-)

Today I must do the vacuuming, in fact I will do it first thing after breakfast, and then thats it for the day pretty much apart from a bit more of housework. 

Even just going out for these small walks, is feeling bloody fantastic, I can not say I am still enjoying them till I am out there and even then I am not sure.... but I know I have to force myself to go...... I am trying not to jump the gun, but deep down I now have a small hope that just maybe I will get back to work one day........

Bugger, seem to be getting a not so good side reaction to my new meds, wheeziness.... I had it on the last meds as well, have just texted my pain doctor and he is going to get back to me, I don't want to go off these meds they are working so well with pain, another side effect I have developed is pain when I go to urinate, and the dizziness and lightheadiness is not getting any better either......bugger bugger bugger.....

Have spoken with my pain specialist, and we are going to persevere for another 2 weeks and if the dizziness has not gone by then we will have to stop the meds. I am going to start Magnesium for the spasms, and hopefully the pain when I urinate will go quickly, if not it could either be part of the CRPS or maybe a side effect of the meds, time will tell, have to go to the GP next week so if still sore will get a urine test done....he said the spasms are just part of the CRPS. As for the wheeziness, hopefully if I drink heaps more that will go away, as he said the meds I am on, builds mucus and the more you drink the better it is, so we will carry on and see what happens......


  1. Sunny here too and FRGGIN freezing too, good for you.

  2. YAY for another day with a walk in it and also great to hear that you had a successful day food wise. All you can do is take it one day at a time !!
    Have a good one.

  3. Well done on the walks Anything is better than nothing & you get to see a lot of houses & gardens etc etc that you never see in the car.

  4. It's lovely to see the sun aye. It's even a little bit warm in some spots.

    Good for you for sticking to your plan and I hope you've recovered from your fall the other day.

    Have a great Labour weekend - I'm off fishing - so I'm really happy to see the sun, lol. It's suppose to get warmer and warmer.
