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......

  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.
