Now the wheelchair is so much lighter and I could just about push myself around the whole mall... it is so much easier to turn etc and it fits perfect I didn't shuffle around and I did not get a sore bum. So on Tuesday I will be ringing them and telling them that is the one I will keep :). And I am saving ACC money as it is half the price :). Oh and speaking of ACC they sent me a letter saying I had an appointment with the last doctor I did a back to work assessment on, I am stoked cause he was great understood CRPS and now I do not need to explain it all again yay.
Anyway just a couple of photos one of a cruse ship in..... and below one of Pilot Bay at the Mount.
We also had a look at the Mount shops to trial the wheelchair in the street was perfectly fine.... Steph got a haircut while we were there at Bayfair $50 later for her but it does look nice lol, I purchased myself a little handbag to take with me when out in the chair instead of my heavy one..... the only thing is my camera does not fit in it but thats ok cause I always have my iphone for pics or if we are going somewhere, and where I think the camera will be needed I will just hang it around my neck.
We were out from about 10am to 6pm so a long day for me..... but it was great :).
Today wont be much may go out and get stationary for the kids and thats about it I think, might even leave that till tomorrow. Steph's boyfriend is coming down to stay today till Wednesday I think, Chris I think is getting his mate around, so I think I might have a DVD day of movies I have not seen in a while, David is going to spend some time with his mum today I think..... I know I need to rest.... oh and the scales are still looking great, am really enjoying this way of eating :), or I might even set up my recipe blog of my favorite low carb recipes.
As you can see to the right I have added a link to my low carb recipe site......
Just went out and got the stationary for the kids so another job done, got a couple of groceries and thats it for today will veg the rest of the day now and do a little housework.
Why do I enjoy low carb, ok here are a few things:
- Do not need to track or count calories, am loving that.
- Am not craving the junk food nearly as much and if I do I have a craving I have a piece of 85% Lindt chocolate, 1 piece is enough.
- It is easy to fit in with going out etc....
- I am feeling better in myself, as in not so lethargic
- As for the health issues it is hard to say at this stage next time I go for bloods and blood pressure hopefully it will show a difference.
- Pain wise I dont see a difference yet but am not expecting to for at least 6 months.
