Well the cortisone injections were not really successful but have relieved the pain I feel when I go to bed at night a bit. Pain and pins and needles running through left leg still happening. Dont know what is next but know that I am not going to let this cripple me.
Went to the gym on Tuesday after work and did some cycling which was fine and then tried to walk on the treadmill. The fastest I could go was 4.5km and that hurt. Considering I used to think 6.0 km/hr was slow made it all very frustrating but I will keep pushing the boundaries.
DS has decided to move out forthwith. He and a mate have leased a really nice (read really expensive) unit at St Leonards for 12 months. I dont think he can afford it but he wont listen so we will see. Anyway, he will be moved out by next week and I will have my folk art/study back again. Yah. Mind you, they are coming home every Monday night for a baked dinner LOL.
DDs move to Goulburn is progressing. She has the keys to the unit and has bought a lounge on ebay. DH is going to get it from Burwood on Sunday and take it and other things straight to Goulburn. It is supposed to rain on Sunday - could we possibly break Goulburn's drought - and we arent even bbqing. She was a bit teary this morning. A lot of big changes in her life but have tried to reassure her I am only a phone call away and we are so proud of her. Her boyfriend being away in Europe for the world cup is not helping either.
Mum has told my Sis2 that she is not happy in Queensland. We knew that this would happen but hopefully it was just a bad day. I must admit she sounds dreadfully tired on the phone. Have not heard from Sis1 at all but Mum is not happy that she is never home although Sis1 did warn her that she was always out playing bowls and golf. Anyway, life is calm and good without Mum continually creating problems 40 minutes away.
Am still planning to walk (at best run down hill) the city to surf. Dont know about dinner as mentioned DS and I are going to Cirque D'Soleil (?) on the Saturday afternoon and am not sure what time it finishes.
Went to to WW last night. Was not going to go because I have been a bit down and comfort eating lately but had second thoughts and realised I couldnt keep ducking the consequences of how I was feeling. Anyway was pleasantly surprised. Although I had put on 700 g in 3 weeks am still within my goal weight range. Instead of staying for the meeting went to a yoga session at the gym which was okay. I will probably go again next week although I found the instructor a bit strange. She obviously was a proper yoga person not a yoga/gym instructor (if you understand what I mean).
Hasnt the rain been welcome. Everything is looking fresh and green again Although there must have been a million weed seeds lurking in my gardens and they have now all sprouted.
Anyway plans for the weekend -
I am going to taichi tomorrow morning and will just have to sit down if I cant stand for the long periods required.
Breakfast with Irene at the gym
Not sure if there is room in the car for me to go to Goulburn too but will go if there is.
If not I may try Body Balance class
Rugby at Telstra - Australia vs England
(Hope it doesnt rain too much)
Monday (long weekend public holiday yah)
Hope everyone has a great weekend
