Moving right a long.

Monday. I woke up with what I think was pretty good sensation in my right foot. The sensation of rubber bands  stuck around my toes seems to be decreased.  BUT I am also really analyzing each sensation for possible recovery. My body is still sore from Saturday’s excitement. In addition, I seem to have a …

Fatigue

Whew.  I have been experiencing some fatigue. I think it is related to the DARK dark, and the added workouts. I feel a lot better, more balanced, and put together.  In other words, I’m able now to THINK about the fact that my house is a bit of a wreck, I should wear more makeup …

improvement…

So… I’m continuing to improve.  Actually I have not noted much improvement since the weekend, but I am not getting worse.  I’m at a bit of a standstill. When I take Motrin, I really feel pretty pain free.  At some point, I always forget that I took motrin, and think..Ooooh, I can run again.  Then …

Hump Day & Thursday

The wise men rode camels, so hump day in the first week of Advent is totally acceptable. I was ok today.  having a bit of frustration about essentially being used by my old job.  I am super annoyed that I am still essentially contracted to be doing their work, and having to go back and …

monday monday

I woke up for work today feeling HORRIFIC. My head hurt, my leg hurt, my back hurt.  I don’t think there was anything on me that didn’t hurt. I walked the dog, mailing some Christmas cards… I then headed off to work grumpily.  As I’ve said, adjusting to the new job has not been that …

Oh my….

What an unusual day. I got up…felt pretty OK… And by OK, I was able to walk the dog, deal with his output…and get back to the couch position. I tend to be pretty optimistic, so I was like, OK, gonna be a good day. By 10 am, I was really bored with Facebook, Daily …
