Body

Do what you need to do for your mental, emotional, and physical health.  This is something I forget to do.  I may concentrate on one area, but certainly not all three.

Blessings.

Day

Yesterday was like any other day for me. I live in the Panhandle of Florida. It isn’t that cold here, but yesterday was cold for me. I did way too much on Saturday, rested on Sunday, so I should be okay, right?

Well, I get to work and my right index finger is numb. Oddly numb. It hurt, with tiny needles-painful.

The top two knuckles of my index finger are purple on the under side of my hand. The top of my hand…again index finger is white. My middle finger, the top knuckle, was affected as well.  It hurt to touch. It hurt to type. I have had discoloration before, and cold fingers with my Raynaud’s but this was different.

It took about a hour, but it finally came back, with a very, warm sensation.  Truly odd.

Trying to stay warm.

Blessings.

Overwhelmed

I have been feeling overwhelmed the past couple of days.

I feel as though I have taken on too much…at work and at home. Nothing is getting a hundred percent of me. I feel as though I am not even giving seventy percent to anything.

Home or personal…class –ugh! I signed up for a couch to 5k…feeling completely defeated as my hips are killing me today. I should have been at practice last night but instead took a bath. Class…ya not currently in the mood which isn’t helping.

Work…too many things coming at once and I actually feel trapped. I am able to do my job but feel as though I can’t keep up with what is coming at me (not able to do what needs to get done at the best of my ability).

Too much right now…trying to breathe.

Blessings.

Ten Year Challenge

Ya, so I got caught up in this…

First profile picture:

And then December 2018:

I posted that it is a ten year difference, and 115 pounds!!

So incredibly proud of my ten years. I really am in love with my wrinkles. Really!

What do you love about the last ten years? But really? I am so grateful for my weight loss surgery and the gifts it has given me.

I haven’t been well the past couple of days…but I can guarantee that if I didn’t have gastric sleeve I would be much worse now.

I am so thankful for so many things…but especially my surgery.

Blessings.

Bones

Yesterday.  I had a lot going on at work, and wore the wrong shoes.  So last night, my body hurt.  One of the things to help me with my aches has been an Epsom Salt bath.  I also use a bath bomb, one that is scented with Lavender to help relax me.  Well, and a glass of wine.  With my bones and Lupus, taking time to recoup is important.  Understanding that my body needs to have a bit of help in healing.

What do you do to help you relax?  What do you do to help you with your daily routine?

Blessings.

Patches

Most days I am okay…some days I need help. My pain in my back and shoulder is manageable, with pain patches.  I wear these most recently two times a week.  It helps with pain management, and coping with day to day movement.

Lupus and the pain associated with it sometimes kicks my bootie. Detox baths help with my lower body, but these help with my back and shoulders.

Tomorrow is always another day!!
