It’s been a long time

21 Mar

Gosh it’s been a year since I have posted anything and so much has happened in the past year. In October I had to have Happy put to sleep he was 16.5years old. Last Month Bebe had a cancerous tumor removed from her hip. I started a Go Fund Me site to help pay for her expenses but so far I have only received $20 in donations. I quit volunteering at the Spay and Neuter Veterinary Hospital in December and have been enjoying life as it comes. I am still creating my digital artwork and will have to add a lot of them to this blog so you can see what I have been creating. There is so much more but this is where I will start and stop for today.

I Hate Vertigo

13 Mar

This darn Vertigo has been going on since April 7, 2012, soon to be two  years Of  vertigo almost all the time. Oh yeah there have been a few weeks  that it goes away during that two years but not that often. I can manage to get in two weeks in a row of Yoga then it come back. Last night for instance I got out of bed and started to step over the dog and lost my balance (vertigo) and fell slamming my collar bone into the open folding closet door, landing on my behind on the dog bed, Luck for the dog he wasn’t on his bed but on the floor next to it. last year I had 4 of the Vestibular Manipulation  (Epley Maneuvers)Treatments at the Physical Therapist, Nope didn’t help. My ear have been ringing now for several months I have no idea if it has anything to do with the Vertigo, I plan to ask my Doctor when I go at the end of this month, (I better write that down or I will forgot to ask).

Time to brag a bit

18 Jan

Oh yeah, it is definitely time to brag a little bit. As of today I am down 41.6 lb and 38.5 inches. I have gone from a 40 inch waist to 28 inches. I haven’t had a 28 inch waist in about 30 years, I really feel like I have accomplished something wonderful. I feel great so today I bought another pair of size 10 jeans so I will have something to change into that isn’t too big for me and falling off. Also I can bend much easier when doing yoga, my belly no longer gets in the way. So I need to go to Yoga class more often now that the Vertigo has calmed down. I am still working on not spending so much time on the computer and have starting a crochet project that I will have completed before very much time goes by. I am reading a Book by Gwen Cooper called Love Saves the Day that was a gift for Christmas. Thank you Stephanie. OK I am all through bragging.

Resolutions for 2014

2 Jan

I usually don’t bother to make any  New Years resolutions, but this year I really need to get my act together and spend less time on the computer and more time doing other things. I’ve only read parts of 1 book in the last year, I will read more books this year. I’ve been procrastinating on  doing my hobbies, crocheting, making jewelry, learning more about knitting,  I do need to use my computer to make more graphics and stationery. I don’t need to  stay on Facebook for hours reading  the postings there. I also plan on losing just a few more pounds and  doing a more intense workout at the gym i.e. turn up the resistance on the machines.  Sensa has rocked my world with this 40 lb weight loss so I will continue to use Sensa product.



Happy New Year

29 Dec

Here it is  another year  gone, another year older. We had a great Christmas with family on both sides. Keith’s side came on the  22nd to have Brunch with us and then gifting. Daughter In law  is Pregnant with twins due in July that will make 3 grand children for Keith. n  Christmas eve we traveled to California to have Christmas with my son Gilbert and his family.  Our dog Bebe will be 13 year old on the 1st.  She seems to be doing well even with her heart problem. Happy the male dog is now 15½ and his age is really showing.  I can’t help but wonder how much longer we are going to get to have these two wonderful creatures with us. The cast got a cat pole for Christmas, they sure do love that pole. It is infused with catnip so they rub all over the pole.



Getting Ready for Thanksgiving

24 Nov

I have so many things to be thankful for. I am 40  lbs lighter than I was two years ago and 20 lbs lighter than I was this time last year. I am thankful for the weight I have lost, the way I feel and the way I look. I am thankful that Jesus lives inside my heart, He watches over me 24/7/365.  I am thankful to have a roof over my head, food to eat, a man who loves me unconditionally, five precious animals  to love and care for, two dogs and three cats, who also love me unconditionally.  I am thankful for my children and their families. I am thankful to to have eyes that see, ears to hear, a voice to speak, hands to reach out and touch others, feet and legs that take me where I need to go. I am thankful have God given talents, everyone get some of those. I am thankful to be a volunteer at S/nipped spay and neuter clinic, where I get to love on and take care of the animals when they come out of surgery. I hope everyone who reads this stops a moment to remember all the things they are thankful for. Please leave me a comment so I know this post is  being read. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.


I Feel Great

6 Nov

I haven’t felt this good in many years. I’ve lost 37.4 lbs using Sensa, my knees don’t hurt any more so I quit taking pain medication. I am breathing easier and I don’t get as tired when I go to the gym. My workouts usually last about 30 minutes going around the circuit then ending with 5-10 minutes on the stationery bicycle. My breathing has improved by doing the Qi Gong and Yoga breathing exercises. I am happy with my weight at this time but if I lose more or don’t lose any more I will be just as happy.  The one problem is that all my clothes I had previously are now way too big for me. I’m now in a size 10 jeans and medium to large top depending on the style, My scrub tops are mediums, I even had to buy new bras, the old ones were too big around. So if any one needs some nice extra large blouses, and tops email me your address and they are yours.

I call this creation Lady in the Mist.
