Well......if you'll notice, I didn't start off this post with a Day #. Wink Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Yep! Nothing!!! I am sooooo happy that it's stopped! Not only am I happy that I don't have to constantly deal with it but also because it's not likely serious! I'll still have the ultrasound but at least now I can breathe.

Taking it easy around here. Yesterday  I had a two hour nap. It was wonderful. Hubby made Salmon and an orange vinaigrette salad for dinner. Then we watched a movie. It was a nice, easy day.

Today we went to the store for a few groceries. Then home to make lasagna for dinner. No, not primal but gluten-free. Now I'm sipping coffee and browsing the web. Next I'll work on the puzzle. Hard life I've got here!

Life is good!

ETA: The wine.....yes, NM, it was quite good! It was a nice treat.

Well I searched for a clapping icon and had no luck. Yea for you and am happy you are keeping the appointment.

And your day sounds lovely. I've been taking it easy, in some respects, too.

Have a great, long, weekend.

Good to read the period is over and the pain has subsided.  Turmeric and curcumin in particular are pretty amazing herb/spice.   I've used it as a painkiller and it works as a great anti-inflammatory.  I believe it, also, helped dissolve a DVT in less than 3 months in conjunction with fish oil and tons of water while on sub-therapeutic levels of coumadin.
Wonderful stuff.
Glad you're feeling better and hope the ultrasound is good.

Oh, Goodness, one can hope!!!! That would be wonderful! However, my FSH and LH signify I've probably got a few years yet.

Another easy day. Had some paleo pancakes and peameal bacon for breakfast. Chicken for lunch. Not sure what's for dinner tonight.

First day back to work in the new year. Not a bad week - only working today and tomorrow. I like working, though, so it's not like it's the worst thing. Wink Our patients are pretty cool people.

I went back and looked at all my activity tracker data for 2018. I did just over 3.6 Million steps last year. I would say that's pretty good considering it was my first year at it. I started on January 4th of last year just on a whim. I had an old pedometer in my jewellery drawer and thought, "what have I got to lose". Well, after I got the walking bug in my system I just couldn't stop! Here I am a year later and still going strong. This year my goal is 4 Million steps.

I can't believe how much better I am feeling. It's funny - when you feel bad you know it but you don't actually realize how bad you felt until you feel better again. Regardless, I am grateful for feeling better.

I'm glad that the holidays are over and things are back to normal. I thrive on routine so I like the same old, same old.

Me too!  I had planned for today to be vacation, but came back to work to get a start on things but also to get back to routine!


Happy New Year!

Happy to hear you did so well with steps this past year. I didn’t figure mine out, I will have to do that somehow as it was over different trackers.

Ont -- I seem to thrive on routine also.

Wow on the step front! I do not have a contraption to trace and have no idea.

Glad you are feeling so much better.

Happy New Year.

Yeah, it was no small feat! I had manually kept a log with my pedometer so I went back and found that. Then I had to log into my ancient Garmin account from my first tracker. Then I had to add all that to my FitBit stats. I was amazed at the steps, though! You likely have many more than me.

I used to keep track of miles when I was walking daily -- but tracking by steps sounds even better! Smile Way to go!

We're leaving in just over an hour to go skiing. It's a three hour drive but that's where the elevation is. I'm going to pack some snacks and a BAS. Ski chalet food is pretty dismal. We'll get in about 5 hours of skiing and then head home. It's going to be a late night.

Daughter is excited to try out her new ski equipment. She's pretty good at it considering this is only her second year at it. She's able to do all blue runs. Hubby and I look like the retro folks with our 1990s skis and ski suits. But hey, why change what works? We used to be big skiers - mostly the rockies - before kids. Our equipment was top of the line back then and has stood the test of time.

Son will stay home with the dog. He doesn't ski.

Off to pack food.....

Great day skiing. I fell for the first time in years. Man, I forgot how bloody hard it is to get up! I was okay; only my pride was bruised. Embarassed

I was using my old skis and struggling a bit. I couldn't figure out why. And then it dawned on me that the last few times I've skied (since we sort of got back into it) I had rented parabolic skis. My old skis are very long and new skis are shorter. I thought I still preferred my old skis but, in reality, I had forgotten how much more effort they require. And, if you downhill ski you'll understand how important effort is to being in control. Anyway, I went and rented parabolics again and long story short, I'm sold. Now I'm looking for a new pair of skis. I was flying down that hill in the parabolics!

Daughter skied well. She's really coming along. We typically ski part way down and wait for her and then carry on once she's caught up. I think she's going to be a very good skier.

I'm not sore at all today which is good.

You had me laughing at that. Here's a pic of me that my daughter took because, ya know, it's sooo funny when Mom falls. Mad  In the moment it was taken my thoughts were, "How the hell did I manage to get HERE?!" . Very Happy

I can't believe I fell where it was so flat - idiot!
