Been Lazy About Blogging - Update on Feet

Thursday, April 21, 2011

This last week I haven't blogged -- been lazy about it. I used to blog just before I went to bed, but the internet has been slow or I have been too tired, so I would say I would blog in the morning which hasn't happened. I want to go back to blogging daily - it keeps me accountable.

It has been a little frustrating weight wise. I have been in kinda of a plateau -- up a little one day then back down, but I haven't been able to break that 229.5 mark.

I have been exercising like crazy trying to get to my goal of 1805 minutes by the end of April. I need at least 60-70 minutes a day. But IF the insurance will okay the Synvisc and I have it next week, I will have to rest my knees for a couple of days. So, I have been exercising extra.

I saw my doctor on Tuesday about my peripherial neuropathy in my feet. They have been better since he gave me a B12 shot 3 weeks ago. So, he wants me to have a B12 shot every month for the next year. I am glad it was that simple. He also wants me to take more walks to help with the Vitamin D deficiency.

I was able to complete my baby granddaughter's quilt last week - picture will be coming. This week I am working on piecing my daughter's graduation quilt top. I just have to put on the 2 outer borders now.

    60-70 minutes a day is a LOT! I often do that much - but I usually have one day completely OFF each week. THIS week I will have 3! Ack! It's hard with so many church services and all this cooking this week... plus I've had time with BOTH grandchildren... life just gets crazy sometimes...

    That is WONDERFUL that B12 has helped your neuropathy! Absolutely FANTASTIC! Oh my brother suffered soooooo much with it... I wonder if his doctor had ever tried B12... *sigh* ... well - I am just really HAPPY for you!!! emoticon
