Today Is A Good Day

I slept a lot yesterday (had three naps for a total of 3 1/2 hours of sleep during the day) and last night I fell asleep on the couch at 9:30pm and slept till 8am.

I awoke this morning to 4 inches of snow outside and there was a message on the answering machine that school was canceled for my boys.  As I went for a cup of coffee (decaf) I noticed my oldest was wearing his pajamas inside out because he heard from his teacher that it could bring good luck for not having school today.  Oh how I wish life were that simple.

After breakfast my boys and I got geared up to go outside and clear some snow off the driveway.  Thankfully we have a snowblower so it made for light work.  However scraping the driveway clean was laborious as the snow was wet and heavy.  I guess you could say that was my workout for today.

After an hour or two outside I came in and decided it was time to clean the house (ok the main living area).  I was going crazy at the clutter, toys and dust bunnies that were everywhere.  I felt like our home was under attack by all this 'stuff'.  When clutter and 'stuff' gets under my skin I will stop at nothing until it's all in order.  I tend to be an all or nothing person.  I had both boys help by picking up there toys and drawings off the floor and table.

It's now 2:14 and I haven't had a nap.  I have energy and it feels great!

Tomorrow I hope to enjoy some of the winter wonderland by going on a hike.

Today is a good day.

7 1/2 Weeks Post Op - 185lbs

It's been almost 8 weeks since my surgery. I never thought I would see this day! The aqua therapy and physical therapy has paid off (as well as the surgery). My leg and back are pain free. Yesterday at my last physical therapy appointment I hopped, skipped, jumped and ran on the treadmill for 2 minutes! Pain Free!!! I never thought I would hear myself say the words: "I ran". My recovery time for this surgery was a lot tougher than the surgery I had last year. It feels like I can start to move forward. Unfortunately during my recovery time for comfort I've done a lot of eating. When I was actively exercising/running I would get a runners high. I think that was a big help to keeping me on track with my eating. The endorphins gave me a comfort high. However when I feel stress and lack of control and running isn't an option I tend to gravitate to food. Food and the pleasure of eating it is something I can control. Unfortunately there is a down side and that is we

Sonya 'Lost It'

Well it's now after Christmas and before New Years as I write this post.  I have been on hiatus for a long time on my blog.  I've been spending some of my time thinking about what I was going to write. I have been through some difficult times starting back in late October.  What I am about to write is very personal.   I feel a little bit foolish for sharing this with everyone as most people don't share their 'business' never mind posting it in a blog.  My hope in this post is to not have people feel sorry for me but that readers get an understanding for my situation and also an understanding of others who are going through something similar. Taking a deep breath. I am currently being treated for depression and anxiety and I'm almost finished with an intensive outpatient program at a local hospital (thankfully it's an amazing psychiatric hospital about 40 minutes from my home). For those who are reading this and have either gone through a depressive

- 4.4lbs It's a great day!

I've been stuck for so long at the 143 - 144lbs range I thought I would never lose any more weight so it seemed (7 weeks of being at that weight).  As my body has gotten smaller it is less willing to let go of the fat.  I think it's amazing how our bodies adapt to changes in our diet and exercise.  Today I stepped on the scale and it said a - 4.4lbs!  WOW!  Finally my hard work paid off.  I must say some of what may have helped is I started a new training program to prepare for my 12 K in addition to lifting weights again, drinking more water and being super diligent about keeping track of everything I put in my mouth. I'm feeling sore today after my Butts and Guts class yesterday morning.  I had a different instructor and my muscles have taken notice :-)  Today I ran 2 miles at a relaxed pace on the treadmill with a very small incline of 1.2.  I ran/walked 2 miles in 22 mins and 15 seconds.  Tomorrow I'm scheduled to do 30 - 40 minutes of cardio other than running
