  • Staying on the Get Healthy Wagon

    Ok, so I fell off the blogging wagon for a little bit (much of that due to migraines and other chronic pain flareups), but the good news is I haven’t fallen off the “trying to be healthier” wagon. I’m still trying to exercise whenever possible (swimming or cycling on good days, doing some light aerobics […]

  • Day ll – Getting Healthy with Chronic Pain Diary

    It’s the 4th of July, so did some celebrating, but kept it pretty chill and close to home. My husband and I cooked out (butter burgers, chips, and corn on the cob) and then followed that up with some ice cream (strawberry shortcake flavored). I did get a little bit of exercise in by going […]

  • Day 10 – Getting Healthy with Chronic Pain Diary

    Hand still hurting, so wore my cast, but still went out. The pics above are from a cool park with a horse-drawn pumpkin carriage (like from Cinderella). I had to take pics with me pretending to drive the coach, and inside it. After checking out this little park, we went to another nearby park and […]

  • Days 7 & 8 – Getting Healthy with Chronic Pain Diary

    Forgot to post yesterday! So today I’ll sum up both yesterday and today! My hand is still bruised and tender from my fall the other day, so can’t do any bike riding 😦 Doctor said not to ride for at least a week. Yesterday my husband and I did a short hike at a local […]

  • Day 7 – Getting Healthy with Chronic Pain Diary

    Ended up in the emergency room last night because my hand was hurting so bad and bruising up. Luckily there is no fracture, but man is it bruised, swollen, and painful! Guess I’ll be taking it easy today, icing it a lot, and no bike riding 😦 Feeling a little bit down because of it […]

  • Day 6 – Getting healthy with chronic pain diary

    I knew I was overdo for an injury…went for a short electric bike ride again and everything went great, until I got home, went to park the bike, stumbled, and then fell, with the bike falling on top of me (and electric bikes are heavy!). I seem to have most seriously hurt my right hand, […]

  • Day 2 – Getting Healthy with chronic Pain Diary

    Today I went with my husband and his “little brother” (Big Brothers/Big Sisters) to an Elk Farm nearby. I was really worried about the over 2 hour round-trip drive, as driving aggravates my migraines and neck pain so much, but I prepared by taking Ibuprofen, muscle relaxers and using Lidocaine before we left. Luckily that […]

  • Determined to get healthy

    Since I started fostering kids, I have let my own health and wellness fall to the wayside somewhat.  I have been so involved in helping these hurting kids and making sure that they have what they need, that in some ways I have neglected my own needs.  I used to exercise almost every day and […]
