My Saturday in Pictures

 Up early and alone in the house so I had a breakfast smoothie and watched a little Pond on Dr Who

  On my way to Zumba listening to my new fav music. 

  It wouldn’t be Saturday without a post Zumba sweaty mess selfie 

  Then in the car on the way home I practiced singing this. Hope I was ok

  I sang at Mass today. It was my sweet Thing2’s Confirmation day. So proud of her. 

  Yup. We really shouldn’t be allowed out in public together! Love my Sissy. 
  Another amazing meal at The Palladium to celebrate with all the family. 
  Now I’m curled up on the couch with my iPad and watching Smallville on Crave TV

Until later.

Wednesday Wisdoms

  So, even Dr B has remembered its been a year since my hospital fun. I have to go get blood work done and another set of scans in July. Oh the fun never stops. 

Then in August I see Dr B again. I know it’s just to say goodbye to him, scratch that: I HOPE it’s to say goodbye to him.  I am starting a year in which my surgery is very much in the past. That’s not to say I don’t live with reminders every sine day, however it’s time to move on. For example:

I can barely type this tonight haha because my arms are on fire. I went back to Body Combat this week, and wow. It’s clearly evident that I haven’t been using my upper body very much this past year. Time to change that. 

I may not have lost any weight when I see him, but I can proudly tell him I’ve been very consistent with my gym time and that  currently training for two events this year. 

So, today instead of doing my treadmill training I decided to head to Zumba class. I don’t get to them on Wed nights anymore because of work. I would rather dance in class than to do 45min on the treadmill listening to the Zumba music.  

  This is my instructor Elaine. Today was her birthday and she STILL came to class to help us all get our dance on. She and Nicole (my Thursday instructor) are the reason I fought to keep my memebership at GoodLife. 
So today’s wisdom is simply this: you get one life to make what you want of it. People will come in and out of it, influence you and touch your heart. Never forget to tell the people who matter that your life is better having them in it. 

Until later.

Tuesday Touchpoint

There have been many small steps in my life over this past year. 

Today I took another. I went back to my Body Combat classes. I had tried to get back to it too quickly after surgery and forced myself to take a step back. Learned a good lesson too. It made me super conscious of listening to my body. 

Today i listened. Today I modified. Today I had no pain. It was a very big small step. 

  
Until later.

Sunday Confessional: it’s complicated

Confession: a year ago I almost died. 

Tonight marks one year from the night I went into respitory distress and had a lung collapse. It’s been one year since a preist was called, and many awesome doctors worked hard to keep me alive….and of course I don’t remember a whole lot of it. 

I’m sure that is a good thing. I have spotty memory that’s very tainted by the haze of meds I was on.  It was my family and friends who lived through the rest of it. It was them who have the unseen scars. I wear the very visible ones (that I’m now very proud of) and I’m the one with the very lasting physical after effects. My love and appreciation for those who carry the deeper scars is vast and wide. 

Confession: as I read all the Bluenose Marathon notes today….I’m more eager to get my training back. I want to enter races. I want to earn the bling. I’m hungry for it. 

But for tonight….I am thankful for all those who prayed for me or actually physically fixed me. Every breath I take now is a direct result of all of you. My love and thanks are with you all.

My Saturday in Pictures

  First official day of vacay and I’m finally feeling great! So, that means up and out the door for Zumba. 

  Today I was grooving in the car with my favourite car pool fella. 
  We had a surprise guest instructor who did half the class! Kellie is amazing!!!!
  I made it through so a cool lime refreshing treat. 
  Thanks to Thing2 I am now a real Whovian! So much so…..

  I have two new shirts to wave my geek girl banner high!
  The hubs shared a new Turkey Jalepeno jack croissant sandwich dr Tim’s with me. Verdict: tasty noms as a treat. 
  As always. Goofballs for life. 
  This was my view from my car in the Costco parking lot while Shawn loaded the car. I would need a step ladder to get in that thing! 
  Thing2’s dresses came in!! Previews only. 
  Watched some Dr (will admit I sobbed at the end of Tennant’s run as the Dr) 
  

 Just so you know we had precious cargo in the back seat on the way home. It lead to this…..

The first BBQ of the year!!!
Now I’m curled up and will read for a while. 

Until later.
