MINI HOLIDAY
Monday, April 01, 2019      4 comments

Had the week off last week for Spring break. Went in to work for one day this week and tomorrow heading out to Vancouver for 5 days. This will be the first holiday I've had since taking my daughter home to Nova Scotia in 1998. 21 years seems a v... Read more
100th Physio appointment
Tuesday, September 04, 2018      7 comments

Had my 100th Physio appointment last week. Therapist wouldn't work on my leg since it was obviously infected somewhere inside. Searched out a Walk In Clinic for antibiotics before I was left stranded for a three day weekend without access to a d... Read more
TARGET HEART RATE
Wednesday, July 04, 2018      9 comments

I have been pushing myself really hard on the treadmill at Physio twice a week. I usually find it quite boring because I've never been a treadmill kind of person. Since it's the primary way I've been rehabbing my injured leg I try to make the mo... Read more
FINDING THE RIGHT BALANCE
Monday, March 12, 2018      8 comments

After taking it easy (yes, too easy) for the past 4 days I am once again back in the game. Senior's exercise group (mostly chair exercises) followed by an hour of water walking (my latest adventure) and then off to Physio where I really push mys... Read more
FEELING FRUSTRATED
Saturday, March 10, 2018      13 comments

I just can't seem to get this exercise thing right. A few weeks back my physiotherapist said I had to push myself. I thought that's what I had been doing so I decided to challenge myself by getting 10 flights of stairs a day. Spread out througho... Read more
LOOKING FORWARD WITH HOPE
Monday, January 29, 2018      15 comments

It's been awhile since I've written a blog so it's time. Recovery from my accident has not been easy. They tell you at Physio that no one recovers in a straight line. That there will be periods of progress that will likely be followed by p... Read more
COUNTING MY BLESSINGS: NOV 12, 2017
Sunday, November 12, 2017      10 comments

The last couple of days have not been great and I have not felt much like writing. I do not want this to become a trend so here I am back at it. (1) I am grateful for friends, be they online friends or the ones I have in real life. I look f... Read more
COUNTING MY BLESSINGS: NOV 09, 2017
Thursday, November 09, 2017      12 comments

Hello. I happened to look back at one of the blogs I posted back in March or April when I was barely beginning my gratitude journey. I had set myself the goal of listing 10 different things each day. In the beginning the task seemed dauntin... Read more
A TUB 'BATH'
Tuesday, November 07, 2017      12 comments

I know that most of us have a routine of jumping into the shower, a quick wash of the ol' bod and a shampoo of the hair before toweling off and hitting the road for work. I used to do that too, with nary a thought to how great it felt to be fres... Read more
THE DAY AT A FRIEND'S PLACE
Monday, November 06, 2017      13 comments

Hello again. As some of you might know, I live in a large apartment complex (150 suites). Living in such close quarters often brings added challenges that home owners do not have to deal with. One of those challenges involves the addition o... Read more
ON THE ROAD TO RECOVERY?
Sunday, November 05, 2017      11 comments

It has been more than half a year since I last posted a blog. At that time I was writing about gratitude. That exercise had me in a good place. Why I stopped blogging? I really don't know. On October 16th everything changed for me. While cr... Read more
TODAY I CHOOSE HAPPINESS
Wednesday, April 26, 2017      16 comments

Today I chose happiness. And yesterday and the day before. It's like opening a gate so that positive thoughts can flow in. I awoke early today and although the temperature was registering at -2C (felt like -9) I got out there and enjoyed a... Read more
TRYING TO GET OUT OF THIS SLUMP I'VE BEEN IN
Sunday, April 23, 2017      15 comments

I can always tell if I'm in a positive or negative frame of mind by the thoughts that form in my head. It seems that lately . . . I'm not exactly sure how long this has been . . . my thoughts have tended to favor the negative variety. I'm still... Read more
COUNTING MY BLESSINGS: DAY 10
Wednesday, March 29, 2017      11 comments

I have had a good day. I forced myself to get out and walk, even if it meant I was getting errands done. I sometimes find it easier to be grateful when I am outdoors, breathing fresh air. My apartment tends to be gloomy, with windows placed h... Read more
COUNTING MY BLESSINGS: Day 9
Monday, March 27, 2017      19 comments

I've taken a bit of a break from blogging for the past week or so, not because I've not been feeling grateful, more because I've been trying to recover from a head injury back in early March. Back in the saddle today. Let's see what I can come u... Read more
