Feeling the love, not the flame but I am working it.

Wednesday, February 19, 2020

It's got nothing to do with anyone or anything here.
I've been exercising my buns off (I wish).
Walks in malls as it's been too damply chilly.
I've changed up my Monday and ride the bike for 30 minutes then work out in the pool while DH is in the gym.
Wednesday is my Pilates day. Ride the bike to warm up then DD1 wipes the floor with me in Pilates Reformer. How can something so simple looking hurt so good?
Friday is my gym rat day. Finish all the strength training I haven't done during the week.
The other days are combinations of pelvic floor and hamstring PT. I'd like to add another gym or pool day but need to settle into a hard routine with the other days.

A cyst in the back of my left knee tells me it's time to visit the ortho. While my knee doesn't hurt (much) that's a sign arthritis has been aggravated or a tear has occurred. Perhaps I can blame all the stairs at DD2's new house. My right knee is also talking to me but I'm not listening.

For the first time in a long time I'm feeling my weight. While 215 IS high, I'm within my average weight for the past 10 years; this is the holiday 5 I found. I think I'm noticing my increased age. Yep. There's a correlation here, I'm admitting it.

Eating wrong then eating right. I've found new foods, recipes and methods of cooking but I still find those snacks.

Maybe if I write it, I'll deal with it.

    I find that it gets harder every year. And while I need to eat less I can't seem to pull it off. Don't over stress those joints. Hugs

    Age slows everything down, but our appetite. Oh my. Fortunately there’s heaps of learning and wisdom that have been garnered to counter balance this. Those five extra weigh us down, mentally as much as literally. Finite amount of time in front of us, the quality of life is my driver. Nothing I can eat is worth moving any extra. None of this is easy, Miss Behaving isn’t our friend. Time to silence your inner petulant brat and flex your strong. Ask me how I know?! Link your arm through mine...8 hour window to eat. Game changer. Call the doctor, listen to that knee. It’s talking now, soon it’ll be barking!!!!!!!

    Ahh - yes. That's why I'm blogging so much this year. I need every detail out in front of me - need it to process through the emotions to the brain where I can assign language to describe it. Yup yup. Both of TheBrains need to be on board.

    For the longest time when people said it gets harder as you age I thought - well, yeah, harder 'cause it's slower. But slow has become a rather light weight euphemism in the past 2 years. Stalled in the water. And I am sure some of it is age.

    I'm sorry about the cyst - get the to a doctor toot sweet!

    And thank you for the bloglove on yesterdays blogpost. emoticon

    OH boy. Yes, age doesn't allow for the same compromises the body makes for things when we're younger. **SIGH**

    Hope the ortho can help you w/the knee!
