New year. Old me

The new year has well and truly settled in. 
I have not made any resolutions but this is what is happening 
I've started the year 25 kilos lighter Than I was. 
I swim three times a week
I now walk twice a week
Still heating healthy
So I now am almost back to who I was before getting sick
I still cannot lush too hard or I crash, and the pain levels go up and down but I can deal
I'm only on one med now. Just my nexium for the hiatus hernia to keep the heart burn under control
And it only take pain Meds to help me sleep.
I will continue my healthy eating and gentle exercise regime hopeing to eventually reduce the pain even further so I can even stop taking the pain Meds at night
I feel like my old self. I'm remembering who I am and what I was like
And that's a good thing.
Also dealing with the almost physical pain of losing my best friend who I miss every day
But again. I'm dealing
It's going to be a year of healing for me
And I'm doing it my way
Baby steps and being gentle with my self 
I'll let you know how I go
See ya


  1. Sounds like you are in pretty good shape now. I gained something terrible since before our Thanksgiving. A whole size. (or worse) You have a good regime going on. Healthy eating helps a lot, but I haven't been lately. More (will)power to you!
    I know you miss your sweet friend, some things in life are harder than others, I kind of miss you telling us when you took her somewhere. I hope you are doing better.

  2. It's great to read that you are feeling so much better...you have done brilliantly taking charge of your health.
    I am going to give you a clue about what I'm doing with the hexagon cushion...recycling old doilies. :-)

  3. Good on you girl. Just a step and a day at a time.

  4. So many changes in the year - good on Ya Angela my sentiments also!!
    Just take one step at a time doesn't matter how big they are, one step means you are closer to where you want to be :)
    Take care

  5. Great job Angela!

    Better health = less illness, less illness = less doctors :)
