Great Strides : Great Strokes

For me, Great Strides in gaining energy. I am starting to feel more like me again. Some mornings I get up and just start doing housework. I get a lot done too, just in the morning. It amazes me. It feels good. It makes me sweat. It makes me feel productive. It makes me feel better. Then later, it makes me feel tired again!! lol

For Damon, Great Strokes in swimming lessons. Something finally clicked with him in todays lesson when he was swimming. He actually did what the teacher has been trying to get him to do with his arms. Either hold them out in front and kick to the side, or use them to swim forward. He was previously going into doggy paddle mode as a sort of sink or swim mode. Now he is getting it!!! It's fun to watch him. He is making so much progress.

For John, Great effort in the gym. He has been so dedicated the last few weeks to going every day! I'm proud of him cus there are days I bow out. Like today, Damon is tired and I don't feel like going anywhere else. Although I did my walking workout, 3 miles already today so I don't feel too guilty.

This is what my energy got from me today:

Cleaned three bathrooms not including bathtubs
Did a load of laundry
Folded previous days laundry and put it away
Did Dishes
Did 3 miles walking video
Made smoothies
Played with Damon in his room.
there might be more but I can't remember. lol

tomorrow we head to Elmendorf, I meet with Surgery to discuss what we will do with my abdominal hernias. Hopefully getting them fixed asap.

Blessings to all of you!!!

  1. Wow, you're getting back to "normal". We're so glad you're doing so well. I'm sure Damon is liking having you back to yourself.
    Good luck tomorrow at the surgeons.
    Love you!!
