Life is Good

We are midway through the first week of MS Awareness Month. Let's make a deal. I told my physical therapist yesterday that i really want a Fit Bit so that I can track my walking progress...that is, when I am "fit" enough to have enough steps to track. I'm not there yet. She suggested that I designate my "finish line" as the day I am released from PT. THEN I can acquire my Fit Bit, or whatever brand of fitness tracker I select. (There are SO many!)

I really like having a goal, a purpose, a reason to celebrate; so , that sounds like a plan to me.

My challenge to you: Set a goal for your self this month. 

Suggestions:
* Read a book about multiple sclerosis. (How are you doing with the two books I suggested last month?)
* Loose a pound or two.
* Walk a set number of steps a day.
* Clean out that closet and discard a few unnecessary items. (Have you tried the Kon Method?)
*Stop eating bread for the month,
* Drink eight documented glasses of water a day.
*Keep an MS journal and record your symptoms every day for the rest of the month.
*Adhere to an exercise regime and keep it for the rest of the month. (Are you familiar with Body Groove? It is a fantastic way to get moving!)
*LAUGH every day.

As I said before, I like having a goal. My goal today is to bowl three 100(+) games. So, I had better get ready to hit the alley.

Have a wonderful day.
 Life is good,
Lisa

9/11 Where were you?

Other than in March do I post multiple times during the week, but during my morning perusal of other MS blogs, I came across this very timely blog post. It reminded me early in the morn the significance of this very day: 9/11.
Any major event of disaster prompts us to reflect on the basic question of "where were you?" There is no doubt that you know very well where you were when the planes hit the Towers.
 Standing behind my podium in room 310 at Miller Junior High School, I looked up from my testing manual to glare at the intruder who opened the classroom door. I was giving a test. My students didn't need any distractions.
That didn't stop the neighboring science teacher who came directly up to me and whispered in my ear "The Twin Towers have been attacked. Meet in Steve's office next period."
I struggled to keep an unbiased face and continue my teacherly responsibilities. Several of my students were related to first res-ponders, fire fighters, and Nationa…

Alien feet?

Okay, so after my initial reunion with social media, I naively imagined today to be more productive. But, no...

For someone who doesn't spend much time perusing sites like Pinterest, my interest has suddenly piqued to the point that addiction be a possibility.

Hoping to find someone of like mind, I instead downloaded a slipper pattern I might knit for Christmas presents (oops, there goes the surprise). It looks fairly simple. Let me know if you give it a try.

And, then, I found this really neat yoga flow outlined for me.
Since yoga seems to be the go-to exercise for us Warriors, I decided to share. That way we do not have to invent our own personalized routine. You're welcome.




Then, I discovered an entire page of memes that put MS in perspective to the causal reader-reluctant  on-looker. And because  this figure is essentially in the child pose... well, you get the picture.

Of course, any information on foot drop always attracts my at…

MonSter, beware!

As I scroll through my correspondence this morning, I see a trend unfolding that needs a FIX, big time.

It is so very easy for anyone to become depressed, blue, or melancholy. MS Warriors are even more susceptible to this malaise because the MonSter robs us of things others often take for granted. 


MSLuckDuck, you are a super hero. Life gets us down, for sure, but know that your thoughts and words lift me up every time I log onto your blog.

MS-Understood, I am so happy to find a fellow lover of all things autumn! I lift my pumpkin latte (If I actually had one in my hand:) in salute of your day. The best season ever is right around the  corner.

As for me, the tears are a bay today. It is going to be a great day.
MonSter, beware...You do not touch me today!
