Well here we are blessed to see another year! John and i started the day at the gym and for dinner we had pork! Great way to start, right!? He also went fishing this evening because apparently he hasn’t fished since last year 😂. We have many goals for the upcoming year. We will try and stay focused but our number one goal is always to live a happy and healthy life. I’ve recently been diagnosed with adenomyosis so i will be having a surgery in the upcoming months. I’d like to be as healthy as possible going into that so i have a quick recovery!
When it’s 100° outside you either play in the water or on the water. We made sure to get our morning workout in bright and early to beat the extremes heat! The morning views were gorgeous! We quick grabbed some coffee and a breakfast sandwich from our favorite shop in town and then it was time to play!
We opted for fishing on the boat, of course. It was hot hot but once you were in the middle of the lake it was tolerable. Sadly I think the fish were hiding from the heat , but a day on the boat is never a waste of a day!
We returned home to a delicious home cooked meal that mom had prepared for us!!! After a nice dinner, we headed home BUT not before stopping for some ice cream at our favorite place. “It’s on the way” 😂
This week my oldest bonus daughter turned 16! We celebrated with family! Elizabeth chose sausage biscuit and gravy for her birthday meal and cobbler for her dessert. My husband made everything from scratch and it was delicious as usual!
This week at work started off normal but mid week my nanny boy fell ill. He was miserable and it broke my heart. My nanny girls and i stayed busy, while the little guy rested upstairs with his mom. He went to the doctor and we found out he had strep. Never fun at any age! Friday the oldest had her valentines party at school and she was so excited to show me all the treats and cards she received.
Mom completed part 2 of her cataract surgery. Both parts went great and she can already see so much better!
John and i continue to workout daily. We try to have a good mix of cardio, lifting and stretching. As always we continue to cook healthy and fresh food!
We also celebrate our 3 year dating anniversary by just hanging out and enjoying doing what we love together!
Ok so the pain in my side is not going away but it’s dull compared to what it was at the beginning of the week. Is this all hernia related or is it the endometriosis? Either way i need to learn how to live a normal life without increasing the pain.
Saturday morning we went to the gym. I had not worked out for 5 days and my body doesn’t love that. I just did a nice easy mile walk. I did some arm exercises with the lightest dumbbells they had and not too many sets. Low impact but better than no impact! Also wore colored leggings for the first time ever!
Saturday evening our friends invited us over for dinner. They both work in the medical field and have been so great in giving me advice on my current situation.
They made creamy Italian pasta for dinner. It was all gluten free and they made mine separate with bacon instead of sausage and my sauce didn’t have garlic in it. Lol 😂 darn allergies but they are so awesome to make me a plate of my own. We also had salad and delicious GF cheddar biscuits. For dessert we brought a GF blueberry cobbler. Oh my goodness paired with some vanilla ice cream, it was perfect! Proud of my husband for putting it all together!
After dinner we played two games and shared lots of laughs. We played Mixed Doubles and Farkle. Both games were new to us but easy to learn. John loved Farkle because he is a gambling man. He also won so i guess gambling is a good idea.
My day wasn’t pain free, but it was nice to get off the couch. Hoping to continue to take steps forward over the next few days and also resting as much as possible!
