Reinventing this Kat

I am being brought thru another road of lessons & being tested again. And I cant even complain because I asked for it all. Why doesnt anyone EVER just stop me & my big ideas????

I really need to re-evaluate the way I pray.
Most of my prayers get answered.
God, Im sure is just a gigglin away. watchin me fuss thru these recent growing pains.
I know He was probably laughing with me...cuz He shouldnt be laughing at me...
would He?
I mean He is God...He can DO anything He wants...
Im just sayin.
Coming thru such a dark place recently w/ my health, I am gratefully on the way to getting my life back...but its not anywhere close to my old one, its a brand new one.
My energy is slowly returning, I was even blessed with a delicious, deep comatose drooling sleep the other night after pulling an all nighter the night before that.
But what I was made painfully aware of...is that if this is as good as it gets...Im soooo screwed!
The down time spent on my sofa for almost 3 months made me realize I have really betrayed my body. I havent been able to utilize all of my God given gifts because Ive been sooo tired...ok...maybe more...out of shape...oooops THERE IT IS!
HELLO we have finally broken thru the denial.
So I bundled myself up one day, did some rediculous & probably hysterical stretches in my back yard...I know them 8 lil squirrels we feed twice daily,were rolling on their chubby lil backs guffawing away...(lil ingrates) sharp little nut crackin, buck teeth chucklin away....
I plugged my new to me IPod in & Macy Gray, Pink, & I attempted our first day of power walking....
ok very funny...
Ill wait for yall to stop snickerin....
I got all day....
nuttin but time....
and the best thing happened.....
I freeking LOVED it! Who knew?
Yeah I know...that would be God again. Sometimes He is just such a show off!
Cuz we all know after hoofin & I mean HOOFIN,,,for 5 days worth of 4.3 miles (cuz I made the mistake of driving to count the miles myself) I was hollerin out for mercy with a very sore ass, throbbing ankles & the back of my thighs are deemed pretty much worthless this weekend.
Its not pretty...
but Im going back. It was suggested I walk 5 out of 7 days...so sweet relief for my battered & broken body till Monday.
Ive also begun eating healthier...drinking more water... Lots of bottled water...
I really loathe water.
And
Portion control. I eat my meals on a dessert dish not the normal platter sized dinner dishes we usually eat from.
Yeah, Im sailing this ship alone...
Speaking of show offs, my husband can eat what, when & where he wants & keeps his big bad hot manly body & doesnt skip a beat...
Im also trying to find my comfort zone with my new VERY expensive progressive lenses...although I have the weekend off from walking, Im still highstepping & performing triple sow cows to avoid steps & those damn sneaky curbs...but my bifocal lines are gone...and thats a GOOD thing.
I was working thru some personal challenges I faced after yesterdays Friday Group & came home to make Ronnie a homemade apple crisp, then I finally climbed the Summit that was taunting me by sewing closed this huge painted fall pillow. It sat on my floor open, stuffing bulging & because of my still un-cooperative post surgical useless thumb.
I was fixin to staple this sucker shut...with a power staple gun..I KNOW we have one around here somewhere...but the stress I was working thru...was more than enough...I am pleased with this Big Betty of a pillow I made using Barb Jones wonderful & whimsical design.







I hope you all have a magnificent Autumn weekend, understanding that although I do alot of complaining, there are always lessons, experiences & room to be the change we want to see. Im greedy...I want and deserve ALL the fruit of my labors....its just always such a trip doin the work.
