Cortisone is Kicking In….

April 2, 2015

I woke up feeling great Wednesday morning so I’m thinking that the cortisone shot is kicking in. I slept pretty good (of course the Advil PM helps) I felt less discomfort when I first got out of bed, and pulling on my shirt and getting dressed felt better. I have a large sheet of PT to do at home that takes about 30 minutes and I got that done with little pain too!

I was excited to get to go to Jazzercise yesterday after working at the Food Truck. Well, apparently I wasn’t as excited as I thought that I was…….I was into some serious File Deleting on my computer when I got home from working at the Food Truck when I realized the time had slipped away from me and I completely forgot about Jazzercise!

I went for a walk. It was gorgeous outside again yesterday, so I had a great 3.5 mile walk and I WILL go to Jazzercise today!

It was 8 weeks ago today that I broke my collarbone and put a big hold on my fitness plan for February and March. Between the time that has passed for that to heal, and getting the cortisone shot in the other shoulder, I’m feeling good to go for April. If I can just behave myself and not mess anything up!

I really want to work on only eating 26 points a day and finally get my weight back out of the 170’s!! That number “7” is kinda pissing me off. In saying that, I ate 29 points yesterday. Urg.

Okay….here are yesterday’s eats.

Today I will ONLY eat 26 points, and they will be delicious!


Toast, Egg, Avocado

Grapes, Banana, 1 T. Almond Butter





Food Truck Cowboy Skillet


Chicken, Sausage, Zucchini, Potatoes, Mushrooms, Aioli…..about a 1/2 C.

Weight Watcher’s Points Plus

I can eat 26 PPV a day.

I can earn Activity Points by doing exercise, and eat them if I choose.

I have an allowance of 49 extra points that I can dip into throughout the week if I choose.

I should drink a minimum of 6 (8 oz) glasses of water each day.

This is What I Will Accomplish in 2015

    I was having all sorts of computer issues during that blog post, so not sure what happened to my comment box, but I think I’ve fixed it. Thank’s for letting me know! 🙂

    I’ll have to check out the 365 days of slow cooking. I do love a slow cooker! And…I would be interested to read her blogging info. Usually when I read that stuff, I get all confused again. I’m a mess.

    You have a wonderful Easter too Nancy, and thanks for being one of those readers that I was talking about!

  3. Your THANK YOU blog has no comment box.
    You work so hard at your blog you deserve to get paid for it.

    So you know I don’t know anything so I’m thankful that you share your blog.
    I was looking for something and came across this blog: 365 days of slow cooking. She said so many questions come up about blogging that she did some research and came up with 65+ things to help you blog. Maybe there is a few for you.
