Gosh, I was doing so well at kicking meniere's rearendolla. Being on top of this ball put me on top of the world!! The day before this Bosu Ball victory I took on the treadmill. I had to get rid of mine about a year ago because being on it gave me horrible vertigo attacks, sending me to the floor while my brains spun. A little over two months after we joined the gym I went on the treadmill. I was warned by the hunky hubbykins to be careful. I was. It felt GREAT!! Better than great. I sped it up, and ran. I, Kathy Woodbury, love to run. The track geek in me will never die. It. Was. Awesome.
Well....I think I jinxed myself royally because my meniere's has me beyond my normal wackadoodled self. It has been kickin my arse since the day after the wunnaful Bosu Ball victory. Very discouraging. I have gone to the gym three times since the 23rd. I usually go at least once a day, sometimes twice a day. Not acceptable. I was doing alright by Thursday this week so I decided it was time to make the birdies a treat. Some peanut butter mixed with bird seed and then smeared on pine cones and then rolled in more bird seed would provide a lil winter treat for my feathered friends.
Hunky hubby came home on Friday and I was doing pretty good until later that night. Way to mess up the weekend meniere's. All was not lost though. We watched some movies and did lots of snuggling and I slept a lot. We're talking 10-12 plus hours per night. I also whipped up some funtastical slippers.
I think meniere's knew that my body needed a good crochet bonanza so it reared it's disgustingness. It also reminded me I can only do so much. It, meaning meniere's is here to stay. There will be little breakthroughs like the Bosu Ball and treadmill. There will also be challenges. I'm always up to a good ole challenge. Remember, the inner track geek will always thrive for a victory.
I'm well on my way to opening up my very own ETSY shop after this week's crocheting bonanza. If meniere's didn't knock me down a few notches I may never had made the time to work on my aspiration of having an etsy shop. I will get back on that Bosu Ball and running on the treadmill again. That is a promise.
