Today has been an interesting day. I got up and went to church! It was Women’s Day and the theme was “Shades of Purple”. Purple is the color of royalty!! Don’t I just look royal on my new dress from Bella Grace Boutique with my lovely friend Lydia!!! I ordered the dress last Sunday and picked it up Friday! Talking about easy shopping!!!After Church I rested. I only got about an hour of sleep last night so my body was in need. I got up and cleaned up. My friend was supposed to come over. My old guy friend. We are working on our friendship because romance aside I miss my friend. He has a beautiful soul and our convos are good for the mind. We are ok until he says something or does something I don’t like and I want to karate chop him in the teeth😂😂! But hey we are working on that and my hip won’t allow me to kick that high so his smile is safe for now💁🏾♀️
While cleaning up I noticed I was getting very hot! Sweat started dripping off my head. I wasn’t really doing a lot but I’m learning to listen to my body. I cut on the fan, turned the AC up and sat down. It didn’t help!! Then all of a sudden I couldn’t feel my legs, my arms were going numb and so was my face. I called my parents to let them know and to let them know I’m ok! I text my friend and canceled plans. Then got a text from him cancelling too so that was good. I didn’t know at that point it would b hours before my leg function would return. Below is a video of me sliding my way to the bathroom.
I made it!! So my mom came over and got me food and gas for the week!! Thank God for my parents!!! I am so incredibly blessed!
Good morning. It’s 6 am and I feel awful! I just found out I’m off today so back to bed I go. I am still on the couch for ease of any assistance I may need.
Ok it’s 2:45pm and I am trying to get moving. My leg movement is better but very painful!! However, I have class tonight so I need to try and move around to see if I can do it or if I need to cancel. You guys know how I feel about canceling it!! Today’s motto is “one step at a time”!
It is 5:30. I stayed gone too long to rest before class so I am on a prayer and a spark! I love Spark. I feel like it gives me super powers. My legs are …attached lol! The pain reminds me of the blessing that I CAN feel them. #SilverLinings I need to see my class faces! They help me more than they will ever know. We lean on each other!
I am in the bed!! My body is tired but thankfully it’s better than it was 🙌🏾 One of the ongoing issues as of lately is the tendinitis on my lower back and the bursitis on my tail bone and hips. They make sitting or laying hard! I drank a rehydrate by Advocare. These are the same people that make the Spark that I mentioned before class. Rehydrate is so gross! It may be me though. I think all things with electrolytes in it are gross and salty. This is no diff but I chugged it. I’m praying that if I rest and replenish my body I will be ok tomorrow for work and another class…. or walking 🤷🏾♀️. Those little big things!!
I am also working on creating a routine for my mornings and nights. I want to stop checking my social media first and last! It’s taking up too much mental space!! The goal is to start and end everyday in peace!! For me this includes: praying my prayer list, checking my planner, texting someone and letting them know I appreciate them, declaring over my life, read a scripture and stretching. And I get to write with my pen RBT was gifted to me by on of my amazing, hard working, God fearing and prayer saying Zumba friends!This pen reminds me of the battle of cancer I already fought and won! But it also reminds me of the strength I have inside of me to fight this current battle. I can do this!!!! Tomorrow is Terrific Tuesday! I am expecting something amazing to happen! It can be in my life or in someone who is connected to my life! I get excited when God does whatever for whoever! Anyway …..I’ll let you guys know what it is when it happens! Good night!
