And the beat goes on

I haven't been around much of late, I have had to rest my wrist a while, been bored as hell :(

I have been trying to think of some exercise that's not exercise but is exercise, does that make sense??? Probably not but anyway. I was thinking Tai Chi but now that I have investigated it a tiny bit more on the net it may be harmful to my wrist with the actions. If anyone has some experience in this, please let me know if it would be ok with RSI.

Anywho, what else have I been doing, absolutely nothing. I have put on a few kilos being at home, I have tended to eat a few bags of potato chips over these last few weeks which are showing around my mid section. Dazza also weighed himself the other night and I weigh 200grams more than him but he is about 5 inches taller than me. Oops

So although I will not be starting anything big or rapid, I do want to lose some of this weight, I will be starting at 86.8 kilos. I can't believe I have let myself put on these extra kilo's again although I haven't gotten to my heaviest which was 89 kilos but well on the way if I keep this up. So will start off with walks, can't lift weights because of my wrist, so also can't skip rope, ride bike or walk dogs. I really need to lose some of this weight if I am ever to have a baby, so kick me in the arse if you see I've slipped, I will tell you, I can't keep my mouth shut :O

I'm also trying to cut down on the caffine which means no Coke and limiting coffee to only the mornings (try not to shovel in as much as I can before 10am) and eating more veg. Can you eat to much veg. For dinner I would normally make mashed potato (1 medium potato) and a heap of peas, beans, carrots and sometimes corn on the cob, I do put a knob of butter on it and tend to eat this all before I start on my meat of the day. I guess when I was dieting before I started to think of any food as evil so this is why I stopped thinking of food but look where it has gotten me now!

Not soo bad

So the Workforce Solutions came out to my home today, I'm going to call her 'Rehab Chick' from now on, she gave me some idea's about exercises for my wrist however they hurt and as anyone who knows me knows, I don't do anything that hurts! She advised me on some anti-inflammatory cream that I can use from the health food store, just a bit worried that the stuff from the chemist could hurt a growing fetus (if there is one in there). Will possibly meet with her at work on Thursday afternoon to reset up my desk, she is looking to get me a fancy new mouse setup which I have never seen before or even heard of before. And possibly reducing my hours for a while until I am back to speed. The funniest thing is that she wants me to start using the mouse on the left side, ever heard of uncoordinated??? That will be me with a left hand side mouse. Found some pictures of the new mice she was talking about so hopefully work will purchase for me.

Dazza has been talking about moving to Queensland and I have seriously been considering it. Number one is that he has advised that if I agree, I can be a 'stay at home mum' and not have to go to work, this sounds like bliss to me, but I wonder if I still get the same conditions if I don't fall pregnant???? I am a bit concerned about leaving my mum but then thought, well it's only a cheap airfare if brought in advance and I would be happy to send her a ticket for a week a month or a weekend a month if she wants. I would also love for her to come and stay once I do finally have a baby for a decent period of time, not only to help out but she has been waiting just as long as me, for there to be a baby in my arms. So no decision has been made as yet as to whether we will move or not but I will keep you posted.

What's been happening?

Its been a while since I posted and thanks Kerryn for checking in on me. My last post showed that the pud is slowing coming back on, not that I can say I've done much about it. I have now ended up off work with RSI so unable to spend nearly anytime on the computer without it giving me grief later on and even though I love you guys, I hate pain more.

I have also started to think more about having a baby so the exercise thing as gone out the window. I, like many of you guys I'm sure, bite off more than I can chew. My main thought in doing so is that if I am distracted by something else I won't realise that I am doing something else. In short, I go gungho at something or more than 1 something thinking that the other will keep be distracted from the other and both will get done. In reality it ends up that nothing is done.

So instead I have slowed down, concentrating on one thing, wait to see how that pans out before moving onto something else. I have however cleaned out my wardrobe, put about 19 items on eBay to sell, cleaned out my junk drawer in the kitchen along with my utensils drawer, its amazing how you end up with more than one of the same thing??

I have a person coming from Workforce Solutions tomorrow to discuss my RSI so that should be fun NOT! Other than that I am bored, hence the clean up as the doctor has told me complete rest of the wrist but that is really hard, I can't do cross stitch or anything fun, I don't have the car as Dazza's got that during the day, so I can't do anything but watch the same darn Foxtel shows that were on already. Frustrated.....................
