You Take the Good, You Take the Bad

Today’s 44 was inspired by the daily challenge for HappyFitMarch – set a new bridge PR.

I counted a right & left as 1 rep – fun way to hold bridge for awhile!!!

I pulled out another DVD that I haven’t done in awhile – part of the 10 Minute Solution series – Tone Trouble Zones.  This DVD came with a band –

tubingI like to use the band/tubing for extra resistance and this workout was a good one especially for my upper back!  I did all 5 of the 10 minute sections including the 10 minute stretch.  I’ve mentioned a few times that I don’t always take the time to stretch but 10 minutes isn’t too bad and this was actually a nice treat today.

The summer that my parents were divorced, I lived with my grandparents.  Every morning I watched The Facts of Life and wished that I could live with the girls at a boarding school!!!

I like the theme song – “You take the good, you take the bad…..”  Such a very true thing in life every day.  

Tuesday, I had to take some bad –

I went to our venue to clean and set up for an event and walked in to see the river floating through our place.  After I figured out the problem and took care of it, I mopped up the water then went down to check out the creepy basement.  Also flooded – water was still dripping down from the ceiling.  Not my favorite way to start a day but thankfully it has been taken care of and last night I was over there and the floors don’t seem to be damaged from all the water.

Yesterday morning I had another appointment with the DR who did my vein surgery last April.  I have 2 places (my left ankle and my right inner thigh) that have hurt pretty much every single day since last April when I had the initial procedure done.  

This DR said it shouldn’t be hurting anymore but that she thinks it is all fine (I have lumps in both of those places that I can feel and they are STILL bruised).  She said if it still hurts in about 6 months she will do some checking because it could have gotten into my muscles.

I’m not sure how I feel about waiting 6 more months since it has been 11 months already for something that was supposed to be “no big deal” and healed quickly.  I think that I will give it about 2 months and then look into getting a 2nd opinion if it isn’t better!!!

Some weeks, the bad seems to outweigh the good but I know that every week is different and even the bad isn’t that bad in the big picture!!!

And, to end on a happier note, check out our weather forecast –
