Bit & Pieces

I thought I'd do a quick catch up post on several topics that I just left hanging in the breeze while I was enjoying the holidays.

First, my mother is much better.  While my sister and her family were in town she went back to her house to stay with them.  She tried staying by herself when they left and has decided she's fine on her own.  We all agree that she is, and we've also all agreed to get her an emergency call necklace.  Right now, we're all calling her several times a day.  So far, she's not upset by the interruptions.  LOL!

Second, I have been released from going to physical therapy each week.  I have several exercises to do on my own.  I'm using that as my workout for now.  My hip is still tender and doing too much can cause quite a bit of pain.  I'll ease back in to more strenuous exercise as my hip allows.

Third, I'm still thinking that I'm having a good walking day and looking for my pedometer for confirmation!  I'm glad that I feel like I'm getting a lot of steps in still.

Finally, I have restarted hcg, after having encountering someone IRL doing it.  It was someone I just met by happenstance that I had never seen before.  This person mentioned losing weight using hcg and how he and his wife made it work for them, I decided to try again.  This is the end of the first week for me.  At this time, I'm planning to do three weeks on and three weeks off.  I'll report my stats at the end of each three week period.  That will be enough to keep me accountable but hopefully not get too boring.

I think that is it.  Let me know if I've forgotten something.


  1. Glad things are getting back in order in a lot of areas! I don't know what the hcg diet is. I remember looking up something on it once, but all I remember is it said the weight loss was from restricted calories, not the hcg. Now I am not saying that is so...just saying that's all I remember about what I read. It was obviously something by someone who was against the diet. You should tell more about it. I'm always up for learning new things!

  2. Good luck with the HCG. I don't think I could do it, but I have a couple of co-workers that had great success last year.

    Hope the hip continues to heal and feel better each day.

  3. glad you're on the mend , i'm gonna have to look up hcg as i know very little about it. much success darlin! xoxoxoxoxo

  4. Sounds like things are moving forward - that's GOOD. Here's to a stellar 2013! Wish you the best on your endeavors.
