Average Grades

Today, Josh packed Lulu up and took her to the trainer’s for a week. It’s very strange being in the house alone and not hearing her click-clacking around on the hardwood. I’m already sad that she’s away, but I’m happy that something proactive is being done, and I have faith that she will come home happier and better-behaved.

I’m still in quite a lot of pain, but it’s better than it was yesterday. Any day I can say that, is a good day. Or at the very least, it’s not a bad one. Anyway, onto the weekly resolutions:

Last week’s goals: C

1. Finish my book: F
Well, I’m disappointed to report that I only picked the book up once this week, and I did not make it very far. I renewed it on the library’s website, but it may just be time for me to call it quits (or find the audiobook? we’ll see). It seems such a waste that I can’t focus on reading while I’m stuck in bed, but here we are.

2. Continue to get better / get out of bed and the house: D
I knew I shouldn’t’ve made this a goal. I was feeling better for most of the week, and making a concerted effort to get out of bed during the day, but that didn’t last. I’m experiencing quite a bit of pain and discomfort again, so much that it hurts to stand. I guess it goes without saying that I never left the house either. OH WELL. I confess, I am discouraged.

3. Not wait ’til the last minute to blog every day: B-
I did pretty well with this except for a couple of evenings when I procrastinated.

This week’s goals:

1. Work on a meal plan of healing foods and start implementing it
I’ve been living off of mashed potatoes and nutrition shakes, but I know that in the long run that’s not what my body needs. It’s just what has been most gentle on my body recently. I’m hoping that reintroducing some gentle, yet nutrient-dense whole foods will help my body get back on track. Pray for me, if you think about it!

  1. I really hope you start to feel better Kelli. I’s so sorry and sad that you are in pain right now. Sending love from IN.


  2. I’m so sorry your disease has you feeling so poorly. I thought it may be helpful to tell you about Realplans.com. a few real food bloggers I follow advertise it and I used it this week. It let’s you list ingredients to block from the recipes they give you. Maybe you could find some good nourishing recipes that way that don’t include anything that will make things work? God bless you!


  3. I will certainly be praying for you! I’ve been in a similar place (my health has had a mind of its own for the last several months which has kept me from keeping up with life – I just had surgery and I’m totally failing at getting up and getting out again!) and I’ve really appreciated reading your blog. Thanks for sharing your life with us!
