I've also started a core workout to strengthen my middle which I think may be helping with the pain issues I've been having, hard to tell yet as I've only been doing it for a week and I've had pain free periods of that long before.
The bad? Well, despite the exercise and the increased fibre in my diet (chia seeds and prunes) the mail is not moving as much as it should which is resulting in pain of its own. I've even resorted to the prescription my doctor gave me which I really didn't want to have to. I'm pretty sure that things are all tied up inside so have an appointment with my surgeon to discuss the pain and this problem next month. Really don't want to have to go back to surgery, but may have no choice. Myofascial release doesn't seem to be doing enough to fix it.
... The selling of stuff on Trademe has inspired me to go through the house slowly and get rid of stuff. I biffed 4 tablecloths yesterday. We never use them but I still kept several, the ones that were past their best were the ones that went, I kept those with sentimental value. There will be a heap of other things going I think, I want less stuff and if I can more money to pay for my dental work.
Anyhow, the reason you're here isn't to hear me go on, it's to see piccies of what I've done, so here you are:
|My 1970s peasant skirt|
|with an exposed zipper which I love|
|845m of Heavenly Wools Haunui Halfbred in the blackberry and speargrass colourways plied together. I'm yet to check WPI but I'm thinking heavy laceweight|
|and some Southern Alpaca with silk plied with suri alpaca, I think this was called blackcurrant, but I could be wrong on that. Much thicker, but has a nice drape to it.|
