Jackie's Forget Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

I am learning to live with chronic back pain because I have degenerative disk disease and arthritis.

Some days are better than others but deciding to take Tylenol isn’t a viable option as it slows me down and disrupts my exercise and I find I am in a worse condition where it is harder to walk let alone jog. Today I feel much better about not taking any drugs for the pain, and I can jog for a more extended period. 2.2 miles in fact. (3.4 km) That is the distance I go every day.


The only time I’m not in pain is when I walk and/or jog, and I hope it will only improve as I build up my core strength. I do that first thing in the morning after I roll out of bed, working my way up slowly to jogging at least 3 times a week. So then I remembered Dr. Ho’s pain relief therapy belt!

It allows me to jog comfortably, and I’m grateful for that!

I have been managing my health solely on my own (with the help of Dr. Google) far too long, and it was a concern for not having a doctor. Anyway, I found a doctor. When I stopped taking my blood pressure medication a couple of years ago, I started Keto dieting to manage my diabetes, and it has been working well so far 🙂 and my blood pressure is healthy too. I feel a lot better physically.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?


Some of you have probably read Stephen Kings book Mr. Mercedes but if you didn’t know there is a TV show as well. Season 2 will premiere on August 22 on Audience Network. The actors Brendon Gleeson, who played MadEye Moody in Harry Potter, is brilliant, and the show is even better than the book IMO.

Also, The Darkest Minds is in theatres. I read the book but never finished the series. So I figure I need to play catch up since The Darkest Legacy #4 was released and it looks promising.

Books I’m waiting for:

Kill The Queen by Jennifer Estep,
Queen of Air and Darkness Cassandra Clare’s Dark Artifices #3
Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass) by Sarah J. Maas.

I just finished

Tower of Dawn (link to my review), and I wasn’t impressed.
I also finished listening to Venom in the Veins by Jennifer Estep on audio. Lauren Fortgang is a brilliant narrator.

What I watched on Netflix. The 100 final episode season 5 finale! Damocles part 2 is August 8th, and I wish it weren’t over. I can’t wait to see what Madi does as the new commander. I love that girl! I also don’t want to see Diyoza die at the hands of McCreary. UGH! Somebody stop him!

I got some Fabletics (personal referral link)so that I can look good jogging in fancy pants lol. And sports bras and all other kinds of jogging outfits like capris. I love @Fabletics By #KateHudson! Use my personal referral link for special savings!

I received a few packages that I was so excited about. A new eyeshadow palette by Nyx called Swear By It. (magic link affiliate) I think it is just beautiful and the colours are stunning and a T-shirt dress that is so comfortable.

The weather has also been hot in my neck of the world. Since August 1st it has rained every day in the late evening and night which cools things down significantly. Also on my daily hike, I saw a dead snake ???!!! What? I never knew or HAVE NEVER seen a snake in Calgary before! And it was interesting. Thank God it was killed though! It looked like it was destroyed only minutes before encountering it, ugh!
That’s all for today. I hope everyone is having an excellent long weekend. I missed My Sunday Post yesterday because I didn’t get this finished in time. Sometimes formatting can be a bitch, as it can drag on

  1. I copy and paste my format for the Sunday Post each week. Then change out things. It makes it simpler and I can fill it in all week long.

      Yes but I am completely illiterate when it comes to WordPress lol, and I don’t have all the bells and whistles as you do. I wish there were a Sunday Post format I could use too. *whines
