Re-set my goals

Thursday, December 18, 2014      1 comments

I have been really stuck in a rut. I didn't realize how bad it had gotten until one of my friends said "You've sure been sick a lot lately" on Sunday. I realized that I have been sick a lot, tired a lot, irritable a lot etc. I also have develope... Read more

Small victory

Wednesday, October 15, 2014      2 comments

I went out to lunch because one of my team is leaving today. It was sad and bittersweet but I planned my food and I ordered what I planned. I had one small piece of bread and left the rest there. This is a victory for me because usually I order... Read more

Catching up with myself

Tuesday, October 14, 2014      0 comments

I'm slowing down so I can catch up with myself. It seems I've been experiencing one thing after another this year. This weekend I went shopping and bought healthy foods. I cooked on Sunday and I'm set for the week. Yesterday and today I skipped... Read more

Ahh! So much food!

I have to consume a lot of calories to get to my minimum and it reminds me of why my metabolism is so ridiculous. It seems like I'm constantly eating ... well because I am. :) I eat about every two hours when I'm eating right. I haven't actua... Read more

I did okay not going crazy with the food. Now this week I'm stepping it up. I skipped breakfast today which I know is a bad thing but I just didn't feel that great. I have a bit of a headache and it's causing me to feel a bit off. For lu... Read more

Life ...

What can I say? Life got in the way. Ever since I found out my company was being sold and I was going to be out of a job at the end of this year I have been working more hours than ever before. The company sold on 8/1 and I spent the last two... Read more

It has been a long week. With my company being sold and me being out of a job sometime later in the year (no date yet) things are pretty stressful but I'm doing my best to deal with them. I hate not knowing my own future, it's just so scary. I'm... Read more

Been missing in action for a while

1 - MRI - no major issues other than the arthritis so that's good. I'm taking more medication for pain and some additional muscle relaxers etc and getting PT. The PT guy is helping me to improve my posture, build up my abdominal and hip flexor ... Read more

So I did it. I went and had an MRI on Friday night. It wasn't an open one like they said. It was larger though so it didn't feel quite as restrictive. I was in for half an hour and I was pretty much ok. I'm glad it's over. I will get the r... Read more

Couldn't do it

I have been re-scheduled for an open MRI for I guess Friday. I'm upset about it but it is what it is. I guess I felt like I couldn't breathe. ... Read more

Nervous as hell. I picked up the Valium last night and it was supposed to be two. One for an hour before and the second right before the procedure. The doctor only called one in. I need things to go exactly as planned or I'm going to freaking lo... Read more

Wow! This is kind of huge. On Saturday I got up bright and early and went to the Farmers Market. (Thanks for the suggestion again Snowmaiden) I walked around for a while and sat when my back started to hurt. I met a friend there and we shop... Read more

Hmm four days off plan and four pounds gained

Friday, April 25, 2014      4 comments

Not exactly sure how that's possible to be honest. I really didn't follow the plan but I didn't go crazy and consume tons of calories either. Well stress does cause me to retain weight or it has historically anyway and this week has been ro... Read more

Well four days off plan

Thursday, April 24, 2014      1 comments

I'm not thrilled with myself. I'm pretty sure I've undone some of the good. I just kept giving myself permission with every bite. I have to say it wasn't worth it. I feel bloated and swollen and my stomach isn't feeling so hot this morning. I'm ... Read more

and it might be a good thing since even though I stayed okay on caloric intake my ratios were very off. Lots of fats. I guess we'll see how badly or how much damage I've done in the next week or so. My appointment with the pain man... Read more
