Tired of looking HAGGY!!

Hi, :) I'm a married, 46 year old mother of six. Yep, you read right... 6! :-) I'm caretaker of my Mom who has Alzheimer's disease and just in case I had a down moment they think I have Mixed Connective Tissue Disease. (ouch)

The only way I get through each day is with God's blessings.

I feel the need to find my new self and keep this disease from taking my muscle and fight for it.

I've always been a very public and outgoing person and that has changed. ...

I've always been a very public and outgoing person and that has changed. So? It's all about fitness for me, good place as any to start. I'm thinking makeover? lol Of course I mean of the muscular kind... I'm going to concentrate on exercising through the pain to stay strong enough to live another day.


Update: Just so everyone doesn't think I'm a total Non-loser (heh-heh) I did lose my weight, quit smoking and got sick, steroids packed it right back on. But? I can do this! I just have to iron out how! :-)














The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

Member Since: 5/3/2006

SparkPoints: 14,737

Fitness Minutes: 15,384

My Goals:
To lose 20 pounds. Feel better, look healthier and not so tired.

To exercise and to stick with it!

My Program:
I refuse to diet... (or at least to call it that). It seems so terribly like a 4 letter word!! :)

My goal has been to make better choices, a cup of tea at night instead of a snack. Making sure I get more fruit and veggies in my diet and adding water and lots of it.

Exercise! Move my booty 6 days a week. At least 3 of strengthening.

Spark... Everyday!

The meal tracker is my motivation, it truly helps!



Personal Information:
My full time job is being a Mom, to my kids and my Mom, it takes all of my time.

I love to help people and I volunteer as often as I can.

I don't have very many pics of myself... I tend to be the one taking the pictures and enjoy playing with them after, taking something simple from the back of a picture and making it art.

Other Information:
Favorite author for kicks and giggles is Janet Evanovich. She's like a mini vacation, I find myself cracking up! I also admire the fact that she leaves the nitty gritty to your own imagination.

Fav. quote as of lately is: If God brings me to it? He''ll bring me through it!!

I love to research and thrive on discussion.

Hey there Sparky emoticon
I am soo glad to see you are still out there ...I thought I had maybe lost you in all the mess of things emoticon
This is first thing in the AM and so there are things that I need to take care of but I will try getting that mail out to you during the day (sparkmail)
There is a lot that I would like to share with you being as I am sure that you will understand.....actually it's kind of funny...I was just trying to tell DH how frustrated I have been over the last few days and I got that kind of glazed over look from him and the old 'that's to bad' comment emoticon
I get it that it is hard to relate to this mess until you are living it, I was not able to understand my own DD situation until I was actually having to live it myself, but boy can it be frustrating trying to get someone to understand emoticon
..and yes, getting the dx..DD way of saying diagnosis in short hand lol...but more on that later
Have a good morning and hopefully not too much pain!
Lisa

My friend I am so sorry that I have been away so very long. I have had many changes in the last few months ..some good and some not so good..but getting more manageable. Now that things are taming down a bit I would love to send a catch up mail if you are still active here could you give me a quick shout out on my page or something so that I will know that your are still out there?
My RAD has been confirmed and I could still really use a friend that understands.
I am hoping all is going well with you and the family..wouldn't mind a bit of an update on all that also.
Lisa
