Life under construction.

Crazy, but I missed close to a whole year on Spark. Ready to try it again and need to leave my old info here as a reminder. I am worth this. I want to do this for me. I now have 2 beautiful granddaughters. I am still having issues with my eyes and have lost vision in one. I have no control over that, but I hope to be able to take control over my weight. I've spent a lot of time reflecting on my life and the people in it. I am a stronger person for it and must continue to seek my peace. ...

Another new year. Getting it together and getting back on track. Cut way down on my exercise after eye surgery. Ready to start it up again. One less excuse. Overall, I'm happy with my progress to date. 2013 brings renewed motivation! My plan is to track my food and exercise everyday. Cardio at least 30 minutes, 5 days a week. Strength training 2 days a week. I am also going to try to do a new exercise video each week.

I need to make a stronger effort to keep in touch with my Spark friends as well as personal friends. I also have to work hard to establish some sort of routine in my life. I will have to do that to reach my goals.

I have a beautiful granddaughter, Alexandria Nicole, who was born on 05/13/2011. All the more reason to be a stronger, healthier person! I have a lot of plans with this precious gift! See how beautiful she is?

I'm done with the excuses. I have COPD and use O2 24/7 and it is not easy at times, but the more I put into it, the better I'll feel and will continue to work as hard as I can.

Hi Alice, well thanks for the kind words. She's had this diet book for awhile now and kept putting off jumping in with both feet, so my son and I both agreed to go all in with her..Not without some stipulations on my part...My dietician put my calorie count a lot higher than what this book says we are gonna do...so i told my wife the first time i am feeling weird or getting overly hungry i am off the diet and to McDonald...LOL. But so far today it hasn't been bad, you get two snacks one in the am and the other in the pm. and i can honestly say i am not hungry but we will see about 9pm when the kitchen gets shut down for the night...but i will see how it effects my exercise routine and if it effects that i am off of the diet...I will support her like i have for the last 27 years but being hungry is crazy.....have a good evening Alice emoticon

Hi Alice,

Thanks for you comment on my blog. I really like my glasses too. So very different from what I ever had.

Have a good rest of the weekend. emoticon

Alice, Thanks so much for your wonderful encouragement and suggestions. I will talk to my pulmonologist when I get so see him.
I still haven't heard about my appt. so I'll be on the phone first thing tomorrow morning to my internist's office. The lady I had at the checkout acted very disinterested. I knew she couldn't call right then because it was lunch time. Then she said she couldn't call that afternoon because they were too busy..Did I want to call? I said no, you'll need to get a referral. I had expected her to call the next day but she didn't. I saw my internist last Wed. That's not good service. So, we'll see what happens tomorrow morning when I call.

I do work out at Curves 3 times a week. Walking long distances is difficult
due to my degenerative disc disease and scoiliosis. I walk better with a cart in the stores and also with my walker, but right now it's too hot here in Fl. In the 90's.

Once again, thanks for your help. I wish you all the best with your problems as well. emoticon

Hey no apologizes needed.I had a stroke at 47.still having troubles with my memories and thinking. if i get into rush and think on my feet no telling what might happen. Haven' t been back to work since then. I was doing respiratory study here in Columbus when I had my stroke..blowing as hard and long as i could into this measuring device and the thing i know i am in the hospital..8 days later they let me out. Once i was in the hospital they diagnosed me with sleep apnea cause they found me almost died from no breathing in my sleep..didn't like that either. And then came the COPD and all that comes with that... I get tanks from the VA clinic that i get all my treatment from.I am on disability and my wife makes just enough to keep her off welfare...but we get by..The old caddy for my Etanks as they are called was a piece of junk, a friend of mine got one at a swap meet and its like a Cadillac caddie.. It makes going outside a lot easier with the bigger wheels. I still find it hard to take a picture with my hose in even after this long...i was given a cat scan last month to check on my heart to see what shape it was in but its ok but they found a 6mm nodule on one of my lungs so another cat scan to be had in October.....but even with all of these set backs i am determined to lose all the weight that i have set my goal for and to get as healthy as i can.... so now we know each others stories we can support each other on our journeys if you would like.....have a great week.. emoticon emoticon
