    Oh my! Most of my favorite programs through the years have been sitcoms. I don't watch many anymore except for those in reruns.

UPDATE ON SIL

Thursday, June 07, 2012

update on my sil'S cancer. we took her to her doc appt and treatment today. not as good as we had hoped. the hormone treatment isn't working and there's a big spot on the liver now. she's going to have a different chemo from what she had before starting hormone treatment. chemo once a week for 3 weeks then off a week, with lots of side affects.

she was pretty surprised as she said she was feeling better with what they were doing,

one step forward and two steps back.

thanks for all your prayers.

    one of the side affects is something to do with the nerves and dizziness.
just when she was allowed to drive and now this. geesh, she can't win. she did have the problem with constipation. ugh!! seems like you take one pill for something and it causes something else.

ESMERELDA1220 6/7/2012 6:53PM

    There really doesn't have to be a ton of side effects....Loss of hair sometimes cannot be helped and it's visual so,it hurts emotionally, but nausea and committing can be controlled much better with the new drugs they have...One thing that is very important is after taking the chemo is not to use rectal preparations, make sure you are not constipated, use soft pics for your teeth...not dental floss...no fresh flowers in the house and bottled water if your water is questionable....most infections post chemo come from within ourselves...oh and stay away from the mall or crowded places..includes houses of worship....
Lots of prayers coming your way..... emoticon

exploring life: blog

Thursday, May 17, 2012

Exploring life: write a blog on how you will maintain your success when you reach goal.

I was there, at my goal. Yes, I was at my skinniest ever and a few pounds below. I was svelte!

I tracked my food and stayed in range, I did about an hour of cardio a day as well as exercising, body parts alternately. That was my thing, my hobby.

I followed the sp challenges, including 5 freggies a day and I don’t care for many veggies. But I accomplished the challenge.

Life has a way of intruding on the best laid plans. It all fell apart when I had to move back home for a month.

Now I weigh more and …don’t even want to go into the inches I gained…everywhere.

I know it is mind over matter…or something like that, but I can’t get back into that frame of mind.

Wearing my fat pants doesn’t motivate me to get back ‘there’. it’s depressing to try to find something to wear when you only have a couple pairs of shorts or jeans to wear.


Question: "What can I do TODAY that will help me to create or enhance the healthy habits the "future me" will need to have?"

Answer: reprogram my mind to do the things I need to do.

    That's definitely 1 thing we have to work on. How to avoid disaster (letting it all go) in times of high stress. I need a good period of smooth sailing to make any progress. We'll have to figure that out.
Thanks for participating!

    I get it - I feel like it is so much harder to lose the weight this time since being at and maintaining my goal weight a few years ago. But, as the others said, baby steps - We know what we need to do. We know what we did in the past that worked well. We can both do it again! Hugs!

    Take baby steps - try two veggies a day for a week or two, then three, etc. Do 10 minutes of exercise a day - you'll soon find you want to do more. That's how I've started back.

    You have had some detours, but that's all they are. This journey to "Health & Fitness" is not an optional trip but a LIFE destination. You WILL get there. The key is to persevere. Each day get up and decide you will make progress.

Sure there will be detours, refueling, rest stops and sometimes even repairs, but step by step you WILL make progress - just don't give up!

You can do it!

Press On!

P.S. LOVE your map! I'm part Cherokee - Bagstring Clan of Central Kentucky.

    I've been there and stayed there for a while...I had my weight watchers group and a rigid routine I worked three to four 3-11 shifts a week and off on Weds when my group met. I didn't eat big dinners or was near "hot" foods because I worked...no time for going to the bathroom sometimes...
Then we moved to Florida and my routine fell apart...and I spiraled out of control...and when I started working at Boca Regional Hospital ( a high income area) the chocolates and donuts flowed and the cafeteria was loaded with goodies...after I was diagnosed with MS and I sat at home, I hit my highest...finally I'm moving, but still having difficulty...I know how hard it is to get your head back in that place it needs to be, but Courti, I know it can be done...You have to get into your head....and meditate about what you can do for yourself....It has to be YOU who wants it...only you...you CAN do it... emoticon

    Exactly... Imagine yourself in a couple of years... Do you want to be what you are becoming... Or something completly different?!? Make the change necessary and make it happen! I gained 20kg in the past couple of years and in one month of a new lifestyle I just lost 7kg (almost half of it). Now I am feeling much better, motivated and happy! My life already changed completly and I am not even back in shape again... but I know I am on my way and already made the changes that will make me get there!

Can I tell you the truth? The changes were so simple I feel stupid for not having done it before and feeling bad with my body for so long.

I just put a stationary bike in front of my Tv and watch movies or videogames while using it (1-3 hours daily - I do not even feel time go by). I just have no junk food at home, but just healthy stuff! After the first week you get used to it and eating and counting calories gets soooo simple. If I fail on my calorie intake one day, I just get back to track the next day and by the end of the week the scale responds in a good way!
I also try to hit the gym daily, for 40min to 1 hour, just to gain and keep the muscles... In reality I only really manage to go to the gym 3 to 4 times a week... But I am already stronger and leaner!

Sounds hard??? I assure you, it is soooo easy, simple and worth it. Once you change your lifestyle and feel great again... You will look back and see how stupid you were for not doing it before!!!

Now... MOVE YOUR LAZY BODY AND LET YOUR MIND GAIN CONTROL OVER IT AGAIN! YOU CAN DO ANYTHING IN LIFE!!! LOSING WEIGHT IS JUST A PIECE OF CAKE AFTER YOU MAKE SIMPLE CHANGES!!!

Have a good life change!
