Day 2, 3 and 4

Sunday, January 22, 2012

Day 2 and 3 went well, not perfect but I did good. I am already on day 4. It is going fast. There is so much to do with leaving for a little vacation this week. The pink method is very easy to follow food wise so I least I don't have to worry about that! Have to remember to take my dvds because I will be starting the exercise while I am gone. I can't wait to start the exercise part :0)

Day 4 is going well. I am a bit tired but feeling good so I am still excited. I can't weigh in because my kids have broken my scale. It won't consistently read the same weight when I get on off and back on. I at least feel good and my clothes feel good too

just keep swimming, just keep swimming, what do we do we swim, swim...

Finally an answer and a new journey

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

After countless years of pain and my whole body slowly falling to pieces I finally have a name for what I have been going through. The celiacs was one peice but I finally found the missing piece, fibromyaslia. It is still hard to get my head around still but to speak it makes it real and I finally have hope because I know what is happening. Now begins the New Journey!! It was a rough road to get this answer now the road to figure out what is best for my body is here. I know it will be long but a long road with hope is much better then the endless journey that I just finished! Here I go. :0)

    Just talking about and learning is the first step. You can do this. It is not an easy road and it will always be there, but you can do it. learning and trying a few things at a time will be the best. But remember after a while you know what is best for you body. You can learn when it might be worse and things that will affect you.

One step at a time. That is how I take each day. And try to make each day the best you can no matter what. Always try and find something positive about it. No matter how small and simple it may be. Don't always look to the pain and the bad. A good attitude can help tons.

One pound away.

Thursday, September 08, 2011

I am one pound away from losing 40lbs after my 4th baby. It has been a painful struggle but not in the ways you may think.

These last few years have been such a struggle health wise. Learning about the boys' food allergies, finding out I have celiacs, figuring out the pain that isn't related to the celiacs is my gallbladder and finding that my body is responding very poorly to a lot of foods. it has just been painful.

I recently re-injured my neck injury from a car accident I had in 2005. It was hard to stand myself in all the pain.

I don't believe that anyone should have to be in that much pain for such a long time. It is a dark place. I am so thankful I have found the essential oils, they have helped me so much! It is still hard to believe that some lil oils helped that much. I was very hopeless and so thankful to find such pure, high quality oils that are helping my body heal itself!

Letting the body heal takes time, it's not over night. I am just thankful to be feeling a little better each day.

I do have to stay mindful off all the things that hurt my body, cus no amount of oils are going to keep those foods from damaging my body more. I have to keep harming foods out of my body unless I want to add the pain back to my body.

Now the next element is the exercise. I have to get it consistent again. My body feels so much better with exercise!!! I want to feel stronger again!

I am so thankful for the little improvements, the little losses in weight, it is all adding up to feeling a lot better. I still have a ways to go but I am so thankful for where I am now.

Life Lessons

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

Right now it's about life lessons. The kids grow too fast and I can never do everything I want to with them plus all the things that need to get done around the house. I have to see what I can do and do it, what I can't do and let it go and know the things I can't change are not up to me.

I have 24 hrs each day and I want to use them well.

I need to workout when I can even if it's for a few minutes. Don't push my body too hard and hurt it or i will be able to do even less. Push it enough to reach my limits and see I can do more than I think I can. Since I re injured my neck all I can do it what I can do and I am going to re build my body step by step as it's healing and make it stronger so I don't ever injure it like this again. I can't do all that I want but I can do something and that is better than nothing.

Each day is a precious gift. I can use it and respect those who I've lost their life or I can waste it and sour the gift that so many have given up. I am going to chose to honor those who have lost the battle and treat everyday like gift.

I want to so much to help others. All I can do is share what I know and leave the choice in their hands. I can't decide for them or make them do anything. I can't make people except my help.

I want to do more than I can for my kids but if I give what I have, that is what they really need. Some days I need to remember my place. Today I choose to be thankful and grateful for all that I have and for each and every person in my life. It's one of those days.

    These are great goals. I'm needing to make goals and stick with them. I'm hoping I'll manage to get everything done sooner rather than later. Just do what you can and always be thankful that you are alive.

    Sounds to me like you have all the right ideas but are struggling to put them into play. You'll get there hon! No one's perfect. Take it from me your kids will grow up fast. Enjoy them while they are young. You're so very important too. Good luck!
