its a hot summer...

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

..and i continue to address health issues, kid-related issues, school, and trying to maintain some level of healthy nutritional intake...it is so very hot outside, it is unfortunately near to impossible to get out like i need/want to each day to engage in physical activity...I cannot be out in the heat as it causes my menieres and my brain tissues to react negatively..not a good situation...so i am rlegated to more mundane efforts at weight control such as washing the car, walking the dog short distances, or exercising in the house...blah...but hopefully, when the weather improves i will be back outside on a more regular basis...
My children offer me such joys and challenges due to their special needs...they increase my stress level exponentially yet offer me sweet relief when they give me those special hugs and kisses...or simply behave, which is a rare phenomenon indeed...lol...
My school work continues to languish as i struggle to stay even one iota motivated to complete it...i have to do it but its like pulling teeth right now...I am hoping that by partnering with a dissertation coach I will be able to see the end of the road more clearly and regain my once-high level of enthusiasm...heres hoping...
Ok, that brings me to weight...i have regained the pounds I lost secondary to surgery and sickness, and I am maintaining a healthy weight, however, with limited activity I am having to really manage intake to the nth degree...when i was younger i could eat absolutely anything i desired without gaining an ounce, now i look at something tempting and i seem to gain a pound or two...its hard to adapt to my changing metabolism, but i intend to keep on the straight and narrow as much as possible...
Here's hoping to a successful second half of 2010...

    What about walking in the evening. Is it safe to do so?
Cooler and no heat.

its been a year....

Sunday, March 21, 2010

wow, its been almost a year since i have blogged...and so much has happened this past year...between my kids challenges, my increasing health problems (and subsequent chemical ablation and, more recently, brain surgery) it seems as if so much has changed...i am currently underweight secondary to post surgery problems, but am slowly regaining....I am not yet exercising per se (not yet permitted), but i have worked my tail off in my yard the past few days and am definitely feeling the effects of it...I am still wallowing in my PhD dissertation phase, i sometimes feel i will never be finished, but surely i will eventually be done....i am hoping this year will turn out to be a successful one all round...i am so very glad that i have access to the nutrition and exercise tracker here on Sparks.com..and i continue to value the friendships i have formed in the groups i belong to on here...i love you all!!

  


Its getting warmer out..yeah!!!....

Thursday, April 02, 2009

It is always easier to be healthy when the weather co-operates isnt it?
I am looking forward to getting outside more, working in my yard, mowing (push mower + big yard = increased fitness and loss of love handles...lol!!), walking, swimming..playing with the kiddos...however, we are in the midst of horrible storms today and then on Monday it is supposed to get cold and maybe even give us a bit of snow....crazy Kentucky weather....
Happy Spring to everyone....

  


worn out, feel discouraged...

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

Sometimes it seems that no matter how hard I work, my body has decided it will be at a certain weight and nothing will change its mind...I am tired and worn out today, I hope i feel more on track again tomorrow...

  


overdoing it...

Saturday, February 21, 2009

i sure wish i had better balance in my exercise life...it seems thats i am either wayyy into activity or wayy out of it....the past three days i have struggled to get in more than 10 minutes a day, yet today i spent 1.5 hours hard and fast dancing, went for a jog with the dog, and rode my kids scooter for a while...now i am achy and sore... when will i learn moderation?
