Still having trouble getting the tracking food routine down. Not really sure why. Maybe it is because it seems like I eat so much I would be tracking all the time. Sigh...I see the Sports Medicine Doctor tomorrow and hoping he will give me a shot in my right knee and maybe prescribe PT for my IT Bands. I went to Sam's Club this morning and I wasn't sure I was going to make it around the store.
I did make it through the store with only a few items. That was a good thing. I resisted the candy and chips. They sure were tempting. Got some grapes and frozen berries. Looking forward to some smoothies. I have an avocado, yogurt and almond milk. That will make a good one. The frozen berries, almond milk and yogurt with make a few more.
I would sure like to lose more weight as I have regained some I lost over the last two years. I am maintaining at this weight. That I am pleased about.
I was prescribed Seasonal Affective Disorder Light Therapy. I haven't started to notice a different yet. Hopefully I will this winter.
Maybe next blog I will have some goals to share. Until then, take care,
I have been struggling with my mental illness. I attempted suicide and finally realized that God has a plan for me. He will take me when it is my time and not before. I am looking forward to each new day. It is time to reevaluate my exercise
and eating habits.
I really believe I have been given a second chance to prove to myself that I am a good person. My self image needs to be built up some more. I know it is not going to be easy. I am determined to start each day new. Not live in the past. Let go and let God.
I know I am a strong person. I have lived through some very difficult things. I want my Spark friends to know I am back. I love SP!!
Remember...it is what you make it. So make it great!!
My joints are aching from the spring weather. The L knee has no damage to the partial, but is getting arthritis in the rest of the knee. Got my Fitbit Flex wristbands at Best Buy. Not taking enough steps throughout the day. Only averaging 2,500 a day...not good. If the sun would come out and stay out I might feel more inclined to go for a walk. Don't like to walk on the city streets. Too much traffic and people staring. We have biking paths and I may resort to going to one of them.
EMDR is going well. My therapist sure knows when to use it and he uses the light bar and EMDR more often lately. See my doctor tomorrow morning. Hopefully he will keep my medication the same. It seems to be doing the what is suppose to do.
I am on here a little more now. Just have to limit it for my shoulders and neck.
until I see my orthopedic doctor on Wednesday. I have had a couple of falls and my knee has been hurting. Besides I haven't been in since 2010 shortly after I had surgery. I remember the doctor saying he wouldn't have done the surgery unless I had lost 100 pounds. Well, I have gained a little back, but I think he will be pleased with the weight I have lost.
Unfortunately, my appetite is still just like it would be if I was exercising. I am hungry all the time. What gives? I know some of it is from medication. The rest is boredom. Now that the snow has melted and as soon as I get the medical okay I will start walking again. My friend and I want to walk together. She has a dog and he would love to go on regular walks.
