Still Hanging In

Saturday, August 01, 2009

I'm stilling hanging in there. I'm trying to get in a generous amount of walking and I'm eating in a healthy way and taking my supplements. My stress level is still too high but that's to be expected until I know for sure that my daughter has stabilized. Just living life one minute at a time...

Getting my groove back

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

I'm slowly getting back into the groove. I've just been super tired but that will pass with a little rest, exercise and relaxation. Every day is getting a little better. I'm looking forward to a brighter tomorrow.

    I know how you feel. I am very tired lately because I am working 8 hrs a day doing summer custodial work at the school. Unfortunately this kind of work gives me a big appetite. I am hungrier now. Hmph. I also am looking forward to a brighter tomorrow and I hope it comes today. LOL.

I Control What Goes Into My Mouth and How I Move My Body.

Monday, July 27, 2009

As those of you who have been following my blogs for the last 9 months can attest, there are many things that happen in our lives that are beyond our control. The one thing we can control is what goes into our mouths and how much we move our bodies.

I would like to think that after almost a year on Spark People, that food would never control me. I would be lying if I said I am always in control. There are just those days when we give into temptation. It just happens sometimes and we have to learn to take the occasional slip up in stride. After all of the ups and downs, I'm still not going to give up on myself and throw in the towel. I can control what I eat, eating doesn't have to control me. If I eat for health first and pleasure second, and eat with purpose, I know that I'll be a much healthier person.

Eating with purpose is only one part of getting healthy. I have to get out there and move my body. This improves circulation, burns calories and exercises my heart and lungs. My goal for the rest of the summer is to do some sort of continuous exercise for about 30 minutes a day. If I want to do more, fine, but I'd like to get back into the habit of setting aside a block of time to do nothing else but exercise. I can't allow myself to become a willing victim of circumstances beyond my control and let myself go. If fate wants to force me to not exercise and eat for health, I'll go kicking and screaming until the bitter end. I have to be willing to fight for my own health and that I intend to do because I am worth the effort it takes to become healthy.

A Little Ray of Hope....

Sunday, July 26, 2009

I don't want to jinx it but for the first time since her accident, after taking just 3 of her anti-seizure pills, my daughter and I had a normal conversation on the phone today. It was the first time since May 11, 2009, that I've been able to talk to her and have her actually follow our conversation and not have me repeat everything 3-4 times and stare into space. I asked her if she could tell any difference yet and she said that she was a little sharper mentally. I could see a difference and am glad she could too. I could have cried with relief! I only hope this will continue! A big weight is starting to lift off of my shoulders.
