Back In the Water

Tuesday, January 06, 2009

I'm excited! I went to the dermatologist this morning and he said that I can try to go back to water aerobics class tomorrow. Oh how I've missed the water. It's been almost four weeks since I've been able to got to aerobics class. I can do exercises and movements in the water that I can't on land. I hope that I won't break out again, after being in the water, but we'll deal with that when the time comes. I can't wait! I just had to share!!! emoticon

January 2009 Challenge end of week one

Sunday, January 04, 2009

I've done a fairly good job so far, for this week anyway. Stayed in my calorie range, need to sleep a bit better tonight, I've done lots of exercise, took time for me, drank lots of water and completed the daily challenges. I do need to watch the sodium a bit closer. At least the water will wash some of the salt out of my system within the next few days.

This next week will be even better as I get back into the groove. I'm pumped!!! I can do this for me!
I want to be healthy and strong!!!

Looking back on 2008

Monday, December 29, 2008

One thing I like to do at the end of every year, is to reflect on that year. This has been a year of changes for me. Some good, some bad, some happy and some sad. (that sounds like a little poem!)
I am pleased with my decision to become healthy. It has had a major impact on my life in a very positive way. I feel better about myself and know that I'm doing some very good ,healthy things just for me. I'm trying to give up abusive family situations and my self esteem has improved accordingly. My appreciation for the little joys in life has increased and I'm trying to "take time to smell the roses". Despite all of life's trials and tribulations this past year, I am happy and content. I'm finding peace. This in turn has had a domino effect on those around me which has been a pleasant surprise. I guess I never gave enough thought to how what I do can positively or negatively affect others. Something to think about and write about on another day, another blog.

My sudden fatigue and understanding it

Sunday, December 28, 2008

I had an eye opening moment this morning when I was setting up my medication for the week. I was putting my Levoxyl into my pill holder when I glanced down at the pill bottle. The doctor had reduced the dose and I was starting to have this burning fatigue but was unable to sleep. Classic thyroid symptoms! I noticed that the pharmacy gave me 75 mcg instead of 150 mcg. I vaguely recall arguing with them when I picked up the prescription over the dose but somehow with all of the holiday hustle and bustle I forgot about it. I looked closely at the label and the directions said that I should take 2 pills instead of just one because they had run out of the 150 mcg pills. Here I was, tired but unable to sleep and feeling like my life is in slow motion! I thought that it was the steroids that I was taking for an allergic reaction that was making me hyper and tired at the same time. What a relief! This is so easy to fix by just taking the right dose. Next time the pharmacy tries to fill a prescription in this manner, I'll refuse the prescription and take my business elsewhere. This could have been dangerous for me!!! I'm so glad that I found the mistake and corrected it!

    I really hope you get feeling better. I could imagine the same problem happening with me. At least the problem is corrected now.
