Out and About

Sunday, February 08, 2009

Doing my chores yesterday left me free to go and photograph things for my husband and help him take inventory at his warehouse today. First I'm going to make us a healthy breakfast. Second, I'll pack several healthy snacks and some water to take with us. I won't forget to take my camera bag and some extra batteries. I'll also bring a book to read just in case I finish early with my part. This will keep me from getting bored and eating mindlessly. Maybe I can also take a walk around the parking lot before hubby is finished with his part. It should be a very creative day for me with setting up the shots etc. and I should be able to get in a little exercise too.

Today I'm going to bite the bullet and do some long overdue chores. Hubby's at work and the dogs are napping a bit. I'll just catch up on a few things - doing so helps me feel more in control of my life. I'm feeling good today too. I'll do my weight routine once my chores are out of the way. That should warm me up a bit. It's still fairly cool today for Florida. Maybe we'll get some much needed rain. My flowers could use it.

Sounds like a good day to me....enjoy it all.

TGIF -It's a Great day!

Friday, February 06, 2009

Here it is, Friday already! Where has the week gone? Spark People has really helped me to constructively fill my days since I hurt my foot. emoticon! Hubby is going to take me to Wal Mart again so I can get out of the house and walk around. I can really use the exercise. How many times can I vacuum the house in order to move around? Crutch vacuuming is going to become a new Olympic event! Crutch walking in circles in the living room just doesn't cut it! Only 16 days to go until the doctor x-rays my foot and tells me when I can get out of this boot! But who's counting? lol

Have a great weekend everyone! We can do this!!! YES WE CAN!!!! emoticon

I am blessed

Thursday, February 05, 2009

As I sit here reading the comments on my blogs and Spark Page as well as my emails, it hits me that I am really truly blessed. The people I have met here have touched me, supported me and given me that little extra push that has kept me going. It is humbling to think about how I have been loved and supported through all of my trials and tribulations of the last 3 months. God works in very interesting ways and makes himself known to us through a multitude of avenues. I feel his presence and grace most of the time but especially when others reach out to me. I am thankful for all of you who have touched my life.

    I do have to agree with you as we are all truly blessed to be able to get to know one another. I don't have the same trials as you but with everyone's support I know I can do this .

Things could be worse.....

Tuesday, February 03, 2009

Well here I was having a pity party after talking to my doctor's office this morning. He reduced my thyroid meds again and I'm afraid that I'll gain weight. So I decided to do my SP huddles to kind of raise my spirits a bit. When I do the huddles, I usually try to offer support to anyone who indicates a need for it. So, that's what I started out doing. When I read this one person's page and blog I thought to myself, "Self, what are you whining about? Here is a person who is in dire straits and you're down because of your thyroid meds? Pull yourself up and get on with it already!!!" So, I started offering them words of encouragement and suddenly I felt better too. In helping someone else, I remembered just how good my life actually is and how petty I was being. Now I don't feel sorry for myself any more - I feel like I've actually been blessed with a pretty great lot in life. I guess that's the whole purpose of the message boards, emails and huddles. They give us the boost we need to get our motors started. Thanks Spark People for providing that much needed place for us to go to get that little boost every day.

    Take heart....I was on thyroid pills and they took me off them cold turkey because of nodules growing on my thyroid now. They want to see if the growths are being stimulated by the med. SIGH

Like you...I panicked. Then I thought...ok, before I started here and I was on the Med's..I was not losing any weight. Yes, I gained weight without the med but once on it , all I did was sort of level out.

I have gone back to eating every three hours....and moving for 10 minutes three times a day...and eating a protein /carb combination. NO carbs alone. LOL And I am still losing. At first as your body adjusts, you may find a weight gain. I did for about three weeks and then starting on the downslope again.

Good luck...keep fighting the good fight.
