I am starting out pretty good this year. I have already exercised for 3 days in a row, 30 minutes or more all totalled each day. So...I am feeling pretty good about my new attitude. I decided to STOP DIETING! And stop obsessing over the scale and my weight. Also, to stop obsessing over the internet. I am actually clocking my internet time. I set an online timer for 4 hours, and everytime I go online I hit start, then when I am going offline for a while I pause the timer. So I spend ONLY 4 hours total online. On 1/1/09, I only spent 3.5 hours online instead of my usual 8-10 hours. And as of this moment, I have just over an hour left for today. So if I go offline soon, I will get to go back on before midnight.
Happy New Year all! I hope it is a spectacular year!

Today we had our Thanksgiving. We made turkey, homemade stuffing/dressing, whole berry cranberry sauce, whole kernel corn, candied yams, and apple sauce, plus Dad and my S-M had gravy and my S-M and I had stuffed mushrooms. Then a while later there was pumpkin pie, apple pie, ice cream and whipped cream. And to drink we had eggnog and REAL apple cider (the pulpy, cloudy kind not the clear apple juice kind). I ate ALL day. Sugar-free and regular cookies when my sugar started to drop a few hours before dinner, and cereal for breakfast. I am afraid to track for today, but, I will do it anyway. Better to face 4000 calories and let go of the guilt than to wallow in self-hatred for eating so much. I guess it is a good thing we only eat this way once a year. Although, if we had it more often I'd probably eat less than I do on Thanksgiving. So...I think I will go track my food for today. Wish me luck that I didn't eat over 5000 calories!

Today was just another day. My eating was about average. As of this moment, I haven't yet tracked, but I will soon. Chrissy was hyper for a while then slept for a few hours. This pattern was repeated about 3 times today. I did 13 minutes on my exercise bike whle in between emails with a friend. So all in all, today was just nother day.

Hi all. I haven't blogged for a few days. I took Chrissy to the vet on Tuesday and she was so sick the Dr. wasn't sure if she would survive. Apparently she was VERY anemic and has a heart murmur (probably because of the anemia). But they gave her medicine and vitamins and now she is back to playing and trying to chase the neighborhood children. I am temporarily relieved. She goes back on Wednesday to be rechecked. She had also gotten her first Distemper shot and so a bit of her lethargy and her throwing up were likely from that, since now her tongue is pinker and she is playing again. I will still be on guard until they tell me she will be okay, but at least I can breathe again, for now.
We just bought that powder that you put on the rug and then vacuum up, to kill fleas. My Dad put it down in the living room and Chrissy and I stayed outside until it was vacuumed up. Dad had to vacuum the rug twice to make sure he got the powder up. I either had a reaction to the powder, a major anxiety attack or both, because Tuesday night (Dad used the powder Tuesday afternoon) I went to sleep in the living room with Chrissy, since my room hadn't been cleaned with the powder, and I started wheezing and coughing and choking. Dad had to bring me outside in the cold for a while, then I went into my room and put my C-PAP machine on and tried to get deep breaths. It was very scary. Dad was afraid since I had spent the most time in the living room after he used the powder, I might have inhaled enough to have an allergic reaction. But we are going to try using it in other rooms and see if I get sick again. Chrissy's health is on the line, and maybe even her life. So if I have to stay out of certain rooms for a day or two in order for the house to be safe from fleas, I'll have to do whatever it takes to save my baby!
