CHRISSYMOM62508's Recent Blog Entries

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!

    I hard ever watch TV anymore, so I don't worry about the time I spend on-line, since I use to watch TV about4 hours a day, or at least, have it on. I didn't even watch the Rose Parade yesterday. I'd seen it so many years, that I just wasn't interested.

I'm Back in College!!!!

Thursday, December 11, 2008

Hey Ho everybody. Anyone reading this blog. Today I officially re-registered to go back to college and finish the last 3 semesters of my MIBCA degree. For anyone not in medicine that is a Medical Billing and Coding Associates Degree. I have a mere 6 classes remaining and should finish in October 2009! Medically permitting. I tend to have trouble with managing to take classes for more than 3 semesters in a row. I get too sick from medically caused stress and physical stress. But, I will overcome the stress. And I will PREVAIL! And maybe once I finish this degree, I will go back and get an AS degree in Computer Sciences.

Chrissy is doing really well. She is getting slightly bigger. And MUCH MORE hyper! But she is the love of my heart and my life!! And I would die for if she needed me too. She might be just a puppy to some people, but to me, she is as much my baby as my sister's human children are to her! And this will be her 1st Christmas (which happens to be her proper name) and she will be 6 months old on that day!!!! I am hoping to buy her a bunch of toys and special treats to open on Christmas day. I have a video camera to catch her reactions to her presents, I am hoping she will tear the wrapping paper right off the toys. I'll keep you all posted about the holidays. Happy Holidays to you all!

Thanksgiving Tuesday

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

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!

    Last year I tracked my Thanksgiving meal (we eat about 2 P.M. at the Navy Mess Hall) and I had 800 calories. I expect this year to do as well. Last year I lost 2# between Halloween and New Year's Day, and I know I will do better this time. I was happy with 2# last year, but I've come so much now that I'm not even excited about "pigging out". emoticon

So glad you are HONEST with yourself and tracking. That is what matters Hon.

Just another day

Monday, November 24, 2008

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.

    Hey, 13 min. is lots better than no minutes, and STARTING is the hardest part, so you "nailed" that. emoticon

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!

  Um...I was gonna say what the last poster did! Of course, flea bombs are an option too, if you can spend the entire day away from the house. For future as well, I have found the drops that go between the shoulder blades to be alot more effective than flea collars. Got more pics of the baby??

    Fleas are a REAL issue. You need to put out SEVEN Dust in your yard, as they will keep coming back in your house. Keep changing your vaccum cleaning bag and getting rid of the other one, as they accumalate in the bag. Breathing the dust from the vaccum can make you sick (like it apparently did.)
