Ok so I know it's silly but I'm really aggravated!! I forgot to log in yesterday! I was on the computer and everything!! Well I was only on the computer for a really fast bit to pay bills then off running the van to the garage and taking Littleman to the doctor. Turns out what I was hoping was just a cough was pneumonia. Good thing I took him right away. So yesterday was kind of hectic but still it only takes like a second to log in!! Ever since May when I got sick I haven't been charting like I was. It takes me a while to recover from bronchitis. So I still haven't been exercising like I should plus the kids are out of school so I don't have the window of time that I was using for exercise. I just can't get motivated to get up at 4:30 with my husband every morning to get the treadmill in. Littleman wakes up at 6. Then at night my husband gets home somewhere between 3 and 5 and goes to bed at 8:30 so I like to spend that time with him. I comes down to the fact that I'm most motivated to workout in the afternoon and right now can't find the time. I'm still eating right and losing1 to 2 lbs everyweek but I can't help but wonder what I would be losing if the exercise was added back in. So all of this added up makes me just plain AGGRAVATED!!
So today I jumped on the scale after forgetting to last week and I had a 5 lb drop YEAH!! But I can't help but wonder how much it would be if I could have worked out these past 2 weeks. First family obligations got in the way and as I said in my last blog I've been sick. I don't feel bad just this stupid cough. I tried to a simple band workout just so I could get something in.Well as soon as I got a little hot I started coughing my head off and had to grab my inhaler to stop them. Sooooooo no working out till the darn thing is gone.
Do you know how that is screwing up my goals LOL.
Hope everyone feels better than I do and has a great weekend
Well any of you who are parents know the drill. Your kids get sick you get sick. So there is nothing wrong with me but a cough but when I get a cough I can't sleep laying down and mine last for like a month. I'm sure I'm not the only one that gets coughs like this so you know they stink. That's all for tonight. Night folks
Ok So I kind of went off plan this weekend. Not a big deal just the choices I made. However my body did not like me.
I have been suffering for years from what I thought was IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) but since I have been following the Spark plan and advice I haven't had even one issue.
On Fri. we got Subway and I decided I would have it the way I like it, which is actually pretty healthy a foot long club with provolone cheese and lots of veggies, but I put real mayo. My theory was if I'm gonna eat it it's gonna be the way I like it. The next day my body told me BAD GIRL
Then last night we had steak and I don't mean a small steak either! My DH loves red meat so it was probably a 10oz. Now I know I didn't have to eat it all but I love steak! No veggies or salad just steak!
Well this morning it wasn't good. All these years I thought I had IBS and it was just my body saying
You know what Sparksters it was not worth it!! It might have tasted good but I have had a month of eating right and no problems. 2 times I eat wrong and I paid the price.
So as of today back on plan! Back to eating what my body likes!
I hope this wasn't to TMI for any of you but man what a lesson to learn and what a hard way to learn it!!
Thanks for reading I hope everyone has a great week
UUUHHHHGGGGG!!! So I mentioned my 5 yr old has some special needs. Well yesterday we talked to his Neurologist because none of his seizure meds are really working ( he had 7! 7! in a 3 hour period the other day. Anyway she told us yesterday that she isn't sure we are going to be able to stop them completely because they are being caused by damage to the brain and not just normal (if you can call it normal) seizure conditions. Now he also has attention issues which are worsened (as you can imagine) do to the number of seizures he is having.
He has been on at least 7 different meds for his seizures ( you know it's alot when even the Dr. has lost count ) Well we are weaning him off one and start a new one on Monday. We just hope this one works because our next option is for him to have a surgery called VNS which implants a device, kind of like a pace maker, around a nerve that leads to his brain!! OH!! She did give us another option of having major brain surgery that will separate the 2 halves of the brain!!! I can't even imagine making that decision!!
All I want to do is drown my aggravation in a box of Peanut Butter Cups (I know it won't help) but it sure would taste good!! So far so good today though, because Littleman is one of my main reasons for getting healthier! I have to be able to keep up with him. Right now I have his older brothers to help chase him and man is he fast! But my oldest will be 17 this year and my middle will be 16 so they aren't always going to be here to help with him. I say Littleman is 5 but he is more like a 3 yr old in his behaveor. He has about a 2 yr developmental delay.
Thanks for listening (reading) It helps writing about it. Dealing with everything can really drive me to eat.
