Still Truck'n

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Ok, so here I am once again. This site has changed so much--but definitely for the good! I have been surfing through the pages and it is wonderful. Since my last post in 2013 I have really been struggling to improve. The issues with my vertigo are still present (although better). I am so glad to say that my migraines have improved!! My doctor lowered my estrogen back in April and I have gone seven weeks without a headache!!! I also have improvements with my back issues. So, with all that said, it is time for me to get busy with the weight. I really don't have a lot to lose, but what I do have seems so hard to get off. My scales are up and down--up and down.

I hope those friends I made while here are still a part of the site. Please message me if you are. I need support and I need to be supportive.

I have made my goal for weight loss December 25, 2014.

Ready...set...GO!! emoticon

Back Again...

Thursday, September 19, 2013

It has been some time since I have been here. I had a complete hysterectomy in June 2012 and it seems it has been down hill from there. I had a major vertigo attack in August (never having had one) and it lasted for a whole week. Plus here it is September 2013 and I am still having issues. I have just completed vestibular rehab and must continue exercising on my own. Back issue--so I am going to a chiropractor three times a week. I have regretted the hysterectomy and wish I could go back in time. I have had weakness, extreme fatigue...you name it, I think I have had it. Now with all that said, I can say today I am beginning to see some improvement. I am trying to be more aggressive with my balance rehab and throwing in some routine exercising that I can do. Where I have been so fatigued it has made it impossible to exercise so I am sooooo out a shape. I realize that I have to help myself. I have gone off all artificial sweetner and mostly drink water. I have switched to almond milk and rarely eat bread. I am really trying to get my body back into shape (not necessarily shape, but back to where I feel human). It has been very difficult because to look at me some days, you can't tell anything is wrong.

Anyway...enough whining. My goal is to see a BIG improvement by December. I really have missed being on this site. Hope all of you will help me through.

Love to you!!!

PS: I must add that I have seen six different doctors this year. Had MRI's, Cat Scan, Ultrasounds, Thyroid biopsy, Upper GI...praise God all was well.

    Hello! Welcome Back!

I just went on to our class team to huddle because I just came back yesterday and figured I should check in with my teams and I noticed the title of your blog. It made me feel more connected somehow that one of my other classmates was back too.

I am so glad that you have gone off artificial sweeteners!!! That is awesome because they are so dangerous. Almond milk is good too. I like it much better than cow milk or any of the others.

Peace and prayers for your rapid recovery!!

Updates. . .

Thursday, February 02, 2012

Well, the Zumba class did not go so well. Not that I didn't love it. I really did. But, I guess I tried to hard and threw my back out again and had to stop. :( With that said, I am very happy that as of yesterday I was able to get a gym membership again. (I haven't been in two years). Went last night and was somewhat surprised that I could hang on the eliptical for 30 minutes. It was not at blazing speed...but it was still motion. I am very pleased.

I have set my goal (this time) to drop five pounds. I figure if I make the increments small I will be able to achieve it.

Let's see....on to the weather...I love the temps. I am not a winter person; however, it does concern me that come spring/summer we may have mosquitoes as big as bats!

Starting book group back tonight with some fantastic ladies. Looking forward to that. We always have such a great time.

'Till next time....

    Sounds like you're doing great! I simply can't get the knack for the elitpical! I'm sure there's something I'm not doing right but it doesn't look complicated when other people do it.

See you later, loser!
(I mean that in a good way!)

    Wow...30 mins on the eliptical emoticon I've tried those before but I couldn't get the hang of it. I'm one of those people with two left feet... emoticon See you later and hope your back gets better fast!

Second class down... & other stuff...

Wednesday, November 02, 2011

Had my second Zumba class last night. I must admit that today I am feeling the pain. I think we did a little more last night and I do believe every muscle in my body is aching. BUT, that's ok! It was a lot of fun and the ache is not injury. I really can not imagine being able to move my hips like our instructor does. It is CRAZY how fast she can do that.

I do want to mention how I can not believe it is November. I just don't know where the year has gone. Before you know it 2012 will be upon us. Wish I could slow time down. It seems to be flying by.

My daughter will be having a baby girl soon (in the next week). She has two boys. We are all very excited. I'm going to see her this month (she is in Louisana) for about 10 days (over Thanksgiving...guess who's cooking?). I am very excited, just hate flying and especially hate flying by myself.

Hope you all have a fantastic day and days ahead. 'Till next time...
