MOM IS COMING HOME WOOHOO!!! That is all i can say!! I'm excited!! Also last week i started the ball rolling on the 14 week workshop investigating if my insurance could be used it can so i'm so happy!!! Since i'm doing that i got the one day workshop to get me ready at a discount from 110.00 to 70.00 woohoo!!! I am excited and proud of myself for not giving up and researching it!! It was funny because my Therapist sent me an email telling me they might have some reduced workshop spaced on the one day one when i told her i was in she was excited i had already researched and done! Now all that i have left this week to feel complete is to start my exercise program back and stay consistent. I will do it!!!

Gabby thank you for getting me started on this challenge!!!!

Mom better today hopeful for homecoming!

Jan 20, 2013
Today well got a call to hurry and come in at 10 because mom took a turn her blood sugars had been at the lowest 70 than highest over 500 blood pressure out of the park she was shaking and no feeling in arm and leg. Urgent response team requested. I got there she was breathing heavy and scared. Ran a bunch of test to rule out heart attack and stroke. Also checking for clots by the time i left the hospital at 6:30 her blood sugar was normal at 144 and BP was back to normal she finally had a bowel movement (TMI) and she had eaten well most of the day. They couldn't do the whole test for the clot so will try again tomorrow so blood thinner for today. Just want her to be well enought to come home. I know she is in the best place possible but it is hard to go through this at times. I don't do stress well.

Will try to count my blessings and hope and pray for things to get better!!!

Friday - had a great time @ bunco with my TOPS friends!!! emoticon

Saturday - had to work from 8-1 and than was wanting to go to the bank and it didn't work out very well the branch i thought was open til 2 wasn't.. emoticon then it hit me hard i thought i was just tired nope sinus infection i had felt the headache earlier but than the congestion hit and was tired!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Sunday - another sick day rested emoticon emoticon emoticon

Today - still not 100% about 70% sinus infection is kicking tail. Went to BED Therapy and had a great session!! I am hoping to get into a 12 week workshop on intuitive eating getting out of the diet mentality since i have an eating disorder if insurance covers i am golden if not FSA acct should be able to be used since my therapist will refer me as part of my therapy.

i am needing to make some changes that doesn't make the disorder function in warp speed obsessing and counting and measuring is not where i need to be so I have some decisions to make about leading my team. I don't feel i can lead if i am not participating and losing weight i feel like i am not doing my job. I have already been toying with it but i always get pulled in but i really need to work on me. I am will weigh in at TOPS but won't know my weight my good friends Krista will be keeping my weight record log. I have come a long way and my mind will be focusing on just eating healthy or as best as i can and fitness!! no numbers just journaling how i feel daily... so will still keep my challenge and updates but just not measuring success at the scale or numbers at the end of the days minutes or calories or measurements... I am just going to take it one meal at time and make healthy choices for myself and see how it goes. I have basically maintain my weight for two years i'm good with that as i'm fixing my disorder for the past 18 mos.

My closet has many skeltons and they are being worked on - basically i'm putting myself back together in a sense reprogramming and undoing the damage. Any hoodle hoping to feel better sinus wise and well hoping Mom's bacl surgery tomorrow goes well 82 years old almost 83 keep her in your prayers.. I'm scared for her you know she is up there and well i do worry! Anxious about it!! okay practicing my letting go to things i have no control i will pray all goes well and leave it in his hands!

Will update tomorrow pm how things go!

    As Nell said "We're behind you 100% in whatever decision you make that's best for you, but know that you've been a good leader and I for one would hate to see you go anywhere!"

Hope you are feeling better and that sinus infection is gone!

    Gosh, hate to hear you even thinking about not being our fearless leader! A leader can fall down and struggle just like the rest of us...it means you're human! It's been a tough week for me as well. Off on my food and for fighting the scale, but it helps me to know others on the team are in the same boat.

We're behind you 100% in whatever decision you make that's best for you, but know that you've been a good leader and I for one would hate to see you go anywhere!

No Binging emoticon still streaking!
Okay Monday started out as a scary night for me I was putting away Christmas stuff in my storage closet at my apt. the door shut behind me at one point I was locked in no knob on the inside and the door was sticking and swollen so I tried kick but was in a panicked state anyone who has followed my blog knows that this is not a good thing that happened. (for those of you new to it I used to be locked up in a crawlspace for days by my dad w/o food and it led to my binge eating disorder-which Iím in therapy for) okay I found my camp lantern and got light and pulled myself got my barings against the boxes and camping gear and kicked as hard as I could broke the door but got my butt out quick. My biggest fear was my husband was sick and asleep as was my mom (FLU)Ö from now on cell phone will come with me. Anyway had a rough night but slept hard. I actually wrote about it in my journal on how I felt. It was a good thing overall. I got my exercise in by running up and down 3 flights of stairs with the Christmas Tubs like 5 times.

Tuesday got up and walked/jogged and decided not to count calories just to eat healthy and that I would measure for portion control to get used to a healthy portion vs. mega portions. I felt good never deprived. Eating a lot more veggies and actually enjoying it. Went to bed early by 9pm

Wednesday another good day and even had a burger was able to make it taste like those nice ones at Red Robin. I made my own Bonsai Turkey Burger. I have been prepping mom for her surgery on the 15th of January.

Thursday this was a little bit more of crazier night lots of running around so I was a little more stressed. Work has been really crazy busy!! I find myself distracted lately, so curbing it and owning it when I see it happening. Talked to my oldest sister regarding momís up and coming surgery all is good and we are on the same page for her care.

Today is going well and will report in later, I play Bunco tonight and today woke up late so had no time to plan meals but so far Iím weathering it out. Dinner will be subway!

    I don't know what the arrangement, but I do know that hardware stores sell locksets for closets. They have a knob on both sides, and no lock. Bathroom and bedroom locksets have a lock on the inside and a small hole for the emergency key so you can rescue a chile who locks themself in by accident, or an adult who had a storke and can't reach the knob. I put closet locksets on the closet doors because they had bedroom locksets, so a kid could lock themselves in and not know how to get out. Now they're safer.

    Must of felt amazing to have the control in the situation. You didn't panic. You came up with a plan. and you didn't allow it to break you.
congrats

    Oh dear Emm - what a spot! But it HAS to make you feel somewhat empowered to have gotten yourself out of that spot emoticon

Hope your mom's surgery goes as planned, it's always tough to have these medical issues come up, and how great that you have a sister who can work with you on making sure everything is covered.

So, take a deep breath...but DON'T hold it! emoticon ...blow it out and pat yourself on the back for tackling an issue head on!

Have a great weekend emoticon
