Sick and Tired of being Sick and Tired

Thursday, October 11, 2012

What a very hard two weeks. I went to the doctor last week for pain in my arm. I was told I was having a tendonitis flare up and a major muscle spasm and was put on a steroid pack and muscle relaxers. It all went down hill from there. I ended up with strept throat and have been on my couch now for at least a week. I am up and moving today hoping to feel better. I need to feel better so that I can get more motivated. So I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Aches, Pains, and kids

Thursday, October 04, 2012

It has been a rough week. I have had another tendentious flare up this week and have been in quiet a bit of pain. Doctors have me on steroids which make me want to eat and make me feel horrible. The kids are home for fall break and that is a challenge in and of itself. I find it very hard to stay on track when they are here all day. I haven't done any exercise this week because I have been in so much pain hopefully when the affects of the medication wear off I can get back on track.

    Praying for your quick recovery. I too have bouts of tendinitis in my feet and Achilles' tendon. Just try to keep moving. Upper body, stretching out, anything to keep active. Good luck !

The power of prayer and positive thinking

Monday, September 24, 2012

Did you know it is hard to be negative if you surround yourself with positive things. That is pretty hard in the world we live in today. I was in a slump last week I didn't feel well and all I did was sleep. My children and my husband got on my nerves and I was pretty much useless to everyone around me. I was negative about myself and life in general. On Friday I started praying for God to help me understand why I was in such a place. I attended a concert of one of my favorite Christian artists Friday night and was shown that we take so much in our life for granted. Did I know this? Sure I did but where I have been for the last week I didn't want to see how truly blessed I am. I continued to pray on Saturday and started to feel better. I decided after much prayer and study that I am starting this week on a totally different foot. i am determined to find the good in everything around me. I am working on making my thoughts and attitude positive. I know I will need to rely on prayer to keep this going but I am determined to do this. I know this will help my motivation and promote better weight loss and a healthier mindset all together.

    Oh, golly, golly, me too, why do I get negative? It is so utterly counter-productive. I know I am doing it, and I cannot stop it. I have so much to be grateful for, and I am, yet little things annoy me.

    Amen and Amen! Thanks so much I needed that reminder today! Whenever we take the focus off of God and place it on us, we lose of joy, hope and peace. It really isn't about us. It is about Him and His purposes which are so much higher than ours. I am talking to me as I share with you.

Happy Monday!

Down and Out

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

This week has been another non motivated week. I don't know what is going on but all I want to do is sleep I can't seem to shake this. I am not eating well and I have not done any exercise. It doesn't help that there is something going on every night and that makes it hard to have a decent meal. I have to get out of this funk and get back on track.

    I sure do hope you feel better soon & get out of your funkiness. It can be hard this time of year with the seasons changing. Just remember you can do it, you have a lot of support here too! Be well.

    I feel like that all of the time and I just started this week. I find that the tracking is making me more aware of what I am consuming. And I am trying to drink at least 6 cups of water, but am pushing for 8. I am the first to admit I am lazy and in a funk.. I don't know how to get started with exercising. I have a treadmill.. I have the WII fit.. and I have a 2 year old.. I am going to start with small goals and hope to get to bigger ones.. like starting to exercise. Everyone says how much better they feel afterward.. but getting started and sticking to it is the hardest part. I hope you can find your way out of the rutt you are in.. and move forward to a better place for you. emoticon

Teenagers!!!!

Friday, September 14, 2012

Ugh I have another day of not being motivated and I truly think it is because since we went on our mini vacation I got out of my routine and I am having a difficult time getting back in. Today was gonna be the day but I have a teenager that decided to act out this morning and threw my whole day and plan off track. I know it is an excuse but I hate to have plans just to have them wrecked by my kids. It is as if they are out to get me (although I know they are not). Sorry had to vent this morning.

    We all need to vent every once in a while but take back charge of your life just remember you always need to be flexible.
