December A Fresh Start

Saturday, December 01, 2012

I did't get the FitBit Yesterday but it still might come today,I hope. (our mail comes in the afternoon)
I'm not going to use that as an excuse to stop me from being healthy and loosing those few pounds i want to lose.
I started with a healthy 12 ounce glass of water as soon as I got up, had a black coffee, and I made Steel Cut Oats with half a banana, a tablespoon of flax seed and a tablespoon of peanut butter mixed in.(SO GOOD)
We then had a small glass of left over smoothie. Done now til lunch.
Now to just make sure I move and exercise.
Have a Great Day everyone. emoticon

    In answer to Spatten2001, I didn't get the Fit bit yet (now I hope it comes Monday)
and I usually but whole flaxseed and grindit in the bullet and keepit in the freezer and use it from there. I have bought and used it already ground when I found it on sale.

    I hope you received your FitBit -- I absolutely love mine! My real problem with exercise is that I don't like it! However, I will say that I am more conscious of walking daily since I started with the FitBit in October. Curious -- is your flax seed whole or ground?

I ordered my FitBit

Thursday, November 29, 2012

My Fitbit is on the way. I can't wait to get it. I need to get motivated again. I am in a lazy slump and my eating is awful. I am a vegetarian but I have been a junk food junkie.
Sooo, December 1st I am going to eat like a sane person and exercise like I mean it.
I am hoping the Fitbit comes in by then (fingers are crossed) but if not I will start without it.
I have got to get back on track. I am 3 pounds up and i want to be 7 pounds down by Dec. 31st.
I have my work cut out for me. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Yay!!! I weigh in at my doctor's on 12/11 and if I'm down 10 lbs, I get my Fitbit. I'm so excited!!! It is sitting on my bookshelf staring at me, but I really want it as a reward. Every time I look at it, I tell myself - Keep you eye on the prize! I hope you have a wonderful December and enjoy your FB!

Happy Day to All

Thursday, November 22, 2012

I just want to wish every one a Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate today and a Happy Day to those who don't.
Today is also our 39th anniversary. I am happy that it is. So many don't make a few months let alone years.
We have had our fights and problems but we have stuck together through thick and thin and I couldn't have had a better husband through it all. He's still as wonderful as the day I met him and decide he's the one.
I still Love him and I know he loves me. That is a plus in any relationship.
I love you all,too.
Have a Happy Day! :)

Stroke update

Thursday, August 16, 2012

I don't know why I took so long to update. It's been 1 year and 5 months since his stroke. He is doing good. He had to learn to walk and can do really well until he gets tired and then he gets a bit wobbly.
His eyes are pretty good except the left side, his eye is numb and he still is vertically challenged.
The left side of his head and face is still numb (in a wierd way) that if it rains or snows hard it stings.
His whole right side is also numb and it stings in a different way. He said his arm is constantly freezing but it is strong. He never lost strength. plus he can't tell if something is hot or cold with his right side.
I am hoping to find a holistic doctor and get him off different pills.
He is now a vegetarian like me (after watching Forks Over Knives) and he is always trying to do something and keep busy.
We were told he was very lucky and if he wasn't in such good shape he might have died.
Oh yes, he had a rotator cuff repaired this last March (it was a complete tear) and after that healed for awhile a tree fell on his same shoulder. (Causing a seperated shoulder) Now that has to heal.
BUT he is doing good and if you saw him you wouldn't know all this has happened.
Now we are both trying to eat healthier and exercise.
I am know he will keep improving.
Thank you all for your prayers, I know that helped a whole bunch. emoticon

    Great News! So glad that he is doing so well, but sorry that he has had to endure further pain with the tree falling on his shoulder after the rotator cuff repair, which is a very painful surgery in itself! Prayers and hugs continue your way from me! emoticon emoticon emoticon
