Helping Others & Feeling Yucky

Tuesday, February 03, 2009

Here's the thing..........I'm supposed to leave Friday after work to join my DH in Missouri to help out some of the ice storm victims. I'm glad because I haven't really been able to do any Disaster Relief work recently and so I'm anxious to get back to it. BUT, something is up with my body.......don't know what it is. Having all kinds of strange symptoms that are so unlike me including chest pain/pressure, fatigue, body aches, etc. etc. etc. I'm not sick yet I haven't felt like myself for the last week. I don't have any history of heart probs or any of the things that go along with it, but since the rest of my family does, I decided to go to the doctor yesterday afternoon. They checked EVERYTHING including doing an EKG, all types of blood tests, exams and they found...............Nothing. Huh? Now, I don't wanna be sick, but you know when something is not right. And it hasn't been. I feel a little better today other than the fatigue so I'm not gonna be really concerned unless I just don't start feeling better at all. So anyway, ya'll just pray for me that I feel better and am able to do my part this weekend in Missouri to show them God's love through my service. It is after all the "Show Me State". emoticon

What's Wrong With Me?

Thursday, January 29, 2009

I can't seem to get motivated........... In the morning I'm all gung-ho, let's go & by the evening I seem to fizzle out of enthusiasm. I've done some bingeing which I thought was behind me (literally, it is.......on my behind). Also, I'm paying for a gym membership that I seem to be ignoring. I have good intentions, just no follow thru. There's no one to blame except me. It's almost that TOM, but it seems I should have a LITTLE willpower. I used to be the motivator, now I'm the instigator. What's a girl to do when she knows what to do, but just can't seem to kick herself in the butt?

    Hi Jana, When I read "What's wrong with me?," my heart went out to you. I am 57 years old and have cried that for so long. I know all the rules, lists, dots and dashes, but still I have the one thing missing to get results. Oh, I can for a while. It's really stupid. I crash and burn when things are at their best. Feeling great, active in exercise, measuring food, and losing weight. And SPLAT. I'm down on my face in the cream pie. Worst thing is I'm killing myself one pound at a time. You go Girl. Please don't make the same mistake.

    Hey! Thanks for the comment on my page.. I'm so glad that you found me...and the poem..too! Welcome back to the journey... you may have stumbled but the important thing is that you're going to KEEP GOING! There have been times when I will.. literally.. have tears running down my face while I am on the elliptical because I am so sick and tired and fed up of everything and I DO NOT want to be at the gym. But I still go, and I'm ALWAYS glad I did. It takes a while to form a habit, but after all the pushing, you'll be glad YOU did!

You can do it!!!!!! emoticon

    you just have to go through the motions...a 'fake it till you make it' type attitude. It takes at least a month to build a good habit..of eating right..exercising...negative self-talk is defeating...try telling yourself that you care about YOU and that is why you're going to go to the gym!

Something You Can Never Get Back

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

A five year old boy from my church passed away yesterday after enduring not one but two liver transplants (and all the problems that go with that) in his short time. His parents are sad, but were still praising God for the blessings they received from being his parents. Don't just go thru the motions of life..........soak it up.

    That is so true Jana... We never know how long we will be here and how long those we love will be around. We must take a stand and live the best day to day.

    I'm sorry to hear about this little boy. My uncle passed away early this morning which wasn't 'quite' unexpected but sad nonetheless. We can pray for each other.

So Far So Good

Thursday, January 08, 2009

It's day 4 into my turnaround. So far so good. Or well.......pretty good. No exercise on the horizon thus far. Next week should be better so I'll be able to ease back into my routine. DH will be on a mission trip for about a week so I'll have a little more free time emoticon I'll miss him, but sometimes a little time apart helps you remember why you like 'em in the first place. It's easier to eat without him here as my son will eat "whatever". He is trying to quit smoking so I'm hoping that by being around a bunch of non-smokers will help him out. (A few still do, but most do not) Nearly everyone who works for him smokes so a week away from that is a good thing. I'm a lot more conscious of what I'm eating again so that is helpful in the battle. Here's to a skinny day!
