New Year Same Determination

Monday, December 31, 2012

Okay, it's only been two days, I better have the same determination!!!!


Keep going

Saturday, December 29, 2012

On Tuesday, April 06, 2010 I made a blog entry that asked how many times to begin again. Let me tell you, I will try till I die. I have spent the last two years being diagnosed and learning to live with menieres disease. It is an inner ear dysfunction that causes vertigo, memory loss, and a few other fun side effects. I have kept going and also kept gaining weight. So here I am before you, ready again. I read through my old entries and found strength. This is my journey and today I picked it up and began walking down this road again.

    Yes my ears ring. Sometimes is very light, other times so loud I can't think.
Do you have other symptoms. Ringing ears can be the product of listening to music to loud
initially I thought that was my issue. :)

    Do your ears ring? Mine have been ringing off and on, mostly on, for almost 4 years. I'm so glad you keep trying and will continue to try. Good for you, that's awesome. Hope you have a Happy New Year. Make one good choice at a time. You can do it!!

Is a bad diet day ever "worth it"?

Friday, April 16, 2010

Strange question brought about by a bad diet day. Went out for burgers last night, while I could have chose chicken and salad I picked the cheeseburger. It was good, and I ate about 2/3's of it. It was not so good that I was euphoric, it was not take me to a new realm good. So why did I do it, not sure. But I do know afterwards I felt bloated, sick and just plain icky. Which is how I used to always feel after eating, and I realized last night that I have not felt that way since I decided to begin again. Interesting, maybe this bad diet day was worth it, it helped me realize that I DO feel better when I eat right.

    I don't know, for me a really good hamburger once every few months is very worth it!!! I have given up beef except for once a month, and usually that is in the form of a lean steak, and very small at that. I dream of big juicy burgers slathered in mayo and ketchup with onions, pickles, tomatoes, and lettuce....aaaaahhhhhh....of course, that is why I had 110 lbs to lose at the start of my journey.

Glad you realized how much better you feel eating healthy. It really does make such a huge impact on our lives. I know my energy levels are through the roof compared to a year ago.

Keep up the good work!!

    Sounds to me that it WAS worth it after all if only for helping you recognize your own reactions and responses. Now you know what your personal right track is!

Scrapbook convention weekend

Sunday, April 11, 2010

This was a weekend I had planned for so long with one of my girlfriends.
We went to the convention, shopped and cropped. I was a bit nervous about what I was going to eat, if I was going to make good decisions. We really did not eat the day of the convention except for dinner, shopping makes me forget to eat. emoticon I had a margarita and mexican, so okay-I admit, showed no restraint. I did have a great time, and despite my bad decisions; feel great about the day, it was fun and I walked forever.
Today I am home and working on an album for another friend of her Disney vaca. I need to get it done yesterday. Off to hide in my scrapbook room!


Dr. Appt. today

Thursday, April 08, 2010

Had my first appt. with my neurologist today. He has a bit of a strange personality, if this is going to be ongoing I will be finding a new Dr. Hopefully they will find out what is going on with me, why I have dizzy spells etc. and I will not need to go back. MRI is scheduled and blood work was done today.

As far as staying on plan, no real issues today. Go me!

    Oh no :( Sounds scary. I hope your Dr can find a reason for the dizzy spells as well as a quick and painless way to end them! Good luck!
