Another Day...

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Here we go...still...tremors are still here...Doc up'd my muscle relaxer temporarily, it has helped some! No walking again today. I need to get back to it tomorrow I hope, won't be fast but hopefully I can get it done

Found a "gratitude" strand on the emotional eaters thread...like!

Sick kiddos X 3...all went to school today w/out fevers...all are complaining of tummy trouble tonight! Uuugh!

Please Lord don't "share" it with me too!


Bad spasm day...uugh!

Monday, February 21, 2011

Oh my goodness! My day has been just plain out awful! I have terrible tremor-like spasms that are interfering with everything today!


Calling the Dr in the morning if they don't get better tonight. On a positive note...I listened to my body! Now it just needs to listen to me! LOL

Hanging out again tonight w/out doing exercise.

What now?

Sunday, February 20, 2011

I am frustrated today!

I cannot seem to get the muscle spasms under control in my body. I have them everywhere! Fingers, toes, jaw, neck, legs...you name it! I can hardly walk across the room without writhing in pain. This has been increasing daily for the last several and now I'm sitting here hurting sooo badly.

I have a significant health history to keep in check as I take this journey so...today...I am resting my body. Catching up on homework and reading.

I can do this...I can do this...I can do this!

    I agree with what the others are saying. You know what your body can handle from day to day. Keep up the good work.

    Remember this is a journey to good health not a diet! That means rest stops are necessary. You are doing a good job listening to your body. Just keep eating healthy. I know you can do it. And have a peaceful day. Megan emoticon emoticon emoticon

10K your way!

Friday, February 18, 2011

I began walking about 2 weeks ago and have now joined the 5K your way challenge to do the 10K!!! I know that I can do it! I have already walked nearly 10 miles this week!

I am frustrated because I am staying within my calorie guidelines, exercising and gained a pound! Uugh! It's a journey! Maybe it's all that muscle! LOL

I'm still very proud of myself for the increase in movement rather than the total shut down due to the depression about what I became. I am fighting through the pain and continuing on.

Gonna do my measurements and see what they tell me!

    I had that problem when I first started running too. You can expect a bit of water retention as your muscles train. Don't lose hope. You can do it!
