I punched myself in the eye!!

Monday, February 21, 2011

I'm not quite sure how. After snow shoveling and walking a half mile, I laid down on my bed to relax for a minute. I rolled over and somehow my left thumb ended up in the outside corner of the right eye! Yeouch! I also have an eye twitch in my left eye (you can't see it but I can feel it). I'm gonna go to bed early!

    LOL! I have SO done that. You have my deepest sympathy. My DH somehow managed to bruise his forehead, dead center, apparently with the end of his pen, so now he has two perfect little circles that join to make a figure eight right above his nose. He doesn't even remember doing it. If yours isn't that visible then you are WAY ahead of him!

My life is becoming a boring routine! lol. I dislike routines. My daughter needs routine to thrive, but I am opposite. I like chaos. LOL. If my house would just stay clean, I would be happier. It seems that no matter how much I clean, it's still messy everywhere! I'm going to try to switch up my biggest loser dvd tonight. Just for something new. After 2 weeks I'm supposed to start the next set, but I know that my body isn't ready for it yet. So I will try out the 28 day bootcamp now. Hubby did the workout with me saturday, and I think he now sees why it's so difficult for me! ha ha!

Well, there are 10 inches of snow out there this morning. A car actually caught fire on the side of the road - amazing video footage. Roads are crazy bad, so I'm working from home. I helped shovel half the driveway, and can tell that I'm still under weather - my stamina was much less than usual. I listened to myself and didn't over-do it or injure myself. It's just driving me nuts. My brain wants to do so much more, and my body is saying no! rawr!

    Sorry to hear that you might be having trouble with the flu-like side effects of Avonex. All 3 of the interferons (A,B,R) can have those. I was lucky that, when I was on Betaseron, I didn't ever experience them.

On Copaxone now.

I think I'm getting sick, or is it Avonex?

Saturday, February 19, 2011

My body was achy yesterday, and I kept getting foot cramps, and overall yuchy feeling. My nose is getting stuffy, and I'm head-achy. I have already had two sinus infections in the last 4 months. UGH. How do I get rid of this! It also can be my new ms medicine that gives flu symptoms, so I'm not sure how to determine which it is? I guess I'm going to take some zicam, rest up, continue eating healthy and exercising.

    I HATED the flu like side effects from Avonex! It was slightly more bearable if I started taking Advil 24 hours before my shot and continued for at least 24 hours after and I usually still was a bit achy and had a runny nose for a day or two. Most other people I know got over these side effects after a while, so try to give it some time. Definitely rest and take good care of yourself, especially if it is a sickness and not a side effect. Best of luck to you!

    Could very well be a combination of the two - the Avonex AND the cold/flu. I normally dose myself up on Tylenol or anything else the relieves aches and pains before and after my shot. Will probably find in time I'll have an ulcer from all the aspirin or something. In any event, I sure hope you feel better real soon. Take care. emoticon emoticon

  Oh I hate feeling like that! Especially when you are not sure if it's a side effect from a medication. :-s You're on the right track though -- be good to your body, eat well, take it easy and kill that bug with kindness!

Take care & get well.

Let the sunshine in!

Friday, February 18, 2011

The sun is shinning so brightly out! It's a gorgeous winter day. The snow is melting. I'm hoping the pounds are too. I met up with my husband and a friend for breakfast. I tried to eat healthier - egg white omelet with onions & peppers, whole wheat toast, water. We are supposed to go out to dinner tonight too. I had to work from home today, but I still had to drive to A2 in order to meet them for breakfast, so I took his car and dropped him off at work.

So I've maintained the same weight for almost 2 weeks now, but I am shedding inches. I'm going to weigh myself tomorrow morning to see if the pounds have caught up. I'm glad it's Friday. I can't remember what I am supposed to do this weekend, but I know I'm supposed to do something!

    Sort of in the same boat here, Kaz.

-- Nice sunny day in Kansas. Although not as nice as yesterday (78F). Snow from last week (17") is melted. And, the -17F temperature from last week is just a bad memory.
-- Maintaining weight, but, losing inches (just a bit).
-- Glad it's Friday!

Enjoy your weekend! :-)

I FEEL on FIRE!!! Top of the Mornin To ya!

Thursday, February 17, 2011

I don't know how else to explain the way I feel. At this very moment I feel like I am on top of the world. I feel good, healthier, proud of myself for sticking with it. The Biggest Loser Last Change Workout is still hard to keep up with, but I am keeping up with it. I'm DOING it. not trying, I'm DOING. Even after my avonex shot last night, I feel GOOD today - not sick or flu-like, which is Amazing for me. I can't even explain how much it means to me that my husband is doing this journey with me hand in hand. My best friend, working on the same goals, same lifestyle changes, different challenges. Exercise comes very easy to him, and very hard to me. Getting in his calories is very hard for him, and much easier for me. LOL. I realized yesterday that my veggie chips really aren't a good idea. I thought I'd buy them and keep them on hand for when I needed that crunch and celery wasn't cutting it. It's just not worth it. Even though they are low sodium, I taste the salt, and it makes me crave more salty and sweet things. Very not worth it. Today I brought to work my veggie beef soup, apple, orange, banana. For the "sweet" snack if I get tempted by coworkers for something worse - is a fat free pudding cup. That's the fall back to, if they wave cake in my face, or something. HA. And I'm sitting here drinking my water bottle. I think this week I'm going to wean myself off of the morning generic slim-fast shakes. I am beginning to taste the sugar in them more and more. So I'm going to plan to eat whole wheat toast or english muffins, peanut butter, and maybe some melons, or fruits for breakfast. That will be the last processed food that I consume on a regular basis! I think I'm ready!
