Exhausted

Saturday, March 19, 2011

I feel emotionally and physically exhausted. I'm not sure what's wrong with me. My body is starting to feel better, not as bad as it was, but still very sore in spots, and just very tight. The only way I can describe it, I imagine someone who is alive but has rigamortis in their muscles would feel this way.. lol idk. Emotionally I've felt pretty down both Friday & today. Not sure why. Or what to do about it. So I'm going to go to bed, and get up and get my butt going, hoping that I feel better tomorrow :) I really hope it's another beautiful sunshiney day!

    I hope you have this figured out? Maybe, you need to stretch more? I really don't know!

    Sounds like you may need a more rigorous stretching regimen...?

    YOGA helps with the stiffness.

    I hope you're feeling better in the morning! If not, try to start your happy-juices flowing by doing 10 minutes of exercise. Maybe once you start, it will release those exercise-endorphins and help improve your mood!!

    I hope you feel better. I hope it is something simple like a flu bug. If not, please have it checked by a doctor. Best Wishes.

    If it continues, you should go to the doctors and get checked out. Just to be on the save side. In the mean time, try and feel better.

    Have you ever had your thyroid checked or gotten someone to do some tests to see if there's something going on internally? If you've already discussed this, please forgive!

I hope you feel better soon and that tomorrow is bright and sunny and beautiful!!

I made it through the day!!!!

Thursday, March 17, 2011

I had no desire to go upstairs and eat cookies & ice cream.
I had three small bites of the baby shower cake, and didn't have any desire to eat more (and boy did I get a sugar rush)
I took Becca & Wendle for a walk around the block downtown twice. Then I helped hubby bring the dumpster carts to the end of the road for pick up tomorrow (1/4 mile). I ignored my muscles. lol. Stuff has to get done.
Despite what my body is doing, I had a great day. Today I was the "Saint Patty's Day Princess" with my green tiara on. lol. It made coworkers & the VP smile.

And for the first time, I told people at work I am losing weight, what I am doing, how much I lost, etc. I really wish people would have noticed without me saying anything. What they did notice is I have been eating healthy, and bringing in lots of fruits & veggies. Now the cats outta the bag. We shall see if that was the ice breaker. I cannot wait to get to size 16!!!!

    About what you said on my SparkPage regarding whether to comment on someone's possible weight loss (when you're not sure).

I actually just did that to someone last week. I asked her if she'd lost weight. She just laughed and said, "No; it's probably just because I'm wearing black." But, I told her that she looked good, and, it LOOKED like she'd lost weight. She like that; she said I made her day (even though she hadn't lost anything.)

    I know what you mean -- about people not noticing the weight loss. You've lost 38 lbs! Surely that's obvious.

A few weeks ago, the first person to notice my weight loss was a 6 year old first grader in a classroom that I volunteer in.

However, on Sunday, 3 people (only one of them was someone that I'd told that I was working on losing weight) commented on my weight loss. That was an awesome experience! I wondered if what I was wearing coulda made me look slim. But, I don't think so. It was a knitted brown sweater.

Ya know, though, Kaz. Someone else recently told me that she'd lost 30 lbs. I hadn't noticed that, and, I'd never thought that she'd been particularly overweight. (She's in her late 60's, and, not slim. But, if she's lost 30 lbs, she was likely "obese" on the BMI charts before.)

So, I just tell myself (and you can, too) that the reason people didn't notice is because we didn't look as overweight as we thought we did before. And, the way that we appear now, is the way they remember us.

Not sure if I'll be around today

Thursday, March 17, 2011

I'm not sure if I'll be around today. I'm not feeling well. Multivitamins I took bound me up. So I took some softeners with laxatives, and when that didn't work (after almost 2 days) I took something that I have to use once every few years when this happens - magnesium drink. I also took a shot of Avonex last night. So, I went to bed at 11pm. I tossed & turned. My muscles all ache and feel rigid. Around 2:30ish I woke up and by 3 was using the rest room. I laid back down at 4am only to get cramps everywhere. My legs, my hands & arms, and craziness - my left eyebrow!! Yes, it was cramped and stuck in an upward position. So odd. I finally fell asleep only to have the hubby try to steal a pillow from under me at 5am. I was so comfortable, then that. Well, after tossing & turning a bit more I fell asleep once again only to have my 6am alarm wake me up for work. So I'm hoping to get through a day at work. We have a St. Patty's day luncheon and ice cream and a baby shower.

I'm not sure if I'll have the energy to root around the site today and check out journals and all that. I'm just exhausted and need all my energy for work. I'll be back though. As soon as I get some sleep! lol

WENDLE is HEALTHY - No Tumor!! Yeah!!!

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

The vet called a few minutes ago. The mass they removed wasn't a tumor or cancer. It was some thing that was five words long that I couldn't pronounce nevermind type that meant it was an infection that caused thickening tissues, inflammatory cells, fibrous changes! He will be ok and has a few more years left of a healthy life!!! :)

Back To Normal - Yeah!

Monday, March 14, 2011

I'm feeling almost normal today. Yeah! Chris' car was fixed over the weekend, so no more car-pooling (yeah again!) That means I can go home on time today, get my workout in and start dinner all before Chris gets home! I love my routine. My eye twitch is still here (since yesterday) and this morning I have had some neck spasms, but that's been sorta normal. LOL. I really don't know what's up with these eye twitches. I'm very excited to do my workout today. I haven't worked out in 3 or 4 days, aside from heavy cleaning. I was worried my weight was going to suffer, but it didn't! I still lost weight! Yeah again! I made the most delicious whole wheat chocolate chunk and butterscotch chip cookies yesterday & brought most of them into work to share (so we won't eat them all). lol So far the review is, they are really good. :) yeah. Now If I can just find a butter substitute that works good for baking. Any suggestions? I've tried country crock & Heart Smart and both came out yucky. LOL. So I went back to unsalted butter.

Hope you are having a great Monday!

    Butter substitutes in baking --

Sometimes it works to substitute 1/2 part cooking oil (olive oil or canola oil) to 1/2 part applesauce. You can reduce your sugar, slightly, because of the applesauce.

In other receipes, it doesn't seem to work as well. I 've done so little baking in recent years that I can't really remember where it's worked well, and where it hasn't.

I did read somewhere, though, that, because you're omitting the "creaming" butter and sugar step that many recipes call for, that oils generally work best in recipes that use liquid sugars such as honey, maple syrup, molasses, etc. I also read that if you separate the eggs, beat the yolks with the sugar, and then fold the egg whites into the other ingredients, you won't give up the rich texture that you'd get when using butter.

Might be worth experimenting to see what works.
