Will This Work??!!??

Monday, January 17, 2011

This is my fifth time trying to create a blog on here in 2 weeks. I have written about everything only to receive an error when trying to post the blog entry. But i will try again with today's update.

I have successfully for one week eaten properly, close to or in my lower end of my calorie range, hitting most of the carb, protien, fat, sodium, etc. In fact, my sodium is Spot On!
I have not drank lemonade or soda in 2 weeks
I have been drinking lots and lots of water
I have been feeling content with food!
Began a cardio routine on Sunday

Next Steps:
Create a better lunch program for me so I can limit myself to one nutritional shake a day
Continue on the successes I have already begun
Learn more about the difference between Whole Grain and Whole Wheat and figure out which one is better for my lifestyle
Get in cardio exercise at least every other day
Not worry about my weight for a few more weeks while I am adjusting to my lifestyle changes

I have to slow down and remind myself it's only been 2 weeks since we started this! It feels like longer! Remind myself I am IN CONTROL of what goes in my mouth. I feed my dog $60/bag dog food along with some additional healthy foods (carrots, apples, etc). I wouldn't feed my dog junk food, and I wouldn't feed him fat and greese! I need to be as concerned about what goes in my mouth as I am my dogs!!! I even switched my cat to wellness cat food to give her the best food for her. And I need to impress upon my daughter, while there is still time to, how to live and eat healthy, and how good it feels!!!!

I want to live, not survive.
I want to enjoy life, not just get by.
I want to Smile, not frown from feeling weighed down.
I want to Be the best person I can be from inside out!
The words "never" "can't" "won't" "but" will be removed from my everyday conversations
And replaced with, "I AM" "I CAN" "I WILL" "AND"

Rough Week & Raccoon with Distemper

Thursday, November 04, 2010

I've been busy. Working full time, Making posters for work in the evening and hanging with Becca & Chris. We've run a lot of errands and I'm exhausted. Now I have to make more posters in the next coming week. We are having a company wide potluck, clothing drive, food drive, bake sale, christmas angles, adopt a family and childrens xmas party all by Dec 11th. I get to make posters for all of them, and help organize the bake sale and xmas party. So I'm a bit tired. Becca's been giving attitude then a few hours later asking me why I'm avoiding or ignoring her. Well, I told her to only say nice things or don't talk. I told her she's been giving an awful lot of dirty looks and body language to us when we try to engage her. I was just pulling away to give her the space she acted like she wanted. Teenagers, I swear! It seems everyone I know has a loved one who is in the hospital, or was just discharged. SO scary! Yesterday we had a scary experience also. There was a half dead raccoon in our back yard. Just lying there on his belly, every now and then moving his front paws trying to move and rub his face. Well, Chris brought wendle out without a leash who immediately ran to smell this thing up close. So, after we got wendle in the house and settled, I brought out two towels and a cat carrier. I put one towel on the bottom of the carrier, and put another one around the raccoon. I picked him up and placed him in the carrier, using the towel. He made a lil noise, moved a bit, but that's about it. I called around to every D&R, Nature Center and Animal Control. No one would help. They all said that there was nothing they could do and two of them suggested to shoot and bury it. Well, we don't own a gun. We watched the raccoon for an hour while trying to figure out what to do. He was definitely starting to suffer, he was able to turn around in the carrier, and was attempting to lift his head up to look out and possibly try to get out, but just didn't have any energy. I then noticed that he soiled himself and or was drooling. So Chris took him in the woods, put him out of his misery. So then we had to go out to dinner cuz Chris was so shook up. I am concerned how this will affect chris, since he's so sensitive to animals. He really just wanted to let it loose to die on it's own. But I think it had Distemper from the way it was acting the past two days until today (it was out in the day time, walking the main road, acting drunk, etc). We really don't have rabies anywhere near us, but distemper is rampant. Anyway.. I just am running on low. sooo.. here i go back to work..

    You really are busy, poor raccoon I hate to see animals suffer. You should take some time out for yourself and take some deep breaths and relax. Make the time for you, everyone needs that. I use my exercise time for me time and everyone knows they cant bother me when I am exercising, long walks in the park really help. I know what you mean about teenagers you have to have alot of patience and understanding with them. I hope things get better for you. emoticon

Today is a better day

Thursday, October 28, 2010

I'm feeling much better cognitively today. I still didn't get any sleep, but I woke up within a minute of the alarm clock, took a half of a five hour energy, and began my day. I bought myself fruit and salad for breakfast/lunch today. I bought fruit and pastries for my coworkers. I tend to buy pastries I don't like much so I won't eat them. But they love them. lol. And they are all at healthy weights too and appreciate the food. Anyway, yesterday I made a few mistakes. First I didn't count out my chips and put the bag away. I kept the bag there, so I ended up counting out a second helping and eating them too. I was under stress from a meeting I was on the phone listening to and kept munching away. Then after counseling it was too late to cook dinner, and my daughter wasn't feeling well, so we bought McDonalds. I am not sure what was wrong with me yesterday, but even at McD's I got home not knowing what I actually ordered. I went there with all intentions of ordering a grilled chicken ceasar salad, but when I opened the bag, there was a fish fillet meal. So friggin strange. I hope I don't have many more days like yesterday. It was so unproductive, and so just frustrating!!!! Thank goodness Today is a Better day! I'm goin to go fill up my water bottle and find some work to do!

I'm lost - Cognitive in the Toilet

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

I'm so lost. I dont know what day i'm on, i dont know what i'm doing. i got in my car this morning and i couldn't remember how to work the lights, blinkers, wipers. i got them all confused. fortunately my daugther didn't even notice. i got to work, and i couldnt remember what i was doing. took me 20 minutes to figure out how to start my day. i got a call from a coworker and couldnt answer her questions cuz i couldnt remember. i had to tell her for the first time i dont know - an di had to say it twice!!! i'm trying to figure out what to do next at work, and i'm completely lost! idk i guess i should blame this on my ms. maybe it's acting up cuz of the weather here in michigan. something about a cyclone and up to 60mph winds today. maybe my head is feeling that pressure and reacting. i just cant handle this. i wanna cry and maybe sleep. idk. i am so lost and feel lonely and scared from this.

    I am sooo sorry your having challenges. The neuro put me on cerefolin nac to help with the cog fog. It is an concentrate of vitamins that is supposed to help prevent brain atrophy. It helps a bit.

Mine has gotten so bad I don't think I could ever work. I noticed when I flare or get tired and stressed it gets worse.

I sure hope it passes for you.

I blew it yesterday! But not as bad as before..soo..

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Yeah, yesterday I blew it. We ordered dinner in, and I stuffed my face! I did make myself start with a glass of water and salad, but then turned to the mini taco, and the boneless buffalo wing, and the pepperoni roll, and then of course cuz the buffalo wings were hot a large glass of milk. So I know I went over on my points a bit. I did get to thinking about it though, I would have normally ate more than I did last night, I would have eaten a full piece of pizza on top of this, twice as much ranch, and the list goes on. So I'm going to look at this as a lesson. I'm doing better. Not quite there yet, but I'm getting there. Today is a new day, and I don't have to let that happen again. Tonight I am going to check on my treadmill in the basement and verify that it is working (kids were playing on it) and if it is, I'm going to lug it upstairs. I'm going to set my alarm clock for 5:30 and give myself a half hour to get on the treadmill, do 20 minutes and then head to a shower. It's the only part of the day I can see myself having a spot to fit daily exercise in. I have to make myself do this.

On a happier note, my double chin shrunk a little. I'm sooo Happy for that!!! I really really got depressed 2 weeks ago when I saw how huge my double chin had gotten. Now it's smaller, so it's working. :)

    Try not to think of it as 'blowing it', it was one meal and you tracked what you ate so I wouldn't call that blowing it. Yes, you ate more than you should have but you admit that it could have and has been worse. We had a potluck at work yesterday and I had to try everything, I tracked it, went over my calories, but still did my workout and planned a healthier day today. This is a lifestyle so you will occasionally eat more than you should, track it and move on. Congratualtions on the shrinking body parts!! emoticon
