    You are very brave to blog these pictures. I have been considering doing the same...Indygirl's suggested to take pictures of yourself every month.
Starting this month I am going to do this. Also find pic's of myself over the past few years.
Back surgery can sure be a challenge....have a couple of family who have gone through it....but you know you can do it....I know you can do what?
Get healthy, get strong and the weight will come off.
Be confident!
Be focused!
Be yourself....and your journey will be successful!

32/365 Mixed-Up

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Today was a good day. I actually got about 6 hrs of sleep last night. For me this is amazing. woke up my l arm n hand numb n r shoulder irritated; but most of the pain in my back has eased up.

So I been amazed @ how well my day has been. I guess part of it is that I'm relieved cause I was really worried about whether or not I had re-injured my fusion area.
Today was my off day from the gym so all I did was walk. My eating has been improving and even though I had some delicious beef bacon, I did not go over my calories.

One of the ladies that I met thru the gym came over with her boys (she was dropping off a deep fryer for the superbowl); it was great.

My emotions have been so mixed up and all over the place lately. In one day I go thru such a range of emotions - not getting this as it is not even close to TTOTM. Even today as good as I felt and things were going I had a slight break down. My poor hubby; I am confusing him sooo much. I have been doing some meditation lately and that has not helped me emotionally as I deal with some thing from my past . . .

    I wish I knew what to say or do to help.

But all I can say is good luck on your journey.

    Besides the peri menopausal thing, you are making monumental changes in your life with exercise, diet and a better lookout on things. You are bound to feel mixed emotions about this. That's why being able to blog and share with others who understand (sweet as hubby is, that's different) is so wonderful.

    Keep up the good work, Maga! And I agree with Beejay49, you might be in peri-menopause.

    You are doing a wonderful job! :) I'm wondering if maybe you're heading into peri-menopause? That will really put you on an emotional rollercoaster! Trust me on that one. LOL! Been there, done that! It gets your mind moving and yep, it will put past things in your mind to think about too, so hang in there. You are awesome! HUGS!

31/365 UG

Friday, February 01, 2013

Been kind of a busy day. So just a quick blog before going to bed. I am REALLY tired so prayerfully that mean sleep n since I dont have to get up @ 6 am; even if I m up and down thru the night I can get an extra hr or 2 in the am.

Been doing pretty good with staying on target with my food and exercise. I just really need to focus on SLEEEEEEEEEEEEEP. If I dont get sleep tonight I am gonna have to give in and take a sleeping pill - i jsut hate the way they make me feel in the am.

Well later my friends.

30/365 Sleep

Thursday, January 31, 2013

emoticon This it the hardest thing for me - SLEEP.

I wake up during the night to go to the bathroom - - - so I try not to drink too much after 7 emoticon

I wake up in pain - - - so I been sleeping on the couch (it helps to elevate my legs & back)

I wake up w arm numb - - - I try to use the pillows to hold my neck right

Some nights like last night are really bad. I slept on the couch; on the floor; on the bed; on the love seat and then back onto the floor.

Prayerfully the paperwork is correct and my insurance is being process dont understand why 45 days but @ least the process is started. Then once its all started I can work on getting my follow up test done and see what can be done for the continual pain where I had the spinal fusion and for the nerve issues in my neck.

Well night all and may sleep and I get along tonight emoticon

    Maga, nights suck! That's even what my doc says to me. I try to tell him I have a TV for distraction but he insists that at night it is much harder to keep your mind off the pain. It sounds like you are more like me, thinking a change in the surface will help but with not much luck.

I can't recall, do you still have pain medication or are you just suffering along until the insurance is finally worked out?

emoticon when ever you think you can, since nights give no guarantee.
