How quickly diet and exercise plans fall apart

Monday, August 11, 2014

I don't know what is going on with me. All I want to do is eat and be lazy. I have been sleeping horribly. in general about 5 hours a night and that's with my night meds. NOTHING is working. I'm so tired all i want to do is eat and nothing else. I have gained so much weight in a short period of time. i have to get back on track but i'm having trouble with the the "all-or-nothiong" mentality. Today i woke up at 4 am. I was too hot too sleep.

The only good news today is i saw my neurologist and I'm getting Botox Sept 4th! then maybe i'll be able to get back on track with exercisesince i won't be hiding in the dark.

PLEASE help motivate me! I need encouragement! and a smack upside the head! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    If you are on depression pills they do make you sleepy and will make you gain weight too.

    Ok, you asked for it emoticon Just kidding. I truly of understand. When I'm not getting enough sleep I want to eat and eat too. Maybe try doing a little exercise. It might perk you up so you don't feel sluggish and I'm told it will help with sleep if not done too late at night. Best wishes.

    Goodness!!You know sometimes the medications we are prescribed, make us sluggish, maybe look them up online and talk to the Dr about the sleep medication, seems like it is not working.
With me, was feeling lazy, but I know it is because I was eating wrong , sugar makes me lazy. So no more for me, eating more fruits a veggies, and got a long walk in.
Start small my friend, walk around the house with some happy music for 10 min. Drink a big glass of water. Small steps everyday. Wiggle and jiggle your body around, just be silly.
Take care buddy emoticon emoticon

Things are looking up!

Tuesday, August 05, 2014

My sinus unfection is going away and with it the horrible headaches and migraines. This weekend was GREAT! I was able to go out and do stuff with Shawn everyday and according to my fitbit I walked over 5000 steps on Friday and won over $100 at the casino!! emoticon So happy!!

Today I feel really motivated to get my to do list done. I'm going to start back up on my Slim in 6 workout from Beach Body, it's low impact but harder than my other workouts. I have lots of healthy meals planned. I also am going to do a great deal of cleaning, laundry, etc. With breaks so I don't get burned out, plus yoga and stretching :)

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

More aggravating news!

Monday, July 21, 2014

Well I went to see my new primary care physician. The good news is I really like him! The bad news is the shoulder pain I've been dealing with since November is the result of bone spurs and osteoarthritis. He gave me a shot of cortisone (which hurt like h***!) But now my shoulder feels sooo much better. He's getting me referrals to a new rheumatologist, neurologist, and ear, nose, and throat dr. So hopefully soon I will be feeling better, like my old self.

It's getting harder to exercise what with me getting 1-4 migraines a day. But I'm just taking it one day at a time and doing what I can when I can. emoticon Unfortunately that means I've gained back a bit of weight and with my dad home ALL WEEK I am not getting much in the way of any exercise in. emoticon But I am practicing a lot of deep breathing and trying to clean my room. But I will be going to Shawn's apt on Thursday at noon emoticon I hope everyone is having a great week! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It is really good news to like your doctor and good that he took care of your shoulder pain and made some referrals, so that you will be on the road to recovery
Focus on feeling better no worries right now emoticon emoticon emoticon

Not so good food-wise this weekend

Sunday, July 13, 2014

Lots of fast food but I mainly stuck to grilled bbq chicken wraps at mcd's, no fries or anything. Just wish I could have some grilled chicken. I'm staying at Shawn's till Tuesday afternoon (YA! alone time with him! Finally!). I had 3 migraines this week which was not fun. Felt worse for Brandi because I was too out of it to do much with her (though she is 20 so she can entertain herself). Hopefully I can get a lot accomplished this week since the last few have been a blur. I hope everyone Has a great rest if the weekend! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

feeling GRREAT!!

Friday, July 11, 2014

I cut gluten out of my diet and the rewards are astounding! My migraines have lessened and my joint pain is getting much better! Plus I've lost an additional 3 pounds emoticon in the last few days! So happy! I'm eating well and and feeling so good! Brandi, Shawn's niece, is down. The only problem is she's a super light sleeper that likes to sleep till 10am, meanwhile I've been up since 7 am and it's only 8:30 am and I'm hungry, thirsty and I know if I even attempt to go out to the kitchen I'll wake her up. So I'm being nice and just chilling out in Shawn's bedroom till I can't take it anymore emoticon

Next week is a breeze then the following week I have 2 doctor appointments and a therapy appoint, thus far. Plus my dad will how all week, so who knows how much exercise I'll get in. I figure I'll just keep eating my healthy diet and do what I can. My goal that week s just to maintain my weight, if nothing else. And I'm finally starting to stop obsessing about everything! I have really bad (clinical) anxiety and I'm finally letting it go, after 14 years!! emoticon NOW THAT IS SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE!! I hope everyone has a fab weekend! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
