Been sick a lot this spring

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

I haven't been on for a while to log in what I have been eating. Not that it would matter. I have been very sick. I have had pneumonia 6 times in the last 6 months. Part of my condition. But even though I have been sick, I still haven't lost any weight but then I haven't been eating a lot either. It is so frustrating. Congestive heart failure means I am tired all of the time, I can't exercise and even a minimal amount of food, I keep on. But I will keep trying. I have to - to keep living.


watching the scales

Saturday, October 20, 2012

It is interesting and frustrating at the same time. I see my weight bounce up and down - each day. only by a pound or two BUT my clothes tell me something is happening. I got into a pair of jeans that I haven't been able to wear for over 5 years and I was excited about it. I am not sure whether I like watching the scale so much, it reminds me of watching a pot of water. It only boils when you are not watching!

Enjoying myself

Sunday, October 14, 2012

I am a musician. I haven't been able to enjoy myself as much as I would like to due to some stress at work. I work 2 days a week out of the office. Things are easier now as the stress factor is gone. Since I am not as stressed, I am able to again perform my music and teach others and I enjoy it very much. Today was great. I was able to teach a group of adults a song to sing and to be able to stand while teaching for over 90 minutes and not feel exhausted. It was great!

    Well done. I enjoy music, but am tone deaf myself, though my best friend sings and plays the clarinet, flute, and sax. I know she plays more, but can't remember everything. Enjoy yourself.

Moving more BUT

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

So I have been more active- not what I would call exersizing but not spending as much time in front of the computer as I have. I have been walking - but that is because we have been visiting several places that requires you to walk to see things. I was gardening, and raking - light things since I am not really supposed to put extra strain on my heart by exersizing. Here is the BUT - I gained two pounds. Not much but when you are working so hard to lose weight - 2 pounds is 2 pounds. I also have gotten reminders to drink more water. I have to control how much I drink as I am on water pills to help with my heart problem. The more I drink the more I pee. The more I pee the more potassium my body puts out which could cause me a stroke. I feel like I am running around and not getting anywhere! The but is bugging me and I know that tomorrow will be different and I will keep trying. And no BUTS now!

A month ago, when I went to get a treatment done Chuck who has been working on me for a couple of years said that he could feel a sadness about me. It hit me again this morning as we were going to church. We were driving by corn fields that have been harvested. Tobacco fields that are finishing up being harvested. But also the beautiful fall colours. The maple trees are so many colours this year it is amazing. The golden rods and the purple asters mixed with the reds and yellows should lift you up but I feel sad. It feels like this year has gone by too fast. I am so grateful for so many things but I feel like I haven't accomplished anything. I know I have and it is just head games within myself. But the passing of time, reminds me that time has gone by too quickly. I feel like I didn't get to enjoy as much of the outdoors as I wanted this summer due to excessive heat. Now I am busy teaching full time again and it is the little things I am missing. I feel like I am just having a pitty party. I will be fine tomorrow, but today I feel a little sad.
