Rosalyn Does The Master Cleanser (MC) Oct. 21 - Nov. 3, 2008

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

Today I start the Maters Cleanser (the Lemonade Diet). Well, I actually started last night prepping with the Cinnamon Spice Super Dieter's Tea (6oz)

Okay so why am I doing the MC for detoxification and weight loss? Since leaving the hospital this Jan., I have gained and retained over 35 lbs of fat & fluid (lyphedema, a Cardiology issue). The meds I take are to keep the fluid down, my blood pressure down (never had high BP before going into the hospital), immune system stuff and to regulate my thyroid. Anyway, there are just a much of medical issues.

I start this detox as a positive way to clean my system out & I hope to bring my weight down to a workable place of hope again.

I plan to detox for 14 days. I am starting off with dizziness, headaches, stomach aches, chest pains & difficulty breathing, swelling in my limbs (it's gone down, but it's still up a bit from the weekend), stiffness & pain in my limbs, dry skin & mouth, some hair loss... So we'll see how well they clear up. I'll continue to take my meds.

weight - 200
Body % - 46.0
Water % - 39.0

I took the Cinnamon Spice Super Dieter's Tea as a prep laxative last night (6oz.) And this morning I began with the Salt Water Internal Bath by drinking a full quart of luke-warm H2O w/ 2 level teaspoons of uniodized sea salt...oh my did I do 2 table spoons???

I will try to write at least once a day & post pictures. Just came back from doing lab work this morning. Do you know I could barely get anything into that little cup! And after drinking all of that water. Also they say that "several eliminations will likely occur ... but I havn't had but 1 (my stomach does keep bubbling though).

Well, we'll see how it goes. Time to make my batch of detox lemonade! See ya soon!

    I pray you'll do well on this. I've done the 5 day fasting for gallstones. I had an awesome Journey with Jesus. I know you will too. Keep up the good work, and make sure to break it the way its recommended. Stay Blessed

Moving my Body @ The Gym!

Friday, October 10, 2008

I'm actually at the gym right now. I finished my Well-Fit portion, now my head hurts & my lower back is killing me. I think I might order something from the cafe and then get in the jacuzzi. I want to stay around because there's a "Hip Brazil Brazillian" dance class @ 4pm emoticon &
I want to try it out, since it's only once a month! I don't know if I'll hang but I'll try.

I also have choir tonight @ 630pm so I should take it easy!
Well, okay! Take care all! As the weekend starts tomorrow!!!!! emoticon

Okay so I'm back home and choir was nice. I actually felt a little headache a few times during rehersal, but I'm home now!

After strength training (60 minutes), I got on the PC (7 minutes) and then ate a side salad and 1/2 of turkey wrap. And then it was time for class.
I did the Brazillian dance class (70 minutes). It was fun & over the top, but I couldn't take a break. Well, I did stop a few times for H2O & adjust the moves, but not nearly as much as I should have. I got in the jacuzzi afterward and showered just in time to be on time for rehersal.

Now I'm watching my nitetime shows: Grey's Anatomy, Project Runway, Ugly Betty & Glam God... well I'm only on Grey's Anatomy so far. I might be sleep and have to watch the others tomorrow after my Cardio doctor's appt in the morning.

Okay, I'm moving on and look forward to another blessed day!

Tired...that's it, Just Tired.

Tuesday, October 07, 2008

I'm really tired and my right leg is hurting. I just finshed filling my pill boxes for the week and took my 2/4 bout of meds for the day. I'm tired again, & am trying to stay online in hopes that my headache will go away. But I just want & probably need to lay down because the meds make me dizzy sometimes. I also know that I have to go to the gym @ 1:30pm for the Cancer Well-Fit Program so I want to pick up around the house before I leave...but my head is swarming around.

On Another Note:

I'm so proud of all of my friends on SP that are doing their thing and continuing to stayFit and Healthy! Coming on SP becomes a highlight in my day.

Okay, I just wanted to get that out in hopes that it will take away some of the downside of not feeling so well.

When we are tired, HE is strong. Praying for you sis. I know mentally and physically you're tired. BUT GOD! HE didn't bring you this far to leave you now. When you're tired, REST but don't quit. Sometimes you have to stay in and not clean up to take care of YOU.

    Do what you can WHEN you can....and rest when you need to! If you know your head will feel bad after your meds, plan to spend ten to fifteen minutes slowly tidying up before you take your meds. Then you can rest easy. Keep going dear - this is just for now! When you get past this part you will be surprised how strong you were, when you didn't think you were at the time. HUGS, Sheri emoticon

202.6 lbs. my highest weight EVER!!!

Sunday, September 21, 2008

I weighed myself this morning. I should have done it as soon as I woke up, but I waited until I ate breakfast. So I know that the number was slightly higher than what it would be without food in my system. But what I saw on the scale was a number I always dreaded seeing.

One of the reasons I joined SP over a year ago was because I weighed over 190 pounds, and I just had to do something about that number before it hit 200 pounds.

Well... no need to worry about that anymore...
Sept. 21st, I'm up to 202.6 lbs, the HIGHEST I've ever been in my life!!! Again, I know a couple of pounds are because I just finished eating. So with that in mind, that would still put me around 200 pounds!

Something's gotta change! I know that these medication adjustments have my body retaining fluid & going through changes, but this is not cool!

Well, let's see what happens this week?!

You know te numbers in my weight when added together (202.6) equals a perfect 10! What a great place to start! And today the 21st when added together equals 3, the number of the Trinity! Whom better to start anew with!
Yes I'm feelin better already! Thank you Lord!!!

  I'm just to give hugs and to remind you there are some things in life we can only change when we submit to our Fathers will and wait on His timing. In the meantime our only responsibility is to make healthy choices in food & exercise selections. Have a happy and blessed day. MarilynC

    emoticon Okay, I can't help but LOL. Oh my MSPROVERBS. Some like myself can't wait to see the scale say 202 pounds. When it does, I'll be throwing a party.

I'm happy you're doing okay with it now, and that you're focused. Remember you've been very sick, and you've been stressed out. Now you're back on track. You'll do fine.

Vitamin D Deficiency & Armour Thyroid 30 Days To A Change...

Thursday, September 18, 2008

So yesterday my Oncologist called and I find out that my Vit D is like a 20, so I'm Vitamin D deficient! Good thing she did those labs along with my thyroid levels! I was experiencing so many different symptoms that she thought it might be vitamin D.

So yesterday I started surfing the web to find out more about dangers of and solutions for... And today I went to Lazy Acres and bought 2 months worth. My doctor wants me to take 4,000 units and the bottle contains 120 2,000 unit gel capsules.

I'm excited about taking the pills. I'm hoping that it will help my weight loss, hair loss, muscle aches, and breaking of cuticles & skin around my nails, just to name a few problems.

AMOUR THYROID for my hypothyroidism, well I'm back on it as of today. i'm excited it was the first thyroid med I had taken and worked pretty well. So , once again, HOPEFULLY I'll do my part & then with God's direction, these (and the other) medical setbacks will get better and be eliminated or find their right place in my body!

Okay, just wanted to put this out there, in case someone has had an experience (or knows of someone) with these two medical issues (Vitamin D deficiency or a Low Thyroid).

    Thanks for sharing. God is good, I know you'll be back to yourself soon. I have a close co worker who had vitamin D deficiency. She's also been taking her pills and doing well. And she loves the sun, so she's been soaking up a few minutes daily to get the natural vitamin D too.
