I'm Giving Myself 2 Gifts of Health, this 1st week of August 2010!!!
In the middle of writing in my SP Journal, I came up with the idea of giving myself 2 healthy gifts, and who doesn't like gifts!?!! Now it may seem like a challenge, but I'm calling it a gift! So feel free to join me, it's for the 1st week in August!
This is an excerpt from my SP Community Journal, "A Gift of Health July 2010 & Beyond.
"So today is the 1st of August & it's the beginning of the week, SundaY! So I started tracking in my book again. 6:30am Thyroid Med, 8am take vitals & have breakfast!
I had 2 scrambled eggs (prepared w/1 teaspoon of Grapeseed oil & 1 small pack of black pepper) for breakfast. Take morning meds about 9:30am (10 pills).
10am, Set out to do Body Gospel's Body Revival (33minutes) which would leave me about 30 minutes to get ready for church, but ended up only doing 19 minutes...my tummy wasn't feeling so good(& that's in addition to a tight pain that I've had since Sat. morning in my lift tri&bicep) ...yeah, so now my stomach is not doing so well, but I'll take a shower and see how I feel!
Oh yeah, so here's a brief update on what I've been doing.... ummmmm...well, actually not too much in terms of exercising and eating like I want to. But steps is what will keep me moving forward. So I have done things like wash dishes, take out a bag of trash, ...ummmmm...well...I've done some other stuff too, but I'll try to share later, on account of my tummy not feeling well, and me trying to get to church for 1st Sunday, communion.
***7 day journey of Healthy Gifts this 1st week of August 2010***
So all the best as we begin August! I really do hope to get a tv workout and walking in everyday this week! That's my gift to myself for this 1st week of August!
1) Do a tv/dvd workout in the morning and walk for about 5 minutes when I come home!
2) I will also try to (no I shall) give myself a daily gift of veggies (if from the can I'll rinse them with H2O before cooking).
Feel free to join me with this 7 day journey of Healthy Gifts this 1st week of August 2010!
I just came up with it, but use it for motivation, I know I will! If you don't like these 2 gifts of health, come up with your own...it's just for 1 week! "

WOW The Meds I Take Can Increase My Cholesterol...NOT GOOD!
I'm doing research about high Triglycerides, and I'm reading and truly believe that my Hypothyroid & my Heart Meds are contributing greatly to the high Tri #s.
Well, I'm going to keep up with this, it's quite interesting. I didn't have all these problems until getting on all these meds after doctors messed things up in the hospital a couple of years ago.
But God is, and I believe that there is complete healing in store for me!
Until the next blog, take care!

So I just left my 3 month Oncology follow up. Great appointment as always...except...
Scales show 220 lbs., Triglycerides at 330 ( I think), and well, there where other things that were not so good, but these 2 things I need to do, I want to do what I can! She wants me to see the Nutritionist at the Cancer Center, & I'll make an appt. as soon as I can (but with my school schedule it's a bit hard. So until I can get to her & actually even afterwards...
I could use your help! So Spark Friends can you help me?
I'm told that the Chemotherapy that I had pushed me into a body that's aged beyond what my birthdate shows. I have been premenopasal & my hormones are still currently OFF. So I CAN'T eat like I used to and have the same results. And honestly, I don't really know what to eat!
PLUS I have a LOW THYROID due to the radiation I had. So ...
WELL, I JUST NEED SO HELP! SOME SUGGESTIONS! SOME EXTRA GUIDIANCE with EATING & EXERCISE!!!
So Spark Friends can you help me? encourage me? support me? anything positive?
Because I've got to get my Trigylc. # and my weight # DOWN!!!!!!!

So I decided to this this challenge on another site & They asked to weigh yourself or do measurements. I decided to do both. And today I thought to check my measurements. AND OH MY GOODNESS, I LOST INCHES!!!!!!! Which means a lot when my weight goes back and forth & I havn't seen anything under 200 in sooooo long!
Well, being soooo happy, I thought I'd share with my SP Friends! So here it is!
~Beginning March Stats:
5'5", 217 lbs, Arms: 15", Thorax: 34", Bust: 48", Tummy: 43.5", Hips: 48", Thighs: 28"
~March 31st Update: 208.8 lbs (-9) 45.9% body fat & 39.2% body water
~April 2 - Good Friday:
207.2 lbs, Arms: 14", Thorax: 35", Bust: 43", Tummy: 40", Hips: 46", Thighs: 27"
Well, this was enough to encourage me to do more working out! Next week I start a new schedule my thoughts are togo to the gym before I come home! So we'll see it that helps me to get to the gym more than 1x a week (which has been all that I've been able to do). So As I enter my 3rd month at the gym, I think I can upgrade it a bit!
Well, Good Friday to you all and Take Care!!!
