I hit the 35lb weight loss today! Woo hoo!

My favorite strength training is the stability ball. It really helps with my lower back pain.

My personal strength trait is persistence. I realize this isn't a diet but a new lifestyle. I'm grateful to the tools I utilize daily such as SP, Fitbit, It Works, my workout buddies and my supportive family.

I'm now able to go up several flights of stairs without getting winded, play with my grandchildren, not have to take insulin, fit into my skinny clothes and get a clean bill of health from my physician.

I learned a lot about myself along the way and will continue to do so as I continue this journey & apply my determination to other goals! The possibilities are endless!

Thank you and have a fantastic weekend!

Finished a 10k feeling sore but stronger! I never envisioned my self as enjoying running.

I got a wonderful nights rest and ate within my ranges. I also made a SP recipe of protein bars that came out delicious.

Enjoy your evening!

I'm back from dr appts. I lost 5 last month. I've been having issues with vertigo for years. Lately, it's gotten worse. My dr had me take Benodrl,do a saline solution for my sinuses, gargle with warm salt water, and I got a patch for the nausea that's supposed to help for three days.

I had to leave work early do to dizzy & nauseous. Came home & slept 4 hours. My dr said to contact her if it doesn't go away so we can schdule a MRI to check for a brain lesion. I'm also going to make an aapt with audiologist to check on the inner ear.

Other than that, I'm doing great.

    Have you tried the exercises called the Epley Manouver? They really worked with my husband's vertigo. emoticon

    Oh goodness girlfriend! I'll send you my strongest "be well" thoughts over the computer airways!!!!

Keep us posted and I do hope you feel better soon.

btw, have you tried putting a few drops of olive oil in each ear each night????? If you do decide to try it, I promise you it won't hurt you...

Oh yes and, congrats on your 5 lbs last month!!!!

Cheers,
Sandi

    We don't seem to have these colour runs up in Canada. However, do you get that stuff off your clothes? It is a great idea to give yourself these events as goals. They are tangible and something to look forward to accomplishing. emoticon

I got in the track, flights of stairs, and now enjoying watching my youngest son cook me dinner at his place.
