After a whole month, I'm FINALLY feeling better. I went to the doctor today everything checked out fine. My sinus ct scan and chest xrays came back fine, and so did all of my blood tests. This is awesome!!

Accomplishments

Sunday, August 16, 2009

It's been a year since I started working on my body and I've lost 90 lbs! Not quite where I want to be yet, but I am so proud of myself. I work very hard for this. I'd still have another 50 lbs I'd like to lose. I don't know how long it'll take me but I am going to work for it.

I've also decided that it's time to work on accomplishing other goals. I mentioned in another blog that I'm thinking of going back to school for nursing. the other day i took my first big step towards accomplishing that goal. I enrolled in school. I haven't finished the registration process, but that should be done this week. I'm really nervous to go back to school but this is what I want and what I need. Wish me luck!

    Congrats on the 90 lbs loss! When I went back to school, I imagined myself in class after I had been there for awhile. I imagined it feeling normal and that I knew where I was going and what I was doing. I imagined feeling confident. It really helped a lot. I also went to campus a day early and found all of my classes so I wouldn't get lost while rushing to get to my next class. You are going to have a lot of fun!

I'm STILL sick!!

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

I've been sick for over a month now. Last week I went to see my doctor and he prescribed Zpack. He told me if i wasn't feeling better by Friday of last week, i should go back and see him. Friday came and went and I still wasn't feeling better. But i decided to wait until I finished taking all of the antibiotics (5 days worth) to go back to see hiim. Well, after this weekend I developed new symptoms! Yesterday I went back to my doctor and told him that nothing has changed. In fact, it's gotten worse. I also told him that i'm SO tired of being sick. So he ordered a bunch of tests. I took a TB test, blood was withdrawn, i'm going to have a chest x-ray, and i'm going to have a ct scan of my sinuses. He also gave me 5 new medicines including an inhaler. He says I might have asthma, but we're going to wait until the tests come back in order to make that diagnosis. I really really hope I don't have asthma. *sigh*. So frustrating!! I hope we get to the bottom of this SOON. I really am SO tired of being sick :(.

    Sally~
I am sorry to hear you are not feeling well. I will say a prayer for you. I have been fighting a cold &/or sinus issues with maybe a little allergy problems thrown in to the mix for the last month. Not bad enough for me to go to the doctor, but bad enough to make me wonder if I should. I hope you are feeling better.
Take Care!

The beginning of a new week

Monday, August 10, 2009

Last week I had a few slips and skipped a few workouts. This is the beginning of a new week and i'm very motivated to work hard to make up for last week. I've also decided to add a new goal for August. I'm going to aim for at least 5 yoga classes this month. I've really missed Bikram Yoga so much. If it wasn't so expensive I'd do more yoga, but I really can't afford $160 a month. So instead I'll aim for 5 classes a month. I think those extra yoga classes will help push my weight loss along.

    Good for you to recognize what you need to do in order to accomplish your goals. Lots of people don't. I didn't until I came here. You are in control here!

    Yoga sounds like fun! What are your reviews on it? I'm interested in trying it out.
