New Year means new and better things.

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I have been suffering from a medical condition since June 2011. I have seen various doctors and my diagnosis is still unknown. I am hoping that this year will bring me answers so I can get back to being a healthy me. I would still like to lose 75 pounds. This illness makes exercise impossible and consuming food/beverages even unbearable. But yet I am determined. I am thinking of what my goals will be so i am putting it here so I have a written account of my goals.

20 pounds lost and I am going to buy a new outfit(I should do it now as my clothes are quite saggy, but this gives me more motivation Plus I hate buying clothes for myself so this should be fun, new sizes to buy).

40 pounds lost and I am going to get professional pictures taken. I really have always hated to have my picture taken.

60 pounds lost and I am going to apply to a modeling agency as it has always been a dream of mine.

75 pounds i am going to book a trip somewhere where I have never been and flaunt my new figure.

    Hope your Dr. can find what the problem is. Said a prayer for you.

I like how you have specific goal rewards. I do that too.

Have a Happy Healthy New Year!! emoticon

I am back after a painful hiatus..
As I thought the end of last year was bad enough and was proven wrong the beginning of this year when my mother unexpectantly passed away.
I am struggling really hard because she was so young and I am trying not to let the emotions take over control and make me overeat or eat the wrong things..Its hard to not think my life is over along with hers..
It seems everytime I dieted she dieted, we were partners in that. I even showed her how to join sparkpeople so she could record things easier.
I know One Day At A Time, but do the days have to be so hard?

    I can't imagine how hard this is for you. So sad to lose a mom and friend! Hope your day is a blessed one even through the pain.

    My deepest sympathy on the loss of your Mom.

When the days are too hard to take one at a time, then take life one hour (and one meal) at a time... when that's too much to deal with, take it five minutes at a time!

Two years ago, I THOUGHT I was depressed and my life was "tough" - I WAS going through one of the most depressing times of my life - and then my son was killed.

I'm STILL struggling each day. I'm trying to accept that THIS is my new reality. There isn't a time when it won't be true, so this is my life now... and living our lives isn't a temporary thing.

Hang in there ~ Take care ~ Elizabeth

    I am so sorry for you with the loss of your mother. I am trying hard to reduce so I do not do that to my daughter. I want to be able to see her marry, have babies and achieve her goals. emoticon

It is hard to lose a mom, at any age. May your memories of her help inspire you to take care of yourself... as you know she would want you to do.

Thoughts and prayers are headed your way.

Fresh Start

Friday, August 21, 2009

So I am starting fresh..I was so upset with the news from my doctor of limiting my exercise so my foot would heal up that was being lazy. I wasn't recording my food. I don't think I overdid anything but I can't say for sure that I did.
I was so upset that I can't exercise I just didn't care, well I snapped out of it, thank goodness i missed logging for only 2 days.
I have been looking for exercises where i am easy on my feet until my doctor appointment in 3 weeks when I get fitted for "special" shoes.
I found some helpful information on sparkpeople, from other people, articles and teams.
Which is helpful, because even when I am able to exercise again I can tell my disabled mother and my friend who has bad knees of exercises that they can do and work.
emoticon Here's to a fresh new beginning!!

    Great look at the foot problem. I know when I have my foot surgery I could not do anything. But I did learn that I could sit in my chair at home and play with dumbels and do upper body. Another thing you can do a few exercises whle laying down like leg raises and such. You have such a great outlook.

So I may have done more than sprain m ankle

Thursday, August 13, 2009

I called the doctor today because of two things....My right ankle is tender and sore and the Ace brace doesn't seem to be helping but I noticed a soreness in my Left foot, when I walk the foot feels tender and looks swollen as well. The top of my Right foot is starting to feel a little sore now too but no burning, so both feet will need to be x-rayed. Lucky Freaking ME!!!!
So I called the doctor and explained my situation and they said I could come in Monday, I explained I felt this discomfort before, When I almost broke my metatarsal bone in two. You see I have a high pain tolerance and I had discomfort before in my foot and continued to walk on it thinking it would go away. I did a March of Dimes walk and after that I decided to go to doctor cuz it was now burning..When I went to doctor he was mad cuz I had just a small strip left before the bone was totally broken. He said didn't you feel any pain, my response i felt some discomfort. Well know I feel the discomfort and burning. I know I have been running a lot lately and I remember slipping on wet mud and hitting a hole so anything is possible. Still my appointment is Monday.
So I am scared to go to doctor, I don't want my foot or feet to be out of commission because I am afraid if I can't workout I will gain all my weight back, all that hard work would be gone. I am already getting upset just thinking about it....

    First, before you enter panic mode, remember that there ARE other ways to exercise, even if the situation is bad. Water exercise would probably be the way to go. You could wave your arms around, do leg lifts while sitting--anything to keep moving your body. You may have to be more careful with your food intake if you are laid up for a while, but you can do this. Keep talking to people here at Spark and we'll help you through it!

Hurt my ankle!!!

Monday, August 10, 2009

I should have rested my body longer, but I didn't want to miss a workout, so I wore an ace ankle wrap thinking it would help and that I could still work out. Not so, now my ankle is real sore, swollen and tender to touch.
So know how am I suppose to workout??? I typically workout out everyday, cardio walking, running, basketball, dancing..anything to get me moving now I am a bumb on the chair at the computer.. emoticon

    Ice, elevate and rest the ankle.
The more you get the swelling down the sooner you will be back at it!

    Let your body heal but you can still do the strength training and that will help you when you are able to start dong cardio again.
