i guess most of you have been dealing with your own fair share of weather woes, most of the country has been having excessive heat lately...what a crazy week its been here, the last 2 days it was extreme heat and we were under an advisory, and today was hot, not terribly hot, i went to physical therapy in my non air conditioned car and i didnt sweat too bad, i didnt smell too rank....but, not long after i got home, it started down pouring rain, we have neighbors who have trees down all around them, the road was blocked not too far from me by a tree, and now i just hear thunder, thunder all around me, but no rain, no wind, no lightening....
i have to go to doc tomorrow, watch it be 99 again, blah
so, i had a solo cup of pepsi today, first soda i have had in a week or longer, but, i just wanted something other than water, i am just so sick of plain water, and that pepsi tasted pretty darn good.....
but i want to keep that 2 lbs off that i have lost and i vow no more the rest of this week....
wonder if my doctors scale and my scale have consulted and will agree....

so i finally got in touch with my hairsylist today, and since i had forgotten that school goes back here on wednesday, next week, she is all booked up until tuesday, i had half a mind to call someone else, but i have been going to her for awhile and she does a good job, i am reluctant to change....
so, this got me to thinking about all the other things i am reluctant to change, perhaps myself is the major thing.
my residence as well, we have been wanting to move for awhile and let one place slip right out of our hands, but, we had excuses, we didnt like the neighbors or the location, now a new place is up for sale, land only, which means we would have to do alot of work, but, ahhhhhh, i cant decide
i am down a pound and my scale is not going to be touched for a week, if i have the willpower, and i go back to the doctor on friday, so i will see if her scale says "your scale is lying to you" or, if i believe my scale and hers is the liar....
i am one step away from putting a dew rag on like bret micheals and just saying the heck with it..........

its dang hot here in east ky today, and is supposed to be even hotter tomorrow...so, i skipped physical therapy today, not cuz i was too sore or whatever, but cuz my ac has gone out on my car, and stayed out since 2 years ago, i have had it worked on 2 times and didnt feel like sinking more money into it, so until the heat breaks i am stuck at home or dependent on others, or just have to suck it up and sweat....
so, now on with my news, i got on the scale today and GULP, had lost a pound, only one pound, but its a loss and im happy, yesterday i stayed right on track, i didnt go over my calories and even though i still cant walk or do any really physical exercising involving my leg, i have been doing my dumbbells and using the bike at pt and the leg press, i really need one of those at home.
and so today, so far, i have also done pretty good, ok, so i had 2 spicy drumettes...but i cut them up into a salad with low cal dressing and water only to drink, water water water
i am supposed to go see my doc in the next few days for my blood work and follow up and to get my meds refilled, but dang its supposed to be over 105 heat index here tomorrow, i think i will put it off until friday and see if its any cooler...
i feel good, for the first time in awhile, 1 lb can make me feel this good, imagine how good i am gonna feel after 10 and 20 and so on
good luck to everyone and stay cool

today i was doing some blog reading and page reading and i read something about staying motivated, dont rememeber exactly where i read it, but the topic was pretty much, telling us that we should keep our goals in mind, keep our reasons in mind, whenever we begin to fail or fall, we should always have that close at hand to remind us of why it is we are working so hard to get fit, lose weight, get healthy, whatever the case may be.
well i dont have to look very far, i dont have to put up visual reminders because i carry them around with me all day, everyday, i have since i was about 13....i am speaking of course about my breasts, my bazooms, my knockers, my lovebags, my jugs, my headlights, my rack....whatever it is that they are so often and usually crudely by men, referred to as.
my main motivation at this time in my life is to lose enough weight to qualify me for a breast reduction surgery. my insurance will pay, due to severe back and neck pain, for which i currently take medication, wear pain patches, and have had to go to physical therapy over in the past.
however, they wont pay, until i reach certain guidelines. one of them is that my bmi either has to be below 36, or, i have to show that i have consistently lost a significant amount of weight for 6 straight months. and i still have to be so far within the bmi in order for them to pay.
at least this is what the surgeon i consulted told me, i havent been to any others, because this one, is the one i want, in lexington ky, a woman who i have gotten good reviews about.
i have been in such bad back and neck pain the last week.
i have tried new pillows, icy hot, patches, massages. soaking, heat, ice, tens unit.
alas, it is no use.
i know the only relief i will ever get is when i can have this albatross removed from my chest, and i still have many numbers between where i am now and 36....
