Trying to do well this week with limits...

Thursday, August 05, 2010

Ok, so I am still trying to keep the limits I have set.

I am trying to still make better food choices and to get what exercise I can.

I skipped the pool this morning because I have had a migraine since yesterday afternoon and I am still fighting it. I also have a sinus infection and it is not helping me to feel any better.

Anyway... hoping to do enough to continue the loss!

Hugs, Tina

    Don't feel bad, Tina, you have had quite a year. I have fibromyalgia and just gave into the pain gained back up to 300 again but I am on a mission and you are too. We will make this work for us and you should be so proud of what you have already accomplished. We both deserve to live and we will get through this as well. My thoughts and prayers are with you - let's journey on! emoticon

    Sometimes it is best just to let your body catch up. Take care of yourself and just do what you can. Tomorrow will hopefully bring a less hurtful head and you can get to some exercise. Take care. I know you can do it:)

Why does this always happen?

Saturday, July 31, 2010

Ok, so I have worked out like a mad woman, and have eaten correctly for the week. I am making good choices and yet... I GET SICK!

Why do I often get sick as soon as I am starting to really feel good????

UUUGGGHHHH I now have a low grade fever and am dealing with sinus congestion, ears hurting and the darndest sore throat! Anyway, I will do what I can to feel better! I am downing FAR too many calories in Orange Juice but that is OK, I need the fluids and the vitamin C.

Hugs... Tina

    Hope you are feeling better by now. When I drink OJ I often water it down with ice so that I still get the C but also not as many calories and a lot of liquid. You might think about doing that. Take care.

Great day~

Friday, July 30, 2010

Ok, today I got up and went to Water Aerobics.... We did a total Abs workout... over 800 crunches with high cardio mixed in!. Then home and on to work for a bit.... THEN tonight I took the boys and hubby back to the gym. I did another 1/2 hr of a water aerobics class (cardio) and then swam with the family another hour. I logged 3 hrs total in the pool and though I have been "dry" 2 hrs I am still prune fingered LOL!

I have eaten sensibly even with a bit of reduced fat ice cream I did well... I am proud of my choices today and feel good having burned almost double what I have eaten!

Nothing like wearing out a body!
Tina

Keeping Accountable

Thursday, July 29, 2010

Well, though I have not been logging my food and all, I have made good choices most of the time.

Yesterday was the day that I go to lunch with friends and they all splurge... I chose a cup of soup and side salad. I stuck with water. I also was able to resist all junk at Walmart and bought carrots and cucumber to go along with my tomatoes at home. I broke into the carrots as soon as I hit the van since I was starving, but it was NOT a candy bar etc... So I am proud of my choices.

I will also make good choices today, I will be in the pool in 1/2 hr and will workout HARD... then on to great choices the rest of the day!

Hugs, Tina

Time to Move FORWARD AND DOWNWARD

Saturday, July 24, 2010

So... life is going to move on!

I am tired of being so tired.

I finally pushed the Dr. to give me finally some Thyroid meds. Though my levels are .01 and .1 within the normal range... I don't feel like they are.

Anyway... I totally updated my front page intro... go check it out if ya want!

Hugs, Tina

    Just a thought Tina, I'm on Armour Thyroid a natural thyroid with no side affects. Most docs don't like to order it but if you have a natural doc, go for it.
Plus I feel so for you and all you're going through I have an online prayer team and I'm putting you on it. God is with you. Pray that the blood of the Lord will cover you and protect you. Often spiritually before a great blessing is attack including car accidents. Ask for God's protection.

    Glad you talked your doctor into prescribing thyroid medication. You did not state which test level you posted. I assume it was TSH. Could be your Free T-3 and Free T-4, hormone levels and/or adrenaline is off. My fatigue, etc. turned out to be low estrogen, etc problems since all my thyroid levels were normal. Hope you feel better soon. emoticon

    I am glad to hear that you went with your gut feeling and corrected it even if it didn't need correcting. Often people don't listen to their instincts and then later they get upset with themselves for not listening it. emoticon

    Good luck with the thyroid, it can cause havoc when not in balance (I'm hypo- and hyper-thyroid, so I've been thru all the treatments except radiation).
