Life is great.

Sunday, May 01, 2011

The past couple months my husband and I have been able to spend time together, just the two of us. We are able to relax and share laughs and become affectionate again. We got to caught up in everyday life to just spend time with each other.

Since then I have become happier, more cheerful and upbeat and smiling alot more. I find myself humming or singing songs as I go about my daily life. I am becoming more active and got back to my fitness program again. I guess I just needed to let my life happen instead of trying to plan everything out.

Life is great if you just let it happen and keep a smile on your face.

    You have a lovely attitude. I find that fitness helps me to enjoy life more, and that makes it easier for me to stay fit!

    Wonderful.. for you! One of the benefits of growing older is learning to slow down.. and let life happen, as you put it.

Congrats on all your wonderful successes!

Sparkle On,

A really Good day.

Saturday, April 09, 2011

Today was the best day I have had in months. My colitis is improved, my migraines are less often, and I got more things done in one day than I've done in weeks.
I think with the nice weather it made me feel good and I had a kick in my step. I do have to get back to taking care of myself more and I plan to do that. So this week I started back to exercising and next week I will start logging my meals.
It's been a long, hard and cold winter and I just want to get back to living again. One day at a time and I will do it. emoticon

    I'm glad you had a good day and are feeling better. I'm sure you can get back to exercising and tracking your food regularly. I've taken off a month (or more) from exercising and am determined to get back into it this week. The warmer weather helps a lot.

    Sure seems like winter has dragged on forever....yesterday I was out raking up the rest of my leaves from the garden. It felt great. It felt great to see everyone else out in the neighborhood doing the same thing. I think we're ALL good and ready for Spring. With it comes renewed hope.

I'm glad you are feeling better.

Friends at SparkPeople.

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

I have not been feeling well, dealing with my ulcerative colitis and poor attitudes at work. I was started to feel overwhelmed and depressed. I felt like I didn't know who I was anymore and what I wanted out of my life.
Then one day as I was catching up on my SparkPeople site I started reading about all the successful people who made it through challenges in life and are still going strong. All of them had one thing in common, a positive attitude to help get them through thier challenges.
After reading and thinking about them, I felt like a weight was taken off my shoulder. I now know that how you react to things makes a big difference. Since then I have a smile on my face, a kick in my step and I feel like I am living again.
So thank all of my SparkPeople friends and everyone else who shared their successful stories with us.
Goodbye negativity, hello positivity. Keep Smiling! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticonCongrats on not allowing yourself to sink into depression! You can do this, and we're all right here with you. The awesome thing at SP is that you gain inspiration from others and then you share it here like this and become an inspiration yourself. :)

Not a good start.

Tuesday, February 01, 2011

February is not starting out to well besides the terrible white, wet and wintry weather. I had to cancel my trip to Florida because I couldn't get my Remicade infusion done today. I hope it happens Friday which is the day we were going to leave. My stomach is not doing reall well and the drive to Florida would not be a pleasant trip at all. I am almost over my cold but this weather isn't helping at all. I hope to get some kind of exercise done tomorrow and at least get a little more active. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    The sun should come out soon after this storm, and that does unbelievable things for our mood - and take care of your tummmy!

    STARTLIGHT, February hasn't started out the best for me either. However, I know that life comes with it's ups and downs, it's normal and not usual. I am sorry to hear that you had to cancel your trip to Florida. But I so know that things happen for a very good reason, unfortunately we don't also know why. I hope you get better soon and are able to see the beauty of life. We are all blessed everyday with gifts...I had to struggle to see the good in today, once I did, I realized it wasn't so bad after all. Hugs to you!!

    Don't push yourself. Your health issues mean you shouldn't overdo it. Hope you feel better after the Remicade.

Taking one day at a time.

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Still trying to get over the cold and on top of that I have a delay in getting my next Remicade infusion. So I am not feeling all that great and just don't have the energy to do anything fitness wise. I have been stretching daily but that's about it. I haven't been eating normally so I haven't been tracking my food. I was hoping I will feel better by the 4th of February to leave for a week in Florida, but I guess I will have to wait and see. Life goes on and so will I, just a little at a time. emoticon

    The stretching sounds good. Hang in there.

    Hope you're over that cold soon. I know it's frustrating, but waiting till you get better is the best way to go when it comes to exercise.

    emoticon Hope you start feeling better soon. Best not to push yourself too hard right now. It's good you are doing the stretching, that will help when you do start feeling more active.
