I've not given up!

Sunday, February 15, 2009

I've lost 17 pounds since December 2008 and it has been really hard because the more exercises I do the more my MS acts up. I was going to have my daughter take another picture of me to put on my page and she said Oh yeah Mom that is the image you want people to see. MS causes my nerve endings to go nuts and I have Shingles all over and this time they showed up on my forehead! So I decided she had a point and I'd wait to take another picture.

    Don't let the MS win. I had a friend who has MS and she is in incredible shape. She worked out hard to keep her muscles strong! You can do it! Bummer on the shingles..hope they pass soon.

I know I haven't been very active on the website lately but I have been trying to keep track of what I eat and it's paid off! I just wish I could figure out how to move my tracker :'(


MS sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday, August 16, 2008

It has been far too long. Even though I haven't been able to post I have been drinking my water and not eating after dinner. I think I'll remove myself from the Emotional Eaters and any other group because I'm just sucking the life out of their accomplishments. I'm really sorry if I've let any group down but I'll right that wrong. To all of the people who have written to me I just want to say Thank You and once I got my eyesight back I was able to read all of my wonderful emails. It's amazing what a simple "Hey, how's it goin'?" can do for you. I've only lost 1.5 to 3 pounds but I'm going to try to get back in the swing of things.


4:30 in the morning

I went to my Neurologist Tuesday and she had to put me on another medicine in addition to the myriad of others that I take. I weighed 254 so I guess I can be thankful that it wasn't 264. She also pointed out that I should be taking Myripex 4 times per day and that is why my muscles won't stop jerking after exercise. Heat is the enemy of people with MS and with the price of gas the air conditioner is not an option so I try to make doctor appointments for myself and my son in the morning if at all possible. I have a cell phone so if I do have to get out in the afternoon and happen to get to hot and lose my mind I can call home and get directions back to my house. I try to get up this early so I can, if nothing else, do stretching exercises and a few strength training exercises. Please don't think me rude if you write to me and I do not immediately respond as the computer is giving me motion sickness these days...go figure! I haven't been able to blog or to show the exercises, water drank, etc. in a couple of weeks but I am doing it! I thought I'd be able to go swimming with the kids this year but the weather in Tennessee has gotten so wacky that we no longer have Spring or Fall seasons. It has been in the 90's here all week and next week is looking like more of the same. The purpose of this blog to anyone who might read this is to keep on keeping on! If you can only do a little then do a little and in the long run that little just may turn out to be a lot. Any exercise is better than none at all.


MS Blues but workin' through it

This week has been a "Brodie" week. His doctor appointment and meetings with teachers and it's only WEDNESDAY! I feel so drug out today but even if I am able to do only a few exercises I'm going to do it for me! The kids only have 9 more days of school and I found out yesterday that the new school year starts August 1st!!! Never in my life have I been in school in August (except college). My husband took a vacation day today so I can just veg! I weigh myself tomorrow so him being here is good on many levels; one being that I can't pig out or eat unhealthy crap. Next week my Mom is having surgery so I'll be on the interstate trying to find my way because I-40 started major "destruction" that will last for 14 months! I think I might have a doctor appointment in there somewhere but I'll just have to be MIA. It's so easy for me to get my daily amount of vegetables but fruit is so darned expensive as well as fruit juices that I'm having a hard time on that front. Any suggestions??
