Almost gave up

Monday, October 22, 2012

Crazy, busy, out of whack life...spiraled into depression and using sugar and caffeine to get through the day.

At my highest weight ever...but today is a fresh start. For some reason I have gotten out of the habit of drinking water and going to the club to work out. At this weight it feels depressing to even try again, but I know other people have started much higher and done great.

So back to the basics...tracking food and getting my butt moving.

Have a great day everyone!

Suzanne

    Way to turn around and get back on track! You can do it - failure is only failure if you stayed down. You got up and are hitting it again! Way to go and best wishes!!

Tri

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

It has been such a whirlwind of a summer, with little me time and lots of activity. I am scheduled to compete in a Sprint Tri in a couple of weeks, aside from swimming, no real training...I just want to finish and not die.

I need to buy new shoes and a swimsuit, bike shorts, and get the bike tuned up...the incidental things you don't think of when signing up!

It will be a rush when it is over...just wish I had trained more.

Have a great day!

    I think you will do better than you think! Sometimes the adrenaline rush will take us where we won't go in training, anyway. Good luck and I hope you will blog about the Tri after it's over!

I got the blues...

Saturday, March 31, 2012

My knee surgery went great, better than expected. No more pain!

Feeling tired and down. I have to work today. Usually I am excited, but I think I really need a weekend off, and its not gonna be this one...

Tomorrow I start 3o days no sugar no flour...I could use some support! My husband is not buying in...and it's almost Easter! And I LOVE SUGAR!

Jelly beans, chocolate, I even like PEEPS...

Oh well. I will feel better without the sugar.

Have a good weekend everyone!

Time for surgery!

Friday, February 17, 2012

Well, I went to see another ortho for a second opinion, glad I did. After discussing the options I decided to opt for cleaning out the knee, the sooner the better. It will be removing cushion, but cushion that is no longer functioning well. I do have arthritis in my knees, more than the other doctor reported. Swimming is still cool as well as walking. So, scheduled the surgery for March 1st.

Last night I tripped and fell...one of those "oh crap" moments. Landed on my back, messed up the left leg even more. Luckily the pain in the back of my knee now offsets the pain in the front. I'm not going back to the doctor yet, I was just there...ice and heat for now, and I am buying stock in Tylenol.

I know my weight is aggravating this situation, but I am not going to beat myself up. Just keepin on keepin on...

Hope you all have a great weekend, and thanks for the support!

    I'm glad you have surgery on the schedule...my husband had that "cleaning out" a few years back and it really helped.

Try to stay vertical! That too will help!!! Good luck.

Knee update

Friday, February 10, 2012

Hey everyone,

Feeling much better today. I got the news, I have a sprained knee and a small tear in my meniscus. So it turns out that I have been walking around, clowning, and working out with this since mid September! I need to make an appointment to go back to the ortho and see what he wants to do. I am looking forward to the pain being gone.

I know that losing weight will help this situation.

A day at a time.

Have a good weekend!

Suzanne
