End of my first Rock It challenge

Saturday, October 20, 2012

Last day of my first challenge. I wasn't able to start at the beginning and there were a few times where I forgot to check in. Tomorrow is the start of the fall challenge. This time I will remember to check in every week. I volunteered to help out with my team and I am excited about that. I really enjoyed the challenges last time and I can't wait to get started with my next one!

    I love the challenges! I'm doing the 5% challenge for fall, and so far am really enjoying it (although my weight loss this week was minimal, which makes me sad). :)

Fight with gall bladder

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

My gall bladder and I aren't getting along. I had an attack the other day. Very bad but I wouldn't go to the doctor. Probably not the best decision I know but I'm really nervous about it. Anyone go through this lately and have advice?

    Hoping you feel better. I had my gall bladder removed like ten years ago. It's an easy operation. Your stomach will hurt as if you did a lot of situps. Hope this helps.

    ouch big mom had gall bladder problem, had horrible bad pains then feel for weeks they the pain (would late half hour to an hour), went to see the doctor and saw the stones and said she needed surgery to remove the stones ( the surgery is suposose to tuff and the healing time long and painful) and doctor say right away cause if you don't there will be complications and extra surgeries.

Well my mom didn't get the surgery cause she had several things goin on, they were traveling then thanksgiving and meanwhile she kepted getting more pain and got worst and longer.

well my dad had to have (can't remember if it was before Thanksgiving or after) so my mom put it off again. and of course it got worse.

well it ended up that what the doctor warned her about happened and she had emergency surgery (two surgerys) and then the gall bladder surgiery.

she told me it was the most worst pain ever and the gall bladder surgery was not that bad in compaired to the other surgeries she had to have. (My mom ened up having her surgeries before my dad did)

so go to the doctor and get checked out and don't do what my mom did. One surgery is bad enough you don't want extra surgeries cause you waited.

I hope you feel better soon, I saw how painful mom felt when she had an atact when she was visting me.... ouch and double ouch

    I've had mine removed, and I can eat normally now with no pain whatsoever or special diet. It was outpatient surgery, I was at the surgery location at 6 am Friday and home and in bed by 11 am, back to work on Monday, full functional in 3 weeks. It truly was a godsend, because I was having episodes where I couldn't sleep for days due to the pain.

    Oh Tricia! I'm so very sorry to hear this. I know gall bladder issues can be very painful .

I know it can be scary to not go to doctors, but sometimes we can take care of ourselves through dietary changes. I think gall bladder problems often can be solved by diet.

How you feel better soon. emoticon

    Oh no. .. I am so sorry to hear that. My brother-in-law suffered with that quite often and had to stop eating fatty foods. I hope you feel some relief soon.

    I'm so sorry you're dealing with your gallbladder. I know how painful attacks can be. Hopefully you can manage yours with diet changes. When I first joined SP I was having issues with mine. When I went to the doctor, he actually told me to eat LESS vegetables. emoticon emoticon I stopped eating raw broccoli and haven't had another attack. (Fingers crossed) Good luck. I hope you feel better soon.

Today I swam with my girls and got 2.5 on the treadmill. Great workout and then we went grocery shopping. Not as much fun as being at the Y but totally necessary.

Who doesn't love Friday? I love the end of the week and getting to do fun stuff during the weekend! Tomorrow is Y morning. The girls have swimming lessons and I will get some laps in. I wish there was a Saturday water aerobics class and I usually go on Fridays but today I went to a memorial service. I plan to walk on the treadmill after I hit the pool and then grocery shopping which I don't love but it is necessary.

Rock It Blog II

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Let's see.....what are my thoughts of today.....

Well, I have been riding around on some farm visits today and noticing the leaves are really starting to change. I love fall. I love the cooler nights and the beautiful colors. Some people say it is depressing, but there is nothing prettier than a flaming red maple or a golden yellow poplar. It is harvest time for a lot of my farmer buddies and they are busy busy. I am noticing that tobacco is turning yellow and no I don't smoke, but it is pretty and it smells good when it is fired in the barns. Those guys are getting it up as hard as they can go!

My dog and cat (yes a cat has adopted me) are really frisky because of the weather change. I love to watch them prance around!
