Only needed 2 points when I noticed and that was easy....tracked 2 of my vitamins....
Can't believe I have been with Sparkpeople for 3-1/2 years.
Unfortunately, I weigh more than when I started. I have had several surgeries (2 total knees and others)....
I have not lost weight due to excuses. Today I have to quit making excuses for....
1. Exercising every day. (need to do those knee exercises daily, and make a plan).
2. Track my food...seem to do pretty well with breakfast and sometimes lunch but fizzle out for dinner and evening.
3. Get minimum of 8 hour of sleep. I actually feel best with 9 hours.
I need to concentrate on the rewards:
1. Being able to wear size 16, then 14 size clothes. (At this point I struggle with my clothes as most of the things in my closet don't fit.)
2. Feeling healthier and being able to walk and go up and down stairs without pain. (There have been a few days when I have used my walker due to pain and weakness.)
3. Feeling more alert and happier, less aware of negatives.
4. Being a motivator for others on SparkPeople.
Apparently there are certain windows programs that do not work well with Clear internet service and I have one of them it is Windows XP Version 5.1 Pack 3.... It could be all the windows XPs but I don't know for sure. I spent almost an hour on the phone with the technician and finally he said the only way my laptap could connect to the wifi was to do it without security (which would mean anyone could hook up to my wifi.... which is totally unacceptable. For now, I have to buy a looooong cord and connect my laptap directly to the modem and run it from my office to my favorite easy chair (if that is where I want to surf the net). This morning I am just sitting in my office using my laptop.
I hope there are not further disappointments with my new internet carrier. I am writing this in case anyone else has Windows XT and they are thinking of changing to Clear internet service.
Hope my sleep deficit is made up...I have been dragging around like a zombie lately. Had breakfast and am thinking about getting on the recumbent bike to loosen up as I have not been to the gym since last Thursday. Hope to make it there today (Wednesday). Gotta get in 12 visits this month and will get not only the $40 reward from Health Partners (me and hubby), but also will get $200 for doing that three months in a row. Whatadeal!!!!
I did not get lost going to work yesterday.
This morning because I forgot to put on my sleep mask to cover my eyes under my CPAP mask, I have some strange alien-llike marks on the top of my nose between my eyebrows. Hope that goes away before I go to work!!!
I read the results of the MRCP I had last Friday and the tumor (or cyst) on the pancreas increased a small amount from 9 mm to 11 mm (1.1 cm)). The doctor will let me know whether he wants to do a biopsy or whatever next week. Hopefully I won't "fall between the cracks" as he said the first time I had a test with him and he forgot to call me with results.
Today I plan to leave 15 minutes early just in case I miss my exit going to work again....I hope that doesn't happen.
I did get to bed by 9 so I got 8 hours of sleep and seemed to rest quite well, so I am feeling less frazzled than yesterday.
I still need to talk to my new internet provider to hook up my older laptap and I also need to cle1an my office and set up my new computer. (I think I will start with the internet hookup first.
I finally changed internet provider and phone as I could only get an "introductory price" from Comcast. I changed to a service called Clear which uses microwave towers (like cell phones) and the wireless connection is built into the receiver and does not require any programming or disc to be installed in my desktop computer (yeah!!!).... Also, I get internet and phone service for a total of $65 including all taxes and fees and includes free long distance in the US. Their website is clear.com if you are interested. I even got my favorite email address which is firstname.lastname@example.org I am so happy.....
P.S. I had been paying $65 for just the internet service and another $27 for a Vonage phone.
I missed my usual exit and had to drive an extra 10 miles so I was late to work. I had forgotten to take my morning dose of Mestinon for my eye muscles and guess that might be the reason I missed the exit. I don't remember even seeing the sign for the exit and before I knew it I was past the exit. It was somewhat embarrassing to tell my boss why I was late for work.
