A day off from work today for three--clinic appts.

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

First appt is with a rheumatologist regarding fibromyalgia...haven't been treated for that for about 15+ years and my internist doesn't have a clue about what to do. It will be interesting to see what advances in FM treatment have occurred since last treated.

Then in afternoon I have an appt with my internist's lab to get the "shingles" shot (Zovirax) so hopefully I don't get shingles. My hubby claims he has not had any cold sores since he got his "shingles" shot. And an getting a Pneumovax shot since I don't want to get pneumonia (I work in a germy environment where it seems people are always coughing).

Then at 3:30 p.m. I will have another visit with the lymphedema clinic. I am getting really tired of wrapping my legs every night and wearing these wraps half of the day.

Then after such a relaxing day I hope to make it to the gym and swim and do the leg press, probably about 6:00 p.m.

Not exactly a vacation but will be a bit of reprieve from work where the most exciting thing has been "stuffing envelopes" ( and for this I went to college?).... at least I have a job. emoticon

iT'S a dreary, rainy Monday!!!

Monday, May 09, 2011

I am trying to be positive about things which is pretty hard when the rain is coming down so hard just before I have to leave for work. It seems people drive "even more like idiots when it is raining!"

Had a nice Mother's Day celebration with hubby and girlfriend. We went to a Chinese restaurant and I had tofu and veggies. Topped it off with a small cone at another place and not surprisingly the scale showed a small increase this a.m. Will wait until Wednesday to weigh again and push the water to get the sodium out.

Gotta run so I can leave a bit early due to the weather!!!! emoticon

    Drivers do get crazy in the rain and snow. Not sure why but it happens.

    Looks as if the rain will be around most of the week. At least it's warm now. Later this week it will get cool again. Ah, spring(?) in MN!

    Got behind two drivers who did not have their lights on and it was pretty darn dark...tried flashing my brights at them but to no avail....saw one narrowly miss a crash afterwards because a car changing lanes in front of them did not see them!!!! Hope they made it to wherever they were going safe and sound in spite of their error....

Weigh-in at WW 2nd week!!!

Saturday, May 07, 2011

Total loss is 6 lb for 2 weeks which I am x-tremely happy about....I looked back over my 3 years on Spark People and saw there was a pretty gradual pattern of gaining the 50 lb from 200 to 250 with the exception of small spikes at the times of surgeries. (I have had 5 sugeries in that time.)

I will be happy with a gradual weight loss and 6 lb in 2 weeks is off to a great start and so far is fine with me. I know I was hungry last week quite often and tried assuaging the hunger with fruit and this week will try more veggies (love cucumbers, celery and carrots)....so that may help as I know fruit has plenty of fructos in it....I may have overdone the fruit...I also intend on increasing my exercising... emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You are doing great! Plus the fruits and veggies have healthy nutrition--not just empty calories!

I made a wise decision by going to be early last night!!!

Tuesday, May 03, 2011

Sunday night I was up waaaay too late, waiting to hear the president's announcement and so I dragged around bleary eyed most of the day on only 5.5 hours or less sleep.

Last night I headed to bed by 7:30 and nodded off by 8:30. Overall, had a good night's sleep, waking up only a few times.

I was so tired I didn't do the leg wrappings before going to bed so will have to do that this morning which takes at least a half hour. Therefore, this is the end of this morning's blog.

Hope everyone has a great day today!!! emoticon

    Hope your day was a great one. I have no idea how you manage to do those leg wrappings by yourself. AWESOME!!
