Another weekend DONE

Thursday, April 23, 2009

Today I embark on giving my house a complete deep cleaning. Not becuase it needs it, but because once again, family has invited themselves for the weekend. 'Would not be so bad, but half of this family was here last weekend.
My husband's best friend from college and 12 yo daughter came last weekend with 24 hours notice. This time, they called on Tuesday night and announced they are coming back with this time his wife and her 90 year old father.
They live 4 hours away in NC and are coming here so that the wife can see my iridologist (holistic practioner who looks into the iris and can tell what is wrong within the body) Of course, the only time available is at 4 pm Saturday afternoon. I get to go downtown with her since she knows nothing about Greenville. So after we fight for a parking space or I just give up and park in a municipal lot, I will drop her off and that my walk during the 90 minute appointment I am not sure if I will be spending Sat or Sunday morning taking her shopping for shoes and organic food.
I know Friday I will start cooking for the weekend meals since I am still challenged and will not be able to eat a lot of the foods I will make for them.
I pray this is the last weekend with guests. I think I honestly would not mind my inlaws coming to visit. We have been in this house for 4 years now and they have not made it to SC yet.
Oh well. I should not complain. This guy is more family to us than my own brother.

    I HEAR you! I like to have company, but not one weekend after another. Part of the problem is me, because I wear myself out making sure that everything is done ahead of time and the house is perfect. Then I waste energy being annoyed that I won't have much opportunity for 'alone' time while company is in the house.
On the other hand, once the company arrives, I have a wonderful time and am glad that they came. Go figure emoticon

It sounds like you have planned ahead to keep on track with your nutrition and your fitness activities. That's a good thing emoticon

Enjoy,

    If flustration was an exercise I think our minutes would add of quickly. sometimes writing helps iron out the wrinkled spots we get stuck in. I have been ironing all week ..

another day

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

I listened to my body yesterday and actually lost some weight. I just added on a bit more protein, 2 flour tortillas and I gave in and had 2 cinammon sugar cookies

This morning I went in for my monthly trigger point injections in the neck (they were postponed for an extra 2 weeks due to the doctor being out sick) Trust me I looked forward to the relief. I won't feel anything really for a day or two, but hopefully it will happen. I am getting another round of MRI"s on my neck and lower back soon. This is all due to an auto accident in Nov 2006 when a woman hit me head on on a 7 lane road I was going straight, she could not figure where she wanted to turn from the opposite direction and hit an 18 wheeler, then hit me. Of course she had no insurance.

So now something else to look forward to..

My body is saying feed me.

Monday, April 20, 2009

I think I figured something out... the more I try with everything, the more I gain. Followed the instructions the doctor and pharmacist gave and I gained weight. Over the weekend had company, ate a few additional things not on the list and lost some of the weight. I begin to wonder... is my body really that set against rules?

week one almost over

Sunday, April 19, 2009

This morning, once again I was afraid to step on the scale. With good reason, the scale was showing no more weight loss, but a .4 of a pound increase since yesterday. I am really believing more that the synthoid and T3 meds, along with the HCG are not working. I am in starvation mode with the HCG and only goodness knows whether the thryoid meds are the right strength for me. We talked about increasing them this week and most likely I see that happening
Last night I did have a bit more meat and a piece of bread with dinner as I figured it could not hurt me much. I am back to feeling nauseus as well as light headed.
Our company left a few minutes ago, so I am going to relax a bit then take a long hot bubble bath before going to bed.

    For me, I cannot get on the scale every day - too much fluctuation due to how much water I drank, what I ate, etc. - and I become obsessed with this .4#up or down, or whatever the number may be. If it's a loss I think, "oh goodie", then eating correctly, the next morning may be up that .54 - It can really become an obsession with the scale. I now weigh myself once or twice at most a week - it's much much better for me. Might be something to think about. For instance, if I eat ham because of the salt, it will show a + in the weight, etc. There is just too much fluctuation in our bodies which have nothing to do with the fat that is there... don't be too hard on yourself..

    It is so hard to not let those scale numbers get the better of us. Hang in there, we're all here for you!
