A friendly competition

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

My boyfriend decided he wants to lose 20lbs. He's not the most self motivated person so I challenged him to a competition to lose 20 lbs in 4 months with me we haven't decided what the wager is just yet but it should help both of us since I'm under a lot of stress and my weight loss has stalled. He needs my help too since he said he knows nothing about eating healthy so I said we should get together cook and meal plan I'm excited but I hope that he sticks with it I think we will be more successful together. Who knows I may even get him on Spark.

In other news they finally closed my mom's chest today and may be taking her off ventilation either Tuesday or Wednesday. Talked to her nurse tonight and they said everything was going pretty well. Its hard to be three hours away but the difficult part is yet to come so if my dad and I can work now it will be better in the long run. We have been through a lot as a family and we will get through this together. So for now I just have to focus on taking care of myself and hopefully help my boyfriend take better care of himself.

    It's always great to have somebody close in the same boat as you. You can help each other out : )
I do hope your Mom is doing better. Sounds like things are progressing in the right direction. She's in our prayers.

Trying to keep fitness in the front seat

Friday, May 08, 2009

For all that life throws at us (see previous blogs) sometimes it is hard to keep our own health and fitness in the front seat but I'm sure going to do my best now that we have weathered the first part of the storm. Tomorrow morning I have an appointment with my walking partner. I have the goal of getting my sleep back to normal as normal as it gets anyway. I also plan to get my diet back to normal (after this giant bowl of Ramen noodles that is no time to shop today). As for my Mom things are going well although they haven't closed her chest yet, they are still wanting to get more fluid off of her. Once that happens though we are on a long journey as a family to get her to a "normal" state of life. I think it will make us all better, cleaner, and healthier.

Transplant Update

Tuesday, May 05, 2009

The new heart has been successfully put in and seems to be doing well just checked in on Mom a little bit ago she is alert and knows that her new heart is in. They still haven't closed the chest due to bleeding from blood thinners. they will most likely be doing that some time today. So far all is going well

New Lease on Life Heart Transplant

Tuesday, May 05, 2009

Today 5/4, I'm writing this at midnight still waiting for the good news. My Mom went in at 630pm for her heart transplant. When she finally makes it out of surgery it will be a long road to keep her healthy but she will have a working heart and will be able to live a more normal life although still restricted by medicines and the need to keep fairly germ free, she will have a new lease on life. Right now I can't thank the donor or their family enough, I may never get to thank them but I am going to send this out in to cyberspace thank you, thank you a thousand times over for the opportunity to have my mom get her life back to a more normal state.

    Wonderful, and I'm sure the good news will be very soon. You, your family and especially your mother are in my prayers, and I'm sure that the donors family has you all in their prayers as well. Keep us all posted on the progress and as soon as you hear something. God bless you all, and yes, especially the donors family.

Physical

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

The physical went well blood pressure was good and everything else went well I think it was my best physical to date although I know I'll get it back and it will say I am overweight but hey I know that and I am making a lot of progress and tomorrow my walking partner and I are going to add some jogging to our program.
Other good news I finally got my laundry done after 3 weeks (I've been working a lot). I am excited to try some jogging I think I will do better if I am jogging with someone.

    Physicals are so much fun. Too bad they don't always show the progress that we've made throughout the year. Keep up the good work. Hopefully the jogging goes well for you!
