Going it alone

Friday, April 20, 2012

Well--here I am--somewhere I never expected to be--on my own. I was lucky to find a nice apartment and am finally getting things set up--including getting my internet connection back! The great thing about this change is that I am close to the wellness center I used to drive 40 miles to use. So--two days straight now--back on my favorite machine. I am dealing with a foot ulcer right now, so this is the only way I can get in my aerobics. I am also on the second floor--and for the first time yesterday--the stairs were a little easier for me. I am working on getting back to tracking all my food, but at least I have been eating healthier for the most part. I have been enjoying some great smoothies that I whip up in the blender--a scoop of Jillian's whey protein, a half cup of Greek yogurt, a half-cup to cup of fruit. This will sustain me through the morning. I have lost a little over 7 lbs in the past three weeks--my first loss in a long time. So--1 day at a time I am getting back on track.

    Gary, congratulations with the 7 lb. weight loss the past three weeks. Keep patting yourself on the back for the positives, and I am sure more will follow. I am glad you found a nice apartment you like and how wonderful it is closer to the wellness center! That is great! Take care of that foot ulcer.. I hope it heals well and fast for you. One day at a time, you will get stronger and stronger. I know you can do it. emoticon emoticon

    There are a lot of positives on youre side right now you will get a momentum going and you will get stronger each day. I have found that at times i am more motivated when i live on my own because it motivates me to get out more to do activities and such. I loved all the pictures of the beautifull foods you used to cook maybie we will be privy to that again.

    I'm glad that you are taking better care of yourself. I'm glad that things are working out for you, apartment-wise.

    Just remember to give yourself some slack and keep taking baby steps. Take it one day at a time and remember, we're still here!
