I'm not feeling very creative today... hence the title!
I'm finally off of prednisone, so I am hoping that I can get my diet and exercise back under control soon! As I have tapered off the prednisone, I have been working hard to keep symptoms under control with increased use of the inhalers. But, I still am wheezing at night, and feeling that large "Lump" in my throat during the day, signifying shortness of breath for me.
I will be returning to Stockton one more time for 3 days. They wanted me to do 4, but I just didn't think it was possible. Additionally, they have not said any more about going to Eureka for a project there, so I'm not saying anything either. My health is too important, and I need to not only get the asthma symptoms under control, but I need to get my strength back and my ability to exercise back as well.
While I have been working away from home, I have found that our eating habits have gone down while I'm home as well, because we are trying to fit too much other stuff into those "home" days and so then we eat out or make poor choices.
I am leaving for Bangladesh on November 1st and then after two weeks in Bangladesh, we are stopping over in Istanbul for 4 days. I'm very excited, and I want to get the most out of it... so I figured that I really need to lose 30# by then. That makes my goal to weight 225 by November 1st!
I will work on my goals, rewards and plan a bit later in the day. But I wanted to get myself accountable as soon as possible.
Have a great day everyone!
