Happy New YEAR!

Saturday, January 05, 2013

2012 was a doozy!

I am starting this year with hope.

I gained 20 pounds this past year, after developing arthritis in my right hip, getting a confirmation of Charcot Marie Tooth disease, finding out one of my best friends has stage 4 lung cancer , breaking up with my boy friend . Then helped raise $$$$ for my friend'S Cancer treatment , now she finally has insurance and she is doing well , is going through chemo every 3 weeks , is still teaching her spin classes. I am being treated for depression with St. John's Wort, had to increase my seizure medication because I started seizing again, had to have a sleep study last week since I might have a REM disorder ( I am exhausted after sleeping all night , and I am finding I wake up moving while I am dreaming ) , I had to have MRIs a couple of weeks ago of my head and neck after my doctor found my right arm and leg were suddenly weaker . I think it is the CMT and not a sudden injury or stroke. This week I started back at the gym and started walking more for exercise again. I am very sore and have been the last two days. Today I volunteered at a 5k race and then went to get organic produce at a organic farm with my friend Barbara , was wonderful. I am utilizing one of my team mates from one of my spark teams to help keep me accountable with my water , food and exercise daily.
I have to get this weight off again!
