I've been living in my Sister's Home for 3 weeks as of today.
I've made made many positive changes.
almost everyday= 18days! I like being able to record exercise minutes & see them add up in the Fitness Tracker!
I exercise everyday- I use light weights & I now have a stationary foot leg exercise bicycle bike peddler. I am able to do both at same time- lift weights & bicycle in place. I don't watch much TV, so I watch Coach Nicole fitness videos while I workout with the weights & bike peddler.
My eating has gotten better & I'm more focused on lowering my sodium, protein, potassium & phosphorus intakes. I'm educating myself in hopes of slowing the progression of Renal failure. My diabetes is more controlled. I'm breathing better & have not had an asthma attack in 3 weeks.
I'm eating healthier
& trying to stay within my calorie limitations.
It's not easy because Healthy Choice meals & healthy soups & foods are all loaded with sodium. Thank goodness for the Nutrition Tracker!!! I'm learning fast how much sodium is in processed, canned & frozen foods. I am lucky to have nutritious fruits, veggies, salmon, etc, that my Sister buys & we prepare.
I am able to be on SparkPeople daily because my Sister lets me use her laptop while she's at work. Bless her heart!
I am in clean, breathable living conditions. No dogs, no birds-no pets & no smoking!
I have my own room! A wonderful big bed, a dresser, nite stand , & lamp. My room is decorated with lace doilies, pictures, nic nacs. I love it! I even have a huge desk so I can set up my computer & sewing machine! Being loved & cared about is a serene, peaceful feeling.
I feel so blessed to have a Sister like I do!
I am no longer homeless. I still have a few bad dreams, but I feel safe overall.I wake up feeling alive & thankful for another new day! I still sleep a lot! I am not depressed~ I'm happy!
Having a safe, clean environment is good for me. I look forward to getting healthier & losing more weight!
Next week is my Birthday
& a family get together
! I am so looking forward to the party & my next week of progress.
I also will be going to a new Doctor next week.
All & all-I say progress is good!
Thank you SparkPeople! And All of you in SparkPeople Land!
And most of all~My Little Sister Terry
