I am okay!
Thursday, March 28, 2013
So I went to the doctor yesterday because since the meningitis I have being having ringing in my ears, headaches and last week I started smelling and tasting gasoline. I got a head ache last Friday at work and stayed in the bed until Saturday evening and the last of gasoline went away. When I went to the neurologist he said that I have a rare syndrome of reoccurring meningitis and that I will make a full recovery however it may take my ears another month to get back to normal. The gasoline taste was coming from my sinus'. They are having a tough time this year because the weather can't decide what season it wants to be. So I am on headache meds for the allergies and hopefully all will be well again. For the past couple weeks I have been stress snacking because I thought I had neuro damage to my brain. Things like will I even know my kids in three years when it hits me again crossed my mind. I was thinking I can not go through this again and not have permanent brain damage. My doctor assured me yesterday that I would be okay and I will survive like I have the past 6 times.
So now back to business. No more I feel sorry for myself snacking and thank goodness all of the devil girl scout cookies are out of my house. YAHHH! Those girl scouts need to add horns to their uniform because they are dealing the devils work. ha ha! Like drugs to an addict those cookies are the devil to fat people everywhere. And whoever came up with those delicious Savannah smiles needs to be smacked for me. ha ha
So last night I did another 35 minutes on the elliptical then this morning I did 35 minutes on the bike and 25 minutes of zumba. It will not undo the damage my I feel sorry for myself snacking I did but hopefully I will come close to even this Friday and not gain. Though I have a feeling the scale will not be my friend this week. I will however not stress because I have been doing alot of strength training. I will take my measurements on Sunday morning and see if I lost any more inches. My goal was to try and lose a total of 5 inches by Easter. Right now I am at 4 inches. Sunday will be 8 weeks so 5 inches in 8 weeks would be great. That would be down 10 inches in 4 months and 30 inches in a year. I would love for at least 15 of those inches to come off my rear. ha ha
So it is back to business and my goal will be to be down to 188 by April 3rd the day before my mini spring vacation. Though I plan to do alot of running around at the Amusement park, putt putting, hiking, fishing, etc. , we will be eating out at a couple buffets while out of town. One is a seafood buffet so I can eat a little healthy there as long as I try to stick with the seafood and veggies and avoid the dessert buffet. The other buffet is Chinese (my husbands favorite place in Williamsburg) so I will try and avoid the rice, stick with the soup, and make healthy choices. Luckily this buffet is not one of my favorites so I should be able to stay on track. I am sure 9 hours of walking around Busch Gardens should help.
