My first journal entry!

Sunday, May 26, 2013

I signed up for Spark People last week but then I got sick which lead to asthma so now I am waiting for my lungs to get strong enough to handle exercise. For about three weeks prior to getting sick, I was exercising on a consistent basis. Not only did I physically feel better but it also has made me feel emotionally and spiritually stronger.

I hate being on prednisone. It messes with your appetite, sleeping and personality but I have to deal with it for now because it helps me to breathe. I want to blame prednisone for my uncontrolled eating but I shouldn't. Yesterday, I ate everything and never felt full. Today, I still feel hungry but I know I'm not going to feel full so I am going to plan to eat something every couple of hours. I will also try to keep myself busy ~ sew skirt and paint one bathroom cabinet.

My goal is to start walking again on Tuesday.

    I hope you are feeling back to 100% real soon! Just remember to be gentle with yourself while your lungs recover. emoticon

    Prednisone is Evil! (not really, but I personally hate it when I get sick enough to need it) That said hang in there and hopefully you can start tapering. It doesn't help that the vog has been particularly bad for the last couple of months.

    Hang in there! It does get better over time. Remember to take this emoticon journey one day at a time.
