Stay off the foot! Well as you can imagine that is not going to go over very well with teenagers in the house.However I did get them to clean their bathroom last night. Since I am not supposed to flex my foot so I don't pull out the stitches I am kind of in a pickle. I was walking every day to get the mail and just around the house but now I can't. About the only... Tue, 4 Nov 2014 20:00:01 EST back at the dr http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5810214 I got up this morning and had infection in my foot again! So went back to see my dr and I have 5 stitches now. Still draining and I am not supposed to do any walking or climbing or nothing! otherwise I end up back in hospital. Right now I am pretty much depressed and giving up. I really don't know how much longer I can put up with this as I am not a patient person at all. Thank goodness for medicine because right now that's the only thing keeping me sane. <em>46</em> Mon, 3 Nov 2014 19:12:04 EST Feeling Better http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5809607 today I finally feel a bit better other than cold. I made chili yesterday and we have been eating that for 2 days. I also made homemade bread. Things are really tight with me not being able to work and I have basically cut out anything that I can make homemade. I went grocery shopping yesterday and just bought a few essentials not much. The first thing the kids asked for was pop and pizza, which I bought neither of. They got kool-aid and chili LOL. So needless to say they aren't happy with me... Sun, 2 Nov 2014 21:53:46 EST trying to find motivation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5808422 Did you ever wake up and say I don't want to do anything today! Well that was my day yesterday. I didn't feel good and all I did was sleep. I would get up then go back to bed. I didn't even get out of my pajamas. <BR> I have no idea what I ate or really drank it was like I was in a fog. But the good thing was I didn't drink any alcohol so maybe the week isn't a total loss for me. I guess I will find out when I get on the scale in the morning. Which incidentally will be in about 5 hours. It ... Fri, 31 Oct 2014 23:18:14 EST White bread vs. Wheat bread http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5805721 As you all may know I recently began living with picky teenagers. The last couple of weeks I <em>20</em> have been buying my wheat bread and white bread for them. Surprisingly My bread is gone and theirs isn't. So If I tell them they can't eat it because it is mine, guess what! When I am gone they are eating it! My plan is to eventually phase out white bread all together. I am going to start bringing home wheat rolls next week when I do my grocery shopping and let's see what happens. Mon, 27 Oct 2014 13:27:04 EST Grocery Shopping! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5805141 As I have been checking out other people's blogs and collecting information I found a shopping template on SparkPeople. So I downloaded it and planned my recipes for this week with what I currently have and went through the Spark Cook Book again to get ideas on what I need. so I made my list and I am going to use 1/3 of our grocery budget spending money on me and the rest on what they think they have to have. <BR> Hopefully, the other adults in my house will start looking at the things I ma... Sun, 26 Oct 2014 16:06:29 EST Salt is the enemy. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5804207 Ok I have been trying and failing to get my salt intake down within normal range. It is a lot harder than it looks for me. I am living with teenagers now and their favorite foods are hot dogs, pizza and everything fried. <BR> Well it hasn't gone so well for my diet. I never had this problem when I was single but now that I am living with several people we have had to make some adjustments. <BR> I tried out a new recipe on them tonight and they liked it except it didn't have enough salt in... Fri, 24 Oct 2014 21:37:05 EST I may have a job! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5803085 I just found out the job interview I had before I got sick is still waiting for me. Which has improved my mood and self-esteem tremendously. I have to re-apply as soon as I get well and I will be working shortly after. Thank you Jesus! I have been off work since September. So I am looking forward to working again. <em>224</em> Wed, 22 Oct 2014 23:05:44 EST Giving thanks http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5801676 I recently found out that I will be able to get a vehicle soon since mine was totalled. Also talked to doctors and my foot should be back to normal in 2 weeks. Then maybe I can start really getting on track with workouts. It has been very boring for me not able to do anything. But I keep giving thanks because things could have been worse. Mon, 20 Oct 2014 17:57:20 EST Overboard! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5801005 I went way over on my calories last night but it was my fault. I drank some beer and then got the munchies. I had been sick for so long that I was feeling sorry for myself. Got <em>198</em> ta get back on track today. detoxing and all that good stuff, Sun, 19 Oct 2014 17:44:21 EST Weigh in! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5800294 I weighed myself this morning and I lost almost 10 pounds! Just by watching my food and sodium. I know I won't keep losing it that fast but it sure does feel nice. <em>244</em> <em>9</em> <em>334</em> Sat, 18 Oct 2014 10:14:00 EST Dr.Checkup healing up http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5800023 Saw the dr today and my foot is healing good. I still am on antibiotics and still have a hole in my foot but no infection. I did a few lunges today trying to excersise but still hurts. Ended up taking a pain pill and taking a nap. At least if I am sleeping I am not eating. LOL <BR> I went over on my sodium but not to bad. I have been trying really hard to keep it under 2300 but it is harder than it looks for me. I guess if I keep trying I might find a combination that works for me. <em>52... Fri, 17 Oct 2014 19:55:25 EST A better day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5799240 Hello everyone, today is a better day. I kept within my goals yesterday and did school work. My friend out of the hospital now and hope to be ok. <BR> As far as my foot it has been hurting a lot. I really can't excersice a whole lot because of it. But I do little things. I am stretching the muscles I can and moving when I can so i guess that's something at least. Hopefully by Saturday when I weigh myself I might have lost something. Will wait and see. Thu, 16 Oct 2014 10:52:38 EST trying to find the sunshine in my rainy day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5798789 I only got 1 1/2 hours of sleep last night from me being stressed out, my foot hurts real bad from being on it all day yeasterday and I am doing everything I can to stay positive. I found out it was county officers who hit my car so they have insurance. I just wait for report and file. Go from there! Now I am going to start my roast that I was going to cook yesterday and do some homework. <em>198</em> Wed, 15 Oct 2014 14:57:05 EST not a good day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5798325 I started my day out good and then I got a phone call.I let my friend borrow my car to go look for a job and he was in an accident. My car is totalled and they flew him to a bigger hospital. He is ok now but my food choices went out the window. Tomorrow will be a better day. It wasn't his fault so now I wait and see if insurance will get me a car or not. Have to wait and see I guess. <em>46</em> Tue, 14 Oct 2014 21:38:02 EST menu's planned http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5797130 I announced to my friends that I was changing my lifestyle and I spent several hours figuring out what I could eat and couldn't eat. All in all not to bad. I have meals planned for 3 days. I incorporated my stuff into theirs. They don' quite know it yet but thy are going to be eating a little healthier too. <BR> on a good note, i went back to college to get a degree in administrative medical assistant. i have 1 class and 2 weeks left of another one. I get my diploma on Dec 7th. I made the De... Sun, 12 Oct 2014 23:30:17 EST my first goal http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5796502 While I was up last night not sleeping, thinking and dealing with my pain I decided my first 2 goals are going to be this. <BR> 1.get my sodium level where it needs to be. I found I am eating way to much in that department. <BR> 2.get my calories under control. I have been looking at articles and I am going to do my best to stay on a heart healthy diet. <BR> So tomorrow I am looking up recipes and going from there. Sat, 11 Oct 2014 21:01:45 EST hello everyone! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5796149 I had a slight meltdown and sort of left the planet.

I left my family and close friends behind to start my new adventure. <BR> I moved from Iowa to Kentucky. I have had friends here for a while and decided to move. <BR> Well it didn...

Can't wait to get my rollerskates out on the path and go swimming. I have a smart phone now and as soon as I figure out how to work the thing with the Sparkpeople sight I will be able to keep on track much better. WooHoo. I did manage to lose 2 pounds last week. Not bad for not being consistent. <em>30</em> Wed, 3 Jul 2013 05:26:25 EST getting motivated http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5364859 I got my roller skates today! woohoo!

I am so excited. Also bought a Food Saver this weekend and I love it. I can pre-portion my food so I can grab and go. Helps when I work nights and get up late.

Another week or so and the outside will be completed then I can start tearing up the inside. Can't wait to get it done. my townspeople kept driving by and looking. Apparently they have never seen a woman on a ladder with a power drill in her hand. LOL Wait till they see me on skates. It will be fun <em>244</em> Sun, 19 May 2013 18:28:38 EST Got bronchitis http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5357573 ugh! got up for work Monday night and was sick. Went to Er and got medicine, of course I was hungry and nothing sounded good so I stopped at Caseys and bought a pizza. but i got taco so at least it had vegetables and beans on it. haven't been able to do much else these last few days but I will get back to excersizing as soon as I can.next week I order my roller skates. woohoo! let's see if I can still do that Wed, 15 May 2013 15:00:02 EST getting spring fever! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5354694 I bought a camper that is very old and my dad and I are fixing it up. I plan on living at the campground 20 miles from my house this summer. So I have been having fun getting it ready and buying stuff that I will need for it. The best part is I can swim anytime I want and it has a bike trail that goes all the way around the lake. therefore I should get plenty of excersize this summer between swimming and bike riding and I am going to rollerskate again. But don't worry, when I buy the skates ... Mon, 13 May 2013 04:55:35 EST Digging out my excersize equipment! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5350892 Since I am alone now I decided to move my bike and hook up my DVD player out in the living room. So now I have no more excuses to NOT excersize. Before I couldn't make too much noise but it doesn't matter anymore. I can do what I want! I am kind of liking that. <em>244</em> Getting ready for the summer, bought a cheap camper and plan on living at the lake in July and August. So I can swim and bike, even thinking about buying some roller skates. Used to love doing that. Just because I am ove...

I haven't been on the sight for quite a long time, you see my husband took a serious turn for the worse and he passed away in March. I finalized everything this past week and I can move on with my life. It was a long hard struggle but I will be ok. I have found out these last few weeks that I have lots of time on my hands and I am going to start taking care of me. I plan on camping and swimming this summer along with doing some sight ... Sun, 5 May 2013 20:30:37 EST Walking the dog http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4984264 With my crazy shedule this past week I haven't been able to do much for excersize other than walk my dad's dog. So I guess it's a god thing I have to do this for now otherwise I probably wouldn't get anything accomplished. i have to do this until August then he can resume the dog walking. Then I can ride my bike again. Yeah! Because I only have about 30 minutes for me in the morning and then it's hurry up and get stuff done for the day and then sleep. At least in this hot weather we have been...

Haven't had the energy to do much of anything last week I had bronchitis due to the weather and still lingering, but I did go camping yesterday and went swimming for 4 hours. that felt good. I only got 1 night off this week for the Fourth, back at it and working saturday too. But if it isn't raining will go back to the lake and camp for 1 more night. yeah! Hope it isn't because I really like camping and swimming. Woo Hoo! will weig...

I had a good one with mine and I know there aren't going to be very many more with him. He is going in for surgery this week and he is 75 years old now. Slowing down a lot and can definitely tell age is getting to him. He has outlived his dad by a good 20 years and I am thankful of that everyday. So everyone tell your dad's you love them and give them hugs. Even though I am 43 my dad still calls me his little girl and I am sp... Sun, 17 Jun 2012 17:38:08 EST Getting back in the swing of things http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4926945 Started off my week working 12 hour nights. Ugh! But that is normal anymore. My husband seemed to do ok with everyone checking on him and we go back to drs next week. So right back into the grind. But that's ok. I feel better so I think I definitely needed a vacation. I tried to eat as healthy as I could, we grilled peppers with potatoes and mushrooms to go with our steaks and I bought apples, cantaloupe, and watermelon to keep in the ice chese. And I can honestly say that I never even would ... Thu, 14 Jun 2012 21:48:32 EST I am back from Vacay! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4922792 And I had a great time. I loved Texas, and then I went to the lake close top home rest of week. I reallt needed a vacation. I feel so much better, happier and more calm. Guess I won't wait 5 years before I have another one. <em>246</em> I swam a lot so even though I didn't officially excersize I feel pretty good about it. Now I have to get back on the path to staying true to me. Also, I am going to go to the lake at leaast everyother week to help keep me relaxed. I love swimming and it's fr...

Hot and cold everyother day. But the silver lining in my cloud is my church came and talked to him so we know he believes in God, but he is a... Tue, 29 May 2012 02:44:32 EST I joined the stress busting challenge http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4884019 And all of you who know me, my biggest stressor is my husband right now. Between dr appointments, feeding him, keeping track of his medications, which I might add is a nightmare. He is on 17 different medicines, I have to make sure we have everyone and he knows how to use them. Then I have to let all his specialists know if something goes wrong, not working. etc.. So It is safe to say I spend a minimum of 5 hours a week calling DRs. Then I work nights and guess what! they have to call me back... Wed, 16 May 2012 11:12:42 EST My crazy life http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4882367 Hello to all you sparkies. First I want to say thanks for all your support. It has been a crazy year for me and it is only going to get crazier. How I have managed to lose weight so far is a miracle that even I cannot fathom. As most of you know my husband is not doing well. That is an understement at this point. I had him in the hospital over the weekend and now we have added pneumonia to the mix of his ailments and weaknesses. It just plain sucks. <em>39</em> But I am trying to stay optimi...

Mon, 7 May 2012 22:57:22 EST I lost 2.5 inches off my waist! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4855402 I knew what size I started with and didn't have a tape measure to see where I was at. Well I got one today because I knew my jeans were getting baggy. I am in between sizes right now but then that never really did matter because one company I would wear 1 swize and a different one would be another size. Soo I got brave and checked it out. I have officially lost some inches. WooHoo!!! <em>7</em> <em>244</em> So the hard work, sweat and tears have paid off. Even if the scale didn't move for a ... Fri, 27 Apr 2012 20:13:43 EST Exhausted but doing ok http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4853843 1 more night to go on my 12 hours. Yippee! Also, seeing another dr friday to start my husband on pills to stimulate his appetite. He isn't digesting any food or getting nutrients from them as his pancreas is functioning at 5%. will see what happens. I won a free night at a hotel/casino so I am running away sat night with my good friend and we are going to relax and celebrate our birthdays. My neighbor said he would look in on my husband. I am so looking forward to the jaccuzzi and pool! Hope ...

I broke out from the stress. I am seeing 2 doctors myself now due to husband getting worse.
