I went to the doctor last week for pain in my arm. I was told I was having a tendonitis flare up and a major muscle spasm and was put on a steroid pack and muscle relaxers. It all went down hill from there. I ended up with strept throat and have been on my couch now for at least a week. I am up and moving today hoping to feel better. I need to feel better so that I can get more motivated. So I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. Thu, 11 Oct 2012 10:43:09 EST Aches, Pains, and kids http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5086165 It has been a rough week. I have had another tendentious flare up this week and have been in quiet a bit of pain. Doctors have me on steroids which make me want to eat and make me feel horrible. The kids are home for fall break and that is a challenge in and of itself. I find it very hard to stay on track when they are here all day. I haven't done any exercise this week because I have been in so much pain hopefully when the affects of the medication wear off I can get back on track. Thu, 4 Oct 2012 07:14:34 EST The power of prayer and positive thinking http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5072463 Did you know it is hard to be negative if you surround yourself with positive things. That is pretty hard in the world we live in today. I was in a slump last week I didn't feel well and all I did was sleep. My children and my husband got on my nerves and I was pretty much useless to everyone around me. I was negative about myself and life in general. On Friday I started praying for God to help me understand why I was in such a place. I attended a concert of one of my favorite Christian artis... Mon, 24 Sep 2012 07:29:42 EST Down and Out http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5066690 This week has been another non motivated week. I don't know what is going on but all I want to do is sleep I can't seem to shake this. I am not eating well and I have not done any exercise. It doesn't help that there is something going on every night and that makes it hard to have a decent meal. I have to get out of this funk and get back on track. Wed, 19 Sep 2012 16:48:24 EST Teenagers!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5058994 Ugh I have another day of not being motivated and I truly think it is because since we went on our mini vacation I got out of my routine and I am having a difficult time getting back in. Today was gonna be the day but I have a teenager that decided to act out this morning and threw my whole day and plan off track. I know it is an excuse but I hate to have plans just to have them wrecked by my kids. It is as if they are out to get me (although I know they are not). Sorry had to vent this morni... Fri, 14 Sep 2012 11:29:14 EST Motivation Where Are You???????? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5057479 I have been doing Weight Watchers for about two and a half months and I was doing so good. I even got my husband on board and we were doing it together. Last weekend we took a short vacation and I lost my motivation. I didn't track any food and I just ate because I could. Everything tasted so good. Since being home I have tried really hard to get back in the groove but I am struggling. On Monday while watching The Doctors I discovered this site and decided to give it a try since my WW was abo... Thu, 13 Sep 2012 11:10:46 EST
