LADYJEZEBEL's SparkPeople Blog LADYJEZEBEL's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Sorry For My Absence I have been going through a lot lately. I have been having troubles with my heart racing for a few years now, and it keeps progressing as time goes on. I cannot even walk a block without having to stop 10 times to catch my breath. My cardiologist is looking at blood clots or coronary heart disease, but until we are for sure he has told me to rest. Plus I was without a computer for about 4 months, so that did not help me with all the groups I belong too. <BR> <BR> <BR> I am still trying to ... Sun, 26 Oct 2014 16:53:05 EST Bought A New Tablet Since I have been absent for a week or so, I have bought me a new tablet. I got it for $70 off of Amazon. I have a confession to make: I am an Amazon junkie :) <BR> <BR> <BR> I am really having issues with food addictions lately. I am wanting to start going more vegan. I am not sure that I can give up meat completely, but want to eat more healthier, and I really feel a vegan diet is the better way to go. I just feel some more spiritual changes coming my way. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> I am mos... Sun, 8 Sep 2013 23:50:36 EST Emotions Lately I have kind of slipped off the bandwagon, but still ended up losing 12 lbs :) <BR> <BR> <BR> The problem is that despite the weight loss I am eating all the wrong foods. I eat when I am emotional. I have had a rough year, having the man I loved walk out on me last October. The relationship had been rocky from the very beginning. When he left, he went to Canada and did not have proper paperwork and is facing deportation. I had so many questions about things, and I wake up with the reality t... Sun, 11 Aug 2013 05:10:35 EST Will Be 43 Tuesday I cannot believe my birthday is here already. But it is and I will be 43. Someone told me the other day that I am still young. My mind agree but my body does not. With all of my health problems it is hard to feel young. I hate hearing from people when I am walking around with my rollator and they ask what is wrong with me. I know they mean well, but how many times should I have to repeat it? <BR> <BR> <BR> Do not get me wrong I love my birthday every year, and I do enjoy being alive. Mon, 1 Jul 2013 06:06:51 EST It Has Been A Few Days Well, I have been to my doctor and I have not lost any weight, but the good news is I did not gain either. So I guess that is something positive. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> I have been busy trying to catch on things that got severely behind when I had no computer for four months. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> Wanted to stop in and say hello. My neuropathy has been acting up in my arm which causes some pain. Fri, 14 Jun 2013 01:56:38 EST A New Day It is one in the morning my time. I tracked my food and exercise yesterday, and trying to track my water intake. Water is not my favorite drink, but I do like a glass of ice water. Once I get my new mini fridge and some ice I can enjoy water again. <BR> <BR> <BR> Tonight I was sitting here thinking about Yoga and Belly Dancing, two activities that I have been wanting to do. Also, the idea of going to the beach in a bathing suit has kind of gave me motivation. <BR> <BR> <BR> It is hard s... Wed, 29 May 2013 03:56:29 EST Doing Good I need to start tracking my food in here. I keep forgetting to enter it. With that being said, I think I have done real well for the past few days. Of course the true test will come when I go grocery shopping. At the end of the month is easy because I am low on food then. <BR> <BR> <BR> A lot of you encouraged me to keep blogging so I will try. I do not always have a lot to say, so some may be extremely short entries. I am sure there will be entries about my progress, too. <BR> <BR> <BR... Tue, 28 May 2013 18:05:12 EST My First Blog Entry :) Okay, I do not think I have ever made a blog entry in any of the three times I signed back up for SP, so this is a first for me. <BR> <BR> <BR> I am working on getting back in to losing weight. I had made it to 170 a few years ago, and gained it all back because I became very ill. I still am, but the weight only aggravates it. <BR> <BR> <BR> I have a cold right now, probably because I am on an immunosuppressive for my autoimmune problems. For those who may not know what autoimmune is, it ... Wed, 22 May 2013 16:08:24 EST
