And that alone is awful. But aside from all these issues...not worth getting into... I got back on Spark on Monday and again am already feeling better. Of course the work week is always so much easier. I pack it, I bring it and I eat it... pretty well stay on track. Of course in the office you do have all the well meaning people wanting to share their goodies. Today I was taking my lunch to the re... Fri, 9 Jan 2009 08:56:29 EST Me and My Treadmill Well...where to begin. I was up to walking 60-70 minutes on a treadmill everyday (or almost), then I came down with pneumonia back in February. I can't believe how much strength that sucked out of me. I tried a couple of times to get back on that treadmill and it seemed I could not breathe. I am mostly frustrated that I let that illness allow me to give up. I gave up on spark, logging weight, got back up to 157 and figured just don't log it. I was down to 144. So finally when I hit 149... Thu, 26 Jun 2008 10:11:58 EST Without any thought Well, I said I would get back on track this week, so I have been packing my lunch. It becomes almost mechanical, but this morning I packed it and I got to work and threw it in the fridge, then here I sit at lunch time eating and I looked at what I had and I was so proud of myself. I had a perfectly balanced meal covering all my food groups! <BR> <BR> Last night we had hamburgers, we seldom eat them but my hubby loves them, so this time I made them smaller and thinner, and made a full plat... Thu, 29 May 2008 12:34:24 EST Trying to get back on track Well, that bout of pneumonia took a lot out of me, honestly I still can't walk the distance or speed on my treadmill that I was up to before I got sick. It really bummed me out and I noticed I gave up on all of it. I have decided this little pity party I have been throwing for myself, is not excuse to give up on me! So as of today (you have to start somewhere), I am back to being accountable to myself. It is "my" time of year anyway, I love the warm weather and the sunshine, and being ab... Wed, 28 May 2008 10:49:27 EST Well I was right! I went to my family doctor, he requested my records from the hospital and then tells me I have pneumonia. Where I am frustrated is the ER doctor told me my lungs were clear, but my doctor was holding the report from the radiologist from their hospital and it says I have pneumonia. So I went from Friday to Monday with no antibiotics because they missed it again. This is the second time a radiologist found pneumonia in my lung and an ER doctor missed it. <BR> <BR> Oh well, got my antibioti... Tue, 26 Feb 2008 09:57:13 EST Trying to Recover Wow... feel like a big set back. I guess it was Tuesday or Wednesday I noticed I had to set my speed back on my treadmill to get my 65-70 minute walk in, then the next night way...way back, I didn't think I would make it. Thursday at work we went to White Castle for lunch, I haven't been eating bad at all, so when I got indigestion really bad, I figured it was the food and well deserved. (But I didn't get my all time favorite of sweet tea, instead I opted for water and I only got to White ... Mon, 25 Feb 2008 09:15:30 EST Weekends are tough! Well, this weekend we had a meeting in Columus, it was at the Spaghetti Warehouse, the menu seemed difficult, but I got a Chicken Breast Sandwich, grilled vegetables in place of the fries and a salad. They plop these little loaves of bread in front of you... I could have easily asked them not to, but since there were others at our table, I wasn't able to make that request. <BR> <BR> So the guy starts the meeting before the servers could get your order, they kept coming up the steps, saw he ...
