So it's not January 1st, I can 't wait until January 1st. Why should I wait to take care of myself? <BR> I'm probably the heaviest I've ever bee now at 185ish lbs. The kids broke my scale so that will be one of my big purchases starting out. <BR> <BR> How do I plan to do it? I plan on starting to watch my portions and taking a walk with he kids everyday. Rain or shine, we'll gear up and go, walk in a mall if we have to. <BR> <BR> I need to get healthy for my peace of mind, I would lvoe to l... Sun, 6 May 2012 13:35:16 EST Sick and Tiered I injured my knee a week ago. How? Walking through my kitchen, I didn't bump it, didn't do anything and it just suddenly gave out! OW! It was sore all day, stiff the next, stiff and painful the next day after, then it seized! I went to the hospital, wasted 7 hours on a Saturday only to have the doctor's tell me nothing was wrong with my knee - just take Advil and here's a tensor bandage if that makes you feel better. <BR> WTF? That's it? <BR> No, you have a severe bladder infection. <BR> I ... Tue, 27 Jan 2009 11:05:52 EST Starting Spark Bootcamp! I'm 155lbs today, waist 38.5, hips 41, neck 13.5 <BR> I did wake up extremely puffy (water retention) and weighed before my movement. <BR> I did the 10 minutes from the 4th this morning and will do the workout from today this afternoon after my errands! Mon, 5 Jan 2009 12:54:14 EST The power of having a dream and a vision This is my journal entry from today: <BR> <BR> Sometimes a dream must be just that, a dream, because of financial or other constraints. If I didn't have those constraints, what are my dreams? I'm not sure anymore. I thought a promising career and a healthy family, but now the career is feeling less important. My heart rejoices in my children and my creativity. It is sad that we cannot be paid to be and be our dreams... <BR> <BR> <img src=" Thu, 18 Dec 2008 23:34:00 EST TMI? I have had a run-in with the devil (chocolates and sweets) this week. I did however get a few walks in this week, but I never did start that C25K thing. Today was a wonderful -36 degC! I so look forward to this cold weather running XP <BR> Mr. Moo is doing wonderful, he is now on a new medication and WHAT A CHANGE! Not the same boy and he's very happy. I don't remember him ever being like this, it's an encouraging change! Not to mention the speed in which all of his testing is being done! AMA... Sun, 14 Dec 2008 22:11:13 EST Snow Day I am so out of whack. I was supposed to start the Couch to 5k program this week and I couldn't get myself out of the door. I did manage to do my strength training exercises I had planned for this week, but anything outdoors is not happening! I can't afford, nor do I have the space for, a treadmill. So my options are limited. <BR> So I'm taking a snow day today, I plan on heading out just to go outside and show myself it's not so bad *really!* and hopefully start up this next week. <BR> <img ...
