The Day After The First Day
So yesterday was my first day back to the gym, working out with my old trainer Luke and another old friend, Paul. Wow, just being in the gym again gave me the confidence I need to do this. The last time I was with Luke, I lost over 40 pounds and... Read more
Just a little short blog today.
I'm wondering why I can lose weight when not exercising, more so than when I do? My diet is pretty much the same either way and it's pretty confusing to me to say the least. I've been stuck at this weight for a ... Read more
Back to Spark!
Well, not really, I haven't 'left" I've just been tracking on my phone app. But, my husband got me a Fitbit for Christmas (after me telling him to get it!). So, I just found out that if I track online that my food with be synced to the Fitbit ap... Read more
Well, it's been 6 months since my husband was diagnosed with lupus. It's been an up and down 6 months for sure! Since he got his meds regulated, it hasn't been too bad. He lost about 50 pounds in the couple of months before they figured out what... Read more
Life with Lupus - The Beginning
Dizziness can be such a crippling thing. My husband found that out last February when he started feeling a little under the weather. He went to see our family doctor, who gave him meds for his stomach and was told that if he wasn't feeling bette... Read more
Life with Lupus- Part 1, The Diagnosis
Well after two hellacious months with my husband being sick and hospitalized twice, they've finally figured out he has lupus. Thanks to me. Yes, thanks to me. I've been asking him to talk to the doctors about lupus being a possibility and he alw... Read more
I was talking to my old trainer yesterday and I keep coming back to something he said. I was asking him about using balls to train and he told me I should come back to his gym, there's a hip hop class (def not me!) and a fitness class for streng... Read more
So where do I go to find it?
Did a few updates on my page, haven't been on here regularly for a long time now. I track my food, water and exercise on my phone, so easy. But I'm finding that it's a habit, not something I'm actually thinking... Read more
Update on the Carbs/Health
Ugh! I had my bloodwork done again and this time most of the things they were worried about are getting better. I wish someone would have listened to me when I told them about the steroid injections. My thyroid levels are better, but the doctor ... Read more
Bad News Made Good!
I had my bloodwork done last month, and followed up with my family doctor. He tells me my thyroid levels are down, meaning my meds need increased. I had just told my husband the same thing a couple weeks before that I thought my thyroid was mess... Read more
Oh No, NOT Again!
I feel like all I do is complain when I post a blog! I've been working out pretty consistently, 2-3 times a week at the gym with my trainer, and 2-3 times a week at home on the treadmill. This isn't just putting in time, it's me pushing myself t... Read more
Just another question for anyone who knows. I've started back at the gym, working my butt off, lose a pound, gain 2, gain 1. Admittedly, my eating is not in line with where I want to be, but still trying to make working out a habit, instead of a... Read more
Starting Over...........Again :)
August 23rd seems like a long time ago, but it's only been a little over two months. That is the day I had the surgery that gave me back my life. If you go back and read my previous blogs, you'll see why. I really don't want to get into the deta... Read more
Well, I ended up having surgery on August 23rd. It was pretty painless, nothing near what I expected. I took percocet for two days then couldn't stand how it was making me feel, so I quit. The pain is tolerable so no more pills. The surgeon said... Read more
Hitting the Fan and Trying to Get Through It All...................
Just a disclaimer: this contains what some people would say is "too much information" sorry if any of it is offensive, but I was hoping to hear from someone who has this same embarrassing problem :(
Ha! My last blog was before the sh** hit ... Read more
