(Not) Wide Awake

Sunday, October 28, 2012      0 comments

It's so embarrassing. I want to be awake to talk to people or listen to a meeting but if I sit down and it's even remotely comfortable, I start to fall asleep. I've fallen asleep reading aloud to my kids. I've fallen asleep during my husband'... Read more

I Want to Cry

I went to New Balance and got new shoes. They had me stand on this pressure sensitive pad and could see that my heels are getting the bulk of my weight. I tried on a number of shoes. As soon as I got out of my old ones and into new ones my fe... Read more

New Shoes

Saturday, October 27, 2012      1 comments

I'm wondering if part of my ankle pain is due to my shoes. New Balance didn't have my "favorite" kind of shoe last time I shopped there months ago and I got another style. I'm going back today to buy new shoes. And possibly new inserts too. ... Read more

Oops. I blogged too soon

I totally forgot that the zucchini bread batter that my daughter made up for an order had sugar in it. I licked the spatula before putting it in the dishwasher. I'm not worried about it at all from a caloric standpoint but from a "no sugar cha... Read more

No Sugar, Day 2

Friday, October 26, 2012      2 comments

I find myself looking for a small sugar pick-me-up right before meals when the meal isn't quite ready to go on the table. Today I added to my lunch a pre-sitting down slice of Dave's killer bread with peanut butter. A bit later I ate my salad ... Read more

So Why is Today a Better Day?

Thursday, October 25, 2012      2 comments

Yesterday was a bad pain day - one of those days when searing acid seemed to be coursing through my bones and muscles. I told my husband at night that I was willing to do anything at that moment to make it stop. But the problem is what? ... Read more

Everyone is so busy telling me what to do to lose weight

Wednesday, October 24, 2012      6 comments

One lady constantly buttonholes me at church to tell me about the Eat to Live diet. I've read the book and gone to the website. I've even used some of the recipes. But I'm not prepared to go all the way with the diet. Other people tell... Read more

Breaking in a new instructor

Tuesday, October 23, 2012      1 comments

We got a new kickboxing instructor last night. I'm not totally sure what to think. She's a huge improvement over the two subs we had. They were dangerous in their lack of knowledge. This instructor obviously has had fitness training. Her wa... Read more

What are you doing for your health/weight loss today?

Monday, October 22, 2012      2 comments

I want to be more proactive about life. So I'm planning my day and looking at what I can do right now for my health and weight loss. Breakfast - make a green smoothie. We have this as part of our routine - it's just been a bit more miss t... Read more

No Pain Tonight?

Sunday, October 21, 2012      2 comments

I went out with friends from my high school days tonight. Very old friends since high school was over 30 years ago! We had a good time talking and eating at a Chinese noodle and dumpling restaurant. Afterward, one of my best friends and I did... Read more

Cautiously Optimistic

Saturday, October 20, 2012      3 comments

Tonight at Zumba I was jumping and dancing with ease. I worked hard and am tired out now. But I didn't have the intense pain that I've had for the last month. I think the new prescription of potassium must be helping. I did notice that I hav... Read more

Disappointed in Myself

Friday, October 19, 2012      6 comments

I was on a gluten free diet for a week. I went off of it yesterday. I don't regret going off of it. But I am disappointed in myself. I was already eating low carb because I am pre-diabetic and have to really careful about carbs. But going o... Read more

I went to the doctor today as a follow-up to being in the ER with chest pain over the weekend. He said that my potassium was borderline low and could have contributed to the problem. Since I"m already on diuretics, which can cause you to lose ... Read more

I'm a Gluten Free Drop-out

Wednesday, October 17, 2012      0 comments

I went back on gluten today. I was off of it for 1 week. It was too stressful trying to figure out how to be off of it when we were out and about. I have more than enough stress in my life and wasn't convinced that I needed to be gf anyway. Plus... Read more

And the crises continue

Went to the ER last night. My bp has been all over the place despite taking my prescribed medicine. Yesterday after doing some light cleaning I was having chest pain and my lips were numb and tingly. My heart and kidneys are working perfectly... Read more
