A good choir practice tonight ... we are almost ready for the new season. 3. Cooked a good meal for tonight. Trying to stop the hit and miss. 4. ... Read more

  • MADE 10484 STEPS TODAY

    8/23/2016 11:38:14 PM, by JOANN25

    I decided last night to do better planning on my meals and my activities. No. 1: Made menu for 7 days; grocery shopped today to include ingredients for these planned meals. (walking through Walmart several times doing grocery shopping. Only went over budget by $41. Will have to work on that. M... Read more

  • UP AND DOWN!

    8/19/2016 10:56:24 PM, by JOANN25

    This has been a week where I have had good days and bad days. My exercise has been down for the most part. I am still eating healthy and under my apportioned calories. I contribute this partly to being depressed. I am trying to bring myself out of it but sometimes it is just really hard. Most o... Read more

    i've got to learn how to deal with ebbs and flows of life unexpected. as long as my scheduled runs along as planned, i do well with eating and exercise. results are slow, but going in the right direction. i'm thinking the slow going is bc my system is so accustomed to fad and yoyo dieting. i think...

  • YEA FOR ME....OVER 10000 STEPS TODAY

    8/10/2016 11:12:59 PM, by JOANN25

    My goal used to be 10000 steps per day. I missed more than I hit the goal and finally moved it back to 7500. Today I had a really busy day where I was moving around a lot. I was surprised about 5:00 to see my fitbit had tracked over 8,000 steps. By posting time I was at 10,893. Feel... Read more

  • Day 6

    8/6/2016 5:39:58 PM, by GEAUXN

    Thanks to SP and tracking all of my food and exercise, I lost 7.6 lbs after my first week in TOPS! I know that most of week 1 lose is water weight. I have replaced all the diet soda I was drinking with water. That was most of what I used to drink. DH is upset because I had told my daughter... Read more

  • Day 5

    8/5/2016 9:56:40 AM, by GEAUXN

    Sleep issues are very common with TBI survivors. Last night was no exceptions. I finally got up after midnight and took 2 Tylenol. My hip was giving me fits. I really needed that cortisone shot today too! Doctor's office still has not called me back for a reschedule. With hardly any sleep,... Read more

  • Day 4

    8/4/2016 9:35:13 PM, by GEAUXN

    I'm purely tired and exhausted tonight. My daughter picked me up from the park & ride after work and we went to Six Flags. It was so hot. Our temps are supposed to be at 100 every day for the next week with no chance of rain. We filled my cup with ice water while we were there. I wasn't even tem... Read more

  • Day 3

    8/3/2016 4:43:04 PM, by GEAUXN

    I think that I have managed to turn a bad day around. I didn't sleep very well last night. Sleep problems are common with all TBI survivors. I thought I hit the snooze alarm off on my phone, but I actually shut the alarm off. I woke up right before I had to leave to catch my bus for work....not ... Read more
