Needless to say!
Not been doing so great, foot and finger issues, waiting on unconcerned and inconsiderate doctors offices to call with news.
Waiting.
Putting my life on hold, but no more.
I have seen the light to the right path and I am pulling my tired aching broken and bruised body back up.
I am not going to be afraid anymore.

Today was actually a great day.
I stayed under calories and got my water, veggies and my exercise.
No complaints about this one.

So, I have been trying to stay on a low carb "diet" the last two weeks.
I have been doing so so.
I suppose theres carbs in yogurt??? I dont really take the time to look, I just cant give up my greek honey yogurt.
But I have done ok so far.
Last week, Wednesday I stepped on the scale and was down 5 pounds.
I will weigh again in 2 days, and I hope to see another loss. I wont be overly surprised if I dont because the first big loss like that for me is usually water weight.
I am trying to stay positive and will really just be satisfied not to gain.
It has been a really long time since I really lost weight consistently and I just hope I am finding the right balance of carbs, calories and fat and protein.
The biggest thing I am noticing in my tracking is that I am going way over my calcium, and way low on fiber and vitamin d and some days iron.
It is weird that my vitamin d is so low and my calcium so high.
But Im figuring it out.

I've decided to have a fresh approach and think"its ok to have a bad day" ,don't lose faith, just get back on track and work at it the next day .The more you do it the more it becomes a habit.We're human , and humans can have a bad day , Just don't let a bad day destroy your dreams emoticon

Cheers Cyclone

Feeling the "getting old blues"!!!
I guess it happens to us all. Oh sure I have had your typical aging symptoms, creaky knees, pain and stiffness when I sit too long, so I try not to sit to long.
But this is the change, the change???
Wow, I just came up with a great idea for a blog lol.

Wow weeee I didnt realize how long it had been since I last posted here.
Today I changed my goals a little.
I am aiming for a 16 pound weight loss. I have given myself 2 months, but I am not going to hold a gun to my own head to reach that date.
I am just going to try to lose as much as I can in those weeks and work hard.
I realized 16 is the number I have gained back and in order to prevent it from going any higher, I have to start today.
So, I am.
Really hoping to be over this awful head cold crud itis, whatever it is, soon and be able to increase my workouts a lot more.
Right now the simple act of doing laundry or vacuuming, wears me out, as I cannot get any air in my clogged up passages.
But I am eating healthier, taking my vitamins, drinking my water and getting my sleep.

Decided to post, its been awhile.
Going into the new year with a hopefully, long lasting, positive attitude and outlook.
Just hoping to get to walk as often as I can and find some new hobbies to busy my life.
So that I dont have so much time to dwell on negatives and, not allow anyone to bring me anything in my life but happiness.
I will not make time for their drama and I will not allow them to hurt me or make me feel less than.
Only I can control who I allow in my life.
And this year, it is going to be positive people, who encourage me to stick to my plan and not ask me to drink or eat things I know I dont need to eat.
I need to realize what is important TO ME.
Good health, getting my vitamin d back up, walking, working out, drinking my water and spending as much time outdoors, landscaping the new place, getting sun.
and just enjoying life.
Maybe even just sitting in quiet reflection, alone, on a warm sunny day, by the river or on a walking trail.
2013 was wrought with anger, pain, fear, the unknown, loss of friends, and accusations and clawing my way back up from the depths of fear and despair.
It was also filled with physical pain, breaking my foot in January, to gaining back 16 pounds of the weight I had lost already.
Not getting to walk any for 6 months and then very little after.
But the foot is healed and I am ready to, not so much, GET BACK, but move ahead.
To travel forward with the goal of reaching where I WAS, and exceeding those numbers.
To just maybe, possibly, be happy.
And to focus on my abdominals more, to workout my upper body more.
Life is to be lived, and sometimes there will be set backs, I experienced more than my fair share in 2013.
and I am so more than ready to be done with hurt and loss.
I cant control the weather or Gods plan for me or loved ones.
But I can and will control my reaction to life.
No matter what, 2014 is going to be about gaining back control over ME.
and working to be the best I can be and what else can I do?
What else is there.

Go to YouTube and find Robert Smith on his channel HEALING MAGIC and learn to do EFT Tapping.

EFT Tapping is a psychological technique to reprogram your memories of an event and learn to deal with it.

Robert Smith didn't develop the technique but he teaches it and has so much help. We can't let those from the past take our lives today.

Read the book "SUCCESS THROUGH A POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE" by Napoleon Hill. It came out in 1960 but still applies today.

Last night I posted a message in the panic rooms for help dealing with a stress issue.
Tonight, I am posting to say thanks to all of those who commented.
I am posting tonight to let everyone know I am stronger than I thought, stronger than those who wish to bring me back down.
I may never fully get over a traumatic event in my life, but, it is in the past and that is just where I plan to leave it.
Anyone who would dare to bring it back into my life has their own black deep dark issues to deal with and I will not allow them to use my pain against me.
I choose to find happiness.
I choose to strive to rise above my own shortcomings.
I choose good mental health, and I choose good physical health.
So, just letting everyone know tonight, I am ok.
I hope I can keep climbing out of the mire of despair and hurt that I was wollowing in, and leave those behind who choose to remain there.
