Incoherent Ramblings Of A Chuberaser

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

So...the month of December was a relatively good time for me.

I lost three pounds even though I wasn't really trying (just imagine what I would have lost had I been exerting effort!!!)

Had medical tests done and got a good report. My heart cath showed no blockages whatsoever...AWESOME!!! My bloodwork with my GM showed all good except for my glucose levels. Fasting glucose was 108 and doc said I needed to work on my diet and exercise. And, the doc prescribed me some "happy pills" which is helping, too. Hey, I'll be the first one to acknowledge I need help with my emotional well-being! And if taking "happy pills" work for you...I say go for it!!

My daughters' birthday was December 31st. She would have been 29 years old. That day was really hard for me. I suppose it always will be. And, of course, I cried and cried and cried. I still miss her terribly. But, we were able to have her daughter, Bailey, with us for a week and that softened the pain a little. Bailey is growing so so fast! And, is turning in to a beautiful little girl. She's not a baby any more! Well, she will always be "my baby pooh" to me!

I am not going to have any New Year's Resolutions...those never work for me. I am simply going to try my best to be vigilant with my SparkPeople-ing! Tracking my food and exercise, reading SparkBlogs (you guys keep me sooo motivated!!!), all the good stuff that makes you feel positive and happy!

Thank you, all of my SparkFamily peeps! I truly appreciate each and every one of you!

    Congratulations on the good medical tests! I'm glad you got to spend the time with your granddaughter -
    Your "non" resolutions to track and be vigilant sounds like a good one!
    good luck to you!

    Those were perfectly coherent. Congrats on the great blood work. I lost my best friend right before Christmas 13 years ago. It makes the holiday hard. Glad you were able to enjoy your granddaughters.

    There are a million hugs in this note to you. I can never imagine how much pain you are going through. Wish I could make it go away.

    So "see" you around my original sparkfriend!
