Another week - learning more and more

Friday, March 01, 2013

This week I actually exercised Monday, Wednesday, Friday for at least 30 minutes. On Tuesday and Thursday I tried to do some viedo workouts and did some strength training as well. My problem is that I am retaining the water again from when I was in the hospital last week. I have gained 8 lbs from when I got out and I am sure that it is water gain.

It not that I haven't cheated, I had some low blood sugar days and today I had part of a hersey chocolate bar. I am going to take an additional water pill tonight and hopefully that will make me loose this excess water. I am worried because the doctor said don't take the extra water pill but when I don't the water doesn't come off. I can't see myself going to the hospital every two weeks to get water off. ugh. I am so tired today it is weird. If I continue to feel like this I don't know what I will do. I am stressed about work, stressed about my son and stressed about not getting better. The headaches I have had this week are horrible. I don't know if it is the medication, my health or what it is.

I need to get a blood pressure machine, but there are so many and the cost is so much. I still need to get my days organized. I have no energy so just fixing three meals a day is a chore. It is really hard when I can't figure out what it is that I want to eat. My jaws ache from chewing so much.

So while this blog isn't very inspiring, it helps me process the week and plan for this next upcoming week. emoticon emoticon

    Do you drink green tea? I heard that it is a wonderful, natural diuretic and it may help you lose some of that water weight....also watch your sodium....

    I hope you feel better and the headaches go away...stress isn't good at all so try to find ways to "de-stress"....good luck! emoticon
