Sometimes we may lose our way and need to refocus. Such is a time. I've been thru a couple of injuries, illnesses lately and it's thrown me around. Emotional eating happens often for us at these times. Mine wasn't that bad, and it was mostly I wasn't able to exercise as I normally would.

I am still facing more Dr appointments, and tests, but I am HOPING the worse, the scariest stuff is over. I do have another brain scan left to go, but I am hoping that's been taking care of with an increase in a medication. Sure, I'll bruise very easily again and I HATE that (ever had a stranger come up to you in a store and say "If you are being hurt, I'll help you" and while it's so loving strangers care, it's also YIKES Its embarrassing. Yet, it also gives me a chance to assure them I am fine. If they ask any further questions, i am open about why I am on a blood thinner due to a brain aneurysm that fortunately was found by accident. If they mention a close relative (parent/sibling/ child) has had one I do urge them to at least get a MRI done. It can save their lives.

COURAGE helps to SLAY anxiety of "is something wrong"? Often times our minds FEAR the worse, but RARELY are things that bad, and 95% of the time we fear whats not realistic.

HERE's TO COURAGE.

My Goals:
My Eating:
To stay in my calorie range that Sparks has set up for me. With my carbs, proteins and fats in the allowable allowance. HOW? Meal PLANNING!! WOOHOO!!
My Exercise:
As we will start the 5% Challenge (GOOOOO AWESOME A team!) I'm in week 3 of a broken foot, and it may take another 3 or 4 weeks, perhaps more to fully recover. It's still quite painful. So my PREFERRED exercise is WALKING, but that's OUT otherwise than using my knee scooter which does burn calories so well, but can hurt my leg so I need to be aware of it. So instead I am working on my core muscles, my arms and I'll do a TON of stretching with easy yoga! Sitting of course!


My Program:



Personal Information:
I LOVE my family of which includes "the little guy" who is 2 years old. He's the 1st GGS and awww not at ALL SPOILED at Grandma's! LOL Right!!

Have learned cooking is a GREAT means to YUMMY, but much healthier food!! It's not complicated, but still very tasty.

I am OWNED by a brown tabby her name is Izzy, but she's as sweet as they come. Yet, she sure does make me laugh and laugh!! I am so fortunate to live right on the harbor!! What a view!! I am grateful for this.

    Hi Diane, am watching the weather forecast for the NE and thought of you. Do you have snow yet? I knw you love it. We may get a dusting tomorrow evening but it will not last long. Am busy about many things. Head back to eye doctor soon for 4 month follow up. Eye has some changes so will be interesting to see what he has to say. Think of you often. I think you sneak over to the dog park every so often to wag your tail! emoticon June

    Hi Diane!
    Just dropping by to wish you a happy fall. Or if you are like us it might be winter, lol!
    We have already had 3 snowstorms and lots of cold. However today was beautiful!!
    I have been crazy busy with work, finally decided to go back to part time so I could live life a little. I do love my job though.
    Hope all is well your way! Are you doing a challenge team right now? I may do the winter one since life has suddenly slowed down with my work changes.
    Miss talking to you!
