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 Darls ..
    Yes I think the pain meds dull our brains....
    I also have discovered that they contribute to Dementia.
    If you can come off them then do so .. but don't stop them all at once.... You must wean yourself off them slowly , otherwise it is to big a shock to your system.
    Doctors won't tell you this, as it hasn't been proven... but when I was nursing I made the obsovation.
    You will find a lot of nurses will agree ..
    I will away to your blog ...
    Take Care ... love and Hugs Susie

    Thanks for clearing that up. Exercise is good - food is sometimes iffy. Feel free to kick my butt when I seem t slack off.

    I'm sorry that you are in a cast. It has to be hard during the summer. I hate to sound confused confused but what exercise? I exercise 90-120+ minutes every day so I don't know what you are talkng about. I hope you can explain. I want to participate fully. Blogging isn't my strong suit but I will try to do one either today or tomorrow.

If I get back on tonight I will better answer you.... I'm trying to figure out how to track eating out at someplace that isn't listed.... Whew what a bear.... I'm just gonna log from a comprable resturant and hope I'm close if not it's just a blown up day but oh well it's rare for me to even get half of what my nutrition tracker says anyway....
