Happy Saturday morning everyone...I'm down almost three pounds since I started sparking again. I've tracked every single day, denied myself little, and have even started doing small exercises using a chair. I had one really good day this past week and took my dog for a walk around the block. I used my walker in case I needed to sit down which I didn't. That was huge for me since I hadn't been able to do that in quite a long time.
Other than watching my carb and calorie intake, I took myself off the statin drug I've been on for quite a while. Doctor said it was okay to try it. Within a week's time, the muscles in my legs felt stronger, the pain was way less, and overall I felt so much better, physically and mentally because I wasn't dealing with so much pain. Next week she's going to start me on another statin, low dose to see if I can tolerate it. Sometimes I think the medications we take cause other problems. I know in my case it did.
So for now, all is well and I'm staying on track. My head seems to be in the right place this time. I'm trying to relieve myself of the stressors in my life which in turn helps my coping mechanisms. This will be a slow process but I feel I'm in a positive state and hope to stay that way.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone. Sun is shining brightly here in Florida, hotter than hades with high humidity. This girl is in for the duration of the day. Working on another book so that will keep me busy.
