Good for you, cats!

I've been eating a pretty restrictive diet lately, recommended by a functional medicine doctor. No wheat, no dairy, no added sugar.

So far, I've lost about seven pounds. And my lab work has improved. He claims it can help my MS. I guess we'll see.

Hmmm. Positive Thoughts and Accomplishments of the Day

Last week, I averaged 2000 steps per day on my Garmin Tracker, and I exercised 3 times. (Silver Sneakers class twice and recumbent bike at the Wellness Center once.)

Was on vacation and haven't made the time to check back since I returned. Re-evaluating your goals is a good idea if they aren't working for you.

I've been going to the YMCA once or twice a week. Doing the Silver Sneakers class.

Redoing my goals again. It is not wise for me to train for the 5k walking challenge with a knee replacement surgery this month (July 25). I joined the goal to encourage me to do something every day. I will do that in the future (I hope, the 5K walking challenge) but, for now, I joined a swimming group here in FB and a walking group. I think this way I will help myself do more and not just sit around and feel sorry for myself. It has been hard and I am opening the window to hope.

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful July 4th! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Day 4 was yesterday for the 5K walking program but I did it today. I decided that's good since I am not quitting. I hope everyone is doing fine and please be safe this July 4th holiday weekend. emoticon emoticon emoticon

That's great, MAMABUGAZ!

I completed day 3 of the Walk 5k challenge. I used my Canadian crutch to give support to my left knee which will get replaced next month. The doctor said it is okay. I don't want not exercise because the knee isn't great. So far, so good. Woo Hoo! emoticon

My accomplishments for the day:
- I am working on writing a memoir. Today, I met with an author friend who gave me some helpful feedback.
- I plan to volunteer at Circles of Hope this evening.

Positive thoughts:
- I am glad that Mitch McConnell plans to delay the health care vote. I am hopeful that the extra time will allow those of us who are opposed to convince our senators to vote against the bill.

Thanks, MAMABUGAZ!

My MS is somewhat stable and I take advantage when it is. It is a walking 5k challenge here in SP. I did day 2 today and I am tired but happy. Glad to see you here and have a great evening. emoticon

Thanks for posting, cobebu. We haven't used this forum for awhile. Might need to start again.

And a 5K; wow! That challenge must have been added by someone else. You go!

Good for you, MAMABUGAZ!

I just signed up for Walk your 5K Challenge and feel good about that. I need to keep going on bad days too and not quit.

Everyone, have a grand day! emoticon

Sort of a busy week, here, too. I always try to find a balance. I can't just sit at home and do nothing, but I don't want to be overly busy.

Returned from a Patient Advocacy Summit.
Got my fluctuating shot.
Voted early.
Attended Church F Family Night.
Attended small group.
Attending a women's brunch tomorrow.

Such a busy week. I know I have far too much on my schedule...kind of creeps up when I'm doing better. Now that symptoms are really challenging again I will likely have to get out of some things. I did get to a meeting this morning for a couple of hours. Then was able to do some shopping for the grandkids and other things to decorate Christmas packages. I also donated blood. Tonight we want to go to a concert in conjunction with the weekend Scottish Festival that we are helping with. So, I feel like I did accomplish a little. Only doing one batch of laundry today and have done hardly any cleaning this week. I'm hopeful that next week I will be stronger and better able to plow through what needs to be done.

Becoming the healthiest me that I can be.

That is so wonderful! Absolutely fantastic! So happy that you will be there...

I had my accomplishments of the weekend. We went to visit my daighter and her family. They have moved to Deland, Fl. It is a beautiful little town about three hours North of us...and 10 degrees cooler this weekend. So wonderful for doing so much more...we celebrated both children's birthdays and I got to watch my granddaughter cheer again...it was a glorious weekend!

My positive thought for the day:

I was invited, by the Executive Director of MSWorld, to attend and participate in a Patient Advocacy Summit in Overland Park, KS on Oct 24-25. It is sponsored by Teva, the drug company that manufactures Copaxone.

He and I will be meeting with Teva representatives, Shared Solution nurses, and representatives from National Multiple Sclerosis Society and other patient advocacy non-profits. He'll be making presentations to those groups, and invited me just to give "perspective".

I feel very honored to be invited to attend. I've been a member of MSWorld since 2002, and on "staff: as a volunteer as one of the moderators of their message boards. Patient advocacy interests me, because of my previous background in social work. And, I've always had an interest in health, from a "wellness" standpoint.

It starts tomorrow.

I'm like the painting of the rubenesque woman on the couch...my mom called it "baby fat" and told me it would go away... It did in the beginning, but once I had children it became a yoyo cycle...I'm neither a pear or apple....
That is the genetic form for where your fat wil be stored on your body and the positive thought is....you can loose the fat! So in theory I should be able to loose my tummy!

My genetics, on both sides of my family, are so apple-shaped. My mom had seven sisters -- all of them, except maybe one, are "apples". My dad had two sisters -- both are apples, and one is very obese. Some of my aunts worked at weight maintenance pretty much, and did OK. But most were pretty big around the middle.

I think water is the best cleanse to the body... Anything natural is good for you especially with water...
Our hormones go wacky after menopause. I found my biggest problem was loss of estrogen. The minute I lost my estrogen supply, loosing weight became hard ...and Premarin didn't help one way or the other... But that's me...everyone has to find their balance for their body....
Also genetics have a great deal to with weight...
Stay hydrated...

Reunions are awesome. Glad you enjoyed yourself!

Thanks for your input. I don't experience vaginal dryness; I'm using the progesterone cream because I wonder if regulating my hormones will help with the weight loss. I think it's possible that my hormones are somewhat out of whack following menopause. I use a small amount, and apply according to directions. It may allow the other things I'm doing (the diet, the cleanse, etc) to trigger the beginning of the weight loss that I hope to experience.

The cleanse is all natural supplements, and just help the liver, kidneys and body to do their work of cleansing my liver, detoxing my bowel, etc. I'm still eating the same healthy foods that I was eating prior to the cleanse. I'm not having the awful side effects that I've heard about with some cleanses.

We've all been working at this weight loss and maintenance for so long, Wishing success to all.

We have a new gym, planet fitness, that will be opening mid July 2 minutes from the house and a quick walk to the entrance. The heat is intolerable.
I have had my sinus surgery. Not the balloon one, but the bigger one called FESS. The doctor told my husband it is the worst case he has ever seen. Soo a very positive note... While in out of commission for a while, there was less bleeding. No sore throat either and my cough has decreased.
I did join weight watchers... That kind of moved me once before, but I still we be on spark people...I know the feeling about trying a new program. I did great with SP, but my husband complained about the smell of my food ( yet he could eat it without a problem) so I gave up. This time he asked me to join WW so we will see what happens...
I think the Premarin cream is good for vaginal dryness... I'm not a believer in cleansing because that's what your liver and kidneys are there for...water is the key for washing stuff...
You will get it going...
I had a great time at my reunion for nursing school!

I started a 13 week program through Nature's Sunshine, about 3 weeks ago, that is supposed to help with weight loss, gut health, cholesterol, blood sugar levels, metabolic age, etc. So far, my weight went up (instead of down) slightly, and nothing else was changing. It's working well for others in my Tuesday group and for those in other groups, so it doesn't seem to be a problem with the program, just with me.

The positive thought related to this is that my Nature's Sunshine rep keeps trying to give me ways to tweak what I'm doing and get it to work for me. I've changed the time of day that I take my supplements, I try to increase my exercise (although not to the level recommended), I added a dieter's cleanse and still no results. But, .. yesterday I started using a progesterone cream that she recommended and today the scale was down a little.

Maybe the direction is turning. emoticon

BIG positive thought.

Baby boy Micah Ethan was born this morning. 8 lbs, 14 oz; 21" long. We plan to leave Friday after work and drive Saturday, too, to go spend a little over a week with them. Can hardly wait!

I am excited! Especially since I feel good...doing more around the house and going to the pool for a couple of hours when it's nice...there has been a cool breeze off the ocean, too, so that helps....

Daughter got doctor's note, about a week ago, so she no longer has to work the rest of her shifts, prior to baby being born. She'd been in a car accident back in Sept and broke her foot. Due to pregnancy and all the walking at her nursing job, foot has still not healed completely and hip has been giving her a lot of pain.

Being off work has helped those problems a lot. She has the energy and is pain-free enough that she's actually been able to go on, and enjoy, fairly long daily walks.

13 days til due date!

My daughter {26) got married 5 years ago. She just graduated with a nursing degree this fall; wanted to finish college before starting a family. She lives in Canada, 900 mikes away.

My so (25) isn't dating anyone.

After 6 months I was finally released from Physical Therapy. My PT strongly advised me to continue the Aquatic Rehab by attending the MS Aquatic Exercise Group Class. It is offered 3x a week. I went yesterday and enjoyed it. The class is free as it is paid for by the MS Society.

My goal is to try to go 3x this week.

Hope everyone is having a pain free day!

It's so great when you feel good! The food situation was just not that healthy for me...and being with the grandkids makes it tempting...I gained weight back, but I really think I am bloated...I'm trying to stay active every day....
I only drink on the cruise ship and we didn't drink this time just because we didn't have the time....I finally made good on a promise to myself...I was very annoyed with some of the stuff going on on this ship. I went on a Carnival ship during a school break and that's a party ship and it was wonderful. We had our grandkids with us then too...so this time I wrote a letter to the CEO and I posted a critic on Cruise Critic...I actually followed through on something!
I went to the pool the other day too! Feeling good! glad you are too!

WooHoo Ez!! Walking around a cruise ship for days is a huge accomplishment! Wow! That is great!

After doing three days of exercise I am going to be lazy this morning. I am meeting my niece for lunch and then my hubby and I are going to visit friends tonight. They are building a fire in their pit tonight. We are going to eat pizza and drink wine while sitting around a fire. I only drink a half of glass because of the meds.

I am making progress because I woke up feeling well even though I more than i usually do this week.

Have a good weekend!

Hi Everyone!
Back a week from my cruise and fairly well organized...So I'm back to my Sparkpeople!
You cannot imagine what I saw the first time I had to walk from the elevator to my cabin...the longest walk in the entire world! LOL! I was huffing and puffing by the time I got there and I thought to myself "How am I going to get through this cruise?!" My legs are like rocks and I cannot breath well at all...Well by the time the cruise ended I could walk those hallways like a champ! And my iPhone told me that I was walking over 5000 steps a day...that was a wonderful thing...

I won't tell you that this was my most enjoyable cruise....it wasn't...but only because of the constant creaking noise in the cabin at night...we found out later it is the way the ship is constructed that the forward rooms should not be taken...and it was Spring Break...We took our older grandkids and they had fun, but there were some kids on the cruise who wrecked the mini golf course and threw the Bacchi Balls overboard...and I couldn't eat as healthy as I did on the Oasis of the Seas...so, unfortunately, I have gained some weight back...that yoyo keeps on hitting me...all in all fun...for the most part...

The big accomplishment that continues is my level of alertness and the ability to walk...I'm happy!

I usually sleep until 9 or 10 as well. I don't know what go into me yesterday.

My goal for the day is to feel well enough to go on a double-date with our friends to a cooking class. We will be making:

Dried Fig Tapenade and Goat Cheese Crostini - Asparagus with Poached Eggs and Lardons - Pan-Roasted Chicken with Tarragon and Dijon (Poulet à l'Estragon et Dijon) - Grand Marnier Soufflé de Sauce au Chocolat

I usually sleep until 9 or 10 am. But, I got up early enough, today, to volunteer. Stopped and picked up some groceries on the way home. That might be all I accomplish today.

I woke up at 5 am pain and fatigue free!! This is an accomplishment because I have been fatigued and in pain for 2 days.

I have already baked my brownies to bring to the Good Friday Crawfish Boil this afternoon. Every Good Friday my friends from New Orleans host a Crawfish Boil! Crawfish are delicious and I don't even mind sucking the meat out of the head of crawfish. Yes, I am gross like that

Accomplishment for the day: I went to PT even though I was exhausted. I felt better once I got in the pool and did an extra 15 mins of exercise in addition to the PT. Now I am fatigued and going to take a nap emoticon

That sounds wonderful! What island are you talking about?
We are cruising next week...three islands...St Thomas, Tortola (I think) and Bahamas....no getting off in the Bahamas....way too much crime...we will enjoy the ship and we will have the older grandkids with us...
I would love to take the little ones, but the 4 yr old is a pest at times...maybe one more year...and the parents are very protective...I don't blame them...just they way they are...
This should be fun!

That sounds like fun Faith!

I went with some friends to a beach bar last night to see a band. We closed the place down and I even danced a few songs. I didn't even have to bring my cane with me!

Since I don't drink I am always designated driver. Here on the island everyone drives golf carts around town. I had a cart full of people!

Interesting, Kelly, that that is a "new" way for them. In some of my previous jobs (and, it's been eight years ago, since I went on disability and discontinued working) we already focusing on beginning with "strengths". Sounds like speech therapy is catching up?

I invited a friend over for a movie yesterday. I used to have a movie night with about 3 friends once a month or so, but it seems like I don't get around to it as frequently as I did in the past. This time, I invited everyone, and, even though even only one could make it, we had a good time anyways.

I think that's a great way of looking at it...
I try to journal everyday no matter what....that is my big accomplishment!

My accomplishment for the days so far is that I logged on to Spark People and started tracking my food. I have not logged on or journaled my food for a few days because I was busy entertaining company.

One of my guests is a Speech Therapist in a hospital. She told me that the new way to evaluate and treat people with disabilities is to focus on what they can do and not what they can't do. She explained in a lot more detail than that but I forget how she worded.

Focusing on my what I can do makes me feel better mentally. Of course I have days where I get frustrated when my body doesn't do what I tell it to but I have more positive days than negative ones.

We have a Honda CRV too. Ours is older (1998) and dented; the body isn't great. Gas milage has always disappointed us. But, it has over 200,000 miles on it and still runs well. Hubby thinks it will go a long time.

It's our second vehicle. The main one we drive is a 2010 Hyundai Sonata; we like that too.

The "problem" vehicle is one that my husband traded to get rid of a dirt bike that he wasn't able to sell. He thought the van would be easier to sell, but ended up having some major engine problems and is worth almost nothing.

It's very difficult buying a car from another person. We are on the positive side of car buying. I have a 2004 Honda CR-V in beautiful condition. We had to put about $2500 into her this year, but she is worth every penny. We are probably going to get a new car by the end of the year ( I really don't want to) but my "Bluebird" will go to my granddaughter as a 16th birthday present..

I'm still doing well with my CPAP...so that's a very good thing...
And our cruise is coming up for Spring break with the two older grandkids...

Finished taxes yesterday. I hate that job, so it feels good to have it completed.

Made some phone calls, the last few days, regarding a poor vehicle purchase my husband made. Might end up pursuing small claims court, as the seller was fairly intentionally misleading regarding the info he presented prior to the sale. So, I have some follow up to do in the next few days, which feels "heavy", not positive. But, it does feel positive that we are making some progress and decisions about which direction to go with it.

More positive -- fundraiser at church this evening for our youth group. Will be a great meal. I use a "calorie cycling" plan for my diet, and today is scheduled to be an "enough" day, rather than a "skimpy" day, in terms of how many calories I can allow myself. I'll still need to eat judiciously and not binge, but, at least I'll be able to enjoy reasonable-sized portions this evening.

Yes...I like it too...it does keep me thinking positively...l can tend toward the negative, although I am doing much better with this thread...
And speaking of positive...I'm more motivated to do things lately...I'm sure because I thing the sinus infection has been taken care of...
I'll see what I can get done today...

In KS, a caucus is the only way to have any say in federal election, as our two electoral votes always go the same way, no matter how we vote. It would be different in a "swing state", but, we're not a swing state.

Was interesting, and, a very worthwhile experience, in my opinion, to particulate in the caucus yesterday. Was a very good turn-out, for a county our size, in both parties.

BTW -- I'm making this thread a "Stickie". I like it. I think it encourages us to post more regularly, and it encourages positive thoughts. Thanks, Kelly, for starting it. :-)
