Starting over Again!!!
Tuesday, October 12, 2010
It has been over 200 days from the last time I blog and so much has happened. My mother in law was in and out of the hospital all summer until she lost her battle with cancer at the end of Aug. I took a part time managers position at work and bought a car on my own. Got the loan, picked the car out after checking it out on line and checking out the dealership also.
I have been on predinsone now for a year and am trying to get it down to 5mg and keep it there. It's hard to lose weight at the higher levels, and so I started lowering the dose this week in hopes that it will help. There is a trade off, as I'm a little stiffer in the morning and after a five hour day at work I come home with sore feet, but I'm willing to go through it. I'm having trouble with my foot and will be seeing a surgeon on Oct 25th, but will wait until winter to have anything done. The problem stops me from walking at a fast pace to really get the calorie burn going. So I use the elliptical,but still have pain, but not willing to give it up. I'm back counting my points and will start logging my food on here sometime this week.Now I have to retrain my hubby to not bring home the junk food.
One more thing, I walked my second 5K this past Aug. And hope to do more next spring and summer. And so I begin again!
