My continued determination

Dinner last night was Shrimp with rice. Simple Yet filling. I added some crabmeat and green beans to my serving. It kept me satisfied through the night. So lunch today was the same as dinner last night. This morning I was hungry so i got a breakfast sandwich. and Dinner today will be some kinda steak. Steak Diane is what the receipe says. I hope its good.

I stillhave not started my exercises yet. but I will today. My computer failed me yesterday so I did not get much work done on my avon business but I am confident that I will get it done today.

I have an appointmet for me to get a MRI of the head. They will find what everyone says there nothing in there. Maybe that is why i get the headaches. Regardless I have to have the MRI done before I can be referred to a neurologist. I know my neuro net has probably crashed. But I have been surviving this way for years why fix it now. Because i am getting to old to get up at 5:30 in the morning while going to bed at 2:00 in the morning. Not enoug…

My Determination

My determination to be 20 lbs lighter by March is kind of bittersweet. Bitter because I don't feel like I am going to make it. However I still keep to my determination. Sweet because the plan I put into place are actually working. With my lunches plan and ready in the morning I just grab and go. Yesterday lunch was really good. Southwestern Chicken Salad!

I started with bagged salad it's really quite the best way for me to get it. I dont have to cut it up.
Then I add already prepared chicken breast strips ( not fried chicken strips) These had a southwestern santa fe seasoning grilled into them. I heated them in the microwave 60 seconds and then I added Torilla chips strips also Santa fe seasoning with Thousand Island dressing. It was so good and very filling. So I am having the same thing today but I will be adding some tomatoes to it. I had the tomatoe yesterday but I did not have a knife to cut it up. But I am prepared today. When the 3:00 grazing time came around I had some l…

my determination

I have been losing weight and gaining weight at the same rate for years. For the most part I have been stable at 275 lbs for the last 10 years of my life. At some point after joining Weight Watchers I did lose 20 lbs which was great. Then I did as I usually do and stop following the program or switch to a different program.

Well, I know that I did gain weight. I do not need a scale to let me know this I just know it. Recently I have been feeling like I did when I had the 20 lbs still on me.

Dinner is a problem. I finish work at 5:30 and usually get home about 6:30, 6:45. This is only a problem because I like to eat dinner before 7:00. I don’t sleep until after 12:30 at night some nights later than 2:00 am. Its best for me to eat dinner before or at 7:00 so I can snack at 10:00 which is when my favorite show come on TV and I will definitely sit still and watch it and snack.

TAG for about a month cooked dinner each night. But that soon ended. So I have decided that I am going to create my …

Vasovagal Syncope also called neurocardiogenic

After going through a chest x-ray, ekg, and a echocardiogram. The final diagonsis is Vasovagal Syncope which is a medical term for fainting. We all faint from time to time and it is not life threatening. Not fatal unless you happen to be flying a plane at the time you faint. The tilt test revealed it all. His blood pressure drops and slows his heart beat and deprives the brain of blood results is black out, pass out, faint!

Everyoneone has different Triggers for fainting. They cannot determine the reason or trigger for TAG. For whatever reason his fainting trigger has been triggered and needs a beta blocker to stop it from happening.

I am thankful that the beta blocker will help with this. I am thankful to know that his heart is healthy. I am thankful that is was not a TIA or seizure and no brain damage was caused. I am also thankful that in 6 months this will be reviewed to see if he can come off the medication. It's also good to know that he is doing well managing his dia…

circuit assembly of jehovah witnesses

On saturday I went the first half of an all day session at the assembly hall of Jehovah Witnesses. I went to be of help to a coworker who was going for the first time with her children and I thought I could be of help. I would watch over the children so she could listen and concentrate on what was being said. Unfortunately I was not much help. I got so involved with the program I forgot about being of help to her. I apologized to her but I did give her a tour of the building. Showing where the bathrooms were located which is essential information. I showed her where the pool for baptism took place. Where the lunch room was located. Before the second half started I went home excuse me back to TAG job and waited for him to get off work. I felt as like I failed in helping her. Chances are the younger one probably would not stay with me anyway. He is 4 years old. The older one sat quietly where he and follow the instruction to sit quietly. But that is a bit much to ask a 4 y…

stuff in my head

For some strange reason I started back to reading the newspaper for several reason the main reason is I would be following a story to see it fully resolved and the newspaper would stop reporting on it. One time I actually call the newspaper to get the final story. That is incredibly frustrating.

Another reason is it not unbiased reporting. I just hate that.

So this will be short lived I am sure because the only thing I enjoy about the newspaper at this time are the cartoon, puzzles and style pages.


The migraines have made a come back. I don’t know why they returned but I know I cannot wait for them to leave.

The migraines of earlier years were absolutely wicked. Blurred vision, inability to think straight, no tolerance of loud noises, no tolerance to any sounds, loss of time with pain in my head to boot. During this time in my life I felt like…
