Fit Check 3/20/18


Another week has went by and I am getting closer to my goal of getting healthier. I am eating better and exercising more. I am enjoying being outside with my kids. My weight is not coming down anymore yet but I know it will. I just have to keep on and I will. I am stuck between 178 and 180. It can be frustrating and discouraging but I know it will come off as long as I am persistent.

Hi all!! Well I am feeling loads better then last week. I finally got over the bug that my lovely daughter gave me. Now I just got to get back up and exercised again. Which…actually is not as hard as I thought it would be. My body is sort of craving to exercise. So now I will give it what it wants. Till next week!!Screenshot_2018-03-13-04-47-51.png

Good morning everyone!!! Hope your week is going great and you are at least trying to be healthy as I am 🙂   Not much has changed from last week except I’ve started getting out and kicking the soccer ball around with my daughter. It feels amazing. I’m glad I can do it with no major issues and she enjoys me being out with her as well. It’s great mom and daughter time….she’s 13 so it’s perfect! It’s a win, win situation for both of us.

As I told you all last week, about my wrist, my doctor stated that there is not any nerve damage  or other issues. He stated that the test was not 100 % indicative of no problems that is just eliminated any issues from the arm up to my neck. He stated he is 99% positive that I have carpal tunnel as well as a “trigger thumb”. So I have been scheduled for a surgery on April 12 to get those fixed. Hopefully that will alleviate the pain.

G’morning all!! Here is another fit check update. When coming out of the winter season it can be especially hard to trim the pounds off. You’ve got used to eating for winter sustainability and to convert over to eating different for the warmer months is hard. Especially when it is still dreary, cold, and rainy. Well, I am getting back into the swing of things and have started eating less starchy foods (breads, pastas…etc) and getting back to eating more fresh foods (fresh fruits and vegetables). I do eat fruits and vegetables in the winter but they really are not as appealing as the heavier foods. As it warms up, I will be able to get out more again and actually go hiking and trailing. I’ll be able to get out on my bike and ride around with my kids in the fresh air too. Here’s to spring…glad you are just around the corner 🙂

I know I said last week I’d give an update about my wrist, so here it is. Apparently there are no nerve issues (yay) but then what is causing the pain? I have an appointment this Thursday to discuss that with my Dr. We’ll find out more info at that point.



Fit Check 2/13


Good morning everyone!! Today is a good day!! It stopped raining for a little bit and the sun is trying to come out! I also lost some weight!! Yay!! I guess it is starting to move again. I’m glad to see it come off but again it is not my primary goal. I am changing the way I live versus just focusing on the numbers….and it is working.

Last week I told you I will probably have to do surgery on my right wrist due to carpal tunnel. Well yesterday was the first step. I had a nerve test and let me tell you…do not believe what they say when they tell you it is not painful because it is. The first part is not so bad. It is like one second zaps in your arm. The worse part is when they stick you with the needle probe. It is a longer period of time then the zaps and it will leave you in pain in the entire area. I tend to have a high pain tolerance but this was so different and I think because it was internal was so painful. As I am writing this, it has went away after  a good night’s sleep but it feels like I have worked out so much and my muscles on that side are so sore. But it’s over now and just have to wait on the test results which should be back today and they will let me know what the next steps are.



Fit Check 2/6


Hi all!!! Here I am once again posting about my improvements or not. I am feeling better again. I knew I would if I started up again but like last time my weight is not budging. I will get it to move. It is just a matter of persistence. I just have to keep at it and it will work. I lost some previously and I will again. I just have to maintain the course. and I will.

On to another note, I am going to have to have surgery on my wrist. Not immediately, because the Dr wants to do a nerve test to see how bad it is. Then he said we would discuss my options. I knew it was going to happen eventually. I have actually been putting it off for 3 to 4 years because number 1, I did not want to have surgery and number 2, I did not want to have the downtime (ugh). So we will see what comes of the test. I’ll let you know in my next post.
