Last week of Challenge 1

Okay this is the last week of challenge 1. I am saying challenge 1 because Tanna has decided to start challenge 2 and I am joining the new challenge also. I am doing bad this last week. It is Tuesday and I havent excercised yet. I have been having alot of things happen personally and in my family that is so depressing that it makes you wanna give up but I am excercising tonight to try to get my mind off things. I only have 4 tokens left in my excercise jar so I still have time. I did use my last cheat today. I was driving back from Little Rock and I stopped at chick-fil-a and I had some waffle fries. I am anxiously awaiting results from Children's Hospital on my son Drake also, so it is very hard not to cook a pan of brownies and eat them. I did finally get some good news today from my gastro doctor though. My lab work came back and I tested negative for Hep C so the chemo is working. Finally THANK GOD FOR SOME GOOD NEWS! It seems here lately that I was never going to have good news. Friday when we took Drake to Children's Hospital he had lab work and they did xrays. They really don't know what he has yet but alot of doctors and nurses said they haven't heard a cough like that before. He does have an appointment with a pulmonary specialist on June 2nd so I will need extra prayer please for this. It was so cute though, they put him in a hospital gown and he kept calling it a poncho. He told all the nurses he thought this poncho was cool could he wear it home. Well I will go for now time for another breathing treatment for Drake... until then....

My poor sick child....

My son has had this horrible cough for about 3 weeks now. I took him to see Dr. Braden for the past two weeks and Dr. Mosley yesterday. They don't have a clue what is causing him to cough. It is a horrible dry cough. I have tried vaporizer, humidifer, steamy shower, cool night air, vicks vapor rub, allergy medicine, cough medicines with coedine (SP?), antibotics, breathing treatments, and steriods yesterday. We sit in the waiting room and he is wearing a mask and everyone is starring at my child like he has a plague. I feel so sorry for him and wish I could take the pain away. They just called and he has an appointment at Children's Hospital in Little Rock on Friday so please say a small prayer that the doctor will find out what is wrong with Drake and that he can start feeling better soon. Until then.....

Challenge update!

Well I have been doing better this week. I have excercised more and loving this challenge. I did use a cheat last week and and didn't lose a pound but I think it was because I didn't really excercise last. I have used 3 cheats I think now. I am not at home to make sure. I have lost only 7 lbs. and I only hope this number goes up on Saturday. I am going to Little Rock tomorrow to meet Tanna "THE BEAST" and I can't wait to meet all the other beauties. This challenge has been the best thing to come along for me. When I feel like giving up I don't because I know there are 49 other people out there that I would be giving up on. Well I better get back to work. Until then....

Week 3...

So far Week 3 is not going good. I have had much depression and I am feeling really sick. I don't want to exercise or do anything but sleep. I need extra prayers please because my son's birthday is coming up and if I put the cake in front of me I will probably eat the whole thing. I really am an emotional eater and with the depression it is getting harder and harder to resist temptation. I did put a call into my doctor so maybe I will be put on antidepressants right now until I finish the chemo. I hope all the girls are doing good in the challenge. I am praying for each of you as you fight the urge in this challenge also. I really wanna work out tonight but today I am also fighting off nausea. So hopefully I will get a workout or two for the week is over. Until then......

Week 2....

Well this weekend it rained here all day Saturday and I didn't work out any. But I have great results for Week 2 of the challenge. I have lost 7 pounds total and I used 1 cheat for 2 weeks. Much determination and encouragement from the other team members is definitely how I got this far doing this. This team is a great group of girls and it is so encouraging to be able to send out an email when you have a question or need some uplifting words. To all the Beauties out there......... Thank you! Week come on I am ready to dive into you head first!!!!!
