Blessing: I'm really beginning to get addicted to healthy eating. I'm finding even when I can allow a small treat, I prefer the fruit over the brownie

Challenge: I'm struggling to eat enough calories, my dietition wants me to eat a minimum of 1650 per day so I don't lose the weight at an unhealthy rate but I'm finding it hard to get up to 1400. I suppose there are worse problems, but I had an eating disorder many years ago and have a tendency to be extreme. That is the last thing I want or need. Being healthy is even more important than losing weight for me right now.

Failure only exists when one fails to try, otherwise what some call failure is simply the opportunity to learn.

Cool!

One of my elderly clients lives in an upper-middle class area of town. One of her neighbors threw a "meet our puppy" party. It was so much fun she said.

Maybe you can have a graduation party for your son and Maxwell? LOL

We'll take the camera with us, as we want to get a picture of Maxwell (puppy) and his sister Gidget together. They are both from the same litter and they recognize each other well. I still can not believe they do graduation caps, sashes and pictures.

Blessing: This is a material blessing but I got another car yesterday, by far nicer than I've ever had a loaded 2005 Uplander. I usually don't focus on the material too much but it is nice to be spoilt and the best part is my interest and payments are less than they were for my piece of junk car.

You know what is a blessing? Choices.

We have a choice to eat healthy, or not.
We have a choice to exercise, or not.
We have a choice to get enough rest, or not.
We have a choice to to make good choices in our life.
We have a choice to do the best for our bodies, or not.

It's all up to us.

Eat smart. Live well.

I agree Cindy, I pushed myself to walk for 1/2 hour yesterday, after I took a long nap. I was exhausted at first but after 10-15 minutes of walking my energy increased and I slept much better last night. My problem is sometimes I push too fast too soon, so I have maintain some balance, but each day I feel a little better and it's starting to look like I might go back to work as early as Monday for a few hours, if I keep improving at this rate. Thanks for your input and support

I agree with what Kat is saying. Sadly, one little indulgence for most of us and we feel miserable afterwards. Keeping your commitment to this program and making healthy choices will make you feel so much better.

Now for the energy part, I hear what you are saying. I have had many sick times and other health issues come up to kick me in the rear and make it where I could not do much exercise and as a result my energy levels are gone. I have some, but just wear out way too quickly. Though I am not fighting just with my diet and exercise, but also with a permanent inner ear issue. My doctor recently told me that all of his patients, with the same problem, complain about fatigue, as their body is trying to overcompensate for a lack of balance in one ear. So the body expends tons of energy trying to keep itself standing upright and somewhat balanced. I kept thinking I was just being lazy or something, but had already begun to increase my workouts slowly. But, I have a health reason for being exhausted feeling all the time. Though he did state that increasing my exercise and pushing through it will eventually start to help me and I won't feel as exhausted. So just build your exercise routine slowly, as you can and little by little you will see your energy levels start to increase. As with anything, it takes time and patience. So we are here to help and know that you are not alone in this, we all go through some similar circumstances.

I was actually kind of proud of myself when I went out to breakfast. We went to Ihop which is one of my favorites and instead of the carmal pancakes I wanted I split a spinach,mushroom,tomatoe omlette with my friend. I'm pretty motivated at this point because I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired.

todays blessing: I'm alive and able
todays challenge: maintaining motivation

Unfortunately for us sufferers of blood glucose problems we cannot be like other people. We have to find out own dance.

You mentioned going out to a meal with a friend. Did you eat carefully and on program? This is very important. You and I and the others on this wonderful team cannot indulge for the most part.

I wish for you increased health and wellness. It takes time and effort and commitment. Oh, and support, which is what you get here on SparkPeople and on this team.

My blessing today is that my new diabetes med appears to be working and my numbers are starting to come down. I was also able to walk for 1/2 hour for the first time in quite awhile because I've been so sick.

My challenge is being extremely tired and just getting a little energy back. I went out for breakfast with a friend this morning and had to go home and take a 2 hour nap.

Good idea Karen, though hubs hurts more than helps when he attempts a massage. UGH! He is either too light like a feather where it does nothing, or too heavy like lead brick and it hurts. He tries, but hurts too much.

Blessings: Got plenty of sleep today.

Challenges: Have way too much to do today. But will try one thing at a time.
