The Need For Change Is Here

Monday, May 11, 2015

Hello Spark Friends!
This past year has been a very difficult year! My Son and his wife along with my two Grandchildren moved in with hubby and I in January of 2014. Jobs have been hard to come by and they are still living with us. My Daughter In Law is now working and my Son is still looking for a job. They do help around the house and they pitch in financially when they are able. With only 1 car between myself and son he brings me to work and takes Felicia to work. Picks both of us up and takes care of the house and kids and dogs. He is an awesome Son even though he is not working. My husband and I both work.
I had my other son living with us briefly as well until he went back to be with his ex wife. Which is a big mistake. Long story.
I have left myself go so bad this past year. I tried and tried to get back on track to no avail. With hubby having crappy insurance at his workplace and mine not being good at all we did with out for a long time with taking care of ourselves. This past February I Got hired at Ruby Memorial Hospital as a Housekeeper. More money and excellent Benefits.So with that being said. I have had to use it. The end of Jan I was sick with Bronkitis that turned into a touch of pnomonia. Was a long 6 weeks. Never caughed so bad in my life. Ribs hurt for weeks afterwords. After I got over that I made the decision to get to a regular Doctor and get myself checked out. Oh and I also had plantor fashlitis for about 6 months.
I really like the doctor I have chosen she is very throughoh. She scheduled me for a Mammogram., Blood Work, Ex Rays On My Hands And Feet. Just to start with. The first thing I did was have a mammogram since it had been way to long that i had one done. My esults came in as abnormal. A sonagram was scheduled. Thank God It showed just FibrousTissue!
This past week I had my blood work and x rays done. The good news is I do not have Rheumatoid Arthritis. However I do have Erosive Arthritis!!!
The bad news is my blood work is not good at all. My levels are very high in all catagories. Choelestrol, Tryglysirides, LDL, HDL etc..... Yes not good at all.
My next doctors visit is in june. I know whats comeing. I need to drasticly do something with my weight and lower my choelstrol. So I NEED TO GET ONBOARD AND START TO MAKE CHANGES NOW!! Sorry this is so long.
With my family living here and working I find myself so tired all the time and dont have energy to do anything. This has to change. Its been so easy to have quick meals but its not been healthy at all for me or hubby! Cost of food makes it hard as well.

So I'm in need of major changes. Feeling overwelmed. My health is deteriating. I ache all over. One of my major aches is in the butt. I think I have priformis syndrome. Even though I have never been diognosed. My exercising is going to consist of stretching for a while .
Im asking you all to keep after me daily if your able too. Working 5 days a week with one day a week im putting in 12 hours I find myself being lazy. Im needing motivation, encouragement and for my self I need to be accountable for my actions or non activity!
I have lost weight on here before I hope I can do it again!!

    Under your circumstances it is so easy to become stressed. Work on one thing at a time so that it is not more overwhelming. If you have a pedometer getting a few more steps in. You know how and you can do this. emoticon emoticon
