Geez, thank you guys for your sweet & encouraging comments. Really every one of them made me cry. It's amazing the support we get here!!
Went to the doctor today. She did not give me anything for the pain in my back or tennis elbow. She advised I should rest, take ibuprofen etc...I will do that. I told her about my mouth, dry patches & pimples and said it's probably from the stress I have been under. Again, she advised me to rest and take it easy! So my prescription...Rest and take it easy!!!
She did confirm there is something going on with my ears and recommended another specialist. Geez I hate that! Also, she asked me a ton of questions, gave me a "thorough" exam, gave me a tetanus shot, burned off two mole things and took my blood. I have to tell you I felt a little roughed up when I left!
Anyway, I do feel a little better today! Attitude at least - body not so much! Couple more days I should be back to normal!!
This body is tough to take care of. So much to do. Here I was thinking that pushing myself to my extreme was a good thing. However, my body speaks to me when I've gone too far. I need to listen a little sooner, so I don't have these types of melt downs. Honestly this is why I'm so fat now. Prior to my new focus on my health, I would have quite by now. Managing this body is hard!! Fortunately because of what I've learned and experienced this past year and because of the awesome support I have I'm still on task. Although a little cautious with the exercise. So I'm not quitting!! Whew!
I was watching a movie preview and heard this statement that I thought was great and kind of resonates with where I am today....
"My focus needs a little more focus"!!
For me that means...EVERY DAY I NEED TO...Eat the "right and healthy" kinds of food, drink all my water, exercise ~ push myself, but not to fatigue (that causes injury for me), get plenty of rest, reduce my stress and HAVE SOME FUN!!
So my friends, thanks again for your support. You are awesome!!
Keep going with your journey, don't stop ever!! And remember....Keep focused!!
