Feeling Nauseous

I'm feeling quite nauseous today.  Seeing as my two boys and my husband were sick earlier this week it looks like it's my turn.  I'm caught in a state of wanting to eat because I'm hungry but feeling nauseous so I don't want to eat much and not eating much is making me feel even more nauseous. 

I just had some fat free yogurt with active cultures in the hopes that the cultures will do something to combat the 'bug' in my gut.  Not sure it will work but it's worth a try.  So far so good.  I took a peak in the cupboard to see what else would appeal to my stomach.  Low and behold I found a package of Ramen Noodles!  The last time I ate Ramen I was getting over a bad case of the flu.  That seemed to be the only thing that tasted good (because of the high sodium in the flavor packet I only used a scant amount for a little bit of flavor).  Would I recommend buying them? - nope! - but in my college days that was a cheap food and sometimes you just eat what tastes good to get anything down.  After checking out the nutrition info on Ramen Noodles one package contains two servings and one serving is worth five WW points.  If I feel desperate I may give it a try later on. To eat or not to eat that is the question?  What would you do?

There's another reason why I'm feeling nauseous today and that is over what happened to Lara Logan.  I couldn't believe what I was hearing when I listened to the news last night.  I'll spare you the details and let you read about it somewhere else online.  I'm outraged at how something like that could happen.  What is going on in a country where a women is assaulted in the streets during a 'celebration'?

Hoping the nauseous feelings go away soon and something can be learned from all this.  Lara my heart aches for what you went through.  Sending you prayers of healing and comfort.

The #MeToo Campaign

Fingers crossed that this trend continues. For the past 10 days, I've been feeling energetic for the first time since? It's been so long I can't remember. I'm feeling cautiously optimistic. It feels like I don't have depression anymore. What an amazing feeling that I hope never ends. Its kind of ironic as this time of year gets difficult with the shorter days. I've been using my Verilux lamp in the morning as I have for the last few years so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with why I'm feeling good? I'm feeling better now than I did a year ago. 

Depression doesn't affect me in ways someone might think when it comes to energy. I'm high functioning in that I'm not catatonic. It's just that my energy is limited (occasionally it feels like gravity is turned up or I'm trying to walk through waist-deep snow thankfully not often). A friend once explained to me what it's like to have Lyme disease (unfortunately she has chronic…

Weight Watchers vs. Jillian Michael's

It's been a little over 3 years (January 2010) since I started my weight loss journey. I reached my goal weight in May of 2011 (135 lbs). Since then it's been a yoyo and my trend had been going up over the last several months. My current weight is 150 lbs (I was 155 but lost 5lbs over the last few weeks). My goal is to lose the weight I put back on (20 lbs) plus an additional 5 lbs for a weight loss of 25 lbs in total. It's so hard keeping the weight off!!

The strategy I'm now doing this time is different. I've decided to follow Jillian Michael's weight loss program instead of continuing on with Weight Watchers. I lost the 80lbs on Weight Watchers and the program served me well. It forced me to look at portion size, calories (with old points system), fiber, carbs, fat and protein (with the new points plus system).  It changed the way I looked at food. Instead of processed foods I focused on eating a variety of whole fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains and low …

7 1/2 Weeks Post Op - 185lbs

It's been almost 8 weeks since my surgery.

I never thought I would see this day! The aqua therapy and physical therapy has paid off (as well as the surgery). My leg and back are pain free. Yesterday at my last physical therapy appointment I hopped, skipped, jumped and ran on the treadmill for 2 minutes! Pain Free!!! I never thought I would hear myself say the words: "I ran". My recovery time for this surgery was a lot tougher than the surgery I had last year. It feels like I can start to move forward.

Unfortunately during my recovery time for comfort I've done a lot of eating. When I was actively exercising/running I would get a runners high. I think that was a big help to keeping me on track with my eating. The endorphins gave me a comfort high. However when I feel stress and lack of control and running isn't an option I tend to gravitate to food. Food and the pleasure of eating it is something I can control. Unfortunately there is a down side and that is weigh…
