I'm here...and I have a question!

I know it's been a long time since I have posted. I have been crazy busy with family, work, and some friends! This year has started off on a very sick note! I work on January 1st with one nasty sore throat, so I went to the doctor the next day and was diagnosed with strep. I was put on anti-biotics. That cleared up and then my glands started swelling...to the point that talking hurt, breathing was difficult, and I was miserable. I mean, I could feel the blasted things, they were getting big and hard. Not a friendly! So I went back to the doctor and was put on a steroid. Don't worry, I didn't start growing a beard or a hairy chest! But it cleared up my glands...only to find out that steriods reduce your bodies defences. I got sick again. My throat started hurting agian, my nose was runny and stuffy at the same time. I was miserable...and to boot my voice was going out. I could barely teach. My voice sounded like I was going through puberty! So after about a month and a half I got better! Things are starting to look up now! I do not want to go through that again! I need to take care of myself, aye! Now I wish spring was here so I could get out and go walking. My goal is to go walking to help me get in shape. I also want to work on my eating habbits...turn them into good eating habbits! So I am posing a question to y'all. What do you do to keep in shape and what do you do to keep eathing healthy? I need some new strategies. I am really struggling and need to make this a good year for me! Happy March and may the Luck of the Irish always be with ye! Okay so my computer is acting up and it won't let me add pictures...so use our imagination and pretentd I posted a dancing leprechaun that had a rainbow over his head! And a sign that says "Happy St. Patrick's Day!"


  1. I, too, was thinking I need to make some positive changes. I seriously do a crappy job of taking care of myself:( I like your walking idea!!

  2. The best way that I know how to take care of myself is to drink at least 64 ounces of water a day, sleep at least 8 hours a night, exercise at least 45 minutes a day, and above all, I make certain that I don't eat past 7:00 PM. In terms of eating right, well, I'm not the best source on that topic. But I try to make my meals as colorful as possible. To much of one color probably means that I'm not getting enough veggies or fruit in my diet. So I look for the rainbow. Ha ha. Not saying I always do all of these things, but when I do, I feel energetic and healthy.

    Hope you are feeling better now, miss Sara! All of that sickness is no fun. :(

    1. Marissa,
      Those are some great ideas! I really wish I would make the time to walk or something every day. I sucked at my goal! I really need to do this. I'm sick of my feelings about myself! I see my friends and some of my sisters losing weight and the negativity about myself pops up. If I'm going to do this I need to be positive and happy.
      I'm thinking smaller portions, no eating after dinner, more water, and TRY to get out and walk during the week! Sometimes I wish I had an elliptical so I could just get up and work out at home
