I Survived The Treadmill Test

I walked on the treadmill for 8 minutes yesterday.  That may not seem like much to you but for me, that’s pretty darn good. Especially when they keep making it go faster and taking your blood pressure, plus, they keep talking to you.  It’s like “Stop talking to me and let me concentrate.”

I also just got some really good medical news.  I’ve been approved to get my IGG Infusions/Injections (whatever) at HOME!  Yeah.  That means, I can stay home and watch t.v. in bed with my animals on the bed with me (as long as my cat leaves the I.V. alone.)  I hate the thought of kicking her out of the room, but I may have to since she is a bit curious.  The nurse is going to come to the house and it is 100% covered by insurance.  They said it is more cost-effective this way.  Wow!

I thought I would include a pic of my new work-out outfit which I love so much.  Yes, this will motivate me to work out more, as well.

My 80’s Fashion Crisis

No, I am not having a mid-life crisis.  I’ve already done that. Seriously, I don’t even want to go there, however, I do think I may be having an 80’s crisis.  Is that a thing?  I think I want to go back.  I so loved and miss the styles.  Oh my gosh, I just bought an electric blue, lycra workout set from e-Bay.  It only has one minor spot on it.  It looks totally cool.  Yes, I’ll still work out to Wii and no, not Jane Fonda.  I used to have her workout album but I don’t think I do anymore.  Although, I can always turn on the 80’s station on my DVR and just dance.  That is exercise too.  “Let’s Get Physical..Isical..I want to get physical…” Yeah..Yeah, Didn’t I tell you I’ve lost it?

Oh yeah, Speaking of fashion, I found the perfect shirt for me.  I think I’ll order it.  Seriously.  It says, “Cats Not Kids.”  That is like so ME.  I know what my husband would say.  He would say, “If you want people to like you, you shouldn’t wear stuff like that.”  You know what? I’m tired of wanting people to like me.  They can like me or dislike me.  Whatever.  If I lived my world worrying about who does or does not like me; I’d probably be dead by now.  I am me.  Accept me for who I am.  Hmm.  I really want to buy the shirt.  I put it on my Amazon Wish List..but..why wait?  I have the money and it is so ME!  Heck, it is calling my name.  That’s it.  I’m coming shirt.  I am ordering you now.

Don’t worry, people with children who I know.  I will not wear it to your house or your functions.  Call before you come over and I will not wear it then either.  But  it’s me and noone can stop me from buying this now.  “Cats Not Kids.” Perfect!  Unless your a goat.  Then, I’ll take kids too.  Hey, I should wear that shirt when I go to get my hysterectomy.

 

My Weight Options

Well, I’m gaining weight again so I took myself shopping.  I totally needs shorts and a new swimsuit.  I want a Tankini.  Originally, I wanted one with a skirt attached but now I think I’m better with shorts.  I tried a skirt one on and I actually looked like a Tug-Boat.  Really Sad.  Even more sad.  After 5 or more hours of shopping (or I should say “walking around”) I came home with nothing.  Most things made me look pregnant and some things wouldn’t fit over my butt if I wanted them too (which I obviously did)).  I found one pair of shorts that were possible until I looked at the price tag.  I really don’t want to pay $21.00 for a pair of shorts.

Plus, the styles these day…have you seen them?  I am a 47-year-old woman!  I don’t wear ripped jeans.  I throw my jeans away when they get all ripped.  I prefer my shorts to be long.  Hey, my butt may hang out of those anyway but at least not as much; and if you think I am getting in a regular Bikini again, you’ve gotta be kidding me.  On some, they make the tops (and bottoms) with strings that can be untied.  You would think I could  trust people not to pull the string when in the pool but  some of my old friends get wild.  “Whoops, where did the top go?”  “Uh..No, I’m not playing that.”  We won’t even discuss the possible bottom string adventures.  Then, we have the jeans.  You think I am going to fit my flabby body into “Skinny Jeans.”  I don’t think so.

Heck, I had a Kidney Transplant and I am eating Gluten-Free.  Despite what you may think..Gluten-Free does not alway’s help you lose weight. I also have to keep my calories up and my protein at a certain level and since most Gluten-Free is very low-protein I wind up eating quite a bit of food to reach my goal.

Anyway, I have two main options.

I can either:

Start exercising again and try to stick with it.  This is the tougher one but probably the best one health-wise as, it would be good for my bones too.

or,

Gain more weight until I fit into a decent size  where they have more clothing options.  I am sort of in the middle of sizes now and it is very annoying.

Sick & Swap Meet

Woke up feeling a bit like crap today but not as bad as I thought I  would.  It actually started Friday with the hot/cold sweats and sore throat then turned into coughing, sneezing, ringing ears, etc.    Have to be over it by Thursday to see my new Nephrologist.

My husband and I went to the Swap Meet yesterday and I got a Hula Hoop which I am looking forward to using in the back yard for exercise.  I know I will suck but it will be fun to try.  We also got some animal beds for the animals.  Firepies’ is a tent and while she is not used to hers yet, I am trying to lure her into it with catnip and toys.  I think she will like it eventually.  She keeps going in and out of it now.

We are actually looking for wall pictures but the selection was extremely slim so we may go to a larger Swap Meet next wknd.

Better For Each Other

One of the low-protein food companies I order from sent me a  ree cake mix for my Birthday so I whipped up a cake.  This is the first cake I’ve ever made that has no Eggs and is Soy based.  The batter was good anyway so..

I talked to a friend last night who has Propionic like I do and she also gets diarrhea when her Protein is off.  To bad we never really discussed this before because it’s good to know that it affects us all.  I’ve been doing a lot better monitoring that thanks to Spark Fitness.

I’ve been kidding around with my husband since he joined a gym.  I don’t know if I mentioned that he accidentally broke the main line of our Jacuzzi and instead of spending lots of money to get it fixed, he decided to join the local gym which has one.  I was teasing that now he is going to get all buff and in shape and not be attracted to me anymore.  Truth is, I just cannot exercise right now.  I am way to uncomfortable but as soon as I get these stupid Hemorrhoids taken care of I plan to get back on track, myself.  I have an Exercise Bicycle here and DVD’s and a Jump Rope,  plus, there is a nearby park.  Of course, there is also Curves which I’ve considered but I would really have to check that out and make a commitment for that.  But, in the future, I think we will both be on the right track.
