Weigh In

The bodybugg plan I am using offers planned meals.  I am making up my own menu's because cooking for more than just myself it is impossible to follow another plan.
They do have these menu's that I look at each day just to give me ideas.

This is my measurement chart to date.  Or, at least since I began using this system.  I had been going along and losing here and there, and staying the same or watching fraction of inches float from place to place.  Britt (who takes my measurement's) and I were really surprised today by the increase in my chest and rib cage.  That had never happened before.  I am going to be watching these #'s.  I have a feeling it could be my chest expanding... I certainly hope not.

So, my weigh in... Today I gained .8 pounds.  Let's keep track of this... last week I remained the same, this week I gained .8 pounds.  Not the best 2 weeks for me. 
I got back on the trampoline yesterday and did 5 minutes just to test myself.  I found it very hard.  Today I am trying to do small amounts here and there, and I am still finding it difficult.  My chest hurts, I have pain in my lungs and my heart area.  My pulse is always high, so that tells me nothing.  I am a little concerned.  Enough to take things very slowly and if it doesn't get better over the next couple days, I will be calling my doctor for advice. 

I am still on the prednisone.  I just did my final 2 today... so 2 more days with one pill then I'll be off of them.  Hallelujah!! 

I sent in my registration today for a 5k run/walk next month.  I figured Bill would be there with me and maybe I can talk Britt into going too.

I'll let you know the closer it comes how I am feeling.  If you noticed I posted a few things on oxygen deprivation and how it effects your body and other organs.  I was told this will be my biggest problem because of the severity of my emphysema and my age. 

Some days I can get away with not feeling like I have lung disease.  This last week I am feeling all of it.

I don't know, according to this you might wanna stay ON the prednisone (see #4) Ha!

Prednisone may cause side effects.

* headache
* dizziness
* difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep
* inappropriate happiness

How can being happy be inappropriate? Oh, well, yes, I can see it now - "your pet dog just died? Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha." Oooops.

You CRACK ME UP! I haven't had inappropraite happiness... But now I'll be on the look out for it. It doesn't count laughing when someone stubs their toe, or runs into glass door? If so, then I have had that side effect on or off of Prednisone. LOL

Breathing gives your brain and muscular tissues while using the oxygen you'll want to keep on exercising.
