In general I felt awful all the time and getting ill very easily, not just from working out. That has never been the norm for me. I stayed on a work out routine for over 5 years and always felt great but this time around it lingered on for a long time so I froze my gym membership for several months and worked on a few things with my health in a holistic manner (it would take forever to list everything!). Wednesday I felt awesome after my work out and hoping for the same results today! My whole goal in working out is JUST TO FEEL GREAT AGAIN, nothing else- not trying to lose weight or body building-just need energy to live a long healthy life!!!

This IS NOT a downer post but a "FEEL TERRIFIC POST"!!! Send happy things my way, please!!! I will report back later!

Have a Merry Day my Christmas Friends!!!!
Praying! I hope it goes well today and you find yourself with a lot of energy!

Have a blessed weekend everyone.
So happy about your mom and will continue to pray!

You have NO IDEA what all I have tried!!! I could write a book! I just never discussed it on here all that I have been going through, wanted to wait for good news instead of "gloomy" news to report. Yes, all B vitamins including B12 injections. I DO APPRECIATE the advice and will continue to take as much as possible because not sure it's over yet but hoping it is! Thank you for the suggestion! Doctors have been clueless for a few years about it so I took matters into my own hands and studied nutrition and trying many things! Becoming my own doctor seems to be working better than an MD. I am not knocking doctors at all!!! We have to have them, I just have a "hard to diagnose case" I guess. Maybe just involving nutrition and possible deficiencies that some doctors don't usually study. Hopefully I am on the road to recovery! I hope and pray! At least I feel happy through all this!

Anyway, MERRY THOUGHTS, MERRY THOUGHTS! Christmas is a good cure too!

I love to pay it forward. The other day going through Starbucks, I did it for the five cars behind me. When the clerk asked if I wanted my receipt, I quickly said no!!! LOL! I admit I do it for selfish reasons--it feels wonderful to do so. When my four kids were younger, I could not have done it, but so many people helped ME out. I don't feel guilty when I can't do it every day; but I do feel great when I can! I think I told you guys about the young man who paid for our Valentine's Day dinner (can't remember if it were last year or the year before). He also paid for another couple's dinner at the same time, plus his own. That was so special, and I remembered how I felt. I just want others to have that same happy feeling. I honestly wish there were a way to do it more often and to pay it forward HERE!!! The best we can ALL do is to continue to treat each other with respect because paying it forward does not have to involve money--that's the good thing. We can offer our services to those who need them, use our talents. Like what Star and MC do and what CAH does when she babysits. Tutoring is another way to pay it forward!

I love working in a place were people come first.

Harlowe Jean and I just took a nice walk. It was brisk out, but sunny and beautiful at the same time!! We walked along the outer edge of our development, near the woods. This was our view. So peaceful!
