Slacker

I don't like being a slacker, but that's what I've been doing lately...at everything it seems.  I've slacked at blogging, slacked at getting started fundraising for Great Strides, slacked at cooking dinner, slacked at working out, slacked at keeping the house clean.  The only thing I haven't slacked at is my Cayston treatments...I'm currently in week 3.

I have lost my motivation to work out...the only thing keeping me at the gym is my scheduled personal training sessions.  I've gone back in to my bad snacking habits...and of course, it isn't healthy snacking! I've put on a few of the pounds I had lost which makes me more frustrated, then I slack off even more... its a vicious cycle.  I did better when I could wake up and go straight to the gym before doing anything else...I'd have energy for the day and it gave me motivation not to snack, and if I did snack, at least I had burned some extra calories that morning.  But, unfortunately I work in the mornings now and just don't have motivation to hit the gym in the afternoon.

This has turned into a depressing blog - sorry!  I have big plans to create a healthy menu for dinners (and plan them in advance), clean out my panty of all the junk thats holding me back (mostly Sour Patch Kids and Reese's Cups), and get my butt back in the gym.  

Lent is starting this week and thats just the motivation I need.  I can't cheat on God!! I'm not just giving up Sour Patch Kids this year, I'm giving up all my sweet tooth cravings.  Even as I type that I'm freaking out - I've become dependent on my junk!!  

So wish me luck as I get back on track!!  I want to run some more 5Ks in the future so I need to start preparing!

  1. Just remember-slacking happens! All of us cannot be perfect at everything. One thing that I have noticed with myself, if I start to well with one thing-I get more motivation to excel in other things. Also-if the one thing that you aren't slacking in is your treatments, than you should not be so hard on yourself!

  2. So Maria and I have been addicted to Sour Patch Kids!!! When I buy another bag I think of your addiction. I hope you get back on track soon cyster! Slacking is human nature its just how long we let it happen for that is the key.

    I hope you are feeling well :)

    I am going to try and message you through this google/blogger thing. I have a question for you :)

SmartVest Review & CF Appointment

Well, here is the long awaited official review of my new SmartVest SQL.  I don't have any current or updated vests to compare this too, so my feed back is based upon what I like/dislike versus the old and out-dated vest.

Pros:
Weight - it is MUCH lighter than my ancient Hilrom Vest.  By all means, it isn't light but definitely a great improvement from my older model.  I can at least carry it myself!Comfort of vest - the fabric is much softer and less scratchy when wearing it.Technology - it has a digital screen, so I can set the time and know for sure how long I'm using it (the old one had a knob to turn).  Also, I can set different programs based on how long I want to use it, etc.  It's quieter!!  Will still doesn't enjoy watching TV with me while I vest, but I don't have to turn the TV to its max volume!  And, the dogs aren't scared of this one as much!There is only 1 hose...so I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…

CF Updates

Greetings friends!

I had the pleasure of going to my quarterly CF appointment on Tuesday.  It was originally scheduled for 11/15 but being that my sinus funk is still lingering around, I wanted to move it up a bit.  (the original funk started here)

I finished my round of Cipro on 10/29.  And still had a head full of congestion, sore throat and ears. Bummer.  I thought I was starting to feel better for a split second, but it didn't last.  Thankfully, my lungs were still feeling good :)  We were at our cabin in WV that weekend and I skipped my vest and HTS, but thankfully didn't suffer.

So, I headed in to the doc on Tuesday.  My PFTs are holding stable so that makes me happy!  More on that in a minute.  During my exam, she could see there was still fluid in my ears along with my red throat.  Plus my face was super puffy and my eyes felt as if they were going to pop out of my head.

So, the plan of attack is this:

1) Take Levaquin 750mg for 14 days
2) Get back on my Claritin dail…

CFF Blog Post

I was honored when the CF Foundation approached me to write a blog about our decision to not have children.  As a reader, you know how much we love our dogs and feel fully blessed by having them.  So, why not share it with the whole CF community?!!

Check out the blog post here.


I was shocked to see how many responses appeared on the FB.  We had likes, loves, wows and sad faces...thankfully not mad faces.

I enjoyed reading the comments...of course most everyone was very supportive and shared their decisions on having or not having kids.  But in typical social media fashion, people take things to the extreme or can't keep rude thoughts to themselves.  So, I wanted to take a minute to give some feedback.


1) I'm 99% sure we would have came to this decision even if I didn't have CF.  Every couple makes a decision whether or not to expand their family.

2) We aren't irresponsible in our delay of having Will tested for the genes...its called birth control people.  And EVERYONE…
