Oh god.
THIS.
I used to keep them really really cold in ice at the gym and then POUND ONE red or blue one right after working out

Like aww yea I feel so good feel those electrolytes powering my body and helping me recover.

..nope.
I felt good because I just worked out and I really love sugar

So my epilepsy has been kind of..all over the place since I'm taking a break from meds.
And my doctor and nutritionist recommended Paleo because supposedly it might help

Womp I really want to try it and I'd like to be able to be better without meds


..but I really like pasta too..

It sucks. I'm sorry.
I really like pasta too. But I really REALLY like not being sick all the time more. You might find that's the case for you.
I'm not one of those PALEO CURES EVERYTHING kinds of people, but I sure have heard a lot of anecdotal stories of people who went paleo and a bunch of things cleared up for them. I think it's worth trying. You never know... and wouldn't that be amazing if it DID work?

Let's be real. Not a day goes by that I don't crave something I'm not supposed to have at LEAST once a day. I made a tumblr blog devoted entirely to posting those cravings. OREOS. FOREVER.
It's routine now to just be like "Sigh. I wish I could eat that." and move on with my life. The cravings haven't gone away, I'm just used to not giving into them now. It's not much different than "Waaaah I don't WANNA go to the gym!!" and going anyway. Discipline sucks and is boring - but if boring means you don't have seizures anymore, boring can be kinda awesome.

Cleaned off the camera for my daughter's graduation the other night. I saw a pic of me from Christmas Eve 2012. Here is my "before/after" or "before/work in progress". The picture on the right was taken at the Special Olympics this past weekend.

My mom's doing a weight loss program/nutritionist thing and has lost 12 pounds the last 5 weeks, my sister joined the local gym yesterday.

Time to get off my ass and get to the grind. I'll be going to the nutritionist once I've got insurance and then the gym soon after.

Go, Eddie!

Despite having planned to go to the gym every day this week, ride schedule got really messed up. Sorry, can't be at the gym for 6+ hours at a time.

So, I went Monday. Did 15 miles in a little over an hour on the bike. I want to be doing other things, too, but I'm having major anxiety problems doing anything but the bike. Even things I already know, like some of the weight machines. :\

Back up to 213.6, which is super frustrating. Hopefully going grocery shopping tomorrow, and can actually stock up on good foods again.
