Weight today was 196.0 and 42.9 % body fat, I think that is a decrease, I can't actually remember right now.

Lunch was cheese Bagel Bits because I didn't wake up until after 12:30 pm (I actually originally woke up at 8 am, but then felt really dizzy, like fall over dizzy, so I went back to lay down and fell back asleep).  I also had a can of Cherry Coca Cola.

We went to IKEA once I was feeling a bit better and I ate one of their Chicken strips and one piece of their wonderful Chocolate cake.  The cake also helped with my IBS as, at least for tonight, I am not constipated.

Dinner was a Cheddar Potato Bake and Cherry Coke can.

Due to the massive amount of dizziness that was going on I didn't actually do an exercise routine so we will just use the walk around IKEA as my exercise for the day.  I may be limiting myself to just the 10 minutes on the treadmill each day since I have been getting dizzier and dizzier ever since trying to exercise more again (even the wii fit has indicated this.)  This just means the weight loss will take a bit longer, but I need to be safe at the same time.

Last night was really long for two reasons; the first one as the gas was still pretty bad so Kevin got some new medicine that seems to have helped a good bit in deflating my stomach, at least now it doesn't stick out farther than my chest.  The second reason one of the cats that means the world to me passed away.

On to the food: Both of the meals I have had today have been the Potato cheddar bake, mainly because it is a comfort food for me and I have been really sad and crying over Tiger.  I also had a can of Cherry Coke with each.

Exercise was the normal routine minus the yoga and strength training because I have been feeling unsteady and the wii fit confirmed that I was much less steady today.

Weight was 196.4 and 43.8% body fat so it did actually go down some and I think it may have been the gas/constipation I was feeling.

Last night Kevin did get me a coffee and fries and along with the gas medicine helped my stomach deflate.

Due to a late start to the day from a migraine/IBS attack last night everything pre-lunch is getting rolled into one blog post.

First about last night.  I started with mental fogging that quickly turned into a migraine, I had fogged a little earlier during the day but had managed to fight through it so I was surprised when it returned so quickly.  Normally when I get the mental fogging it lasts a day or two and then I have a really bad migraine, this one lasted all night, but I also got a migraine within an hour of the fogging starting so that was unusual.  I was also having IBS problems due to a massive gas build up in my stomach.  Generally for people gas is not comfortable, but because my nerves are so sensitive in my digestive system, I was in tears and could barely move for most of the night.  Kevin went out at 1 am to get some over the counter medicine for me to take and while I can still feel a lot of the gas, it did manage to knock it down to a more tolerable level.

As for weight, I had a massive surprise this morning when it was 197.4 with 44.6% body fat, I didn't think I ate that many calories yesterday, so unless the gas is hiding a massive constipation (which it may be because not much has come out over the last week) I am not sure how I gained 3.4 pounds in one day.

For breakfast I had garlic chicken with pasta and corn; sort of healthy but it was in a meal kit, although I do not know how many calories it was.  I also had one 12 oz can of Cherry Coke because we are trying to step me down, starting with two cans a day and then later it will be just one and then we will get smaller cans.

For exercise it was a good day today, I did 10 minutes at 2 mph on our treadmill which I haven't used in ages do to lack of stability.
Then I also did the wii fit plus again, which I had not originally expected to do, but after an hour break from the treadmill I felt I should give it a try.  As promised yesterday, I wrote down every game I did.

Balance Games: Soccer Heading (I was really bad at this, 18 points total), Ski Slalom, and Ski Jump: It may be a while before I do the Soccer game again because it does not seem to realize which side I am leaning toward and when it does it over corrects.

Training Plus: Perfect 10 and Island Cycling: I seemed to have a harder time with Perfect 10 than I did yesterday, again, the board did not seem to know which way I was leaning but it is a fun game so I will stick with this one.

Aerobic: Hula Hoop, Basic Step, and Basic Run (the run actually makes my legs hurt, not the muscles, but the bones, I am not sure why that is, but I am 

Yoga: Deep Breathing, Half Moon, Warrior, Tree, and Sun Salutation

Strength: Single-Leg Extension, Push-up and Side Plank (I cheat on this one), Torso Twist, Jackknife, and Lunge.

The Yoga and Strength training have been set up as a routine so those should stay the same every day.  I will also probably do the same Aerobic and Balance games (minus the Soccer one) every day so unless I say I added or took something out, when I say I did the Wii Fit, this is the list I mean.

Just so I don't forget before I have a late breakfast.

Weight this morning is 194 (down .4 pounds)
% of body fat is 43.2

Something else I need to get down is the body fat, hopefully exercising will help that. I was not able to do the wii fit balance games last night because of another coughing attack. I am going to try again this morning after I have had something to eat because currently the room is shaking and I am hoping it is just from lack of food.

Oh, dinner last night was chicken nuggets my husband made (along with a migraine because he accidentally set off the smoke detector using the oven) two glasses of sprite because the nuggets were too peppery and then a bag of rye chips because I love them and I rarely get them.

As the title of this entry says, this is not a New Years resolution, but at the title of the journal says, I am trying to get healthy.  For a lot of people they would look at this as a "I want to lose weight" blog and they would be 1/3 right.  I need to lose 74.4 pounds according to the weight I just took two minutes ago and that might help me feel all around healthier, but it will not solve one of my problems and it may not solve the other one.  My plan is to list everything I eat during the day and all exercise I do on this journal as my way of making myself more accountable.  As I am hoping to post with each time that I eat and/or exercise, my first food/exercise post will be tomorrow morning.  Yesterday I had some pork, potatoes, lasagna, garlic bread, and one glass of cherry coke (I am slowly removing that from my diet).  I have not eaten everything I will eat today because I had a late start (1 pm) which was cheddar potato bake and one glass of cherry coke; while at Costco I sampled half a mozzarella stick and one small toll house chocolate chip cookie.  I haven't been able to exercise because I am still getting over a sinus infection although I am hoping to try some wii fit balance games tonight.

I may not be able to do exercise everyday and the reason for that is the next 1/3 of the reason for this journal, I have chronic daily migraines, frequently brought on by bright lights and computer screens, but sometimes I have no idea why they occur.  That makes writing in the journal an interesting challenge as I can only spend so much time on the computer each day before I have to stop because of a developing migraine.  I tried writing in a notebook but since I am not accountable to anyone but myself they usually ended before they got past the first day.  So what migraine related do I plan to do with this journal, mainly just talk about them after I have had one and talk about mental fogging problem that I have related to the migraines.  There may be days when I do not post because of the mental fogging, that for me is almost worse than the migraine because while I may not be in pain, I cannot think enough to string two words together to even begin to form a sentence.  If that happens, I will try to update as soon as I can, but if I miss a day or two, that is most likely why.

The last 1/3 of what I am trying to work on related to my health is my IBS-A that I have been dealing with for longer than the migraines.  It has also been suggested that the IBS has made me more prone to having migraines because my nervous system is already showing a low pain threshold with the IBS.  Basically, when I eat, I feel every muscle in my digestive system working, and it can be very painful.  The "A" means that my digestive system will either stop moving or will move too quickly in response to that pain.  This can make going anywhere a test of nerves in more than one sense.  It is not something you really get over, but some people have found that with a controlled diet and healthy lifestyle (like running) they find they have few problems with it.
