Motivated Monday

Last night I went to bed excited because today would be Monday. why would Monday be exciting?    Because,  it marks the beginning of a new week for me.  Now, I know some say Sunday is the first day of the week and for some it may be but lets go with Monday OK?

Every Monday I will be doing a positive report!!  I was so excited about it I had to ask for positive words that start with an M--my friends at Everything Sewing came through with a lot of them for me.   This last week just hasn't been that good and then I tend to want to get down and we all know nothing good comes from feeling down.   I have constant pain  from acid reflex/heartburn.  Caused from the radiation treatments and although there is medication for it,  it doesn't work all that good.  so then I can't eat or drink.  OK, so enough of the negative 'stuff'

My goal for this week is to gain a pound a day.  This morning I weighed in at 113.5   I would love to be 118 next Monday.  that will build my white blood cells my energy level will bounce back and everything will be good.

  1. I have a few extra pounds I would love to send to you! Since that probably won't work too well, I will cross my fingers and hope this week brings all you seek and much more! Have a great week.

  2. Wow, we if only we could all send you those last five pounds that just won't go away! Glad you are feeling better and things are looking up. How about whenever you are thirsty you can drink a big milk shake made with ice cream? Just looking at something like that puts pounds on me!!!

    1. Bunny, milkshakes do work, well at least they are something I can drink.

  3. Oh, Bunny, the ice cream sounds lovely...but the very worse thing for my reflux. Nonie, I know some drs fail to suggest to their patients to wait for 30 minutes before putting food into stomach after taking an anti reflux medication, likewise with Carbonated beverages...they are a huge no-no for some. Not all people, but for some.

    I love the positive day on Mondays...Now I'm curious, what shall Tuesday be? Tempting??? Love to you Nonie on a beautiful summer afternoon. Rosieq

  4. I sure hope you reach your goal. Like the others, I wish I could send you some of mine. :)
    Have you tried the Visalus shakes? We have used them to try and lose weight, but they can also be used to gain weight. The powder taste like cake mix, and they are full of nutrition. We mix them with milk and yogurt plus some fruit. Very tasty too!
