One, Two, Three...GOAL!!!!!!!!!!

Well I have decided that this round in the hospital I will come up with some goals and stick to them. I want to stand by them this time. I want to get healthier. I don’t know why I slack off after a few weeks. I guess I just start thinking that it isn’t helping so why bother. But I never keep going to see if it actually WILL help. So from now on I am going to!

Here is what I want to accomplish by the end of 2009:

**Be able to walk on the treadmill at 3.0 mph (I made it up to 2.5 then all of a sudden my O2 dropped to 82 and my HR hit 176 so I stopped and now I do 2.2).
**Be off my anti-depressants (momma needs her sex drive back!)
**Lung function at or around 50% (I just wanna breathe and get out of the dam 30s!)

I seem to slack off and just not care after a bit. I can’t be like that. I can’t just ignore my health. If I take care of myself better I can work longer and be more independent longer. I don’t know why I get into health ruts but I need to stop. So this is my proclamation that I WILL get healthy by the end of 09 so that 2010 starts off with a bang!


  1. Goals are good! I'll be in your cheering section rooting for you!


  2. Good for you woman!

    I shall take the batton of laziness and hold it for you. Should you ever decide that you need or want it back, you know where to look:)

    *sits fat ass down on couch*

  3. You seem in the same place as I do right now. I am so determined to get healthy that its insane. I was doing awesome, 2009 came and my health has went down hill FAST.

    I wanted to say one thing in reguards to you baby q& there a reason you can't concieve? I have CF and I have an 18 month old daughter. I have some other infertility issues to and I did it. Also I was heathier during pregnacy and for a year after.

    Anyways, im gonna follow you if thats cool

  4. Sounds great to me! You rock Aimes.

  5. That's awesome. goals are the best for us cfers. We do need some lazy time but with us it gets a hold of us and our health goes to crap. I hope you make it out of the 30's. Mine are at 34% i asked the doc if it was possible to be at 40% but they said i have too much scar tissue. but hey we've proved docs wrong before. lol. get well soon!

  6. Jess I've made the decision to not have children. My health is just not at a place where it is conceivable for me to have one. Whether naturally or adoption. Even if I were to improve my FEV I wouldn't get it high enough to satisfy both me and my dr :(

    Follow away I love new people!!! And congrats on the baby!!! :)

    Thank you all for your comments!!!!

  7. Sounds like a plan! From 30's to 50's?!.....go for it. :)

  8. I know this is an old post. But here it is 2 years later and I am in the exact same position you were in. I gotta get my shit together and quit this half assing my treatments and get to exercising. So I thank you so much for your blog and writing about getting out of the hospital and trying to sustain health. It is very encouraging.
