It’s that time of the week again over at the Sisterhood to hop on the scale! Today’s results are just “eh.” I had a loss but only .4 lbs which brings me down to 144. I know that if I can just kick this soda thing it will help so much but holy cow I just can’t seem to do it! I feel like its become my security blanket as there are times where I feel like I have lost so much (favorite food-wise) that its the one thing that I love that I can still have. Pretty poor logic huh? Especially when I factor in how much more my body will benefit from drinking water. So its just another battle.
I went running for the first time on Monday in I don’t know how long. I’m still sore (I think I strained my left hip)! I’m going to try to stick to long, brisk walks for a week or two then try to get back to the C25K. Plus with Hubs going out of town next week, I won’t be able to run in the mornings anyways so I will try to do some light exercise in the am while Abby sleeps and also go for a long walk with her in the evenings with a pit stop at the playground -which we both benefit from!
I also have set up an appointment to see my doctor about my anxiety. I couldn’t get in to see here until the 29th but I made a call this morning to see if I could get in earlier so I will see the NP today and then follow up with my doctor on the 29th. Its just not fair to my family and those around me to just let it go any longer. This last week it has been really bad and my fuse seriously is like 1 nanometer long. I just get so overwhelmed and either cry, lash out, or wan to hide in a dark hole somewhere and it has seriously sucked all of the energy and vitality out of me. I’m ready to be ME again (there will be a post coming regarding this).
