This week has had its ups and downs. I’m feeling better- mentally and physically. Hubster and I talked a lot this week about my family, the separation, our relationship and that helped with all the emotional weight I’ve been carrying. Hubs is the best.
I have no idea how much I’ve lost, or if I’ve lost. The scale and I are still on a break. I had issues with an eating disorder in high school. Obsessively stepping on the scale multiple times a day was the beginning. I’m trying to me healthy, not just smaller. That’s not a road I want to go down again. Been there, done that, I’ve got the emotional scars and baggage. No thank you!
I’m pretty confident I’ve lost at least something. *Caution! Potential TMI!* If I can take my jeans out of the dryer, put them on with no problems while having my period, something is going right! That was the perfect pick me up I needed. PCOS and treatment have really sent my body on an adventure. I’m now in week two of my period (uuuuuugggggghhhhhhhh!) and I’ve felt bloated, crampy and achy every single day. Being able to put my pants on with no issues was exactly what I needed!
I’ve upped my water intake to the point where I feel like I’m floating. I’ve been attempting to cut out most of the caffeine I’ve been drinking, but migraines have slowed that process. I’ve just started double fisting with water in one hand and caffeine in the other.
My work schedule and family obligations did make it easy to make multiple meals over the weekend, but I went grocery shopping with healthy, easy to make, eat on the go nutritious foods in mind and ate that throughout the week.
I started the week well with exercising more often and longer, but I think I overdid it a bit. My hips were soooooo sore. Nordic Track-ing was sidelined and I did a lot more sit ups, crunches kind of exercises.
My appointment with the doctor was cancelled last week, but I was able to reschedule for this coming THursday. I’ll ask for the referrals to a specialist and nutritionist then. I don’t know what they’re going to say, but it can’t hurt to get more information.
It was a great week last week. I’m feeling healthy and happy. I have zero complaints this week. I hope you all have an awesome Monday!
