10 minutes walking (interval jogging) in place. 879 steps....So begins a streak!

I almost hate to say anything, but I think my desire and motivation are making themselves felt again. I'm so tired of feeling hopeless...It is so not like me. I think this may be a result of my thyroid leveling out...or the whole new beginning of Spring...or...... What ever the reason ( I am so not going to try and figure out the whys and wherefores, I'm just going to DO IT!) I'm rethinking goals and making them a little more realistic and breaking them down into steps. Again, not over think and plan...I can spend hours planning and not doing. (Big problem for me!)
I joined the Bibblemun Track Virtual Trek found in Team Indy Girl. This should be a good start. Joined team 2, 800 steps and 10 minutes of exercise. I can do this. I'll post my progress...

I had a fabulous St. Patrick's day! I went with a friend to Fremont street and saw one of my favorite Celtic bands, and discovered a new favorite band as well! (I even bought a green and white boa to wear! *shakes head* I have no idea what possessed me, it was whim!) I be-bopped to and sang along with all my favorite songs, and bought a CD from my new favorite band. The two best things about being on Fremont Street for St Paddy's day besides the music? Well, first are all bonny lads in (proper) kilts! *sighs happily* The second thing is the people watching! Oh my goodness, they do come out of the woodwork for this holiday!
I am doing a bit better, after gaining a couple more pounds, I am now down. Granted, I'm probably not doing it the best way I can, but I am losing. So my thyroid has finally stabilized. I'm still having odd dreams, but they are not quite as disturbing as recent ones. (I dreamed of my mama last night and woke up happy and sad at the same time.) I'm still going through some bothersome, fluctuating mood swings, so I'm pretty certain I need to see my doctor and check to see if we need to up my medication. (I don't mean to sound like I'm manic depressive! I'm just not my normal obnoxiously cheerful self yet and I miss me!)
All in all I am doing better...I even woke up with a song in my head today, which is always a good sign. I'm going to putter a bit, do a couple of chores and groom my cat.
It's a beautiful morning, and it's going to be a beautiful day. I will make it so! *LOL*

Making progress toward what is normal for me, but oh, I wish it would hurry up~ I am sleeping a bit better, but still having REALLY weird and often disturbing dreams. I am getting very tired at work ( I sit all day at a computer), and am still lacking in motivation.
On the upside, my weight seems to have stabilized. I have not gained in the last week and half. Now I just need to get it heading in the other direction. The co-workers I am closest to told me I am laughing and smiling more easily and often now, which is good. Another couple of weeks and I will be good. In the meantime, I do what I can, relax when I have to, and take one day at a time.
Now we have gone from winter to almost summer in a matter of a couple of days. I love winter, but even I am looking forward to Spring. Of course, I would be happier if we actually had Spring...it was close to 87 yesterday! *LOL* Awww...Come on...what happened to a few weeks at 70-75 degrees? Which to me is PERFECT weather. *LOL*
Oh well, it is beautiful day and I am just chillin'...with a very demanding cat!

Well, another week down and what a week it was! Let me back up a bit...Had a fabulous vacation. Seeing my old friend was the best birthday present I have had in forever! I rented a car for four days and ran around like a crazy woman, enjoying the freedom a well running car affords me. Once I returned the car, I stayed home and relaxed and spoiled myself.
On my first day off, I called my (EX) endocrinologist to see why she has not approved my refills for my thyroid medication. I got the voice mail...again... and left my name and number and a "I'm off for the next week, I'll come in and see you, just please ok a refill until then and call me back for an appointment," message. Yeeah, no phone call. left another message and nothing. By this time I am feeling the result of no thyroid and each day is getting a little worse,til by the time I am back to work, I feel like I am am coming out of my skin, I can't focus, I am not sleeping, having night mares when I do sleep, and have a VERY short temper.(Oh! not to mention that no matter how little I eat, I am gaining weight at an alarming rate....another lovely side effect of no thyroid.) I called my primary care doc (which, had I been thinking straight, I should have done a lot sooner) and left a message for her explaining what was going on and guess what, she sent in a script that evening. Wow!
So now it is a waiting game as I am basically starting all over. It takes 2-4 weeks for the meds to come to full power. In the mean time, I have been told by those nearest and dearest to me to be gentle with myself and relax. Hence the lazy weekend and possibility of a nap or two. I have so much to do and I procrastinate enough as it is. But when I want to do stuff and just can't manage, I hate it...
Okay, enough venting...okay whining! *LOL* I'm gonna be fine, I'm just frustrated after feeling so good for as long as I have now. I will be as patient as I can and do what is best for me now, so I can be the best me later.
Have a wonderful weekend and know that you are loved!
