Day two follow-up

Monday, April 01, 2013

Well, I walked home from work today. 1.5 miles in just under 30 minutes. For anyone else, a stroll...for me? Pretty darn good! 3467 steps...great second day!

I didn't sleep much last night, I was so wound up that I didn't get to bed until 11:00. I read for a while, turned off my light and just laid there. *sighs* I was up when my alarm sounded at 4:30 this morning. I got dozy at work but caught a second wind after lunch. After my walk, I am exhausted and all the chores I had planned may get done tomorrow.

I am gonna sleep SO well tonight! In the mean time, I guess I should have a light bite to eat and just a little tv time, then bed....my soft, welcoming, snuggly bed.

Spring has Sprung (at least here in Sin City)

Sunday, March 31, 2013

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...

    Glad to see you feeling a bit more like YOU. Little goals are the way to make solid progress.
I've been going through a temporary set-back, too, so I'm also re-examining.....

Making progress

Sunday, March 24, 2013

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*

Bright Blessings,
Ame

    So glad to know the thyroid situation is leveling off.

Sounds like St Pat's was a day well spent!

I hope you're continuing to feel better and better every day!!

Slow but surely...I think....

Saturday, March 16, 2013

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!

Blessings,
Ame

    Life (and temperature) is always shifting. I hope you find a way to appreciate every bit of it.
