Hello again everyone!
It's been a while yet again for a blog. Life has thrown me some curve balls recently but I think I'm getting where I need to be. I was pleasantly surprised to get on the scale this morning to see a decrease. I've been so frustrated with the lack of weight loss when I've been eating healthier than I've ever eaten. I think I was not eating enough food to be honest. This weekend was kind of a "oh the heck with it" attitude. I didn't track anything, was hoping to be mindful of what I was eating and within range. Surprisingly I made it through with a loss! Granted it was .3 but it put me below 240 pounds for the first time in a very very long time.
A while back I started taking thyroid meds. Synthroid, no generic, and all we've done is increase my dosage. I'm still constantly tired. No energy. Lethargic in a lot of cases. Saturday was my last dose. Yesterday I was just plain irritated and nothing snapped me out of being irritated. I snapped at Shari, my youngest, which is extremely rare for me.
So, today yes I'm sleepy, but I didn't sleep very well. I splurged on new sheets for our bed. Satin sheets. They were amazing, but kind of stuck to me a bit last night. So it was a weird night for sleep. However I feel more awake in my brain than I have for months!
As for the lifestyle change, I have a walking partner if I could just meet up with her! She's committed to walking Monday, Wednesday and Friday's. It seems like either she or I have something going on and just cannot make it! It's rather ridiculous! However, we're not giving up and we'll make it when we can.
Goal for the summer? Climb a 14,000 feet in elevation mountain. And if we don't make it that far? That's okay. We'll work toward next year!
