Usually I am a motivated cooker and love to fuss in the kitchen. In the last two weeks,whether it is the humidity, busy, or abundance of raw fresh stuff, just not feeling the fun. Maybe it is cooking for one.. regardless plugging on, and alcohol free.
I have bad news on last blood work, counts low, and hopefully not needing a transfusion.
Repeating tests Thursday and headed to Cleve Clinic for my quarterly check. Praying no
problems, just no time in my life for a setback.

i've survived 6 difficult, emotionally stressful, weeks, some of which was self induced. Recognizing that I can make mistakes, not wallowing in self-pity, praying for understanding all is within me. I recovered from the weight gain, and am 3 pounds below my last May weight. I am 4.9 pounds from 200 total weight loss and focused, clean, and moving on. The
bruise on my hip is still very bad and sleep restless but much better with an improvement every day. I am once again excited to move forward, and optimistic for what the future may hold. I read today that 60 is the new 40. Wow would that be nice.

After struggling through the month of May, and still not 100 per cent, can't hear in right ear and on two antibiotics, I now know that May was destined to challenge me. I have been confident, bordering on overconfident, went backwards 4 pounds but I am puffy and truly believe it is water gain. Although I have been lax at log in, I carry with me Spark thoughts daily, I will not give up my progress, and allow food to control my life. More particularly, I will not allow relationships to overshaddow my goals and I will not regress to random drinking.
Although not an alcoholic and go days and months without drinking, I am a social animal and recognize the potential to overeat when I drink, bourbon.
It is a good day.... worked at desk, then showered, did my nails, hair, ate low end of range, did minimal exercise, as my balance is off; but all tolled, my faith and The grace of God is watching over me. Tomorrow I am taking my cracked Ipad for repair, another story, having breakfast with a friend, and babysitting for my Grandaughter. Love to all of you who sent me the messages on my last Blog, giving me encouragement and lots to think about.

During my Mom's 12 day visit, I met with some challenges and found myself attempting to cook for her, for myself, and in that time landed a new client that turned out to be 2 new clients. I spent 65 hours tied to my desk, was not sleeping great, cat tortured Mom during this visit, and then went right into prep for the 90th birthday celebration this past Sunday, cooking up a storm. I began having nosebleeds, not good with anemia, and got a referral for cauterization. Then, developed the worst sinus infection, swollen eyes, and then my feet began to swell, a combination of overtired, excess sodium, processed meats, several glasses of party wine, and having my feet down at the desk without enough breaks. The swelling precipitated knee pain and I can barely walk. Now throw in my daughter in law blowing up her very nice car, requiring engine work, needing a ride to/from work, and that about sums up my fiasco. Oh yes, and my Granddaughter is getting off the bus here 2 days a week, and needs fed, homework guidance, etc. On Monday am I got up 4.6 pounds heavier, swollen, and miserable. I used my mirror thing....you don't control me, I control you! Personal visualization and have come on track. I am voiding every 20-45 minutes, antibiotics done, off Tylenol, upped water to 10, cut caffeine in 1/2, sleeping 9 hrs, breaking from desk every hour, and food on track. I broke a 109 day login streak totally upsetting me, but I get it. Life tested me and I did not make good decisions. It's been months since I caved, and don't plan on the events repeating themselves. Tomorrow is day 4 in the return of sanity and good judgement. I am optimistic about reaching the -200 lost very soon.
