The end of the funky funk

Monday, July 13, 2009

I always know I'm entering into a better state of mind when I feel compelled to clean my apartment. Believe me, it needed it. It still needs work, but I feel confident that tonight I'll be able to pull out the Swiffer and mop the floor. I don't have that much floor space, after all... I've done all of the hard work, in doing my laundry and just getting stuff put away. That's the hard stuff. Now it's just a matter of continuing to keep things looking decent by exerting a little effort every day so it doesn't get so bad...

I also feel ready to jump back on the wagon and get my weight loss going. I've done the hard part - I've set myself up for success. Now comes the "maintenance" - just the little things that must be accomplished each day to keep things going in the right direction.

Also... I'm going on a fast. Not to jump start any weight loss, but for my digestive health. On Saturday night, I woke up around 3 in the morning with horrible stomach cramps and ended up on the toilet for about an hour. Not good. I feel like it was my body telling me to STOP putting crap in myself! So, I'm going on a "fast," and by that I mean I'm just going to put bland, easy-to-digest things in my body for a couple of days just until my bowels start cooperating with me again.

Lalo peed in my bed again last night. So tonight I'm going to mop and wash my comforter and duvet. It seems like I've been doing nothing but laundry for the past few days now. I'm also going to sit down with myself and outline a schedule for the rest of the week. I should have done this last night, but I'm going to do it tonight, to figure out what the big things coming are, and to hopefully manage my time better.

I love it when the funk is over. This one that I've been in has been lasting for months. I finally feel refreshed and ready to go.

    Funny you should mention digestive health fast, I just looked up gallbladder/liver flush today on the internet to know how much apple juice I'm supposed to be drinking daily, so I can put it in Nutrition Tracker. I never drink juice so it's a departure from my normal diet, but worth it in order to be able to keep my gallbladder as I lose weight. You know how overweight people have gallbladder surgery? Or overweight people lose ALOT of weight, and THEN have gallbladder surgery? Well I have alot to lose and yeah, I don't want to have gallbladder surgery.

    Ugg I get stomach issues like that too..especially when I eat like crap. That is one benefit to eating better that I enjoy -- much less stomach upset.

    Good luck, have a good week!! :)
