well, the ride is bumpy, but at least my butt doesn't hurt.
i have the good, the bad, and the ugly to share, but really, it's all part of the ride, and i'm persevering. i feel a bit more like the tortoise than the hare right now, but i'm here!
last week was a bit of a derailment - while the heart is healthy, and the BP meds seem to be a better fit, i found out that i have a mass on my parathyroid. next steps are still unknown, but likely at least a biopsy and/or surgery. i'm bummed, but i'm not, because from what i've read so far, this could be the source of the high blood pressure and fatigue that's kept me struggling over the past month.
more on that later...keeping fingers crossed...
so while i didn't cook last week, i planned dinners and bought the food. i give myself 5 bonus points for the plan, and my "fresh start" monday to pick up and actually do the cooking this week. dinner 2 is in the crockpot as i write.
i didn't do any heavy cardio last week, but i did get out and weed one night, and i took my usual loop at work one time. and the cool thing, which i'm rather proud of, was bringing home the free weights and medicine ball; hubby and i are both using them in the evenings to get those 10 minutes in.
ironically, the funniest part of this week has been how much i've sweated, albeit at the wrong times, for the wrong reasons. so my weight is about the same, and my pants fit better after a week of eating out (which, blech, i don't recommend).
i've been light on SP, but here nonetheless, soaking up the positive vibes, knowing that things will look up, and in the meantime, the little things are the most important. perseverance feels like a big word, but i guess that's because it's a big job.
