Well, I've had a glimpse this past week and half of what it's like to be hard of hearing. As the ear infection in my left ear began to clear up, I got one in my right ear. What luck! It was my first time ever having this problem and wow... it threw me off way more than I thought it could. The pain is gone now, but I'm still waiting for my ears to clear out so that I can hear properly again. Right now things sound kind of muffled.
My weight is still on the decline, little by little, since I stopped obsessing over the calorie count. Listening to my body's needs has helped me adjust the proportions of my meals in a way that makes more sense for me and my daily activities. For example, I find that I need a heartier breakfast than I was previously allowing myself. I also have found that because of this, I am satisfied with a smaller dinner.
My ear problem and a ridiculous amount of rain has prevented me from biking to work since last week. I'm getting back in the saddle first thing tomorrow morning! A cool side note -- the company that I work for put in a bike rack after they found out that I and one other person would be biking to work. How accommodating!
I hope you're all doing well and staying on track!
