I am feeling kind of depressed today. I have lost my energy and it is frustrating. I so want to exercise more, but pain keeps me from doing what I should. I want to walk along way, and do all the strength exercises I was previously doing. I think to some degree it is just laziness. I have to be honest with myself.
After I see the Dr. Thurs. perhaps I will have more time. These Dr. Appts. 3 times a week are so time consuming. This week I have 4. In May I see the Dr. about my foot surgery. I think getting my foot surgery over will increase my confidence in myself. My hip is doing great, but I will have to always keep my precautions in effect. The worst being I cannot bend more than 90 degrees. Walking is my only hope. I am anxious for nice weather.
Thanks to all of my wonderful Spark friends, my motivation to keep trying is still there. My eating habits are pretty good. Although, I have to admit, the easter bunny bit me a little. I have been nibbling on a Hershey Dark chocolate bar all week. My present from my granddaughter. I haven't finished it yet. I notices when I ate 3 squares of it I got a little nauseated. Not used to sweets anymore.
I wish I had something interesting to write, but outside of my daughters art shows, life has been pretty boring.
I did really well til my hip got bad. I got down to 148 pounds which was great. Now I am back at square one, and wonder if my age is working against me. My Dr. said may weight is stable. I don't want it to be. I can do better. I pray God sends summer weather soon.
I wish all of you a great week.
