Catch-up Blog


Monday, May 02, 2011

So....I see I haven't blogged for almost 3 weeks. That's almost 3 weeks of not blogging OR logging!

I am holding steady at about 129-130 pounds. It feels like this is all I can do right now. The thought of going back to 1200 calories per day, feeling famished all the time -- frankly it makes me feel really depressed. And it seems that's what I have to do to drop a few pounds. And I know realistically it would take me probably 6-8 weeks just to get back down five pounds to 125, which is still the top of where I like my weight range to be.

Emotionally I'm just not up for it.

On the home front we are tooling along. 4 more weeks of school and then summer, and I can hardly wait. I need a break from the school routine with the kids for sure. The driving, the homework....it's exhausting.

I just want to make it to Memorial Day -- we are going out of town to visit my sister-in-law and will get to see my new niece again, the first time since New Year's. She has now had two surgeries for her cleft lip and cleft palate, and if the pictures are anything to go by, she is doing well. Can't wait for this trip!

I am still exercising, 45 minutes on the treadmill every day. I literally don't have the energy to even attempt to jog, so I have been playing with the incline to try to increase the intensity of the workout. I am still having problems with insomnia, which doesn't help -- I fall asleep ok but can't seem to STAY asleep. too much on my mind. This makes it hard to find the energy to work out HARD. But at least I am moving on a daily basis!

    A few year ago I started having the sleep problems like you describe. I started reading in bed a little to take my mind off everything and that really helps me to fall asleep. I have an iPod with kindle so I don't need a light to read if my husband is sleeping. I usually have more anxiety at night and sometime in the middle of the day, the things that I worried about seem insignificant! You help me to appreciate how easy I have it now that my kids are grown! I miss my kids though so now I herd cats!
