My Fourth Week

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

I have reached my first month on the program. It has had its up and downs, I admit, and unfortunately my weight has remained the same. Then again, it has not gone back up, so that is a positive. Besides, my exercising has greatly been reduced from high aerobics to walking, whenever able. I suppose that deep down I have been feeling a bit more tired every day. Children constantly getting sick with weather changing; house that is fully clean when I go to bed, ends up like a tornado hit it when I wake up; and just the cold rainy weather over all, has left me with a sense of laziness that I keep fighting, but I find my energy level almost drained. Today, I decided to do something different. Normally I feel lazy but still try to keep myself busy even though I still do not exercise, so I decided to give my body a full 24hr to just be lazy. Okay after I finish cleaning the house again, I truly intend to give my body a full resting day. I figured, if my body is always feeling tired and I ignore it, then maybe I am hurting it by always being a buzy-body. So today, I cancelled my usual Wednesday all day errands day, and stood home to try to relax. Never thought it would be this hard to try to do nothing, given that every I try I think of something else I can do. However, my goal is that if I can give my body the rest it seems to need then maybe tomorrow I can go back to trying to increase my activity. I hope in the end this thought process does not backfire on me. Either way, I am glad that I have been on this program for 1 month now, and hopefully when I write my blog in May 2013, I can successfully state that I have reached my goal once and for all.

    You might want to check and see if you are eating the right amount of calories. I know that what SP lists for my calorie range is way too high for my medication induced slow metabolism.
