Well the last weekend of the challenge is here. I am grateful that I participated in this one. A number of things have become clearer for me as a result. I am disappointed with my weight but that is not new for me. I am disappointed healthwise that I am no closer to the answer of why I have gall/kidney stones. Why is there a growth on my kidney? And am not sure if the complicated UTI is gone. I do see my Dr. in December though so that may help.
Life continues to race along and like always I race to catch up.....with 2 boys moving home this month my exercise space is gone except the weight room and I cannot use weights right now. I need to find a space to do the other stuff, WAP or TaeBo. This weekend perhaps. If we get our renos done I will use one of those rooms, but half the house is ripped apart. I promised myself that I would not let it rock me.
I have learned that I make poor choices when I am totally stressed - so stress reduction is important. I work long hours so need to prepare better for those days. I eat a lot of raw food so I don't watch portions very well - will work on this more. I have days where I eat processed food rather than bringing something from home and I need to look at this more closely. All in all I did learn a few things. I will be happy when I can exercise again without discomfort.
