My mind is messing with me....


Friday, February 22, 2013

I am in a funk this week.

I had monday off and wednesday was a snow day from school.

I got pissed off at a co-worker for assigning me work. I let her and my principal know that the line has been reached. Now back off unless this is a union issue. I am normally willing to help anybody but when asked or I volunteer.

My Calcium serum level increased because I had to take Vitamin D supplements.

I gained one pound last week and did not loose it by this morning.

I've increased my water intake to 22 to 26 cups daily, and I wake up thirsty.

I did not meet my exercise goal or start an exercise program this week.

I walked by parking further away and only twice completed my aerobic walk at school. I only did it today so that I would not feel guilty tonight.

I've been watching my calories rather than concentrating on eating healthy. I have high cholesterol and I've been eating,eggs, cheese, subway black ham sandwiches, and the BLT with avocado at Panera.

My cholesterol dropped 20% in six weeks. I should feel good but I don't.

For lunch I did not eat my hard boiled egg and ate the peanut butter with celery sticks instead.

I've been eating to much fruit and only two to three servings of vegetables per day.

I need to stop eating three bananas a day because they are high in sugar.

I wrote this list because I thought it would clear my head. It did not. If any body reads this today, I hope something made you happy this week. I know "we can do it."

    Did you get time to be out in some sunshine? Lack of that natural D can impact mood. I used to live in Juneau where it rained nearly every day and sought daylight when I could.

Keep moving forward. I, too, have set myself back by making poor choices this week and last. I need to keep pushing, too.

  Have you had an A1C done in your blood work? That's a lot of water. It could indicate that you have diabetes. An A1C will go back and look at your blood sugar levels over the last three months. It's the most effective way of diagnosing diabetes. I agree with the others, look at all the positve things you are doing. And it's one small step at a time, one small change at a time. Keep your chin up!!!

    We all have weeks we are in a funk. Keep making little changes and they WILL add up. dropping the cholesterol 20% in six weeks is awesome!! Be proud of that. What will help you the most is being proud of what you accomplished and learning from what you haven't accomplished but not beating yourself up over it. I used to be a perfectionist until I realized nobody is perfect and all it served to do was make me always feel like a disappointment. I know many of us have that problem and if we can get away from that and learn to brush off the bad weeks as just that a bad week it will take us far!

    Try not to get too down on these things, although I know that it can be difficult. Just chalk it up as "one of those weeks" and move on to the next one. I'd say that lowering your cholesterol 20% in six weeks is a major victory, don't sell it short! Concentrate on the things that you did right and try to expand on those instead of lamenting the things that you didn't do right, you can't go back in time and change them so just try to learn why certain things didn't get done or why you made certain choices so you can be better prepared for next week.
