No tracking, got sick, gained 5 pounds
Tuesday, March 26, 2013
I stopped tracking two weeks ago. The first week I was still doing okay with portion sizes and proper choices. I was kind of sick then, but the second week I gave illness a free for all and even brought out the Easter candy.
That equals 5 pounds gained.
I'm still not going to track today, but I will be more mindful of my choices. I have plenty of fruits and veggies. I am able to stand a little longer today, but am still prone to dizziness because of the liquid in my head (especially the ears). If nothing clears up in a couple of weeks I'll have to see my doctor, if everything clears up, I'll still see my doctor. I'm just tired of having to say "what" to everyone because they mumble into my injured ear.
The other part of the weight gain is that I haven't been able to move much. Mom was surprised I moved for 5000 steps the other day and that was only because I went out to do some shopping, mostly leaning on a cart.
The weather is finally starting to improve. I'm starting to see grass and roofs again. The roof on the garage that I can see has about half it's snow melted off it's roof already. The low part of the path in the park is really flooded. The ducks are back and I saw a robin the other day, perched on the tree outside my window just looking at me.
I may actually start to be able to open windows soon! I heard something about 50 degrees this weekend! I had the kids help start cleaning the house. The carpet is clean thanks to my son and dishes have been kept up with a little because of my daughter. I may have to have them do more cleaning today between science experiments.
Here's to a better week full of healing and good food choices!
