Back on the horse
Friday, June 14, 2013
So these last couple of months have been very rough. Very. Rough. The medication I was taking to control my multitude of mental disorders also caused me to be super sluggish (on one, I was sleeping 10-14 hours per day), and another one caused me to gain 8 lbs. in a month.
I nearly started crying in the doctor's office when I got on the scale. The good part? I've been off those meds for about 2 weeks now and my weight has stabilized greatly so that I've relost those 8 lbs. This has made me feel much better and confident.
My currents goals are more modest, but doable:
1) Walk or exercise with videos for 1 hour per week. I have a lovely trail outside of my apartment, and it's nice to walk it while listening to an audio book. It's quite peaceful and relaxing, as well.
2) Start tracking my food again on spark people, even if it's only one meal per day. I found that the tracking really helped me loose weight before, BUT I was spending so much time on that that I wasn't exercising. So, here's to a new start. I haven't given up yet!
