Day 393 - Maintaining
Wednesday, July 17, 2013
Good morning, all!
I know, I know, I haven't written anything for a while.
I know, I know, for me blogging is a great way to keep accountable as well as keep my mind focused on the task at hand (namely, continuing a healthy lifestyle, posiitve attitude, and the side effect of those two things which is weight loss.)
I know, I know, I'm a delinquent.
I spent all of the last two weeks since the Independence Day holiday pretty much focused on work. I did pretty well keeping myself motivated to go for my lunchtime walks and I think I've kept my food in check (except for the one day where I had two dinners of Taco Bell AND McDonalds...) and I think my attitude has been pretty good, too.
Still, that doesn't replace the comraderie and support that I've missed from sharing my blogs!
I think I just haven't blogged because I don't have very much in the way of success to share - and not much new to complain about in terms of challenges.
I'm still in the land of doing nothing thanks to the air bubble in my eye. I'm a terrible person because I have pretty much asked all of the regular concerned people (family, close friends) to stop asking how my eye is doing until August. I did it because, well, talking about it makes me feel like I'm whining and I don't have any good news to report there, either. My eye is still in my head. It's still substantively full of air. I still can't see normally out of half of it and it's horrible in bright light. See, look, I just went on a rant right there thanking about it. It's exhausting to think about and I feel like I don't put on my most positive, graciuos self when I talk about it.
Last night was the first meeting of the Weight loss study I've made it to in two months. (Since May, I think.. I think I went in May?!) and the good news is I've essentially maintained. 2lbs up. That's not terrible given the circumstances and the steroids.
Confession time: I didn't do the 4th of July race. I just couldn't. I'm not glad I didn't do it; but, I'm not going to focus on my reasons. I just feel very insecure at the moment. I just want my life back to normal.
Scary confession time: I will walk around DragonCon half blind before I walk around it in my glasses. Truth.
Alright, it's almost walk time. I hope you guys have been more successful than I have been lately; but, as the saying goes - maintaining is better than gaining!
