Last night, I had a hard time getting to sleep. As I tossed and turned, it occurred to me that it was the eve of the anniversary of my stepmom's passing away. Then I really had a hard time getting to sleep!! That night 2 years ago, I didn't sleep at all. I was flooded with memories of that heartbreak and thoughts of how much I have missed her, all the events in my life that I sorely wish she were here to enjoy with me! It's been a downer of a day!
Despite my emotions and general lack of energy, I went up (workout space is on the 3rd floor here) and got my exercise done. I was really pleased to find I could use a heavier weight on many of the moves. I felt the sadness and lethargy kind of fall away as I focused on the movements, and felt SO much better by the end. That was nice. I almost want to go do it again!
Later, I came across a pair of shorts from a few summers (and sizes) ago that I'd forgotten I had. Just for the heck of it, I tried them on. I got them zipped up, and though it wasn't a great fit, they went ON! Wouldn't have been able to do that 17 pounds ago, wahoo!
My eating has been great, I've been doing pretty well staying within my ranges. I'm lower than usual on protein today and can feel it, but I'm still right on track. Clinging onto keeping my simple steps in line, at least for today! Ugh. Can't wait for bedtime.
