Hot Day in So. California
Saturday, September 07, 2013
I'm beginning to wonder if these scorching 100+ degree days will ever end. It is too hot to go out and too hot to stay in my place, so I veg in front of the air conditioner. Forget getting anything done or exercising - just way too hot. Not like our normal summer weather. It's lasted over 2 weeks and I feel like I will melt. Oh well, this, too shall pass.
I've been pretty good at keeping my calories under control. Weight is under 310 again - it goes down and then I cheat a little and it goes right back up. Apparently the body likes it when I am around 315 or so. And with the groin pain, it isn't easy to walk - even across the room, but I do what I have to. One of these days I'll figure out how to get rid of this, but so far, it comes and goes.
The garcinia helps me feel so good - I sleep well, blood sugar is perfect - about 100. The doctor has scheduled me for a physical in a couple weeks so I'll find out then if I am as healthy as I think I am. Not much stamina, but other than the groin, no pains to speak of.
I was supposed to drive to an event in San Diego today, but decided it wouldn't be a good idea, and now that the day is over, I'm glad I didn't go. I don't need to spend the money or fight the traffic to get down there or back, and my dog would have to stay in the house for 12 hours as I have no one around to watch him in this heat. Normally, I can leave him on the deck all day and he is fine - but not when it is in the 100's. I am going to Apple Valley on Tuesday, if I don't change my mind, and if it isn't too hot, I'll leave him out, but I'll have to see what the temps are in a day or so.
Someone sent me a post that I should stop eating out so much. If once a week with my son and DIL is too much, then I have to resign myself to being heavy as I will not give up my weekly luncheons with them - we usually have just a salad - but it's the only time I have a social life. I live alone and never have company so unless I meet someone at a restaurant once in a blue moon, I might as well live in a cave. Gets boring after a while and I like being with people even though it doesn't happen very often.
Anyway, All is well and I am watching the calories and hoping things will happen so i can get out and about and feel energetic again.
