I'm up and down on the scale ...
I'm trying not to get all wacko-a-doodle about it due to knowing I'm doing the best I can at this given point. Admittedly, it's still difficult not to let THAT number define me.
Taking care of me ...
I'm back on my Adrenal program and feeling much much better. Adrenals are amazing!
I switched my thyroid medication from evening to mornings again. I believe my body has now adjusted to the meds so I don't feel like I'm catching on fire after taking it in the morning.
I spoke to Doc today about my meds/supplements. He STRONGLY recommends staying on the Adrenal support ... clearly bad things happen when I go off of them after deciding "I feel better." He also recommends only staying on the thyroid meds for a year and then stopping them for awhile. There's a lot of science behind that ... I won't cover that here. I'll follow his advice instead of my own made up stuff this time. o_O
I am attending classes at the gym on a regular basis and have enjoyed them A LOT. Although I seem to be taking a short break for a hot minute. *SHRUGS* Sometimes I'm just tired and I honor that.
I am getting out and doing things I love again. I tend to be a shut-in when things get a bit much but I've been forcing myself out of the house lately. Sometimes it takes me a hot minute to warm up to the outside world and those who seem to live there but I get to the fun part ... eventually.
Over the weekend I bought new frames. I went vintage! I will have the new pair in two weeks and then I'll post pictures. Yup, I'm excited and a little scared. It's a whole new ME.
Today I went across the street and bought a new dress - an XL. I'll have a photo to post soon enough. That dress in the window was the ONLY reason I crossed the stores threshold. Funny enough ... the sales woman was over the moon about the dress I am currently wearing along with my shoes ... I laugh because I bought both at Good Will when they were having a 50% off sale. Mama loves a discount!!
Oh and last month ... I changed my hairstyle. I went with a more dramatic cut and lets just say I'm having fun with it.
I'm also saying no, no thanks and I'd prefer we do it this way ... amazing how all of those can affect my life. I can be a people pleaser and sometimes passive/aggressive *GASP* so I'm working on just being pleased with me and stopping there. It's a lot less draining.
Best gift received to date ... a 2 hour massage with my favorite massage person of all times. I'm looking forward to that experience!
How's life in your corner of the world?
I'm all about Self-Care right now. It's the only way I'm going to get back to me. And let's face it ... Self-Care is soooooooooooooo important.
