One step at a time

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

On Sunday August 10, I developed a "floater" in my left eye, so I went to the ophthalmologist. He says no retinal detachment, so that is positive, but the darn floater is driving me nuts. It looks like a fruit fly following me everywhere.

So, I ordered prescription sunglasses to help cut it out of my vision while driving.

I go back for a recheck in late September.

This past Monday I began full time at work. First time working 40 hours since 2008.
My focus has been:
Stay hydrated.
Log in everyday.
Wear my fitbit, and walk as much as I can.
Eat sensibly.
Eat more adequately at lunch.
Get to bed earlier and aim for more sleep.
Rest my eyes.

That is my current plan. As much as I want to lose weight, I need to focus on better sleep, and staying healthy while tackling full time work. Balance is key.

    Having full time work actually makes it easier to stick to a plan. You will have no wasteful time to sit in front of the TV or read and snack the same hours as before. The longer you are idle, the more trouble you can yourself get into. Busyness has helped me a lot.
    I just hope the long hours do not affect your back or any other area. If you can, take regular get up and walk and stretch breaks, it will make you feel better from all the sitting.
    Wishing you all the best -you can do this!

    I hope your vision clears up. That sounds extremely annoying.

    Great goals for going back to work! If you can manage it, my doctor gave me some great advice: Never eat your lunch at work. Pack your lunch, and when your lunch time arrives walk 10 minutes away from the building, sit and eat, then walk 10 minutes back. (I had a 30 minute lunch.) There's 20 minutes of walking logged right there! It's also great for stress levels.

    It will all get easier as the days go by. At first it is overwhelming but it is like riding a bike-it will come back and you will find ways to make things easier for yourself.
    I just worked for a month this summer and that was a challenge. I had not worked in over 10 years so just about the time I got into the routine, I was done but it was great to challenge myself and know that I could still do it!.
    Praying the floater clears up soon.
