Days until vacation: 16 - Frustration level at DEFCON 5
Tuesday, June 09, 2015
Wow, so I am on another level of frustration for a multitude of reasons, most of which are not even weight loss related. Most of you read my blog about the wonderful day I had with my family. Maybe it is just me, but I feel like whenever I have a great day or make some great memories, something bad happens that comes and crashes the party in my heart. Usually it is some outrageous bill lol. But this time around my wonderful weekend got followed up by a raging case of conjunctivitis. It started in my right eye and now today has spread into my left. I seriously look like something out of the Walking Dead! And because I'm a decent human being, I've opted to stay home and not spread it all over the place. That means no gym. No work. No nothing.
Anyway, if you've never had pink eye as an adult, consider yourself lucky! I definitely remember having it a few times as a child, though I don't remember much else other than that. It is miserable! And gross! I'm somewhat of a germaphobe so when I looked up how you get it I was thoroughly freaked out. But fortunately I saw the doctor and hopefully, HOPEFULLY, the symptoms will subside by tomorrow since I will have been on antibiotics.
Now for the weight loss portion of my frustration. Once again, I let weekend "fun" eating foil my efforts. I had gotten down to 216, but I'm back up again to 217.5. I know fluctuations are normal, I get that. But I was so close to my goal and now I just feel like it's not going to happen. If it's sodium related, I suppose it's still possible.
Ok, so it felt good to write all of that out. I am going to remain focused and just do the very best I can. If I do not meet my goal, it's not the end of the world and I will just try TRY again. Hope reading this wasn't too much of a Debbie Downer for you all. But I appreciate you for reading and keeping me accountable. I think without SparkPeople, my fellow Sparkies, and this blog I would probably go into one of the binge/rage spirals. So far I have avoided that. Hold me to my word, peeps!
