Status Quo

Sunday, April 30, 2017

Months fly by in the blink of an eye, don't they? It feels as if the more time I spend online, the less I appreciate my life and the less time I inevitably feel that I have.

It's been a nearly-two month hiatus from Spark again, and at almost all points, things are status quo. I haven't lost weight, I haven't gained weight... I just fluctuate from week to week.

My water and movement habits are nearly non-existent at the moment, but I intend on reversing that as best I can over the next couple months.

I'll be taking a vacation to my lakehome at the end of this week, and then heading to Chicago for work two weeks later. Tickets to Hamilton purchased and so excited!

The beginning of June will see a weekend getaway to Vegas to check Celine Dion off my bucket list, and a evening out to see Rent with friends upon my return. Two weeks after that, I head to NOLA for a SHRM conference.

I have a busy schedule normally, but the upcoming travel will keep me more on the go than I have been in a long time. Without regular access to the gym and my fitness classes, I'm going to have to focus on getting a walk in when I can. That, coupled with decent food choices and adequate water, should get me moving in the right direction again.

In mid-February, I started a body image class with my ED clinic. We are in the final leg of it, finishing up at the end of May. My overarching goal was to separate the experience of weight gain or loss from my body experience. I can legitimately say I have been making progress towards that goal, as I find myself hating my body and the way it looks less often than I used to. It's not perfect progress, but it's progress.

All is well with my 3 babies. Dimitri continues to struggle with his kidney disease, but he is eating consistently again and drinking regularly. I can't ask for more than that. The kittens aren't really kittens anymore... going on 7 months... Vivian and Josephine have made their mark in our house and our hearts.

I came to the realization the other day that the last several people I have dated, I've been the one to break ties. I think that is a huge marker of progress... doing what is right for me and not hanging around to please someone else. Go me!

    It sounds like you have made several NSV's in your journey to a healthier you. Good going!

    You certainly have lovely babies.

    Keep up your good work on holding even, sometimes it's the best we can do when we have so much going on. Keep on walking - it's great exercise.
