It’s been a while...
Thursday, March 08, 2018
Not sure why I haven’t been blogging lately... well, that’s not entirely true... I have been procrastinating about writing it until later in the evening, and then I simply fall asleep before I write anything. I have NEVER in my life been a morning person before, and it’s taking a while for me to adjust my mental schedule, and rearrange when I get certain things accomplished. So maybe I will go back to blogging in the morning.
Today I have to run to the lab for blood work, drop my dog with my dad, and then I am off to the neurologist. This is just a standard nerve block injection treatment appointment, but I want to ask her about increasing my preventative medication a little, because that 3 week migraine was a doozy. I would rather prevent a recurrence.
As far as the weather goes... it looked for a while yesterday morning like it was going to be a repeat of last weeks storm, but the snowfall tapered off... and it amounted to very little. We are not out of the woods yet though... still have snow potential through Friday night. I am really, really over this Winter thing. Not that I don’t have issues with the spring, but those are life experience issues, rather than weather miseries. lol
I made a comment this morning that sometimes I still feel “fat”... even though intellectually I know I am not. But after living in my body at over 300 pounds for years the mental adjustment is tremendous and ongoing. I imagine that the specter of those years will linger... and it’s not that I don’t KNOW that I am at a healthy weight... it’s just an emotional/visceral memory of how it felt to be that big. In some ways remembering is a good thing, as it provides motivation to not return to that state. But, it can also get in the way, and provide an avenue for me to come up with excuses why I can’t do something (because I am too big)... even though the facts have changed and the reality is far different now.
Funny how the mind can travel down convoluted paths huh?
Anyway, I hope you have a great day and enjoy the body you’re in and what it CAN do... at whatever weight you’re at!
