Well, I haven’t posted in a week. The weekend did not go smoothly and it was very tumultuous, unfortunately. However, I will not disclose information of such personal, family matters. I will just state that things are back on track, all is well, and I have an amazing husband and a caring father.
Monday, I remained in bit of a funk. I was completely wiped out emotionally and mentally, so I skipped exercise and just made it through the working day. I had issues with getting onto the Remote Desktop at work on Saturday, so I had an additional workload for Monday night. The problem ensued Monday night and I had to use my iPhone as a hotspot to finish my procedures. Prior to that, it was a couple of hours trying to connect and contacting Spectrum. It was very stressful, to say the least. Fortunately, by Tuesday morning, the internet and phone were working again and (knock on wood) have been continually working.
I was able to get in some exercise on my FitDesk on Tuesday and went to an intermediate yoga class yesterday. Oh boy, that kicked my butt (or my legs and back, to be exact). All of my strength was used on that workout. Yesterday, I tried the no caffeine again, as well as eating only non-reactive foods. I was completely depleted by 2 pm and asleep at 7:30. Unfortunately, I only got 7 hours of sleep, because my sleep is always restless since having Roger.
This morning I woke up sore and determined to change up what would be a very restrictive LEAP diet. I contacted the nutritionist with an outline of what I plan to modify. She said it was a great idea and that I will probably last longer on the “diet/lifestyle” due to the modifications. First summer life with a 6 year old boy who happens to have autism and working full-time will be hard enough without having insane food restrictions. The first modification: COFFEE. I had a cup and was actually able to vacuum. Yesterday, I was lump on the sofa.
On a different note, tonight I get to see one band that I have been aching to see for the past 28 years: The Damned. Both times I previously set out to see them, there was an issue. This is their 40th Anniversary tour and I thought, yet again, the plan was going to be foiled when Captain Sensible fell off the stage and broke his rib(s). And, then, once it was still a go-ahead, our sitter double-booked for tonight. Fortunately, I met with other sitters and we have that covered. Now, the weather calls for hail, so there’s always something!
One more tidbit of good news: in the past two months, I have lost 7.2 pounds. If I just lose 3 pounds a month, I will be at my goal weight by next March. No pressure – just taking it one step at a time.
