Total Loss: 35.6
To say I had a rough time this week would be like saying the Captain of the Titanic had a rough time. It wasn't good. I was so tired. So very tired. I felt hopeless and discouraged. I was kinda sorta holding it together until I couldn't find my phone charger.....and collapsed on the bed in the middle of the afternoon in a pathetic state of tears and whining.
Hubs must have known something was wrong before I did, because earlier that day he surprised me with these....
I decided to spend a whole day getting rid of a ton of STUFF around my house. I brought two car loads of STUFF to Goodwill. I cleaned and organized my kitchen cabinets and drawers. I did the same for the drawers, shelves, and cabinets in my living room. Getting rid of all the extra THINGS immediately made me feel better.
I don't really know where this exhausted feeling is coming from. At one point I was diagnosed with anemia. And I haven't taken iron supplements in years. I got a mulit-vitamin that has iron and hopefully that will help. I was also worried that my blood sugar might be high. I got a blood glucose monitor from a friend who has diabetes (yes, new needle!) and tested my blood. Fasting is 112. And 3 hours after eating was 75. I have gotten so much mixed information about what those numbers mean. But I think it means I am pre-diabetic. Bleck....don't really want to think about that.
The only thing to do about it is what I am doing already. Eat right and exercise.

I don't really want to think about my weight either. I did gain 1.2 lb this week. And that is crappy. But I know why. And I'm not beating myself up. I need to remember that I like eating healthy and exercising. And I really really do. Exercising is one of my favorite things to do. I never thought I would say that. I made some delicious stuff this weekend. I will put the recipes in a future post.
