Back to the Basics. Giving myself the gifts I need the most!
Saturday, February 08, 2014
January was one of the toughest months I have had in a long time. My diet, exercise, and waist-line definitely suffered the consequences. I had walking pneumonia as a complication from the flu I came down with on Christmas Day. I passed out and hit my head on the sink, giving myself a concussion that plagued me with head-aches, dizziness, and nausea for 2 weeks. It also made me moody and very foggy for awhile. I pretty much stayed exhausted and in a Fibro flare, and Todd's work schedule left us reeling just about every day. Stress was high to say the least. All I managed to do was barely maintain my home and get caught up on classes. The good news is I finished my first Accounting class with a 94. I'm now in the middle of my Accounting II class. UGH! I am FINALLY feeling well enough to get started again with my diet and exercise and I sooo need it! I gained about 7 lbs. during the month and it has really made an impact of how I feel physically and emotionally. I felt so much better and had more functional days 35 lbs. ago so this 35 lbs. is my mid-term goal...20 is my first short-term goal. Something has got to give because this is just not the way to feel and live. My confidence has taken a hit which I hate and I just feel blah physically most of the time. So today I start back on my plan with even more determination to reach my goals and give myself the gifts of health and living a fuller life!
