Hanging in there

Thursday, December 19, 2013

Things have been slower lately as far as my health goes. I am trying really hard to keep my eating going and although I haven't logged it on spark, I have been logging it on paper. I don't know why that seems easier to me. I have my phone with my to add anything to spark at any time. I think it's the act of writing it down that makes me more aware. Anyway, my exercise has stalled due to sickness. I have had an overall general sense of fatigue and some other symptoms. The docs are thinking that my hypothyroid isn't being controlled properly so I'm probably going to have to do some tests and stuff. The other opinion is that because my thyroid has been out of whack, I developed adrenal fatigue. I have a lot of the symptoms, so that is a definite possibility. It makes me soooo tired all the time and I actually have to nap after working out. So I'm not doing too much because I get so tired. I'm trying to look at this as loving myself and giving my body the rest that it needs while the docs and I figure out exactly what it's trying to tell us. It's a new way to look at it, but it's helping me to stay positive and hopeful. And that's really what matters - keeping the journey going, not giving up and staying positive =)

    I think your attitude is exactly spot-on. You've gotta do what you've gotta do to take care of yourself and love yourself. Adaptability to changing life conditions is a huge asset!

    Breathe... take it easy... and be your own best advocate.

    Wishing you nothing but the best for a happy, prosperous, and healthy 2014!
