When your doc changes your diet...
Tuesday, February 21, 2017
I have been trying my best to keep tracking and keep moving. I have been getting up early and squeezing in videos before work. The weather got SO nice last week that I went for many walks. Even the dog was tuckered out on Sunday! I wish I was feeling a physical change (like my pants becoming looser or something) but it hasn't happened yet. I am trying to tell myself to keep going and it will come along.
I went back to the doc this morning. I have a couple of follow up appointments with specialists now. They don't think it is my thyroid causing me to feel bad since my levels haven't changed. They DO want me to go gluten free again. Sigh. Since I already went grocery shopping for this week I am going to ride this out and reset this weekend. I can't say that I'm super surprised that this came back again. I actually don't eat too much "gluten laden" stuff. We have zoodles instead of pasta, for example. I do really enjoy a beer on the weekends so that is going to hurt, but I shouldn't be drinking beer anyways ; ) Empty calories! Either way, I'm going to have to pivot on the diet part of this journey again.
Having a bit of home life drama. Not with my husband, he's pretty awesome, but my immediate family has me on the strugglebus. I downloaded an app called "Breathe" for my iwatch. It is supposed to remind you to stop for a minute and "meditate" a few times a day. I think I need it. I can feel my shoulders tightening more each day this continues. Why not try something new!?
I'm also trying to keep up my acts of kindness here and there. It is turning into a good focus point for me, instead of the things that bring me down. I'll say it once again - try to practice kindness today. It really does work!
That is all for now! Hope all is well out in Sparkland!
