For the Millionth Time, Day 1

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Yesterday was a good reminder for me of why I need to change the way I'm doing things. I had a migraine. A completely debilitating thing that started Sunday evening and didn't completely go away until late last night. The nausea-inducing pain subsided a little earlier in the evening so I at least got to have a nice dinner in and watch a movie with Jason, but overall it was a wasted day. Then I felt ill all night because I had popped too many pain pills and my stomach did not appreciate it.

I was supposed to go to work for a half day yesterday and then trot over to the grocery store to stock up on veggies and chicken so that I could plan my healthy meals over the next few weeks. Then I was supposed to be a scintillating companion last night as Jason and I rang in the new year together.


I woke up this morning and weighed and measured myself. Holy cow, that was depressing! My weight is extremely out of control and I've gained back almost all the weight I worked so hard to lose several years ago.

But at least I know where I'm starting from for real, so when I do make improvements, I'll know exactly how much progress I'm making.

I scrambled some eggs for breakfast and put the black-eyed peas on to cook. I just checked the grocery store websites and they're all open so I'll be heading out soon. While I feel bad for the employees who have to work today, I'm glad I get a grocery store trip do-over, since I was out of commission yesterday.

Happy New Year everyone!

    I think one of the reasons maintenance is so hard for people is that you so easily forget how hard it was to get where you were in the first place. It takes constant vigilance to remember what works and what doesn't. Let your guard down too often and you start to head back to the same old problems you started with.

    The best laid plans of mice and men....

    You weren't alone with the migraine. My bf had one too and slept from 4 pm till almost midnight, at which point he got up and ate a cold dinner. Then he couldn't go back to sleep until 5 am. I got to entertain my mother all by myself. **sigh**

    I weighed and measured too. Let's get some challenges together and try and kick each other into gear.

    I am also on day 1 again. I weighed and measured this morning and it wasn't pretty. Good luck to you.
