The Biggest loser challenge has been going great, and I'm down about 5 lbs since it started 2 weeks ago! I started medication for my anxiety on Thursday, and it's had a major affect on my appetite. I'm not eating nearly as much and am skipping meals because I'm just not hungry. It'll be interesting to see what that does to the scale next Thursday on weigh-in day.
Life's still crazy. My husband was traveling last Monday-Wednesday, and I don't like being home alone. After barely surviving Monday night, I decided to pack Presley up and head down to my parent's house Tuesday after work. I couldn't get her cage in my car by myself, so I just figured we could barricade her in the kitchen, I'd sleep on the couch, and everything would be fine. Unfortunately, Presley was not having that. I ended up having to pull an armchair (which thankfully reclines) into the kitchen and I slept on that. She spent all night going back and forth between sleeping on my stomach and sleeping on the floor. Needless to say I didn't get much sleep that night. Oh well. This week I'm traveling, so DH can deal with her ;)
I'm struggling to get back into training for my races I've committed to for June. I've been so worn out and I don't think the medication is helping with that now. We went for a 20 minute walk yesterday afternoon and when we got home I was exhausted. I'm hoping to get out for a short run today to see how it goes. Wish me luck!
