No Harm and No Excuses
Sunday, January 21, 2018
So much to share and so much to include, but I will keep it to the most pertinent points. On the negative side, I have felt ill and had a cold since Christmas Day. This has played havoc with my weight and exercise plan. I have either been not eating because I haven't felt like it and been sleeping like I was back in infancy, or so achy that I haven't been able to work out the way I want to and trying to keep myself from eating out of frustration. Neither of those plans is helpful and it makes me feel like I am on the path to self-sabotage. Some of this has been facilitated by a rheumatoid arthritis flare, and the rest is because I have felt off kilter for so long that I have forgotten what my old "normal" feels like.
On the positive side, my boyfriend of 20 months is now my fiance and he has spent an inordinate amount of time (of late) taking car of me and helping me back to the land of healthiness. I have also resumed cooking (something I have been out of the habit of doing since becoming a widow in 2008), which means I am becoming better at meal planning. I am also trying to get more of my regular exercise routine back into play as I start to feel better.
One day at a time, one minute at a time, one second at a time...I can get this back on track.
