Wow, it's been too long since I did this.

Tuesday, November 27, 2018

It's been almost be a year since my last blog. So much has changed. I got a second job, DH had his hip replaced, I quit both jobs and got another one making $3 more per hour(yes!) I'm still part time but making more than before with less hours. I was diagnosed with degenerative arthritis in my back, carpal tunnel, and cubital tunnel as well. Oh, also I lost my Fitbit so tracking exercise, sleep, everything is so much harder now.
More importantly I lost weight! Not much but enough that my doctor congratulated me on my progress. Most of my numbers went in the right direction as well.
I have decided to work harder over the next few months to not gain, but LOSE over the holidays. I need to lose at least 5 more pounds by my next appointment in May. It will be easier if I don't have to lose extra. I know it is possible, I've done it before. I will do it again.

    emoticon Blog, Anna! You are definitely going in the right direction and I'm glad 2018 has brought some good things.

    emoticon partly because you just don't give up! Just as you worked your way to a better job, you will also work your way to better health.

    Sounds good.
    I'm sorry that you're having these physical issues, they tend to happen to those of us who work with our hands, don't they?
    I think that you can indeed lose weight over the holidays. It's not easy, but then it never is, is it? emoticon

    That's great that you are making more and working less hours, congrats!

    I am sorry to hear about the carpel tunnel, that's rough. I worry about my wrists all the time, my hands are my money makers.
