Not feeling so great

Tuesday, January 07, 2020

This is my first blog post.

First I will list 3 good things that happened today as I will do everyday to hopefully ease the anxiety and oncoming depression.

1. It didn't rain when we did our walk today.
2. Played with Sophie my shih tzu getting her to stay while I hide around the corner with a treat. She was so funny as she would slowly come to the corner and peek around at me. Had to try 3 times before she stayed but it sure was fun.
3. I walked 77 minutes, 6.79 km and 9,480 steps. It was hard but I pushed through and did it.

My IBS is acting up yet again. It seems every night I get bad cramps then have to rush to the bathroom where I have diarrhea. I checked all the food I ate today and all of it was low Fodmap so it would affect me. Must be the anxiety that is making it worse.

So end of day I'm not feeling so great, but soon I'll head to bed and listen to my calm app. Here's to waking up better tomorrow.

    Hopefully you are feeling better today. emoticon on your first blog, well done. Great start with the walk! You commented you walked 77 minutes, saying you pushed through. I commend you for your long walk but realize you can stop much sooner and do you want to avoid burnout. More is not necessarily better but consistency is best and that can be less.

    If you can have it, peppermint herb tea often helps w/ tummy aches & digestive issues. My cousin got some relief w/ her IBS using it.⛾

    It all begins someplace and you just started there. Sp is the way to do it.

    We want to remember it took us a few years to put our weight on and it comes off a little at a time, just like it went on. People get frustrated with it not coming off faster than we put it on. But with consistent focus on doing what we are told on SP we will hit our objective. Like many things it just wont get there overnight.

    Make sure you make one of your most focused goals you water intake. Myself, when I hit plateaus its because I am not doing the water correct. I found using a reminder on my phone to be very helpful in making sure I keep on track with the water
