A lot has happened in life since I last posted!
I lost my mojo around Mother's Day actually, and have been yo-yo-ing ever since. I am 3 lbs from my lowest but I keep gaining 2, losing 2, gaining 1, losing 1, and so on.
It could be worse. I could have said screw it and put the almost 25lbs I have off back on but I don't want to do that!! I have high hopes for September!
I finally had my first echosclerotheraphy done August 18th.
The procedure itself wasn't horrific, but I was sore and swollen and bandaged to hell.
Next week I go in for my recheck. I was just getting into working out on a regular basis when I developed bad plantar fasciitis. I have been fighting with it for months. It is very painful. On top of that I already had issues with the veins and swelling in that leg. After treatment for my veins, I was not allowed to bend my knee or lift over 20lbs. That pretty much put me out of work for the past month as well. I'm hoping my first treatment was successful and I will be given the go ahead to workout and be normal again.
I am back to work the last week of September. I will be working my one job Mon-Wed again which means no A.M. WW meeting. I had to make a choice, but I need the hours. We had a really bad hail storm the beginning of August.
After our huge deductibles we ended up with one newer vehicle and our roof being done in the Spring.(Other issues are still pending with insurance!) With that though brings added expenses ie: I NEED to work!
I know I could do the evening meetings but to be honest, I really don't like them. I hate doing night weigh-ins, having to eat dinner at 8pm or right before, and I don't like the evening leader nearly as much as the morning one I had. It also saves me a chunk of money if I just follow WW online. I also have terrible night vision. The time change will be happening soon and I won't be driving to meetings in the dark. It sucks, but that is my reality right now.
I'm just going to get support through WW online chat, blogging, my WW IG family and doing the WW Twitter group Wednesday evenings. I really want to get another 30lbs off before my birthday in December. It is totally do able!
We are going away to the mountains for a few days, for our Anniversary. We leave in a couple weeks. We planned a trip with a cabin that has walking paths up to beautiful waterfalls. I am hoping we will be able to explore this a bit.
We planned, and booked out trip months ago, but since my foot issues and hubby has been having issues the past couple of months. He has a low heart rate-too low. He has been experiencing some light-headedness, feels exhausted easily and just over all not well. Everything else has been tested. His sugars, cholesterol, BP, ECG, chest xray, etc is all normal. The doctor has no idea what is causing it. We are waiting for an appointment with a cardiologist. In the meantime he has been told not to overexert himself. We may only be able to do some light strolling and otherwise take in the views with the car :( I'm still looking forward to a little get away but it's a bummer.
It's been a tough few months, but I'm trying hard to make lemonade with the lemons we've been handed. To top it all off I was happily baking yesterday, then went to make dinner and when I went to grab a frying pan I felt something in my back pop/yank and I yelped! I have been in horrible agony ever since. I went to chiro this morning and she did a very little adjustment and told me to go home and ice. I have to head back to see her again this afternoon :-/
That pretty much summarizes the past several months. I am recommitting to weekly posts, so if anyone is still around reading, thank you, and please stick around. I will be back!!
