This has been a weird week. I have had very little trouble staying under my Weight Watchers points because food hasn't really been that big of a deal to me -- I am eating when I'm hungry and not when I'm not. Yesterday all I had for lunch was fruit and yogurt and it felt like enough. I just didn't want to bother with fixing anything else to eat.
Another reason was that I was going to see my doctor about some symptoms that were worrying me -- dry mouth, frequent urination. My family has a history of diabetes and with my brother-in-law's recent complications from it, I didn't want to fool around and ignore any possible symptoms, even though of course I worried that they'd think I was just being a hypochondriac. The doctor doesn't seem too concerned, and would want me to do the same kind of lifestyle modifications I'm working on anyway. I'm going for a fasting glucose test on Monday. They were happy that I was down 9 pounds since the last time I was there a year ago.
I have just felt so run-down and lethargic lately. I don't really feel like exercising at all and have skipped a couple of workouts -- swimming and Spinning, neither of which I really love anyway. There's so much extra STUFF with those workouts: special clothes, special time to be there, an instructor who's going to push me harder than I might want to go... I used to like those workouts but I'm just not feeling into it these days.
My sleep has been terrible too, I just don't want to stay in bed past 5:00 a.m., and I'm waking up frequently before that. All in all, I just feel off. But at least I should lose weight this week, as long as I don't blow it this weekend.
