Some progress

Vickie asked if I was feeling better after my post about being "in a slump." I am, somewhat.

I blame the cold for the bone-tired feeling I have been living with for the last few days. I have been very tired and it has been hard to get enough sleep.  I wake up a lot, again, I think, because of the cold and the difficulty of keeping the temperature right -- sometimes I wake up soaked in sweat because I put on so many blankets trying to stay warm.  On Wednesday, I tried to work but mostly stared at my computer in a stupor and told myself I should go to the gym while not going to the gym.

I haven't been able to work out outside (wind chills here have been in the negatives), but I have gotten to the gym or worked out at home most days.  I have a workout class scheduled for tomorrow and I will have to watch the weather to see if it will be cancelled.

I have been sticking to my New Year's Resolution of logging my food no matter what. I have set some weight loss goals because I have been pretty loosey-goosey about that. I'm taking a cue from the DietBet10 goals, although there is no way I'm spending that much money to play the game. I am going to be weighing in weekly with the Half Size Me Community group.

Work is still stressful, although today I had a break in one particularly demoralizing problem that has been nagging at me since fall.  I'm not sure the situation will go my way, but it is looking up and it's nice to know that someone cares enough to at least try to help. I'm enjoying my classes so far -- that's always the bright spot for me.

I do think most of my woes can be chalked up to the Polar Vortex.  But we had such a mild winter the last two years that I knew something like this had to be coming.

Winter can't last forever.  Someday my feet will not be cold and covered in rock salt!

  1. Can't agree MORE about winter. It's been a rough one, for sure. Hang in there.
