I was sleeping so much and feeling so down that I actually told my hubby I thought I might have depression! I haven't been sick in a long time so I guess I'm just not used to this.
My typical day this week has been...
- get up (begrudgingly) an hour later than my normal time
- drag myself outside for a short walk/run around the neighborhood
- get the kids off to school
- climb back into bed for another hour
- force myself to do some unpacking or house project
- take a second nap
- get kids off bus
- make dinner
- go to bed almost as early as my kids
Today is the first day I've felt even remotely like myself. I even went to 2 stores (then came home and took a nap!).
It probably hasn't helped that it was rainy and cold and I got no sunshine for most of the week.
This weekend is supposed to be gorgeous, and I can't wait.
Unfortunately this funk I've been in has taken it's toll on the weight front too. I managed to gain 4 pounds in 4 days. I got on the scale yesterday and almost cried!
I will NOT be a failure at this, so I took immediate action. Yesterday and today I've been on full liquids. Today the scale rewarded me by dropping 2 of those 4 pounds. I'm hoping the other 2 will be gone by tomorrows weigh in.
This is the first time I've had a substantial gain in 20 months! I guess I shouldn't have opened my big mouth in my last post when I mentioned that I was staying the same without much effort. Those days are gone.
I also need to bite the bullet and join the gym here. I really miss my gym in Illinois. I'm hoping to love the one here as much. I just haven't had the time or energy to get over there and sign up. I'm going first thing Monday morning while the kids are in school. It's obviously something I can't put off any longer.
For Mother's Day, we're going to the Milwaukee Zoo. We've been once before and loved it. It should be the first non-rainy weekend since we moved in. That'll be a nice change.
I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day and get to do something special with your loved ones.
Until next time, be well!
