It's been a very long week... actually a long couple of weeks. I just haven't had time to post an update, but here it is. Last week started with me moping about not losing any weight. I figured that it might have something to do with exercising so much but not increasing my calorie intake. I typically get between 600-800 calories. I decided to up my calories on the days that I work out to see if it would work. Before I could do that, though, a tragedy struck my family.
If that wasn't enough to deal with, I also had jury duty. It was a very interesting process. Fortunately my time was up before the baby's funeral. I did face a problem with food and drinks. They allowed me to drink whenever I needed to, but food provided a bigger challenge. Do you know how hard it is to find a nonperishable food for the soft diet that is sleeve friendly and will fit in your purse? It's one thing if I could have protein bars, but I'm still 2 weeks away from that. So I took nothing. And when I got home, I ate an entire Starkist Lunch Kit! I was starving, I actually felt stomach hunger. It filled me up and I felt satisfied. There's been other things going on the past couple weeks. Meeting with my kids' school, my mom had surgery today and I was also inducted into an Honor Society at my college today (yeah, this is my second honor society and I'm kind of a nerd I guess!) I have not been to Curves since Wednesday of last week and I've lost *drumroll please* ....................... 5 pounds!! I'm now down to 225. It's hardly believable, that's 61 lbs total. Amazing.
I have some more things to write about - I've tried some new vitamins, things like that. Look for those in the next post! Right now, I'm going to go figure out what's for dinner. Maybe I'll actually sit down and breathe.
