Phew. When it rains, it pours!
In the last two weeks the following have happened:
Josh's work vehicle got broken into, and they stole his suitcase/clothes and laptop.
Our van transmission pooped out, leaving me with no car to get to my many appointments, or a way to get Kate to school.
My friend and I had planned a trip together to AZ so I could see Dr. Ray and she could sit in the sun. Our tickets got messed up, and then she hurt her back very badly, and I can't find a babysitter. So we postponed the trip.
There are lots of other little things, but those are the huge, gigantic things that have been stressing us out. So today, I decided to simplify.
I canceled as many of the appointments as I could. I am enjoying a day with my sweet Kate at home. I am taking it easy, and slowly, steadily working on the house. I am going to be very aware of what I eat. I am going to make sure to drink enough water.
I feel like life got so complicated, so stressful, so FULL that everything started spiraling downwards, everything became too much. I was on the brink of a breakdown.
This past weekend was spent at our church conference center, and it was SO SO SO nice. I got to visit with my friends, the kids had an absolute blast, and it was just the breath of fresh air that I needed to clear my head.
"I can see clearly now, the rain is gone..." :-D
I feel so much better about everything. All the issues aren't resolved, but when I simplify everything it takes 90% of the burden away.
So. I'm doing better. I'm going to focus on being healthy/eating well/drinking water.
I gave my scale to a friend of mine who is doing HCG, so I haven't stepped on it in a loooong while. When I get it back I think I'll weigh once a week. I'd like to start making changes, small changes, so that the pounds will start coming off. Even if it's slowly. That's ok. That's basically all I can manage anyway. I don't have time (or even the ability to work out, with my bladder issues). So for now, I'll be focusing on my food intake in hopes of dropping a few pounds, to get back to where I ended my last HCG round at.
I have no idea what I weigh currently. I don't even particularly care about the number. I just want to feel good and healthy. That's my goal.
I hope you had a good weekend and I wish you all amazing success this week! I'm looking at you, Dawnie!!! =)
