Well I think I have worked myself out of the funk though I think it has a lot to do with the tea and the fact that Mike is on his way home for 4 days. We’ll see next week how I handle a new 10 day stretch. I am hoping better then I have the last three weeks.
I am following the menu I shared with you, I am exercising except not getting in the usual 8 hours a week but so far 3.5 and tomorrow will get another 2 early in the am. I haven’t stepped on that scale but I can feel a difference in my pants so hopefully I’ve rid myself some of the excess water and puffiness I was having last week and a couple of pounds would be nice too. I have a big issue I haven’t figured out the plan for yet. I need to drink my 100oz of water a day and when I don’t I can feel it but with driving bus it’s really different since you just can’t go whenever you have to go. Since this coming rest of this week and early next I only drive late afternoons it won’t be back I’ll just get most of my fluids in before noon and then again when I get home but when I drive both am and pm it’s harder. Just an issue to figure out.
I have supported a whole bunch of you and so many of you have returned the favor. Most of us have finally gotten into this challenge, some (like me) seemed to need a hit on the head while other hit the pavement running. It’s amazing how the Lord has made us all so different but so many of us have a common get healthy goal.
My book is still sitting there unread, the running books, but I am reading my other challenge book. It’s a lot about the midlife issues that I am dealing with and beginning to learn from. I am usually a go with the flow type of girl but it has seemed in the last month I am fighting change tooth and nail and I’m not happy with that so time to try and figure out the inside while the outside gets better too.
I am also thinking it’s time to get out my sewing and start a few sewing projects. I always feel better when I’m creating so in-between life I think a nice project will make the evenings Jim is out in the garage and Mike is gone more manageable.
So my midweek is better then last weeks but still not the Julie that I was before Christmas but I’m getting more focused, I’m getting my crap together and I’m learning.
Take care my friends and have a blessed afternoon.
