It looks like my check-in day has become Tuesday instead of Monday. That’s okay, I don’t want to make any hard and fast rules because that is when I seem to start going wrong. If I get too hard on myself for little non-essential details I will just set myself up for failure. I have seen it so often before.
To further change it up, I didn’t weigh myself today. I have been suffering for a week now with what we are sure is (at least one) kidney stones. I have gone through this pain before and it is always kidney stones, gravel or an infection. As my previous post mentioned I have not gone to the doctor and unless I think it has lodged and needs blasting, I will not be going. I know all the things to do and am doing them. If it isn’t lodged they will just send me home and tell me to do what I am doing anyway. 😀
However, this doesn’t mean I haven’t continued my journey in other ways. On the food front, I am eating very little but am trying to make sure what I do eat is healthy and won’t affect the kidney problems. I have been taking Violet for our walks every afternoon because I need to keep my muscles and joints from seizing up. (I also do it to keep her from having a temper tantrum and giving me a migraine with her whining but please don’t let her know I am giving in to her!)
I have also been working on my “look” a bit. To me, this is just as important as getting the weight off, exercising, and eating right. When I had to get new glasses last month I got a cute frame that is “denim blue” on the front backed by a pretty pink that is also on the arms of the frame. They are a bit bigger than my old frame; however, I needed that for the new peripheral lenses. I really like them and feel good wearing them!
I am waiting for Kay to have time to colour my hair. I am not making any other comment on this because there are people here who actually see me and I want it to be a surprise. I will post pictures here for anyone else that is interested.
I feel good about myself and where I am in this journey. I like the fact that I am going easy on me and therefore am seeing progress. I say it this way because in other failed attempts I couldn’t see the forest for the trees and little successes were lost.
Thanks for continuing on this path with me!
