Yesterday was a *really* tough day for me. It seemed like all the things that I have struggled with... sinus infection, seasonal affective disorder, foot pain, headaches, stress, and weight... peaked together at the same time and it felt so overwhelming. I felt like I would never get out of this spot, where I am exhausted and hurting and fat. But last night after a day of moping around, I got my act together and started focusing again on what I CAN do to change this. I sorted out the things I need to do and am working on doing them.
Tomorrow I am seeing a new physical therapist who will begin ASTYM therapy with me for my plantar fasciitis. I will be doing that twice a week while trying to sleep with the splints on my feet at night. I have some product reviews half written that I've been trying to finish up; I posted one this weekend on my review site for Uve Gourmet Weight Loss drinks and am working on the 2-day detox/cleanse program I was sent to review a couple months ago. That's the one I wanted to complete before starting Medifast a week ago, but I didn't feel well enough so I am doing it now. I'll be back on Medifast on Wednesday and now that I am off my antibiotics I won't need to add yogurt to the plan anymore and can stick to it 100%. In the meantime, I am trying to balance staying off my hurting feet with getting my house cleaned today. I am taking frequent breaks to sit and rest. I feel better today than I have in weeks and feel more hopeful, too, which is a very good thing.
Scale this morning still said 220.
