... and another weigh in at 229. No loss no gain this week, but my effort in the weight loss direction was pretty much zero aside from mindlessly keeping calories in check by using Medifast and Wonderslim shakes for some meals and snacks. I hardly ate a vegetable this week though and that's a step in the wrong direction. No exercise aside from being busy and a few necessary walks, either.
I believe things will be slowing back down after tomorrow, or at the latest, next Monday. Maybe then I will actually have time to pay more attention to my own health and needs, which are:
eat more produce
get some solid sleep
start biking again
Actually, sleep is my top priority right now. Getting so little sleep lately is affecting everything in a negative way. If I could just get a good 4 hour stretch every night I would feel so much better. So... this week: earlier to bed, and a shift in the time I take my last blood pressure medication dose to take advantage of its side effect of drowsiness. I find it so hard to sleep when I am stressed and exhausted... when I need it the most!
I am very thankful for all the kind support. I apologize that I have answered almost no emails in the past few weeks... just have not had the time but please know I appreciate the kind words and I do hope to be able to sit down with a cup of coffee and relax and write you back!
