Yikes! It Has Been Awhile!
It's been an emotional few weeks of life. Without getting into details, I have just been stressed out to the max and my body is feeling it. I have been so stressed it leaves me with no appetite or the exact opposite: I'll eat a donut...mindlessly....and, then have another one later in the day when I realize I skipped lunch. Nothing terribly earth shattering....some hurtful things happening with family members. Some school issues with a harsh middle school teacher. Girl drama. Sick children. Facebook deactivation.
Let's just say I've been fighting off a "victim" mentality.
I also have been struggling with horrible headaches, even before the major stresses rolled around. One right after the other. I finally promised The Husband I'd go to the doctor (and, he's going today for these horrible nose bleeds he has been having). I was given a script for migraine medication and told I need to cut back on the caffeine. I admitted to 3-5 cups per day, but honestly, it is more like 7 or 8 per day. Coffee, tea and Diet Coke. So, I figured if she thought I should cut back from 3-5, I REALLY better cut back from 7-8!
And, I have not been exercising during all of this. It is a miracle I managed to get in the shower most days. Exercise was last on my list. That hasn't really helped because I know exercise is a major stress buster. I just talked myself out of it most days because migraines and stress leave me worn out and tired. It's easier to sit on the couch and read. Or, sleep.
Since it had been nearly a month since "Big Mama" checked in on Wii Fit I'm sure I could be down much more than 2.2 pounds, but I'm trying to remain positive. At least I lost weight over the last month, rather then gained it!
