Hello Everyone. I just checked and it has been one whole month since I posted a Wellness Wednesday Post! I bet you all thought I "went off the wagon"! LOL You can see there has been a scarcity of posts in general and that is because actual real life takes precedence over cyber and blogging accomplishments. Though I am overwhelmed, things are okay and heading in a good direction. In order to do a better job of being a Wife and Mom, I am reorganizing my life schedule and cutting out some things, that though they were not bad, did distract me from the path that God has placed in front of me. I do plan to continue blogging and working on my health and updating my much neglected My Journey To Wholeness blog.
Today I weighed in at 316#. Disappointing. Not surprising. This seems to be a natural place to settle on my body's thermostat and I don't think I'll continue losing much if any weight without adding exercise.
Progress has been made on that front. When I was at our HMO's pharmacy I bought a pedometer to see how close I actually get to the recommended 10K steps a day. It was $10 and clips to my waste band. A small investment. Now, I just need to take it out of the package! LOL Also, I am continuing to have therapy on my left hip bursitis. It has helped some and I have more mobility but also aching in my leg and hip in different areas than before. Before going for the big C (cortisone shot), I decided to try a Dexamethasone patch and that has helped some. Unfortunately, I believe it will probably take several years to heal as the way I sit and walk is affected by the amount of fat on my body! So my goal is to have walked at least one time before I write next week. That may sound like a whimpy goal, however, I have therapy appt tomorrow and Friday and Saturday I will be going to our local home school convention.
While we were gone over Mother's Day weekend we ate several meals out. This confirmed to us that what we are doing on the home front is definitely in the right direction. Our stomachs just did not feel good eating all that chemical food!
My original goal was to be below 300# by my anniversary trip in August. I am thinking that to do this, I may have to actually diet, which because of previous "issues" I have been avoiding, but if it hits triple digit, may not be too hard. It gets too hot to cook or eat! LOL
So this is a boring post today, but I'm just jumping in and getting my feet wet. Hopefully I can come up with something more interesting next week.
And for those of you waiting for blogiversary giveaways... I'm going to the post office on Friday morning.
