So I havent fallen off the band wagon…I promise. I’ve been making progress…slowly but surely. Since I last blogged, I’ve lost another 30-35 lbs. 20-25 of those were lost in 2014. I actually lost 15lbs unintentionally. I was hospitalized unexpectedly for some time and was sedated during some of the time so I wasn’t eating. I’m blessed to be doing much better now and I’ll take the lost weight as a silver lining in my hospitalization. Since then I’ve continued to lose weight by cutting back on portions and doing a little moving around. I’m still recovering from my hospitalization so I’m not able to work out yet. I was told that all I could do for exercise was walk. One may think…oh walking is good exercise so that works. However, I was told I can only walk a few feet then I needed to rest…then i can rinse and repeat. I’ve been doing a little more walking than that from time to time especially when I go to work but its only in spurts. I went shopping this weekend and the constant moving around let me know EXACTLY why my doctor told me I couldn’t do much. I was exhausted. Everything on my body was tired. I woke up the next morning to get ready for Easter service and my body was so sore I had to climb back in bed and reach for my ipad to watch service online. Luckily, I didn’t have far to drive for dinner and I had Easter Monday off work to veg out. I did! So…until I can work out…all I have is my diet. So I’ll continue watching my portions and try to eat clean. I’m bad when I’m at work when it comes to water intake but I will be trying to step it up and add a little juicing back into the mix. I also need to get more sleep. My body is still healing so it needs as much rest as possible and honestly, I don’t think I’m getting it. I am getting more sleep than I did before I got sick but I need to push to do more. Why do so many good tv shows come on after 9pm. I guess that’s what a dvr is for huh. Ok, I’ll be back soon. Since I can’t do too much, I don’t know how often I’ll blog but maybe I’ll at least come back to post pics of my new “wardrobe” since I couldn’t fit most of my clothes after I was discharged.
