I am waiting to go back to the cardiologist for the results of my 7 day cardiac monitoring study. I currently am restricted from strenuous activities and exercise until we get the results. Not like I feel like doing any strenuous activities or exercise right now anyhow.

My health hasn't really bounced back from my hospital stay in December. I feel like I am in a downward spiral with my health and my emotions. The feeling horrible is hard enough but the not knowing is even harder. I need some answers and at this point I don't know that I even care what those answers are going to be. I need to just know already.

I haven't tracked my nutrition in MONTHS. I am so far off track at this point that it feels like such a hurdle to even attempt getting back at it. I haven't even been mindful of my eating which has resulted in a 15 pound gain in the last 2 months. When will I say that enough is enough?

I feel like I have so much else going on physically and emotionally that I can't really commit to this weight loss thing right now. I know I need to though, as losing weight will potentially help with my overall health and emotional well being. So, why can't I find the energy to even think about the calories I am consuming and track them??

For now here is the plan:

Step 1 - Ensure 8 glasses of water daily
Step 2 - Be mindful about what I am eating even if not tracking per say right now
Step 3 - Get results from cardiologist
Step 4 - Reassess and move forward

    There is always a time and a place for everything. This may not be the time for you to be invested in your weight journey. It sounds like your plate is full at this time and emotionally battering yourself isn't going to help. It will all work out, but you need to be healthy first. So be aware of what you eating, but do not beat yourself up at this time. Have you heard from the cardiologist yet? Have they figured out what's up and got you on track? Let us know how your doing. emoticon
