At the bottom of the Freakin' Hill...

Thursday, September 14, 2017

...and starting to push the stone again! I have gone through the mill in more ways than one over the past two years. Now, I have high blood pressure and am at the heaviest I've ever been.

My healthy habits were a constant source of stress as I desperately tried to go strictly Paleo (did for a full month...and gained 4 pounds!) I've stopped T'ai Chi, because my instructor moved away and I've lacked motivation and courage to find a new one and practice much on my own.

So, here I am, eschewing the trends and acknowledging the crap in my life and still realizing I'd handle it all a lot better if I felt physically stronger and healthier.

So, I went to the dreaded Gyno, I'm on blood pressure medicine, I made an appointment for both a mammo AND the dreaded colonoscopy (eeeewwwww...) All this is saying something, since I'm a BABY about going to any sort of doctor! I also put the damned scale on my kitchen counter.

Let's see what happens.

    Nice to see your happy cat face again, but sorry that it means you are back at the bottom of the hill. That stone is a little lighter this time though, no? I like NIGHTGLOW's suggestion for a new name. I hope you'll be changing it soon!

    I like the idea of the scale on the kitchen counter!

    I was about to say, "you got this, Sisyphus!" Then I saw your handle. Excellent! Though I believe you will soon be SisyphusNoMore.
