Not Giving Up!
Saturday, June 09, 2018
Today is one of those days when one sometimes feels like just giving up. We are remodeling and my kitchen is torn all apart. I don't even have counter space for food prep right now. Hoping this will be finished soon. With having to make alternate plans for meals, this week has not been good nutritionally. This all started sooner than I had thought it would, so I didn't have time to prepare and freeze meals. Therefore, there have been more meals out.
I like to get my exercise finished early in the morning, but this week, my husband has been telling me what he wants me to do as soon as I get up. I have had to run errands for him between two nearby towns all week. Today I said, "Today is my day off!" I got out by myself, went out of town, then went by to visit a friend before going home and just having time to refresh before leaving again for a 50th Wedding Anniversary party for a friend.
When I did my weigh-in this morning, I had gained 3 pounds this week!!! I know part of it is from eating out and getting too much sodium, but it is still depressing. No matter what, I intend to get back on track one way or another next week. I can't give up now. I have hypothyroidism and it is more difficult for me to lose weight. I know it will go slowly, but I am determined to not get discouraged and quit. While I was teaching, I would not let my students say "I can't." They had to at least say "I'll try." I won't just say "I'll try" but "I will." SP and all the wonderful friends here have been a tremendous help to me. With all the help and support here, I know I can do it!
Sorry for the complaining, but sometimes it just helps to unload. I know I can't blame anyone but myself for my failures. I am the only one who can make this work. With or without his help, I will! My health depends on it.
