Back for a second
Saturday, July 17, 2010
What can I say? The internet has not seen much of me lately. For one, our internet connections in South Africa was down for international sites (for some providers) and then they made a plan to have it up again and we ended up having such slow connections it was worse than dial-up! Seems like all is back to normal now.
We had our mid year holiday that coincided with the soccer world cup. It was cold mostly and I spend most of the time either nursing my son back to health and then my husband. Now my daughter is ill and I have started coughing too. Fun.
It has been cold and miserable with the odd sunny day all through the holiday and I have been struggling to keep my body temp normal. I would not only feel cold, but my body would be freezing to the touch. As it seems my Thyroid is the culprit in this, we had to draw blood again on Friday - just to check it out again.
I've been struggling terribly to stay on track and going to the gym has fallen by the wayside. It would seem that at the moment I'll be taking one step forward and about four steps back! At this rate, things are not looking up weight loss wise. :(
I get into things for a week or two and then it seems I gain weight for no reason, I get despondent and start eating and the deck of cards come tumbling down. I must also add that in the weeks I do stay on track WL is slow and the nubers low.
On the up side, I might have found a gym buddy besides my husband. I cannot wait to get back to gym as soon as I am feeling better and stopped coughing.
When I go the gym I find that I automatically eat better - I can't stand the idea that I work so hard just to mess it up by putting food in my mouth. Of course swallowing it is the real culprit ;D
I'm off to bed now. It is so cold here in the study and I can feel my extremities turning into Popsicles!
Thank you to all who inquired about my absence.
