Today, Tanita-san: 181.4
I'm guessing it's way lower than I expected or it would be normally at this stage cause I weighed in late in the day : 5pm.
I've been sleeping a lot and feeling a might lethargic. Made an appointment to see the endocrinologist (soonest available, Feb 3). I'm having some slight chills, some eye/facial "masky" puffiness, a bit of hair loss, and with the extra sleep, it adds up to symptoms of my thyroid maybe being wacky. Maybe. Could be something else that will sort out.
We'll see in a month.
Hubby and I enjoyed out days together for the holiday, which ended yesterday when he went back to work. Boohoo.
Back to normal life.
I walked my 30 minutes yesterday. It was chilly and I had two tops and a quilted vest and put on my biking gloves (no bike, but got the gloves in hopes) to keep the fingers a bit protected. Beautiful afternoon for a walk. I plan to walk after I have breakfast (yeah, at 5pm, hahahah). I'm not feeling peppy, but walk I must. I'd rather sit and read a nice romantic manga or finish up my urban fantasy novel.
I get annoyed when I get junk mail from the USPS these days. In the past, I'd often snip/clip the restaurant coupons. But do I get ones for healthy eateries? No. This is what was in the mail:
|Dunkin Donuts, Burker King, Arby's, and Popeye's |
peddling junk food to me..and ProActiv to take
care of the zits that would result, I guess.
Mail as a marker of the American food obsessions...
But what I'm gonna eat is this:
So, that's the continuing plan. Reject the food environment "out there", create my own food environment. Part of that is picking up my organic coop share today at 7pm. In time to enjoy with dinner's chicken breasts. The share this week includes daikon radish. I"ve eaten this--at Japanese restaurants--but never had to cook it myself. A mini-veggie-adventure, I guess. Looking forward to the Concorde pears (myf ave!) and the organic blueberries (which I adore with Fage 2% yogurt and freshly cracked organic walnuts, which I still have some from last week's share.)
Okay, we go on. And here are my challenge quotes, to keep me focused. Remember to add your quotes when you do your two weekly challenge updates, fellow challengers. Be well...
"The ability to discipline yourself to delay gratification in the short term in order to enjoy greater rewards in the long term is the indispensable prerequisite for success."--Maxwell Maltz
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. ~~Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
