So I haven’t been here a while. Funny how that happens, right?
Admittedly since my hospital stay, I have not been 100%. I still am trying to lose weight and become healthier. But I now also have to focus on my body – how I FEEL – to ensure I don’t have another hospital stay.
I need to take some medications to help. Which I’m not very thrilled about but I’m grateful my doctor has a more conservative approach (one of such medications has digestive enzymes to help me break down my healthy salads).
Between that, work, working out, wedding planning, and tackling projects around the house, I haven’t had much spare time for anything else.
It does feel good to be in a better place, physically and mentally. I am far from my health goals, but know I will get to where I want to be if I remain as consistent as possible. No week is perfect, and I have definitely had bumps in the road along the way, but I feel as if I am gradually making progress to a healthier version of myself.
I have realized that on the days I feel good, it is best to be active. When my body is feeling run down, it’s best to take it easy (maybe do a walk or some gardening) to avoid causing stomach troubles. Gradually I’m learning to listen to my body, and to love it more.
I’ve decided that I am going to continue to post here – even on my fitness/health related progress – because it is all part of this journey I’m on. My mind has a tendency to try to keep them separate, but in reality, it is all part of me becoming the best being I can be.
More to come soon!
