I found out I have to have surgery to remove a cyst in my hand. Luckily the surgery will be small and I can go back to work the next day. I won't be able to lift anything, so I'll have to modify my workouts while I'm healing, but I'll be glad to have the hand taken care of and hopefully feeling better before the long drive to North Carolina next month. I go for surgery next Thursday and I'm so glad to have understanding bosses that let me take off and I know if I come in on Friday and can't make it the whole day they'll let me go home.

I don't have anything planned for my long weekend this weekend, just some gardening and housework. I might try to go buy some necessities for our trip too. I hope everyone has a great weekend! And safe travels for anyone going out for the Memorial Day weekend.

Is anybody else ready for the weekend? I'm wishing it was Friday already. I get an extra day off for Memorial Day too, so that will be nice, and both of my kids are out of school now, so we'll have to find something to do on Monday.

I got my workout in last night, it was a strength workout, so not the cardio that makes me as tired, but I was still beat afterward. I'm going to try to do the workout I missed on Tuesday tonight, but it will depend on when I get home from work. Doing my workout last night I could see a little more definition in my legs, that is what I'm working for, a little less jiggle and more definition. It's funny how sometimes you just notice a small change from where you started and it just hits you that what you're doing is making a difference in your body. I'm looking forward to more changes in the future.

I hope everyone has a great Thursday!!

Thanks to those who wrote me a message of support yesterday! The verdict is low iron, yet again. I'm glad I recognized the symptoms and got in to get it checked. We'll see Friday what the hand doctor says.

Last night I ended up relaxing after getting home. I had to run some errands after work and made dinner when I got home since my hubby had a meeting. I was feeling validated, like I'm not lazy, I am truly tired, so if I need to rest it's okay. I think sometimes my hubby does think I'm just lazy, and I know I can be lazy, but he doesn't understand having zero energy. I started the iron supplements last night, so hopefully within a couple of weeks I'll be feeling more energized again. Tonight I am planning to do my workout and just push through the tired until I'm feeling "normal". I'm glad that I haven't gotten too bad in my eating, which I tend to do when I'm feeling tired, eat to stay awake.

A lesson I've learned is to advocate for yourself, if you know you're not feeling right, find the answers. We go on vacation in a month, so I'll be glad to have more energy for our trip. I'd hate to have put off going in and then have just slept through the whole thing, or been the party pooper who didn't want to do anything.

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!!

I just got done at the doctor and now have to go to a hand specialist. I have what my doctor thinks is a cyst at the base of my index finger so she's sending me to the specialist to see if they can remove it or what the course of action will be. I'm hoping not surgery, but I'll be glad to have it gone either way I guess. I'm also getting my iron, vitamin d, and thyroid checked to make sure my levels are okay. I've been really tired lately and I've felt like this when both my iron and vitamin d were low, so we'll see what comes of the tests.

Driving from the doctor I wanted to stop for junk food. I don't know why, I haven't been eating a lot of junk, but my brain was telling me to stop. I didn't stop, but I think it was just thinking about going to the specialist. That little bit of stress and my brain is telling me to get comfort foods. I guess if I just keep resisting the urge to give into those feelings and the "need" for comfort foods, someday maybe I'll have better habits.

Anyway, enough for me for today. I hope everyone is having a happy Tuesday!!

21 May 2018

New week, new weight. I've been on a downward trend lately, so that's good. I didn't eat the best this past weekend, but I did do better than I normally would have when we have people over. We had family over Saturday night and grilled, and that would usually mean eating a bunch of junk, but we had some fruit and I chose lean meat instead of a fatty steak for dinner. I did the 5K Saturday too, and luckily it stopped raining right before we started, it was chilly, but once I was running it was fine. I was able to run the whole thing, just not super fast. I finished, I didn't walk, and did better than I thought I would, so I'm proud of myself. My hubby and BIL did the 10K and they did great too, my hubby actually got second place, so I'm proud of him. The feeling of accomplishment crossing the finish line is always a mood booster.

Now this week, back to my normal routine, hopefully. I'm planning to get my regular workouts in, which I'm looking forward too, and on the weekend I may go for a run. I realized how different my muscle use is after that 5K, my quads were on fire! I would love to see if I can increase my speed too.

I hope everyone has a great Monday!!
