I'm down a little more than a pound this week, and I'm happy with my progress. I feel like I'm doing good things for myself and I'm not pushing myself to a limit that I don't feel like I can maintain. I am kind of worried about recovery after my hand surgery on Thursday, but if I can work the next day, I doubt it will take too long before I can do my normal workouts again. I can at least walk or maybe run until I'm healed. I won't really know until Thursday how long it will take to get back to my normal routine. If I can keep my eating under control that should help at least maintain the loss. I'm just ready to be done with the surgery so my hand is feeling better and maybe I can do even better in my workouts, especially with weights.

In other news, the long weekend was great! I didn't get as much done outside as I wanted because it started raining. I got a little done, but I was actually kind of lazy. I did get most of my to-do list checked off, but I took time to just relax and I needed that. Now today is go, go, go before I'm gone Thursday and maybe part of Friday.

I suppose I'd better get back to it. Have a great Tuesday!!

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!!
