So let’s play doctor, babe! We’ll operate today

 

So it’s been a hot second since I’ve posted. 6 months plus?  Sheesh!

I’m currently at about 50 pounds down.  COVID and the quarantining thereof have been a bitch to deal with.  For a while, the gyms were closed, which sucked hardcore.  Nowhere to go, nothing to do…but eat.  And I did.  I’ve gained roughly 10 pounds back, 3 of which I’ve lost again, as of today.  I was hoping this would be easy, but it’s not.  When you are a food addict/emotional eater/whatever you want to call it, it’s hard.  You can’t just stop eating.  You can only modify your intake – the quantity and quality.

So I say to myself, “buck up, lil camper” — do what you gotta do.  I’ve upped my protein intake, I drink so much water I have to pee every 15 minutes, and I’m working out more than ever.  I go to the gym, I go for walks, and I have equipment I use at home.

That’s all I can do, really.  Keep pushing forward and keep trying.

Meanwhile, my husband came down with the virus.  That did not help my stress levels any.  I tested negative.  We quarantined.  He’s fine now, and his symptoms were relatively mild, so he was lucky.  I am grateful.

Until the next time, folks.  Be safe, and wear a mask.
