Today, in deep water aerobics class, I was able to reverse soccer kick and touch my left hand to my right foot. It may not seem like much, but it means a lot to me. I don’t have the flexibility I want to have in my hamstrings and quads. My quads are pretty strong, but they’re not loose. But it was awesome when I finally was able to touch my foot!
I’ve been eating more consciously, and making better decisions. I bought and roasted three zucchinis and 1 huge parsnip this week. DELICIOUS. I’m down 1.4lbs from last week. Just about to break a major milestone and I couldn’t be happier about that. I’ve also returned to healthier lunches during the week instead of frozen pizza or grilled cheese. It’s easy to make my own bangin’ honey mustard, so I do that, cut up an avocado and tomato and slap that and some turkey on white bread or make lettuce wraps. So good.
This week, I’ve exercised 5 days in a row. And tomorrow will be 6! I’m very proud of myself for hitting it this hard. It’s helped that I’m now babysitting for my great-nieces. They’ve helped give me a routine that makes me get my ass to the Y and then, when I’m done working out, we all swim together. They’re happy, I’m getting fitter, and we’re in the water. All good things.
Yesterday, I had a doctor’s appointment with my new doctor. She diagnosed me with a sinus infection, which sucks, but she’s also putting in my refills for my antidepressants and thyroid meds. I discussed coming off my a/d meds and I’m currently on a half dose from where I was and feeling fine. I really hope I’m able to get off of them for good. And that I can have me some healthy, happy children.
