Weekends are Work

It feels that way...I have so much to do this weekend and just no gumption to do it. I slept in this morning and woke up feeling refreshed and if I had slept well for the first time in weeks.  A phone call from a friend with some good news (if you're reading W - I am so,so, thrilled for you!!!) and then it was off to Gentle Yoga. I'm glad it was gentle this morning, my muscles were stiff and I was tired, the yoga helped to stretch and release the tension but left me feeling more lazy-ish and wanting to stay that way.

Once I got home, it was time to tackle the housework. Dishes first. I miss my dishwasher. Dishes done, I lounged for a bit, dozed for a bit, then tackled tidying up and cleaning the bathroom.

Seriously - did I mention how lazy-ish I am feeling today? I truly  did not want to do any of this. I went for a short walk just to get some fresh air and stretch my legs. Quick dinner and now.....I could sleep!!! I still have laundry to do though but I think I'll leave it until tomorrow some time.

I have running room practice at 830 tomorrow morning and right now, that seems SOOOO early! I'm  looking forward to seeing my running room girls though and hoping to do a trail run - I've discovered I really like trails so much better than paths or residential/street running. 

After that I have to meet my son at the train station and bring him home, I'm hoping once I've done this with him tomorrow, he'll be confident enough to do it on his own next time. 

Not sure what this blog was meant to be about...I  seem to be rambling. 

Oh yes!! I meant to update you on my endocrinologist appointment last week. All my bloodwork is good, she is happy with my weight and I lost 3" off my waist since my last appointment in March.  I told  her I was frustrated that I keep getting stuck at weight loss, that I would  love to keep losing consistently like others I know and  she said that the bloodwork and the inches loss showed that I was doing all the right things and I just had to keep at it and not give up. I know she's right. We talked about trying to go off the diabetes meds after my next appointment in 4 months which is one of my goals so I'm pumped about getting to that point. I'm on the lowest dosage now and my glucose levels are always within the "normal" range and she thinks I can keep it there just with diet and exercise. I'm looking forward to that and want to do everything I can to achieve that goal.  That would leave me with only thyroid medication, which she tells me I will probably always have to take and is a genetic disorder rather than one I can control.

Although this past week was soap opera central  (again), I am feeling like I am coming out of this emotional funk I've been in and am ready to tackle the world again.

Let's do this!


  1. I may just have been that kind of a day...I took a little nap just because...probably all that gray outside!

    Great news about your appointment and great news on the loss of inches! It will be great if you are able to get off your medication when you have your next appointment. Wheeee!!!

    Have a great run tomorrow!

  2. IT is such great news that you're so close to being off the diabetes meds. I believe in you! You are doing the right things. Running, eating more carefully. Sometimes the scale is a stubborn poop.

    Happy trails! :)

  3. Yes, this is a wonderful post with so much good news! Being close to being off diabetes meds is frickin awesome!!!!!! 3 inches off the waistline isn't shabby either! :D

  4. I love a good sleep in. Looks like things are looking up big time. It's amazing how exercising, eating right and losing weight makes us healthier! Now if I can just get into the swing of it big time myself...

  5. Glad you're shaking your emotional funk and congrats on losing 3" off your waist, that's great!

  6. If you are looking for your lost 3 inches I have found them here for you :(
