Good morning...Wow - this week went by fast, although it seemed like it was dragging while it was in progress... sure that makes sense. :-) We had a bit of cold spell (cold for us), then rain set in and we haven't seen the sun for a couple of days. That's devastating for me as I need my light and have a tendency to get a little stir-crazy when it's dark, dreary and I can't get out and do things. Although I've never been officially diagnosed (because I've never talked to my doctor about it), I believe that's called Seasonal Affective Disorder, otherwise known as SAD. The short days of winter aren't helpful with this, in the least. Anyway, it's stopped raining and I'm hoping that we, at least, get a glimpse of the sun today.
So - there hasn't been a lot going on here, with the rain and all. I've been trying to get ready for Christmas, but who likes shopping in the rain? Certainly, not I. I'm not a big internet shopper, at least for some things because I tend to prefer being able to see, touch, examine what I'm buying to make sure it's exactly what I want. Online shopping is nice because it's convenient not to have to fight traffic and crowds, but I dislike having to wait for an order to come in the mail, then return things if it turns out it's not what I wanted. Last year, I looked everywhere for a certain type of coloring book for my granddaughter and although I did end up ordering a couple of them, none were exactly what I wanted. I still can't find them this year so I'll print the pages from images I've found online and make the book myself...
All in all, I'm actually a bit ahead of holiday preparations this year because I made most of my Christmas gifts and of course, my adult kids get money so that's definitely easier.
So - weight-wise, I actually forgot to weigh when I first got up this morning (how could I?), but I haven't been doing so well and I'm not sure what's going on. My weight has been on a steady incline, for some reason, although I've actually changed my diet for the better - cut out the simple carbs, etc. and I haven't been at the computer much, so not a lot of sitting. I saw my cardiologist on Monday and medications got changed again, but if, anything that should have had a positive effect on my weight because he increased the dosage of the medication that helps eliminate fluid from my body. I have had a lot of bloating and digestive issues, so that's part of the problem, but not sure why that's going on.
I haven't been walking like I was for a while, but I hadn't been doing that for a few weeks; perhaps that's just now catching up with me. That could also be part of the digestive issue - not enough exercise keeps things from working like they should.
Anyway, I do my weight first thing in the morning and since I didn't, today, I'll be sure to do it tomorrow and post it for my official weigh in as I've been sitting around, had coffee, etc this morning, so I know it won't be the same now as it was when I got up.
So... how about everyone else? Have you met your goal(s) for the week? Be sure to let us know how you're doing, what success you had, problems you might be having, help you need, etc.
