Even though I made a commitment to stay strong in the month of March I easily waned while struggling to get better. I need to stay strong in spite of setbacks that come my way.
Confession #1 - I haven't exercised much, but I did start walking again. I got in about three times a week the last two weeks of March. Yeah! Hopefully exercise will be easier in April. Mid-month I still had a bit of a headache and knee ache; but now, after two months from my fall last February, I'm feeling very recovered. I'm definitely grateful and happy about that.
Confession #2 - My allergies always get the best of me this time of year and this year is no exception. In fact, the doctor had me on prednisone for a week to get some of my acute symptoms to subside and it definitely helped. I'm not perfect, of course, but I am feeling better.
Confession #3 - I only worked one day last month; very weird, since I was working daily for so long. With hurting, being sick, so much to do (I won't list), and me moving along at a slower pace; it was just easier not to work and has given me some needed recoup time. Why is this any kind of a confession - eating makes me feel better when I'm feeling down and out.
The results for the month:
March 1st 235 lbs.
April 2nd 240 lbs.
Gained 5 lbs.
