I am an adaptable creature. Finding what works, the easiest route.
For example: Since my digestive issues are such that I need to stay near porcelain facilities, my solution, not eat until after running errand. Then come home to eat breakfast. Sometimes that means having breakfast at noon.
My blood glucose had been running high and I have noticed an impact cognitively. - Solution? Fall back to old familiar habits. NOT good!!! Even simple tasks are ....
I have been working on adopting a lifestyle of self-care. I do have appointments for next month with my doctors. but do not think that I should wait.
What I have been doing is just adapting instead of finding solutions.
The Ton of Fun Challenge will be repeated in January!!!!
Wow I've already got plans for 2015!!! How wonderful!
Now to address September -December. Got my son's activities mapped out, Special Olympics Bowling and the Teen/Adult Socials. Good news is I know that I can walk around the exterior of alley while he bowls. That starts on Saturday.
Tonight I think I will go and find out my award for Participating on the ToF Challenge. There is a Mile Walk that I can join in on. Sounds doable.
Speaking of sounds, I will redo that music post when I have a bit more time, soon I hope.
Yesterday I composed a wonderful blog about Music, as I was about to post when my computer crashed. "Oh well"
Having that "Oh, well!" response that Dr. Judith Beck suggests helps me to move forward. Yes that may have sucked, but what can I do now. What's past is past. What counts is what I do now.
Bummed about not making it to the Ton of Fun Challenge Finish Line Potluck last night, my body made other plans for me. I really wanted to see the smiles on the faces as their award(s) were announced. I still do not know mine and will share once I know. Attending would have been a mice way to close out this wonderful experience.
There will be an upcoming newsletter about ongoing programs and weekly Wednesday night walks. The walks sound very doable to me.
I still need to set up a plan for the fall.
Special Olympic bowling starts soon so my walking around the alley will start soon. Getting info and components in place. It's not going to be perfect, but I will have a plan in place.
Went for my final weigh-in.
Disappointed that I didn't meet my goals. :(
Disappointed that my digestive tract issues have returned, :(
However after 11 weeks I have lost 11 pounds.
A pound a week! Woo Hoo! :)
I have gone out of my comfort zone, tried new exercises and found I can do more than I thought I could.. :)
I made myself more of a priority. :)
It is easier to get up off the floor. :)
I am stronger. :)
