Well, these last couple of weeks I havn’t felt like a new me at all. In fact I’ve been feeling a lot like the old me; the me before I began this process. I”m feeling bloated and tired and my dear old injuries have been showing their ugly head in the way of headaches, back pain, and a pelvis not in alignment (which caused me excruciating hip pain). Oh ya…good times.
I had my one day to be miserable about it all. I pouted, stomped around the house, and bitched to my boyfriend about how frustrated I am about everything. And then, I got over it. My pain is a reality right now. I’m doing everything my Doctor, Massage Therapist, and Physio Therapist tell me to do. I’ve been continuing with my gym workouts and yoga classes…so I must persevere.
I’ve also realized that I’m not 20 anymore and weight is not going to just fall off of me like it used to. This last week’s eating was not perfect by any means. I kicked the week off my indulging in Valentine’s dinners and chocolates. I ate better thoughout the week, but was unorganized with my meal planning, so ate out a lot.
I’ve only got a week and a half until Hawaii. The sunless tanner is going to have to work some magic to camouflage a few pounds and a few flaws, but I won’t let it take away from my vaycay. Me getting frustrated doesn’t make the process any easier. All I can do is regroup and move forward. I am also very thankful that I’m not going at it alone. I have the support of my boyfriend who is going through all the same highs and lows I am. It helps to have a partner to get you though the tough days.
