Taking It Off Together Tuesday Week #17

Well, I haven't gotten the official report from Leigh yet in regards to everyone's weekly weigh in, but I thought I would go ahead and post my own right now and add the rest when available.

This week I am down one pound! Do you know what this means? This means that I am finally at my mini goal of being 210! W00t! Woot! Holla! It's amazing that I lost weight without exercising, but I'm going to chalk it up to my eating habits. I really don't eat a lot of junk food anymore. Every once in awhile I do get cravings, and I'll satisfy them. I just don't go overboard.

I really need to get back into my exercise groove. I didn't do any this week with the exception of when the family and I went out for a day of bowling. Later that night my legs were killing me. That always happens if I'm doing more activity than normal. When I was a keno runner in vegas, I would go to break, sit down to have my meal, then when it was time to go back, I'd have problems getting up. My legs were both numb and sore. Never thought that could be possible, did you? My legs never did this, nor the rest of my body, until I got Hashimoto's. To this day, no matter what I do in regards to physical activity, this is how my body reacts. I'm o.k. with it now. It used to be really bad until my medications got changed. It's a lot more manageable.

One thing that's been going on lately, and probably the reason I haven't been exercising, is that I'm having trouble sleeping again. I am going to bed at around 3 AM every night. Then I'm up early to get the kids off to school. If I can get a good solid eight hours, I can usually function well through the day. If I'm sleeping like I've been, I require a nap during the day which I really hate to do. Hopefully I can get myself on a schedule of some sort. It's probably the only way to deal with this.
