It’s been one of those months (Or two or three.). It has not been all rainbows. Stress can really do a number on your brain and your body. It’s one of those things that is REALLY hard to get a handle on, especially when you don’t even realize it’s there, or what could be causing it. The past year and a half has had a lot of things that have piled up, including things I didn’t even know were bothering me.

The good news is, my back and other muscular issues have actually been pretty good lately. So much so that I bumped my muscle manipulation appointment a few weeks out. The bad news is, I haven’t been feeling quite right, mostly at night. I haven’t been sleeping well. When I’d be falling asleep, or wake up to turn over in the middle of the night, I would think I was feeling heart flutters. That made it really hard for me to go back to sleep because I was worried about what it might be. My blood pressure has been great, so I wasn’t sure what was going on. I made an appointment with my primary physician. She ran an EKG and also listened to my heart. The EKG results were normal, and she said my heart sounded great…YAY! That was at least one thing off my mind. So then, we chatted. SO many things that I hadn’t thought about that I could be worried about…Not long before this appointment, COVID protocols had started changing. The questions became wear a mask/don’t wear a mask, being judged for our decisions on getting the vaccine, when to go back to church and the gym, is church going to be the same (Some things there are changing, but since we haven’t been yet, we’re not sure how/if they will affect us.), what will home group be like, if at all? It’s amazing how many things COVID changed. This pandemic affected so many more things than people’s health. Many things were not changed for the better…attitudes, friendships, the way things are run, people who can’t get a grip on the fact that these places have the right to do things how they wish…it’s just gotten so out of hand. I didn’t realize that many of these things were possibly affecting me personally. Anyway, all that to say that we figured out a way to help me out, and things seems to be going smoothly, for the most part.

Workouts have been off and on, but I’ve been doing the best I can. If I’m up for it, I do it, and do as much as I possibly can while trying to not to push myself too hard. I’ve been doing more body weight workouts, but am getting back into weights. I don’t think I’ve lost a lot of muscle, but I feel like I have. I feel weak when lifting because I have fallen back just a bit. I’m hoping that it won’t take long to get back to where I feel good about where I am.

I have been following WW during the week, and doing pretty well on the weekends. Just a little over a week ago was Randy’s birthday, and mine is next Monday. I was hoping I’d be just a bit lower on the scale for my birthday, but I knew things would be a little off since I was planning on letting myself enjoy our celebrations (I’m still within my happy numbers). Starting next Tuesday, the plan is maybe just a couple of drinks a month, if any at all, and same for sweets. I have two goals in mind for when we get our anniversary photo shoot done…I’d LOVE to hit my major goal of 140, but will be happy being under 145. That shouldn’t be difficult to do if I follow my plans, but we’ll see.

All in all, I’m hoping that I am able to get better sleep and better workouts. Those two things are the hardest for me to accomplish right now, so that’s where my concentration will lie for the next 3 months. I’m REALLY looking forward to a great, relaxing vacation in September!
