Busy day yesterday. I ate too much at our get together but that's ok, it is a rare occurrence.
Dd3 is throwing up again, not sure what is going on.
Fwiw dd3's bday was last week and I didn't make my goal weight, I'm staying 8-10 lbs above my previous weight. It seems I can maintain here easily. I'm just going to take it easy until the New Year and see if I can lose weight then as it is generally easier for me in the New Year.
I'm trying to build my activity level back up. The local dr. did a bunch of tests, all were negative and told me to check with my endocrinologist b/c he thought my symptoms fit with that. I've got an appt next week. But I don't know if they will find anything. I think I have a few things going on. I think part was a bit of compromised breathing due to fall allergies, I kept getting tightness in my chest this fall and my breathing capacity has increased lately. Last fall I ended up with walking pneumonia and almost hospitalized. I really need to go to an allergist but it is money I don't need to spend, maybe next fall we'll still have FSA funds. I think another part is hormones b/c I feel better or worse depending on the time of my cycle (which keeps shortening). I am going to test hormones again but I think I should just come to expect it b/c it could just be peri. Lastly, I think it has been partstress-inducedced, August was horrendous and also coincided with all of the health issues. Some things I can't control. I'm going to have them re-check adrenals as well.
I've decided considering all of this I need to set my sights lower. Since I was diagnosed w/ thyroid disease 3+ yrs ago I've had in my head I need to get back to normal and I've continually tried to push my body. I'm mentally and physically tired of pushing. I mourn the idea of what I could possibly accomplish but going for it is not working for my body and leaving me depressed when my body doesn't cooperate. So, I just want to move and I'm not trying to get to a certain place. We'll see if I can manage to chill a bit, embrace MoveNat more not trying to do anything crazy, walking and moving, working around the house, inside and out.
