Frustration

 

Well,  in my last email I tried to attach an audio file about getting inked but it isn’t working. So, back to the more traditional way of blogging. J

 

Some of you might know that I’ve been going to the gym;making a change like this has been challenging for me. One reason is the transportation. I have to use our para transit service since the gym best suited for a blind person and a guide dog is over ten miles away and not easily reached with a regular public bus. More on this later on in another blog.

 

Next is the lifestyle change and scheduling. I tried one schedule and it felt like I was never home and always on a freakin’ short bus. Last week I switched things around and I’m working on a Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday schedule, which seems to be better. Just getting in the third day is a success for me, too. I was really avoiding it but now it seems to give me a boost energy wise and I don’t feel like I’m living in the Twilight Zone’s Alternative Realm of Short Bus Travelers.

 

As for the weight loss, since I have this fear of weigh-ins due to crippling depression when I disappoint myself, I have chosen inches and instead am finding success in how my cclothes are fitting, etc. I have a weigh-in with my doctor later this month and that will be the first time in four months I will be revealing to myself if all this work has even made any difference in terms of my weight. I am metabolically challenged and I haven’t yet come to terms with it. . Changing my eating habits have been even more difficult. I’ve managed to cut down on portion sizes but I still have intense cravings during hormonal cycles, etc.

 

Anyway, all in all, I feel much better and hope that the summer gives me that extra boost of energy.

 

As for this blog and some of the blank posts, I’m trying to add a plug in for audio files via drop box and hope the webmaster and I can figure it out. For now, I’ll keep trying to post text and see what happens.
