Yesterday was a good reminder for me of why I need to change the way I'm doing things. I had a migraine. A completely debilitating thing that started Sunday evening and didn't completely go away until late last night. The nausea-inducing pain subsided a little earlier in the evening so I at least got to have a nice dinner in and watch a movie with Jason, but overall it was a wasted day. Then I felt ill all night because I had popped too many pain pills and my stomach did not appreciate it.
I was supposed to go to work for a half day yesterday and then trot over to the grocery store to stock up on veggies and chicken so that I could plan my healthy meals over the next few weeks. Then I was supposed to be a scintillating companion last night as Jason and I rang in the new year together.
I woke up this morning and weighed and measured myself. Holy cow, that was depressing! My weight is extremely out of control and I've gained back almost all the weight I worked so hard to lose several years ago.
But at least I know where I'm starting from for real, so when I do make improvements, I'll know exactly how much progress I'm making.
I scrambled some eggs for breakfast and put the black-eyed peas on to cook. I just checked the grocery store websites and they're all open so I'll be heading out soon. While I feel bad for the employees who have to work today, I'm glad I get a grocery store trip do-over, since I was out of commission yesterday.
Happy New Year everyone!
