My week has gotten a lot better. I’ve worked out some problems that were seriously troubling me, son’s blood sugar is looking better today, and we’re learning how to give shots again so the rough surfaces of the beginning of this week are smoothing out. The stress is easing up.
I found a great, brand new blog. It’s called “The Shrinking Vegetarian” , written by an Australian. How cool is that? Very, I think. I love those Aussies.
I’ll link to that blog in my sidebar because I want to follow her on her weight loss journey. It’s funny how we’re ALL the same. We all have the same struggles and confusion, but over time, it all makes more sense. I’m looking forward to watching her journey. I haven’t found anyone new in a long time. Hop over there and give her a boost of encouragement!
BUT…Shrinking Vegetarian, I tried posting a crazy long blog comment and a little short one, and your system didn’t accept either. I saved the long novel, so that if you send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org, I can shoot it off to you. But I did want you to know that your comment thing doesn’t seem to be working. It didn’t tell me you were holding the comment till approval. It just gobbled it up and…it was gone.
Soooo, people, *I* am lifting weights! Yes I AM. These big, heavy weights with the #3 printed on them. OK, so they’re only 3 pound weights. But it’s HARD.
My trainer created a new strength plan for me for this month, involving a stability ball, resistance bands and torture devises. Oh alright, no torture devises. The stability ball and bands are winging their way from the Amazon fairies, where all good things come from. So for the time being, I’m improvising with the only weights I do have.
I actually like lifting weights. I can easily develop hard-core hatred for some exercises, for no known reason – to the point where I would almost rather have another baby than ever do another set. But I think I like the weights. And I’m hoping the bouncy ball LOOKS so fun, that my mind will think that it’s fun.
It’s all about staying one step ahead of the brain.
