Weight loss week 5

so have just come from seeing my nutritionist. It went really well. Drumroll please…

I was down 1 KG or 2.2 pounds!

In the past 5 weeks I have gone from 16 stone 1 pound to 15 stone 10 pounds. I am thrilled! Losing it slowly is the best way to lose it!

I set some goals for myself for the next 7 days. They are:

Drink 2 litres of water a day

Exercise 5 out of the 7 days

Use lin seeds to help me move my bowels

Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables

Keep an eye on my mood and my energy levels

I’m very satisfied with my progress though over the last couple of weeks. I keep losing even though I’ve allowed myself to have a couple of treats. I think I’ll reward myself with a book this week.

2 appointments

this morning i have two appointments. first i see my OT mark. at 8:30. we had to have an early apt because the psych doctor who uses the room we’re using will be needing the room at 9 AM. Mark and I are going to have a catch up. We havent met in a couple of months, but we’ve spoken on the phone a lot. We need to see what we’re going to work on now. He had been helping me with the work stuff but now that I’m not continuing with trying to get a part time job, we need to see where we are going to go from here.

After my apt with mark I will see dr. barry. She is back from her holidays, yay. We are so excited to see her. We have a lot to discuss with her. Especially around her break and our feelings around that. We also have a st. Patricks day card to give to her. The kids are looking forward to giving that to her.

Its going to be a busy morning.

A nice afternoon

Yesterday we had a really nice afternoon.

Myself and another member of the basement club, and the co-ordinator went for coffee and cake. The co-ordinator took us to say thank you to us for doing the talk last week.

It was a beautiful sunny day and we sat outside. The restaurant had a scrumptious menu full of gorgeous cakes. We all chose to get hazelnut and raspberry roulade. I got a latte, and the other member got tea.

We sat chatting and sipping our tea and coffee and munching on our cake, it was so good. Nitro was with me too and he was having a great time because another man came along with his king charles dog named patch and they made friends.

We stayed there for about 2 hours. I felt happy and content. It was nice to have a couple of hours of just socialising with others, it made me feel normal, no anxiety, no low mood, no ptsd symptoms, it was just awesome.

Shopping disaster

OMG. I just went grocery shopping with Kristen. We were going up and down the aisles, getting what I needed. The next thing I knew, a whole tray of croissants went on the floor. My purse had knocked them. The people who were working there were really annoyed. It was a fucking accident! They kept giving us dirty looks and talking amongst themselves I’m sure about what happened and what I did. Kristen was going to report them to management. But I told her not to. I feel really bad now. I really didnt mean to knock them I was just distracted and didnt take care when I passed them. God, sometimes I’m so clumsy.

i want her, i need her, scaredness

i want eileen so bad right now it hurts i hurt my heart is hurting i just want a hug i need her i want her to make everything better and tell me i’ll be ok so sad so alone so scared so so scared i just need her i need a hug and reassurance that this is ok and i’m not crazy

Share your world March 13th

Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

No. I dont believe that pushing it makes things go faster. I push it once then try to stay still as the elevator goes but I get agitated easily and fidgety and anxiety takes hold!

Do you plan out things usually or do you do them more spontaneous (for example if you are visiting a big city you dont know?)

I’m spontaneous. I never plan anything. I just go with the flow. I like adventure.

Describe yourself in at least four uplifting words.

Caring, generous, loving, friendly

If you had a choice which would be your preference salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, ocean cruise, hot tub, ski resort or desert?

Definitely beaches and hot tub! I love both of those! Very relaxing just my cup of tea!
