Bare with Me

Hi, world! I do still exist. It's pretty amazing that you've stuck with me during my dry spell of updating. You guys are just awesome!

Let me start by saying that these past two weeks have been crazy, exhausting, blessed and simply amazing. It is definitely my intention to fill you in on all of the great things you have missed, however; you'll have to wait a little while for all that.

Some good news that I can share with you right now is that my "intuitive eating" has been going super well. I have lost 5 pounds these past two weeks, weighing in at 228 lbs. Steering away from counting every calorie has been a really freeing experience. Losing weight in the process is just an added bonus!

As for exercise lately, I've just mostly been walking. Walks with my dogs and amazing husband has been the best kind of exercise for me right now. To be honest, after the work I have been doing these past two weeks, I'm completely exhausted by the time that I get home. I'm usually couch bound until bed; even going to bed as early at 7:30 some nights. I've noticed, however, that if I eat many small meals throughout the day, instead of just three meals, that my energy level stays a little more consistent. That is, when my stomach isn't upset. Like I said, it's been an exhausting week. I'm going to work on doing more small meals throughout the day, this week.

As for my running, I haven't been doing much of that. Actually, I haven't gone for a run in a couple weeks now and, I probably won't be running for a while, either. The plantar fasciitis in my left foot has healed a little but it's by no means cured. I would like to lose more weight before running again. The extra weight I am carrying around definitely doesn't help my foot heal. I'm just thinking, the less impact I add to the injury, the better.

So, that's what's going on with me; at least, as much as I can share with you for now. I'll be sharing everything with you soon. Just bare with me these next few weeks! I'm hoping to have some good recipes to share with you for the week ahead and I promise to be more present for you all, too.
