I am having a downer of a day literally. I woke up at 3 AM again and now realize that is because that's when the barometer is going straight up or down these days. The fog is still in at noon which is kind of unusual - it generally burns off in by no later than mid-morning. I am feeling it in a big BAD way!
Again, I got up early and read "Starch Solution" but my eyes snapped shut at 7 AM for a nap of three hours. If this happens I know that the day is shot, as I never get out of the fatigue/pain parts - even with an extra cycle of sleep.
I had a ton of things planned today. Mostly working in my yard - it's not going to happen. I'll do paper work instead - I have tons to do. Or if I feel too funky I'll just curl up and read more of "Starch Solution", "Vegan on $4 A Day", "Everyday Happy Herbivore and I am buying "My Plastic Free Life" for my NOOK today too.
Listing all these fantastic books is cheering me up. When I languish like this I feel realy non-productive, especially so because I am in too much pain to drive to the gym or do anything there of use! I tried that yesterday and and it was abysmal and as much as I willed myself to do more I did a very feeble 1/2 hour.
I am not worried about that huge weight gain though - it's weather related water retention for me. I've got terrible sausage hands today - so it's very obvious. Still a 3 pound gain on the scale does something to my mind set
I am really happy with the blood pressure though. I need to look up what it's come down from ( started at 124/84 PR 92 now 108/74 PR 66 ) - because it's a big drop for me and back to my historical range ( 110/60 for most of my life) .
I didn't have BP probs when I started but I was getting there - just like the pre-diabetes thing. I feel confident that these things are behind me - though I know being overweight is not good at all - I am (well I was yesterday) no longer obese and that is something that bells should chime for I think.
In that context -- all is good and hehehehe - the sun just came out this very minute, well for one minute it did. The sun was smiling for me and my progress - just for a wee bit!!!

Over again on fruit maybe - need to figure out if my morning fruit is a serving - I don't think it really is?
