This past week has been hard, not like a little hard, but like seriously hard, just want to lay in bed and cry, hard. One of my dear sweet friends passed away last Thursday. She’s had tons of health challenges for as long as we’ve been friends, but she’s always beat them. I figured this time would be the same. I’m sad and mad that I didn’t go spend time with her last week. I’m sad that she’s gone. I’m just plain sad. The only thing positive about this past week is that I didn’t eat all my feelings.
I have a tendency to eat when I’m sad…or when I’m happy. It’s how I grieve and it’s how I celebrate. This week, although I wanted to wallow and eat ice cream and mashed potatoes and mac and cheese or frosting right out of the container, I tried to make healthier choices. I knew that poor choices wouldn’t make me feel better…and would most likely make me feel worse. I guess I should be thankful that I was able to make healthy choices and that the scale moved in the right direction.
Last Week’s Weight: 245.5
Today’s Weight: 243.2
Weight Lost This Week: 2.3
Total Weight Loss: 24.5
I also had a sick kiddo this week. James was complaining about ear pain. I didn’t feel like dragging him out of the house to the doctor, especially with so many people fighting the flu. I tried Amwell for the first time and absolutely LOVED it. You get to choose your doctor and chat with them online. It was definitely a silver lining to this crappy week. I was thrilled that I got to stay home, wrapped in a cozy blanket, while still making sure my kiddo got the meds he needed.
This picture pretty much sums up my week. Lots of time spent in sweats and a t-shirt, wrapped in a blanket.
We have company coming next week and I’m hoping that having friends in town will help me feel better and get me out of my sadness funk.
