Yet another installment of my Health Update Thursday and here I am again apologizing for being MIA. Once the new year hit I had high hopes that this year was going to be as good, if not better than last year and unfortunately, things have not turned out that way.
See, I'm an optimist. I included the yet.
These past few weeks have been horrendous with the constant physical and mental ups and downs; one week I'll be doing decent then the next I'll be bedbound. I never know what tomorrow is going to bring whether I'll be out of bed, in bed, walking, with a walker, in pain, too tired to move...All the constant physical, emotional, and mental changes really wear on a person's spirit, let me tell you.
I'm so back logged with everything it's ridiculous-there have actually been days to a week at a time where I couldn't even sit up enough to be on the computer!
Now that was rough.
Today consisted of feeling like crap, being exhausted all day, leg weakness and pain, joint and muscle pain but the good news is I was somewhat productive and got a little bit done here and there when my ADD mind would let me.
The weather here in Illinois isn't helping much either. The Universe granted us two whole days reprieve from the dreary and cold Winter weather with sunshine and near 40 degree temperatures but like the rest of this season, it didn't last for long. Another ice storm is forecasted to hit Wednesday evening into Thursday and I foresee not a lot of people going anywhere in that!
As for me, I'm faced with some very serious issues I need to deal with, one of which might be giving up blogging for awhile if I can't get my health issues under control. Being so back logged with everything has me stressed and that might be contributing to my continual ups and downs. The decision won't be made for awhile because I have obligations to fulfill, but it's definitely in consideration.
On top of everything else we think some of the issues I'm having are due to consuming a decent amount of sugar on a daily basis (Hello, my name is Kayla and I'm a sugar addict *CueTheCollectiveHiKayla*) so I'm doing my best to cut out most of it until we know for sure it's adding to my problem(s).
Oh, and I also unfortunately had to put my 30 Day GoGoGirl Fit Challenge on hold because I'm not well enough to exercise. I just had to add that in here so people don't think I'm just lazy and skipped out on working out!
Needless to say, there's a lot going on that I'm dealing with and it ain't an easy time for me right now.
As always I thank you, my friends, readers, and supporters, for sticking by me and continuing to read and follow my health and wellness journey. You guys are why I love doing what I do :)
