🌄 Day 281/365

This was taken just after first light. The color sort of evaporated after that, so I’m glad I was awake and ready for it.

Forward motion this week. Often I push so hard during the week, the weekend wipes me out. I’m gonna be steadier about it so I can fit a little fitness into my daily life. At the doctor’s office yesterday, I was informed that overworking myself and stressing out is not the same as going for a hike or a swim or walk on the beach. Dang it! Why can’t stress build muscles? I’d be so fit and sturdy. Oh well. 

I’ve lost a bit of weight in the last year and my appetite is perpetually slight (since I was a child) so next week I get to start meeting with a dietician to figure out a healthy eating plan. I have absolutely no confidence in this whatsoever (this is not my first rodeo) but I’m always open to new information and open-minded that maybe there’s some trick or piece of advice I haven’t heard that will help some aspect of my life, even if it doesn’t cure me. The sleep therapist was wonderful but didn’t help my sleeping. He did however help me to feel at peace about my sleeping issues, and not stress over it. If I can achieve the same about food, perhaps it will give me enough of a boost to go forward with a little more promise and hope. Stress, apparently, is not helpful for eating either. Go figure.

It’s good to give it a chance, regardless. Just hearing another person’s perspective can be life changing. I do wish to be a thriving, healthy person. I gotta allow for the possibility that I might benefit from someone else’s wisdom.
