So my weight yesterday was 205.4 lbs. I have been taking magnesium supplements for about a week now and it has been very interesting in that it has taken about that long for my crampiness to settle down. I assume that means I was really low, still a hint of precramp feeling sometimes, but much better overall. I have also noticed a big improvement on the regularity side of things - for as long as I can remember that has been an issue for me. No longer! And you are so right Pam, I was foraging - not very successfully.
What a week!! Huge bills on all fronts - taxes, more taxes, transmission repair and more. Thank God hubby has lots of work lined up - and the folks are needing more money too. Just trying to get my head around the fact that we can't have our own place for probably at least another year ... we had been so focused on preparing to move and there were lots of assumptions involved I know. I guess I am kind of grieving that I have to live on someone else property for another year, no planting trees and bushes, no buying a cow, no fixing things that bug us, no painting the dreary interior of the house ... but on the plus side, we can focus on trying to get my folks sorted out and pay off debt. Two really big things. Maybe I won't have to pack up and move yet - that's good right!?
And I really want to get my focus back on getting healthy. The nice weather does make me feel more energetic and interested in getting out and doing some exercise, gardening and walking are lovely on days like today. Our new routine is working pretty well (except today when we had to go to the chiropractor this morning - in the usual school slot!) I couldn't face trying to get the kids going on 'regular' school after doing all our going to town errands at the same time. So they are listening to historical novel audio books and I am calling it good. Bought them both a little cheap travel alarm clock and they can wake up as early as they like now without me having to do it for them. Daughter was up at 5 am today reading and doing the chicken chores Lovely! I usually have to almost drag her out of bed. I am sure the novelty will wear off soon - but it is that much more independence for them and less for me to do... nice.
