I'm up a couple more pounds having weighed in this morning, but TOM is due to start in a day or two and I indulged a bit in some Indian buffet deliciousness last night (been a looong time), so I was completely expecting it. No big deal. I know it's all water, since I'm pretty tuned in to what the symptoms of excess water look like on me...to that end, I got another appointment with the internal specialist on the 19th to see what he recommends next as far as dealing with my full-body edema...it's going on nine months now without answers...so frustrating.
The last week, though, I found myself disinterested in eating as much, and I haven't been. I'm going to make a more conscious effort to get my intake up again this week because I'm into this a month now, so there's no point in going half-assed and having it get me next to nowhere as far as healing my metabolism.
My sleep this past week has also been really crappy...I was at the point the week before where I was sleeping like the dead through the night. This week, not at all. I've been waking up many times a night (the mister has been sleeping very restlessly, though, too and with his predisposition to steal the whole damn duvet and thrash around and elbow me, it's no bloody wonder), been way too goddamn hot (window's been open and the thermostat is never above 18C at night) and just feeling worn out during the day as a result. Not optimal. The only thing I can think of that's been different is I started a daily squat challenge on the 1st with some girlfriends and am doing a couple hundred squats a day...but they aren't leaving me feeling overexerted or sore or anything, so I don't think I can lay the blame there. I have been working out a bit most weeks, doing some free weight and bodyweight exercises a couple times a week. I haven't gotten a lot of slow movement in lately, other than standing at my desk while I work and the natural constant movement that goes along with that. I'm hoping the weather will stop sucking (Leida knows what I'm talking about, we just got a giant dump of snow here overnight) and I plan to start getting out more in the afternoons/evenings, even if it's just for a jaunt around the block.
My morning temp is still up there (for me), it bounced around between 97.7 and 98.1 this past week. One weird thing I noticed this morning, though - the right side under my tongue was 97.7...the left side registered 96.9. I tested both sides twice, same thing. And I've noticed a few times later this morning that I can feel the difference in temp on the left side (feeling with my tongue) over the right. It's so weird.
Anyhow...things are still going relatively well for me, so I plan to keep at it, despite feeling fluffier and squishier than ever and like I'm stuffed into my clothes most days. I know it's temporary, and I'm looking forward to getting my metabolic issues handled. The weight will come off with time, I know this.
Hope the rest of you are keeping well
