We’ve been without Vitamin C tablets for a little over a week. I didn’t think much of it until on my way back from lunch yesterday. I started to feel something in my nose and it got worse when I got home. I went to bed early hoping I could sleep it off. Nope. I needed to sleep in this morning to make sure I got my rest.
Went to work today and felt ok. I was more conscious of what I was eating and how much. Probably my best day in a long time. People are still coming up to me and asking me what’s I’m doing and how much I lose. It’s interesting about the timing of the questions since it’s been a stalemate for a while. I’m very grateful and encouraged by their comments. I have lost 43lbs and that’s an accomplishment.
Tonight I worked in the yard. 4-wheeler time, but still working moving equipment around and cleaning stuff up. Such a beautiful evening with the smell of the new hay bales coming from the field. There were moments with my oldest son when we would take a break and take the 4-wheeler through the mud and water. I could feel his smile as he was screaming about the water coming up around us.
When I got home I tried to do a little 20 minute ride on the exercise bike but I just had no energy. This part is frustrating. We have the vitamin C now but I really didn’t want to get sick. I just want to keep plugging away, do my exercise, eat healthy.
This is a very long journey. But tomorrow is another day, another opportunity.
