Out and about

A big part of my journey is learning how to push myself to get out and do stuff even when I’m not feeling 100%. If I waited until I felt good, I’d never be getting out. This weekend, we went out every day for an hour or two and just drove around to thrift shops, did a lot of walking, and a lot of sweating. Thrift store shopping may not seem like the greatest form of exercise, but it’s definitely a start. One I get my back and leg muscles more used to walking around, it will be easier to venture into yoga and other fitness methods.

I didn’t score any “major” finds during this weekend’s browse-fest, but a couple small knickknacks and the feeling of accomplishment for pushing myself to get out there and not be a slouch all weekend. I am a bit sore, but I’m understanding more the saying, “No pain, no gain.” Even though I am hurting, it is the kind of hurt that comes with the satisfaction of knowing it’s because I pushed myself to my limits and came out on top.

I don’t have a whole lot else to report at the moment – the scale was down a pound or two, but I’m not going to take too much stock in that until it drops a little lower and stops fluctuating so much. My blood sugar has been a little erratic, but I’m seeing patterns and know how to avoid the spikes. I’m trying to cut back on Splenda, because I do feel kinda sluggish and get more headaches when I’m consuming it. I’m not a huge fan of stevia, but I may try to use that or monk fruit the next time I bake something that I’d normally use Splenda in. I found a coupon for stevia/monk fruit, so it couldn’t hurt to give it a try. Splenda is kind of a crutch, and one I don’t wish to lean on for much longer. I know there are better options, so it’s time to get out and experiment.
