The end of the school year is a weird time for me. On one hand I am excited to have the summer off and be away from the kids for a while. But on the other hand I do all the end of year testing and it is very stressful getting everyone in and out of the computer lab, making sure their scores are higher than they were at the beginning of the year (must always show improvement!), and keeping everyone on task. 11-1/2 more days!
Because of EOY testing I haven't been able to do my morning walks which upsets my whole day. Those walks help clear my mind and put me in a good mood for the day. More than 2 days in a row with no walk and I'm grouchy and irratible and I know it. Pity the kid who crosses me in the lab! Last night I texted DH before he got home and told him I needed a long walk. If it was just me I would take a walk but not go as far as I needed to. DH pushes me to go further and further and by the time we returned home I was feeling much, much better. The crabbiness had left and I was able to go to sleep without too much stress from the day.
My weight loss has stalled again. I don't know what to do. You would think I'd be a slim jim by now but I really don't look that much different. Sure my clothing is hanging on me but the scale just doesn't move much. What is the deal? My doctor is gonna scream at me in July if I haven't dropped 20-40 pounds by then. Doctors seem to think it is super easy to just drop weight when they tell you to. She said to "only eat what God has made" which I have taken to mean only fruit, veggies, meats since I am following low-carb to keep diabetes in check. That has worked thus far since I am no longer considered actually diabetic but prediabetic, so I'm doing some things right. But she is gonna look at that number on the scale and I'm failing at that right now. I need positive thoughts sent my way for sure.
