Life right now is well-reflected by this salad-in-a-jar that was my lunch not too long ago.
Things are contained, but basic and kind of boring. Oh, and lazy.
I haven't been doing too well on one of my goals for the year, which was to get back to my baseline weight. I started the year doing really well... and was so close at that time. But somewhere in that timeframe, I got the stomach flu and then treated recovery like a free-for-all since the holidays were just ending. Suddenly, all the treats I didn't feel like eating that were still lingering around the house fell victim to my post-illness buffet.
Shortly after that, Baby Tuesday had a string of poor nights, some illness related, that left me going for carb-ville. I'm now required to take yearly A1C tests to monitor my blood sugar, and it didn't really go in the direction I had hoped. So I know I need to do better, but man.
I currently feel (and probably look) really terrible, and all of that happened within a month. In January, I mentioned that I ran 31.5 miles (all in the second half) in attempt to average about a mile per day this year. February is on track so far. But even running/more consistent exercise could not counter stress/tired-ness eating and the fact that the time of weaning is 99% upon us and we've suddenly transitioned to mostly decent nights of sleep. I think it has just been a lot of fluctuations that I'm not dealing with very well.
The baby, on the other hand, suddenly learned how to walk and hang out like a big boy. This is timely, as it opens up more activities. Activities are much-needed. So fun!
