Hey everyone! I hope your week has been going well. Mine has been so busy it the business continues! I'm looking forward to Sunday, which will be the first day I can just CHILLAX. You know me, I love my chillaxing time...
Sometimes I feel like I tell you stories or bring up issues, and then I never remember to update you on how things turned out. Today, I'm going to update you on a couple things that have been going on in my life! I'll update you on some more stuff next week, hence this post being "Part 1".
Prehypertention: A couple weeks ago I went to the doctor and my blood pressure was pretty high. I thought it was because I was nervous, but they still gave me printouts about things I could do to lower my blood pressure! I made the rash decision to stop adding salt to my food. I am proud to say that I haven't added any salt to my food since April 10th! Okay, there is ONE exception. I added salt to the delicious dinner Paul's dad made us on April 23rd. But other than that, I have not picked up the salt shaker. Should I keep going? I do really miss salt.
Our salt shaker is from Alcatraz!
Gaining 4lbs: At this same doctor trip, I accidentally saw how much I weighed and I wasn't happy. I weighed 4lbs more than I wanted to. I went a little crazy for 4 days and started tracking my calories and macros. I was in a dark place during those four days. Counting calories reminded me of a time in my life when I was very unhappy. On the fourth day, I weighed myself and was down 2lbs. That calmed me down a little bit and I stopped tracking everything. I am out of that dark place. It sucked. But I learned I CANNOT EVER KNOW HOW MUCH I WEIGH. It's sad, but it's the truth.
We still need to keep our scale to weigh the cats.
Tap Class: I have been taking tap for a little over a month and I am enjoying the teachers and my classmates. We are learning two routines for a recital at the beginning of June. I do wish I was in a harder class as this New Beginner class isn't very challenging. I'm not saying I'm perfect at everything because I'm NOT, but I want more of a challenge. I am thinking about finding some videos on Youtube that can teach me some skills so that maybe this summer I can join a more advanced class. I will not rest until I am in the most advanced class the studio has to offer! (This will likely take me years.)
Tell me how some of your long term and short term goals are going!
