I knew it had been a while since I last posted, I just didn't realize how long! One reason I had held off was because we had been told that Aaron was going to be one of the newest Jackson Kayak regional team members. It took a while for it to finally come through and I had hoped to make an announcement on here because I am so proud of my husband! Once it finally came though we were busy with some other stuff and now here we are, about 3 and a half months since my last post.
Unfortunately I do not have anything great to report in the weight loss department. I can report that in early December for various reasons (non that are good), I stopped taking my depression medicine. I am still off the medicine and doing well for the most part. I have moments where I question being off them but I do feel that I'm handling things well. I'm working really hard to think about all the things I am grateful for and to pray.
I am working hard to get the house organized because we plan on being here for a really long time. We are working hard to get our budget worked out and I know that these things will help me be less stressed. Aaron and I are working to get our elliptical in the house so that we can both get moving. I really want to run a half marathon and while a treadmill would be better, an elliptical is what I have to help get me moving when running outside is not an option. I have never really considered myself a runner. In middle school I could run a pretty quick mile but I don't think I ever ran more than 2 or 3 miles at a time. It was normally just a mile for a warm up. I did take a running class when we were in The Woodlands and I was starting to enjoy the time alone with just my thoughts. I'm hoping to not rely on music while I run except for maybe having it just in case on long run.
Prayers are greatly appreciated as I continue to try and move forward with my exercise and weight loss!
