jody Posted October 22, 2015 Report Share Posted October 22, 2015 FOOD LOG:Breakfast: It was about 7:30 this morning. I sat on my love seat and ate 2 cups of fruity pebbles, dry (I was out of milk). I ate alone, with my dog staring at me with those forlorn eyes, hoping I would drop something! While I ate my breakfast, I browsed news apps on my phone. Something I was hoping would engage my mind, and help me wake up! I was feeling super tired and lazy, and wanted to go back to bed. After I was done, I did just that.Lunch: It was about 2 in the afternoon, and I felt ravenous! I had just dropped off my daughter at work and stopped by In-N-Out burger on the way home. I had a hamburger with onion and extra pickles, a french fries, and a medium coke. I also used a catsup packet. I ate alone, in my car, while parked and listening to the radio. I felt incredibly hungry before I ate, while I ate I was in happy-ville, and after I ate I felt contented.Dinner: I have not had dinner yet. I might report dinner on tomorrow's log, just before breakfast. I am still working out the kinks on how I want to utilize this "battle log" thing.ACTIVITY LOG:Fetch with Rowdy: I played fetch with my australian shepherd, Rowdy. We played for about 30 minutes. This is a minimal exertion activity on my part, generally.Nerd Fitness Beginner Body Weight Workout: Well, I tried anyway. I am a big woman, and my body weight is enormously difficult for me even standing, let alone in movement. I did not do more than one "circuit", and my "circuit" was modified to: 20 body weight squats with my walker, 10 modified push-ups (on my knees) with a lot of rest between each one, 8 "lunges" (I can't do a proper lunge, have to find a modification until I am more fit than I am currently), 10 dumbell rows with a 3 pound dumbell, 0 second plank (I was unable to assume that position, need a modifier), and 10 "jumping jacks" horribly modified because I am completely unable to jump, but I did try it, and was unable to do more than 10. I am so out of shape.SPIRITUAL LOG:Listened to K-Love on the radio, I love that station.PrayerSOBRIETY LOG:I have been sober for 68 days now.I am working on step 4, inventory.MENTAL HEALTH LOG:I have really struggled with my depression lately. I have missed quite a lot of work, actually. I sometimes forget to take my medications. It is not that I don't want to. It's just that, even with alarm reminders, I get absent minded. I will turn off the alarm and two seconds later forget what I went to go do (which is go take medication). It's very difficult to manage my mental illness. I saw my psychiatrist yesterday. He gave me two new prescriptions. I have not started them yet, I am always nervous about starting something new/different. But I will start them, and I will be as compliant as I can be. 1 Quote A year from now, you may wish you had started today. Link to comment
