Health Quest Weekly Update- Week 4

tape-403593_960_720.jpgI wish I could be saying how awesome everything has been… but I need to be honest. My health quest took a nose dive this last week. Between traveling across states for medical appointments for my hubby (which we thought would just be a couple days and ended up being the whole week) and my getting the cold to beat all colds… things didn’t go so well.

I am not even going to step on the scale right now.

However, we are home again. We have to go back in about a month for more tests for him, but for now we are back to home base. I am still sick though. Seriously our first day in Minnesota I woke up with an awful cold and it hasn’t left. When we drove home again I think it just got worse. I didn’t even go with poor hubby to a lot of his medical stuff because I figured so many people at the Mayo Clinic were already dealing with horrible diseases like cancer and stuff- they didn’t need my germs added to the mix! Luckily too, our hotel had a shuttle to Mayo so that made it pretty easy.

I did swim at the hotel pool one of the days I was there, but that is the extent of my conscious exercising. And I ate horribly. Even though we got a hotel room that had a kitchen and we bought some groceries, we still ended up having fast food for pretty much every meal.

But, now lets look at the future! I’m home again! I’m still sick… like pretty bad. So, I am not going to push myself to do aerobic exercise just yet. However, I am going to start eating better again today and doing my yoga. I downloaded a new app called Yogatailor that I’m excited to try out (they have a free trial that I am going to be using for now, but then it is subscription). Haven’t used it yet but am planning on doing it today, so I’ll let you know how I like it! Then, once I can breathe again, I will start doing walk/jogging again later this week.

Thank you all for your support! Check back tomorrow for another post- I am back!

Update

Just a quick update-

As I said previously, we had to go out of town for some medical stuff. I had hoped to be gone for just a couple days, but it looks like it will be quite a bit longer than that. I apologize, but I will not be able to be writing blog posts during this time.

Thank you for your patience, and don’t give up on me! Hopefully I will be getting regular content out again starting next Monday. If not, I will post another update at least. Love you all! 💜

Health Quest Weekly Update- Week 3

Last week was a little rocky on my health goals. I started out the week strong, even did a treadmill 5k on Monday and did a couple days of 40 minute workouts, plus yoga every day. Then, the end of the week didn’t do so good. I went for some short walks outside with the hubby, but didn’t really exercise for Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. 😦 Not even yoga.

My eating has stayed about the same… sort of in the “eh, I’m trying” category. Not great, but not horrible.

I did end up losing 3lbs, which is great and better than nothing! But… I also don’t really trust it yet. 3lbs is too easy to just be fluctuation.

This week coming up is going to be super hard on me. We are travelling for some medical stuff to be done in another state so all day Monday will be travelling, and then Tuesday to -who knows when- will be at the hospitals. Then another day of travelling home. The hubby has had some big health struggles for the past 11 years and we are hoping to get answers and… well, hope.  However, with all of this going on I don’t know how much I’ll be able to take care of myself either mentally or physically. The hotel I’ll be staying at has a pool and a fitness center so I’m theoretically planning on keeping as active as I can when I’m there. But, we will see. I also just bought a big bag of Reeses Pieces… so much for no sweets.
