I had intended to stop writing my Friday's post because I felt I had nothing to post about. I thought doing it once a month would be an alternative. My girl has been reading my posts so I asked her if she would be disappointed if I don't write my Weigh In Friday today. Yep, she would. So I decided to carry on... This one's for you, my darling daughter!
Part of the (secret) reason why I wanted to skip my Friday's post was I didn't want to find out how much weight I have gained over the past 7 days. I believed I have gained weight again based on my amount of inactivity, food intake and tightness of my shorts.
First thing this morning, I stepped on the scale and horrors! The scale read 58.9kg. Much to my relief, the word ERR came on. Wow, I almost fainted. I stepped off the scale and stepped on again. Then I stepped off and on again. And again.

The last 7 days I did try to improve my diet but I failed miserably at exercising. I've even stopped haunting the supermarkets. I think I reached a point where I'm too tired of my gut condition. On reflection though, there were other issues which affected my state of mind. Firstly, my kids got sick. My daughter is in the middle of her national exam so her being sick really stressed me out. Then my son also got sick. His national exam starts Monday. I'm also terrified I forget to wake my kids in the morning on days when they have exams. Plus my sleep has been horrible. It all started on Sunday.
The funny thing is despite all the chaos this week, I have been my most productive in a very long time. I spent most of my waking hours working on my bag pattern. And I have made so much progress. I am this close to finishing it. I showed hubs 3/4 of the bag I was making and he said it's beautiful. Did you hear that? He said IT'S BEAUTIFUL.
My dear friends, I am so proud of myself. Today would be 4 months since I have taken any panadol or pain medication. In the past, I would not endure any headaches or pain without reaching for a pill. Since panadol has no effect on my wind induced headaches plus the doctors have asked me not to take any pain meds if possible, I have been a model patient. Being able to work despite the headaches has been such a breakthrough for me. Sometimes I am so absorbed in my photographing or writing up the instructions, I actually forget I have a headache or a screwed up gut. Those moments are so sweet.
My one goal next week is to exercise. And it would be sweet if I don't gain any more weight.
