Last week was a challenging week. We had the builders in renovating our bathroom and I was starting Lyrica. Not to mention a whole other ton of issues that aren’t really relevant but were still there.
Last week I sucked at being “Paleo.” I was either starving or had no appetite, and there were far too many cheats in there. I mean seriously Steph and I shared a small loaf of freshly made bread in seconds. (I mean freshly baked bread, who can pass that up when it’s right there in your face?) Clearly not me.
So, as I was saying, far too much crap, not enough working out, and just all over not a good week. That being said, I managed to lose 1.5 pounds. So go figure. (Of course I had a really upset stomach on Friday, so the weight loss could be due to that.) Not that it’s stopping me from counting it as a loss. 🙂
This week I hope to be far more on plan. I have a goal in mind that I really would like to hit by the time I go to London. (Of course not meeting the goal won’t change anything, but it is something I would like to see happen.)
As far as the Lyrica experience went, it was “ok.” It wasn’t great, I had plenty of moments of brain fuzziness and had a lack of mental acuity Some days were harder than others. I explained all of this to my GP today, and we did decide to raise the nighttime dose. I decided this because I am going away in 2 weeks and if there are going to be side effects that are worse, I want to know before I am in London. This way I can have until the 8th (when I see my GP again) to see how this dosage goes and how I feel and how cognisant I am on it. And we will go from there.
Are you going on holiday or a trip soon? If so, where? If not, where would you like to go?
