I feel really tired this weekend, am not medicating with food though, just acknowledging that I am tired, and letting others know. Not worrying about stuff that can wait, but doing what needs doing, otherwise being restful and calm.
To be fair, I've had my period, and a busy week (what's new) my body is healing a new tattoo - it's to be expected that I may need a quieter day on occasion!
Yesterday was spent waiting in for the xbox to arrive and having my family visit to 'do' birthday cakes. (Mine was a couple weeks back, my sister and brother both this week). So my parents, siblings and brother in law came up for a couple of hours, with cakes.
I had my results back from the lab stating that yes, my blood sample had shown I had antibodies. No big surprise, but now it feels like there's no way the voice in my head saying 'maybe a little is fine, maybe the pain is eating too much food, and not the wheat at all...' will be taken seriously.
My sister had a giant cupcake. Moist chocolate cake with heaps of chococream icing. My brother had a marzipan madeira. I had a (lovely!) vegan, wheat-free dutch apple cake. I cut the others up, and dished out without even considering having any. Had a small slice of the 'safe' cake, and after everyone had gone, cleared away the leftovers. Didn't think to eat any, or have to restrain myself, the desire wasn't there - yay!
This morning Sam has gone out with Seth and the girls, shopping for a new coat, leaving me and Kai alone for a bit. He's been playing xbox and we've both had a go at the fitness/movement stuff.
We got Kinect Sports 2 free with the console bundle. It's a fun game (track and field world champ now, me) and after London 2012 the kids are a lot more aware of competitive sport, so will probably rate it more than they might have done 6 months ago. Dance Central 2 download came free too, have done 4 tracks on 2 player with Kai and had a good laugh. Hardly a work out, but fun and better than sitting on the sofa!
Had a go at the Biggest Loser trial workout, which although only 10 minutes long, heh(!) WORKS you out!!
Will be buying that one for days I cannot get to the gym/snow etc. Really did push me. And the globby blobby 'me' jelly sculpture in the bottom right was motivation enough. (It looks even worse when moving, all the wobbly bits wobble!!! Have probably done about 45 minutes light jumping about, as well as 20 minutes working properly - which can't hurt on an 'off' day!
Plotting a light dinner, and maybe a run later.
