I think I'm getting better at handling stress though. I didn't have a super-serious asthma attack, and while I've had some migraines that could be as a result of the stress, they haven't been super severe either. Once I got the last bit of bad news I stopped trying to get anything accomplished and took some time to pamper myself. Took a nice long soaking bath, had some comfort food (but not too much), and spent a long time reading and then crafting. It worked :)
The only problem is, once I started feeling better emotionally? I started feeling sick. I don't know what's wrong, just that I'm really tired and my tummy is upset. *sigh* So I've spent most of the last two days sleeping and not done much more than that.
So here's some good news! Or at least interesting... We bought a scale this weekend because since I've been getting stronger I want to be more active about trying to lose weight. At first I was just going off of my frequent weigh-in's at the doctors office, but since a good amount of time has passed and this "getting stronger" trend has continued, we decided to buy a scale so I could keep track in a less haphazard manner. Buying one was a whole adventure in and of itself because the first one I bought was broken and it tried to say I weighed over 300 lbs. LOL
Once I returned the original scale and got one that worked, I confirmed that I haven't really lost any weight recently, but I have tracked my inches and stuff and I've lost some inches! Well. Kinda. I lost inches on my stomach and abs, and gained it on my hips and thighs. Taking my measurements I was like "yay! Yay! boo...what???" I retook them and my first measurements was right. I've got a theory though. In the last two weeks I've done a lot more walking around (running errands and such) and I've done a lot more trips up and down stairs...so my theory is that I lost some fat in my tummy area and gained some muscle in my hips and legs. I'll take it.
