Once again, everything is normal and perfect at my OB appointment. My blood pressure is something super-low: 100/60. I can see everyone be all shocked, as they're watching me for that because of the whole advanced maternal age thing. I've gained about 15 pounds. I'll be taking another blood-glucose test in the next couple of weeks.
OK, here's another day in the 30-day song challenge that I cannot do.
I have my definite share of faults, but I am not prone to anger. I'm simply not wired that way. Oh, I can put on a show on occasion to let people know I'm serious, but it's a bit of an acting job.
I think it's hormone- and age-related as well as just general personality. I know Paul, who does have anger issues (which shocks virtually everyone, as he seems meek and choir-boyish to those who don't know him well), struggles much less now than he did when we first got together 18 years ago. When I met him, too, he was much calmer than when he was younger. Women tend to cry when they're angry or frustrated, and I can't remember the last time I did; when I was younger it was more of an issue.
I've lost 90 pounds since October 2007. And I still have more to go. There are lots of great things about having lost the weight; there are other things that have been difficult. I also write about my running and activity -- primarily so I have a record of it.
Now, though, I will be gaining some weight again -- as I'm due with my fifth child in early December. People (quite rudely) ask if I were planning to get pregnant. I'm 44; I always say we were "shocked but happy." I'm still following my diet plan; exercise has tapered off a bit, but not completely.
See the link to the plan I'm following below. Per FTC disclosure laws, I will mention that I received the elementalyou services for free. Additional services I have received free from Tiffany include her being the doula at my third child's birth as well as her providing child care and educational instruction to my children and her making me countless meals and margaritas (before I went on plan).
