Post-Christmas Weigh-in

Well, I think I did pretty well over Christmas break... especially considering that I spent it with my relatives. Anyone who has spent any holidays with them knows that there is food EVERYWHERE... We pretty much graze. And the meals tend to be very... filling!

And not only did we have my immediate family's Christmas, we had my extended family Christmas too. And my in-laws came this weekend. Lots of food!

Add to this the fact that I had more days off of work than usual... so instead of running around the pharmacy, I'm at home, usually sitting, holding a baby. That doesn't equate to continuing to lose weight!

I also went to the doc over the Christmas break concerning my blood pressure. I've had high blood pressure for quite a long time (even before I gained my current extra weight), and my family has a history of high blood pressure too, so I've started taking some BP pills to try to control it.

The doctor also wants me to do a sleep study to see about me possibly having sleep apnea. I'm always asleep... so I don't have any idea if I've got it or not, but I know that I don't feel rested and my wife tells me that I have really weird snores. Hopefully the sleep study can figure out what's up... so I can feel rested!
