28 January 2015

I went to the doctor yesterday for a checkup for a prescription refill and to discuss some issues with the doctor. When I went in I had a fever, which I didn't even realize, I felt kind of crumby, but I didn't think I was that bad. So I got an antibiotic, which I've probably needed for a couple of weeks, hopefully that will kick this bug out. She also told me that if my annual thryoid test came back normal that she thinks some symptoms I've had lately could be from endometriosis. So, either way I'll be taking another pill, at least for the next couple of months.

Having the various ailments that I have really makes me wonder why I can't keep myself on the healthy eating and exercise bandwagon. I know if I eat better and exercise I feel better, but I can't seem to stick with it. I'm not feeling sorry for myself, I'm just really trying to figure out right now what I need to do to get motivated. It seems like I get motivated, then I don't feel good and quickly lose motivation, then I have to work hard to find that motivation again. So I guess the goal for the week is to figure out what I need to do to find my motivation again. Maybe it's just making myself do it and getting into routine more than finding motivation. Things to ponder I guess.

Hopefully I'll get my test results back today and find out which pill I'm taking and be able to make a plan. It's time to get going and pull myself out of this up and down (well mostly up) track I'm on. This broken record is getting old.

I hope everyone else is doing great and having a great week so far!!

I'm up a little this week, but that's to be expected. I got sick mid week last week and finally by Sunday started feeling better, so no workouts. I did get a workout in last night and should be able to get one in tonight. I also ate better yesterday, more veggies, so hopefully if I can stick to that eating I will feel even better quickly.

My dad moved from the local hospital to a facility to rehab from his stroke yesterday. The new facility is about 3 hours away, so we won't see him as often, but we're hopeful they will get him more mobile. My mom went with him and she's pretty worried about him being there by himself for 3 months, but I'm sure the time will fly.

Not much new today. I'm working to change my mindset and remember why I started out on this journey in the first place. Who cares about being skinny? I care more about feeling good all the time and getting stronger physically and mentally, and unfortunately eating junk all the time will not get me there. :)

Have a great day!!

After a couple of days of exercise my body is feeling it. I'm not so sore that I can't move or anything, just a little muscle soreness. But, it feels good to be getting back into the swing of things. I'm trying to make an effort to eat better too, and if it's not working, force myself to eat better. It's been a struggle, but every day I can do a little better. Right now I'm not really worrying too much about the numbers or how many carbs, fats, or proteins I'm eating, just more about what I'm eating and not reaching for junk. After only a few days of making some better eating choices, and not going to bed after gorging on junk, I already am feeling better, physically and mentally. The exercise has helped my mental health too.

Today is my rest day. Partially because I have to work late, and partially because this is my hubby's first work night of the week, so I figured it would be a good scheduled rest day since we have to have dinner earlier. I'm going to try my hardest to get out of bed to workout tomorrow morning, but we'll see how that goes. I've been sleeping horribly, so I don't know if I'll be able to get up, but I'll try.

I hope everyone is having a great week so far!

It's been a long time since I've been on here. Life has definitely been busy with the holidays, work, my dad in the hospital, and just life in general. I apparently have found plenty of time to eat junk and couldn't find time to exercise, judging by my weigh in. It always seems so much easier to get motivated in January than in November and December. Maybe it's just the free time I now have, but whatever it is hopefully I can stay motivated.

I did a workout on Saturday and I'm still feeling it today. I'm going to get another workout done this evening. Yesterday was all about cleaning the house, shopping, and finally taking down Christmas decorations. I truly have no excuses not to get workouts in at least a few evenings per week and on the weekends now that the holidays are over, so I need to stick to them.

Eating has been a hard thing for me forever and the holidays just solidify that I love too much. No more baking for me until November! I'm glad my hubby feels the same way, now we can both make healthy choices together. No more junk! Tomorrow any junk that is left in my house is making it's way to my work kitchen, because I won't touch it there. I've had my share of junk, now it's time to get to work and get rid of the junk that's still in my trunk. :)

I hope everyone had a great holiday season and is starting the new year off with a bang!!
