28 August 2015

No workout this morning. I'm going to try to get one in this evening if I have time (and energy). TOM is hitting me hard right now, headache and fatigue are terrible. Yesterday as the day went on I was so tired I was mindlessly eating and I think it was just my way of trying to stay awake. I was nodding off on the couch at 8 and probably could have slept until at least 8 this morning. I got home and couldn't even make myself make dinner, so we had leftovers. Hopefully as today goes on I'll wake up a little bit.

This weekend we're going to the state fair. Tomorrow night my hubby and I are going to the Keith Urban concert. Sunday we're taking the kids and my hubby is taking my son to ride the rides, and my daughter and I are going to walk through the exhibits. My daughter for some reason didn't want to do rides this year, so I told her we could go look at the "stuff". I think it will be fun, but my weekend will be busy with fitting everything else I need to get done in too. I hope along with walking at the fair I can squeeze my workouts in so I stay on track there, especially if eat any food at the fair. I won't go for the fried foods, but we'll do pizza or burgers and probably some ice cream. :)

I hope everyone has a great Friday and a wonderful weekend!!

After the fiasco yesterday with not knowing if I was going to make it to my doctor appointment, I did make it. Thank goodness. Once it was done I felt like a weight had been lifted. It's crazy because I had a pain in my lower abdomen for a while and when she removed my IUD I felt the pain in that spot and then it was gone. So, I think I made the right choice. I've also decided that I'm going to stick with depo for at least one more shot and see how I'm feeling. I just need to journal my feelings for that time and see if I have a change. Maybe if I can stick to eating a little healthier and exercising I'll feel better mentally with the shot. Time will tell.

After my appointment though I didn't eat well the rest of the day. I was studying and just mindlessly eating. The weight was lifted off my shoulders and I guess I felt I needed to put it back on my middle. Today will hopefully be better, but that's up to me.

I got my workout done this morning so at least that's out of the way. This evening I work late, then we'll probably have dinner late, and I have to take a test and help the kids with homework, so we'll see if I get any other activity in. I'm really tired today already too, so it may be an early to bed night and that would be okay too. I just need 1 more workout to get my goal of 16 workouts in for the month. I can do it!

I hope everyone has a great day!!

Down a little today, but not too surprising, I was actually under my calories yesterday. I didn't eat the best for dinner, but kept my snacking under control, so that helped. Today I'm still not feeling the best, but I know that's going to be the way it is for at least another week. I did get up and do a workout this morning, and I'm going to try to keep doing them. Last month I let my TOM get the best of me and quit doing workouts for a couple of weeks, but not this time. I'm going to try to keep doing my workouts because they don't make me feel any worse and do me more good than sitting on my butt. I'm really going to try to stick with it!

I'm anxious for my doctor appointment this afternoon. I'm so ready to have this thing gone, but nervous about what will be next. I researched a little bit last night about balancing out hormones without BC and there are some natural options, so maybe just some more research in the next few months will help and I can see how I feel. I also think if I get back to low FODMAP that may help me at least a little during these times too. Well, talk is cheap, I need to put my words to action!

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!

EDIT: Well my hubby threw a wrench in the works because he was supposed to pick my son up from school and now he can't and of course he gets out within 15 mins of my appointment. I know I won't be out of there before school gets out, so I may have to reschedule the appointment. Ugh. I don't want to keep dealing with this. Can you say FRUSTRATED?!

Woke up feeling crumby this morning, so no workout. I tossed and turned all night and then had a headache and stomach ache this morning. No fun, but TOM is hitting and it always makes me feel terrible. I felt good the last week or two and it hits me so hard once it hits. Tomorrow I go to the doc to have my IUD removed, so hopefully that will help, but I still don't know what I'm going to do for the long run. Hopefully my hormones will level off without any BC and I'll feel great, but I have my doubts. I'll discuss it with the doc tomorrow and get her thoughts.

Last night was not a good one for eating or exercise. I didn't eat well and didn't get off my butt all night. I was doing homework so it wasn't like I was just watching TV, but I still felt lazy. Tonight hopefully I can get a walk or something in and then get up tomorrow morning for a workout. I have homework to do tonight (just like every night), but hopefully I'll get done early enough to get out and enjoy the nice weather and clear my head. I think the evening walks do wonders for my sleep because when I go it's like the whole day and any stress or worries just melt away and are left in my tracks.

I hope everyone has a great day!

I'm up a little today, but that's pretty normal. I'm going to be happy with myself for doing some good things last week and not dwell on a small gain. I'm hoping to do well with my exercise and better with my eating this week. I actually got exercise in over the weekend and didn't snack like crazy.

Today is my rest day, so no early workout this morning which was good because I was up watching Fear the Walking Dead last night. Tomorrow is my least favorite workout, it's also my hardest workout so go figure. At least it's not a long one.

My focus this week is going to be on my eating. I am still struggling in the evenings with dinner and snacking. I know at dinner I eat too much just because it tastes good, then eat a snack later whether I need it or not. Having tea before bed helps with the want to snack, and I still may have a snack, but I'm not raiding the cupboards for more. My focus is going to be on my snacking and trying for fruit or veggies instead of processed junk.

Not much else for me today, just work and homework. I hope everyone had a great weekend and has a great Monday!
