18 August 2015

So a bit of frustration last night with my class. I opened my book that was shrink wrapped so I could start reading, then decided to get on the site to start with the first homework assignment and realized the book I ordered that said it came with an access card didn't have an access card. There was no way for me to know there was no access card until I opened the book. So, I'm trying to contact the seller to see if they didn't include it, or what because I really don't want to pay another $100 for the access card when I already paid $160 for the book. Darn school costs too much! So, luckily the site offers a 2 week free trial so I can try to figure this out, and if worse comes to worse I'll be paying more money for the card.

On other fronts, I talked to my hubby last night about my doctor's visit. He was not happy that I decided on to get the Depo shot. He didn't realize how horrible I've been feeling with the IUD. He told me that he didn't think I did well on the shot mentally. And looking back at that time I was not a happy person, I would just get angry, and we fought a lot. So maybe that isn't the right option for me either. I'm seriously contemplating just going without anything and seeing how I do. If I feel good mentally and physically then it will be worth it, but I DO NOT want to get pregnant. I love my kids, but I'm not prepared for any more.

In good news, I woke up early and got my workout done, so I have plenty of time to do homework tonight and maybe even go for a walk if it's not raining. I am liking the feeling of getting the exercise done in the a.m. so I am done for the day and anything else is extra. So even with the dilemmas and frustrations, my day has started out on a positive note and I feel good.

I hope everyone has a great day!!

Happy Monday! It's kind of like fall here today, only supposed to get into the low 70's and gloomy. I'm not going to complain though, I'm ready for fall. :)

I recorded a little bit of a gain from last week, but I know why I gained, I didn't do well with my evening snacking last week, so that gives me something to work on this week. I did get my jar salads made for the week, so I have no excuse not to eat well for lunch. Dinner is still going to be my main issue this week, but I'm going to work on moderation with some of the foods that aren't so good and I need to learn to just say no to second helpings.

I did well with exercise last week. I only took 2 days as rest days and the other days I did at least 30 mins and a few days I also went for walks in the evenings. Saturday I was feeling exhausted and I had a migraine, so I ended up sleeping the afternoon away on the couch, but I needed it and I slept all night too, so I knew my body needed the rest.

Today I head to the doc to discuss endometriosis and other issues related to TOM (like migraines). That won't be fun because those topics make me really uncomfortable, but I need to get some things figured out. Hopefully she'll have some helpful hints at least for me because right now I'm missing work at least 1 day a month due to my issues. No more!! Sometimes being a woman is rough!

Today is the official start of a couple of college classes too, so I'd better get them started. I'm going to read while my daughter is at volleyball practice tonight, I'll only have about 20 mins, but at least I can use that time wisely. I love taking classes and learning, but I get burnt out really quickly too, so hopefully I'll be ready to take a couple more classes next semester. I have never gotten my Associates and that is a big goal for me right now. I'd love to have it done before my daughter graduates high school.

Enough about me for today. I hope everyone has a great Monday!!

EDIT: Back from the doc and she's going to remove my IUD. She said my hormones are just out of whack and probably some endometriosis. So, back on Depo shot and see if that helps in the next 3 months. She said no BC pills because of the stroke risk and my history of migraines and family history of stroke. Hopefully I'll start feeling better with the shot. She said if I don't get better we can think about a permanent fix like hysterectomy, but being so young it has it's own risks and side effects that may be worse. I'm going to try and hold that off as long as I can.

14 August 2015

I almost made it through the week getting early morning workouts in, but I slept in today. My little dog who has back issues has not been sleeping well at night and with the kids going back to school he's having a hard time getting back to the routine I think. He usually alternates nights sleeping with the kids, but for some reason he won't sleep in my son's room now. It could be the steroids he's on that are not letting him sleep. He slept in my bed last night and was restless, panting, wanting to lick the bed, whining, just anything but sleeping, so I didn't sleep. I needed the extra time in bed this morning and I should be able to get my workout in this evening, so I'm not going to be too hard on myself.

Last night I went for a walk and did a Zombie Run app. It was kind of fun and silly, I'm going to try to do it this weekend and actually run with it, maybe the zombies will chase me. ;) If I can do that and get my scheduled workouts in it should be an active weekend.

My eating hasn't been the greatest this week, but I'm keeping my lunches and snacks at work mostly in check. Dinner and night snacking are always hard for me. I am actually hungry at work for things like fruit and veggies, then I get home and it's like all I want is junk. I guess at least most of my day is spent eating healthy, so I just need to work on that time home after work. I'm going to try to find some make ahead dinner ideas so that I'm not feeling rushed after work and there are no excuses to make junk. This is why Pintrest exists I guess. :)

It's been a super busy week and I'm so ready for the weekend!! Have a great Friday and a great weekend everyone!!

12 August 2015

I was up early again this morning. I actually was exhausted last night and went to bed a little early which probably made the getting up early easier, go figure. :) Now that my workout is in the books, anything else will be an extra bonus.

I got my son off to school this morning. He was so excited to go back. Every year I'm excited for them to get a new year started, but sad at the same time. My daughter starts tomorrow and she's ready, but not as excited. But at her open house last night she was smiling and really positive about the teachers, which makes me feel good.

After open houses last night we got home and were all starving, so my kids pulled out some leftover pizza and I ate it too. Unfortunately I ate too much of it because I wasn't even thinking about what I was putting in my mouth and if I was full or not. Needless to say I completely blew my RDI, but it didn't stop me from getting up and starting again today. I have my healthy lunch and snacks ready, I got a workout in, and I'm planning to get a walk or maybe play a game of volleyball or basketball with the kids tonight, so today will be better.

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!!
