Happy New Week, My Freaky Followers!

We are digging out closets, drawers, and storage areas as we prepare our house for sale. We have carpet and paint happening in late May so we have deadlines for certain activities. I hope to market in June, sell and move in August - we are leaving the frozen tundra of Minnesota and going to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina area! Any South Carolina peeps out there?

Today I started my increased thyroid medications - both my T3 and T4 drugs. This, of course, impacts metabolism so I am hoping this helps Idiot Box movement.

I am still on the weekly mega dose of vitamin D3 for 9 more weeks so it will take time to know which change will best help my process.

My work and teaching schedule is interfering with the gym a little - so I was able to only go three times this week, and will only get three times this coming week. I prefer four visits! I think I will try to add a weight lifting day at home - I have a pretty good combination of dumbbells - NO EXCUSES!

Happy Mid-week, my Fitness Freaks (just a joke!)

I got to Orange Theory Fitness today and felt pretty well. It is the end of March and the Idiot Box has done "0" in six weeks...I am astonished given my CICO - I post EVERYTHING I consume so it is not about overeating, and I get my calories burned from BMR and my workouts - usually four per week including weights.

SO - I got my endocrinologist on board and he has increased my T3 and T4 medications, and my APRN has me on the 50,000 IUs of Vitamin D3 one dose each week - apparently low D3 can stall weight loss. These components may help - but will take time...

SOMETHING should get my metabolism going - it is amazing I am doing what I am doing really...my body feels backwards.

My favorite trainer says I might try bumping up my calories 100-150 a day to see if my body is just holding on...Ha Ha - I so doubt it, but I guess I will try. That calorie bump works for "normal" metabolisms - mine seems to be screwed up right now with many variables in the mix.

However, I NEVER GIVE UP! I WILL FIGURE IT OUT!

Greetings my brilliant followers!

Ever wonder why I write a list goals all the time? You have to know where you are going if you want to get there - even if there are stalls or delays to your goal. They say WRITTEN goals can make a difference rather than just having them in your mind. What are your goals?

When we set a goal, we are making a commitment to a fictional person psychologists call, “future you.” Future you is the person who will have to actually do the things you promised your present self you would do. When you say you will exercise more often, save money, or read more, you are committing "future you" to fulfill a promise made by present you.

Set a goal. Make a plan, Achieve the goal!

Welcome to our weekend, my fantastic followers!

SO, many new thoughts going on in my head today! My deficient vitamin D3 impacts a person's ability to lose weight - duh - yup!

This is why the Idiot Box is stuck after six weeks of regular exercise, and eating with a 600-900 calorie deficit. Then, adding on the fact I have thyroid disease with low T3 - I contacted my endocrinologist today. NOT Excuses - but mitigating factors!

My favorite trainer told me to try eating 1250 to 1300 for a week or so and see what happens...I believe it is metabolic right now so it will not necessarily help. I can eat 1000-1100 and feel satiated. If I have not lost at that rate, then something else is going on in my body.

On the other side - I am doing well at the gym - I am starting to push back into using 35 lb, 30 lb and 25 lb dumbbells again! Functional Fitness is improving!

Getting back to my dead-lifts, goblet squats, bent over rows, etc. These movements engage my hip muscles so something is coming back! Upper body has been a process of just regaining my strength back so using pair of 30lb weights for chest presses, and pair of 20lb for pec flys on the bench is moving back to what I once was able to do - but not all the way there!

HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL!
