Exercise, Motivation

Busy weeks.

It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve weighed myself again with all the chaos we have going on right now.

I’m going to try my best to remember to weigh myself tomorrow morning. I also want to try and wake up at a better time than I have been lately. I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately.

Eating good has been kind of difficult lately. We’re broke at the moment with all the stuff we have going on and so therefore I’m not always eating the best stuff possible for me.

I walked a lot this weekend and danced a lot at the concerts we went to so that’s good. I walked for 30 mins last night and then quit because I was so friggin tired. My allergies are terrible right now. So much for only having fall allergies.

I plan to exercise every night this week though and we’ll see what I weigh tomorrow morning.

I believe we’re having pork chops, couscous and veggies for dinner. I’m determined to watch my portion size tonight. Wish me luck.

On Plan

Slowly getting back on track!

I’ve been getting back on track. Eating pretty good and exercising more.

I need to find a different meeting to attend for the next few weeks. I have so much going on each Saturday for the next month or so that it’s necessary. I really enjoy the meetings and like the conversation and etc that goes on. So, I might attend one during the week after work for now.

Life is so busy and the weather is so nice I don’t want to be inside blogging lately. I apologize but have no fear I’m still trying hard every day! I’d love to reach my goal of 199 by March 31st! Let’s see how it goes! That’s like 6 pounds I believe! Maybe 7.


My Health, On Plan

Finally got to weigh in….

And…I gained 3.4 pounds. Really not that bad. I can totally lose that again!

I tracked yesterday and partly on Saturday and Sunday. I plan to track the rest of the week as well.
I exercised for half an hour yesterday and hopefully an hour tonight.

All in all I feel pretty good the past couple days. I’m sure the 70 degree weather helps a lot. I am going to go and pick up a bathing suit today to ensure I have a cute and comfortable one for our weddingmoon in Mexico!

That’s all I have to report today. I do have a follow up DR appt on Friday so here’s to hoping my blood pressure has come down.

Motivation, weight watchers

Craving bad food?

So, I’ve been wanting junk food the past couple of days and it sucks. Because I’m not satisfied til I get some crap food in me.

I know all I can do is go home and eat a decent dinner. Exercise and go to sleep and do better tomorrow. Right?

I’m still doing really well on not having pop. I only want one sometimes. I haven’t gone to WW in a couple weeks and I think I’m going to go this week BUT I might not weigh in. I know I’ve gained like 5 pounds since my last weigh in and that sucks but I know I can get back to that if I focus hard enough. But I think if I go to WW and weigh in this week I’ll be even more motivated. I’m just so stressed right now it’s so hard to focus on losing weight when my mind is not in the game right now.

So, I guess that decides it…going to WW on Saturday and weighing in. I’m paying the monthly fee I might as well go and get my butt in gear right?


My Health

Blood Pressure and Me.

My blood pressure has been slightly high for about 2 years or so now. Not terribly high but steadily slightly high.

I have been on a water pill which was supposed to help with my BP. It slightly did. Then when I went to the Dr on Friday afternoon my blood pressure was pretty high. I was freaking out and scared and didn’t like how I was feeling at all. My DR did and EKG to show me I was ok and an echocardiagram on Saturday morning. All is well.

She changed my blood pressure medication and told me she’d like me to quit my birth control because that could be making my blood pressure high.

She gave me the prescription for the new blood pressure medication and a note to take to my gyno about putting me on a non estrogen based birth control.

I felt pretty blah yesterday and was not feeling too awesome. This morning I got up and took my prescription in to get filled. After a few hours I felt better but had a slight headache and felt a little dizzy and tired. I read on the insert that came with the medicine and read that those are symptoms of starting the medicine. So, I’m hoping in a few days that will go away.

I did not take my birth control last night and plan to stay off of it until I go to the gyno next month for my annual appointment. I have to go back to the dr in 2 weeks for a check up.

It sucks that I’m going through this crap at 28 but maybe it’s  from the birth control for all I know. SO, I’ll see how it goes.

As far as my pop situation. I had one on Friday evening and it sucked lol. I had 3 yesterday while we were at a party with some friends. I have had none today. I’m doing good and reaching for water more often or some crystal light. I bought some gatorade while I was out today and needed something.

I’ll keep you posted on how I’m feeling through the week.


My Health

Heart Palpitations or something????

I have decided to try to go without diet pop. I’ve been told by many people, and have read on my own, how bad it is and how it doesn’t help weight loss.

I’ve become very dependent on it. So, this week, we did not purchase ANY diet pop. We have water, tea and crystal light. Monday I only had maybe 4 ounces of pop and that was the last I had any.

So, starting yesterday I started feeling a fluterring or something, sometimes in my chest. Didn’t hurt just, felt weird. Yesterday I attributed it to caffeine withdrawl.

Today,  I was still feeling it and decided to have some caffeine. I still feel weird so I called my DR and they want me to come in at 4. Now, I’m even more freaked out and I have to meet with a new DR today and since I’m nervous I know my blood pressure is going to be high. I can feel it in my body. It’s like I feel how nervous I’m making myself and feel my blood freaking out inside of me. But I guess I’d rather be safe than sorry. And, I know I won’t feel ok until it stops or a professional tells me I’m ok. Preferably the latter.

In other news I feel pretty proud of myself for giving up pop (soda for you other folks). I’ve felt tired a few nights and a lack of want to exercise because I’ve been tired. I’ve also eaten something bad yesterday and today attributing to my not losing any weight this week. I know this is just even more reason to keep it up and continue losing weight, eating healthier to a healthier, long life.

I’ll let you all know how it goes.
