Because, I am awesome!

Last week I had a day where I was surrounded by negativity. SO much negativity I could feel my heart being squeezed and my aggravation towards everything was growing by the minute. It was terrible! At one point I even shouted at everyone to be quiet because I was so overwhelmed. I don’t know how people can live their lives each day surrounded by so much negativity and the need to make others feel small and feel that what they know is all wrong.

I was told that the only way to lose weight is to get diet pills. I was told I could lose 30lbs in a month. But everything I know, tells me that’s not healthy.
I was told that with diet pills I could keep eating the way I wanted. But I know I can’t because my cholesterol and triglycerides won’t change then!
I was told I couldn’t afford to have kids. But, I know we’d find a way.

I felt SO defeated that day and the next because of this. I felt miserable and that everything I was trying to accomplish wasn’t worth it.

But I have amazing friends and people I can count on when I need a boost.

Rachel reminded me I’m losing weight the healthy way.
Liz tells me I’m awesome.
Sheryl tells me I inspire her.

When someone tells you that you inspire them, it makes you feel so amazing. If I’m inspiring my sister, I can’t stop now! I have to keep going!

So, this week I’m thankful for my amazing friends and family. I’m proud of the 10lbs I’ve lost since January and proud that I haven’t given up yet.

I’m determined to get healthy, and when I go to the DR on May 1st, that scale will reflect the positive changes I’m making and I can only hope I’ve done enough to make positive changes in my bloodwork as well.

I’m here to tell you, that you can do ANYTHING you put your mind to.¬†Jenny Bomb is Losing it

I know I can lose weight and I’m not giving up.
I know we will have a child when we’re ready and we’ll figure it out.
I know my photography business is going to be great and I’ll figure that out too.

BECAUSE I AM AWESOME!

 

 

SICK AGAIN!

So, last Wednesday I woke up with a terrible cold. I was 100% stuffed up and was feeling the effects of post nasal drip and my mouth was so dry from having slept/breathe through my mouth all night.

I was miserable. None of the medicine I was taking was helping. I couldn’t taste my food, the pressure was terrible, it was not pleasant at all.

Thursday morning, no change – same amount of miserable.
Friday morning, no change – still ridiculously miserable.
Saturday morning, NO CHANGE – STILL MISERABLE!

I couldn’t take it. I called my DR. I went in fully knowing this could just be a cold and he could not help me. And that’s what happened. He did tell me the best medicine to buy for my cold and sent me on my way.

I stopped at Kroger to pick up the Mucinex-D from the pharmacy. It’s the expensive one with the stuff they make meth with. I also got some chicken soup, orange juice and reese peanut butter eggs because I wanted them. haha. I went home, made my soup and watched a movie and ate and napped.

Sunday was a little better. Not much, but, a little.
Monday was even better. Still much of the same but no pressure but coughing to help clear congestion.
This morning I’m really feeling the effects of the post nasal drip. I’m not as congested but still congested and I could really use a nap and it’s only 8:44. Although, I just took my Mucinex, that should wake me up soon. I hope.

So, due to being sick and going to the DR I did not go to weight watchers this week. But, I have not had much of an appetitie while being sick and weighed myself and I was down to 211! So, I’m hoping to keep this streak going.

My appetitie is back and I did so-so yesterday. I could’ve done a little better though.

Today I’m ready. I’ve got some oatmeal for breakfast. A veggie burger for lunch and dinner will be good as well.

I’m just hoping I can stay awake today…

It’s been awhile and I need some help!

It’s been awhile and things have FINALLY started to slow down and I know it’s time to start focusing again.

Anyways, I’ve gained around 10lbs. I haven’t been weight myself, going to weight watchers, exercising OR tracking. Literally everything I should be doing, I haven’t been. I can’t seem to find what’s needed to motivate me right now.

I’m going to weight watchers tomorrow though. I am going to get on the scale and take the hit. Maybe that will help. Tomorrow starts a new week. I can do this right? We’re hoping to move out by the end of the year. If we have room I’m buying a tredmill so I have no excuses when it’s too cold or hot out. OR I’m going to join a gym.

But really, I need motivation, badly. I have to go to the DR next week. I was thinking of postponing it but then again, I need to go and see how everything is going.

Any suggestions on what I can do to get motivated and realize I can’t keep this laziness up. HELP!

Also, I think maybe some new meal and snack ideas might help.
