I'm going to be 33 on March 10th and it's about time I got serious about losing weight. So I'm starting over with healthier foods, less calories, and more aerobics. I've done really well on cutting down on my cigarettes so far. From a pack a day to 13 in about 2 weeks. . And I've lost some weight but the problem is I keep putting it back on. I'm tired of this cycle and it's time for it to STOP! My Plan is to do 20-30 min of aerobics 5-6 days a week, Strength training 2-3 days a week (20-30 min), and 30-60 min of yoga 6-7 days a week. I've mainly been doing a lot of yoga and I forgot how much I've missed it but I really need to up the cardio and strength training. However I am going some place healthy for my birthday dinner. It's a Mongolian barbecue place they cook your meal on a hot stone with water, NO OIL!! So Yummy!!
Unfortunately my sinus infection has gotten worse and I'm on antibiotics, steroids, and pain killers. The good news is my neurologist put me on low dose blood pressure pills last Monday and today was the first migraine I've had in 5 days! That's the longest I've gone in 2 years! Lots to celebrate!
I am totally stressed out about losing weight. Constantly, totally, without a doubt. I berate myself for every slip up and I keep getting pissed off at my week body for getting sick and making it incredibly difficult to workout. The lupus has taken a major toll on my immune system this freakishly cold winter I've been getting sick constantly. Currently my sinus infection has taken a turn for the worse and I'm in a lot of pain, swelling, and my left ear is completely deaf with the right one following it. But I'm mainly stressed out about how this will affect my exercise routine. I also have to get a root canal filled and I'm starting another somewhat new med Monday night that makes me really sleepy. I am just stressed and anxious and I feel like I will never be back to my old self. I put a lot of pressure on myself and I'm really hard on myself when I fail. Way too hard most likely. Just frustrated at the moment.
Finally feeling like myself again! Unfortunately I have an appointment with my neurologist at 1:45pm today which I am not looking forward to due to crazy insurance policies and my crazy father. I'm just hoping things go well and I don't end up in tears. For some reason I've been very emotional lately. Mainly just angry. And I'm not really sure why. But on a happier note I'm back to exercising and on Wednesday I will be out of town for 5 days! Yay! My computer is in the shop it went crazy but luckily I still have my kindle so I can keep in touch as much as possible! Thank you all for your support through this! I'll
So happy! I lost the weight I gained over Valentine's! Now I need to lose a little more before Wednesday When I take a 5 day trip to see a friend from college! I love seeing him but we don't do a whole lot. I'm still going to keep with my yoga and try to do a couple of videos from the site. And I'll be logging on everyday! I'll try to put in food but we usually go to hole in the wall places or local restaurants so it's hard to know what to put in for calories. But I'm doing really good so far today! I'm just very happy over all!
