I feel lost and alone.

Friday, July 25, 2014

I have been getting really sick after only 30 minutes at the gym of cardio or lifting. I tried cardio only and it was still happening, I tried lifting only and it still happened... I tried changing my snacks before and after and still happening. I get to the point where I am sick to my stomach and light headed... and it lasts for HOURS. I thought it was a good thing to prove I was pushing myself... I was making changes and my body would get used to it. I thought I needed to up my pre workout snack and it would even out but it didn't change.... I have hit the point now where I cannot workout for more than 10 minutes or I feel like this for days.

I called the doctor and he said he could not tell me what's wrong without doing blood work and he does not have any appointments before I leave in 8 days for Vegas and the honeymoon. I cannot get in to see him but I cannot workout wither... What am I to do? Where does this leave me?

I feel lost... I feel alone.

    I'm a little late to seeing this but I would definitely call the doctor once you get back! I would have said try another doctor before but I think it's too late now since that was a week ago.

How are you feeling now, any better? Did something happen or change that started causing it?

Lastly, I think your wedding is this weekend? Since you said you leave in 8 days and that was last week Friday. Have a wonderful wedding in Vegas and honeymoon!

    That is certainly a change to take notice of and I'm glad you're paying attention to it - I hope you'll find another doctor or clinic that may be able to see you before you travel just to be safe. It could be just stress or it could be something else, but take some rest. Sue is right that exercise is only a part of the healthy life style. Eating well and resting when you need to are big parts too.

I hope everything in these last days before the wedding and honeymoon go smoothly and happily for you emoticon

    Do you have an Immedicenter of a Medi-Quick or a CVS Minute Clinic or some other sort of walk in medical facility near you? GO TO IT. The first thing I thought of is your blood pressure, but it could be any number of things, and not to scare you, but some of them are life-threatening. This is important, and something you need to do before you fly. Please do this - many places are open on weekends.

    See another doctor? Maybe a sports medicine specialist? I don't know you, so please don't be offended...but could you be pregnant? Even if you saw a doctor right away the results of the blood test wouldn't come back until after you were gone. So just do what you can right now.
You'll get this figured out. Even if you have to wait until after your wedding. You can still eat well in the mean time. You can still watch your portions, make your own meals, try new recipes, eat your veggies, and decide not to sit on the couch and watch tv while eating empty calories. Exercise is only part of a healthy lifestyle.

Don't give up.

P.S. Hope you have a great honeymoon!

    Your health is first. If you feel sick while working out don't do it, or do it in short spouts, do not overwhelm yourself. Ten mins here and there might be better than just doing it all together. Keep eating right and wait until you see your doctor to do anything else. I hope you feel better and have fun on your trip!

So, I am looking forward to a lot of things coming up in my life...

--The wedding will be here before we know it...
--Work is getting more busy which we need and I love...
--I am more excited about Europe then I am my wedding (Shh...) I've never been out of the country besides on a cruise and I am looking forward to it.
--I am exicted to marry my best friend. I love him so much!
--I am excited to try new food and be with him for two weeks exploring some place he has never been. Almost all vacations we have taken, he has been there before.

I am most excited about maintaining my new lifestyle while over there. I will try new foods and not limit myself but I will portion food out and I will definitely get workouts in. I am looking forward to working out in a new places and being active!

    It's coming up so quickly! I'm excited for you.

My cousin just got back from his honeymoon to Europe they did a few days at a beach resort in Spain, then went on to Barcelona, Paris and then Italy. So not the same places that you're going but they loved it. They did so much walking that I think you'll be fine with getting workouts in or being active. Europe is the type of place where you walk and site see. I wouldn't worry about your weight too much while there. Enjoy the food but don't go overboard, ya know?

I hope you have a great time there!

This months seems to be a roller coaster ride for me...

Early in the week, I was in a mad dash of stress... Food sucked, working out sucks, life was getting me down and wedding planning was driving me nuts but now


I feel amazing. I worked out yesterday. I am getting stronger with the running and following the C25K program. My final dress fitting did not stress me like I thought it would. My food is on track and work is busy but not so busy I cannot manage it. I feel great!

I feel good. I feel like the running helps me get things into prospective and I cannot wait to go again tonight. I never thought I would be a runner and while I am at a snails pace, I am pushing myself and will call myself a runner.

Today I am 31 pounder lighter then I was one year ago... Slow and steady wins the race right?

I never imagined being this stressed out so close to the wedding...
We jinxed ourselves with how easy it was in the beginning; even with it being destination. Everything seemed to fall into place for us. We were lucky!


It is chaos. It is hectic and I am losing my mind. Prices keep changing from original contracts, expectations are going down and my insanity level going through the roof.

The only positive I have is through the stress of work and the wedding, I have managed to keep my stress eating away and I will still be getting to the gym this evening.

    Sorry to hear that things are getting a little chaotic, but I'm proud of you for not stress eating. That can be tough!!

If you have copies of the contracts with prices, show them to the people who are trying to change things. Put your foot down and don't be afraid to enlist help (parents, fiance, bridesmaids, etc.) if you're getting overwhelmed. They're there for you too!

    Oh no! Sorry that the wedding is turning so hectic now! Sounds like you're doing good handling the stress. Work out the stress instead of eat it.

    You have a great attitude about wedding planning. :) The stress is temporary, but the choices you make have more lasting effects. Good for you for choosing health! :)

Mistakes but feeling good

Friday, July 11, 2014

I made a few mistakes yesterday after writing my blog...

I went out to lunch after I said I was proud I didn't do it the day before. My lunch was amazing... but not good for me. I had a better meal for dinner but still not great. I did workout after wanting to not all afternoon. I did it though and I felt good about it.

I went on a date last night with FI and he said how amazing I am looking and he loves everything I am doing. He knows my dress fitting is coming up and agreed to go to the gym on Sunday with me even though he fell off the band wagon. He said he would do it for me.

Work has been crazy and wedding stuff is getting worse when I thought it would get better but I am managing to keep the stress down enough to where I don't feel like eating everything.

I am happy... Its been a long time since I can say that. I know I am not close to where I want to be but I am happier and feeling good.
