So it has been a bit since I have blogged, life has been BUSY that is always a good thing :). With that being said lets get down to business. I have had some serious ups and downs these last few weeks.
My ups were great work outs and I mean GREAT can you say STAIR STAIRS STAIRS!!! And I have been busy making friends and stuff something I never thought I would be able to do, because I am a hermit for those who don't already know lol I always have been and probably always will be. They should have meetings for us like AA meetings but I guess no one would show right? HAHA.
So for everyone who doesn't know I have something called PCOS its where I have cysts that grow uncontrollably on my women parts. It has been a factor on my weight gain and it will be a factor on my weight loss I went to the Dr's about three weeks ago and they changed all my medication :( it throws me off. BUT I am not letting it stop me AT ALL nor am I blaming it for where I have gotten myself. I am where I am mainly because of bad food decisions and inactivity!
So I had a weigh in with Joe on the 20th and it had been 6 weeks since my last weigh in and for some reason no matter how good I am about working out everyday I tend not to be as good at weighing myself :( I realized I hadn't been doing it for that I blame ME. So I got on the scale all excited only find out that I had only lost 4 pounds I WAS SO MAD at myself that is! So it went from bad to worse when we did my measurements and I gained an inch in my waist and hips. I WAS ANGRY again at myself! So I went through that whole session feeling like I let everyone down. Never once did it dawn on me that I let myself down, because in all reality this is my journey! So I went home and I began to contemplate the situation. Now let me tell you the old me would have said "that's it I'm done! No more working out!" BUT we aren't talking about the old me, we are talking about the new stronger me, the one that took on this life change HEAD ON and nothing and I do mean NOTHING will stop me from getting to where I want to be! I know I have a LONG road but it will be traveled not only for me but for the many people cheering me on!! So I never thought about quitting I decided there and then I knew what would change it would me AGAIN and I completely revamped my diet literally over night! I gave up all bread, and pasta and for awhile meat. I thought for sure that I would have issues with this choice maybe even mood swings. But I thought if I could quit smoking cold turkey I could quit food cold turkey! And It was the best decision I have ever made. I started eating this way on the 23rd and I have dropped 10 1/2 POUNDS!!!!! And I feel amazing :) I will never go back to the food I was eating. I will bring meat back MAYBE haha but for now this is working for me and it will be my way of doing things :).
Don't ever let a bad situation or choice make up your whole life because if you quit when things get hard you wil never get ANYWHERE. If you don't like something CHANGE IT! That is my lesson for the week :) Life is full of lessons this I know well.
