Neglected Blog April 29, 2012
I was thinking about my neglected blog today and thinking perhaps I should hop on and post a few updates. My weight is still all over the place. I’ve been down 8 pounds at the most and I’ve been hovering around 6 for the last two or three weeks. I think I need to get stricter with my diet for a bit. Not like Atkins strict but maybe “whole food” strict. I have my doctor appointment on May 8th. I’m going to get my yearly exam taken care of, talk about weight loss, and discuss maybe coming off of my birth control shot and going to the pill instead. I want to get her opinion on that. I’ve heard it can be extremely difficult to get pregnant for months and months after coming off the shot (other people get pregnant ON it…). I figured it might also be good to get my body back on a regular cycle. I haven’t had a regular period in over three years. I also know that the shot is associated with weight increase. I personally have not had any issue with this, but who knows, maybe going off of it will aid in my weight loss. I think if I do switch BC methods the whole baby thing will become more real to me. I’ve still got a long way to go before I’m down that 100 pounds. I’m extremely confident in myself that I can do it but it’s the doing it where I lose my steam.
I haven’t formally worked out at all since last Tuesday (almost a week!!). On Wednesday my sister and I signed up to deliver phone books and I figured that would be enough of an informal workout that I wouldn’t have to worry about the gym. It has proven to be a workout. Between carrying the books and the delivering them it’s a lot of weight movement. We should finish that up tomorrow though. We started with about 1300 phone books and we have 170 left. We’ll make about $250. We’re gonna use the money and go camping.
I think I’ll look at the “whole foods” board on the forums and see what that’s all about. That makes sense to me….meat, fruit, veggies, whole grains, fat free dairy, I can do that. It’ll help me hop back on the bandwagon.
Just FYI, I graduate from college this coming Friday. I will offically have my bachelor’s in social work. In a month or so I’ll be a certified social worker. I have my party this coming Saturday, plus the phone books, plus working out, plus I just acquired 18 rat babies and their mommas, PLUS I have to get my house cleaned for the party. Therefore, I may be neglectful again this week.
P.S. If anyone wants to adopt rat babies, I’m in Nebraska and I could try to get a rat train set up to get them to other locations 🙂
