A little update

Thursday, November 29, 2012

So it turns out the sudden weight gain I have experienced was a combo of my migraine meds and HORMONES. Yep. Hormones. Ain't that just peachy? Lol. So the doc and I are gonna have a little get together to see what we can do about it. Good gravy I am way too young to be dealing with that problem.

In other news I'm working on getting enrolled into school. I finally know what I want to do with my life, so I'm going after a degree to help me get there.

Got a work out with JM today. Am I the only one who tends to yell back her when she's yelling at you? That woman is the Devil. LOL.


Weight gain and medicine?

Saturday, November 17, 2012

So...I started out using sparkpeople because I was really on the low end of a healthy weight. Got my migraines under control with medicine and finally got into a healthy weight range. But now I can't seem to stop the weight gain. I'm not sure if it's what I'm eating, if I'm not working out enough, or if my migraine medicine is really just working against me, but this sucks. I want to be at a healthy weight and feel good about myself. I've already done the low end of my weight range, and now I'm pushing into a part of the range that I'm not comfortable with. I'm not sure what to do here. I guess I'll start tracking food again and see what I find. I just hope I can find balance soon.

    I'm sorry. Maintaining is such a challenge. I would recommend charting food, but not getting too anxious about it since you don't want to swing back the other way. I hope the changes you are doing work for you. emoticon

    Hi sugarcube! Thanks for responding. I'm on Amitryptaline for my migraines....I looked it up and apparently weight gain is definitely a side effect. So I'm back to tracking my foods and I'm changing up my workout routine a little bit. I like being mostly migraine free so I'm gonna try harder to maintain my weight and stay on the meds. Time will tell I guess. emoticon

    Tracking your food is a HUGE help! If not, you may want to talk to your dr about the weight gain and the (i'm guessing) immetrex. emoticon

is turning out to be a pretty good day. I just got my car back and most of the damage from a parking lot accident (who runs into a parked car??) is fixed. Just waiting on my sideview mirror to get replaced, but the one that I have is usable for now. Really glad the kids and I weren't near my car when it got hit.

We also found out today that my husband is allowed to reenlist! Yay! That's a big deal with all of the people being let go these days.

I had a solid workout today too. All around this day is so much better than the past few days. Looking up and feeling great. emoticon


Won't let it get to me

Saturday, November 10, 2012

I'm having a bad pain day. Well, a bad pain week, really. I had a good run of keeping the joint pain under control. Almost 2 months. But the last week has been rough, likely due to the colder weather. I won't let it get me down though. I have to keep going. I have to keep stretching and strength training. If I don't, not only will I lose some of the strength I've gained, but I'll also get stuck in a pain cycle. I'm in pain so I don't move, I don't move so I get stiff, I'm stiff so I don't move, repeat. This will pass. I just have to listen to my body, know my limits, and keep taking care of myself. I look forward to another good run of being mostly pain free.
