Saw on someone else blog and thought might be fun!
Think I will try this.. only posting to spark...
This actually could be done and changed up to post something either fitness related or healthy eating related...

So I am really feeling in a groove this week, and excited to really getting to accomplish some goals.
This is truly mind over matter. You have to be in right mindset... you have to want it. I always said I wanted it.... but NOW I want it. Tired of being uncomfortable, tired of being tired, tired of hurting...
10/30/13 - 209
11/6/13 - 208.4 -.6
11/13/13 - 206.2 -2.2
11/20/13 - 209 +2.8 yeah i know....
Goal to be under 200 before 2014
I did this before on my weight loss journey and it seemed to really help me identify any potential issues I may have had. I'm trying it again.

Let me just start off by saying I intend nothing said in this blog as a excuse. I fully recognize that my weight gain was a direct result of my actions or lack of actions.
Over Christmas holiday I hurt my knee. I was just doing laundry, twisted, and apparently thats all it took. Granted, it was a old injury from last year- hurt while working out (yes, I am putting that out there cause it makes me feel a little better)
I had not went to the doctor, and noticed that the swelling never went completely back down. There is some fluid around the knee. Doctor gave me some anti-inflamatory pills and again, better but still some swelling. I am hesitate to work out as it still bothers me.
While at the doctors office, the doctor(who I have never been to before) went on a rant about my weight. Look, does he not think I can see in the mirror? I mean, I know he probably thought he was doing me a favor and giving me a reality check, and yes at some level I suppose I needed it. But fact is, he assumed I was this lazy slob ( ok I just inserted the slob part) He assumed I was lazy, told me I needed to start working out. This man had no idea that I do work out, Typical week for me is 4-5 days a week at least a hour a day.
I know I can do more, but the assumption that I am lazy bothered me. I must work hard to get results- I get that - and yes do I slack some - YES! I do.
But his judgement just from my appearance bothered me. In a way, it MAY have actually been the best thing because it has fueled me. Unfortunately, I have to be careful with this darn knee of mine... but I am determined to get going in the right direction this time.
First time in a long time, this feels good.

Wow! It has been almost a year since my last blog entry.
Lots has happened. Including gaining about 20 lbs.
-We gave invitro a try. $12,000 for nothing. It was a hard thing, physically, emotionally, but at least we tried. The good that came out of it, is I am a renewed person, focusing on myself and getting healthy. Actually this has brought my husband and I closer, which is the exact opposite that I thought would happen.
-We are all moved into our new place. So much to do! I am not used to 5 acres to take care of. But its fun! Hubby is working on getting some mini donkeys, and I think chickens are to follow. He will have lots to take care of - cuz I already claimed that I am not.. lol
-My brother was diagnosed with esophagus cancer, he has had chemo, radiation and surgery- doing better but it's a slow process.
-My mother, who had colon cancer about 1 1/2 yrs ago, went in to get her gall bladder removed, and they found a abnormality. She has a cancerous tumor, they are just not sure where it is exactly and how bad it is. She will be going in for a ct scan on thursday.
I am not letting any of these become excuses. Granted, I did gain 20 lbs, but I am proud I will not let it get any further. I weighed about 3 weeks ago, done really well eating and exercising, and have not weighed since. Trying not to.

Whew! I am trying to catch my breath.
1. The house- still in early stages, not yet received a executed contract due to mistakes - some my realtor and some hud.
2. Doctor visit yesterday- 2 choices artificial insemination with fsh injections (which includes 3 doctor visits/wk- 20% success rate/ cycle and costs $2000/ cycle)
invitro - 40%-55% success rate $10,000/ try.
But also at the appointment, he did a ultrasound and found a abnormality. He thinks I could possibly have endometriosis. I have another appointment in 3 weeks to make sure its not a blood clot that enlarged, but if it isnt I will have to have surgery.
Which puts this right about the time we would close on our house.
3. My truck needs inspection and 2 days ago the check engine light came on.
I did indulge in some reese's peanut butter cups this morning, Yes, I am stressing, and yes I am using this as a excuse to eat even though I know better.
