Gosh I have not written a blog here in YEARS.
Well life got busy. I did find resolutions to the issues we had going on in our personal life. Not the ideal resolution, but out of the ways the road forked--I feel it was the best. I also found out my hormones were ALL OUT OF WHACK. I mean except for cortisol and thyroid, I had low everything! I found a physician who believes in bioidentical hormones, have been on them a little over 2 months and OMG MY ENERGY IS SOARING!! Albeit I had a set back this week as far as workouts (flu virus--and stomach at that blech), but otherwise I have been working out consistently since 2008 AND VERY CONSISTENTLY with cardio, strength and flexiblity since the HRT started. Yeah me!
I also learned I have to watch refined carbohydrates. PERIOD. I can get away with a few things, i.e., tortilla chips, but other things like candy or pasta---no. I will be dragging for a few days. It sucks in some ways because I love pesto over pasta, but there are worse things in life than not eating a particular food...and if I really crave it, I'm going to eat it.
I'm probably still at the same weight loss standstill as before (last time I checked which was yesterday 176 pounds) but from an all time high of 189 NOT PREGNANT I will take it.
I hope to find my motivation again, my energy is back so I suppose that shouldn't be far behind. I've also discovered I love love love kettlebells and Tracy Anderson, Bar Method, and Fluidity workouts so I've been alternating them. My doctor told me push, but do it gently as when I go balls to the wall with kettlebells more than 2x a week...I pay big time.
