Happy New Year everyone, welcome to 2011. For myself, 2010 brought many trials & tribulations which I thankfully survived.
2011 starts with my weight up about 10 lbs from what's posted on my tracker. I suppose I should change that but I dont want to lol.
So, I bought a pair of running shoes today on clearance & I have my treadmill. We got a Wii for Christmas & it's a blast. I have my own personal library of exercise videos. I have a gym membership.
What's my problem???
Well actually there are several......a new medication has a binge eating effect on me...something I am already very prone to. I have a doctors appt on January 6 & plan to switch meds.
My ulcerative colitis is in a major flare which makes me exhausted & starved all the time. Everything just "passes right through my body." I gain weight though because I feel hungry all the time. I am just starting back on medication for it now.
I am in Minnesota where it is VERY cold....like below zero here today. We have had winter storm after storm after storm. I miss getting outside to run, walk & play.
Last but not least, some SERIOUS insomnia which is draining me. I have tried aromatherapy, the same nightly routine every single night, a fan for white noise, melatonin, a sedative, lunesta, rozerem, benadryl. I still do aromatherapy & routine + fan. If anyone has any advice on this please help.
I need to find a different medication that doesn't cause me to binge.
I need to take my medication & get my colitis back into remission
Once I have energy I need to get my butt on the treadmill, to the gym, doing workout videos etc.
I need to pack my lunch daily & remove my candy dish from my office. Still debating a workout on lunch hour.....hmmmm.
Water.....I have been slacking on water consumption.
Strength training....slacking on that too.
As you can see I have my work cut out for me. BRING IT ON 2011....I AM GONNA BE the best me I can physically & mentally be!!!!!
