BAck on Track!

Thursday, July 12, 2012

We are home safe and sound! The house has been restocked with healthy food and I spent a good portion of my time last night cutting veges and making lunch for the husband for today. We are, as of today, back on track food wise. i did a 30 min cardio session on my elliptical this morning. I had a session with a personal trainer while on the cape (a free perk when I signed up at the gym) and learned quite a bit about what I need to do to lose my last 15lbs to really show the muscle I have worked so hard to build. So my plan is set, and sadly I willnot be following the LiveFit plan :(. I am grateful for the muscle building, but I am unable to move on to Phase 3 (Ill get into it more in another blog). Also, Im going to be doing some serious research about the low FODMAP diet, Paleo, and GF. The funny thing is that once I stopped taking all my vitamins and restarted my BCP to get my hormones back in line, I felt so much better. Now im worndering if the vitamins I was taking were making me feel worse, so a bit of research there is needed there also...I ll start slow: plan 2. Add vitamins 1 at a time and see if I have any reaction.

My goal, for right now is to lose the weight I gained (probably7-8lbs in 2 weeks) by the time we host Madelynnes party on the 21st. So Im focused and going to be strict about weighing and measuring my food, while still trying to maintain muscle mass.

On another note, it feels so good to be home! I have this intense urge to clean/purge the excess stuff because of the mass amount pf clutter that exists in my inlaws house (not my mess, although I would gladly clean it). So today I will spend the day cleaning and unpacking. Mollie (my oldest) has a drs appt to remove her warts on her knee in the afternoon, and then we will have girls night out tonight, so no pressure for me to cook.

I just want to say, I have missed being able to get online daily! I really have enjoyed blogging and reading other peoples blogs for ideas and inspiration. I have missed the comments you all so kindly leave after I vent. I am back, tracking my food, blogging and being present! Thanks for having me :)

    My daughters birthday was a grand event. While the party was very small, we basically had a whole weekend of exciting new things to do when we were on the Cape. I must admit she probably felt very spoiled. Because she is now potty trained it is a tradition (albeit one I started with my oldest) to get dressed up and all the Gabelman girls (those who can come) go out for a real grown up Tea party at this quaint little tea shop in town. This year ALL the Gabelman girl went, it was a real treat, then we had the party with a few gifts, and after afabulous meal (every meal was full of her favorites) we walked to Four Seas (a famous ice cream shop). Then the next day (her actual birthday) we took the girls to the trampoline park (trampolines built in the ground), went candle pin bowling, had a special lunch at a much i cant even remember!

    Finally!! Glad to have you back :)

    What did your trainer suggest? Just curious. Glad you're back on track with the eating, and good luck with your meds experiment. I had a similar one 2 years ago (and my then-doc said I was crazy for dropping them, like I did it all at once, lol... btw, when I eliminated the one he said I should not stop taking, my issue disappeared, also, even though it was not a recorded side effect).

    How was your daughter's birthday?
