MUB-Monthly Update Blog….goals etc.

This has been a crazy month. I started a heart medicine that causes a slow metabolism. The doctor asked me to consider Ablation where they use a catheter to burn away the part of my heart that is malfunctioning. I am not really considering that yet. If I keep gaining weight when working hard, I might change my mind.

I did quit my terrible job. Next week is my last week. They have me working 9 hour days on Monday and Tuesday. That is hard to do with 4 year olds and hardly any bathroom breaks during the day. I might have to try to leave early and just tell them I can’t work that long. They are taking advantage of my nice nature.

Some goals I had trouble with this month. Here are the goals and how I did.

Exercise 500 calories + 6 days a week (don’t just exercise for minutes but make it quality exercise)
---This is hard because my heart rate is lower due to my medicine. So burning 500 calories takes me much longer.

Take one active rest day per week

Eat 6-7 Freggies a day

One day per week allow myself to go over calories by 100 or so. Just to reset my metabolism
---Did this 2 days some weeks. (not good)

More healthy snacks after dinner.
--- I eat healthy ones but sometimes eat too much!!

Find something motivational at least once a week
---I am getting better at this. This week I am watching the biggest loser for the first time.

    Don't let them abuse you and take advantage of your nice nature. It's not right. Good for you leaving a job that you can't take anymore. That takes guts. Way to go.

    You are very lucky to be able to leave a position that is not treating you right. That is a huge blessing and I'm very happy for you. It's a shame to treat anyone this way, but especially those who take care of children! I think you're doing a great job with your goals, and that you will reach even more of them once the job stress is totally alleviated.

    I hope the medication works out for you.
YAY for quitting that job!! They are taking advantage of you.
Just do the exercise you can and don't worry so much about the calories burned.
You're doing great!!
