Well, here we are at a new month. So far, last month was a bit better than the previous. We're still dealing with the thyroid issue, but for the most part the Synthroid is dialed in. The majority of the blood work is showing that my hormone levels are in the normal range, not hypothyroid anymore. However, I'm still dealing with energy issues so the doc decided to check my Free T-3 levels and now I am on another med to try to get that up where it is supposed to be. Hopefully this will help the energy levels and at least get things steady.
The migraine issue is cleared up as well thanks to another medication change, but now we're dealing with a slightly different issue, so here comes another med change. I'm somewhat afraid to try it because I'm worried I'll wind up with the migraines again. We'll see how it works. This getting older thing really sucks!!
On the weight/workout front, so far so good. The weight has been staying relatively stable or dropping a bit, which is good. My problem right now is CARBS...gee, what a change
I can keep the weight (and therefore bodyfat) going in the direction I want it to go in, until someone sticks a cookie or piece of cake under my nose. Ugh...whatever happened to willpower. Sadly, I cave when it comes to one of my friends...and sadly, when I endulge her comment is "I'm proud of you!" Although she is slightly joking, she is becoming my "dealer" of sorts, and I need to put my foot down. I had had thoughts of trying for a photo shoot in December, but at this rate, I'll never get the extra fat off. So, no more sweets, or at least limit it to one a week. It will take control, but I need to do that!! The workouts are going ok, with the exception that I am now manning our fitness room after school three nights a week and therefore creating/leading workouts that are not necessarily what I would want to do on my own. Each workout is different, and I try to break up the focus so that we're doing a full body workout one day and then focusing on upper or lower or abs the other two nights, but we are limited in the equipment we have (and the condition it is in) and the selection of dumbbells and there are no barbells or weight plates (except the ones that are being used as doorstops) so it's really hard for me to get a HEAVY workout in. I'm seeing some loss in definition so I'm going to have to amp up my own workouts, which will either require heading to the my gym after I finish at school, or putting in alot more reps/sets after I finish with the workout I'm leading. I'm sort of getting tired of it, but I committed and the three folks that I have coming on a regular basis really enjoy the workouts and are truly getting something out of them. So, back to the drawing board on my own progress
Well, only 60 more days in 2012, so time to get MOVING!! Hang in there everyone, I know I will be, and let's finish strong!! Keep pushing and keep moving forward!!
