Well, as an update to my last blog, the doc said I'm okay. It's my birth control doing it. So the plan is to go off of it. Well, she recommended going back on the depo shot, but after a lot of thought, I'm stopping all the birth control. My reasoning behind that decision is because I'm messing with my hormones and that's not very natural. I also think that may be part of the reason I haven't lost any weight this year. Hell, I've gained about 10 pounds this year despite all my trying. Yes, I've failed a lot of attempts this year, but I think my birth control may have something to do with it. I mean, the point of birth control is to make your body think it's pregnant so it'll stop doing the monthly egg thing and all that jazz, so it stands to reason in my mind that it's part of my weight loss problems. Okay, moving on. This week has not been very good for me. I've been very bad, so to speak. I need to work harder on my goals. I've just kinda stopped caring a little bit because I'm tired of hitting my head against a brick wall. Don't worry, I'm not quitting my efforts. I've come too far to quit now. I think after I've stopped the birth control, I have about 2 weeks left of the stuff (yes, I'm still taking it. I'm not throwing away the money I spent on them. I'm finishing them off then not refilling them.) and start focusing more on my goals than the problems that I have outside of trying to lose the weight, I'll be back on track. So, I'm trying to hit the reset button and starting again.
Nutrition: Not one day did I stay in range and I didn't track any of it. So anything you see on my tracker this week is wrong.
Fitness: I only exercised 2 days this last week. Not good, I know. But better than nothing, I suppose. I'm going to try harder on this one at the very least.
Meditation: This is another zero. It's been a crazy week. I've worked over 10 hours twice last week (who else does that at a crappy desk job? Grrr...). I had kids over to visit so I wouldn't have been able to concentrate anyway. Just not a good week for meditating.
Get below 260: Well, I was afraid to get on the scale this morning because of what a bad week I had and was a little surprised. I did gain, but not as much as I had expected. I only gained 1.2 pounds this week, bringing me up to 265.8. Not good, but not too bad either. Especially with my choices this week. But that's what the reset button is all about, right? It's a new week. Time to brush off and try again.
Have a good week, everyone! www.youtube.com/watch?v=
