Yeah, I know, I know, I haven't written a blog in a while now. It's because this week I have been SO tired at work, I've been working while mostly asleep and trying to keep my eyes open. Today I feel a bit better, but it's only 9 am :-P
So this is the frustration part of my blog:
I hopped on the scale today, and it says I gained 5 lbs....5?!?!? My dad tells me he cleaned off the feet of the scale, and that actually had thrown it off a couple of pounds. Whaaaaaaaa? So now I am nowhere close to being out of the 320s, and I'm really practically convinced it is muscle. See more on this later
Number 2, I measured myself yesterday, and I measure exactly the same as I did in October. And my hips measured even bigger. Whaaaaaaaa? I do not understand what is going on at ALL.
Here is the good part!
My pants are getting that baggy part back in the lower stomach area! I'm super excited! I know my body is shifting around, at least the lower part, because it seems to be stronger and trimmer. (Which I why I don't understand ANY of the above things that are happening.) I'm just going to assume that everything is shifting before another drop. Don't worry, I won't give up! :-D
I have been doing 2-a-day workouts for over 3 weeks now!!!! Today is the first day I will miss it because I'm going to be busy all night (more on that in a bit!) But I may do the 3 mile both tomorrow and Saturday. Or maybe I'll do a dance party, I miss doing those! :-P But I'll get those calories burned in somehow, because I don't want to use tonight as an excuse not to get them all in.
I got my first 1,000 minute trophy ever!!!! I remember seeing EMMAEKAY getting them on a regular basis and saying to her 'that is SO much! how do you do it?!' I can't believe I'm there myself now! :-D I really love it that I get so much in and I don't feel like it takes up a whole bunch of time every day. :-)
Ok, now on to other stuff!
Last weekend was a disaster food wise. But I am over it and have moved on, so it's all good again :-)
I'm super excited to get off of work tonight!!! If you have ever seen Mystery Science Theater 3000, you will be excited too! :-P AMC Theaters are doing a special thing tonight where Mike and two other guys from MST3K will be re-riffing Manos: The Hands of Fate!!! I'm totally going tonight!! My dad called me a nerd for it, but I am a nerd! Haha So right after work, I'm going with Barbara (my walking buddy) to the mall that the theater is in, and we will walk around for a bit before having dinner and then going to the movie. It won't be over until 9:30, so I'm spending the night at her place. I haven't spent the night anywhere in AGES, so I'm pretty excited :-) But that's why I won't get my WATP done tonight. We will walk around the mall though, so that will be something, even though I won't put it in my tracker. We'll call it 'bonus' minutes :-P
My dad is kinda doing ok...he was in the hospital before Christmas (in case you missed it) with an infection in his blood. He had to get a line in his arm to give himself antibiotics, and once the blood cleared, they took it out. Well he wasn't feeling ANY better and was still in a massive amount of pain. He went and saw two doctors, one who practically called him an addict and just wanted the pain meds for his addiction. When he saw his regular doc again, they sent him for an MRI and they finally realized that the infection is still there, but in his sternum (like the actual bone!). Needless to say, we are completely pissed at those other docs who tried to brush him off like he wasn't in pain. He's kind of upset that he had to get the line put back in, and he's going to be on the antibiotics again for another 6 weeks, but it's better than him having to go into surgery to get the infection scraped out (which is still possible if this doesn't work :/).
He doesn't know it, but this is part of the reason I've been going for so long. We still don't know why he got the infection in the first place, but I figure the healthier I am, the less chance I have of getting an infection of any kind. So every day I keep going, because I can't afford not to!
I've been doing pretty well this week overall, I've just been TIRED. Not sure if it has anything to do with my workouts, but I don't think it does. I think I just didn't sleep enough over the weekend. I will try to make it better this weekend!
I think that's about it for what is going on with me...I suppose I should get some work done haha! Have a good Thursday night everyone, I know I will!!!! :-D
