Encouraging Measurements Day! Huge Surprise!

Friday, February 01, 2013

Today, I did my monthly measurements and official weigh in. I was sorta looking forward to it because I FEEL so much ..leaner? My posture is better automatically so I assumed that was the cause. I only lost 2 pound this entire month so I wasn't expecting much.

Last month, I lost 6 pounds and 2 inches. I was super happy about it, those 2 inches were the most I have ever lost! And I have NEVER lost pounds before. But this month, I lost only 2 pounds..and SIX INCHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!! SIX! That is amazing! That goes to show you, the scale is worthless! I have been doing a lot of strength training, I didn't lose more than two pounds because I gained some muscle! So now, in total, I am down 8lb, 8 inches. I am stoked..I can't believe it!

I am not entirely happy that 1.5 of it was off my girls but that was expected lol. My arms havent budged at all..but I think they look better. I think I am packing on muscle and the fat is coming off, but slower that I am putting on muscle. They don't look so flabby anymore. Since I have cut back on booze, the measurement around my belly button is going down quick. Good motivation! I am looking forward to seeing the scale go under 150. That should happen next week..because I am stepping it up hard core with the cardio! I am right at 150 now.

My sad news of the day..I am pretty sure I have a concussion. I do not have health insurance and I can't pay out of pocket to go to the doctor either. I got hit right in the temple by an iron headboard last Friday. All week I have had headaches and nausea but the worst part is, I get sudden and intense fatigue! I have been sleeping 10 to 12 hours a night. I had a nurse friend check my pupils and she said they responded well but were dilated. I work 40 hours a week, I shouldn't have to worry about health insurance :(. Canada has it all figured out!

    You need to get your head checked out.
Have you googled head injuries?
It might give you ideas of how to take care of it...

On a happier note, emoticon

    Well done!

And feel better! Take it easy for a little bit with the concussion; it'll go away on its own.
