I'm on a 38 day work out streak!! I like it!! And I've learned that it's okay to work out everyday and that it's okay to have some of those work outs be less intense. I don't have to push myself to exhaustion everyday! Just some days. :)
So with that positivity out of the way, I have some ranting to do.
I have some kind of eyelid thing. Like a rash or infection or something. I've been putting this steroid cream on it and it hasn't helped at all, so I went back to the doctor yesterday and he put me on prednisone. I've taken it before for poison ivy and allergies, but this round is going to be more intense. I'm not very excited. Especially about the side effects of wanting to eat more, weight gain, and face swelling.
Next week, I'm going to a big music teacher conference where I'll see a lot of my old college classmates, and I've been working really hard this last month to lose what I can before then so I can look better for these people I rarely see. But I have this stupid eye thing and I can't wear make up, and to top it off, I have to deal with puffy side effects from this stupid medicine. :(
I'm also kind of frustrated because I haven't lost anything in a while, and I've actually gained a little. I think that it might just be because of the strength training, because I do feel stronger, and I think my clothes feel a little looser. I know that muscle weighs more than fat. So if I have lost fat but gained muscle, I guess it will look the same on the scale. I should break out the measuring tape. But I still like to see the scale move down, not stay the same or go up. That just reminded me of the pic that Coach Nicole put on facebook the other day.
So I just need to keep being consistent, and eventually something will happen.
Okay, I think that's all that's frustrating me right now. Thanks for letting me vent. :)
