Almost talked myself out of Yoga this am...
Wednesday, March 27, 2013
because I was going to be late. I hit the snooze a few times and almost just stayed in bed another hour. But, I reminded myself, dh offered to take the kids to school AND the Yoga instructor really doesn't mind if we're late.
I got up, got dressed and packed my lunch in the shortest amount of time possible and headed out to sneak in at the back of the room for yoga. I scanned my Y card and walked back to the group exercise room only to find that the lights were off! I opened the door, thinking that I just knew we had Yoga on Wednesday mornings. It was then that I realized that it was 5:35 and yoga doesn't start until 6:00!! Got in a nice walk before class!
I have done very well this week. Worked out at the y the last 4 days, heading in for cycle class and abs/arms in the morning at 5:30, then meeting with my TNT group at 7:00 to weigh in. Haven't stepped on a scale all week, so we'll see!
I took myself off my meds almost 2 weeks ago instead of changing to another one. We were awaiting the insurance approval and I decided to try without anything. I was concerned about taking something else and, after a little research into this one, was worried about side effects/ withdraw symptoms. I do feel a bit more irritable without it, but I am not so tired all the time or constantly eating. Guess I can either be a skinny witch or heavy but happy (or happier, anyway). I'll have to see if I can find a way to balance things out without meds! Hopefully, once grad school is over and things are more settled with my job, I will be able to straighten it all out. At last appt, we were concerned about thyroid, but some of those symptoms have started clearing up from being off the medicine. Wondering about/ researching holisitic, natural ways of treating depression without prescription meds.
Ready for summer sun, trips to the beach and Cancun!
