SP, I appreciate you

Sunday, June 02, 2013

Today Andy and I went to the movie theater to watch Iron Man 3D. By the way, I didn't know Guy Pearce was in that movie. He's from one of my favorite movies-- Memento. Anyway, it was pretty good, I tend to enjoy almost all the Marvel movies. Best part however was when I went to the bathroom... I was looking at myself and wow! I really DO look so much thinner! I actually like the way I look. I'm looking forward to the day where I'm at my goal weight. It will be grand. Hopefully by this time next year (wait, don't I say this every year?)

I'm losing ridiculously slowly, but I am feeling more changes in body per pound than before. Maybe it's just me.

I finished week 1 of C25K AGAIN... Last week. Off to week 2. I feel much better about running than I did the last time around. I hope I get to the 8th week, and beyond!! After that I think my goal will be to start my weight training finally. I'm getting in that place where I'm finally comfortable running and working out even if other people see me. It's lovely.

Taking pictures of myself? I actually enjoy now. Not happy with what I see just yet, but it feels great to slowly feel more and more comfortable in my skin. However, even though my thyroid treatment is helping me with weight loss, and has helped some with fatigue, my fatigue is still prevalent. I'm seeing a specialist in August, because I have a feeling I have Hashimotos, not just hypothyroidism. I don't want to get to the point where my thyroid just dies on me. I'm tempted to ask about Cytomel, but I think I might do that if I don't feel optimal by January.

Anyway, everything has been good. I feel okay. Shoulder is good, no seizures, though I do get nightmares about having seizures on a consistent basis. Getting hit on feels weird, never really have had it happen as much as it has been happening lately. It feels a bit good to not feel like I'm so much in the background like I have been my entire life prior to this year.

Sorry for my friends who I have not responded to. Will try to make an effort. Life kind of has me bouncing around, so I hope that I can get more into SP. The important thing is that never in my life have I been so health conscious-- and I want it to be permanent. I want to eat vegan for the rest of my life, I want to run like there is no finish line, I want to make a bucket list which I will start tackling once I'm done with University. I want meet my online friends finally, I want to travel, I want so much. I want my body to feel loved, and I hope I'm doing okay for the life cards I've been dealt.

Hope you all are having a great weekend.

    Great goals and I know you can do it! emoticon

Strength training is important for runners too. Maybe you can incorporate some strength training for runners on your off days. Spark people has a group of exercises with that name. emoticon emoticon

You have a great attitude and outlook and are making so much progress!

Great work! emoticon

    Such a motivating blog!!! I remember when I started getting hit on when I lost weight, I didn't take it well. WTH now? and WTH always in workout clothes when I don't wanna be seen whatsoever? Congrats on heading into your 2nd week with C25k!
