PH Balance? Huh?

Sunday, June 09, 2013

My weight seems to have jumped up two pound outs of no where. I know.. two pounds is probably just fluctuation...but its been a few days and my weight doesn't really fluctuate much. I haven't changed anything except my stress level and MORE exercise. This is so frustrating..why can't I ever see any results? I eat better than ever and exercise on a regular basis (longer than ever) with nothing to show for it.

I heard a little something about how your body's PH can affect your weight. Apparently, stress can affect your PH. If that is what caused these two pounds to show up, then I really need to look in to this because it seems like nothing else changes my weight. I swear, I could eat cheeseburgers on a daily basis and I'd lose weight but if I eat super healthy, I gain it! I don't understand my body at all.

I looked at the chart and I do eat a lot of acidic foods (coffee, beer, cheese, nuts, and beef being the main culprits) but I also eat apples and oranges every day and any greens I can get my hands on. Of course, the best thing to eat is leafy greens but I never seem to have those since they go bad in like 2 days. I am just not up to grocery shopping every two days on top of school and work. But if that's what it takes...

I am going to try and make green juice every day. I love the stuff but like I said, I just never have groceries! I can't wait to be out of college and on a steady work schedule with a paycheck. My stress is through the roof right now! Something has to change..I have to get on a schedule or something and find some sanity in this new life style. Being laid off has been a huge challenge. The plan was for me to go to school full time and the fiance would support me but we just couldn't afford it so now I work on my no-school days. I don't know how moms do this..mine did. Super heroes!

On top of all that, my hip is really bothering me again. I don't know what to do, I am not sure if I should just work through it or rest. Rest didn't seem to help in the past. Plus, it is hard to rest it when your school doesn't have stairs! (ok..and I refuse to take the elevator at the parking garage..haha). I went to a few doctors when I had health insurance but none of them took me seriously. I guess they thought I wanted pain pills (which I would have refused if they were offered because that wont fix the problem permanently). Now I don't have the option to keep harassing the doctors.

Sorry for the whiny post. I had to get it out! Now that I complained, I will try and find a solution. Then do homework *sigh*.

    How much water are you drinking? Believe it or not, not drinking enough can cause water weight gain as your body thinks it needs to store all it can get. Drinking glasses a day will keep your body flushing itself out and reducing the water weight gain. Also, do you take your measurements? The 2 lb weight gain might be muscle. Remember, muscle & fat weigh the same, but muscle takes up less space. Are any of your clothes fitting better? Check it out and see if it is any better!

    It's great that you came here to vent--to relieve stress & gain support from friends. I have to wonder if sleeping too little might be an issue--you're a college student?? Get proper rest, eat the best your can, & that scale will eventually move. Try to be patient & stay strong. emoticon

    Stress can definitely impact our weights. Take care of you - and don't push too hard. Relaxation is key!
