So, I missed yesterday. I was busy, busy. I got in 20,200 steps by the time I took of my pedometer last night. The kids were crazy busy and the neighbor got robbed and I had his kid here for a while and it was just hectic. I remembered as I was rolling into bed that I hadn't blogged, so I promised myself I would blog first chance today.
So, I've done really well with my food journal. I've written everything, I think, for the last week. I've been killing it with exercise. I started my hormones and I love them. I know I can't rely on them for a long term solution, that they are a new treatment and don't have long term testing, so it's a year or two with several one month breaks in between.
So, here's the deal with the hormones... I have female low testosterone. So, I am trying a treatment where I use a specially formulated very low dose cream that I rub on my butt every night. The goal is to give my body the idea that it needs to be producing more and to take breaks so it has the opportunity to try to make it. but, seriously, having a little more testosterone is great. I feel better. I feel sexier, stronger. My "I'm a constant failure in all I do" thoughts are actually diminishing. It's like... Holy cow! Is this why men feel confident? I mean, it's crazy. It's pretty amazing.
We are having friends over for BBQ lunch today. Burgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob and rhubarb sauce with vanilla ice cream is the menu. I'm skipping chips, potato salad, and the other stuff, because its low key and we don't need them with burgers on our plates!
Happy 4th everyone.
One of my friends said this this morning, "I like to complain about America as much as the next liberal Mennonite. But, every culture has its flaws and I'm glad that at least I can complain without getting arrested. Happy birthday, USA".
