I fell off the SparkWagon after being at Maintance for around 3 years.
I had been on BLC teams for many, many rounds before falling off the SparkWagon. So, I signed up and have been on the BLC challenge with the Golden Phoenix's for 12 weeks now. It's over on Wednesday, so here's my 12 week review ...
~ I drink at least 8 waters a day once again
~ I cut my pop to one once again per day
~ I do cardio at least 5 days per week once again
~ I do ST most days once again, changing up Upper, Lower, Core ST.
~ I've been eating freggies once again.
~ Been eating so much better once again.
~ My long struggling PF is doing pretty good now.
~ I tried a new MS drug during this round. It was horrible. Suicidal thoughts, etc. Had to stop. BAD STRESS.
~ Our daughter is getting married in December. They're in med school in St. Louis. All of it is on our shoulders. Especially mine.
~ (This might be TMI for some) I hadn't had a TOM for over 7 months. But still had migraine & sleep problems cycles. Then, BAM, while on vacation, I gained almost 10lbs overnight and got a TOM from Hell. My hormones went out out control. UGH!!!!!
~ I was able to start doing walk/jogging once again (stupid PF), then my stupid back went out like the old times from 2 car old accidents. I'm still at the chiro now. Still hurts pretty darn bad.
~ The last child got engaged last week. More stress. Won't go into it.
~~~~~~ The Review~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I had hoped to lose 10lbs. I was up about 20lbs. Guess what? Not a pound lost, even though I changed so much once again:-/
I'm really upset by this. As I'm sure most of you would be too.
Baby Sis gained a lot of weight. Quit smoking. Gained more. Got her act back together for one week and lost over 7 lbs. I'm so very happy & proud of her, but part of me did have a green eye of jealousy:(
I did go see my OB/GYN. She told me how messed up my hormones must be. I can't take any hormones due to my DVT & PE's. I just have to wait it all out.
But she did say one thing that I'm trying to hold on to... "Can you even imagine how much weight you might have gained if you weren't working out & eating right?"
It's not much, but I guess it's all I have for now.
