I haven't been feeling taking to the blog writing as of lately. But I'm forcing myself to do it now, I think it'll feel good.
I've kind of been in a bad mood for the past few weeks. I think that's because I'm out of school on a short break (I finished my last Summer course- Macroeconomics- with a B though yay!) and am not doing enough or have enough to do with my time. I really need work or school to feel like I'm doing stuff.
It's also because my menstrual cycle on the pill I'm on or whatever only seems to keep me good for about two weeks of the month or so now...Like I get my period a few days early, and about a week leading up to it I'm a bit off, and then my period lasts about a week. Plus it makes my anemia worse...today I am so tired...bleh.
Still struggling with motivation. I thought I had a really bad week last week, I kinda went over my food plan and didn't work out enough. Luckily I still ended up losing 2 lbs even though it didn't show up until the day after my official weigh in...haha.
The awesome thing though, is that I'm only 2 lbs away from my original goal of losing 50 lbs! And though I plan to keep going, that is an awesome accomplishment. I think another 50 lbs after that would be nice, but I don't know, I might be too tiny? I'll have to see. I want to be at least 140 lbs, but 125 was sort of something I had had in mind for awhile. Who knows what I'll end up liking.
I was really hoping I could get off my blood pressure medication when I lose 50 lbs like my doctor said I probably could, but I'm honestly questioning it. I live at home and am 28 years old, and it's not good for my blood pressure. My parents stress me out so much sometimes that I can literally feel my blood pressure rising basically in some interactions with them. Ugh. So I don't know if going off it is exactly a good idea...? at least yet unless my numbers are actually really low.
Finally, I've gotten really good at riding my bike. I rode it to my friend's house for her pool party on the other side of town and it took me less than a half hour. That was awesome, I used to really struggle with riding it long distances. And it was so much more fun than riding my bike around in circles in my neighborhood! I also managed to do a plank last night longer than usual...haha but I'm still a bit of a weakling with upper body strength. hehe.
That's all I have to share for today in my blog! Hope the end of Summer is going good for you all!
