Mandy, Good to hear you guys are getting along again. Golfing is a great thing to do together! It's something my husband and I talked about doing- but he's too busy right now. We may do it in the future. Way to get your workout in!
Bobbi, I messaged you privately. Hugs.
Last night I. Got. Drunk. Although I had a great day at work (I finally got a pat on the back after 9 months of working there), I was just fed up with dieting and exercising. Mike spoke to a old teacher friend of his who has always talked about the danger of sugar. When Mike told him I was following the diet religiously, the old teacher friend said "A lot of people say they do, but then they sneak a Big Mac everyday." It pisses me off (sorry to offend) that people always jump to that conclusion. That's what gets me so sad about the whole thing.
So Mike and I went out to dinner. I had 3 glasses of wine. Considering I haven't drank much at all since I started low-carb at the beginning of February- this really, really got me drunk. But hey, it was fun.
I didn't go crazy at dinner. We got sushi rolls without rice. I tested my urine this morning, and I'm still in full-blown ketosis. That means I didn't eat too many carbs.
I forgot if I posted this yesterday, but my doctor got some blood results back. She up-ed my vitamin D to 5,000 iu/day, and doubled my thyroid medication to 30 mg 2 times a day. I've been eating the way she instructed, and I haven't lost an ounce. In fact, I've gained nearly a pound.
On day 21 of my cycle, she's testing my blood again to see if my hormone levels are unbalanced. She's still consulting with some other doctors about what are next step will be.
I'm keeping up with exercising intensely. I do a workout video (Insanity, P90X, or TapOut) or I do a C25K jog 2 times per day.
I'm about to head downtown to drop off a courtesy copy of a motion to dismiss I drafted to a judge. Then I'm going to observe a couple of status calls. In the afternoon, I'll drive back to the office and work on some proposed changes to a subcontract.
I hope to get some direction today about how to supplement my income as an independent contractor. I'm waiting on a few emails.
Anyway, happy Tuesday!!!!

Hi all. Sorry I've been MIA. Yesterday, I found out I failed the bar again. It's really hard to be positive and optimistic, and I gave myself yesterday and today to cry, be emotional, and feel sorry for myself. I'm already contemplating which company I will use this time (NOT BARBRI, as it didn't help me these last two times) and how I can change my study habits.
I'm sitting at work just staring. I can't believe I'm in this position again. And now I'm going to have to go to my new job on Monday and tell them that I didn't pass.
Good morning team! Got up early and did a ST dvd. It was nice. It was so beautiful yesterday afternoon! DH got out of his funk and invited me to go to the driving range with him. We are very much beginners at golf, but look forward to learning and getting better.
Lisa - Thanks for the offer, but everything is fine. We generally get along, but fuss from time to time like any couple. Excited for you that work is going well, just don't spread yourself too thin.
~Mandy~ I'll make it to the moon, if I have to crawl.
