Ready for the next go-around?

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

So I stopped tracking my food & stopped exercise for the last few months. Luckily I started some good habits that have stuck so I've still been eating fairly well. Though I know I can do better. Also, the job I started is very physical so I think that makes up for some of the exercise I've been missing. My biceps are looking pretty good! Now I have to target the flab under my arms. :P Anyway, I have maintained the loss that I made previously but now I'd like to get back on track and lose some more.

Especially motivating was this past Saturday. I saw a lovely lady that I haven't seen since Thanksgiving & as soon as she saw me she exclaimed, "Have you lost weight?!" It was the best feeling ever!

Unfortunately the same day I brought some cupcakes to a party & was insulted by a couple strangers over them. One guy said my cupcakes were nothing compared to his pumpkin crescents. Another lady asked me if my cupcakes were chocolate. I told her they were red velvet. She says, "Oh, excuse me. Red velvet." in a sarcastic tone like I was trying to be uppity by correcting her. Well she asked & red velvet is not the same as chocolate; I was not trying to be snobby. So pttttht. Anyway it kind of stung considering my dream is to start a bakery.

So I finally have my doctors appointment today. I already had my cholesterol checked a couple days ago so hopefully I'll get my results today. But I'm going to ask them to check my thyroid & see if they think I should get my iron, Vit. D & Vit. B levels checked. I'm just tired of being tired & I think it would help me get back on track if I wasn't so worn out.

    Everyone has opinions and I'd probably stick my nose up at red velvet too, but don't take it the hard way, I just don't like that flavor, the red dye tastes funny to me. The guy making the pumpkin crescents was probably proud of them and would have been that way to everyone.

    Good luck figuring out what's wrong with you, hopefully it's something easily remedied. I'm glad you're going to the dr to figure it out!
