October Goals & changing meds?
Sunday, September 30, 2012
Yay! tomorrow is a progress check day! that means I have to record my inches and see if i made any progress. I'm not too confident about it but i will be super happy if i do have any progress.
Ok so reasons why I wont have much if any progress are: 1. i hurt my wrist and had to take it easy for almost 2 weeks and i'm having a hard time getting back into a workout routine. 2 my eating has had great days and awful days... I know that there is still a lot of improvement needed. This month made my realize that I have a hard time eating enough fruits and especially struggle with both veggies and getting sufficient protein. The little bit of tracking I did helped with that, but I wasn't able to keep up my food tracking for more than a few days at a time.3 I tired on a size 10 pants the other day and they didn't' give me a muffin top but they weren't loose and comfy like my 12's are. anyways, things could be worse.
I am going in for my annual check up and I may ask my doc if she can recommend a nutritionist or dietitian that i could see or talk to. but my doc knows a lot about women and struggling to lose weight so she may be able to help me out. I'm also looking to possibly change the birth control that i am on. I am convinced my hormones are out of wack again, i can just feel it. sadly I'm incredibly sensitive to any medication that effects hormones. Like when i was on the Depo birth control shot I gained 65 pounds. Now i'm not blaming my birth control for my weight, but I am saying that it is easiest to lose weight when your endocrine system is at acceptable levels because it severely affects your metabolism. Just ask Jillian Michaels, she wrote a whole book about it. Anyways, do any of you have a low hormone form of birth control that works for you? I'm not looking to have children for another 5-6 years so I was considering an IUD but my sister said i'm not a likely candidate, most women who have it already have a child.
My October goals are the following: absolutely no McDonald's Frappes (none whatsoever!!!), 1000 fitness min this month, no soda other than Fridays,try at least 2 new crossfit workouts and check measurements on Oct 1st and 15th to measure progress.
I hope you all have a great month and reach all your october goals! thanks for reading!
