Weigh In Wednesday, Asthma, and Mean Moms
Wednesday, March 23, 2016
Howdy my loves! I hope everyone is having a great start to this week before Easter! I am excited for Easter. We are heading to my in-laws for a large celebration! My husband comes from a gigantic family so there are usually at least 30-40 people at holiday functions. Somehow everyone fits! I am bringing my Texas Caviar recipe which everyone loves including myself and thankfully it is super healthy!
So this morning was weigh in. I lost 0.9 this week which I am pretty happy about seeing as I had a really bad week when it came to food. I was actually only in my calorie range 3 out of 7 days so having a loss at all makes me happy. I guess all that working out comes in handy! I am hoping to really rock this week to make next week's weigh in my 3rd loss in a row! So far I'm down 7.8 since my re commitment to health on February 24th and I'm very happy about that progress!
As some of you know, I've been plagued with a lingering cough for about 2 months now. I finally decided to head back to the doctor seeing as I have been wheezing alot and the only thing that helps me is my rescue inhaler. I've had asthma since I was in 7th grade but in 2011 when I moved to Michigan, I lost my insurance. My employer at the time did not offer insurance and my asthma medication was too expensive to continue taking so I quit them. It went ok and I didn't really seem to need them..till now. I admit, the doctor scolded me a little bit saying that I should have been on them the whole time but he seemed to understand why I was off them. Whatever virus this was really attacked my lungs and triggered my asthma to resurface..so tonight I have to re-start a prednisone pack, got some more cough syrup, am put back on Singulair, and after the prednisone is done I have to start back on Advair which is a steroid inhaler. They also gave me a chest x ray to rule out pneumonia. I am so ready to start feeling better and I also think this will help me with my workouts! Right now I have to stop and take quite a few breaks due to lack of breath or coughing so I'm hoping once I"m better I can really bust some out!
This weekend is my son's home wrestling tournament. And I'm sorry but I am so sick of this team's parents! I enjoy the company of two moms..my neighbor and one of the coaches wives. Everyone else is so rude and cliquey that I just want to puke. The tournament is this weekend and I have still not been told when set up is, what time I have to be there to help, or even where they decided to place me to help. I had originally signed up for Raffle Table and then there was a bunch of drama and I was being forced to work in concessions..which really made me mad. I don't mind working in concessions but don't attack me just because I signed up for something else. I am so close to saying F it and not helping at all and just watching my son wrestle. This is my first year and now I understand why 1. Barely any parents come to the practices, meetings, or help with anything and 2. Why there are barely any new people each year...the mothers SUCK! I have never been made to feel so unwelcome in a group before...I hope soccer is better..my husband thinks it will be seeing as he plays for Adult League and knows so many people..but that shouldn't be how it is...I'm new..I should be kept in the loop. I don't need people to be my friend but common decency is something I require!! Ok rant over. I hope I'm not the only one who has to deal with MEAN MOMS!
Well I suppose I should end this and get some work done...my boss comes back from bereavement leave tomorrow and I'd like to not be behind and cause her any more stress!
Have an amazing day everyone!
