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 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 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 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 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!

    Congrats on the loss! 3 out of 7 days in your calorie range is better than none! I have struggled with my eating a lot lately too so I know that any progress in the right direction means a lot!

    I'm glad you're getting your asthma treated and hope that your cough and symptoms ease up pretty quickly now that you're on some meds for it!

    Sorry about the parents! I totally understand where you're coming from in dealing with them. Other than being introverted, people's attitudes and actions are a big reason that I prefer to keep to myself in those types of situations lol. I know that isn't ideal though! Hope things improve.

    You're killing it! As for those "ladies", that's using a word loosely, isn't it lol...I'd do one of two things (but I'm evil). I'd either completely ignore their existence, or at the next meeting of the moms, I'll tell them to get over their high school BS, realize that they're technically ADULTS now, not ignorant little teens banding together over someone stealing someone else's boyfriend and grow the F up already. Either sign up for what they want when the list comes out or shut their Fing mouths and do what's assigned to them. But then, I seem to have been born without a filter and with an intolerance for those kinds of women lol.

    emoticon on your loss this week!

    I get what you mean about the "mean moms". I see it all the time with my kids sports. I also see that parents don't step up and help out. We have both extremes. It makes the sport that much more enjoyable if you have a great group of parents.

    Way to go on your weight loss lady! That is awesome. I'm happy you went to the doctor to get checked out. Lingering coughs are the worst, especially when you are trying to workout. I hope the medicine helps you get back to 100%.

    Catty women are the worst. Why people have to be so rude and mean will forever boggle my mind. I hope soccer goes much better for you guys.

    Congrats on the loss! Good plan to take it easy. I had bronchitis in December and it wasn't a severe case but it definitely knocked me out for a few weeks. Good luck this week!

    Congrats on the loss! you're totally rocking this! Good call on laying low on the workouts until your chest clear up. I always stop working out when sickness effects my breathing but if its sinus i feel ok..i hear thats the golden rule? who knows!

    I'm not a mom but that really sucks that these women are being so...difficult.Especially since you mentioned that not many parents offer to help or show up and you are ready & willing. I'd just keep killing them with kindness, at least make it amusing haha!

    Hoping the meds help you out. As for the snobby moms, ignore them (I know it's easier said than done. They don't matter anyway. Your son is who matters & as long as he's having a good time, that's what matters. emoticon

    I don't get snobby people. Why not just be friendly? I hope the meds help your lungs! Keep on truckin'!

    I hope that the inhaler/steroid treatments will help you get to feeling like yourself again and be able to do your workouts without feeling out of breath. Sorry about those Rude/Mean mom's and the drama on top of it. How uncomfortable that must be...hang in there because it's all about your son and for your son. Hope you have a wonderful and blessed Easter with all your family emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I inserted myself where I signed up and helped where help was needed. I even sponsored the team. I'm not well off with money at all either. Coaches & kids respected me. Those mean moms can go suck an egg! Keep being you!

    Oh I know about wrestling moms! My son has graduated and I never was allowed into the clique. I cooked for tournaments, ran conssessions, drove kids etc. I got the kids to love me by being good to them. Only one or 2 moms were nice and Sat with me.
