Picked up my Kettlebell again

Sunday, July 09, 2017

I decided after letting it sit for a few months, that I picked it up again and began swinging it. It was still pretty easy surprisingly and I'm glad for the movement. I've been a stagnant 255 for months now.

I can't really diet anymore and there isn't much I can do about nutrition. Seriously! My malabsorption is so bad that I just can't do a super healthy route. I just eat what I'm able to eat and that's it. That's my life now. I don't really eat fast food anymore. I still stink at cooking but its hard getting out when I've been home all day with my son. I want OUT of the stinking house. LOL. We may have to try one of those food delivery service programs where they send you the food and you cook it.

I wouldn't say this anywhere else but my marriage feels stagnant too. Since my husband took his management postition, he is less happy. He is tired a lot. He doesn't listen to me a lot anymore. Since I've been dealing with my sickness, I've been obsessing over it. That coupled with feeling imprisoned at home, we just don't have much to talk about lately.

I tried to save up for vacation. My sister who hasn't worked in months (and 30 years old) was supposed to come help me with Joey this summer so I could work. She gave me 2 weeks and went back to mom and dad's. Ugh!

I've decided after trying to scale an eBay and Amazon business for 3 years that I'm going to let them both go. They are way too time consuming for the small bits of time I get to work on them. I've made money but not a lot. I'm glad I did what I could. If anything I may use Amazon to submit my own stuff but that's not something I'm going to do right away. Right now I'm toying with network marketing. I'm currently doing some training now.

My son goes to Kindergarten in 3 weeks! Wow! His stomach has been giving him fits too. He throws up a lot. He's had a good bit of diarrhea since March. Off and on just about every other day. He says some areas of his stomach are tender. I've been to his gastro about three or four times. They said his xray looked like he was full of poop. However, when I tried a clean out this week, the color was getting lighter and it didn't look like he had done very much at all and I was worried about dehydrating him or something so for now I'm going to spend the week on a daily Miralax regimen and I will note his daily stool to see if he is moving anything besides diarrhea out of his system. I don't have a lot of confidence in his gastro. I will say Joey eats well and is still gaining weight.

With all this going on, I miss the gym. I just miss doing something for me. I hope that if I get back to a routine that some of the weight I'm holding on to might fall off again. If anything, it would be nice to lose some inches and fit into some smaller clothes.

That's all for now. Bye!

    I really wish that you could afford a functional dr for both you and Joey...doesn't sound like western medicine will help you much. I don't understand how you guys don't have some type of autoimmune diagnosis! It really sounds like the gut health is really impaired!

    I hope it gets figured out soon....what will you do about your marriage situation?

    I'm glad you at least can get some exercise in. I hope Joey has not inherited your G.I. problems. That would be horrible. When I'm sick I'm limited in what I can eat too. Some healthy foods just make things worse. I had constipation problems when I was young and then developed diarrhea when I was older. Fruit helped the constipation but certainly doesn't the diarrhea. Fiber is supposed to help either way but I bloat up from too much. Can't win. I'm so sorry about your husband's job. So many people feel the same way. They get a promotion and it turns out to be a negative experience. It's usually more money but always more work and responsibility. I hope you and your hubby can find a way to become close again.

    Sounds like you have a lot on your plate. You will see your way through it all. Network marketing is no easy task. You have to puy forth the effort to see results. Stick with it. Wish you all the best.
