New Years Resolutions – Week 14 Update

Week 14 UpdateTotally a better outlook for this week after the last few weeks of total-depressive attitude. Took my doh! moment and kept it in mind throughout the weekend. Figured I needed to make a major attitude adjustment, because the current one was totally not working for me. In life or work. Not anything major happening here, but here is my New Years Resolution’s – Week 14 Update.

Complaining Won't Burn Calories

I. Wish!

Went to the doc last Friday as a follow up to the appointment in mid-March. Need to figure out the reasoning behind my dizziness, fuzzy headedness, and why I feel weird while in movement. As I said before pretty much all my blood work came back fine, even the B12 and iron which my doc and I both thought were the issues. Also my glycemic level was perfectly fine which is what I have been blaming these feelings on. Weird, because my sugars have been so out of whack for over a month now – they will drop suddenly, many hours after I have eaten anything that could do damage, or raise super-high with no warning. The resulting feeling is exactly what I have been feeling. But, my doc is stumped. So she is referring me to 3 separate people – an ENT to see if maybe I have an inner ear issue; a cardiologist because of my hypo-tension and shallow breathing (sounds weird but is true); a phlebotomist to do a 3 hour sugar test. I just really, seriously hope that my insurance covers all of that or something won’t be happening – cause I got some seriously crappy insurance.

Reason Why I CanI took my realization from last week about my very huge overeating / portion control issue and made myself think about it. Like I literally would be sitting and reading and a thought entered my mind about eating and I made myself think about my portions and was I really hungry, did I need to eat, should I get something to drink. Luckily I had to spend the weekend doing serious packing and cleaning since I am now moving a week earlier than planned (not my choice) so I was able to make myself do busy work to try and ignore the urge to eat. It really helped and I was able to lose weight over the weekend instead of gain. A first in a long time. Let me say I was very proud of myself, and since I am actually moving this weekend and I will hopefully be able to spend some time unpacking this weekend and next – which will give me some time to put thoughts elsewhere besides eating.

DisciplineMy workouts have been going good. I switched some things up and have been doing more strength training. I have said this before, but I am really loving my muscles, and if I can’t make myself do cardio (except maybe to save my life) then muscle training it is. Since I won’t have a gym to access, I will need to look into some strength training videos (anyone have any suggestions?); I have one that I am getting a little tired of since I have had if for like 8 years now. Time for something new and varied….kind of like in my life, not just workout vids. The challenge is heating me up – really, I get a good sweat going now that I am in my second full week. Yowza, can I feel the hamstrings a-working. And my back is super sore (that’s a good thing), so I know I am doing good. Have you been doing the Challenge? How you feeling?

So now for the real update:
