Well it's not the changing that has stalled. I'm still adhering to my nutrition goals with less and less cheats every week. But....the weight has stalled. Craptastic! This sucks! I was down to 141 lbs. and super excited last Friday. I was so close to breaking out the 140's! And then Sunday night JD said let's get some wings. And BOOM! Back to 143. And that is where I have stayed all week. Not one ounce of loss. PISS ME OFF!!! But here's the big thing. I have pinched a nerve in my back. So I have been living on Ad.vil and Ro.bax and I've only run 2x this week. Both were pathetic runs too.
But I'm going to keep trudging on. My body fat has gone down. But I'm bloated, retaining water (advil) and I'm a little backed up...uncomfortable... I've been having stomach pains all week as well. I feel like such a write off. I've got too many things working against me right now. But it's not going to defer me from continuing on. It's not about the scale, its about how I live and feel. And I have goals for this month that I think are going to help me achieve my good health and maybe just maybe start getting my scale moving.
#1. Get my thyroid panel run...
Very important. I haven't had it run since I had Lucy. So I am still on the dose I was at 170 lbs. I'm sure that needs to be adjusted. Plus I've adjusted how I've been taking it in the last 2 weeks and I think the change is actually hurting me not helping me. So I will go back to taking it only a 1/2 hour before eating rather than 4 hours.
#2. Get to my GI appointment.
Yes I have an appointment booked with a GI to discuss getting a colonoscopy done. Yes I am young for this. But we have a family history of bowel cancer. And bowel diseases. So this is preventative. Plus I have had nothing but poop problems for 4 years now, so I do think it is time to get some assistance and maybe some helpful ideas.
#3. Dream Board
I know this sounds wonky. But I'm doing it. Since I now have a treadmill in my basement, I now run staring at unfinished walls and ceilings. Instead I am going to make a couple of inspirational posters and a dream board of my goals that will be in my line of sight. I'm hoping this will make the first 16 minutes of every run much more enjoyable. I tend to struggle for the first 16-20 minutes of every run. But after that the runner's high kicks in and I love it!
So here's my recap....
Starting weight : 153 lbs. (January 2)
Current weight : 143 lbs. (March 9)
Not the greatest or fastest. But again I'm not dieting I'm changing my lifestyle. And 10 pounds is still 10 pounds. Still I will admit I'm disappointed. I'm working so dang hard. I think I should be seeing more loss. Oh well there is no other option but to continue on. That's all for today folks. Foodie Post coming soon!
