We've been sort of "fluey" lately. So we've been doing a lot of this lately:
Well it's been about 15 days since I had the angioplasty done on my jugular veins. How do I feel? Well so far I can now do a back flip off my bed...so I'm definitely improving.
ok for reals: I feel generally good. subtle changes. My joints are not nearly as stiff as they were before...I feel a little stronger. I've been working out at the gym and I'm pretty sure my left side feels stronger too. I feel more confident about working out. Usually when I try to do any form of strenuous exercise I'm extremely sore for weeks afterwards. I'm not sore or stiff. Amazing. That part is amazing. Could I actually be athletic again? Like play a game of pick-up basketball without killing me over?
I don't know...but I'm hopeful.
I still 100% believe diet has a lot to do with ultimate health- even with my veins partially blocked, diet still helped tremendously. I know that eliminating dairy, wheat (not sprouted), and sugar have helped me feel more energy and feel ALIVE. I know, sounds funky and weird. What? No milk, no wheat? yes, that is right.
Chay knows when I'm eating and treating my body well...because I'm more fun to be around and I giggle. At night. A lot. In bed. Over stupid things.
ok weigh in wednesday- remember that???? Trust me I didn't forget.
Well today I weighed in at 165. So that is about 23 lbs so far since Xander was born- which is so weird because I can't really tell I've lost any weight. I still look in the mirror with an "oh dear" every time. But according to Chay I've always been perfect...I just think it's the bigger than normal boobs he's a fan of- like any man. But for the record, I'm still super fun to hug. I'm the 'go-to' for that perfect snuggle. Squishy and delightful.
So what am I doing to lose weight? I eat lots and lots of coconut toasted marshmallows. All day. Have you ever had those things??? so good.
ok seriously...Well Joette got me on the "www.myfitnesspal.com" kick and I love it.
I normally can't stand counting calories- and the whole point thing from Weight Watchers drives me up the wall. - but what is different about My Fitness pal is that I'm connected to family and friends who are trying to get in shape as well- it's like facebook but for weight loss and exercising. It helps me stay motivated- and it requires me to log in every day. It seems to be working I suppose. So there's my plug for www.myfitnesspal.com.
Now where's my leg warmers?
