Oy Vey....

My body pretty much hates me today and I'm sure it's only going to get worse.  I haven't exercised in a month! yikes!  So yesterday I went back to the boxing club.  Yeh....I don't recommend anyone take a month off!  I didn't necessarily do it deliberately.  I was either out of town, sick, or had zero energy whatsoever.  My entire body felt like jello when I was done!  I'm surprised I didn't fall out on the floor.  All the trainers there knew I hadn't been in a while so when I would get some water, they would all ask me if I was ok  lol  I told them as long as I was still breathing, I was good.  I do need to figure out a way to get more calories in though and still keep my carbs down.  I put everything into MFP and I had just under 900 calories.  And technically, 300 of that was after the class from my protein shake.  Kind of hard to expect to have any energy when you eat 600 calories and have a workout class where you easily burn between 800-1000.  I'm supposed to be getting in 1000-1200 according to my doctor.  I just don't know what to eat and I'm never really hungry so that's a little problem too.  I am having blood work done next Wednesday to check everything out.  My thyroid was a little low before surgery so my doctor wanted me to come back and have it checked to see if I need to go on meds.  They put me on meds a couple years ago when my thyroid was just slightly low but I only took them for a little over a month or so.  I'm at a different doctor now so if she thinks I need to go back on them, I'll give them a whirl.  I hate taking medicine though.  I know I know...sometimes you don't have a choice.  I'm just thankful to be off of blood pressure medicine. :)  Anyway.  I'm just proud of myself for actually going again.  I'm going to go again tonight too.  Tomorrow night, however, I'm scheduling myself a much needed moderate/deep tissue massage lol  Then Thursday is 4th of July and as long as the weather is nice, we'll be spending the day by the pool I'm sure.  Although I think it's supposed to rain.  Friday, I have a counseling session and then I'm going to do the routine that my "trainer" gave me but I haven't started yet.

On another note.  Has anyone played that game HayDay?  It's an app on the iphone/ipad.  It's quite addicting and a huge time waster  lol  So if you get bored....check it out.  If you don't have time....I don't recommend even starting it.

So how's everyone doing?  My blog seems to get viewed a lot but only a couple people are nice enough to leave comments.  Maybe I should start asking you questions.  Or you can leave questions that you want me to answer.  I'm trying to build community here people :)

Oh....down 62...woohoo!  My goal is to lose about 7 more before my photoshoot on July 14.  It's a stretch but we'll see :)  I'm at a weight now that I haven't been in about 10 years.  Hence the reason I have to get my butt back in boxing and the gym so I can tone everything and look better than I did then :)

Peace out loves....

  1. Congratulations on your journey, Melissa! You should be so proud of yourself!

    I totally know what it's like to have life just get in the way of working out. It happens but good for you for getting back into it.

    And you really shouldn't have mentioned that game... My friend just told me about Candy Crush and I made the mistake of getting addicted to it! I'm just going to pretend I didn't hear that...
