Long Time … Why No Post

Someone hasn’t blogged in awhile. We’re not going to mention the lack of vlogging either. But the reason?

I ended up sick, which meant things got hectic. That means I fell behind in everything.

The real truth is that my bi-polar gave me a bit of a ride the past ten or so days. That means that I was barely motivated to move out of the bed for work. I’m thankful that I know the signs, and it didn’t get as bad as it could. I’m also thankful I have friends and family who help me in ways they would never understand!

Healthy First Steps

Next Wednesday, I’m going to be put to the test.
I have a wellness screening at 10a. I can’t eat or drink (minus water or black coffee GAG) for 10-12 hours.
I’m gonna be a shaky mess BUT I’m gonna pack my shake, and chug it once it’s over. 😀
My last wellness screening (this time last year or so), my A1C levels were a little high (everything else was BEYOND amazing and A1C levels were fine for 2 separate draws, one before and one after, for life insurance policies. So, it’s more for peace of mind!

No strenuous exercise the day before or the day of, as well. Looks like a PiYo reorder might be in the works (especially since I work the day before this and that’s a guaranteed 20k in steps).

Being Honest With Myself

Diet and workouts haven’t been the greatest, but since I got my Shakeology in the mail, I’ve had one every. single. day.

  • My IBS hasn’t had a flair-up, and I’ve put it to the test by drinking milk (it was skim, so that does make a difference).
  • Even when I’m doing butt o’clock early shifts, with little to no sleep, I have time to have a shake. If I have more time, I make it more special (currently addicted to Snickerdoodle ), but I’m fine with just unsweetened vanilla and a scoop.
  • I get hungry at a decent time when it comes to lunch. With other ones (like Carnation Instant Breakfast, even the extra protein ones), I was hungry, shaking hungry, within 2 hours. Sometimes I’m not even hungry 4 hours later, when I’m usually going on lunch. I have to force myself to eat
  • I find myself looking FORWARD to the shake!

This week, the focus will be getting small changes in my diet. I’m a calorie tracker. For me, I have to. I can’t wrap my head around the container system, but I need to at least figure out meals and things. Thank GOD for Ashley’s accountability group starting tomorrow

The 14th, I’m back on the PiYo train. I’ve found myself MISSING the workouts, but 4-5 hours of sleep lately means I’m coming home and just passing out. I just can’t do it. Though yesterday, I logged, according to my FitBit, like 97 minutes of vigorous exercise, cleaning. My shoulders are KILLING me today. But I’m not logging that as a workout. I’m being honest with myself.

Which that is a big mindset change, as well. Being honest with myself. I’ve needed to do that for a long time.

So, honestly, that was a long ass post, and I’m going to shut up now. Back to the sweaty selfies tomorrow

Exhausted…

Today, no workout happened. Just couldn’t fall asleep. I had to work at 6am and, woo! It was a little stressful!
