Busy as can be... and weigh-in.

Alright, so I finally got my gym membership with the YMCA last Friday.  Have I gone yet... NO!  Why not you may wonder?  Well... no real reason other than I have been stuck at my house dealing with Girl Scout cookie stuff.  I am the cookie mom for my daughter's troop.  What does that mean... I hold all of the troops cookie inventory, I setup the booths (where you see the girls at Walgreen's harassing you) and somehow end up stuck at the house until the booths end.  This type of volunteering is good and bad.  It is good because I can stay home and work on my school work, I am taking two classes right now, but then its bad because I can't do much of anything else.

Good thing is my classes end the first week of February and that will open up my evenings again, especially the two nights a week I have to attend.  It is a hard balancing act trying to get school work completed, doing things for the kids and keeping my house clean (even with the kids doing chores), along with finding the time for me... which includes exercising.  But... getting the membership was the first step, so I'll take that as a win.

In other news... weighed in on Saturday.  Seems I weigh in either on Saturday or Friday.  I may stick with Saturdays.  Lol.  I have totally stopped eating Lean Cuisines and have to say that since I stopped my weight has started to drop again.  Coincidence? I dunno... but I also started my period a whole week earlier than I was supposed to.  This weight loss thing has totally thrown my cycles off.

I know I'm doing well with my calorie intake, in fact I've dropped it low again.  So its probably me tricking my body... from eating 1000-1100 calories.  I'll jump back up in the next week and then drop again.  Protein intake is good, working on introducing veggies and fruits more.  Water intake is definitely getting better but I've been drinking some Gatorade G2 lately, kind of over plain water and I got sick of the Crystal Light and Mio stuff.  Vitamins are going good... I ended up buying more of the gummy ones, too scared to go back to the bariatric ones right now.  And I'm still having to take my Prilosec, I've been having funny acid issues since week 4 post-op.  Just gurgling and acid coming up my throat, no actual burning.  It also makes me feel like I'm hungry when I know I'm not.

So thats about it for now...

Congrats on the weight loss. Interesting about lean cuisines. Maybe I'll give it a try. said...

Good job. Manda. How can you have girl scout cookies in your house. I don't really love them but I would probably eat them if they were in the house. Yikes.
