New Year, Old Challenge! I'm copying and pasting my last challenge until things become a habit for me since they aren't, yet. 

 

Goal 1: Eat 1200-1400 calories a day

Seems low? Yes. However, I don't/can't eat much these days. I'm currently on a weight loss medication and it makes me nauseous when I eat. I'm not even at a full dose yet, I think I'm at half. I was at 3/4 last week, but scaled back when I got physically sick on Sunday due to accidentally missing a dose. Yes, I want to lose weight, but the nausea and puking is not worth it. 

 

So! My goal is to stick to the simple food plan we had detailed out before going on the medication. Cereal for breakfast, high protein lunch, meal replacement for dinner.

 

Goal 2: Get off my ass and exercise 1x a week

I mean, hopefully I do it more than once a week. But at bare minimum I need to do it once. That would be once more than I am doing now. I just can't get anything to stick. 

 

That's it. Only 2 goals. I don't want to overwhelm myself. I have 2 events I'd like to look good for this year. This is help me feel confident in the pictures I will be in. I can't let Captain America down (that's one event, I'm meeting him in March!!!!!)

Sound like a good plan :) it's nice to see that you actively try not to overwhelm yourself.

Happy monday!
Happy Monday as well!!

Today did not start off like planned. I was going to workout in the AM having noted that by the PM I'm all tuckered out.

Well, the plan only works if you remember to reset your alarm for the earlier wake up call. *sigh*

This is not starting on a good foot. Got home Monday and dinner was finishing off a bag of tositos chips. Oops. 

 

I had meal prepped chicken for the week, but like always I didn't cook the broccoli at the same time. So I would throw some in the micro while finishing getting ready. Yesterday I didn't feel like doing that, and I just did not want the chicken. So I bought lunch. The deli special at work was a ceasar chicken club wrap, sans bacon because they had run out. It was on a spinach wrap. So not unhealthy. Then dinner rolled around. It being Tuesday and my "cheat day" since it's trivia night I wasn't too worried. I had planned on my one pepsi and maybe just some mozzarella sticks. By the time I got to trivia I knew the sticks wouldn't be enough (I think it's time to up my dosage since I'm no longer nauseous), so I ordered them and a chicken quesadilla. I ate half of each. And then ate two cupcakes that my friend/trivia host had made and brought in for everyone. 

 

Today's lunch is the other half of the mozzerella sticks and quesadilla. I'm hoping/planning on working out when I get home (I didn't get to bed until 1am, no way I was waking at 5:30), and having just the protein shake to help off set and rebalance.

Week 1 did not go as planned. Didnt track, and as of right now have not exercised.

 

I tried having yogurt with a little but if raisin bran mixed in for breakfast like the nutritionist wants. Cant do it. A) taste/texture not for me B )it's only been an hour and a half and I'm already hungry.

 

Last week I mostly had eggs for breakfast due to my stomach and I did notice my weight go down. I was thrilled. Ate cereal all this week and my weight is back up. Now, it could be because of my horrible dinners all week. Oe my weight went down because I was living on eggs, Sprite, and saltines. But I might be on to something. Now to buy more eggs. Thinking of making individual frittatas.

Okay, weight gain may have been period related. Just weighed myself and I'm back to the weight I was egg week. Which is weird because I normally gain 2-5 pounds of water weight the weekend before my period (when I weighed myself at the low weight). Guess now I'm retaining during the week.

Still going to see if I can batch cook some eggs for breakfast.

I need to hear more about this...
4c9f77a004583551d0a637e110be94c9.jpg
Ace Comic Con, which is apparently only a few years old and bounces around the USA. One of their rules is no city twice in a row. Well, they announced that their next city is Boston (20 minutes from me) and the first two people they announced as guests were Chris Evans and Tom Hiddleston. They announced Ewan McGregor right before Christmas.

Anyway, I was freaking out at work when I found out. And then somehow lucked out when buying tickets. Everything for Chris sold out in 3 minutes. I just went on, clicked the first thing I saw and paid for it, lol. My coworker watched and was like "so what did you get?" And I was like "I have absolutely no idea, I just know that I'm meeting Captain America!" (I got VIP: photo op, autograph, and guaranteed seat in his panel)

Speculation is once more guests are announced and if Chris does some dual Ops with them, some of his individual stuff will open back up as people upgrade and the inventory comes back.

Okay, I'm making some progress. Attached are screen shots from Monday and Today for tracking. I might still add to today, never did have the shake, but I'm not hungry, but I need to hit 1200.

Tuesday breakfast and lunch was the same. I had a coke with lunch and then two pepsi at dinner (haven't been that bad for awhile). Dinner was about 5 mozzarella sticks and a small ceaser salad. It was too much. I had 4 sticks before my salad came out and I was already full.

No exercise yet, but I'm getting close. I did get up at 5:30 this morning. Fed the cats, and then fell asleep on the couch. But I got up!

Okay, no real update. Monday being a holiday has thrown me off. I dont know what day it is. I haven't tracked yet this week.

I'm actually a little nervous about tonight/tomorrow. I forgot to take my medicine monday before bed. I woke up for some reason around 4:30am and remembered. Took it right then. So, didnt take it last night as directed. Took it about 45 minutes ago. Last time I missed a dose (and it was at this level of medication) I got physically sick. But it took awhile to happen. I felt bad all night, but didnt vomit until about an hour and a half after I woke up. At least that was a Sunday. With it being a work day tomorrow? If I dont get sick in the morning but feel like crap, I plan on stopping at the store to get saltines and powerade just in case.

I'm also very tempted to just stop taking this medicine. The doctor already thinks she is going to switch me in march. But wants to give this a little bit more time. I've only lost 3 pounds, and that was after I got sick last time. I should be down 10-15. This almost always being nauseous is getting old.

So, I did not get nauseous/vomit on Thursday. However, I did get sick. I dont know what I caught, but it kinda sucks. I had a lump in my throat all day Thursday after I woke up super congested. Like, I blew my nose probably 15 times before I went to work. Then it was fine. Friday my throat started to hurt. Saturday it was completely sore and hard to swallow. Same with Sunday and my ears felt like they had cotton balls shoved in them. Throat still super sore today, could talk but was strained. Also got hot and cold flashes. I left work earlier and actually started to sweat in my car even though I had the heat turned off. I've been curled up in bed since getting home. I did take a shower to try and steam out whatever I have.

So needless to say, goals got sidelined.

Not dead. Still not well. 

 

I ended up getting double pink eye last week. About half way through Wednesday it became full blown. Luckily I was the only one in the office for the remaining of the week. Came back in Thursday and disinfected everything. Pink eye is gone, but eyes still gunked up in the morning. Now I've got a cough and lose my breath super easily. Okay that second part may just be because I haven't done cardio in a few years. But usually, no cough in the morning, but by the end of the day have a cough and gets worse when I lie down. I woke up after being asleep for about an hour last night just coughing like I had been choked. I coughed for about 10 minutes. I'm sure my roommate and neighbors love me. But it's been super hard to do anything when I immediately lose my breath. 

 

And on top of all that, my nurse in the above picture had a health scare this week. He acted really strange in the litter box on Monday so I took him to the emergency vet. Turns out they found blood in his urine. They have me two sets of meds to help him pee and ease any pain, but needed to be given every 8 hours and to keep an eye on him for 24 hours. Panicked call to my mom and she said to bring him to her and she will watch him and give the meds. Test results came back yesterday with crystals in his urine. He needs to be on strictly his prescription food for 2 weeks and then have the test redone. According to my parents you'd never know that they was sick. He's tearing around the house, eating a ton of food, and demanding attention. 

 

My parents don't want to give my cat back!!! They love having him around too much. But he's bonded to his sister (who is still with me) and I don't know if they can be kept apart for two weeks. And I want my cat back! Lol.

I can't catch a break. When I get sick, my body decides to go above and beyond. I now have an abscess along my bra line. Will be going to urgent care tomorrow to get it drained. It hurts to wear a bra.

Urgent care wouldn't drain it, didn't think there was enough fluid. I told them I was in earlier than I would be (3 days vs a week) because I was at a level 8 in pain. Told them its never been this painful this early. I felt like they didnt take me seriously. The med student even asked if I was doing anything different "like injecting yourself with anything in that area". Exact quote. No you a$$hole, those marks you see are where I've had previous ones drained. They did give me antibiotics. But I know I'll be back to have it drained.

This just sucks because I can barely move without being in pain. I'm dreading the AM and needing to wear a bra for work tomorrow. Going braless not an option, the boob just sits on it anyway (one of the few times I wish I was an A cup, or even a C cause then I could use lift pasties and have them actually work).

I'm working on getting my under desk elliptical working. Need to figure out what type of battery it takes. It's also back at my parents, it was in my car when I had the accident. So it got packed up and went back with all the other stuff in my car. I'll be getting it either Wednesday or Saturday. I'll be there both days. If I cant work out at home, maybe I can pedal for 30 minutes at work. 10 minutes 3x a day? I may make it a goal for next challenge.
