For breakfast this morning, I ate a scrambled egg with turkey sausage crumbles, a slice of light wheat toast topped with pumpkin spice cream cheese, a banana and skim milk.
While working, I sipped on coffee with pumpkin spice creamer.
On my break, I ate light vanilla yogurt with raspberries, blueberries, and chia seeds.
For lunch, I ate a salad topped with tomatoes, crumbled blue cheese, sliced almonds, 1 egg white, sliced avocado, and leftover turkey with BBQ sauce. This was especially delicious today!
And finished it all up with an apple and peanut butter.
And then I got started on work for job #2. I got quite a bit of work done and then had to leave for a doctor’s appointment.
The appointment was about my blood pressure, but I also mentioned my weight loss issues after being back on track for about a month and hardly any success…this after not having much success for over a year now, too. I did promise her not to cry this time and apologized for my episode last time. lol.
I asked for blood work and she ordered it. She may have been annoyed with me, but maybe I was imagining it. I am so sensitive that every little thing makes me feel terrible. I think I we should all take charge of our health and if we suspect something, we should voice our concerns, no? I’m becoming one of those patients that is very open about what’s going on…but you know what? That helped get my blood pressure under control too.
Oh well. I just need to know for sure. She’s going to be out of the office next week, so it’ll be a couple of weeks before I get the results.
I just feel like I need some answers. It doesn’t make sense that I cannot lose weight. It’s probably all fine, but I will have the peace of mind when I know for sure. And I want to make sure I’m at my healthiest. I was reading online that thyroid issues left untreated can cause birth defects. Well, if anything, at least I’ll prevent that if there’s some slim chance there’s actually a problem.
This was just kind of a spur of the moment request, but when I came home I did a little research on hypothyroidism and found that I had about 11 of the symptoms. I know how dangerous Dr. Google is, so I won’t get too concerned yet.
After that little escapade, I got back to work for Job #2 to finish the piece I was working on.
For supper, I made sandwich thin pizzas that I topped with veggies. I also had steamed zucchini.
I finished it up with a No Pudge! brownie that was so delicious that I forgot to take a picture of it.
Those always satisfy my sweets craving.
I didn’t think I was going to get in a workout today, but I forced myself to at least get on the bike and get a 30 minute cardio workout in, which will cover the optional cardio workout for the week. I biked 7.2 miles and burned 180 calories.
After my workout, I headed out to cover an event in town tonight. The place was packed so I stood on my tippy toes in the standing room only section and took my photos—good to go!
And now I’m happy that the day is finally over! I have a busy week this week with something going on every single night. But that’s ok…VACA NEXT WEEK!!
I’m just feeling a little down and out tonight. But then again, I got TOM right on target for my 15 day cycle today. I finally tracked it down. 30 day cycle followed by a 15 day, another 15 day, and then another 30 and so on… Crimeney!! I’ll just go find comfort in my hubby’s warm arms. I’m lucky to have him.
