Rising up from the ashes... I even got a tattoo to remind me!
Tuesday, September 06, 2011
Once I said I wanted to lose 100 pounds.. it seemed like a done deal. Eventually, I got there, chipping away the pounds. It took three years but I did it. For me, I know I made that change that I am not ever, EVER, going back on. This is worth too much to me. In fact, I have struggled with accepting that my future husband (yet to be found) will have to accept and support my lifestyle before and after. I am all meshed into one.
Because I do not want to forget ever who I was three years ago and who I am today... I got a tattoo! Over the last year, I have been searching for the right design. I knew I wanted a phoenix to represent a rising of the ashes.
This is what I have so far. It still needs to be colored, in like two weeks!
Now for the rest of my life....
My test results came back. The strep culture was negative. TSH test was normal. Hemogram was normal. This is all good news.. but.. this means I still don't know. I have another doctor's appointment on Thursday. I am wondering if I should just forget it and act like I feel "normal".
I am still taking multivitamins. I have been getting better a little bit more everyday. In fact, I did 30 minutes on the arc trainer, 15 minutes rowing, and lifted lightly. I felt no weakness in my muscles but I did get nauseous. It's weird because if I eat I feel better for about 1-2 hours. Maybe I am not eating enough protein or overall calories..
Besides my health...
Today was a good first day of classes. I actually had fun in soccer which was a surprise, considering I felt inadequate and physically I felt nauseous. Also, my boss wants to give more hours beside someone is quitting so I will probably do that. I needed more hours anyhow!
Okay, that's all I have for now!
