Friday Morning Ramble!

Friday, January 27, 2012

Oh wow…I didn’t realize that was 18 minutes long – sorry.
Here is a summary in case you don’t want to watch all of it.
I got on the scale this morning – in know! I am trying not to be addicted to the scale, but I am down one pound from Wednesday. I can’t weigh myself everyday though because then I am going to get all stupid about it and say “urgh just one pound that is it” and then I will get all negative.
My homework for myself is to find recipes I can cook and not worry about calories. At the beginning of the year we made a vow not to eat out and since I have been counting calories we have been eating out mainly because I am afraid to cook. What I have been cooking for the past month has been greasy high calorie southern foods – which is my weakness. So I need to dive into the spark recipes and plan out my next week.
Also I asked how much hair you all lost after having your babies. I am losing tons and I don’t remember losing that much with Shelby ten years ago – but I was also 23.
I am also going to look into sparklive meetings – I will let you know what I find out. Not sure if I will go that route because I think it might cost money and I believe if I get back into vlogging it will help me with accountability.
I also spent a good ten minutes venting about work…I just needed to get it out.
Even though this vlog was way too long – it felt good to get things off my chest. If you make it through all 18 minutes thank you and if you make it through just this long summary – thank you!!!

    I have never had kids but I have experienced hair loss with my current weight loss and did my 1st weight loss too. I am using Nioxin treatment with 4 products and I am growing hair but it still seems like I am losing hair. Hope you can find a solution for the hair and the coworker. All the best!

    I didn't want to comment until I got through the whole thing and I kept getting interrupted midway eeveerytime I'd try! Finally got it! ha

    Have you had your thyroid levels checked?? That is the only thing I can think of. You could try to stimulate your scalp, manually, with massage and such. DON"T waste money on shampoos!! Nothing that short term will have any affect!

    Can I add ONE thing as a 'big sister'.....DO NOT PULL ON YOUR UNDEREYE SKIN!! haha I'm sorry, I couldn't help it, but you gotta be DELICATE with that skin!! No pulliing or rubbing! You'll thank me later! ;)

    Hi! I listened to the whole thing :)

    I don't have any advice as I have never had kids - but I would imagine that vitamins would help?? I have those Hair, Skin, and Nails vitamins that Ive been taking (talked about them no my "self-medicating" vlog.

    Sorry about the situation at work - that really is a bummer. Have you expressed your frustration with the situation to your boss?

    Summary I read while while waiting for your vlog to upload.
    Hair loss ~ estrogen has taken a beating. It's transitional (6m-1yr). Depending on your length and how severe the loss maybe a hair style change to feel fine until it levels out..I'll come meet you again later...
