I went to my DOC Thursday!
I stepped on the scale at 180.2..UGH That was NOT nice to see....
The reason being it was at 4PM...Plus it was in the middle of TOM..
Still I knew what my true weight was!
This morning I am still up by 2 pounds! Putting me at 177.
As long as I stay away from that 180 I am happy for now!
I am actually thinking of NOT weighing on Monday..WHY you may ask? WELL because I can do that..
But the real reason..I want to give my body a week to adjust from from TOM and get back to what I know my TRUE weight really is..This whole weight thing can be a real mind F***K and to avoid being depressed for a week I may just skip it!...I may weigh on Tuesday..Just not on Monday.But since MONDAY is my OFFICIAL weigh day by weighing on Tuesday or Wednesday I won't feel so pressured or stressed about the weight.
I am still happy with the way my month is going!..
I know that I need to get on my treadmill..I am dealing with some Knee issues and that is NOT an excuse. I wish it was! This is pain that happens when I am just sitting there. So I am thinking that I may need to go see a doc for this.
I wake up in agony!
I have been doing free weights with 3LB weights and working my upper body just not as much as I should. So I am going to work on increasing that! Same goes with my lower body. I have started using ankle weights.( Knee pain was before I started using weights)
I have not noticed any increase in fatigue with using weights which is a good thing. So I will continue with this.
I have planned to do it when I first get up. That has not worked because I always have to eat when I first get up. If I don't I am nauseated. Then I end up on the computer..Then it just gets away from me.
Another reason is going to sound stupid to some and some will understand.
I have explained my fatigue and what it takes to just take a shower. Well have you noticed how much hair I have?? When you work out you sweat!! I can't work out and NOT take a shower! So I would have to not only get on the treadmill I would have to then shower after. PLUS WASH MY HAIR..Not only shower every day..But wash my hair EVERY DAY!! When right now I wash my hair every 3 days.
So please...If anyone has any advice on this I am listening....because I could really use it!
I know this may sound stupid to some.I get that. But when you have fatigue from MS like I do and I already have issues with getting on the treadmill. Now I am suppose to shower after and wash my hair!!!
I have to say this is probably the main issue..But it has to do with FATIGUE..Not the shower..If that makes sense..The fatigue causes the shower issues! I use to LOVE my showers..I use to shower twice a day. I have tried buying great products so that I will enjoy my showers more. I recently bought a $12 Alba Lavender shower soap..LOVE IT!! So that has helped a bit! Cutting my hair...WONT HAPPEN..( :..Maybe one day!
I feel I am still on track to 10 pound in the month of April!
I just need to get on that Treadmill and use my weights EVERYDAY like I said I would!
