Better get healthy first.

I’ve been tracking my food and my exercise for two weeks.  It helps watch what my migraine triggers are and keeps me away from the donuts.

Who am I kidding.

I’d eat all the donuts if I could.

I miss donuts.

But really…I tracked and exercised and tracked and exercised and it got me nowhere. I am exactly where I was two weeks ago.

This was a sad morning when I got on the scale.

Okay, it wasn’t really sad because I am pretty comfortable at my weight..I just wanted to see if I could have a little control, right?  Could I actually make a difference and tone up that last little bit.

So then I went to Boulder and the gluten monster sucked all my joy.

Spending the week throwing up,  wouldn’t you think I’d be a freakin’ size 2 by now?

Your body goes into starvation mode so it clings to everything and won’t give it up.

I told Sean I was so tired of being sick I wasn’t going to eat anymore. It just wasn’t worth it.

I’ll be  the National Enquirer headline:

Woman stops eating~ GAINS TEN POUNDS!

So I was a little discouraged but it’s my only guess. I’m going to keep working on small meals that don’t upset my stomach and see if that helps me get back on track with the gluten issue.

Also, I may never eat out again.



I’m going to try and head to the gym after work.  Alex is sick with either the stomach flu or food poisoning.

I’ve been feeding him so I guess I secretly hope it’s stomach flu so I didn’t make him this sick.

But I also don’t want anyone else to have the stomach flu.

I admit I totally don’t know which I’d prefer.  I get it. That’s a little wrong. Still thinkin’ it though.

He’s been growing his hair out since he got out of the Marines on terminal leave in June.  So…8 months?  Wow. I didn’t realize it had been that long.  It’s long and dark and thick and gorgeous and even though I LOVE short hair, it’s really pretty hair.

Shoot. I was trying to find a picture but he’s very sneaky and the only pictures he’s in, he’s wearing his hat. He is trying to make it long enough for a  pony tail and it’s SOCLOSE. 

Until yesterday. When he cut it all off.

I didn’t even recognize him. And it looks like he lost ten pounds. So weird.

But he looks amazing with short hair (he’s very pretty. I have really really pretty kids) so I’ll take it.


Run on…

  1. Sorry to hear you’re not where you had wanted to be… My good friend tracks a lot and she often finds that after a healthy week it doesn’t really show on the scale, it’s more like a week and a half when she notices a difference. I don’t know if that helps at all and everyone is different too. Hope you’re feeling better soon!

    1. I know, right? But I think the Valentine’s weekend threw me off so even though I’ve been tracking and working on it for several weeks, that’s how long my body has been whack. So I do have to give it more time. And I really do just want to be stronger. So…baby steps.

    1. He just decided to cut it off! Crazy! But he said he didn’t want to rush the decision so he made the appt on Friday and spent the weekend thinking about it. Seemed to be right because come Monday…off it came.

  2. Ugh. Our bodies do strange things with weight. Being healthy is still good for you, even if it doesn’t show on the scale (something I always need to remind myself!) Hope you feel better soon <3

    1. I’m sure it’s just the gluten joy. I’m still in depressed mode. LOL. I’ll step it up probably tomorrow and start again. Just bummin’ because I felt really strong.
