Hello my faithful readers.  It’s been a while.  I’ve decided to do this blog once a month.  I felt like every 2 weeks was too much for me.  It put pressure on me if I had a bad week and the scaled showed this.  And then I had to come here and tell you all about it.  In the beginning, I thought this blog would motivate me a little bit more to stay on plan…because how embarrassing to have to share your failures with a bunch of people.  But some weeks, it really doesn’t do much to keep me motivated.  I really don’t know what will.

I’m trying something different…I joined Orange Theory Fitness on top of doing personal training sessions.  And let me tell you…I absolutely love it!  I love the group setting…and I’m already making friends with some of the regulars I see.  I also really the coached sessions.  So I’m hoping with this new routine I’ve added, that I’ll start to see progress with my fitness level. 

I haven’t been all that great with food choices over the past 2 weeks, I will admit.  I haven’t gained, but I’m not losing…I’m not necessarily pigging out or anything…just haven’t been making great choices.  So my workout sessions have just really been cancelling out the bad food choices.  And I know that I’ll find it again.  I found it once, way back in January/February/March-ish…I know I have it in me.  I just need to kick myself in the ass.

I’m still dealing with the hormonal stuff…that part of my life is really starting to get me down.  I can’t even really talk about it here…but I have joined a couple support groups for other people who suffer from PCOS because until you have it…you really don’t truly get what is going through my mind…And I don’t really feel like putting any of that in here.  Just know that I’m getting tired of getting the run around from all the doctors. They send me for blood tests only to show that yup, my numbers haven’t changed. So they send me away and tell me that they will check my levels in 6 months. 6 months later…more blood tests, same stupid results, but no fixes. So here I sit…with a body full of whacked-out hormones, and no one will fix me. Anyway…got away from myself there.

So ya, I’m still here and I’m still trying to fight my way back to where I know I can be…It just might take some time…more time than what it has already taken.

I know it’s been a while since I last updated this and I SHOULD have lots to talk about…but I don’t. I’m really not feeling it right now and maybe next month I’ll have something interesting to talk about. I can only hope.

Thank you for being here for me…even if I’ve never met you.  I know that there are other people out there who are struggling with this healthy lifestyle and maybe I just needed to let this out in the hopes that someone has some insights to share…

Until next month, I shall keep trucking on.
