Someone mentioned how honest and open my blogs are and that I should consider doing a weight loss blog. Not just here on SP, but like out there in the internet. DH is all for it, can't wait to make me a website and wants me to also do a youtube channel with it. I mentioned it to the girls and they are ecstatic, they want me to have a 'kids corner' for them to encourage people too. I'm kinda like, "There's monsters out there!" You know what I mean. People who are mean on purpose. Trolls. I think I can handle it, but what if I can't? I'd start over with 'Day 1' for the new blog. I'd post everything here too, as usual. I don't know. I'm kinda excited about it, but still wary. If it takes off, I could make money off of it, if I do ads. If it doesn't take off, would my feeling get hurt? Would I be upset? I don't know. I blog for me, not for other people, so I don't think I'd get upset, I think I'd be relieved, lol. DH is setting up the domain and main page and looking at how to do Google Ads.
I'm up at 0400. I woke up, wide awake and figured it wasn't worth it to lay down just to sleep until 0445. Yes, that is what time I'm getting up now. I'm working out longer so I need the extra time so that I can wake up and drink a cup of coffee first. Takes me a while to wake up enough to work out. I'm not just snap, awake, like I used to be able to do. With doing the Jillian Michael's workout I can only have 1 cup of coffee before I work out. Any more than that I concerns about throwing up. Can't have a bunch of coffee sloshing around my belly while doing that intense of a workout.
Oldest DD wants me to wake her up to do the shred video with me, and then she gets a little mat and does step aerobics with me. She had me wake her up yesterday, and while it is really sweet, she was really in my way. It's a small space I have to work out in. But she's so enthusiastic, I don't want to burst her bubble. I appreciate that she wants to encourage me and help me on this journey. So when I go to work out, I'll gently try to wake her up. If she does, that's fine, if she doesn't, that is fine too. She's so sweet!
NSV! My pants slide right off, I don't have to unbutton them! I feel a little stronger, and I have a little more endurance. I don't get so tired in the middle of the day, I don't feel like I have to have a 'quiet time' in order to make it through the day. I can make it through the whole Beginners Shred DVD, it does wear me out, but I can do it! According to the scale, I've actually gained weight. But my NSV points towards it being muscle, not fat.
The whole money crisis is almost over! The bank is refunding our money (especially since more than half of the charges were after we called the bank and had them stop payments and reported fraud on this) and then the bank will go after the company to refund them the money. They charged us a the $200 a grand total of 11 times. Our account went into the negative. I'm so relieved the bank is handling it. If you are a military member or were in the military, go with USAA, they are so great!
After working out for so long yesterday (total 85 minutes) and eating really well, my glucose level dropped to almost 70. What the chicken? I was feeling lightheaded, so I checked it and it was that low! So we had to go and get me something to eat, get some sugar/carbs into my system. I think I'm going to have to be careful with working out so much that I eat enough carbs to restore some balance in my system. I am going to call today and get that appointment with my diabetic counselor. I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm just winging it. And with diabetes, that is not good.
Another NSV is that my acne is almost totally gone. I know I owe that to Juice Plus+. I stopped taking it for a while, just forgot about it because I didn't have it out where I could easily see it/get to it. And my acne came back full force. I was appalled. I like having very little acne. I've tried rinses and creams and antibiotics, nothing works as well as Juice Plus+ Vineyard Blend. I'm not advertising here, I get no points or whatever if you buy it, I don't sell it. Just being real and telling you what works for me. I'm using Bio Oil for the redness, it had started going away last time I was using it. I am, however, going to speak to my doctor about the redness when I go in to talk about my feet going numb. I may need to go to a dermatologist. I'm cool with that because I have skin tags I want taken off too. Did you know that skin tags are one of the side effects of diabetes? Bummer huh?
Okay, time to go get my workout on!
Would love to hear your thoughts on my starting a blog!
