High School All Over Again.

So last night was my 10 year class Reunion. Class of 99' woo hoo!

Yeah.

Time has flown by, but I realized last night that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Surprising, Well, Myself!!!

This entire surgery/weight loss journey is certainly chaotic at times. But most of the time it surprises me in great ways!

The most current way is my new work out routine. I am LOVING getting up at 4:30 and exercising before work. And I can tell it's directly impacted my metabolism. Last week I did early workouts on Wednesday and Thursday, and I had energy ALL day. No 'mid afternoon' tiredness. And I was still able to go to bed at a decent time.

So I've decided to definitely keep up the with these super early work outs. I have much more energy, and I dropped 3 lbs in 2 days doing them! I can only imagine how much more I can lose and how fast I may lose it. My goal is to lose at least 3 lbs a week, if I lose more, fantastic. But I hope to not lose less.

Only time and perseverance will tell if my new work out routine will work. But I'm giving it everything I've got!

Ciao!

Rejuvenated... Finally!!!

So after my mini emotional break down, and LOTS of much needed crying. I'm finally almost 100% back to my post op, happy Mags.

I've joined a Gym and have committed to at LEAST 3 times a week. So far so good. I've been my 3 times this past week, and I've lost 4 POUNDS! I've finally also broken my damn plateau.

I had a tiny fill at the doctors this week, I'm almost to my 'sweet spot'. And I couldn't be happier. It's taken 6 flipping months to get here.

My sister is my best friend, my rock. She's also helped me out this week, more than she knows!! This past week of work was super, super shitty. And so I went to Kansas City Friday night, with Tony, and we stayed in with my sister and Brother In Law. I just needed to get the hell out of Topeka. Even if it was just one night, it did wonders for me!!! It's amazing how some people in your life can just instantly make you smile, and feel better.

So I've decided to start doing some good things for me again.

The first is to start up my food journal and exercise journal again. I know that helped me in the first 3 months post op, and that's when I did the BEST at eating and exercising. The second is to keep being diligent and working on things or situations that are making me unhappy. I've come too damn far to let some negative people or situations bring me down. The last is to spend some more quality time with Tony. We've been so busy lately that we haven't had time for us. And that bothers me. We're newly engaged and planning our wedding. I want to spend a night in with him, or do a date night, whatever. I just want some one on one time with my love...

I hope everyone has a great week! Mine will be busy to say the least.

Ciao!
