weigh in monday

this past week was rough.  emotionally crazy.  i only made it to the gym once.  this past weekend i was HUNGRY.  hungry for lasagna.  hungry for spaghetti.  hungry for mac and cheese.  yep, it was “that” week.  only it wasn’t exactly.  cramps, check.  crazy hormones, check.  and that is it.  so i am not sure what is going on with my body exactly other than “it is normal to have completely different hormones and cycles after a miscarriage.”  blah. blah. blah.

i was beyond surprised to weigh myself this morning to find i had lost 4 pounds.  i don’t know how.  i know i have been a huge b.i.t.c.h. this weekend because i was so hungry.  (even though i am totally eating appropriate calories!)  so i would like to apologize to the hubster.  seriously.  you are a rock star for putting up with me.

my total lost is now 22 pounds in 6 weeks.  i wish i felt better emotionally.  i wish i could be excited about this.  instead i am all hormonal and feel like it isn’t enough.  i keep telling myself these hormones will pass and to stick it out.  i am stronger than the crazy.

now that i feel i can breathe without having the snot and crud suffocate me i am back at the gym.  this morning an hour on the elliptical.  whoot.  i am hoping this week i can start feeling more like myself.  respond to emails i didn’t get around to doing so last week.  get to work on some pillows for my shop.  start moving again.

i did get my zumba for the wii and have done a couple of workouts.  i am pretty sure i have no inner latin goddess but i will keep trying to shake her out.  if anything it provides the husband with lots of laughter.

laughter is always a good thing.  lets hope this next week brings a lot more of it!

You totally should get one of those hip wraps with all the coins on it! It makes shaking your "good stuff" so much easier, since there's an audible feedback, lol.Good luck with the hormones. I hope you feel better soon. I had the same week last week! It's so crazy to be crying and feel like you're inside going, "but I'm not even particularly sad!" but not really able to stop what the hormones are doing!
