It feels good to wake up before my alarm and get up and work out. I’m kinda shocked by it myself. But yep, I had my alarm set for 5:22am, I woke up at 5:18am, and got up and did the damn thing. It worked because sometimes it only takes me 5 min to wake my body up and get my workout clothes on, and sometimes it can be 10 min, today it was around 10 min so it worked out perfectly. I wasn’t rushing, I was able to complete my workout and get it crossed off my list!
At times my blog can take a personal turn, and I try not to let it too much. For my readers who have been with me from the beginning, you know how I go thru phases, but for the most part I try to keep a positive tone with my blogs. Well, it’s about to get a tiny bit personal. (and tmi sorry) It’s hard for me to talk about working out and not talk about eating. My eating is a problem right now. Since around November I have been having stomach issues, nausea, vomitting, etc and it has taken a toll on me. I don’t eat regularly at all. Andit was to the point where I had very little energy. Well I just went to the doctor this week to get the ball rolling to see what is up. I went to the gyno in December to rule out . I didn’t have a Primary Care Physcician already, just my gyno so once they said it wasn’t pregnancy related, I knew that there was a problem. So long story short, as of now I’m on meds for nauseau and when my blood work comes back they will probably refer me to a GI specialist.
Ok so in a nutshell I’m scared. I’ll admit it. I was telling my doctor that I started back working out and that I’m really surprised that it hasn’t caused my body to start eating. It’s the main reason why I want to get on Shakeology. Sure Shakeology has tons of vitamins, and all the good stuff, butthat’s not even why I want it. I know my body needs the fuel to build muscle and get my metabolisim going. By me not eating, I’m contradicting what I’m trying to do with my workouts. I know that I really need to check out the food guide that comes with my program, see what I may be able to hold down. It’s just so strange. But I’m still working out, I’m not gonna stop and hopefully my body will respond by wanting more food. Mind you, I’m not vomitting or feeling sick every single day, but it has been regularly since November. I’m not looking at the scale so much since starting ChaLean Extreme (bad idea if you’re doing weights) but my scale has a body fat analzyer which I don’t think is super accurate, but it’s a good gauge to know what’s going on. The great news is the number is going down, so that meansit’s working and somehow my body is working along with it.
I just wanted to do a quick post, mainly bc I was happy about being able to wake up before my alarm and get my workout done, and then the rest just kinda came out! lol But I wanted to go ahead and put it out there because there will be future posts where I’m sure it will be mentioned.
