Yes I know I haven’t posted since my last Vegas post.
After getting home, I had a couple of depressed days and then yesterday was very busy.
When I am depressed, all I do is pretty much stay in bed and watch Netflix. And that’s okay. I was doubting my parenting abilities. My son decided he is Emo and wanted his hair died as well as his nails polished black and get his ears pierced. Well, I wasn’t able to express myself growing up and ended up hating my mother for many years because of it so I let him do it.
Am I glad I let him do this? No. I think it looks awful! Am I glad he is expressing himself? Most definitely! Better this than drugs, alcohol, or sex. So it was an internal debate over all these changes. We had a good time in Vegas and had to come back here which I never want to do but know I have to.
I have also woken up with a headache for the past 4 mornings. I mean, the “I can’t move or do anything” kind of headache. When I finally get up, it sticks around about half the day (I still have it now). That didn’t help me feel any better either.
I finally got in some exercise yesterday other than the plank challenge. I just used my 5 pound dumbbells and did 36 minutes of exercises with them as well as squats and dancing in between. I’m still at 148.6. I just want to maintain this weight and didn’t realize how hard it would be! I constantly have to check myself because I can drop pounds or gain pounds in just a week!
I cooked yesterday as well. I got a beef stew recipe from this couple called peaceloveandlowcarb. I couldn’t use mushrooms because I am allergic to them so I substituted green beans and I forgot to put the bacon in it. It still turned out so good! And spicy for some reason. There’s nothing spicy in the recipe but I had to eat a babybel cheese after the stew because my mouth was on fire (I love that)! It was absolutely delicious!!!
Between them and Kasey Trenum, you can eat really well doing keto if you know how to follow a recipe.
I also made my son his lasagna and some taco meat to have with my low carb tortillas and cheese. All the cheese. Yum!
I had 2 interviews last week. One at my gym working the gym floor (I would love that job) and one at my local vitamin store. I had so much fun with the guys at the vitamin store too. Both of these are part time which works better for me since I am still running my business as well. I have another interview tomorrow for working the front desk at my gym. I hope to hear back from someone quick so I can start working and make some money. I have no savings left! I also want to save up for the skin removal surgery since nobody (other than Andrea and my neighbor) has sent me anything.
Y’all have a good day. I have Anatomy lab work due tomorrow and a test next week in Nutrition so I bet you know what I’m doing the rest of the day!
