Gazelle work out

This morning I went for my B12 shot and my funny doctor said "Do ppl say, wow that girl has energy" hahh! I said NOPE! she said "OK then it's not working yet". ahahah She makes me laugh. Just as she was asking me I was thinking in my head how what a horrible schedule I have. I get to bed late, wake up late, arrive everywhere late. Yesterday I was so tired that I fell asleep at 6pm when I got home from work! Now that's not a girl with energy. NOPE!

So part of my new exercise goals I'm mixing the Shred DVD and my Gazelle workouts. I like changing it up. That way when I don't feel like doing one, I'll do the other.
Tonight there are some shows on Tv that I like. Modern Family and Cougar town. hilarious! My TV snack was carrots and dip :) (well the dip part is not too good, but good thing I didn't like it to much so left a lot :)

On the way home from work tonight we stopped by Winners and Homesense. I only walked out with a button shirt and also this piece of art. I love word art. Especially when it was only $10.00 :)

Today my lower back was hurting alot. I'm glad it doesn't hurt everyday but it's been hurting about twice a week. When will this cyst bursttttt already! I can't take it anymoreee!.... that's my little bit of drama, I'll just leave it at that.

I'm hoping to get to bed sorta early tonight. :) Good night!!

30 day shred friends...

30 day shred friends. How are you liking it? So I've been doing it for 2 months now, for an average of twice a week. Some times only once a week. My issues: If I have anything in my tummy, the jumping around makes me sick! If I'm on one of those off days where energy is low, the up and down movements make me dizzy! Are you having these same issues? I've been slowly moving away from the DVD and doing other exercises. Let me know your thoughts :)

For tomorrows work day snack I added a lot of cucumbers, carrots and cantaloupe. :)

I'm really trying to get healthy on the inside. I started taking a multi vitamin and I have my B12 shots every Wednesday. I also ordered from a blogger friends store. I'm ordering a nuplus powder full of nutrients to make healthy shakes and a Tea called Calli Tea for cleansing. Read more on her Site here.

Let's get healthy! ;)

Weekly Goals, but not this week.

Since I was feeling down the past couple days my husband wanted to cheer me up for lunch today and picked me up for Sushi :) Yes Sushi makes me happy ahah!
I ordered a roll box at this new place and it was huge! We both shared our meals with each other so it worked out fine :) Strangely my appetite was off yesterday and today, could be because I was a little worried and occupied with "Googeling!"

I read sooo much information on Ovarian Cysts and I feel much better. Yesterday my back was hurting A LOT! and because I knew why, it made me focus on that pain even more, but today it doesn't hurt at all... (I wonder if it's gone!!) I hope I hope I hope!

Going back to the information I found, I read that diet can help eliminate/prevent cysts. So I made notes and changed up my weekly goals for next week. AND I will be hitting the book store tonight too. (I know, I get obsessed with things, I just hate change! and even more if it's with my body...Controlling? Maybe a little ahah!)

Weekly Goals:
*5 days a week of home cooking, include many "green" veggies and carrots.
*Drink lots of water everyday! A MUST!
*Coffee - Only 1/2 cup in the morning only.
* 1300 - 1600 daily Calories intake (Tracking on Iphone "my fitness pal app)
*3 bite rule on sweets
*Eliminate "White"Carbs
* 3 days a week basement work out (Jillian Michaels 30 day shred video)
* 3 days a week 10000 steps on the pedometer
* More sleep! I've been staying up late and waking up grumpy not good, for anyone ahah!
* loofah body scrub to enhance circulation :)

I also read that increasing Vitamin A and B's are very good so I think my B12 shot will have much more use than 1!

I always see things as a "sign" and I think I have been getting the hints to make some major changes, and changes to continue my life with. Our bodies speak to us and we must listen, or it gets mad and won't hide it for long.

So glad the weekend is almost here!!!

OUCH - I'm Ok...

Just a quick update on my results. I went to the doctor this morning to get my first B12 shot. I hate needles, well who really likes em haha! She told me to relax, was talking to me saying I obviously do not eat enough meat etc etc then BAM a stab in arm ouch! I read that it should give energy, however I feel like crap today along with a big headache! I'm misinformed ahah!
I also got my results for my ultrasound and I was debating posting it on my blog, thinking maybe it's TMI but I decided I think it's ok, plus I have amazing blogger friends that always give me helpful and kind sweet comments and always make me feel better :)
Ok, so results in and I have a large cyst in my left ovary, this is what is causing my lower back pain. (not muscle pain) I was going to cry when she told me, but she told me it is VERY common and re-assured me I can still have my 12 babies as planned, her humor not mine ha! But she did say it will burst on it's own and that will cause some pain but will pass. EEK not looking forward to that! I left sorta shocked and now have a million questions for her for the next time I see her.
This week has not been good so far in terms of diet and exercise, but now that I know my results I can just address them when I need to and move on. Tomorrow I will get back on track and continue my workout with the 30 day shred and continue my 1300-1600 calorie intake. Time to take charge of my health! And not let these "issues" get in my way! :)

Take this B12...Or not

Huge piece of B12 Ha! Tonight we went out for a steak dinner...wish we has Sushi instead because after eating most of that huge steak above, my head feels cloudy! and I have the biggest headache. I know it could easily be the salt and not so much the meat, either way. Whats up with that!

I read up on B12 Deficiency and really can't think of reasons why I'm that low. I really don't want to think to far into it and make myself crazy. So I will do as the doctor says. I'm going tomorrow morning for my first B12 shot and to discuss this new issue grr! (sorta really scared of needles AHHH)

Before our big dinner we went to pick up our new car. Car #2! for the past 4 1/2 years since husband and I moved in together we were always ok with 1 car, then again we use to live in the city where a cab to downtown was less than 20 bucks, and ttc was at our doorstep, with the subway 3 mins down the street....
Ahhhhh freedom! ahaha. We both can be free to go out when we want without worrying about the other being trapped in suburbia! ahaha. Happy day!

Psst... 98 Followers! 2 more to 100! Now this is exciting stuff! Thanks for following :)

A Day of NEWS

ahaah had to show the meat pic... Well today I spent it worrying about my ultra sound and (peeing all that water I had to drink for it! 13 times in total aahah) 4pm I see my doctor's number on my cell phone. My heart drops and I was thinking it was about the ultrasound. Close, last week I went for blood work and it just so happens I'm very low in B12 and now I have to go in weekly for B12 shots! :( I have no clue what this means, I need to do my research and I'm going in Wednesday to talk to her and get my first shot. My cousin told me not to worry and that my cousin who is a vegetarian is always low in B12. I do eat meat, but I know I do not eat enough. I will be looking up the foods I should be eating, if you know more on this topic, please let me know!! :)

Ahem, this is the same doctor that told me to stop taking multi vitamins years ago. BOO shoulda taken them!!

Not liking these surprises!!

BUT there was 1 good surprise today tho, (altho, I already knew 2 months ago) My brother and his wife decided to announce to the family today that they are pregnant! I'm soooo excited to be an aunt!!!! Today was also my dads birthday, he would have been 54 today :( he passed away in 2002, and we miss him soooooo much. He would have been sooo happy to be a grandfather :( But I know he is always with us everyday in spirit and I am ok with that too :)

Me and my dad 1981 ;)
