Stress On the Body

So the last couple of weeks I have been stressed out over several different situations, but hey that's life, right? But the down side of being stressed out and upset over things is that body pays me back in such horrible ways such as massive headaches that tend to lean into migraines and really horrible acne. I seriously thought it was clearly up but look it, it seems worse:

The acne on my forehead has doubled in size. Not the greatest photo but you can see some of it. I'm even getting a new on my cheek. But a good friend has sent me something to try and clear it up so I'm really looking forward to that. 

And to add to that I got a headache this afternoon. I thought it might be from not eating much today, but I ate something before I went to an event I had to attend and even ate something smaller there but it steadily got worse. I finally came, took out my contacts (which for me intensifies the pain) and took some meds, and now the pain is slowly abating. 

So ready for Saturday so that I can get back to getting rid of my stress in the best way for me: working out!!

Random thought of the day: At my event I was able to reconnect with some ladies that I haven't seen in almost 2 months and I have had my hair cut since then. One told me that she almost didn't recognize me that my new cut made me look younger. And that made me feel great. As I'm coming up on my 34 birthday in a few months I'm having a hard time dealing with it. Turning 30 didn't phase me, but something about 34 and being close to my mid 30's is killing me.

That Ugly Fat Girl?

So I was taking a look at my past blogs the other day and I came across the blog I wrote back in April that showed my weight loss journey in pictures. And all I can say is OMG! That starting picture is so freaking horrendous. I can't believe that I actually thought I looked pretty weighing that much. I can't believe that my husband actually found me attractive then. And I can honestly say that I was not one of the pretty fat girls...I was just plain fat and ugly. Its funny what lies one's self will tell them to help them feel good about themselves. I look at myself then and then I look at myself now and can't even comprehend that they are the same person. I feel like I'm a completely different person now. I AM a completely different person now. 

But every once in a while I still look at myself I still see a fat, overweight, ugly person. Like today, I know I had just rocked it on the treadmill doing sprint intervals (definitely going to add that to my workout plan mo…

2014 Update

It's been a while since I wrote a blog...almost a year in fact...

I have struggled so much with my weight over the last couple of years. I went from about 145 lbs up to 200 lbs. I'm back down in the 190's but so upset since I was so happy when I was in the 140s. I need to tighten my belt, for lack of better words, and get back to watching my diet and really and truly get back to counting calories since I know that works for me. 

What really is heart breaking for me is going up in size in clothing. I went from wearing a size 8 to a 14, now back down to 12. I hate buying new clothes when I ones I love just sitting in my closet now being worn.

The good thing this all is that I truly never gave up working out. I might have not been doing it at the intensity that I was in the past but that has change about 5 months ago. Five months ago I found CrossFit and fell in love. I have found through this program that it is very humbling and empowering. I have done more things that I have n…
