M.I. 75

It began today. M.I. 75. Curious? If so, you're way to easy! 

I got up yesterday and stood on the scale for about the 5th time since I finished the round of steroids and tore ligaments in my foot. IT HAS NOT MOVED. Why is this a problem? I gained 7lbs during the round of steroids. 7lbs. in 15 days. How is that even possible? I was hoping it was fluid. Nope. And for those of us who are paying attention - I could NOT afford to gain weight. Period. Yet, here we are!

I'm beyond mad! My body sucks. It doesn't function properly and I HATE it with a passion! So, I've implemented M.I. 75. I need to lose at LEAST 75lbs. and it seems like an impossible feat. I'm starting by putting one foot in front of the other. If I make massive changes I will NOT stick with it. One change at a time. I'm choosing consistency with exercise and change 1.

I have an appointment with an endocrinologist in February. Hopefully she can help give a little insight into what in the world is going on with my body, medically speaking, but I cannot afford to just sit around in the meantime.

Do I think it's fair that I have to workout 10x harder (ok maybe not 10, but for those of you who have ever experienced metabolic issues, you know what I mean) than other people and still not see results? Nope. Am I going to do it anyways. Yep. Because I'm ANGRY! Today I went to the gym before I did anything else. I walked a mile, stretched, did squats (HATE them!), biceps and triceps. Day 1. Success.

I really don't care if anyone reads this...it's mostly for me. If I force myself to update it every week, perhaps that will shame me into going to the gym more consistently.  Having to admit that I either went or was a loser and didn't might just do the trick.

YOU CAN DO THIS! One day at a time, one decision at a time.

Now that the semester is waning and I have no homework in my class, I'm going to get back to walking a few nights a week. I should be able to do that and keep my house in order. I had to quit a few weeks ago because laundry was getting out of hand and it was next to impossible to walk through my living room without getting significant "grit" on your feet. LOL.
