Updates/Life Sucks Sometimes

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

From September - December 2014 I worked almost 7 days a week. Starting in January I just couldn't get back in the habit (I had lost my zumba instructor and was really sad).

January - June 2015 I was just lazy, I had gotten back in bad habits. So I have gained back all the weight I had lost.

In life sucks sometimes updates:

March: My husband and I took a cruise the first week of March where he got sick half way through so it wasn't the best trip ever. It took him almost all of March to recover.

April: A car fell on my husband's hand at the house (he's a mechanic and was doing side work). He broke his ring finger and crushed some nerves in his fingers. He was unable to work and it took him all of April to recover.

May: Was fine, my husband was able to return to work but he got transferred.

And then....

June 1: I found out I was pregnant.

June 2: We had to make the extremely difficult decision to put down my cat (she had lost almost all her body weight and could barely walk).

June 23: Found out I was probably going to miscarry.

June 30: Found out I was for sure going to miscarry but decided to see if it would happen naturally. It was a blighted ovum or empty gestational sac. While my body was pregnant, no baby was ever formed.

July 6th: Made the also extremely difficult decision to have a D&C.

July 7: Had the D&C.

July 9 - 12: Had to travel to South Padre Island, TX for my brother in laws wedding as both my husband and I were in the wedding.

July 13 - now: Continued to heal emotionally and physically (although physically I've been okay for a few weeks. My hormone blood count levels are officially back to pre-pregnancy levels and got the all healthy clear from the dr's office).

There isn't much more to say about the miscarriage than to say the experience sucked. I'm doing okay provided I don't think about it too much, but it took some time to heal emotionally and physically.

I decided that I needed a change, and wanted to start taking care of myself again so now that I am mostly feeling better, I have joined a ladies fitness center that I was a member of 5 years ago. For the first time (maybe all year) I went to work out and lifted weights (maybe for the first time since I was a member at this center). I will be really sore tomorrow, maybe even tonight, but I feel good overall.

    Sorry for your loss, girl.

    Sounds like you've had a REALLY tough year! As I've mentioned to other people before, the nice thing is always stability that one can receive through God as He never changes. That would be something to look into for reassurance if you haven't tried it before.

    Regardless, I'm glad to see that you're trying to get back into the swing of things and get through these tough times. I've had some of my own, so I totally get it.

    You'll get back there! Weightloss is a JOURNEY, not a one time thing... you'll get there! :-)

    You've been through so much, it's overwhelming! But you are a strong woman, most likely stronger now than before because of what you've gone through. You are getting back on track, just as you are supposed to do--a recovery plan. Best to you as you struggle, but I think each day will be a little bit better.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I experienced a miscarriage years ago and it threw me into a rough space.

    I'm glad you have recovered physically and I hope that emotionally you will feel better each day.

    my goodness, what a difficult few months you had. I'm glad you are turning it around and making yourself healthy. Miscarriages are tough, I know. I was able to get pregnant again 15 months after mine, I call my daughter Kristal 2.0, good luck !

    So sorry to hear all that you have been through. Sorry about the miscarriage. That has to be very emotional. Hope now that you are better that you can concentrate on you and get back on track. Your poor husband too! Wow, when it rains it pours for you ; ( Take care.
