progress is progress

Monday, February 27, 2017

So my diet isn't really existent, but I'm not eating super unhealthy. I'm sticking with low carb bread, and tortillas, drinking lots of water but still eating out occasionally. I am working out a lot more than I was, I'm doing a mix of running and walking everyday, along with doing stairs on Friday. I'm a work in progress and I'm just trying to take a few steps forward each week. I track my steps daily on fitbit and I set my goals higher each week. the scale hasn't changed much though, I've been maintaining. I do notice a difference in my legs though, I can see muscle definition coming back step by step. this week I'm kicking it up to 2 workouts a day for the next several days, and I'm going to try and meet my step goals this weekend because I usually slack off on the weekends. I also plan on incorporation weights into my day and pushups, I haven't decided how I'm going to do that yet but I do want to start building muscle in my arms.

Some big news is I signed up for the warrior dash 2017 here in Oklahoma. I did the dash a couple of years ago as a last minute invite and it killed me. I was terrified to do most of the obstacles, and It took me several hours to finish. so I've set some goals for myself this time and I'm actually training for it. I want to finish in at least half the time, and I want to atleast attempt all of the obstacles, because last year if I even thought I couldn't do it I wouldn't even try.

I also finally decided to go to the doctor this year, and if im honest its been about 6yrs since ive gone. I had my thyroid tested and the results were inconclusive, 1 thing the look at was normal, 1 was low, and 1 was high. so they then sent me for an ultrasound of my thyroid and they wouldn't tell me much other than they found something they shouldn't have. so now on the 14th I go in for a fine needle biopsy, where they are going to pull fluid from my throat to test it. im honestly terrified that its going to come back as cancer, I know the odds are against that but im still worried. I refused to go to the dr for several years and what if it is cancer and I let it spread because I was stubborn and broke.
