Week 2 of Another Weight loss Journey

Week 2 of 24

I’m not seeing it. Not even a little bit. These Total Life Labs Keto pill don’t seem to be doing much. My appetite is suppressed, but I’m also noticing my bowel movements are not what they were before and I feel bloated and constipated, something that usually only happens when I travel.

I haven’t lost any weight, not even a few ounces and its becoming very frustrating when I’m not eating that much and when I do, it’s usually veggie based. As for exercising, its very low impact and mostly cardio; walking/jogging/roller blading with the dog and the kids. I’m sure I need to add in some weight routines, I will work on that this week. Counting calories will be a good idea as well, I will add that into my next update.

In conclusion, I’m two weeks into using these “magic pills” and they aren’t feeling so magical. It’s starting to feel disappointing but I’m going to keep using them for a while longer, hopefully there is a turning point soon.

Wishing everyone a very Happy, Healthy, and Successful Week!

Slow and Steady

It’s not a crazy fast start, but it’s a start getting back into an exercise routine. There was a point when I was doing 4-5 miles in about a hour. But then I dropped the ball when an enormous bowling ball called “virtual school” got thrown into the mix.

I know, theoretically, I am not supposed to do anything. The kids login and follow along with the teachers and it’s like I’m not even here, right? Well. Maybe some of y’all are fortunate enough to have kids who are self motivated and learn really easily. Mine are not those kids. They need help and get frustrated trying to talk to the teacher thru the camera. They are home and feel they can get up and move around anytime they want. I need to feed them, give them snacks. Then they want to share things and play with the puppy. They like to fight with each other all day long. In between this, I need to finish my work.

This has been my biggest gripe about COVID, is the virtual school. I am sorry I’ve brought it up several times now, but holy hells bells captain! It’s been tough.

I finally am at the end of my rope, they need to go back to school. I had a meeting with our school team last week, and the boys started back today! HALLELLULAH!!!

It’s only for a half days this week. So they go from 8-11am then come home and do math and specials virtually for now. Hopefully, next week they can stay thru lunch and math, and eventually the whole day the week after that. They were excited when I picked them up, they had a great day! PRAYING we have more of these days! I hate getting the phone calls from the school that one of my kids is freaking out.

All I can do is keep on trying and keep on running! What is the old saying, “Slow and Steady wins the race”

Have a beautiful day !
