Lazy Ninja

I got home last night and my head started pounding so by the time I was ready for the gym the nursery was closed. I did a shred workout with Jillian and felt like I had accomplished something. I also did the dishes, crocheted a little and made some pancakes and sausage for dinner. I didn't feel like eating but I had one 3 inch pancake and one 1 inch piece of sausage. Then later I ate some watermelon and a handful of pretzels. After eating watermelon for breakfast and cucumbers with carrots and chicken for lunch my day ended under 1000 calories, with tons of water and crystal light.

My doc has instructed me to up my calories to 1800 and be sure to keep hydrated until I can see her in August. Hopefully we'll figure out why I'm so tired all the time, and why I'm having so much nausea and so many headaches. Maybe it's time to have thyroid levels checked again (let's all pray on that one.)

I don't know if any of you are familiar with grave's disease but if it comes back I might have to have my thyroid removed, either by surgically taking it out or by dissolving it with an atomic bomb cocktail (okay maybe that's an exaggeration, maybe) I am terrified of having my thyroid removed. I am scared that it will make me gain weight and be fat forever, at least with a malfunctioning thyroid I lose weight and only get crazy. What's worse fat or crazy?

I have my doubts about the absoluteness of an answer to that question. Losing weight is hard and taking away the biological thing that makes a metabolism work would make it exponentially harder. I'm watching hard for symptoms and I'm not having any aside from being tired and having headaches (which by the way are also symptoms of being a mother of two (adorably cute and remarkably endearing) spider monkeys on speed.  (maybe it's a too-mah)

I have to keep paying for the gym if I go or not, so the frugal part of me is demanding that I get my only slightly flabby ass in gear.

Funny story: after "magic time" yesterday, Jeeves and I were laying in bed and he says, "Wow! that's the thinnest your thighs have ever been, look how skinny you are!" I happen to know he is telling the truth, so he is noticing the changes to other parts of my body than my behind (which he laments the loss of) But I don't care if he was lying through his teeth, he got super awesome hubby of the year points for that.

Don't worry about your thyroid. I was diagnosed with an enlarged thyroid when I was 18. My mom has had hers removed, so has my aunt and grandmother. Obviously it runs in the family. But they never had any weight gain or loss when it was removed. They just felt TONS better.

'magic time'....hilarious! love that expression!

Crystal light makes water easier on days when you just need a little sweet or change of flavor. Have you tried the appletini and margarita flavored CL? Yummy.

'magic time'.... ;) good stuff, great compliment!

Hey- ive been reading 'The Insulin Resistance Diet' lately and it talks a lot about being tired, headaches, moods, etc. It has really helped me a lot- maybe it would help you a bit too. Take care- Im so excited to hear about your progress.

Hope the extra calories helps your fatigue. No fun being tired and unmotivated all the time.

Amanda said...

I agree...the fatigue might be coming from lack of nutrition. Make sure you are getting some protein. Up those cals. I am worried about you!

But fabulous compliment from the hubs!!

My thyroid is funk also. Trying to get it in order, more blood work in another month or so. For a bit my was in order but after 10 years on the same drug and dose it's wrong again. They can fix it but it does make losing weight more difficult but not impossible.
You will be okay, you have enough to worry about with the kiddo's, don't worry about your thyroid. By the way my grandma and aunt don't have theirs either and they are alive, well..grandma skinny, aunt not so much so.
Take care and God Bless~~
