What’s been up? A whole lot, that’s for sure!
I had made a New Years resolution when 2013 came around last year which was to lose weight within the year, I wanted to go back down to 130 pounds as I noticed I was gaining weight again, so I was determined to lose weight and go back to my original weight. I know I was having a hard time with eating once I moved to Brockville – I was overeating which was not much fun. So I decided to count calories and eat less so I could lose weight. It worked – it took forever, but I lost 20-30 pounds in one year so by the end of December I was in my goal weight – 128-130.
Then when 2014 came around I was determined to start working out, it was my new resolution, so to get my energy back up in a good level. But I was finding that a very difficult thing to do, unfortunately. :/ Ugh. I still am currently having a tough time with that. I actually found that the workout videos by Zuzka Light were available for Canadians finally after 2014 came around so I ordered them a couple of months ago, and they are quite good. Unfortunately I’m not quite yet in a good shape to actually do it all, so it’s pretty difficult. Her workouts are always so painful when you start out on them. There are twelve different workouts in the DVDs and I have only gotten up to the 8th one. It’s pretty tough, and my weight hasn’t really changed much – I was gaining again so I wasn’t happy about that, so I decided to get my thyroid checked and see my doctor. My thyroid was still in a good place – so much so that it helped me lose weight in the past year. My doctor is now checking for other things that may be affecting my health – as I’m constantly tired and have no energy and she thinks it may be mostly perimenopause (I’m 34 after all!) but she’s checking for other things as well so to see what happens. Hopefully they’ll find something soon.
I spent a lot of the beginning of 2014 watching the Big Bang Theory Blu-rays. I just finished the 6th season in the end of March. Heh…Steve thought I was crazy for watching so much but I was also feeling off after the New Years which sucked, and helped me watch so much. *laughs*
When 2014 started, it started out pretty quietly. I was also going through all my photos on my computer, I had tons and tons of photos on the computer that I really, really wanted to print out for myself, to put in my albums. So I could just look through them instead of having to turn on my computer and dig through all the crappy pictures to get to the good to print out. I like the good, old times where you just look through albums and talk to people about different pictures. I do that online with people I know but I like seeing them in person usually. I went to Walmart with Steve to develop some pictures, but I’m not even done yet. I had like 700 to develop that day, and Steve had 200, so not too bad for him. Steve is done developing the pictures he wanted, but I’m not done yet, which is sad. I developed hundreds of photos…and unbelievably enough I’m not even done. That was horrible…now I’m just waiting to get more money so to develop more pictures. Heh…crazy.
Steve got sick with a cold flu in February and I had to take care of him, and then I got sick with it. Sigh…it was no fun at all! I got the flu shot in the fall but that flu wasn’t covered by the shot, and it really wiped you right out. Valentine’s Day was quiet for both of us…I think I got the flu around Valentine’s Day while Steve was getting better, so yay us. Fun…
Steve was also checking out on getting a house and whether he would be able to. He wasn’t too sure if he could on his own, but because I wasn’t really working full time I couldn’t help him out, even though I have really good credit, so…oh well. Anyway, he was looking into it and he was told by his dad’s broker that he would have to work on rebuilding his credit before he could get a house. We had been talking about looking around for houses and all that, as it’s really, really affordable around here. But he still had to find out and now he has to work on rebuilding his credit…so much fun. Too bad I’m still on disability. Blah…not like I would be able to find work really – I’ve been working with the Canadian Hearing Society for a while on help on finding work and they haven’t even found anything either. So yeah…fun.
Anyway, just a while ago I was checking with the doctor to see what was wrong with me – I was just feeling so exhausted, and was a bit moody and so on, so on, so I was trying to see what was wrong with me. The doctor thought maybe I may have either a B-12 deficiency or celiac disease. I was like, really? More stuff where I would need more medicine for? She’s just checking information and checking my blood to see, just in case I have it, but she believes it may just be my stages of perimenopause as it’s very similar to thyroid issues. Fun. Sigh…not so much fun for Steve to be around me that’s for sure! Heh…the exhaustion I’m really sick of. I want to feel normal again, but that’s all up in the air right now. Heh…
I was looking up coupons online for various stuff, and found one for the Harlem Globetrotters and I thought it’d be fun, so I asked Steve if he wanted to check them out, as we weren’t quite saving up money for houses or anything like that right now as Steve needed to rebuild his credit up first, so I asked him if he wanted to go see them and he did, so I ordered two tickets for us to go watch the game. I’ve always heard about them and it sounded like fun…so we went to see them in Kingston and it was hysterical. Lots of fun and lots of entertainment, that’s for sure. It’s funny because the official Harlem Globetrotters Instagram site liked our picture together with the basketball court in the background of us. So it was a bit funny.
We went out to dinner at Kelsey’s as Steve had done some video work for a woman he knew from work, and she was so grateful for the help, that she gave him two gift cards to restaurants, so we decided to use one of them last night. It was a good meal – I always like Kelsey’s fajitas! Heh…we also went to Mac Johnson Wildlife Trails to look at the melting snow on the river and enjoy it – it was quite warm yesterday, like it was today. Spring is finally coming…I hate winter so much, I really do. The cold really gets to me, especially now that I have lost all my weight. Shee…heh.
