Yesterday I was at a doctor’s appointment and we were discussing my thyroid lab results (totally normal!) and I asked my doctor the reason why I seem to have trouble losing weight. She told me that because I’m at a normal weight, I can use exercise to tone up but I probably won’t lose weight. I wanted to cry.
Now I KNOW the number doesn’t mean everything, I KNOW it doesn’t give an accurate representation of my health, I KNOW I feel stronger and more fit and my clothes fit looser, I KNOW muscle weighs more than fat….I know all these things! Trust me, I spent 4 years of my life studying the body and exercise and health. But still! It’s frustrating to be working hard and for that little number not to move one bit. Now it’s a challenge. I’m going to prove her wrong. (in a healthy way, of course)
Today I leave the office for a work related retreat. It will be fun and, while it is nice to get to work out of the office for two days (and start casual Friday a day early!), it’s always a little stressful, because I know there will be catch up work when I get back! Anyone else go through the same…I guess, work guilt?! I was at work until 9 last night and will be working for a couple of hours this morning before we take off. My next couple of posts will be on the road. That should be interesting. We’ll see how my blogging app works out!
If you didn’t get to participate in the #Blogsmarter Twitter Chat last night, you missed out! It was awesome! As usual 🙂 I really enjoy these and the hour just went by so fast! I can’t wait for the recap so I can take it all in. I believe a couple of the lovely hosts will be doing a recap post, so I’ll be sure to let you know when that is up!
There were a couple of things that were brought up that I did want ask you guys about:
- Do any of you self-host? What are the benefits? Any cons? Where do you self-host from? I think I want to do this eventually, so I’d like all the information on it that I can get!
- Do any of you have blogging business cards? Would you recommend them? I guess it’s just not something that ever occurred to me!
- What do you do to stay safe while blogging/using public forums?
- What programs do you use to make your pictures look better? This is especially needed because I seem to only ever have my phone with me! (as you guys have probably noticed) I don’t even know where my actual camera is…oops.
Well, I still have to pack, so I better go. What is it about packing that is so awful?!
Tricks and tips for blogging on the road?
Has your doctor ever told you something you didn’t like to hear?
