Allergies Suck!


"Do what you feel in your heart is right..for you'll be criticized anyway." ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Weight loss this week: 0 lbs.
Weight loss Total: 29 lbs.

This past week has not been a great week for me. Many of you know i vented a little on facebook last week about a co-worker of mine doing a diet. Not any diet. It's call HCG diet drop. What is HCG? HCG drops are homeopathic drops that help curbing your appetite. They naturally boosts metabolism in your body that consequently burns fat.They say to take two drops daily to losing at least 21 pounds in 21 days. People begin with high calorie diet for two days before taking HCG drops and then they should maintain a low calorie diet plan for losing weight effectively. No exercising is recommended. Wow.. co-worker lost 19 lbs in 2 weeks. First thought was.. B**CH how now nice to lose all that without exercising. I was upset just a little bit. For she lost about the same weight i did without all my hard work. Then after awhile and a few encouraging words from friends I know that she'll probably gain it back after a while and I'm okay with that. I'm happy she lost it but i also know that doing it the unhealthy way is not good. So that being said I am still maintaining my 29 lbs. loss and hoping to see my scale move downward some more. I feel like i keep hitting these plateaus. On top of all that I have been battling a bad case of seasonal allergies. If anyone who has allergies know it sucks. I've taken Zyrtec and just switch to Claritin-D. I'm hoping that will work.In the meantime I will just have to look like a puffer fish.

On a much happier note i bit the bullet and bought the Zumba for Wii. I hope i love it as much as everyone says it's great. Will report next week how i did. It's coming in the mail on Tuesday and can't wait. Now off to this week's mamavation question:

What is your #1 challenge when it comes to workouts?

My number one challenge is to stay hydrated while working out. I tend to forget to keep drinking while I'm in the middle of my workout. I just keep going and going and i don't stop till I'm done. By then I'm thirsty as hell. Anyone else have that problem?

Have a great week everyone! Happy Monday!

  1. I know it's soo hard sometimes when people do things like that! I have a friend who is on adipex ILLEGALLY and I used to be on that stuff so I know what it does - curbs hunger AND gives you TONS of energy..,but when you go off its like DEPRESSION you can't hardly get out of bed! But she gets to keep taking it b/c she has it illegally so she keeps having all this energy, not eating much and dropping weight while I continue to struggle..,but were doing it the RIGHT way and that's what counts!

  2. It's not just about dropping pounds, it's about getting healthy! You are doing great, don't worry about anyone but yourself :)

  3. I agree with Sarah! Doing it the healthy way is the way to go! Those pounds that you lost are sustainable- the ones she lost by using gimmicks are NOT.
    My allergies STINK lately, and to top it all off, I have a cold now, too. I'm miserable! I hope that you feel better soon!
