30 day yoga challenge

I just signed up for a 30 day yoga challenge.  Not many details yet, but they will be coming.  It is for the month of May.

I also just purchased a groupon.com  for a 28 day challenge with a small group trainer.  It has to be 28 consecutive days, so I need to check my calender to figure out when I can start.  I know I have some travels coming up and don't want those to interfere.

I started Nutrisystem a couple weeks ago.  On most days I've been eating an average of 1,100 calories.  I haven't lost ONE pound, and my clothes still fit the same.  Not happy about this.  My thinking is that I'm not getting enough calories for my body so it continues to store the fat in fear of starvation.  Although I'm not hungry?  So, I'm going to eat more veggies next week and see if that helps.  I hate veggies.  I can do it.

Hopefully a combination of the above will help to feel better.  Less tummy, more energy, more sleep (I have trouble sleeping).  That's all I want!  Is it really asking too much?

Credit Cards

I've updated my debt sidebar.  I've been so close to paying it off, then I just give up.  And I'm about to use my credit card again.  Taking the kids on our family vacation this summer.  I'm using the card to book the flight/hotel, but by the time we leave, we'll have enough saved up to pay the rest in cash.

Logically, I should not do a vacation this year.  And I should use that cash to pay down the debt.

I won't put my rationalizations here.

I've struggled with my weight since 2004.  It was that time that I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism.
Before that I averaged size 7, around 125 pounds.  Now I'm at 190, size 14.

I've stopped talking about, but I need to start again.  Why did I stop talking?  People would assume it's my fault.  They would assume that my thyroid pill would take care of it.  I even had an endocrinologist tell my husband to buy me bigger clothes.

People, a thyroid pill is not a magic cure.  You still have symptoms.  You still struggle with weight.

I don't eat horribly unhealthy food.  I don't eat all the time.  I do move around.  I don't sit on my ass all the time.  Although the more I've struggled with this lately, the more I've sat around.  I'm tired of trying and not seeing any results, so why try?  I trained for and completed a 1/2 marathon last year.  Not a pound lost.

There's my introduction.

Test post...

I'm trying to figure out how to post a post on one of my other pages.
