Busy, Busy

I'm super late with my weigh-in!!!

Oh well, I'll just skip this week and do the weigh-in this Friday. I'm nearly positive I gained some weight back since Friday with all the crap I ate this weekend.


My port is bothering the crap out of me. Anytime I have to bend forward, I get all sore where my port is. I'm nearly positive it's just flappin' around in there, doing whatever the Hell it wants. I'll get that confirmed on Monday, though, when I go for my third fill.

It's not an intense pain, just super annoying. It keeps me from doing certain exercises at the gym.

Speaking of the gym, I haven't gone in a week. Half of the reason was because I hurt my foot last Tuesday during my training session. I stepped the wrong way during an agility exercise, and BAM! Shooting pains through my foot for three days. After it got better, I was just lazy. AND my trainer kept rescheduling on me. He's a nice dude and all, but he's rescheduled on me twice. I won't see him again until Friday.

I need to get back into the game.

I notice my weight loss progress is a lot slower than some. Honestly, that's because I still put crap in my mouth. It's mostly on the weekends, which is to be expected. I am a firm believer that you do not have to stick to a diet strictly 100%. Some Cheetos or some cake here and there won't hurt you. Unfortunately, I probably only stick to my diet 60% of the time, hence the slow progression of my weight loss.

My pants are starting to fit pretty loose, though. They're even getting baggy in the leg. The other day, I actually pulled my pants down without unbuttoning them. I didn't even realize I'd done that until they were off!

It's a new feeling, actually having clothes fit looser than tighter. I have never successfully lost weight in my entire life. The best I did was manage to stay around the same weight for about 3 years, but after that I just skyrocketed. I can't even remember the last time I weighed under 200lbs.

I'm not really giving my weight loss journey my all. Like I said, I've missed my workouts and only eat right about 60% of the time. However, I am learning that there is no such thing as "it's too late to try." Nope, I'm eliminating that from my vocabulary. It is never too late to try. It's never too late to start exercising again. It's never too late to improve the way I eat. It doesn't matter if I gain a pound or two here and there, because I can always bring it back down again.

Yup, positive Ashlee is positive.

And with that, I hope you guys have a great Tuesday!


  1. You are right - it's never too late. Just get your head back in the right space and you'll get there in no time!

  2. I had a lot of port pain in the beginning. I think the stitches pull on the muscles until the adapt too. Hope it's ok.
