Hello friends, how are you? I’m glad it’s Thursday! I don’t have one big topic to talk about today so instead I thought I’d share a bunch of little things that have me thinkin’.
On Sunday, I got a B-12 shot at Sprouts Farmer’s Market. I’ve read a lot about B12 and how it can be a wonder vitamin in curing fatigue, allergies, anxiety and sluggish weight loss – all things that ail me. I decided to invest for $30, as $30 for a “cure” for all those things would be well worth it. Sadly, it’s 5 days in and I haven’t noticed a damn bit of difference. Anyone had any luck with B12 shots? I read somewhere online that it will only help if you have a deficiency of B12, so maybe my B12 levels are A-OK.
This is the third time that I have set my alarm for early in the morning to go work out… and I don’t go. As in, I put on snooze, snuggle into the sheets and revel in the glory of a warm cat curled up at my feet, a sweetly snoring husband by my side and soft rays of light streaming in through the blinds. Since we upgraded our bed last year to an extra plush cal-king, this bed is like my kryptonite. I’m back to working out at night which is fine, but I really want to give AM exercise a try to see if it helps boost my energy. Anybody got any tips?
I got a new scale! The kind folks at EatSmart are genius and somehow knew that I’m tracking my daily weigh-ins in a shabby little notebook, and they sent me the awesome EatSmart Precision Tracker Digital Scale to review. It actually tracks my daily weight and gives a summary of percentage lost and weight lost. I love it so far – watch for a full review tomorrow or Monday.After this week’s maintenance weigh in, I’m happy to report I’m back on a downward trend. I’m committed to coming back here next Tuesday and telling you I’m back on goal!
Tuesday night, Matt and I went to see Rasputina! Rasputina is an awesome lady cello rock band, and they use distortion pedals on their cellos to make this totally awesome, funky, haunting cello rock. It’s not for everyone but it’s awesome. It was fun getting out of the house and being wild and crazy on a Tuesday night. Usually a wild and crazy Tuesday night for us is going to Costco. That’s how married folks roll, kids. (PS – we bought Halloween candy at Costco and I purposely got candy I don’t like so I stay out of it. The bag is sitting untouched by our book shelf. Maybe I’m getting the hang of this whole healthy livin’ thing! The old Alyssa would have bought the mega size bag of deliciousness and cracked into it weeks before Halloween… and then the kiddies would have gotten stuck with whatever lame candy was left on the grocery store shelves. Womp womp.)
That’s all I got! I hope you’re having a fabulous Thursday – and also, follow me on instagram @lyssacurran. It’s my new fav social platform!
