Since my third baby was born my body has been in revolt. It has been revolting against it's current state and causing me all kinds of problems that I had never even imagined.
Truly, when I entered into puberty and the whole menstration cycle began, it kind of began without any pomp or circumstance. I didn't have abdominal cramping, I didn't feel sick, I was hardly moody at all. I got a tiny leg cramp, I thought it was from gym class, so I went to the washroom and was disgusted and excited at the same time.
But that's how most of my periods worked. They were like clockwork, I was a full 28 day cycle and the only thing that threw me off that cycle was pregnancies. But even pregnancies weren't so bad until the birth of my third child.
Now I am not blaming my third baby, but I think it's more than coincidental that my body start rejecting the natural state of things at the same time my periods began after nursing this cutie!
May 30 we had our last appointment for awhile, as now we are just waiting for genetic testing to see what turns up and what we will need to do from there. Our Genetics testing took place at the Stollery Children's hospital in Edmonton.
Now my first impression of trying to find the Stollery is that it is VERY DIFFICULT! Google maps doesn't take you to the entrance, and when you try to walk to find the entrance, at least for us, we ended up going in a restricted area that did not get us to where we needed to go. We were in the general location that we needed to be, but for all intensive purpose we were lost.
Now my first impression of the staff that work at the multitude of hospitals in this location, because there are many, many hospitals that operate out of this location, the Stollery is only one of them, is that they are AMAZING! In the restricted area we ran into a gentleman who took us through the Staff only area to the main hub and walked us right up to one of the Stoller…
I'm actually going to write about this blog before I update all my summer blogs, I just feel like for my success I need to be writing my blog entries on this challenge in a timely manner as it will increase my accountability, and it will hopefully get me back into the habit of writing.
So after leaving you all in the dark, unless you follow me on other social media platforms, of what happened this summer here's a look at what I am going to be doing for the next 12 weeks.
My very good friend Tamara joined Fit Body Boot Camp around 8 months ago, and she's had amazing results, her husband got on board as well and has seen a huge change, he doesn't work out at the gym but does his own workouts at home. Men don't seem to have the same problems with losing weight that women experience, biology sometimes does not work in our favour ladies.
I considered joining a couple times, but the only time I have been successful, like really successful at losing weight I had done it …
