I've gained a little of the weight that I lost on Medifast, but not much. I'm now sticking strictly to my CRON-ie lifestyle again. I flipped through my CR books (The CR Way, The Anti-aging Diet, and The Longevity Diet), and I'm going to go with 1800 calories. This is for a woman 31-50 who's moderately active. I've been exercising 5 days a week, 2 days interval cardio/strength/abs, and 3 days running. I also hope to get back to my boxing soon. It's just tough with school on the days I used to go in the mornings, and so I have to try to see if I can drag my arse out the door with two kids for a 5pm boxing workout a few times a week. I really miss it.
Speaking of school, it's going very well. I'm taking Bio 1, western civ 1, precalculus 1, and world regional geography. The geography and precal are online, the other two are on campus. I feel great. I just took my first western civ test, 3 essay questions and 55 multiple choice, and I think I got an A, or at the very least a B. It went better than I thought it was going to.
I also did something very drastic to my appearance. I used the buzzer set to 1/2 inch, and buzzed all my hair off. I love it, my honey loves it, and it gets lots of compliments so far. It's very very low maintenance! Like as in no maintenance. I do regularly wear earrings now and makeup to feminize it a little. Just little diamond princess cut studs and a little eyeshadow and mascara. But when I wear a tank top or tube top, I look very interesting with all my tattoos showing and the hair. Did I mention I loved the movie Tank Girl when I was a girl???
My littlest boy started school in January. He loves it. He goes for 3 hours 5 days a week. The bus comes right to the door and drops him right off at the driveway. Very convenient. He did, however, catch RSV and end up hospitalized for two days due to germ-infested classmates. Then, when he went back, he was fine for a few days, then was sick again. Took him to the doc and the verdict was bronchitis. So he missed another week of school. I'm not liking the whole illness deal that came along with school. I'm hoping once the weather breaks he'll do better. He's already at a disadvantage with his lungs due to prematurity.
Well, that's about it for the update. I will be posting regularly again. Promise. If anyone's still out there reading. I'll just pretend that I have tons of adoring blogland fans:)
