I started the Year of the Viking strong. Sunday, I did Twirly Tuff. Tuesday, I had pilates reformer and taught two classes at Twirly Girls. Last night, I had class at Twirly Girls. This morning, I had pilates reformer. Saturday, I have Twirly Tuff plus pole class at Twirly Girls. Sunday is yoga day. My Primal Blue Print 21 Day Total Body Transformation workbook showed up today. Yeah, I'm a bit nervous about being on a "diet." But I'm not calling it a diet. I'm calling it "eating like a regular person."
In case I needed any additional motivation, I had an appointment with my dermatologist today to see how the Humira is working for my psoriasis. I mean, my skin is better but it should be almost completely clear by now. I brought up my weight gain as a possible reason that I had such a bad psoriasis flare up in the first place. He didn't really address that but he did mention that the medication (which is a shot I give myself) isn't doled out based on weight so the heavier I am, the less the medication works since it has to cover more territory. He did mention going up another step if we aren't happy with the results in another three months (Humira is already the second step up...I started with Enbrel). However, this other medication only has a couple of years of research on it and I'm not sure I want to be a guinea pig. I think losing weight and letting my skin clear on its own is a better idea.
So I found my motivation. And it was in me the entire time (or, it was in my phone at least). I am looking forward to the help I'm going to be getting from people like Doug, Bel, Rita, Dave, Rob, Jessica and John, but I know that at the end of the day, the only person who can make this happen is....ME!
