I Love Working Out in the Morning

I got up at 4:30 a.m. and went to the gym. I seriously overloaded on lower body lifts - squats, leg press machine (did 90lbs more than previous best), etc. When I felt like I was going to fall down, I got on the elliptical and did cardio for 20 minutes.

I feel great now. The phrase "make this your best day possible"comes to my mind now. This is the kind of start to my day I want every day. Screw working out at night.
1. When I plan to workout at night, it just doesn't get done sometimes. Things come up. I'm in school. I work full time. I have a household to maintain. When I do it first thing, I control it. Something would literally have to come up overnight to make it not happen.
2. I feel better when I workout in the morning. I just do! More energy, better focus.
3. I have a sense of accomplishment to start the day.

Oh, for those keeping track, I was 312 on July 28, 2008. I now weigh 273. That's 39lbs gone. 33 more to go before I do a reevaluation.

No "Extra Stuff"

The doctors say no extra stuff... we're back to just the thyroid tests. Praise God!

"Their God is Their Stomach"

Phillipians 3.19 - "Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach"...

That's out of context, but that phrase stuck out at me like a fly on a projector.

The Election

I'm completely disgusted with the election. How did we get two democrats running against each other?

Doctor is not being encouraging

Yeah... the doctor is not being encouraging right now with what he's saying. I have to wait for the test results. There is a strong chance there is more going on than just a thyroid.

Apparently, my thyroid is being bad. Please pray for me!

I had some blood work done around September 15. Today, I received a phone call from the doctor. They want to do more blood work because my thyroid function is abnormal, especially compared to past tests they've done. It was a brief conversation that I had to end early. As such, I'm not sure if my function is low, or high.

I'll keep this updated. Please keep me in your prayers!
