A thought. Sometimes when you are told things, they are just thoughts that you put into your back pocket till you realize that you are now at the point of your live where you can apply it where it makes sense.
My assertive over planning is my Anxiety acting up. I been doing this since I was young, when people told me that planning is ok and normal, it was normalized to me exp now I realize mine is acessive compared to what a health “normalized” planning is.
Overplanning can be a side effect of an anxiety disorder that developed in early life. This need for control is often a survival mechanism for those who had unstable childhoods. Although this behavior may have served its purpose in the past, overplanning can be detrimental in adulthood.
There are different types of workouts that will work with PCOS. I used to be pyhically active but I wasn’t doing the type of workouts that works with PCOS, was always confused why my body wasn’t responding to it.
Pilates: Mat + Reformer Mat Pilates: I have an online Mat Pilates class but I realize I don’t do well with online classes Reformer Pilates: I found some group classes that I want to try. I’m looking for easy/beginners/light classes till my body gets stronger.
and a pandemic started. I was doing good at sticking to 230pd range for the past few years till the past 6 months and I gained back to 250pd. I know that I have to control my PCOS. It’s confusing bc there is an overwhelming about of information and misinformation out there. Also there had to be food that I will stick to eating long term.
This blog is going to track me getting my life back on track since the pandemic changed things.
Things to work on: Control my PCOS to lose weight. Get my body back into shape Learn coding or something to work my mind.

I really didn’t update it because I found it so easy once I have my clothing and items pulled. I used less then 33 pieces and I just had to remember to plan when to do my laundry or I would be out of clothing. At the end, I really don’t need that much clothing but I’m also too fat to wear clothing I think is cute.
My own health still isn’t statable but the warmer weather was helping till the Santa Ana Winds kicked in today…baby steps. I’ve been going to mat pilates twice a week, and recently add in 2 dance classes per week. It’s sorta of pushing my ankle, so I might back it down to one dance class a week. I need to lose the 30+ pounds since my ankle surgery. So that’s my next goal for the next 90 days to drop 10-15 pounds.
It’s been a year and half since I decide to go back to school. Part of me is freaking out that I’m not learning fast enough but I feel inspired when I’m in class, so I know it’s the right step. I have anther year and half left. Not going to cry if I don’t finish it.
I’m using less then my allowance of clothing and items according to the project. I swamp out a pair of jeans I never used for sweats due to the weather. When my health gets better, I can start getting rid of clothing and stuff that I really don’t need. Even if I lose the weight, I’ll get new clothing.
Create new habits:
Two hours daily routine
30 min: Clean house + Donate/Get rid of stuff.
15 min each: Draw + Work on Blog/Journal + Ankle rehab + Self Care.
I did good in Jan but failed in Feb once my classes all started. I bite off more then I can chew with all my classes and my health issues flaring up. Need to sit down and evaluate my game plan.
This month, I was going to had on meal planing to start eating healthier. My health issues flared up majorly. I wasn’t able to do much but get what I need to get done and rest. I’m going to clean out my freezer and start looking into making fz foods that I can pre prep for the slow cooker. That way if I get sick again, I can just dump it into the crockpot and rest.
I started with one class of mat pilates per week for Jan. I’m upping it to two in feb and adding in an hour of dance class starting next week. March: Per week: Mat Pilates 3x, Dance Class 2x
