Tmi scroll on past

It’s been a month since I went to the ER, and about 6 weeks since I started having this allergy attack on my skin or whatever it is. I finally have an appointment to see a doctor Wednesday next week. Yay! Took long enough!

Very tmi : I’m about 2 weeks late. I think because of my stress levels I run on a 35-55 day cycle. That in itself is stressful.

Aside from that, I’ve been scratching my skin to the point of severe bruising and bleeding in my sleep because of my skin allergy issue. Tired of this. Ready to see a doctor!

I’ve had this terrible skin reaction/allergy the last month caused by who knows what and it’s left some really bad patches of bumps and redness and it is SO ITCHY. But I think itching spreads the rash and I’m afraid to scratch ANY itch now.

I went to my doctor about it probably 4 weeks ago. She put me on a steroid which at first helped but then caused a terrible trigger for my stomach condition and I had to go to the ER and stop the steroid. So now I’m rashy and itchy with a stomach problem and my doctor doesn’t have any open slots to see me. :(

I scratch myself bloody in my sleep because it’s the only time I relent to the itchiness. And so sometimes I take sleep medicine to knock myself out and not scratch. Sigh.

TW mentions : weight, eating disorders

I’m finally getting back into the swing of exercising regularly and I am wondering if I need a professional in order to help me lose weight. Though my self esteem is worlds better than it was, my body is not at a healthy weight for my frame, and my mobility is compromised because of that.

I would also like to wear a bikini someday. And those cute two-piece crop top outfits! And running shorts without my thighs chafing/the shorts rolling up while I run/the waistband rolling under my tummy.

I think I am very good at making my own plans and telling myself how often I should eat, exercise, but it’s still coming from a place of someone with disordered thoughts around eating. I could really use someone to guide me in a healthy way instead of me just guessing. I think I’ll take advantage of the health consultation offered at my gym this week.

I did 4 push-ups tonight and that’s pretty okay at least! :) Feeling good about my body and my health the last couple of days, so now I just need to get some help making a plan to get my body to a better place.

I know this is a different kind of tattoo to post, but they are so amazingly done and the artist is incredibly talented. I couldn’t be happier!I got my eyebrows tattooed using the feathered brow technique by artist Shaughnessy Keely. @Shaughnessy on IG! Check out her amazing work! 

I think about this a lot!

It feels so good to feel so healthy lately.

Today I did the lateral pull down machine at 80 pounds. The most I could ever do ever was 65 pounds. I’m so stoked! And I did a bunch of assisted pull-ups and felt like I was really trying.

I’ve gained about 40 pounds in the last 5 years, and though I do feel beautiful part of the time, I’m feeling like this is the right time to put my health first and improve my strength/flexibility/mobility/endurance.

I feel so happy, so healthy. Time to drink more water!!

Feeling healthy

I got back from my honeymoon two weeks ago, and it was the best time ever. I saw a manatee up close and ate amazing seafood and drank wine by the pool.

Now that I’m back, I’ve been working to get my fitness back in check and watch my habits. I’m really determined to lose this office/car/couch/beer weight and become a healthier person. I’ve been exercising 5x a week and eating the nutrients my body needs. No restricting, no binging. My husband has been super supportive and we’ve been cooking tons of healthy meals together! I’m tracking my water intake and getting lots more sleep. I’m doing very very well at work (two promotions in 7 months holla) and have been making art.

My life is incredible, and I want to spend my years preparing to start a family as a healthy woman. I want to be able to run and jump with my kids and lift heavy stuff when I need to. I love my lazy creative time drawing in front of the tv, but I also love riding my bike and walking through the neighborhood. I actually like eating salads now, but I also like good craft beers on the weekends. All good things, a good balance.

Anyway, I just want to share my optimism and make a checkpoint in my journey towards A Healthier Allison.

TBH i think matching sets are merely an option. I like combining mine!!! Look at these cute color combos. The yellow bra — Huit — is one of the most comfy bras ever. I love the fit of Huit stuff, you forget you’re wearing a bra but also when you remember it’s like “Oh damn, I’m perfect, actually.” And Fleur of England — the first set — they always come out with good stuff. And since it’s not just tulle or lace, you don’t have to worry about it ripping. It’s lovely and delicate of course, but not fragile. 

All of these are on sale at Journelle right now for about 30-70% off. Bra 1, Bra 2, Briefs 1, Briefs 2.

I just revisited the sale and I think they added a lot more stuff to it? And the sets are all cheaper now too. UwU
