Xanax, Weight Gain, and Other Thoughts

Hey there and Happy Wednesday! How are you doing today?

Long time, no post … I was officially diagnosed with a panic disorder, so that explains a ton. Damn diagnoses, you just keep coming and coming. It’s interesting, I’ve known that I’ve had something going on with my panic attacks for some time now, but it’s nice to finally have a diagnosis of a panic disorder. I’m now on Xanax, which has taken some getting used to … I haven’t felt like working out or anything like that for about two weeks now, but I’m getting back in the game slowly but surely.

Luke and I were fortunate enough to switch gyms – we’re no longer going to Planet Fitness but rather Verdure, a swanky gym in our apartment complex. We LOVE it.

My goal weight is a muscular 135 lbs – I’m currently at 122.4 lbs, so I have a ways to go, but I’m determined.

Breakfast

Breakfast was three scrambled eggs with ham and cheddar cheese with a piece of whole wheat toast, butter, and jam. YUM! Tons of protein here, so it was very filling! (I didn’t need a snack all morning.) Coffee to drink.

Lunch

I first had an Envy apple with cinnamon around 11:40 …

… and then I had some roasted chicken breast with broccoli – honey mustard dressing on the side for dipping.

Workout

Our workout didn’t happen today – Luke is nursing a shoulder, and I was feeling drugged out from Xanax. Oh well, there’s always tomorrow (or the next day, because I have an appointment tomorrow).

Dinner

I started off with some roasted carrots and broccoli with hummus and Sriracha ranch …

… and the I had a Siggi’s yogurt with a banana, honey, and crunchy peanut butter.

Ok, that’s my spiel for today! 🙂
