Day 99 - Body dyslexia, weight update and "getting fit is pricey!" - thank you MasterCard!

Let me start with the good.

The Good

Weight: 242.6 lbs

The Bad (for my financial situation)

I am taking Vitamin D, B12 sublinguals, flaxseed powder already and today I bought:
  • 300 g of Ultimate High Alpha Whey Protein
  • 500 ml of Nutra Sea Omega 3 liquid
  • 20 ml of Bach Rescue Remedy drops
add the tax and those 3 items were a hefty $103 and change.

The boot camp is $140.

The naturopath is sliding scale based on income (thank the universe!) but getting healthy is not only a toll on the body but on my Mastercard.

But,:  "Getting healthy and losing weight for life -- PRICELESS."

And now,

The Ugly.

I have body dyslexia.  I don't actually know if there is such a thing but as a completely uncoordinated likelong klutz, I am claiming this designation.

When exercising, I got completely lost with directions on right and left and opposites.  This is why I have never taken dance lessons and why work out videos make me swear.

It's all very confusing and I quickly get overwhelmed, frustrated and lost.  As a kid I was even bad with those clapping games like "Miss Sue" et cetera.

This was why I loved being in the goth/alternative scene.  The clothes and music was fantastic and you could be yourself..  I love dancing when it's unstructured because I can't learn choreography and I can express myself well with my body.

Getting healthy will allow me to do that again.


  1. Hey, Jayne!
    Well, I know I don't have to tell you that I know how you feel on this topic. I do want to ask you though, when you're exercising, is your trainer facing you or facing away from you? I have this theory that people like you and I need to be looking at our trainer's backs. I don't know why they all don't do that already!

  2. She was facing the class.

    You know, I did wonder that myself, if it would have been easier if she was the other direction. But then, she needs to watch us to help us improve our movements..

  3. I am somewhat the same way with doing classes.. I find that if you only pay attention to one thing at a time, it works better.. at least for me..

    Good luck with the body dyslexia.. I hope you get it under control.. :)
