Was it just me or did this week Drag? With a capital D.
I have been in a terrible, no good, very bad mood. I haven't been sleeping well. I've been feeling sorry for myself. I have just been plain ill. I know what is causing it. No exercise. I haven't moved my rump in a week and a half. I am dying for a good sweat session.
Last Sunday, I was feeling really good. My back felt great and I woke up feeling energized. Monday was the same way.
I'm on the road to recovery... finally!
So on Sunday, I went grocery shopping and it felt great to get out and walk around. On Monday, I did light cleaning and cleaned the bathrooms. On Tuesday, I woke up feeling sore and achy in my back. I did too much.
Today I feel the same. Achy, sore, tender back. I was really hoping to get on the treadmill this week but I don't know if that's going to happen. I might try on Friday. It all depends on how the next couple of days go. I just can't believe that this happened right in the middle of this journey. Nothing like a big bump in the road like a broken back bone...
Despite all that I have been doing relatively well eating. For the most part I've been sticking to the plan. The worst part is at nap time when I'm feeling sorry for myself and I go get cookies.
Why did I buy those damn things? Its the only junk food in my house... and I can't stop eating them. I have a problem.
Starting weight: 230.4
Last Week: 214.6
Down 16.8 in 10 weeks.
-1 pound! SAY WHAT?? I know. I am literally shocked.
I really hope I'm not losing all the muscle I had gained.
I am feeling better about my eating choices
other than the cookies and know that once I can start exercising again that it's going to be amazing. I just am starting to feel flabby and gross. When I'm exercising I feel unstoppable. I am good at it. I love the way it makes me feel when my legs are shaky and sweat is pouring off my head. I miss it.
BUT, I am SO proud of my skinny husband! Holy cow ya'll. He's lost almost 30 pounds!! He is like a machine! Every night when he gets home from work he gets himself and Hazel ready and they go to the gym. He is eating so great and I could not be more proud of him. He's like a new person! I can't get over how good he looks. ;) We have done this weight loss journey before. This is not our first rodeo. But neither of us have ever seen this kind of progress. I can't wait to post both of our before and after pictures! :)
In other news, I have decided to run a half marathon in August! Erin Nelms posted that she wanted to do it & of course I jumped on the bandwagon. Any other Georgia girls out there want to join us? It will be in Roswell, it's called "The Alien Half" because its run at 7 P.M. and you get a glow in the dark shirt! Count me in! I am so excited and it's supposed to be a flat course! Compared to the last one I ran in downtown
holyhillville ATL I think it will be awesome! Plus I don't have to wait up early! Score! If anyone else wants to come and run with us it's August 17, email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you the link! I can't wait to get my back healed so I can start training!
