Exercise: 2 miles on the treadmill.
Yesterday I weighed myself and I was 190 pounds! 190 pounds!!! HOLY SHIT! That is even higher than my highest weight of 187. A Few factors… I started my period last week for the first time since the end of August. Another is that Super Bowl was on Sunday and I had like 6 or 7 Michelob Ultras. Water retention? Who the hell knows. All I know is that over night I was 5 pounds heavier and that is just not okay!
I walked 5 miles on the treadmill yesterday and I felt great. I felt like I could walk even more, but had a dentist appointment to get to. I felt great and was motivated. This morning I only walked 2 miles. My 4-year-old was in my bed sick since just after 1:00 a.m. and he tossed and turned, had a fever, stuffy nose and his lungs sounded terrible. Naturally I didn’t sleep good. I am just happy that I got myself to the gym and did something. It felt good to be there even though I was tired. My legs feel good and I can feel that the muscles have really gotten a good work out over the last couple of days. That is a good thing. I like to feel it.
I decided on a nice pair of Nike tennis shoes and returned the 2 other pairs this morning that I bought over the past few weeks. I can’t believe that I actually found a pair of tennis shoes that my toes and feet no longer go numb in. I am going to go this weekend and go get another pair exactly the same as these. I am all set in that area for now.
I am hoping to see at least 5 pounds come off over the next two weeks. Yes, yes, yes… it will be done! 🙂
