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! 🙂
don’t stress about it, Kathleen. It’s perfectly normal for people’s weights to fluctuate. I think you have the right attitude. I walked half a mile today and i felt super so just keep up the high spirits and you’ll reach your goal weight in no time!
Thank you so much for you kind works and motivation… that is exactly what I need. 🙂
