So, per one of my recent posts, I had a blah day and just NEEDED to get to the gym ASAP. And that I did. My goal was one hour on the elliptical, which felt pretty good to accomplish I must say. But, the next day, my “bad” knee, which hadn’t been giving me any trouble after the gym, started nagging at me. It didn’t like the stairs, mornings, or sitting.
Unfortunately, my body is not perfect. I have scars, wounds, bumps, bruises and a partial knee (missing some meniscus and ACL). But, my goal is still there and so I just have to find a way to work past these little set backs.
On the bright side, my boyfriend (you heard me) said I look smaller. He can tell I’ve lost weight. I have to say it’s cool to have grazed this topic with him. I’m not the kind of girl to list everything I had to eat that day, or obsess about calories and carbs to a guy. He knows I’m trying to lose weight, and supports me. He found the blog while doing an extensive reading of my Facebook posts going wayyyyyy back, apparently (what a stalker, that one). He hasn’t read it yet, because he wants to get to know me in person. Sweet, right?
So, workouts I have one down. Calorie counting days are at zero, but my portion control is strong. I play tennis tomorrow. And not to make excuses, but I can’t get too sweaty today or tomorrow because I had my hair colored Monday and I’m a strong believer that if you get dyed or toned, you should wait at least 48 hours to wash your hair (not critical if you’re going blonde/lighter).
This will be another stressful week at the office, but I’m not going to let it set me back this time.
And hopefully by my Friday weigh-in, I will have come down to the low 240s once again. Sigh…
