So, here is a little recap.
I feel great. I am no longer working out because the scale tells me to. I AM working out because it is good for me. Am I getting to the gym 4 times a week. Hell no. Am I working out hard when I do work out? Yes. Today Ben and I went for a run. Instead of stopping at the end of the park (3.5 miles according to my handy Garmin) I kept going. We went 4.2 miles. My left hip is hurting some; I have been working on not crossing my legs as a friend of mine explained the impact that can have. I am listening to her. However, it is damn hard. I always cross my legs! This is a real adjustment.
Anyways, the hip hurt at the beginning of the run, but got better. The first 3 miles were ok, but I really bonked during the last one plus mile. My prerun snack was a piece of white bread and Crofter's jam, but this was apparently not enough!
Anyways, I do feel really great! Each week when Nutrimirror tells me it is time to record my weight, I am doing it based on how I feel, how my clothes are fitting. I am not doing this when I am trying to lose weight. I really do just want to tighten up as best as I can, as well as not feel deprived. I have been quite successful at that! Ben and I go out once a week, I am eating WHOLE eggs a few times a week, I drink, I eat...sometimes all on the same day!
I joke with Ben that I have gained 10 pounds, but we all know that is not true. I went shopping yesterday and today and think I look damn good. I am not saying that because of a huge ego (believe me).
I feel amazing. My energy is good. My skin is glowing.
So far so good!
I like to take pictures when I try on clothes!
I bought this one - SALE!
