When last I spoke to The Perfect Child she was on her way to the gym, to give it her all. As it turns out, she may not have to work as hard as I had planned! Seems that the "Two a Days" I've been putting in have had an adverse effect on my knee. (The "real" one.) It is quite swollen this morning, so I'm resting it today.....kinda. I'm playing golf later this morning. If I have to chose between cardio and golf, golf will win out every single time. Sorry, Cardio Gods.
Now to the real "meat" of this blog....if there is such a thing. Today was Weigh In Wednesday, as many of you already know. In spite of myself, I posted a 1.8# loss this week. Imagine my surprise!! Alert the media, I lost more than an ounce or two. YAY!!! That makes my total loss 14.4 pounds. Slow but steady, I guess. Everyone says that any number with a minus sign in front of it is a good thing, so I'm quite pleased. I will not, however, take my loss as a sign that I can err and still come out smellin' like a rose. I need to stay focused. I have little doubt that the excess cardio played a part in this loss, but I'm happy as can be.
Off to the Doc tomorrow morning to get the blood work done. I'm anxious to see if my "stats" have improved at all. My last visit, the cholesterol was way down, so I'm hoping to see that again. Blood pressure has remained just fine and dandy for several years now, so I'm not overly concerned about that. My liver panel has changed a bit since going on a new cholesterol med, so I'm hopeful that has improved, since the Dr. told me exercise should help level that out and improve the number a bit. I'd hate to think my liver is rebelling against me at this late stage.
Now, as I sign off, picture an old, fat, lazy, cranky broad skipping around the house, singing the "I lost 1.8#" song of joy. :) That would be me. :)
