Yeah, I know everyone is experiencing unseasonably cold weather, but just for one day, I'd like temps in the positive numbers. I think today is gonna be the day!! I saw a positive 3º when I woke up this morning, and if it gets up to 8º I'm headed out of doors!!! That, and more snow is on the way, and our veggie supply is sadly depleted.
Oh yeah!! Today was Weigh In Wednesday, lest I forget. I had a 6.8# loss!!! I know a good portion of that was the soccer ball sized knot of water around my knee, but hey, a loss is a loss. I'm also quite certain that some of that loss was a result of shivering uncontrollably for 5 days in this cold spell. Kinda like those really old time "reducing" machines that had the belt that went around your waist and shook you silly. It's been so cold, I've actually had to wear socks.
As one might expect, my food had been much better this last week or so. Giving myself those extra few days to stay on the Wed. weigh in schedule probably didn't hurt, either. And color me shocked.....journaling my foods has actually helped. Can't believe I didn't believe that. I AM NOT as smart as I think I am....in that department, anyway. :) My ego is totally in tact in all other areas!!
Exercise is coming along slowly. I can't quite get a program put together that really feels good. I am "auditioning" several combinations right now. I've given thought to going back to my trainer, but with only one leg that works properly, I don't think I'd be getting the full use of his expertise or my money. It's still a possibility, tho'. I might just drop in and ask for some suggestions as to what I might be able to do without risking more damage to the knee. My fear is that he'll talk me into coming back, paying the ridiculous fee, and then I'd end up being able to do only half of the routine. Sounds like I'm talking myself out of this, doesn't it? For the time being, I'll keep plugging along with what I'm doing. I still subscribe to the theory that any movement is better than none.
