Well you all know that I bowed out of Brad’s 5K in 100 days and he was very kind about it. He even has invited me to join the next group, if and when he starts one up. So today I went back to my C25K training.
My calories are better this past week. Not perfect but I took Mir’s suggestion and as I’m fixing the kids their meals I’m working hard on at least getting part of mine done. It’s not simple but with lots of thought it’s happening.
I am doing very well with my floor exercises. In fact the kids help me count and one of my little ones can now watch the second hand and know when a minute passes. I do however really, really miss working out at the gym. That sounds so weird from a woman who hated just walking to the mail box, wouldn’t lift a weight if she had too, who wouldn’t run, jog, bike or anything. I really miss it.
I have some NSV I have thought of this past week. I still am enjoying sitting and holding my leg and still breathing. I love putting lotion on my legs and being able to reach all of them. Trimming my toenails. Folding my shorts and remembering I use to fold my old ones in half and thought there were so huge and now opened wide it’s … well feels so nice. Ribs, collar bone, butt bones…things I’ve haven’t seen or felt in so many years and this year I can feel them and see them. Out walking my 6’4” son and husband with my itty bitty short legs, not always mind you but lots more then it use to be. Being able to bend over, lay bricks and breath. Swimming in a swimsuit and not feeling like a beached whale. Yep, loving the NSV.
I sent my weight into Allan for phase 6, a bit late today, noon my time but late his. 169.9. Not great but not back into the 170’s and hopefully never to be there again. My weight fluxes from 167-169, back and forth all week. Of course on the day to report it’s up even a bit more. But a big deal for me is 60 lbs lost now. I’ll take it, as slow as it’s coming off I’ll still take it.
So there you have it, my update. Not perfect, so very slow but excellent for me and really that is what counts. Lose it, keep it off, get healthy and enjoy life. I can do this, I can keep doing this, I WILL!!!!
Take care my friends. God Bless you all!!
