"Only" One Pound This Week
Sunday, July 12, 2020
It has been a challenging week. I did not walk around the "dead" mall this week - too hot! I started the week doing my kettlebells. About midweek, I had the weirdest pain in my back and right hip. I've never felt that before and I've been taking it easy, reluctantly. That has meant that I was extra careful with my food consumption. The swelling in my left foot has come down, so that's good.
I am behind in my goals as of today. I lost "only" one pound this week. My goal is 1.5 a week.
What's different? I have not chosen to throw in the towel and give up. This has made me metaphysically grit my teeth. I am still going to make my goal! Let me say that again. I am still going to make my goal!
It will take longer, but, realistically, at my age, with my physical challenges and sedentary lifestyle (working on that), this is no slam-dunk. There is no "easy" button. It will take longer than I want it to, but I am still going to reach my goal.
I did exactly one plank today and I did it better than any I have ever done. I have not even tried to do one in eons, but, I did one! Yay, me! I showed BF how to do bicycle crunches. Neither of us can do them yet, but, as I told him, we have something to work towards.
The SparkPeople exercise library is a great resource for me! I am still in the beginner section and I am OK with that.
My goal for this week: get up earlier and get some exercise in before I start working. SO grateful I am still working from home. Not having the commute gives me almost 3 hours a day!
Have a great week, everyone! Stay hydrated, stay safe and healthy!
