It has been awhile since I've blogged.
I've stopped logging ALL food and ALL exercise. I'm taking this time to see how I do without logging. I lost the majority of my weight not logging anything and I feel like I need to get back to that point. I'm too obsessive to log food and exercise for the rest of my life. I seem to be doing just fine without the logging.
I've been nursing some kind of weird muscular/nerve issues in my lower spine. After nearly a week of issues, it seems to be better. Which is relief. Too bad the downside of relief is a nice little gain on the scale due to the pain medications I've been taking. I know it is water retention. I know it is temporary. I know that within a week or so of stopping the meds, the weight will drop right back off. I'm not worried about it, but I have to tell you that seeing 150lbs on the scale sucks no matter how you look at it.
I'm still only able to handle 1 day at the gym. When I try and go more often, I end up in pain and have to stop. I feel like 1 day at the gym is kind of a waste of my time, but I also know that I can't and won't make progress without continuing to go. My goal is to get myself back up 3 days, but I would be happy with only 2. I work 4 days a week (3 of those days are my long days) and if I go to the gym 2 days a week, that means my body gets one day ''off". Usually my day "off" is the day I clean. So, I am active each and everyday, even if they aren't hardcore workouts.
I got a free tshirt from my gym for referring someone to them and having them sign up with them. I picked a size medium and IT FITS! I put it on, put on my new size 10 jeans and when I look in the mirror? Well, I like what I see. I actually feel... happy. And content. And proud of myself.
I feel like being able to write that last paragraph? It is better than winning the lottery!
