Just like I said last week. As soon as I get over the ovulation part of my cycle the 2 extra pounds would go away. Now to just get the downward trend to keep going. I have been stuck at this same number for over a month and would love for it to move into the 70's.
Week in evaluation:
Water: getting better. I am still needing to pick it up some since I seem to only drink at work. I need to bridge the habit over to my home life too.
Food: Snacky. I will say that though I am snacky I don't just eat to eat. I grab a little of what I am craving and then put it away. I am getting better at recognizing when I am sated.
Exercises: When I last tried the couch to 5K in the spring I messed up my knee because I am still a bit too heavy for the high impact of it. I had to lay off for a few months but I am ready to get back to it. I am going to play it smart though. I am going to do the program on my elliptical machine and do each week two or more times until I feel that my body (knees) are ready to move on to the next level. After I can complete it on the elliptical I will move it outside. Hopefully by then I will be lighter and it will not be 115 degrees outside. Wish me luck.
Mental: I am still doing well. I am still happy I had this surgery and I am blessed that I have a huge support group to keep me motivated.
This week was a good one for me. I feel like I did what I needed too and I am in control. Let's just hope it stays great.
