Thanks so much for your encouragement. I laughed out loud when you talked about wanting to throw the coffee pot at your hubby!!I've pretty much kept to myself these last couple days cua had I spken, I think someone would throw something at me!! 18 hours ago
Appreciate your note. Here is what I posted at the Team Reflection page:
What a roller-coaster ride for me this challenge. I started out strong and had worked up to a minimum of one hour a day exercise during the break between challenges. Beginning of Week #3, furchild lunged forward unexpectedly and my right knee crashed into a fire hydrant and chronic back problems flared. This was followed by several bouts with kidney stones and meds that cause fluid retention and I ate over calories many days.
Ended challenge with a 2.6# gain BUT this is a partial victory as in the past I would have given into comfort food cravings daily and gained much more.
I will not be participating in the Fall or Winter Challenge as I am going to commit to a 16-week postural therapy program in an effort to drastically reduce my chronic daily pain. The program with involve 2 to 4 hours/day, including commute times.
Best wishes to all of you Tiger Monarchs for continued success in your journey to better health! 4 days ago
