After 3 weeks, I lost another pound.
I didn't let the little plateau bother me. I know I am losing weight and changing my body and my health. It is just slower now. That's ok! Patience is a virtue I am learning.
We had a really quiet weekend at the cabin. It was rainy and cloudy so I only walked one day. I did read 3 books!
I just realized I forgot to add my 9 month Sparkaversary icon so I added it today along with changing my ticker.
The 5k race is Saturday and I am a little nervous, but I am going to use that fear to encourage and motivate me. I am following a 5k training guide so this week I tone my exercise down and just do 30 min walks. I hope my tendonitis doesn't flare up. I found out that what I have is called Ilio Tibial Band Friction Syndrome and I found some stretching exercises that really help. It's good to know what I was dealing with. I asked one of the MD's at work about my symptoms. She is a marathoner and has lots of exprience. She knew just what I was talking about and gave me the name. I looked up the syndrome and found the exercises. I thought I was going to have to go to PT and pay a bunch, but these exercises seem to be doing the trick!
