I have only missed one day of working out in the last 15 days. The cool thing is that I have actually found out that there are things I couldn't do before my knee surgery. Getting on the treadmill took guts, but once I did, let me tell you, I remembered why I loved running. The truth is that I can't run, because of the artificial knees, but it was down right amazing to get the incline up there and actually be able to get a real sweat on.
I am not a perfect angel by any means. I am doing this challenge on the Slowest Loser team. The problem is that I have not yet let my husband know that I am doing a challenge. The challenge is that I am not supposed to eat anything after 8:00. The challenge with the challenge comes when my sweet husband pops some popcorn and brings me a bowl at 9:00.....Did I tell him that I am doing a challenge???- no....Did I eat the popcorn???-yes....
So, the fact is that I can't manage doing this challenge alone. The only way I can succeed at the challenge, is to actually enlist Don in the challenge. I know that if I actually told him that I was on a SP challenge, he would not tempt me. I can't blame him for wanting to snack.
The strategy today is to actually tell Don, so that I can succeed for the last 3 days of the challenge. I knew this would not be easy, but I made it even harder by not giving Don a chance to support me in this.
