First, a link to my latest Examiner.com post:
I think I can sum up the way to lose weight in one word: THINK.
Anyway. I've been in a true recovery period this week after having shredded my quads on Sunday and being in a truly pathetic state. It's pathetic when you have to put your hands under you on the toilet seat to even DREAM about getting to a sitting position. LOL.
Glad that's over with! I did a little bit of circle step on Monday, a (very) short run and pilates on Tuesday, and yesterday I stretched, lifted and went to my regular cardio fusion class with only the slightest residual discomfort. Whew!
My swelly belly is still hanging around (because of surgery, my stomach fat is disarticulated from the muscle and fluid collects in the interstitial space between), but it's not been painful. And I'm down 2 pounds, sorta (muscle loss).
The plan for this month is to rest up. So far I've done good with ignoring the invites for all the 5Ks that are going on this month. I am going to do Bike the Cbus on Saturday and even (finally!) bought a bike helmet for the 28-mile urban tour. It's through a pretty bad part of town (and they can call it King-Lincoln or Olde Towne East, but it's still the near East side) so I'm going to have to make friends quickly. The ride will be scenic and totes awesome though.
The other plan for the month - going to the Spark Your Life convention in Cincy! I'm just going down and back, it's not that far a drive. Anyone else?
Hope everyone is Sparking away to get ready for fall. :)
