Last night I couldn't get to sleep and my left shoulder was throbbing. I know me. I'm at high risk for overeating when I am tired. So between needing to take it easy on the shoulder, probably getting less exercise than usual, and my tendency to overindulge when tired, I need to be very careful today.
A reason that I'm extra concerned is that recently I've gone over my calorie range too many times. Part of the way I have just about maintained is that I have consistently done more exercise than the 60 minutes 6 times a week that I have committed to do. According to the fitness seminar I took Tuesday, 60 minutes 6 times a week is probably the maximum I should be doing. I should be cutting back calories to maintain. Injury is a risk of over exercising and my shoulder may be an example -- although that isn't from too much cardio, it's probably too much weight or poor form on upper body machines.
Anyway, I'm going to be careful today, let my shoulder rest, and try really hard these next couple weeks to re-establish a habit of smart portion control and evening eating.
