A lot to blog about tonight, so brace yourself lol.
First... the uh wtf moment for me. My husband weighed himself this morning. He's lost 3.4 lbs since Tuesday (which is great cause he gained at his last one). So I went on the scale after him just as an "oh this isn't gonna be a big deal thing" since I had checked my progress the day before (and lost .2 lbs making it a total of 9 lbs lost since July).
Well here's the thing. The scale said that I had lost and additional 4 lbs! Is that even possible?! 4 lbs in a 24 hour period? I mean sure, the last week I've done more activity than I ever have in like 3 years but come on!
I don't even know if I should be celebrating, or telling people cause omg this is throwing me off. lol but I figured, given this and the fact that it's been a little over 2 months of working on this I would do a comparison photos. I don't see a difference really. Just my hair lol
Speaking of my husband... You know how on Friday we both met with trainers to asses and make a plan for fitness? Well we were both feeling the "burn" in forms of aches and pains after words. Even this morning when I got up for water aerobics I felt it in my back. But once I got moving the pain was gone. My husband on the other hand, he's still hurting. Mainly in his legs and arms and I've already told him to stop being a baby (cause it was getting on my nerves - i know, bad wifey), that he used muscles that he hasn't used in years and that Nate had just woken him body up again.
But now I'm worried that maybe he pushed to hard with Nate? I don't know. I am worried though. I'll keep you updated and see if he feels better tomorrow.
Today, was my second water aerobics class. Debbie, the Saturday instructor, was completely different in her teaching style as opposed to Peter Paul's style. Debbie is more into getting down and working against the water, where as Peter Paul wants you to use the tools (weights/noodles) as aids. Debbie likes to do kick boxing in the water. Peter Paul wants us to dance with Jennifer Lopez.
Either way, again I could feel the work out in my knees. So after class, I relaxed in the spa letting the hot water ease my knee. Well Debbie came into the spa with me and started talking to me about her journey.
It took her 4 years to get to the size she is now, and even now she has hit a year long platue because her body is used to doing what she's been doing. She wants to work with me personally at another club site during the week. And she expects me to go into the deep end next week so I have to use the water lol. I want to take her up on her offer but I know right now, with one automobile and one income, we can't fit that in just yet. I'll tell her next time I see her. Which sucks, but maybe we can work on something on Saturday's.
I'm worried. Not about the husband or turning down Debbie's offer, but for myself. See I get emotionally invested in my relationships and I tend to cling. Recently it was brought to my attention that not only do I cling, but I tend to sabotage the previous friendship in light of the "new and exciting" one. So I've been withdrawing myself from certain friends, trying to re-evaluate why I'm their friend etc etc. Well, one of these friends is once again, going through a tough deal over a guy. The reason why I'm worried about myself when talking about her, is that I get so emotional over it that I start to stress. And the stress makes me binge (Hi, I'm Kristin and I'm an emotional eater) and physically ill. Then you add in the fact that I'm trying to live healthier and queue purging after binging.
I don't want this chain of events to happen, yet I don't want her to think that I don't care about her because I'm avoiding her and the drama that is surrounding her at the moment.
When I tried to talk to my husband about it, he gave me the disappointing look that he does when he knows I'm going to do something stupid. But which part is stupid?
I'm just worried cause I know what stress can do to be and I don't want to get to that point. But I also don't want to lose my friend.
*sighs* I'll just have to think it over.
Peace & love
