Ok, so maybe this IS an accountability blog . . .

. . . since it is an update of my last one. I did P90X all week - minus all the jumping. I modified everything and only went to the point of pain with my knees. I am dismayed with my loss of strength yet I know that muscle-memory will kick in with my consistency. Even with all my delicate movements, my knees are swollen and keeping me awake at night again. Not sure what my plan is from here.

My war with soda continues. This is not one of my strong times. Last year I had a stock of 8 12-packs of DP in my garage for over 6 months, but I am not strong enough to do that now. I was trying to cut back until it was cut out - yeah right. I can't even ration myself to one 2-liter a day. There is not a single ounce of DP within my reach. I would have to physically go to the store - which DH has offered to do. If it is here, I am drinking it.

Last week was an emotional roller coaster and wrecked havoc on my eating. Today I am just tired -

    Hey LR! sorry things are rough right now, busy as heck with your son/college/etc. glad that you are making some YOU time though. and that you have been able to modify your fitness to reduce the strain on your knees. bummer that they are still hurting though. i wonder if stress could be helping the pain along?
    as for the DP, if i have soda in the house, i will drink it. same with ice cream. so i try not to keep it around. that way if i want some, i have to ride my bike or run to the store to get it. ya, i am the girl with the diet soda in one hand and an ice cream in the other!!

    Hope your coming week is WONDERFUL!!

    Sorry to hear that your knees continue to give you trouble. I see the orthopedic doc on Thursday for my MRI results. My knee is better, but I'm not running at all, and doing other things lightly. It'll be interesting to see what he has to say.

    Maybe try the accountability blog daily with your pop withdrawal. I find that I think twice before eating something that I know I will have to report in my blog. Just a thought.

    Great job on your consistency with the P90X.

    Hey Leanne...I also have to modify the jumping and "knee stuff" in general. I discovered I had knees last spring when I did Jillian's ripped in 30 and attempted to keep up only to have my knees talking back loudly one morning! Way to go with the DP, and keeping it out of the house. What do you drink instead? I can relate to the crazy week.If old age doesn't get me first, I know my kids will...LOL! Let's just say senioritis is alive and well at our house! School can't end quick enough. Did you ever find the assignment? I'm sending peace and best wishes for the upcoming week....somethings gotta give! emoticon
