I could hardly make it through the zoo today, and I took a lot of breaks. My ankles hurt so bad, I think I just need to take tomorrow and saturday off. Maybe I will just do upper body exercises.
On top of that, the antibiotic and the hormone pill I am taking right now are kicking my butt when it comes to the sun (I'm assuming). I have this rash on my hands, which is in the side effects for the hormone pill, and the antibiotic makes me MORE sensitive to the sun. I'm a red head... lol... I think I'm sensitive enough.
An observation I made today while making dinner for my husband.... EWW!!! The fact that I am watching what I eat and limiting things like calories and sodium... doesn't mean I can make him do the same. I made enchiladas, the way he likes them, which we have had on a regular basis prior to my health kick. The smell alone about made me throw up. I can't stand the smell of beef anymore. Anyway, all that's in them is beef, cheese and beans in a flour tortilla with the sauce. Then it's covered with the sauce and almost a whole bag of cheese on top too. I DID NOT eat that. I made my own wrap with lite tuna, spinach, hummus, and a little cheese in a f lour tortilla. Which I now regret eating the tortilla, I really need to stop assuming I know what is in these things I used to eat all the time.
I don't feel like I am exercising enough, but I know that I HAVE to take it slow. If I don't I am afraid I will quit. I am so determined, and so excited for when the pounds start to come off.
Oh, and my newest idea... I'm trying to jump rope.... not easy when you weigh 300 pounds and haven't done it since 5th grade... but I remember it being fun.
Anyway, I'm going to go massage my ankles with cold lotion, and put some hydrocortizone on the rash on my hands.
