Hello all! Just got home from my wonderful honeymoon in Wisconsin, in 60s and 70s weather, to hotter than you-know-what Texas at 110 degrees. UGH! Also came home to a MASSIVE (imo) weight gain ; back over the 200 mark. 202.6 to be exact. So of course I am back getting down to business. Let me explain my currently challenges:
1) While running the week before my wedding, I re-injured my left knee. Thinking it was better, I ran again on my honeymoon and re-injured the left knee at the same time screwing up my right knee. I am on crutches (or supposed to be) and I have knee braces on BOTH knees now. I am on a steady diet of prednisone and vicodin, and have a dr appt today to schedule PT for my knees, an MRI, and possibly surgery.
2) I worked out this morning anyway, no running! I am not that dumb (anymore.) But I did my ChaLean extreme Burn Circuit 1. I am going to try and go thru the program. With modifications as my knees demand. Today was lunge an squat heavy - not great for knees but not too bad either.
3) I am cooking all the food again which helps. My mom made lots of delicious not healthy food last week and on our honeymoon we cooked at home some and ate out some. I am keepinng a food log of EVERYTHING that goes into my mouth. And I think I wasn't calculating sauces and dressing properly so I will be tracking that more closely as well too.
I am thrilled to be married ot my best friend, looking forward to our happy healthy life together, and ready to see what new and exciting things await us! There is a lot up in the air right now, depending on what happens with my husband at work. Potential to move across the country, across the world, for me to start nursing school, or for us to stay here. All waiting on what the Army wants to do with the hubby. But for now, we are here in Killeen and we are beginning our life as a married couple, Richard, me and our precious Eva.
See you tomorrow - I think posting regularly helps me stay on track too!
