Well, I have really been slacking since I got back from Vegas exactly a month ago. I worked out really hard for the first week, but since then I have been lacking effort. I feel like I have no motivation anymore. Then, two weeks ago, I pulled a muscle in my calf. It seems like I always hurt myself when I'm actually really motivated; I think sometimes I push myself just a little too hard, which leads to injury. Last Friday, I had my wisdom teeth taken out. I expected to be sore for a couple of days, and the oral surgeon informed me that I couldn't work out or go back to work for four days. I already hadn't worked out for a week...now four more days of no physical activity. Needless to say, I've been dealing with nausea and headaches from from the pain pills, and the pain hasn't subsided. I am sooo ready to get back to working out!
I am ready to push myself, to lose these last 15-20 pounds. I want to cut down on my carbs and increase my intake of protein. I want to really start doing yoga at least once a week. I want to get more toned and increase my muscle size and strength. I want to get a flatter stomach, and I know that I must eat better in order for that to happen. I have a pair of size 4 jeans that I bought as my goal. I can wear them now, but I want them to fit perfectly. I can do this, I just need to fully commit and devote myself to this!
P.S. I guess I am back down to 141 since have my wisdom teeth out...that's the only plus! On the downside, it's probably all water weight and muscle.
