Oh, the strain I have put on my poor 34 year-old knees by carrying this extra weight around for so long! I think they would probably be okay if my office wasn't in a historical home that has steps from the parking lot, steps to the front door and my desk on the second floor. EVERY DAY with the steps!!!
Whine much? I know there are people that live in homes with steps, but I don't and my knees don't take kindly to all this up and down after running and strength training. And I'm not overdoing it, I promise! Crunch, crunch, crunch...I can hear them!
BUT...it's all worth the crunchy knees. I'm keeping my eye on the long-term prize. I've lost a few pounds, but you've got to hold on to those non-scale victories because the SOB isn't budging this week! I feel better as a whole, feel "slimmer" even though my weight is basically been the same for the past month.
I received a trophy for 1000 fitness minutes last month and I couldn't believe it...that brings my 5-year total to about 2000 minutes LMAO.
My husband has taken to calling me the "Workout Warrior" and even though he likes to tease, I can tell he's proud of me, and that feels really good :) I know that my body is changing and getting stronger and I'm healthier every day, and I love that. Now I just have to keep going to SEE the changes! That's what it's all about.
Have a great weekend, Sparkfriends!!!
