Aw, I just want to RUN!

Monday, November 12, 2012

My gym is open! I have gas in my car! The roads are open!

But my STUPID HIP is still being stupid. Booo.

I did get in a short run today, and then some walking. Better than nothing! But I wish my hip would just BE better, instead of feeling better right up until I try to run for more than 5 minutes. I just want to RUUUUN!!!

Guess I should stop saying I'm going to call a physical therapist and ACTUALLY call a physical therapist.

On the up side, I did well tracking all last week and the weekend. Turned down a chocolate chip cookie and beer on Friday night! I said "I CAN have them. I could choose to go over my calorie range for the day by 1/2 a cookie and 1/2 a beer if I want. But I don't want to go over my calories." Had a fancy dinner out with family on Sunday night. I was over my calories for the day by a little, but overall the day was pretty well balanced, and I did a good job controlling my portions at dinner and passing up the bread basket, so I feel good about it.

I've seen 268 on the scale a few more times, so I'm counting it as official. I found a piece of paper in my desk where I was scribbling weights and BMI milestones and such, and at the time apparently I'd planned to be down to ~262 by the beginning of December. If I stay focused through November I could actually come close to that, so I'm pretty happy.

Also?? I'm going swimming on Thursday. SO EXCITED. A friend just started a new job at a University, and as part of working there she can use the athletic facilities. And bring a guest. Specifically, ME. I LOVE SWIMMING. And I'll be able to push myself and torch calories without bothering my stupid hip. AWESOME!

    Nice! I love swimming so much!!! I'm kept from running sometimes because of my knee. It's so annoying!

    Awesome!!

My gym doesn't have a pool, but to compensate we're allowed to go to the local swim school for free lap swim. I'm trying to work up the nerve to go one of these days. I'm terrified of looking like goon in front of swim instructors and little kids that go to swim meets every week. My BF keeps saying "No one can see you once you're in the water!"

Maybe this weekend I'll give it a go. It's a shame to let my $40 one-piece just sit in my drawer all winter.

    Hurray for open gyms, cars with gas and roads being open!!! As for the hip...yeah, I vote for you calling a physical therapist. Props to you for still exercising though!! But yeah, call already! K? Great. Thanks. =D

Rock on for tracking and making good decisions! You'll be at 262 in no time! Especially since you'll be swimming and burning those calories like nobody's business without agitating your hip. Way to make it work and hurray for this friend of yours that's taking you swimming. LOVE it. Keep up the good work!

    Awesome. I love swimming too. I hope your hip gets better so you can run but walking is good while you can't run. emoticon
