“I want to be challenged I want to work and I want to feel that I am not being held back that there is something in front of me something more inspiring than... just eating breakfast you know”
― Sofia Vassilieva
I had some minor set backs in my recovery. Today I visited with the doctor. The medication they gave me can cause dizziness. I guess I am the lucky one. I had to come straight home from work and take an hour rest. Luckily, a break was all that was needed and I was able to put in some exercise later in the day. I also kept the calorie count down. I feel good about my day. I hope I can keep the side effects to a minimum tomorrow.
But truly, what fun would life be without a few challenges? My newest challenge is to lose 5 more pounds in December. I also want to work up to my full workout schedule of 5 miles twice a week, one night of pilates and either one night of yoga or an exercise video. Also 2 nights of strength training.
My good news of the day: the nurse who took my weight was much nicer than my regular doctor. She said it was okay for me to weigh 178 (4 lbs of clothing weight since i weighed in at 174.6 this morning.) She said I looked fine and my blood pressure was good so no worries. I know that I still want to lose 26 more pounds to get to 148-150 and my regular doctor will expect me to lose at least 10 pounds, but I feel better knowing that someone else thinks I am doing okay.
