This past week I did a mile with Leslie Sansone (a DVD, not in person!) and that prompted me to rejoin the WATP team which MAY have been presumptuous as today, when I tried to do another mile, I could not even complete the warmup. My hips hurt "like the dickens" when I did the first mile, but I pushed through anyway. Today, there was just no way. It hurt BADLY. So, in disgust I turned off the DVD and put in a video, (The King and I) and sat down at my recumbent bike, and did 20 minutes. So it wasn't a total wash...just very disappointing. WHY DO THESE DANGED HIPS HURT SO MUCH???? (I have had bilateral hip replacements, which were only done two years ago so they can't be worn out and they SHOULDN'T be hurting!)
I've been pretty good in the food department. Although last night I did eat an extra bowl of cereal.....Several days ago I had an encounter with some bakery cookies of the enticing kind. That was a no-no. Fortunately the next day my friend came over and I prevailed upon her to get that container of cookies OUT OF MY HOUSE. And then I took the remining third of my birthday cake and pitched it in the garbage (btw: DON'T tell my mother I did that!! It was a delicious cake and she worked hard to make it...I just did not need another layer of it on my hips :) )
So all in all, I'm doing pretty well. I've been exercising - if not every day, then frequently - and I've been making healthy choices. EVEN when we ate out at Friendly's ....I had the lowest caloried item on their menu and no ice cream. Now whether or not all this is making an ounce of difference on the scale I do not know. I haven't weighed myself for at least a week. I will weigh myself tomorrow. Promise. Somehow I feel cursed. Like it will be the same weight. Or more.
But we shall see.
I promise to tell you what the scale said. Keep your toes crossed for me. (and if you have RAD, they are probably already crossed!!!)
