So the last month+ has basically sucked for a variety of reasons. I've gained five pounds back from the 20 I had lost, and it's pissing me off.
But the last two weeks I've been starting to get my head back together, and to get my body back in gear. I'm running again. I'm eating better. (Not perfectly, but better.) I *feel* more in control of things, and that is usually the biggest step for me.
Wednesday when I snuck a peak at the scale ('official' weigh-in day is Sunday) I was super pissed to see it back up into the 70s again. WTF? Once you get back in gear isn't weight supposed to go down?!
I'm kicking it into high gear between now and Sunday, really trying to make a dent in this. I'm hoping the uptick is just PMS and residual stuff and if I can clean up my diet I'll AT LEAST be back in the 60s by Sunday. I really want to be back down to 165 (my 20 pound mark) by a month from today when I go on vacation.
Basically I'm trying to prepare you for a giant rant on Sunday or Monday if this doesn't go well. Don't say I didn't warn you.
On the upside - I ran a 5K on the treadmill this morning in 39:30, which is pretty good for me. My knees held up, so maybe I've turned the corner on these silly knee issues.
