Okay, about my month. I’m not REAL pleased, & I have to acknowledge I have “logged” quite a few fitness minutes, & my new job is SO physical for this... woman who has suffered from knee “challenges” and turned FIFTY all in the past few months. :D
Seriously, I wore my heart rate monitor to work the other day, and in 5 hrs. I burned 1153 calories, & I even made the mistake of taking it off not realizing that I would then have to reface & block the entire store on my own (11,000+ products), along w/dust mopping the entire store & wet mopping 1/3 of it. So, I am guessing I probably burned at least 1300 calories or more, in one shift. I find so many other muscles ache lately that the knee pain is being “drown” out. Probably not a bad thing, & w/every new day, the pains all seem to be decreasing. Oh, and w/several new products I’ve purchased, yes… for knee pain, leg cramps, nerve pain (sciatica), etc.
I believe I will be working pain free in… another week or so?! Okay, it’s a HUGE prayer of mine.
My weight is not doing much, I did actually see 131 at one point this month, & it was SO short lived, I didn’t even change my ticker. I have traveled from my 132 up to 136 and back. I don’t believe I am properly feeding myself w/the level of activity in my life, and I’m adjusting daily.
Oh, one other thing, in my cycle 1 of the 17DD during Jan., I removed a ½ percent of body fat (in SEVENTEEN days), & I was quite disappointed. So, w/some additional reading & some input from another SparkPeep (thanks Imelda), I decided to do an “intermittent fast” (IF). I ate all of my calories for one day in an 8 hr. period & by the next day I removed ½ percent of body fat. I will be looking at this a little further & I am considering an “IF” once every week or every other week, as this seems to be a way to really change body composition, which is where I am really struggling. I just thought I would share that bit of info.
Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday, what ever remains of yours, until next time. ;o)
I have decided to make February a FABULOUS month, in a variety of ways, and you?!?
