...or at least a size smaller than normal. I've been stuck in size for a while. Before Christmas I got into a size 17 nicely but, they hugged my inner thigh fat in a less than flattering way. Today I tried on a pair of 15/16's in hopes that they fit. And they did!
I've been making sure to get in at least 10 minutes of toning everyday and some days just winging it with the moves I know and doing my own full body thing (about 20 - 30 minutes worth). I"m starting to notice I'm looking really toned everywhere but my middle. Even my butt looks better. That stubborn belly fat is clinging to me for dear life....and it's what I hate the most.
I got to enjoy me some General Tso chicken for lunch. I aimed for only eating half of it but, I couldn't stop myself. I was planning ahead for breakfast this morning and only ate a individual packet of oats with a 1/4 c. blueberries knowing I'd want the calories for lunch. Boy did I mess up! Hubby wanted to go shopping before lunch which put us eating an hour and 15 minutes later than I normally have lunch and by the time we arrived I was HANGRY.
Today was enjoyable but, had some sad points. I encouraged hubby to try and walk around more than he normally does. He obliged and we left the wheel chair behind. That went about okay for about 50 feet then he stepped wrong in the mud and muck, tweaked his back just so, so and crashed. Now, he's back to intense pain and grouchiness. I called the doctor but, they just said take an extra one of his prn meds because there is probably nothing that can be done but wait out the pain.
It's frustrating at times dealing with his problems. If it was just one set of problems I think I could cope better. I just feel like he's falling apart and there is nothing anyone can do about it except wait out his miserable life. He tries so hard and is so critical of himself and I think that is the most stress because I'm the only one there to pick him up when he falls down and it hurts me to see it happen.
Well, enough being lost in my thoughts. It's time to go do my toning video and then make some dinner. Mines light because all I've got enough calories for a is a nice healthy salad.
