I just read my last blog entry. It's crazy how defeated I was then. The yoga that I did that became a regular thing, and honestly the first few days I did it, I cried. My back was in agony. But, after a few days, my pain level decreased from a constant seven to a 5... And then a 3... And just a few days ago, I realized that even my sacroiliac joint no longer even hurts, which has been a constant for almost the past 13 years.
I think this can also be attributed to the fact that my boyfriend and his family just gave me a brand new queen size pillowtop mattress that has been so incredible!
I don't hurt anymore. It's wonderful!
So when I started exercising, I was eating whatever I wanted. The point was to not hurt, not to lose weight at that point. On the 23rd of January, I started actually watching my diet. As of my last blog entry, I was 179. Today I'm 166. Preeetty happy about it.
Had a stomach virus earlier this week, and it left me exhausted and dehydrated and I'm trying to regain my appetite still, so I haven't hit my calorie range in days (I'm in the 900s!) So my workouts have lacked the vigor they had before I got sick, but I'm getting back there! Woo!
Also, a few days ago, my boyfriend complimented my athletic thighs. Score! ;)
