I've been doing so good lately! The scale has plateaued, but I am noticing changes in my shape and how my clothes fit which is always motivating to me. And my dad is now down 40 lbs! Almost as much as me! (At least some of the latest 8 lbs has been due to being sick with some kind of virus, but still). I am sooo proud of him!
I however have encounter a slight hurdle. I've been rocking the fitness this month. Over 1,100 minutes so far! But I had noticed over the last week and a half or so that the "normal" pain in my left hip from sciatica has been worse than usual. And at my regular chiropractor appointment, I found out why. Apparently, somehow, at some point, I managed to sprain a muscle in my left hip. How the heck does a person manage to do that?! So, I've had to tone back the workouts and was going to sit out on my softball games tonight (which ended up getting rained out anyway). And I feel...well...lazy. Not something that had ever bothered me before, but this 6 week streak of at least 10 minutes of fitness every day apparently has helped make fitness an important and desirable part of my life! I guess that in itself is an accomplishment and a wonderful progression in my weight-loss journey. So yay for that and thank you SparkCoach! Still makes it very frustrating to not be able to do my normal, harder workouts. Back to the chiropractor again today, so we'll see what she says/recommends!
