That's not always easy to say the least. There are days when I have this amazing willpower and nothing will derail me. I'm gonna eat right, I'm gonna exercise, I'm gonna drink my water, I'm gonna stay positive. Lately those days have been more often than not in the past few weeks. That's a relief. I think I've been kind of obsessed, actually. My life was so stinkin stressful, the one thing I could control was what I put into my mouth and how much I moved. I think that is a good thing. There was a couple of times that I was so stressed that I actually refused to eat and exercised instead. I wanted to enjoy my meal, not angrily wolf it down. Course, then I ended up kinda dizzy after my stellar workout (angry exercise is, for me, a big calorie burn.).
The past two days I've had a bit of a hard time. In fact, the previous two days were hard but I fought and fought and fought to stay under that 1600 mark. The week before when I allowed myself 2000 calories was much easier. That's not to say that I didn't go over that mark though- I think I did at least once. This week I went over that 2,000 mark twice, but two of the days I was under 1600. Today, tomorrow, and Sunday I am going to still shoot for that 1600 mark.
I haven't burned as many calories this week either. I must say, I've been a bit sore. My hip has really been hurting. I think its from when I helped a patient walk to bed and he put all of his weight n me. Luckily that was only a one time thing. I've worked out- just not as intensely. Then, On Wed I tried my weighted back pack. After that my lower back was incredibly sore. Hmm...Gonna have to gain some more strength before I try that again. I should be able to do it. On top of that my upper back has been hurting due to a too big bra. I've went down from a 38 band to a 36. Plus, I'm sure the elastic has worn out a bit since March when I bought them. My husband and I intend to take a trip to the mall tomorrow so that I can get some new ones. However, last night I stopped at Walmart to pick up a sports bra for some added support for today. No sense being in pain. I found a 2 pack for $10. They're light support, so I just slipped one over my regular bra. Plus, I'm wearing one of those tank tops with the shelf bra. I think that did the trick, because my upper back doesn't hurt anymore.
Well, time to get off the computer. My hip is going numb from just 10 minutes of sitting. Definitely gonna work in some stretching and light exercise if nothing else- that always helps the pain.
