The First 10 pounds (or more)

Sunday, December 15, 2013

I actually weighed myself three times this morning because I didn't believe the scale. I now weigh less than I have in over a year. I still sort of don't believe it. I'm afraid next time I get on the scale it will be a larger number again!

I've been eating well all week, I'm very proud of the changes I'm slowly making. I'm also excited to see my husband enjoying my healthier cooking and coming up with his own ideas. My kids beg to go for walks now and the 6 year old is constantly trying to get us all to do jumping jacks and push ups.

My main concern is my knees. Ever since I tried throwing in a few 30 second intervals of running they've been rather sore. It feels like they overextended or something. I've been doing some ice and I didn't even walk yesterday.

And can I say how hard it is not to walk now? I used to fight myself when it was time to walk and yesterday I had to fight myself to rest. I know if I don't rest now it will get worse and I'll have to miss several days of walking but it was hard! They still hurt though, so I think I'll have to take today off too.

I would really love to go out and walk 3 miles today though. Even 20 minutes. LOL
