Week 7 Reflections

Friday, February 14, 2014

Happy Valentine's Day!

Starting weight=137
Last week=131.5
This week= 130.5

High fives:
-Lost 1 pound this week. Yay!
-Ate within my calorie range all week.
-I had to exercise lighter this week because of a painful knee. I was proud that I still managed to find ways I could do exercise while injured.
2x Zumba (60 minutes each)
4x Walk (45-80 minutes each)
1x yoga (60 minutes each)
2x dumbbell reps
- After 3 weeks, I think I am already making a little progress toward minimizing my bat wings.

Challenges :
-I injured my knee from doing weighted squats in HIT classes last week.
-My hamstrings have been sore, but mostly my knee hurts when going up stairs, sitting down or going in and out of the car.
-I haven't slept well because I keep waking up with my knee locked in pain at night and had difficulty rotating my position in bed several times a night.
-I had one very bad day where I felt weak and sore all day and ended up with a migraine in the evening.

Improvement Notes :
-To prevent injury, I am going to do pilates or yoga or light weights instead of HIT weight classes for strength training until I am much stronger.
- I realize over exercising, lack of sleep and skipping coffee and tea attributed to my weakness and migraine this week. I learned what not to do from this experience!

    In the past I habitually over exercise and get hurt, not this time, I am listening to my body! Walking is terrific and this week my goal is to add some weights! Hope you feel better soon!

    Listen to your body . . . that's the smart thing you're doing for sure!

HUGS and hope that knee feels better. And withdrawal from caffeine can be harsh!

    Great week! Sorry about the are doing so well at coping and modifying!
Detoxing caffeine can definitely make for headache, body aches, and fatigue.
Good luck with next week!
