I must admit, I've been stepping on the scale a lot, lately. Not every day...but every other day. I'm just trying to keep an eye on myself, I suppose. I've been doing okay. I'm at 200. I'm confident that I will be in the 190's in a matter of days. BUT...I'm reminding myself that if for some reason I don't get there...its OKAY to maintain. I'm not letting people down, and its much better than gaining. :)

Yesterday...I set up my little net in the backyard and played some volleyball and badminton. I played hard and had some good fun with cool people. At one point it was actually snowing a bit...but we were still out there.

Today I am SORE! I was actually motivated enough to get myself exercising before work. However, I am so incredibly sore from yesterday that I just could NOT get myself to do it. I think I need to give it a rest...especially since its painfully obvious that I didn't stretch enough after my workout. Just for today..I'm taking things very easy. My back has been sore since Easter. On a scale of 1-10...I'd have to say that its a 7 at its worst. Its a constant dull ache that is making movement seem underrated. lol. Its a non-exercise day...but I like to fit in exercise whenever I feel motivated. Tomorrow I will hopefully be feeling much better. I can't stand this crap.

Oh yes...

For anyone who read about my 875 calories and thought that that was my calorie total for the day...I'm sorry if I worried you. I have no plans for anorexia. I might have body issues...but none so serious that I would ever consider starving myself. I just failed to mention that I was having a late dinner and that I would have a final calorie count between 1200 and 1300...which is what I was going for.

XO to everyone who cares. :)

    Sorry that you were so sore. I hope by now your back is feeling better. That game of volleyball and badminton sounded like a lot of fun though! :-)

    Good for you for eating sensibly. For me, I either have trouble getting even the minimum number of calories or I go way overboard and consume too many calories. I need to strike a happy medium consistently. Maybe that's one of the reasons I haven't done so well in the past few months.

    Keep up your great work, my friend!

    I think you're doing great! Those plateaus are so frustrating!!! I think it's normal to do that with the scale. I have to admit I do it to. I really only pay attention to the Thursday weigh in though. That's my official day. have a great week!

    LOL! I was the bonehead who thought that was all you ate for the day, haha!

    Volleyball is fun and I am glad youe njoyed yoruself, but if you are hurting, then you SHOULD rest.

    You are right, maintaining is good and you are not letting anyone down! Keep up the good work!
