Trucking Along

Monday, August 06, 2012

OK so I think I'm doing pretty good here. I lost a few more pounds this week. When I went to the DR on Saturday (I had this weird rash on my legs, turns out it was some sort of allergy) Anyway she said I had lost 8 LBS since the last time I was in. She asked me what I was doing and I said " oh you know, what your supposed to be doing.... watching what you eat and exercising" So it looks like my hard work is paying off. I'm not in "one-derland" yet but I will get there. I'm thinking in the next two weeks. My 17th wedding anniversary is next month and I'm hoping to be smaller by then, not that my husband cares, he says he loves me any size, but he just wants me to be happy. I on the other hand want to feel good about myself and not hurt so much when I move around. Less weight means less stress on my joints so my body is happier. And I hate to say it but when I work out I do feel better. I feel healthier. I had to drop the C25K program, my knee was hurting too much, and my chest hurt when I was running, I'm not going to give up on it for good, I just think I need to get a little smaller then maybe it wont be so stressful on my knees. With the Lupus I don't want to put any undue strain on my body than is necessary. I bought a 3 day diet jump start from Walgreens today. I figure it cant hurt, the stuff tasted awful! You are supposed to drink 1 bottle in the AM and 1 at night, hopefully the evening one tastes better. Yuck! But if it helps cleanse my system then I guess it is worth it. Well till next time.

    I had to quit the 5k program, too, because my doctor told me not to run or jog, and she'd rather me not walk for exercise, either. emoticon All because of my stupid knees.
    I've realized, though, I can take the same principals from the program and just use the elliptical or ski machine or even bike instead, and be nice to my knees. :) Give it a try, I'm sure you can find something that works for you!
