Week 4: 0.6lb down - 8.6lbs to get back to GOAL
Thursday, September 25, 2014
Well life got in the way this week. I got sick and then my son got that virus that's going around and ended up in the ER all day Monday. So gee that meant that we both only had breakfast and it was a while before I was able to get good. By the time we got home it was late and I still had to get up throughout the night to give him his breathing treatments. So the lack of sleep made my cold come back. I ate decent but I guess the lack of exercise brought the scale up.
Anyway, I was able to get a in a run yesterday and I'll be hitting the gym tonight. I've been going to physical therapy for my left shoulder and yesterday was my last appointment. She said that I can start lifting heavy again but to take it slow and the heavier the weight the lower the reps. I also have to give it 3 weeks and if I need to then I can come back. I'm going to work with my trainer because I don't want to re-injury myself. I'm also upping my runs so I know that will affect the scale but I will fight hard for it not to.
So I'm still pushing and I've set a weight goal of hitting 155bs next week. For me it's a lofty goal and I have to keep it in mind when I get hungry and want to snack.
Until next week. I'm hanging in there.
