Here's the latest since my last blog about getting back to the gym. I have been going regularly and have worked out with the personal trainer for about 5 sessions. Its a good start. However, I had an unexpected financial need arise which forced me to stop paying for a personal trainer which is a bummer. However, I do hope to be able to restart with him sometime in the future.
Now, the good news: my knee pain has subsided significantly which I believe is a result of following his plan to (1) stop using the treadmill, (2) start taking glucosemine, and (3) continue working out regularly. Also, the best news is that I have dropped one size in my pants and tops...and the scale continues to creep along slowly in the right direction. I have accepted the fact that I am not running a race to get this weight off and that it really does take time to permanently change old bad habits. (For example, he wants me to give up bread...hmmm, having trouble with that one.)
My Next Challenge: Its been two years since my last colonoscopy so I am now due for the next one which is scheduled for this coming week. UGH!!! I am NOT looking forward to it at all but realize its all a part of taking better care of myself. So, onward and upward!
