Well, the big "thing" is over. The thing that was sucking the life out of me is pretty much over. I was so looking forward to celebrating it this week by resting and smiling and floating around the house.
Well, I got the resting part right.
I've been sick for a WHOLE week now. I was able to fight it off enough to get through the days until Sunday. Sunday through today have basically been bed-days. I am hoping that tomorrow I can get back into the swing of things. Slowly.
Exercise, however, will not be included in "the swing of things." I'm pretty weak. But I am trying to make some plans. Because you see, I have some renewed hope.
I have lost weight.
Granted, I gained over the last few weeks. But in the last two weeks I've lost almost 4.5 pounds. I've been working with a new fancy pedometer type thing (that I'll report on later....it was a Mother's Day gift). Anyway, it seems to be helping.
And now that my big ol' obligation is done, I feel like I can focus on a new strategy. This new strategy can't be super complicated or I won't do it. So I'm starting off with just a couple of simple steps
Use my new fancy pedometer type thing to shoot for as many steps a day as I can....maybe 6k at first.
Start up with Couch to 5k again, but this time stay on each week until I feel like it's a breeze.
As for getting ripped, that'll simply have to wait. I can only focus on a couple of things at a time right now.
