That may not seem very significant but, for me, it’s huge. In the past, when I’ve tried even a light jog, I would wake up the next day with a sore knee, even limping in pain. But nothing hurt. NOTHING! (Confession: Okay. I haven’t tried doing the yoga that was causing my ankle to hurt but I was content with my knee being pain free. Yay!)
With my knee finally showing signs of letting me do more, I decided to continue using the workouts on youtube on days when I have to go to the office. I also started taking the stairs, even though I’m only walking up a single flight of stairs. On days when I do not go to the office, I’ll make use of the Jillian Michaels DVDs I own and use the step to help me get stronger.
As for my weekly weigh-in, I managed to lose 2 lbs last week which means I am still losing the weight I gained from my birthday celebration but I’m optimistic that by next week’s post I’ll have either lost all of the weight I gained or be able to say I lost that and then some.
The goal for this week:
- Utilize the resources on youtube offered by Jonathan Roche and company
- Break out the Jillian Michaels DVDS on days when I don’t go into the office
- Use the step on days when I do not go into the office
First, I feel they should use only flattering light. Candlelight in the fitting rooms would make the whole experience far more pleasant.
Second, my mother thinks they should have a hotline phone in the fitting rooms. A hotline that goes straight to a suicide hotline.
Third, my friend thinks they should serve wine to women who are shopping for swimsuits. I think they should offer a glass for every suit tried. Try on only one or two, you have a glass or two of wine. Try on 12, as I did, you’ll not only not care how you look in any of the suits any longer, you’ll probably buy them all!
