I don't know whether to be defeated or more motivated. I think I'm choosing motivated. 240 on the scale today. It may be because I indulged on a tiny kid sized can of root beet last night or it just may be that I gained weight. Who knows?
I do know that the journal thing isn't going to work if I don't have it with me. So I put it in my purse and I'm trying it out today. I created a menu & shopping list in it this morning. If nothing else, it's allowing me to plan for the grocery store this time, rather than punt (get the Superbowl reference?) once I get there. I didn't shop last week in an effort to clean out the cupboards & fridge. I miss fresh veggies! Oh how I miss them. I'm super excited to hit up Costco & Trader Joes on my way home from work today.
Have I told you all about my calf? It's the latest in a long string of things that seem to be roadblocks in the journey that I'm on. I injured, pulled, hurt my right calf 2 weeks ago while working out with the trainer. Initially I thought it was just sore, but the soreness hasn't gone away. I've tried to run. Oh how I have tried to run. But it hurts. I can fast walk with little pain, but the elliptical and stair stepper and the running are no good. I did kettlebells this mornings and it was ok, other than not being able to do the burpies.
It's a journey, right? And I'm validated by knowing that it's MY JOURNEY. I just keep plugging along because that's what I do. Stopping is not an option and sooner or later I will get there.
