Weigh-In | 11.15.10

I love my blog.  I love writing it.  I love losing weight.  I love sharing my success.  Today I will not be sharing success.  I will be sharing with you about failure.

I gained.  Yup.  I knew it was coming...  I've been worried that things were going too well.  That I was destined to hit a speed bump at some point.  I've maintained only once.  My gains were a big ol' goose egg until now.  Argh!  Now all that's changed.  Sad.  I'm up 2 whole pounds.  UGH!

Well, I know exactly what I did to get where I am today.  I did not eat well last week.  I'm not sure what it was.  I was just super-hungry last week.  This weekend I let the fat girl eat a little bit.  My husband and I went out for Mexican on Friday - and I thought I could totally deal with that.  Man.  We ordered our usual - fajitas.  We always split an order.  The chips kill me.  The endless chips!  And of course, there's the queso.  Ugh.  So good.  So bad for you!  Saturday I did go out for a LONG walk.  I burned a lot of calories, but it wasn't enough.  I missed THREE whole days of 30 Day Shred.  One day turned into 3.  The first was because I hadn't taken a day off in at least 2 weeks.  I ran out of time on Saturday.  Then I was feeling under the weather yesterday and didn't get it done.

See, I'm a little frustrated right now.  The "on my mind" section here on the blog has eluded that there is an issue.  A couple weeks back - when I completed the 45 min. run for C25K, I hurt myself somehow.  I don't know if it was too early to try for that run or what.  Since then, I've been hurting.  My leg hurts where it connects to my hip?  In the joint there... It's varied in intensity, but, the pain hasn't left.  I ran last weekend and didn't feel a thing.  This past Wednesday I went out to run, and immediately felt pain and ended up walking after a couple attempts.  I knew it was better to take it easy - I don't want to hurt myself any worse than I already am.  So - I'm about THISCLOSE to going to get it checked out.  Two weeks is too long.  I just don't know what I've actually done.  It doesn't hurt all the time.  Just when I first stand up, and sometimes lying on that side, and of course, when I run.  Weird.  It's really cut my activity down.  Running was my major calorie burner! 

Well, I got myself started off right this week.  I woke up early and got in 30 Day Shred, Turbo Jam, & a 15 min. walk before 7:30.  I've been eating well today.  We'll see what happens this week........


  1. Running can be a "pain" but keep going!!! =)

    Great Blog!!

  2. Today is a new day! Time to reset and start over. You can do it! Now following you :)

  3. Don't beat yourself up about it, see it as a learning experience, you recognize what doesn't work for you and know all you have to do is get back on track which you have already done. Today is a new day! good luck

  4. Hey girl, thanks for following me and for the prayers! Please go and get the hip checked out, if you don't already go and see a chiropractor. I work for one and I have him check my knees and hips and ankles after my workouts. It helps a lot.
