I've missed blogging...but I'm back at it I hope for a while at least. My weigh in this morning was good. No I haven't put the scale away, not until Monday morning. One of my weight lifting boos asked me to try flipping my meals, lowering my sugar intake, cardio 45-60 minutes 5-6 days a week, lifting and gallon water for a week and see if I shake my plateau. I did!!! I'm not back to 266.6 but I'm not up to 274.6 either. That's how much my weight fluctuated over the last 3 weeks trying to carb cycle. I'm 270.4 today.
So I'll talk with him today to see if I should make adjustments. I also went to foot doc on Wednesday due to pain in my right foot at the end of my day. Found out due to poor rehab (only 3 sessions) after my knee surgery that it has now affected my foot and beginning to affect my hip. My podiatrist was so aggravated that my surgeon didn't prescribe longer rehab. My honey had been saying the same thing and so next week I start therapy for the hip, knee and foot for a month. He gave me two shots of cortisone and boy I felt brand new yesterday. At the gym it was like I was back to my old workout speeds. I'm grateful for good and caring doctors. He pointed out that I need to have 3 moles biopsied that I have on my legs and ankle. Says it's dangerous not to have them check once they reach a certain size. So I go next week.
Now for the next challenge: this has already started for me until the week of thanksgiving. I will:
Continue meal flipping and lowering my carbs
Increasing my protien
Working out daily
Gallon of water daily
No weigh ins after Monday
No specific weight loss goals. My goal for this challenge is to get better with my meals and eating within my micros. To journal the good and bad foods and stay committed to these things. The scale will not rule this challenge due to weight lifting so NSVs will be my goal. This weekend I'm going to try on some jeans I know didn't fit and I will measure my progress by these jeans.
Well that's it have a great and successful weekend
