Despite all of that activity, I have nothing *new* to report on the weigh in front. I hit an all-time low on Wednesday (which I already shared) leaving only eight pounds left to 100 pounds. Since then, though, I have bounced up and down within a 0.6 range. This morning I weighed in at exactly 223.0 again.
I must admit with my *huge* loss last week I expected nothing too substantial this week. Any week I have lost over four pounds has been followed by next to nothing the week after. However, I still managed a 1.4 loss this week, which is certainly respectable!
Physical therapy is going well, which I truly believe is helping me tremendously (not only in healing my knee, but with working out in general). Friday’s therapy was insane! They kicked my butt – seriously. My legs were trembling and on fire! As a matter of fact, my legs are still slightly sore today – yeah for new muscle growth/development! Hopefully this means I will be back to my regularly scheduled programming of running, lunging, jumping, and squatting SOON! I simply cannot wait!
On a side note, I have been watching documentaries this week that pertain to our industrialized food industry and fast food. The two I have watched so far are Food, Inc and Fat Head. I found them both incredibly interesting. Food, Inc made me want to give up all meat again (which I have done in previous years) and Fat Head made me want to eat more meat. Go figure, right? I will definitely be looking into more humanely acquired meat and animal by-products (such as milk, cheese, and eggs). The thought of animals being mistreated in those factories just breaks my heart. As I watch more documentaries, I will share with you in case you would like to watch it as well.
