Weigh Day (week thirty-seven)

Here is my workout schedule from this week:

Sunday – Legs & Core; 40 mins with Neil (11,434 steps)

Monday – physical therapy; 15 mins with Neil; 45 mins with Denise; 45 mins power yoga (15,490 steps)

Tuesday – whole body; 25 mins with Neil (13,710 steps)

Wednesday – arms & abs; 45 mins of hiking with my girlies – it was too nice of a day to be in a gym for any length of time (14,733 steps)

Thursday – abs; 40 mins with Neil (10,837 steps)

Friday – physical therapy; abs & arms (12,298 steps)

Saturday – 3 hours at the Zoo with my girlies (17,229 steps)

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.

GOAL TRACKER:
9 weeks; 5 days
23.2 pounds

What kind of week did you have?  Was the weather nice enough to take your workout outside?
