Quick Update

So, I only lost .4 pounds last week, but that's better than I had thought as I had done very badly the weekend before that.

Last weekend I tried to keep things in check so they didn't get as out of hand. I didn't do a whole lot better, but overall it was an improvement (despite it being Easter weekend and being surrounded with bad food and lots of candy).

I haven't been able to make it to the gym much this week so far, so I'm behind on my C25K. Last Saturday I went and did my Week 3: Workout 3 (and then some) and must have overdid it again or something because this week I have been plagued by a hip injury. I went on Monday and barely made it through about 15 minutes of run/walking. I had to quit. My hip hurt so bad that I was about to cry. Tuesday it still hurt so I tried to take it easy and just did some slow walking and some arm/ab strength training. Tonight, I didn't go to the gym at all.... which totally sucks. I have done very well with my eating this week though. That part has almost become a habit. I want bad things ALL the time. There is NO doubt about that. And I'm always close to almost giving in.... but then I know how bad I would feel after and I think to myself "I choose not to be fat anymore!" And I turn the food down. This gets harder on the weekends though, I have to admit.

It's so weird that I used to have to try to force myself to go to the gym twice a week and now I hate if I miss one day during the week. My hip feels a little better tonight, so I'm hoping that tomorrow I will be able to start c25K Week 4: Workout 1.... which is going to be SO hard.

Wish me luck!
