Weigh-In Wednesday

I'm joining in once again with Kate and Joy from Happy To Be At Home to update you on my weight-loss progress.

Doing pretty well. I'm making sure to add a salad or vegetable to my lunches which helps to balance the carb factor that seems to be more present with lunch leftovers.

I'm getting back on track with drinking enough water. Not perfect...but I'm doing better.

I've slowed down a bit due to the pain in my one knee. Taking a friend's advice, I'm icing my knee (with ice not frosting,LOL!!!)after running as well as every evening and applying heat to it before I run. It really does help! He also suggested going back to more of a walk/run again. This week I've been doing more walking than running, to give my knees a bit of a break. Hopefully I'll get back into the groove soon.

I made a chocolate pizza for our belated Valentine's dinner at home. It was very good. I only ate a small piece and sent a large amount of it the next day when my husband went to be with some friends, leaving only a small portion in the refrigerator for him to eat over the weekend. I did eat a small chunk later on but wasn't tempted to overindulge. That is a big success!

The knee pain makes it difficult to keep running, so it's hard to know whether to keep on or just walk instead.

Plans for next week:
Continue on!

No weight loss or gain this week. I wish the weight-loss would go faster but I am grateful for the discipline I am learning. It will be worth it in the long run!
