I have personal training at 2! And it was killer. I am exhausted. She had me doing arms and legs opposite each other; a lot of lunges and modified pushups. Then I did 40 minutes of interval training as part of C25K.
I soaked in the hot tub after and showered and I feel good, but soreish.
I did go to the gym and hit the elliptical for 45 mins.
I drove to visit my bff and by the time I got home I was way too tired to do anything but fall asleep LOL
Food was not great, but getting better.
Today I cleaned, vacuumed, and did laundry. It is so hot and oppressive here, I can’t even think about the gym. When it’s like this I feel so off, and my shoulder is still killing from the other day. I got lidocaine patches yesterday and that helped last night. It feels way better than the other day….
Also leaving my room causes me to sweat like a pig lol. Just getting a snack, I was sweating my ass off. Tomorrow, spinning.
I did go to Whole Foods this morning to get some food; enough until I go away and got plenty of fruit and protein and whatnot. Shopping for good for you food, for just a few days is damned expensive.
Hmmm. My calorie subtotal before dinner is 1205, which is approximate b/c I don’t know the calories exactly of 1/2 a banana or 4 blackberries. Anyways, yesterday my neuro said I should be eating 1000 calories or less a day to lose weight. The personal trainer and my doctor said up to 1600 per day. SO who is right? When I was on Optifast, at 890 calories a day, I was hardly losing weight and I was running 3 miles 3-4 times per week. I lost maybe 10 pounds in 3 months. I hate that this is so hard.

Today was my last day of summer work. I had a neuro appt and I slept for shit so no gym today. Also it was like 10000 degrees and humid and I just felt awful. I finally have pain meds and lidocaine patches again.
I really need to get focused on my eating. It would help if I had food in the fridge, huh?
