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.

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.
