You guys. I know that this potatoe picture is hard to see, but I did 3.54 miles on the elliptical today in 30 minutes. Shazam!
Also, I did eventually get seen by my doc close to 5:30, low and behold, 10 minutes later I was released with be instructions that I can do anything lightly, working up to running in two weeks.
“Short runs. Ok? Be gentle”
I go back in 3 weeks, the week before wedding :):):):):):)

Reading “Wild”

While sitting in the waiting room of my Dr. office. My appointment should have started at 4:15. My phone has lost 20% battery. There is a grown man playing Pokémon with the sound on and a woman telling us all her life story. I still want to hike the AT. When can I do that?
He’s going to see me for 10 min, tell me it’s fine see you in a month and I’m going to go to the gym. I feel skinny today but the scale is the same for the third day.

No you can’t see the whole look, but I look great except for these two spots. Lefty is my back and arm, righty is my armpit thingy. Goal? Make those smaller by next fitting in two weeks. I know I can’t do much in two weeks, but shush.

I killed it today. Calories were on point, 30 min on the bike plus 10 on the elliptical, plus 30 min of upper body with the trainer man!

Tomorrow I go back to the doctor to have him tell me more about my knee. Trainer man wants me to ask what sort of things I should work on (extensions or whatever).

Great day.

30 minutes per day. Walking, yoga, bike…anything. (Did it!)

Day 7 Weight: 141.2

This week was a big drop, part to do with shark week, part to do with being really the best calorie counter I have ever been, plus a return to cardio!

Am I a Pinterest rock star yet? Too many ideas and not enough money or willpower… I need something to enhance the table with name cards on it…

Two and a half hours of cleaning the house top to bottom will have to be my workout today… training got moved to tomorrow. But my ceilings have no cobwebs, my doors, windows, baseboards, and floors are all swept, vacuumed and hand scrubbed! Bathroom got the same treatment plus a new shower curtain and a tub scrub. Toilet is clean, microwave, stove top, and fridge too. Having a small place has its perks but man my arms are spent!

Tofu scramble with coffee, andikins, me and my awesome shirt in my apparently dark house, and adventures in spray tanners. Blotchy legs are not cool.

Today is my first trainer day at the new gym, second dress fitting, and house deep cleaning day. People are coming this weekend and my shit’s a mess.

4yo: “DAD! I just saw a deer! Or maybe a cantaloupe? Which do cheetahs eat?”
Me: “Do you mean an antelope?”
4yo: “YES! A CANTALOUPE!”

adorable.
