It's the tenth week of Fitness for Friday and I'm finally on board. Woo hoo! Been out of blog land for a bit visiting my daughter while Eric is traveling. Internet has been spotty, to say the least, so it's been impossible to get on more than a minute or two at a time. At a Starbucks stealing wifi at the moment so will try to do some fast writing and reading before you all forget me!
Eric - Still a Rock Star. He's held his 14 pound loss even with the corporate dinners and hotel food. Looking mighty fine, that man o' mine.
Amy - Lost 4 pounds at my daughters house! Woo hoo. More importantly, I've been six days without any pain killers or other drugs. Feeling like I might be getting away from them for good. :)
The food part: I tried a version of Lindy's 18/6 plan which I discovered really works for me. I start my day with a Cup o' Joe. Then, whatever time I have my first meal, the clock ticks for six hours during which I can munch on healthy meals, snacks, drinks, whatever. Once that six hours is up, I'm off food for another 18. It sounded terrible but actually was quite easy - fit my lifestyle. We'll see if it works when I'm back in the grind of the J-O-B.
The physical part: I am wearing my Fitbit and the knee is good enough that I hit 5000 steps two of five days. Not bad considering I've been as low as 400-500 a day while recovering. It's been two months. I get a little better each day.
The mental/emotional part: It's hard not having Eric home and I miss him all the time but I've been surrounded by friends and family since he left. The lesson here? I'm not good being alone. I need interaction. I'm a people person!!
Congrats to everyone who has been on the bandwagon all along. It's time for the rest of us to catch up!
