Well, that's a pound from the last update. I'm sure had I been able to exercise, it would have been more. Aside from a bit of stretching and some balance work for my knee, I rested. My ankle and knee are very troublesome right now, and my intuition said, let it be.
It's hard not exercising. I want to go walk. I want to get up and dance. I want to move. But sometimes, healing says, let it be. Be still.
I did make the conscious effort to burn more calories by keeping up movement when sitting. I'd set the timer and ever 45 minutes, I'd start doing something that took abdominal or upper body work. I also would march in place a bit in front of the tv or while doing dishes. Anything to just burn a bit more since I wasn't doing my walks or Pilates this week.
So, I'm being still...sorta. ; )
Calories have been 1400 to 1500, varying.
Support: I've posted on several CDCC blogs.
Book: Been reading THE SMARTER SCIENCE OF SLIM, taking notes on researchers and studies as I go, so it's slow going.
I will say that being further down into the 170s is very cheering.
I did lose some tatas. Went and bought 38DDDs, and they fit. Oh, well. :P
To the Challengers: The link is up. Don't wait until the very last minute. Go update.
Be good to yourself with wholesome food, adequate rest, healthful movement, positive thoughts, hopeful prayers, and loving support. Don't give up. Do good things for your body, mind, and spirit, and good results will eventually, in time, come. I believe this, so I am merciful and kind to my body, and keep the hope that continued positive changes will be achieved. Even if very slowly. As long as it's good, it's good. :D
Believe in yourself. Be good to yourself.
Persist...and be well.
Happy weekend, folks.
