So yesterday I didn't workout. I felt off and upset. And yes, I was right, by the end of the day my knee was hurting, so it was a good thing I didn't workout. Do I regret not working out? Yes and no. I wish I would have worked out, but I knew I would have been walking slowly, limping more, and of course, in more pain. So it was a good thing I skipped it. We decided to go to a new chinese buffet resturant. Now, me and my mom are typical 5 plates piled high buffet-ers. We are the more get one or two bites of a couple of items. Did I eat a lot? Not really, but it wasn't that good. My mom liked it, but to me nothing tasted right. It was too sweet, too salty, or just not good. After that, I just didn't track the rest of my food, because I was in that kind of mood.
We found the ice box we love and will probably get once we move. We looked at tvs and kitchen organizers. We looked at living room furniture (ours is over 26 years old) and tv stands. We found a lot we like, but of course, when it comes to things like chairs, that are used everyday, we are keeping quality in mind. The biggest issue we have facing us is probably convincing my dad he doesn't need an 70 in TV in the living room. As he puts it, "I want the biggest one I can afford." Which translates to, "I want the biggest one I can find."
We got home and pretty much just plopped down in the chair, me with a couple Advil and mom just to take a nap. She's really bad about falling asleep in the chair.
I was so gun-ho to workout today. I got up early, started my ST at 8:25ish and got to the pool at 9:20ish (it "opens" at 9, before then maintenance workers are usually there cleaning it). I was in the pool by and doing my laps at 9:25 at the dot. I lasted until 9:45 when kids showed up. They were a different group, only two, but I still decided to get out of there. So I lasted 20 minutes before I was "ran out" of the pool. This is the third time in a row. And I keep getting to the pool earlier and earlier. I guess all the kids are getting into the pool spirit now that school is so close, but I didn't have to deal with kids in June and most of July, why all of the sudden? Just annoying. I really can't wait until they go bye bye, which is unfortunately the same day I start school (Aug 27). They are starting later this year. Frakin' A!!!
I am planning on eating a bit better, but it is hard because of all the bad foods I have in the house. Stupid HEB/anxiety/panic attack. I wasn't thinking straight!!!
I really wish I could write some of my goals out, but to be honest, I didn't get any my July goals accomplished and my June goals that I did got tossed to the way side.
July was not my month. Yes I lost a couple of pounds (like 2). But it was no where like it should have been. But of course, my knee really put a damper on both my workouts and my mental state. I am hoping to come back from it, but my knee is still hurting and I remember the last time this happened (nearly a year ago) it took months for my knee to feel better, and I wasn't working out at all. I just really want to get back on the treadmill, but I don't think I'll be able to for another couple of weeks. And here I was planning on running my first 5k in less than two months. I really think I am never going to get there. And that makes me want to eat some Ben and Jerry's (but I have been wanting good ice cream for a while...stupid Texas heat).
Well that's it. Really. I only have one goal. I would ideally like to be at 145 on the first day of school. That's 5 pounds less than I weighed on my last day of school two years ago. And thats 25 pounds less than what I weighed on my Endo appointment in March. And that means I have 25 pounds to go. If I could lose 25 pounds in 5 months, then maybe I could be at my goal weight/BMI/Body fat % by my 26th birthday (January 29th). That would give me 5 months (so maybe not) to do it. But I do know that I will get there probably by next summer. So score? LOL.
Okay, everyone have a good Thirsty Thursday (drink that water up)!!!
