Can I just say how proud I am of myself? Is that wrong of me? Well, let me tell ya why. I have done so well with my eating. Yep, I'm patting myself on the back. Just can't help it. I am making good food choices even though I'm at a place where I eat in a big cafeteria type dining hall. Pretty much anything and everything you could think to eat and as much as you want. For breakfast, I am eating scrambled eggs for protein and plain oatmeal. Lunch and supper is a salad and chicken breast. Yesterday, I was hungry for something sweet after I got back in my room. I'm still sugar free so I ate a banana. I'm dedicated to this challenge. Finally reached that point where it's easy to make the right decision and not be so tempted with crap. I will let myself have "bad" stuff on occasion but I don't sit and obsess about it anymore.
As for exercise, my training is taking care of most of that this week. My leg was still hurting from the race so I quit doing everything middle of last week. But with training, I gotta do what I gotta do. But get this....I was doing kicking drills this morning with my hurt leg. I kicked the pad and felt a big POP in my leg. I thought holy crap, I really did it now. It was immediate pain. But I continued with the drills. Then I realized my leg didn't hurt AT ALL! No more pain. I could jump, walk down stairs, jog, everything without pain! So what the heck? What in the world did I have out of whack? The pop was at the back of my leg right above my heel, right where your achilles would be. But you can't dislocate an achilles tendon, can you? So wierd. And it felt so good, I went to the gym and used the elliptical. Can you believe it!
It's been a good week all around. I weighed in on Saturday before I left and the scale continues to go down. Two thumbs up!!
