However, I had the most pain when I got up this morning that I think I have had yet. I was even hurting before I stood up, which doesn’t usually happen. I think I hurt more on the weekends because I spend more time sleeping, and therefore stay in the same position a lot longer than usual. Maybe I shouldn’t sleep as late, but I feel like I need that extra sleep every once in a while. I will have to decide what I want more. I guess I could get up earlier and take a nap later in the day. I do not think the pain is related to the workouts. I feel better after a workout.I will just keep on plugging and hopefully it won’t be too long until it starts making a difference.
I think the 143 heart rate reading yesterday was not accurate. I checked it today and during this morning’s workout it read 113 and tonight it read 49! I think it is just that my monitor is not accurate. (I heard that complaint about this bike.) I’m not sure if the BodyMedia Fit measures heart rate. If it does, I will check it out when it comes in.I was at home alone all day without a car until about an hour ago, so I did some alternative meals today. But I stayed in my calorie range. It was kind of nice to do something different for a day. It lets me know that next month I will be able to handle the freedom of eating different meals when I want to. I know one thing, I need to perfect my preparation of chicken breast. I overcooked it a little today and it was a little dry.
I never did go shoe shopping! I did a little looking online, but haven’t found what I want yet. I want to make sure that whatever I get is comfortable, since I think that is important in how my back feels.
I did some reading this weekend and have a lot of thoughts about it, but it’s probably a little personal for sharing. I am just trying to get to the bottom of some lifelong feelings of unworthiness. I know it is at the root of my food issues. I truly do like who I am and who I am becoming, but I have to fight those habitual thoughts that have plagued me all my life and were reinforced in certain situations in my life. I don’t want to keep stuffing down those feelings with food. It’s all good!Have a great week, everyone!
