So I decided that every Monday is going to be the day that I check my weight. I want to see if I am losing weight or if I am gaining weight. This week I weighed in and realized I lost one pound. I was super happy with my results.I want to lose one to two pounds a week. I am going to check my inches lost in about three weeks (about half way). I decided this past Friday to work out and work hard on my legs. I manage to get my legs so sore that I was not able to walk on Saturday and Sunday. I then got food poisioning on Saturday night/all day Sunday. I am going to be subbing in the days this week to get back on track with my schedule. As far as my knee goes, I still feel pain. I am going in to the doctors next Monday. I am excited to see what they say. I am going to see if I can get an X-Ray on my knee just to make sure 100 percent that it is okay.
I think for me, if I want to lose weight I need to start writing down exactly what I am putting in my mouth. Starting today, Tuesday March 2nd I am writing down exactly what I am eating. I do actually eat really healthy BUT I love to eat a lot. I think this will help me to eat less and maybe drink more water too. I know I need to drink at least a gallon of water a day. I think I drink about one liter to maybe two liters of water a day. The days I go to the gym I can easily get two liters and the days I do not go to the gym I can easily get no water in.
Have a gym buddy SERIOUSLY. I have a good guy friend that has been training me. He seriously is my motivation to help me work out in the morning and get me sore. I have never been sore like I am when I work out with my friend. Group X classes at the gym are great too. I think everyone should take advantage of those cause our bodies get use to the cardio machines. We need changes... Our bodies want to stay the same so we have to take a lil challenge.
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR HELP. I am planning on looking online for stretches I can do for my knee. I messed up my back badly on Friday too cause I did not do my squats correctly. I think the correct forrm is important here too. Any advice or help is always welcomed. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you all soooo much!!!!!
