    Primal Fuel
    ok two gym visits this week, both difficult classes. Hopefully I can get up early for tomorrow's Zumba class, I really need two of those a week to reach my goal of losing another 40# by christmas. I want to be 150 by the new year! I'm doing two total body weight workouts a week, I think that's enough. I find I really need two days between those, not one. I hurt my hip this week, I think the bursae is inflames and it hurts to walk but I notice with ibuprofin I did ok last night and put in 5 miles. I started running a little on Sunday and plan to walk/run on weekends.

    191.4 today

    Oh dear, I think I have over done it. My hip has been hurting me since Tuesday, I've been getting by with ibuprofin and walking anyway. It feels like something in the stabilization of the hip, maybe even the bursae. Wednesday I did Zumba and saturday too, and I felt my hip and knees being torqued with help from my inappropriate footwear. Sunday I had a teacher training class, and we did an entire day on uttanasana (forward bend) so I did about 40 forward bends as each student practiced "teaching" it. Subsequently I have majorly overstretched hamstrings! So Sunday night I decided, no I'm not going to walk I'm too tired and overstretched... then my husband brought home a pizza for the kids and I found myself wolfing down a piece. I felt awful within 10 minutes (my first wheat and tomato in almost 4 months!) so I ended up doing 10,100 steps that night anyway.

    Yesterday (Monday) was the weight training class and again, I overworked my over-stretched legs : / boy i am hurting! I have decided that the nightly walks take precedence over other forms of excersize so if anything has to go, it is stuff that might interfere with walking. I think weight training is important, and the cardio (Zumba) is important, but those without walking probably won't result in any weight loss whereas walking without cardio or weights will on its own.

    I think I'll call my bro who is a personal trainer and ask what he thinks I should do - today I am going to do IF and rest, maybe break through this stall (I've bobbed up over 192 and stayed there for the past few days). Amazing what a little grain can do! I've been feeling SO munchy lately, I ordered some more 7 Keto and it should arrive today and I think that will help; Ive been out for almost 2 weeks.

    192.4 today (what? gaining?)

    Phew, 189.2 :^) I really wanted to move as far away from 200 as possible, and being in the 190s was still too close for my comfort. I always stop losing, and regain a few pounds during pms week and thats over now and things should go on as before.

    I have had to temporarily stop upper body workouts as I seem to have opened up a small surgery site on my back. I am still going to do my yoga teacher training so hopefully that won't bother it too much.

    I have moved it up to walking at least 12,000 steps a day instead of 10,000.

    I got down to 185.8 but I hate how I fluctuate throughout the day, in the evening I'm always close to 5# up, then by 8am I get down lower than the day before, at least by .2 .

    Crap, a whole week with NO net loss : / this always depresses me because in the past I have always gotten to a (still high) weight and stalled out completely no matter what.

    180.8 at best today

    It happens sometimes. You're doing good, though!
