I took another trip to the doctor this weekend, and I've been told to stay away from exercise (especially running) for a week.
How am I supposed to lose weight?
They took X-rays of my left leg, found no stress fractures, and deduced that it's a bad case of shin splints.
I have one week to get better, or I'll have to go to physical therapy.
Sometimes stuff that's good for you (running) can be bad for you too.
This really sucks.
It's R.I.C.E. for me.
Compression (Ace bandage)
Ways to stay active:
Do P90X upper body workouts
a million punches (hooks, upper cuts, cross punches, jabs)
I also weighed myself on Saturday, and I lost 1/2 a pound!
Well... a loss is better than a "gain" or a "stay." That's two sticks of butter, Baby!
I only have 13 more pounds to lose, and if it's going to be super slow, then it's gonna be super slow.
I lost most of the pounds pretty quickly, so I guess this is "payback."
Did I mention that the pain in the balls of my feet come back at every other run?
I wish I didn't have all these problems.
It's making losing the last few pounds so much more difficult.
How are you doing?
How do you stay positive when you're losing the weight so slowly?
Today, I'm thankful for this 1/2 pound loss. I'll just keep plugging away!
