Thanks for the positive comments! I took it to heart, and wrote “exercise“ on my hand in big bold letters. So when I got home last night, I would remember to exercise, and wouldn’t have an excuse not to.
Yesterday was our second anniversary so we had a special (kind of) dinner and Jeff sent me flowers! Which was an awesome surprise, getting them at work. We have a woman here who gets a bouquet every month, and I thought they were hers until I heard him say my name. I was so surprised, I got tears in my eyes. LOL, it’s not like Jeff doesn’t do thoughtful things, I had just forgotten that it was a special day for us, and was reminded of it when they arrived.
After we had dinner, Jeff needed to take a shower, but every time he has so far, he’s bumped his finger and it’s been really painful, so I told him to let me exercise and then I’d help him. I walked 3 miles with Leslie in 45 minutes, and actually felt strong! The last couple of times I did it, I felt really weak, even to the point where I didn’t feel like I could finish the video. Looking back, I think that’s because I had my abcess at the time, and it made me feel so much weaker than I am. So last night, I was feeling proud because I did finish it.
I also took my monthly measurements, so see how I’d done for June and I’m down another 2 inches! Which is quite a surprise since I really haven’t exercised in the last two weeks except last night. I’m trying to get back on this wagon, so I can keep seeing losses in inches and pounds. I have my weigh-in tonight at weight watchers, and am really crossing my fingers this week. I know my eating has been pretty poor, but I’m trying, really I am. And I’m going to keep doing this!
