So in spite of myself I managed not to gain weight this week. This week was a struggle and I'm not sure exactly why. I was very tired - again, not sure why. I wasn't all that hungry but did crave sweets more then normal. It was really hot here, really, really hot and humid. I know that may have affected me a bit. Also, my eating was not good. I didn't go shopping last week so every morning it was a struggle deciding what I should eat. I have to take lunch and eat before I leave school if I plan on going to the gym. Which I plan on every day but somehow manage not to do. I absolutely can not eat lunch at school because it gives me gas. Not a little gas but GAS!!! So school lunch is pretty much out at this point. One of the reasons I started doing this was to stop that gas I seemed to be getting every day and I think I've narrowed the cause down to bread. I'm going to go to Whole Foods this weekend and get some Ezekiel bread. That is sprouted grains and no wheat a…

Yesterday and I today I have been feeling exceptionally good. Yesterday I went to the gym after school and ran. And I got up to 5.3 mph or ~11 min miles - woot, woot, woot!

I also wore one of my favorite t-shirts that I haven't worn in a while because I did not like the way it fit across my stomach. Now it fits fine :)

Today was a little tiny bit of a struggle just due to some poor planning on my part. I finish class at 11am and usually grab a quick lunch then head out to the gym. Today I didn't have anything to bring for lunch so I thought I would buy something at the cafeteria. When 11 o'clock came around I wasn't that hungry and decided to just head home. By the time I got to the bus I was starting to get hungry. Oh, no! On the bus ride home I was getting hungrier and hungrier. Bummer. Today I was supposed to do strength training but since I was getting hungry I figured I'd head straight home. By the time I got home I had a bit of a headache coming on. I qu…

For a week now the inside of my right ankle and arch have been hurting. Because this has been hurting, I walk funny. Because I walk funny my knee also hurts:



See the things that are labeled cartlidge? I don't have those. I had them removed almost 40 years ago, 37 to be exact.  So I have bone on bone going on. Have had for years. 99.9% of the time it does not bother me one little bit. But when it does - OMG!!!!

So because of the ankle pain, the knee pain followed.  Initially I thought it was from Zumba and weights and running and generally getting off my ass and moving. But it wasn't really getting better. At least not a lot better. I had started wearing my orthotics because I thought they would help the ankle - and they do.  But still the pain persisted. If I tried to walk in no shoes I had ankle and knee pain and it was not fun. Interestingly enough though, it did not bother me when I ran yesterday....hmmmm...

So I was thinking about the pain I'm having. I know I hav…
