Day 22

Today was the best day since Thursday for my journey/body/mind.

We slept in a little, I got up and went to the gym, and I ate on plan.

I have been noticing that my shoulder is starting to bother me at the gym towards the end of my lifting routine. I'm going to try switching things up and maybe dropping the weight a little for a particular machine for a while if it doesn't ease up any. I have been really pushing myself on the Arc Trainer/ elliptical every day that I go. Music helps and I try not to look at the time! I really love the Arc Trainer though. It is the best cardio machine at the gym. The regular elliptical feels weird on my legs and over extends my knee some. PLUS I burn more calories in the same amount of time on the Arc Trainer. I have been calling that thing an elliptical for so long, and I know its a kind of elliptical of sorts, but it is really different at the same time.

I didn't buy enough fruits and veggies this past week to get me through, so since grocery day is tomorrow I am really going to try and keep that in mind. I have spent the better part of my free time this evening going over a grocery list and coupons. I also went through all of my pantry areas and took inventory. I should be good this week.

Sometimes I feel so boring updating this blog. My days are pretty simple, and I don't live an incredibly exciting life. I like posting here though. It keeps me honest and makes me feel really connected.

Good night!

Well, it wouldn't matter if it was more exciting to watch paint dry than read your blog (which is not true!) because if writing here helps YOU, that's what it's all about.

Glad to hear you are doing well, and also listening to the signals your body gives you.
