Hello All! It feels like forever since I have written a post, let alone a Wednesday Weigh In. It is mostly due to my life becoming very busy and a little complicated lately. A couple of friends of mine run a regional publication and due to some unforeseen circumstances need some graphic design work done to help them out. Needless to say that has added to my responsibilities when I get home from work, which has left me minimal time for other things. I had a little extra free time today and I had some great news that I wanted to share.
First though, let us get to my weigh in. I don't want anyone to think I was hiding my weight because it was going up, but it did start to tick up and last week it was up to 177lbs. It was nothing to freak out about, but I was getting pretty laid back with my nutrition and portion control. I decided last week to really try to buckle down and get it right this week; combine that with how well my training has been going I was able to drop two pounds and get back to 175lbs. Now if I can just get those last to freaking pounds to hit goal.
2/25/15 official weigh in
Change: -2 lbs
Total loss from heaviest: 142 lbs
Current BMI: 27.4 (overweight)Change: n/a
Now for the great news! I was officially released by my physical therapist today! She feels that with all my hard work I have put in at home and what we accomplished during our visits I have been able to correct the issues that were causing me all the knee pain. Now just because I don't need to see her anymore doesn't mean my rehab is over. To continue to run pain free I need to continue the work that I have already put in. She has given me 7 new strengthening exercises and finished my training plan for the GCM Owens Corning Half Marathon. It feels so great to be back to how I felt before all this came about. I have learned so much that will pay dividends for years to come.
