Weightloss Wednesday: Confession Time
The scale said I gained a pound and a half.
What happened? I was sick with a terrible cough/runny nose/cold. Exercising was virtually impossible, and I sought comfort in some old favorites (like chocolate). Mother Nature didn't help the effort, either. Life happens, and the only thing I can do is get up, dust myself off, and start over.
Sunday I did 3 miles on the treadmill, and Monday I did 2 more. Tuesday I rested, and today I did strength training and 1.5 miles. I'm sore, but that's okay, because I've acquired that "I feel better when I exercise" thing. My setback put me back on the other side of the "halfway point", but I'm working on jumping over that line (again). I can run for 10 minutes at a time now, which is something I could never do before. Small victories add up, right?
We tried this Turkey Burger recipe this week, and it was AWESOME. If you've never tried one, you will be pleasantly surprised! Great flavor, normal ingredients, and fast to cook! We cooked them on the BBQ and the Foreman Grill, and both ways were delicious! Our edited recipe eliminated the Kosher salt, used a regular white onion, and Frank's Red Hot. So yummy!!!
So, hang in there and keep up the good work! Thanks for keeping me honest!
