We went to the gym early this morning and had a terrific workout. I got up at 6:30 and did my meditations for the complete workout, breathing, relaxing, visual imagery, pain reduction, the works and I feel better, more focused again. I spent yesterday with my hands wrapped up in a heating pad most of the day and they feel better. I am also taking 800 mg of Motrin 3 times a day which is starting to reduce the inflamation I think.
We started out with the treadmill and I did a half hour with the rate at 3.7 and the incline at 4.5. My average HR was 131. Then we did the circuit for a good hour. I worked more on repetition and not so much on increasing my weights. Took it easy with the hand ones and I wore my wrist brace. It went pretty good. My husband also took it a little easier on the weights. He was really sore last time and pulled a muscle. I told him we weren't training to for body building, so to take it a little lighter and go for more reps and I think we will both feel better for it.
I had some oatmeal for breakfast with some diced apples and cinnamon in it. Yummy. Maybe a little heavy before working out, but I ate about 1 1/2 hours before we went to the gym. Then I made a really yummy salad for lunch. I plan on a turkey loaf tonight but that might change as my husband seem less then enthused. The scale is just sitting there not budging again. Sigh. I seem to only be losing 1 or 2 pounds every 2 weeks. I know that is better then gaining but it seems like I am doing so much to get it to move. It has to be muscle.
One sad thing about losing. I got my favorite sweater out of the closet and it is hanging on me. I really liked this sweater also. It is so warm and cozy when it is cold like this. I will have to find another I like as well in a smaller size. I keep putting off buying more clothes because when I tried them on I am so close to dropping another size. I would rather walk around in my clown clothes for awhile longer. From a 24 to a soon to be 18. Not bad.
