What a week!!  It was not only crazy hot but I was so damn determined to get myself back in the 260s. I did cardio like crazy and I made sure my food intake was nothing but healthy healthy healthy!!!

The week started off slow. Sunday was of course Father’s Day so I took the hubs out for supper. So dinner that night was a kind of write off. But all was good still. I ended up waking up on Monday morning really ill so I called in sick and stayed in bed all day. Didn’t get much into me other than some scrambled eggs and water. No workout that day.

Tuesday was interesting with my personal trainer. I still wasn’t feeling all that great from the day before but I didn’t call in sick nor did I even want to reschedule my session with my trainer. I had a mini goal to achieve!!  We did weight machines this week, instead of dumb bells. It was pretty hard. My shoulders are still pretty weak. They’ve been weak even before my collision. And these machines showed that I clearly have a lot of work still to do. But I’ll get there!!!  Then my trainer had me do an exercise where I had to kneel. Ouch!!  My knees weren’t happy. But we made some adjustments using some equipment so that I wasn’t kneeling down quite as low. And that seemed to have helped. We’ve made a goal for me…I AM going to go all the way to the floor one day!!!!  It WILL happen.

The rest of the week after my session with my trainer was a lot of cardio. I hated it this week. It was sooooo hot and I lacked energy. But it’s amazing what determination tells your mind what to do when there is a goal that is sooooo close you can feel it!

On Thursday I made the decision to rejoin Weight Watchers. My mother in law joined a little while ago so I thought why not. So Friday is when the meetings are. Which worked out perfectly because that’s when I usually weigh myself anyways. Well, I not only got into the 260’s, but I got to 267.4!!!  I couldn’t believe it. I was happy happy happy. My hard work paid off.

As you can all see, this journey hasn’t been an easy one. And I’m sure there are going to be many more hurdles to come. But I know that with every mini goal I successfully reach, the hurdles are getting smaller and a lot more bearable to jump over.

My next mini goal is to get into the 250s. I haven’t been in the 250s in about 6 or 7 years. Maybe even more. So this week I am going to do my very best at keeping last week’s momentum going!!!  And I have you all to cheer me on 🙂

Until next week…stay healthy, keep active. Every little bit helps!!
