I’ve got good news, and bad news

Okay, so the good news is that the scale needle is moving again, thank goodness:

Height: 5’7″
SW: 174
Last Week: 167
This week: 163
Change: -4
Total Loss: -11
And then the kinda-bad news…
I have had pain in my right hip for a couple of years. I have tried literally everything possible to treat this pain, from ice to massage to new mattresses to anti-inflammatories. One doctor diagnosed me with arthritis, but my pain management doc wasn’t convinced. Finally, I had an MRI done a couple of weeks ago.
I have a torn gluteus medius muscle, and the severity of this tear is yet to be determined. I am to try physical therapy for 4-6, but if that doesn’t make a difference, I will need surgery. this means no running for 12 weeks (at a minimum – that’sjust an estimate).

So the workouts are going to be run-free for quite a little bit. I’m looking at hiking, yoga and swimming. I’m much calmer about this than I was last week (my weigh-in post got lost in the tantrum last week). So we’ll see how it goes.
Never a dull moment around here!

Weigh-In Wednesday (grrrr)

Exactly

OK, so happy Wednesday, everyone! Well, kinda happy. I am running, I am eating better, and this week we have another stall:

Height: 5’7″
SW: 174
Last Week: 167
This week: 167
Change: 0
Total Loss: -7
So, as I do for many other issues in life, I Googled it. I came across an interesting article at Outside magazine on not eating enough while working out, and how your body can prevent you from losing weight to protect you from starving… interesting….

Wednesday Weigh In, and I’m Back

goodnewsbadnewsThis week, I have good news and not-so-good news….

The good news

Last Saturday I ran my first 5K since my eye surgery! It was not at all my best time – not even close – but I still loved the experience and was so grateful for being able to run again, to have my vision still (most of it), and to still have the desire to get out there! I am running one again this Saturday and will surely beat last week’s time…

The not-so-good news

My Wednesday Weigh In yesterday is nothing spectacular – I am actually up a pound, and I’m not sure what that’s about. I’m not too stressed about it though – if I still don’t see any decrease next week I’ll reconsider what I’m doing and see where I can fine tune my eating/working out.
